Restorative dentistry has always been the basis for a good family practice. People have cavities and they get fillings. Now, with our CEREC Same-Day Crown machine, we can make their fillings out of a block of filling material and cement it in and have a perfect restoration.
Life can be tough on your teeth. Age, diet, stress, and certain medications can cause damage that makes you less likely to smile. But Biggers Family Dentistry offers restorative dentistry in Midlothian, VA that can bring your smile back.
Call Biggers Family Dentistry at 804-621-2199 to find out about all our restorative dentistry services. They include:
Root Canals and Fillings Get Rid of Decay
With a tooth filling, Dr. Hood Biggers gets rid of damaging tooth decay and ensures it won’t come back. We can closely match your tooth color with a dental filling made of composite material so that no one but you will even know the tooth filling is there.
For badly decayed teeth that have become infected, a painless root canal is often the right treatment. A root canal can save a tooth that would otherwise be lost. Dr. Biggers thoroughly cleans out the interior of your tooth and gets rid of all the infected material. Then he fills the hollowed-out interior with a durable compound and places a filling to seal your tooth. He may recommend a same-day dental crown at another appointment.
Dr. Biggers will help to keep you comfortable during these procedures. If you’re anxious, we can offer you anti-anxiety sedation or nitrous oxide to take the edge off.
Specializing in Same-Day Crowns and Dental Bridges
Dental crowns and dental bridges are a specialty at Biggers Family Dentistry, thanks to the sophisticated CEREC technology Dr. Biggers uses to create crowns and bridges in a single visit to our Midlothian, VA dentist office. Because CEREC uses digital images and computer-assisted design to produce your crown or bridge, you won’t need to have messy impressions. And you won’t have to wear a temporary crown for days – or even weeks – while one is produced in an off-site lab.
Dental Veneers Cover Dental Damage
Crowns are a good choice to repair dental damage such as severe cracks. But dental veneers may be a better option for minor cracks and other flaws such as chips. Dr. Biggers securely affixes thin veneers to your teeth, where they conceal the problem and help prevent further damage.
Dental Implants Securely Replace Lost Teeth
If you lose a tooth, you may want to consider a dental implant, a tooth replacement method in which a small titanium rod is implanted directly into your jawbone. A replacement tooth sits atop the implant, where it looks and feels like your natural tooth.
Restorative dentistry services from Dr. Biggers will repair the damage and beautify your smile. Call Biggers Family Dentistry at 804-621-2199 to get your smile back. You can also request an appointment time with our online form.
