Cosmetic & Restorative Care
Creating beautiful and functional smiles.
Cosmetic Dentistry in Charlottesville, VA
The process involves your cosmetic dentist removing a small part of your tooth’s structure so the custom-made veneer can be placed over the top of it. When designing the veneer, we take a digital impression of your teeth and then use 3-D technology to create a veneer that matches your specifications. The veneer is made using a CEREC® milling machine and placed by your dentist.
To begin, we isolate your teeth from your lips and gums. Next, Zoom! Teeth Whitening gel is applied to your teeth and a specially designed light is used to activate the gel. You can sit back and relax while we whiten and brighten your smile.
Invisalign® is convenient too as it allows you to eat, drink, brush, and floss as you normally would. Plus, they are custom-made to fit your smile – making them comfortable and effective. Visit our ADC dentist today and discover how you can improve your smile without any metal or wires.
This treatment is aesthetically pleasing but also functional. The composite resin is strong, durable, and long-lasting. Dental bonding can really improve the appearance of your smile using a non-invasive yet worthwhile treatment.
From the greeting upon arrival - a cheerful hello and no need to sign in to the final stop at the desk to settle the payment, Aesthetic Dentistry manages to be both highly efficient and exceptionally welcoming and friendly.

Bridges: When you lose a tooth, a dental bridge may be the most efficient and cost-effective way to restore your smile. Bridges utilize your existing teeth to fill a gap left vacant by a missing tooth. The procedure involves fabricating an artificial tooth and anchoring it into place with your adjacent teeth or crowns. The supporting teeth hold the restoration in place and return function back to your smile.
The simple process involves your dentist cleaning and numbing the affected area. He or she then fills the hole in your tooth with the composite resin and shapes it to fit your bite. The resin hardens and allows you to resume everyday activities.
White fillings are safer, more durable, and blend in with your natural teeth. What’s more, these restorations bond better to your tooth and last longer than traditional fillings.
A dental implant consists of a small titanium post placed into your jawbone and topped with a crown or denture. The jawbone bonds to the biocompatible implant to provide a sound base for your artificial tooth. This helps preserve your facial structure, avoids bone deterioration, and restores the function of your natural teeth.
Our team works closely with a local oral surgeon and periodontist who places the implant and ensures it integrates with your jawbone. Once the implant is established, our restorative dentists in Charlottesville, restore your smile with crowns or bridges.
Full: These dentures are placed when you have lost all your teeth on either the upper or lower jaw. Your dentist takes impressions and fabricates beautiful, natural-looking teeth, which are fitted onto your gums.
Partial: If you only have a few missing teeth, then a partial denture is created to fill in the gap. The dentures match your natural tooth color and restore the function of your smile.
After a root canal, we may recommend a crown to restore the look and function of your tooth. We use modern technology and equipment to reduce any discomfort and gently carry out the treatment.
Extractions are a routine procedure, which can prevent serious dental problems developing and actually save you time, discomfort, and money. We begin by cleaning the tooth and preparing the gum tissue. Once removed, the area vacated by the tooth is cleaned and treated. After the procedure, we may recommend that your tooth is replaced with an implant (not performed in-house) or bridge.
