Having a solid oral healthcare plan is the best way to prevent most dental problems. For most patients, this involves daily at-home care combined with biannual dental visits for professional cleanings, x-rays, and routine screenings. Lack of a good oral health care plan puts you at greater risk of developing serious oral conditions and diseases. Such as periodontal (gum) disease, tooth decay, oral cancer, and other infectious conditions.

Routine dental care and early intervention can fix long-term dental problems. It can also decrease a patients’ risk for developing a range of overall health problems. Dr. Andrew Cobb provides minimally invasive dentistry in Washington, D.C.

General dental services may include:

  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Minimally-invasive Inlays and Onlays
  • Dental crowns
  • Non-Surgical periodontal care

Biocompatible tooth-colored fillings

Biocompatible tooth-colored fillings match the color of your natural teeth. They are metal-free, making them a much safer, more effective, and discreet treatment option. They are a durable, tooth-colored composite material that adheres more strongly to the teeth than metal alternatives. We use this material in the majority of cases.

Advantages include:

  • Less tooth preparation
  • Less invasive procedure
  • Bonded directly to teeth for improved strength
  • Mercury and metal-free

Minimally Invasive Inlays and Onlays

We use inlays and onlays when a tooth has sustained too much damage for a simple filling. Our dentists can use a range of materials, from tooth-colored porcelain to composite resins. The dental laboratory creates the best Inlays and onlays using a precise 3D digital scan of the tooth.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a highly versatile dental restoration for improving the health and appearance of a damaged or decayed tooth. They can have both cosmetic and restorative purposes. We place high-quality dental crowns using a variety of materials and advanced 3-D design capability. Dr. Cobb and Dr. Cima place dental crowns to restore the stability of a tooth after removal of a cavity or after a root canal. Your dentist also places crowns as part of a dental implant to replace a lost tooth.

Once in place, a dental crown will support natural tooth structure as well as the function of the bite. Maintaining your dental health with regular dental care and daily oral hygiene will sustain the longevity of a dental crown. A well-maintained crown can last for 10 years or more.

Non-Surgical Periodontal Care

Healthy gums and supporting structures are the backbones of maintaining perfect long-term dental health. Periodontal (gum) disease is responsible for a host of unpleasant symptoms, including bleeding, bad breath, recession, and tooth loss.

Unhealthy gums have links to a number of serious health issues including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and dementia. When gum health fails, the teeth are usually quick to follow. Our complete dentistry approach recognizes that gum health is the foundation of great teeth and a beautiful lasting smile.
