If you are experiencing oral health issues, our skilled dentists can offer honest advice and many treatments depending on the diagnosis. Whether you have a small cavity or missing teeth, it is our priority to repair the damage to restore your health and your smile. Our restorative treatment plans will only suggest treatment that is necessary and our compassionate, communicative approach will ensure that you feel comfortable with our care every step of the way.
At Smiles of Chesapeake, we offer tooth-colored composite fillings. These differ from amalgam (or “silver”) fillings because they do not impact the aesthetics of your smile. Both options help preserve and protect the natural structure of your teeth. Dr. Moreno will remove any decay from within your tooth before filling it with the composite to prevent further decay and protect the remainder of the tooth.
When your tooth becomes infected all the way to the root, Dr. Moreno will need to perform root canal therapy to get rid of the pain. This treatment requires the dentist to gently clean out and disinfect the pulp of the tooth and fill it with a special sealing material. The sealer we use is biocompatible, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial. This makes for faster healing and a strong protective seal against bacteria. Do you have a painful toothache, sensitivity to hot and cold foods or beverages, or grayish discoloration? These are symptoms of a tooth infection, so don’t hesitate to call us and schedule a consultation! The sooner you get professional treatment, the healthier your mouth will be.
Our CEREC technology allows Dr. Moreno to custom-design, mill, and place your crown in just one appointment. CEREC enhances the experience for patients in need of a crown, bridge, inlay, or onlay. Impressions are taken by the dentist using our digital scanner, and will then be used to create a restoration that looks and feels natural.
If you have lost one or multiple teeth, we offer dentures to restore the function and aesthetics of your smile. Traditional partial dentures are held in place with a wireframe that attaches to your surrounding teeth, giving you a complete smile and enhanced confidence. Full dentures are custom-made and held in place by friction. Dentures restore the function and aesthetics of your smile for those who have lost one or multiple teeth. Smiles of Chesapeake offers a wide range of solutions for those patients who are suffering from tooth loss including traditional dentures as well as implant-supported restorations.
