Hello! Welcome to the Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry blog. If this your first visit, we hope you find useful information about our Mt. Vernon cosmetic dentistry practice. If you have read some of our previous articles, we are glad you checked back with us. We post new articles regularly.
My name is Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry. I have been practicing dentistry in Alexandria for many years. Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry is a full-service dental office located at 8101 Hinson Farm Rd Ste 114 in Alexandria. In addition to providing comprehensive examinations and deep cleanings for clients in the Mt. Vernon area, we perform all types of tooth restorations.
When a tooth has decay or has been damaged, a restorative dentistry procedure is needed to ‘restore’ the tooth to its previous intact condition. A dental filling is one of the most common and well-known types of restorations. A dental filling is used to repair decayed or damaged tooth surfaces. Most people have a few fillings in their mouth.
If you have old silver amalgam fillings, we can replace them with nearly-invisible tooth colored fillings. These fillings are made out of a strong composite resin. Many of our Mt. Vernon cosmetic dentistry patients have replaced their old silver fillings with fillings matched to their teeth. You can improve your smile instantly and relatively inexpensively by getting rid of the ‘metal’.
Another reason some Annandale and Washington DC clients have had their old fillings replaced is because they are concerned about the possible heavy metal toxicity of the mercury in the silver.
If you would like to replace your amalgam fillings, call us at 703-996-4666 to schedule a consultation. We are currently accepting new patients and would be happy to show you around our Mt. Vernon cosmetic dental office and introduce you to our friendly team.
Smile – it increases your face value!
