WHAT HIS PATIENTS ARE SAYING…

Broken Tooth

If you have a broken tooth or think you might be in danger of breaking one, book an appointment with one of our award-winning dentists. Not sure if your tooth can be saved? If you want to know, we want to help you answer that with a “yes.”

A digital X-ray will reveal whether your tooth can be bonded and protected against infection and injury, or whether an extraction is needed. In case of extraction, a dental implant offers the kind of fit that naturally blends with the rest of your smile.


Dental Implants

When you have missing teeth, you lose more than your smile. You lose functionality, which often makes it difficult or embarrassing to eat, laugh, and speak naturally and comfortably. Dental implants are ideal for anchoring dentures and replacing missing teeth, and restoring functionality to your mouth. Because our primary goal is to ensure your comfort, you’ll find the procedure surprisingly painless—and even relaxing.

Norge Dental Center uses macroview digital imaging to examine your mouth and to ensure the implants blend naturally with the rest of your teeth. If we find any bone deterioration, we may perform a pre-implant procedure to strengthen it. During the implant process, we place a small titanium post in the empty space left by the missing tooth. The post bonds with the bone to provide a strong foundation for your new tooth. Sedation dentistry is available if you prefer to go to sleep and wake up with a new smile.


Oral Surgery

Noninvasive options are typically the preferred method of treatment, but often, oral surgery is necessary for procedures such as dental implants, wisdom tooth removal, jaw correction, or TMJ.

You probably want to avoid surgery when possible. But when you need it, you should consult with dentists who will walk you through all the options first. That’s why Norge Dental Center discusses every available option with its patients first to ensure they avoid unnecessary procedures or costs. We’ve taken care of our Williamsburg patients, and we’ll take care of you, too.


Dentures

Dentures improve your quality of life and restore function to your mouth while also boosting your self-confidence and restoring your smile. A cost-effective solution for missing teeth compared to permanent dental implants, dentures provide an easy-to-clean, removable alternative that helps you chew and speak comfortably—and with greater ease.

We will work with you to determine the right solution for your needs, including which materials we use. Plastic prosthetics and natural-looking porcelain teeth are available, depending on your budget.


Inlays and Onlays

Inlays replace pieces of your tooth within the cusp tips of molars and are a more conservative option compared to traditional dental crowns. In the case of extensive tooth damage, we use onlays, which replace the entire chewing surface of your tooth.

Both procedures focus on only removing the decayed parts of your teeth, conserving more of your natural tooth in the process. During your consultation, Norge Dental Center will discuss all of your options—inlay or onlay, material, cost, etc.—to help you decide what’s best for your teeth.

Inlays and onlays are durable. Compared to most dental crowns, inlays and onlays generally provide several decades worth of tooth support. They also look much nicer than traditional metal crowns.

Norge Dental Center uses the CEREC process to fabricate your ceramic and resin onlays to complete your restorations in a single visit.


Full-Mouth Restoration

Patients who require extensive dental work—multiple misaligned, chipped, missing, or discolored teeth—have the option of a personalized full-mouth restoration. This procedure includes multiple treatments to improve your quality of life and restore function, health, and beauty to your smile.

Depending on your individual needs, we may recommend dental implants, bridges, crowns, inlays / onlays, porcelain veneers, and the replacement of old metal fillings. Whatever you need, we will design a treatment plan right for you.

 

The Norge Dental Experience

Your comfort is our top priority. While you’re with the dentist, we’ll offer you a pair of headphones with soothing music, a warm blanket and pillow, lavender-scented eyeshades, or a conscious sedation—because your comfort is important to us.

Your emotions are as much a part of you as your oral health, and your dentist and our team will not begin or finish a procedure without asking if you’re doing okay, and making sure you’re feeling up to speed.
