Have you watched an old movie lately and noticed the star’s teeth were yellow? We’re getting used to seeing beautiful, white teeth on TV and in movies, as well as in everyday life. A beautiful smile used to mean getting a full set of caps. But now we have the knowledge and technology to help everyone achieve good dental health and an attractive smile, without costly dental work. Our offices in Lexington, Fisherville, Verona, Dayton and Harrisonburg offer dental appointments, exams, and services to customers all throughout Virginia.
At Dental Health Associates, we love that our patients pay attention to their smiles! There’s nothing better than helping people stay healthy. That can mean regular checkups, cleaning, dental appointments, exams and services in Harrisonburg or one of our other locations. We can also restore and repair problems like cavities, gum disease and tooth decay. We can also whiten and brighten smiles in more ways than even Hollywood could have dreamed just a few years ago.
Because we are a family dental office, we can take care of you and your whole family. Starting your children on the path of good dental health care when they’re young goes a long way to a lifetime of a healthy smile and overall well being. We learn more every day about the connection between gum disease and conditions like diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Regular dental checkups and cleaning are as important to a healthy lifestyle as diet and exercise.
Your dental health is important, and we work with you to help keep the cost of dentistry as low as possible. Call our Harrisonburg office today to schedule a dental exam, service or appointment for you and your family!
Do you know that saying about an ounce of prevention? Someone was probably thinking about dental care when they made that up! Getting that twice-yearly dental checkup and cleaning can save you time, money, and inconvenience.
Your checkups are important for several reasons. All exams now include an oral cancer screening. Oral cancers are on the rise and often aren’t diagnosed until they’re in later stages. Regular dental checkups can help detect oral cancer before it’s advanced to a stage where it’s more difficult to treat.
We can also catch periodontal/gum disease early and treat it so you keep your teeth for a lifetime. We have better dental technology and therapies than ever, but first of all, we want you to be healthy!
Sometimes accidents and emergencies happen. Call us as soon as possible if there’s an emergency; we will get you in that day to see one of our dentists.Learn More About General & Preventive Dentistry
If you jumped to this section, we understand! Cosmetic dentistry can mean teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, fixing a toothache, composite bonding, or a full-mouth restoration (also called a smile makeover). At Dental Health Associates, our highly skilled dentists use the most up-to-date technology to make your smile as beautiful as it can possibly be.
Our dentists have had many, many hours of specialized training in cosmetic dentistry. In fact, the learning never stops! They are continually fine-tuning their skills through continuing education and clinics. They have also invested in the technology needed to turn any smile into a dazzling one. This includes the diagnostic equipment we use for your checkups and exams, as well as tools such as a soft tissue laser (at Staunton) that will meet the high standards our dentists have set for themselves.Learn More About Cosmetic Dentistry
Dental restorations cover a wide range of solutions to problems our patients can experience with their teeth. Filling cavities is just one part of what our dentists at Dental Health Associates can do to repair teeth that may be decayed or damaged. Our fillings are a white composite resin that is healthier for you than metal fillings, which can contain mercury. The composite material is matched to the natural color of your teeth, so your filled tooth doesn’t look any different than a non-restored tooth.
Other restorations include dental crowns, which completely cover a tooth, and bridges, which are used to replace a missing tooth. Tooth replacements also include full or partial dentures.
At Dental Health Associates, our patients are fortunate that we can perform root canal surgery, as well as place the crown to cover the tooth after the root canal. You can have all of your root canal work done in our office, rather than go to a separate endodontist.
We will also do minor tooth extractions for you and will work with an oral surgeon if you need your wisdom teeth removed.Learn More About Restorative Dentistry
