Your safety is our concern
The FDA has advised ‘vulnerable’ groups - pregnant and lactating women; women trying to conceive; fetuses, infants and younger kids; those with neurological or kidney issues; and those allergic to mercury – to avoid dental amalgam. We take this advice very seriously. That’s why we consider mercury-free smiles as a priority!

Adult patients in Yadkinville benefit from a range of cosmetic dentistry procedures

Age is not a disease. More birthdays do not equate to an unattractive smile. Virtue Dental Care offers preventive and restorative procedures to keep teeth and gums healthy and looking youthful.

The problem: Chips

Teeth do not get more brittle with age, but cumulative wear and tear arises from years of mashing, grinding, chewing, and biting food. While resilient, older fillings and restorations may be vulnerable to breaking and chipping, especially when biting down on hard or sticky foods. Years of undiagnosed and untreated bruxism can also lead to damaged teeth.

The answer: Veneers

These ultra-thin layers of porcelain ceramic are designed to look like natural tooth structure. Dr. Virtue will prepare teeth for veneers, typically by removing a small amount of protective enamel. This process makes room for the veneer. Bonded to existing enamel, the veneer covers up chips and other irregularities.

The problem: Decay and missing teeth

Receding gums and age do not go together, but years of living with disease can cause the soft tissue to part from the teeth. Harmful bacteria flourish in those in-between pockets.

While saliva flow doesn’t slow with age, dry mouth is a side effect of over 800 medications for chronic conditions. When sugary foods and drink are not removed with this natural cleanser, you are at risk of developing a major cause of tooth loss: decay.

The answer: Aesthetic restorations

As a biological dentist, Dr. Virtue focuses on maintaining good oral health to avoid extensive procedures. Should existing decay detract from your appearance, conservative options such as metal-free fillings, and inlays and onlays will be recommended.

Virtue Dental Care also offers CEREC porcelain crowns, dental implant supported crowns, and cosmetic dentures to address greater needs. These restorative treatments are designed to feel, function, and look like natural teeth.

The problem: Crooked teeth

As teeth are extracted or fall out, remaining teeth may shift out of place. Teeth may also be repositioned due to wear and tear.

The answer: Cosmetic braces

Dr. Virtue can prescribe modern orthodontics for adults as alternatives to conventional metal braces, such as Invisalign.

Invisalign’s straightening power comes from its removable aligner trays. They may be removed for up to 4 hours each day for cleaning and eating. Around every 2 weeks a new set of aligners will be worn to correspond with each stage of treatment. These dental appliances incrementally shift teeth into proper place.

Don’t wait to benefit from the adult cosmetic dentistry in Yadkinville that can take years off your smile while maintaining or restoring oral health. Virtue Dental Care Patients call (336) 679-2034 and New Patients call (336) 606-0040 for appointments.
