Dental Crowns & Bridges
When natural teeth have been damaged, broken, or even lost altogether, a custom-made dental crown or bridge can restore needed form and function to a person’s smile. Crowns are designed to cover the visible surface of an individual tooth, dramatically improving its appearance, alignment, and strength. There are several situations where a dental crown is an effective solution, including preventing weak teeth from fracturing, treating dental decay that’s too severe for a filling, repairing an injured teeth, and restoring dental implants.
Alternatively, dental bridges are composed of multiple dental crowns and designed to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. Certain crowns are designated as “anchors” that hold the new bridge in place over adjacent healthy teeth, creating a sturdy replacement. Our team often recommends implant-retained bridges as a reconstructive option that’s healthier and more lifelike.

Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy becomes necessary when a patient is experiencing dental decay that’s reached the inner chamber of the tooth, exposing the pulp and root canals to infection and significant pain. During this procedure, our Harrisonburg doctors will carefully access this vulnerable area and remove the diseased pulp and bacteria, sealing the area to decrease the risk of further damage. Finally, a custom restoration can strengthen and protect the treated tooth while allowing patients to maintain the remaining healthy structure.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Your third molars (more commonly known as “wisdom teeth”) can be great assets to your adult smile if they’re healthy and properly positioned – however, this is sadly not often the case. These teeth are the last to emerge, usually arriving when a patient is somewhere between the ages of 16 and 20, and most patients simply don’t have enough space in their mouth to accommodate them, leading to overcrowding, higher risks of infection, impaction, and other significant problems. Dr. Curtin and Dr. Janowski, will keep an eye on these areas as patients grow, and they may recommend extraction as a preventive measure to preserve the patient’s oral health and overall wellbeing.
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures have been relied on as a tooth replacement method for countless years now, and today, many patients still enjoy their cost-effective and convenient nature. Here at Blue Stone Hills Dentistry, our doctors offer full removable dentures, partial removable dentures, and implant-retained dentures for those who are looking for more stability and permanence.
