Implant Dentistry

Dental implants provide the most secure and functional replacement for your missing teeth, allowing your smile to look completely natural. At Centreville Dental Wellness Center, we offer a range of options for your dental implants, all expertly placed to last a lifetime.

Dental implants are used to replace tooth roots that have been damaged by decay, injury or periodontal diseases like gingivitis. The implants provide a foundation for durable replacement teeth that look and feel natural. Used to fill spaces, replace missing teeth and support dentures, implants are a great and long-lasting solution for anyone who wishes to improve their smile.

Most commonly, dental implants are placed surgically into the jawbone using cylinders, screws or blades, and each implant can hold one or more artificial teeth. This technique is often used for patients as an alternative to removable dentures or bridges.

During the dental implant procedure, a tooth root implant made of titanium is inserted into the missing tooth’s bone socket. The jawbone grows around the metal post as it heals, securing the post in the jaw.

After the dental implant has bonded with the jaw, a small metal collector piece is attached to the implant to secure the new tooth. The dentist makes impressions of the teeth, creating a detailed mold of the patient’s bite which serves as a model for the new tooth or teeth. The replacement tooth, known as a crown, is then attached to the connector post. The new teeth are matched to the color of the patient’s natural teeth and are placed securely in the jawbone, making the implant look, function and feel just like natural teeth.

“Dental implants changed my life. After missing teeth for years, they truly felt like a miracle. Dr. Abel walked me through the entire process. It was easy and painless. I’m proud to show my teeth for the first time in a long time!”

Implant dentistry procedures cause very little discomfort, but the benefits of dental implants are great. The natural look of implants can improve the patient’s appearance and self-confidence and reduce the discomfort often associated with removable dentures. Poor-fitting dentures can cause difficulty speaking and eating and often require the use of messy adhesive. Implant dentistry eliminates these problems. With the proper care, implants are permanent, durable and may last a lifetime.

We look forward to the opportunity to serve you and if we can be of service, please refer to our Patient Library section, or if you would like to request an appointment, please contact us by email.

What Our Patients Say

Dr Rena Vakay and her staff are truly the best. I have been going to the practice for many, many years and their professionalism is over the top. Long before Covid Centreville Dental Wellness has been top gold standard with office cleanliness. Dr Vakay is honest, bright, top rated and the best doctor I've had the pleasure of working with. The office is always in front of all the new technology. I can't say enough about this practice.

Kim M.

Dr Vakay is THE very best dentist ever. She is the only dentist who uses preventive dentistry rather than reactive. My teeth have never been in better condition. She measures my gums to be sure there is no change or recession every time. She also does beautiful cosmetic dentistry. I am proof!!!

Annie C.

Dr. Vakay and her assistant Christina are true artists. Their cosmetic dentistry skills are top notch. They made 5 new crowns for my upper front teeth and they look and feel beautiful and healthy. They were a pleasure to work with. When I brought to their attention that the color was a little brighter than I had anticipated, they offered to bleach my bottom teeth a second time (at no cost to me). That's true customer service.

Mary S.

I have been coming to Centreville Dental Wellness for 11 years, first to Dr. Judith Thomas and after she retired, to Dr. Jason Abel. My experience here has always been top notch and the entire office staff are professional and informed. I have had a variety of procedures and the office is good at getting me in on short notice, keeping me apprised of financial costs based on what my insurance will or will not cover, and making what could be a stressful time far less so. I highly recommend this practice across the board.

Louise M.

The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and I have never waited more that 5 minutes to get in and seen by either the hygienist or Dr. Vakay. The teeth cleaning is the best I have ever had hands down! My teeth feel and look amazing after having a cleaning at Centreville Dental Wellness Center.

Colleen M.

Dr. Vakay's office is Very friendly, detailed and efficient with their dental care! Old school patient service that doesn't exist any more . She is a "diamond ", shiny star!

Jason Y.

I have been going to Centreville Wellness for over 20 years. First went there by chance (there was no Yelp at the time), but have continued to go based on quality of work, price and customer service. They have certainly made changes to their practice since I first started going there; all of which were good. Dr. Vakay knows whats going on and how to take care of her patients.

Rob M.

Our family has been going to this dental practice for years, even before Dr. Vakay and Dr. Abel were there. We stayed through the transition because of the wonderful care we received. Everyone of the staff with whom I have interacted have not only been great at their jobs, but cheerful, friendly and kind. I trust both doctors. They combine new technology and treatment with old-fashioned, personal care. I highly recommend the practice.
