Dental implants are used to replace teeth that have been lost due to cavities, injury, or gum disease. The implants provide a foundation for durable porcelain replacement teeth that look and feel natural. Used to fill spaces, replace missing teeth, and even support dentures, dental implants are a great and long-lasting solution for anyone who wishes to improve their smile.

The Dental Implant Process at Centreville Dental Wellness Center

Most commonly, dental implants are placed surgically into the jawbone and each implant can hold one or more artificial teeth. We can even use this appliance instead of removable dentures or dental bridges.

Here at Centreville Dental Wellness Center, we can perform the entire dental implant procedure all in our office near Fairfax and Chantilly, VA! The dental implant procedure goes as follows:

  • Implant Placement: During the dental implant procedure, we will insert a tooth root implant made of titanium into the missing tooth’s socket.
  • Healing: Your jawbone will grow around the metal post as it heals, securing the post in the jaw and making it sturdy enough to support a replacement tooth.
  • Abutment Attachment: After the dental implant has bonded with the jaw, we will attach a small metal base—called an abutment—to the implant.
  • Dental Impression: Our dentist will take impressions of your teeth, which will create a detailed mold of your bite. This will serve as a model to make the new tooth or teeth.
  • Crown Restoration: We will then attach the replacement tooth (or teeth) securely to the abutment post.

To keep your smile looking uniform and beautiful, we can match the color of the new teeth—whether a single tooth, dental bridge, or full set of dentures—to the color of your natural teeth. Our teeth implants 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!”

Why Replace Missing Teeth?

With our skilled and compassionate implant dentists, implant dentistry procedures cause very little discomfort, and the benefits of dental implants are great!

  • Eat what you love again | One of the hardest parts of missing teeth is giving up the foods you love. Even dentures can’t handle all foods you’d like to eat, but our dental implants can.
  • Protect your oral health | Missing teeth leave open gaps in your gums. These spaces could be filled with bacteria, which could cause painful infections. Replacing your teeth with dental implants will fill those gaps and protect your oral health.
  • Maintain a youthful appearance | Your jawbone fills out your face and keeps you looking young. Your jawbone needs constant stimulation from the roots of your teeth to stay strong. Dental implants mimic tooth roots, so you can avoid premature aging.
  • Strengthen your remaining teeth | In the absence of some of your teeth, the others might drift out of place to fill those empty spaces. You’ll probably experience extra wear on some of your remaining teeth. This can endanger the remaining teeth, so don’t wait!

Plus, our patients can enjoy the comforts of having the whole process done here—where your dentist truly cares about you and gets to know you personally while our team keeps you comfortable with amenities and compassion.

Am I a Candidate for Implant Dentistry?

We’d love to provide you with dental implants so you can smile confidently again. If you are compatible with the treatment, implants can drastically improve your health and quality of life. Almost all our patients can move forward with the treatment, but if you would like a better idea of what factors go into determining whether or not implants are ideal for you, here’s a list of what we will consider:

    Centreville dental implants patients of Dr. Vakay near Fairfax and Chantilly
  • Age: Implants can improve life at almost any age. Whether you are 22 or 88, you can experience the capability and self-esteem that come with dental implants. In most cases, however, implants are not recommended for children. If your child needs tooth replacement, we have other options that are better for their growing mouths.
  • Health: It’s important to get your oral health taken care of first before undergoing implant surgery. If you can maintain a good oral hygiene routine as well as visits to our office, there’s a good chance your mouth is healthy enough. If you are missing the necessary bone density, we may be able to graft some bone tissue in your jaw to support implants.
  • Periodontal/Gum Disease: One of the most common needs for tooth replacement is gum disease, and these procedures are usually successful. Tooth implants do not decay, which makes them ideal for patients with gum disease. Getting dental implants will keep patients with gum disease from losing bone mass in their jaw.

  • Dentures: If you wear dentures, you might be interested in a more secure option that stays firmly attached to your gums. At Centreville Dental Wellness Center, we can use dental implants to fasten them to your gums. Even if you currently have clasps holding your dentures in place, our implants can secure the dentures without needing clasps.

  • Smoking: Because of the chemicals in cigarettes, many smokers lose their teeth to decay sooner in life. Those same chemicals can make it difficult for implants to work properly, but our skilled dentists at Centreville Dental Wellness Center are ready and able to help you get a functioning smile no matter what it looks like right now.
  • Dental Hygiene: Whether you currently have dentures or painful open or infected gums, tooth implants from Centreville Dental Wellness Center can allow you to clean your teeth properly and thoroughly without causing discomfort or requiring you to remove them. Dental implants can and should be cleaned just like your natural teeth.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

Dental implants are a long-term investment. The cost of leaving an empty tooth socket untreated can be very high, because your other teeth can naturally start moving toward the socket, distorting your smile. Plus, the exposed socket can become infected. These problems cost time and money to correct.

Of course, traditional dental bridges and dentures are lower-price options to replace teeth, and they can be placed more quickly. However, these replacements wear out sooner, costing you more in the long term. In contrast, we carefully design each implant to last a lifetime, which can save you money in the future.

What Our Patients Say

Am I an anxious dental patient? YES!!! BUT, I am so thankful for Centreville Dental Wellness Center. Walking in the front door for an appointment, I am ALWAYS welcomed so warmly by the staff. They have the brightest smiles and emit such positive energy, and it's obvious they enjoy their jobs and each other. So thankful for the dental hygienist who is super encouraging to me, reminds me to breathe and relax my shoulders (even when I'm not even aware how my body is reacting!) I've been forever impacted by Dr. Vakay's technician during dental procedures who has squeezed my hand to give me strength -- such a small gesture but so helpful that I've paid this forward many times for others who are anxious! Dr. Vakay is always supportive, encouraging and emits such strength herself that I believe her and trust her judgment and recommendations. I loved hearing her say at my last visit regarding her job, "it is my joy and my purpose." There is no doubt she is doing what she is called to do! AND with JOY!

Joyce M.

I went to see Dr Vakay to get a dental appliance for my sleep apnea and ended up switching to the office for my routine dental care as well. The whole staff is knowledgeable and friendly and they made me feel very comfortable and valued. I honestly have never received such a thorough cleaning before and my snoring has stopped. Very happy with my experience!

Mary K.

I broke a front tooth crown off at the gum line. Dr. Abel was able to see me within a couple of hours After assessing the damage he presented me with several options for a repair and devised a way to hold a temporary tooth in place. Permanent repair is scheduled. I couldnt be happier with the care I received.

Elaine M.

I just recently moved to Northern Virginia and Centreville Dental Wellness Center was recommended to me and also had great reviews online. My first appointment was 23Jun2023 and everyone from the ladies at the front desk to Dr. Abel and his assistant were outstanding. Thrilled to have found this amazing team!!

Nina A.

Dr Abel, the front desk, hygienist team and everyone in between is At. I have gone to CDWC for years and sometimes travel 2+ hours for a visit. They provide organized, and trustworthy service, but more importantly personable with their care.

J K.

Centreville Dental Wellness was and is an amazing place. I had multiple issues and they were very patient with me. They are very experienced and know their stuff. I love them all particularly Dr Abel who took a lot of time with me and made sure I was straight. I pray that God continues to bless them and their business.

Arlene D.

I highly recommend Centreville Dental Wellness Center! I always have a great, smooth experience here. Dr.s Vakay and Abel are outstanding dentists, professional as well as friendly and approachable. The staff is efficient, welcoming and caring. I've been patient for years and cannot say enough great things about this practice.


WOW! I look amazing!! ; My 2 front teeth were worn and chipped. It affected my smile and confidence. After the restorative (yet gentle) work by the team at Centreville Dental Wellness, I can truly say this practice is second to none! The crowns look so natural and I'm so glad I can smile again!! When my husband asked me what I wanted for Christmas... said "my 2 front teeth" and thanks to the masterful cosmetic work done by Dr. Vacay and her assistant Christina, my Christmas wish came true! Gotta give a shout out to the friendly and supportive front office staff as well, Tonia, Sylvia and Sogand. Merry Christmas to all!!

Anastasia P.

Dr. Vakay and her team are excellent. They are careful, thorough, and attentive to the patient's concerns. They take the time to explain how to maintain healthy teeth and gums. I have always been completely satisfied.

Bruce S.

I've only ever been to one dentist, and don't have any plans to change that! Dr. Vakay, Dr. Abel, and the entire staff at Centreville Dental Wellness Center provide a patient experience that is both timelessly reliable and constantly improving. Recently, I came to them with jaw pain related to TMJ, and after real discussion concerning all my options, they set me up with a kois product that has eliminated the pain and dramatically improved my range of motion. It's been a true success story!

Jake W.

Ok, this is the first review I have EVER written. This morning I had a procedure done by Dr. Vakay with her assistant Christina, that was, without exception, the best experience at a dentist office I have ever encountered. The professionalism and expertise between these two was nothing short of a 'dance." | felt that seamless interaction, put me at ease. The front desk is wonderful to work with. I left another practice in Haymarket because of the way they handled the financial. I have great dental insurance and was told as I was sitting in the chair, that the doctor would not do the procedure unless I gave them a credit card. At which point I demanded to see the doctor and told him I was aghast at his greater interest in getting paid than my teeth and walked out. This is how a dental office should run, and they have hit a very high mark as the daughter of an orthodontist. Bravo Team Centreville Wellness.
