Jong Hong, DMD
Custom-made to straighten your teeth, Invisalign® clear aligners are nearly invisible. Each aligner is made of a proprietary, multi-layer SmartTrack material, which gently shifts your teeth into place over time, moving them slightly both horizontally and vertically and even rotating them if necessary. The aligners are engineered so that as you change to the next set of aligners (typically every two weeks), your teeth gradually move into their correct position.More information
Cosmetic dental procedures are aimed at improving the appearance of your teeth, gums, and bite and fighting the effects of age and wear that affect even the healthiest teeth.

Professional Teeth Whitening with Opalescence Boost and Zoom!
Even the most carefully treated white teeth can fade over time or become discolored as the result of diet, personal habits, or aging. We will work with you to determine the best teeth whitening treatment for your personal needs and lifestyle.
The Opalescence Boost system utilizes a powerful teeth-whitening gel to brighten your smile by several shades in a short amount of time. The Zoom in-office tooth whitening procedure uses a unique light to activate its gel and accelerate the bleaching process. We also offer the option of using custom Take Home Trays for your whitening treatments. Depending on your needs and preferences, our dental team will help you choose whether to receive treatment in our office or apply it yourself in the comfort and convenience of your own home with a teeth-whitening kit.
Invisalign and Invisalign Teen
Gainesville Smiles Dental Care is proud to be your Invisalign provider in Gainesville, Virginia. Invisalign is an innovative alternative to traditional metal braces for correcting dental misalignment or spacing problems. Your teeth are gradually shifted into their optimal position by a series of custom-made clear aligners that are virtually invisible, comfortable to wear, and easily removed to accommodate activities such as eating or sports. Working adults are able to maintain a professional appearance and enjoy the dramatic improvement of properly aligned teeth without feeling self-conscious. Invisalign Teen is specially designed to complement your adolescent patient's lifestyle, which also encourages their enthusiastic participation in a way that traditional metal braces simply can't match.
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to the front of the teeth in order to change their color, shape, size or length. Porcelain veneers are stronger, more durable, and resist stains better than resin veneers. These veneers are a popular option because they mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth.
Are you experiencing a toothache? Have you chipped or broken a tooth? Do you need a professional dental examination to find the cause of your pain? At Gainesville Smiles Dental Care we offer a comprehensive suite of restorative procedures from fixing a cracked tooth to root canal therapy. These services do more than just improve the appearance of your smile. Our goal is to provide pain relief, restore function, and ensure future oral health.
At Gainesville Smiles Dental Care, we apply a custom, natural-looking crown (or "cap") in cases where decay or trauma has done too much damage to completely restore the original tooth. Crowns are an excellent alternative to extraction that offer long-term durability, protection from decay or cracking, and an improved, natural appearance.
A crown may be right for you if...
- you have chipped or broken teeth that are immediately visible as soon as the dental array is revealed. This situation could require tooth removal and cause a gap in your teeth that requires a surface replacement.
- you have undergone a root canal that requires a significant portion of the tooth to be removed to make way for the support structure and the cleaning process.
- you have weak and damage-prone teeth.
- you have a tooth that is severely discolored.
Emergency Dental Care in Gainesville, Virginia
A severe tooth cavity, physical trauma, and other oral health problems can be incredibly uncomfortable, and we are here to treat dental issues that just can't wait for your regular check-up. Whether you're suffering from a painful cavity, cracked tooth, or a loose filling, please don't hesitate to give Gainesville Smiles Dental Care a call! Research shows periodontal problems can potentially elevate the risk for other health issues, including diabetes, stroke and cardiovascular disease. Your health and comfort are our first priority. If you are in the Gainesville, Virginia area and experiencing serious oral pain, call us directly at 703-754-7110 and one of our team members will schedule a consultation with you during our regular business hours.
If you need a tooth extraction, wisdom teeth removal, or even bone grafting, we can save you the time and money of making an extra trip to see an oral surgeon. These procedures require only local anesthesia and can be performed here at our dental clinic.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
What is Sleep Apnea? Put simply, it is a condition that affects the way you breathe while sleeping. Sleep apnea symptoms often include frequent, loud snoring and interrupted sleep cycles. Specifically, this is instigated when the soft tissue in the back of your throat relaxes while you sleep, causing interruptions in breathing. These interruptions usually last between 10 to 20 seconds and can occur up to hundreds of times a night. Sleep apnea is typically more prevalent in males, smokers, and the elderly; it can also cause a wide range of problems from sleep disturbance to more serious health issues; however, with advances in dental devices, this condition can now be treated and controlled.
TMJ (Temporomandibular joint) disorders are a family of problems related to your complex jaw joint. If you have symptoms like pain or a clicking sound, you will be happy to know that these problems are more easily diagnosed and treated than they were in the past. Early detection and treatment are important because some types of TMJ problems can lead to a misaligned bite, pain, clicking or grating noises when you open your mouth, or even more serious conditions.
Here at Gainesville Smiles Dental Care, we utilize the most advanced, up-to-date technology in order to diagnose and treat dental problems with the highest level of accuracy and effectiveness. You no longer have to deal with time-consuming, uncomfortable traditional dental x-rays. Instead, at Gainesville Smiles Dental Care we use non-invasive, painless equipment to instantly produce high-resolution digital images and x-rays that allow our dentist to identify problems such as tooth decay, worn enamel, periodontal disease, or micro-fractures that would normally remain undetectable and untreated.
