Restorative Dentistry

Virtually everyone experiences a dental problem at one point or another, but thankfully, these instances don’t have to last. Instead, patients and families find the compassionate care they need at the dental office of Dr. Maria Van Huffel. Our Gahanna, OH location offers revitalizing services that rebuild chipped or missing teeth, and all sorts of damage in-between. We’re even the proud providers of rejuvenation dentures, a revolutionary method for rebuilding patients’ smiles when they no longer have teeth. Contact us today to schedule your first appointment or to learn more about available dental services! Patients from Pataskala, Columbus, and beyond are welcome.

Crowns & Bridges

If you have teeth that are injured or lost, the last thing our dental team wants is for you to struggle in silence. Instead, let our team restore the tooth and give you back much-needed function and durability with crown and bridge tooth replacement. Dental crowns are used to “cap” off an individual tooth, and can be effective in a wide variety of cases including severe decay that can’t be treated with a filling, weakened structure, cosmetic concerns, and more. They’re also important components of dental bridges, which our team uses to restore one or more missing teeth in a row. The crowns are designed to fit over neighboring healthy teeth, serving as “anchors” that hold the bridge in place for more secure and lifelike results.

CEREC Same-Day Crowns

With state-of-the-art CEREC technology, patients receive quality, in-office custom-made crowns and other restorations in one appointment at our Gahanna, OH practice.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Your third molars (more commonly known as wisdom teeth) are the last permanent teeth to emerge, arriving when patients are anywhere from 17 to 21. Because of the abundance of teeth in place within the mouth, wisdom teeth typically don’t have room to emerge properly. This leads to impaction, infection, and other unpleasant consequences. After an exam and consulting X-rays, Dr. Van Huffel may recommend extracting wisdom teeth to protect your healthy smile and prevent discomfort or damage.

Removable Dentures

Dentures are a tried-and-true method for replacing missing teeth, and many patients prefer them because of their convenience and reliability. Here in Gahanna, Dr. Van Huffel is happy to offer both traditional denture models and more advanced reconstructive solutions like rejuvenation dentures and implant-retained prosthetics for your benefit.

Dental Implants

Your dental implant will look and function so naturally that you will forget that you have restorative dentistry. Dental implants are a great way to get your life and confidence back and will have your smile looking as bright and healthy as ever.

Customer service is such a forgotten art. But at Dr. Van Huffel’s office they not only understand customer service, but have raised the level of service to an extremely high level.

Dr. Van Huffel's knowledge and skill is excellent and her integrity is above reproach. Her staff is friendly, efficient and professional. She is one of the reasons I chose Columbus for my retirement home.
