Zoom! whitening with proper maintenance can last for years, and we will offer you at-home touch up treatments with custom fitted application trays to ensure a long lasting radiant smile.

Porcelain Veneers – If you want a minimally invasive way to restore your smile, porcelain veneers are a great way to cover cracked, missing, discolored, or irregular spaced teeth. Veneers are especially useful for patients who are not healthy enough for extensive restoration.

Invisalign – Patients who didn’t have braces when they were young adults and don’t want to wear a mouth full of metal to their next staff meeting, often just accept that they’ll have smile irregularities forever. Invisalign clear braces offer a faster way to straighten your bite alignment, and thanks to the clear alignment trays, no one needs to know.

Tooth Colored Crowns and Fillings – When your tooth is damaged by trauma or decay, the last thing you want is unsightly amalgam fillings and crowns. While your smile function is restored, it certainly doesn’t look much better. At Smile by Design we offer tooth colored fillings and crowns to restore the esthetics of your smile as well as the form of your tooth, and our CEREC same day crowns make it quick and easy to put a smile back on your face.

Invisalign: An Alternative to Traditional Braces in Virginia Beach, VA

April 27, 2015

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — smilebydesignteam @ 8:55 pm
Do you often find yourself dreaming about having a
beautiful, straight smile that can light up a room? Are you content with the
alignment of your teeth? Many adults are unhappy with their teeth, and some are
even self-conscious about the image their teeth present. Generally, the go-to
option for correcting teeth alignment is traditional braces, but most adults do
not want to undergo the treatment. So, is there a way to straighten teeth
without traditional braces? Smile by
, located in Virginia Beach, VA, offers Invisalign, a customized alternative to
the metal appliances of regular braces.

What is Invisalign?

Our doctors,
caring professionals with years of experience, and their handpicked team of expert
practitioners are dedicated to helping every patient achieve their dental
goals. We understand that most adults do not wish to deal with the metal
brackets and wires of regular braces, as the tension in the wires can become
painful, and the look can seem juvenile. This is why we offer Invisalign, which are
clear, personalized aligners that fit around the teeth. These aligners are
removable, which allows you to continue eating your favorite foods, brush your
teeth, etc. Because the sets of aligners are clear, you can maintain a natural
look without worrying about people focusing on your treatment.

How Does It Work?

When you come in for an initial consultation, we will
examine your mouth and take 3D images of your teeth. We will plan your
treatment and send the images to a certified Invisalign laboratory. The
professional technicians in the lab will create your customized aligners, and
when finished, send them to us. When we receive the sets, we will have you
return to our office to pick them up. While you receive your aligners, we will
instruct you on which set to start with, how long to wear that set, which
aligners to switch to, and so on. Within 9-18 months, you will have a
beautiful, straight smile you will be proud to show off to the world.

Get the Smile of Your Dreams

If you are ready to finally achieve the smile you always
wanted, then it is time to ask our wonderful team about Invisalign. Contact us today and
schedule your consultation. We are happy to provide our treatment to those who
live in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Chesapeake, and the surrounding

Straighten Your Smile with Ease with Invisalign.

August 29, 2014

Having a misaligned or gapped smile
is never an easy thing to live with, and you may feel as though you are merely
settling for the smile you were given. Though you may have considered straightening
your smile, the idea of having a mouth full of metal may have deterred you from
seeking the orthodontic treatment you want and deserve. Dealing with wires and
brackets associated with traditional braces are never comfortable, and the
dietary restrictions are not something to look forward to either. Thankfully, Dr. Stephanie L.
Santos and Dr. Vinita John Folck

are able to straighten your smile with ease by offering Invisalign
to their patients at their Virginia Beach,
dental office.
The wonderful thing about Invisalign is the fact you are able to
align your smile without compromising the way you look. Invisalign works through a series of aligners that gently
straighten your teeth, and the aligners sit nearly invisibly on your smile!
That way, you are able to get orthodontic treatment without making it blatant. Our
doctors will make impressions of your smile, and send that information to have
your custom aligners made. The wonderful thing about having your aligners
custom made is the fact that your treatment is personalized specifically to you,
and it will ensure amazing results. You wear each aligner for a specific amount
of time, as no aligner is identical to the other. Each one is indicative of a
different step in your treatment process, so when you are finished wearing one
aligner, simply apply the next one in the series to continue your treatment!
One of the amazing benefits of Invisalign is that you are able to
experience complete dietary freedom. With traditional braces, there are certain
foods you cannot eat, as the wires and brackets get in the way. So now, not
only is your treatment more comfortable, but it is more enjoyable. Also, you
are able to experience better oral health with Invisalign. Any time you need to eat, drink, floss, or brush,
simply remove and reapply the aligner when needed! If you would like our
doctors to help you straighten your smile using Invisalign, contact our office today!

Contact our office in
Virginia Beach, VA today to schedule
your visit with our team, and explore the possibilities of Invisalign for yourself. We look forward to helping you reveal your
most beautiful and confident smile yet. Our practice serves patients throughout
the Virginia Beach area, including Norfolk, Sandbridge, Portsmouth, Fort Story, and beyond.
