Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants!

August 15, 2014

Having teeth missing from your
smile can be detrimental to the way you feel about yourself as well as the way
you interact with the people around you. Our smiles are how we show friendliness
to others, nourish ourselves, and communicate with people. If you have a smile
that is not complete, you may feel as though there is nothing that can bring
back the life your smile once had. Though you may have considered dentures and partials
as tooth replacements, you may be wanting a more permanent solution to your
smile woes. Thankfully, Dr. Stephanie L.
Santos and Dr. Vinita John Folck

are able to give you the smile you have been wanting by offering dental implants
to their patients at their Virginia
Beach, VA
dental office.
Dental implants are a permanent solution to having a smile that is
not full, and it yields amazing results. You begin the process with a
consultation with one of our doctors. They will have to determine whether or
not you are a candidate for dental
my evaluating the current state of your smile, your gum health,
and your bone density. Dental implanting
involves embedding a titanium post into your jaw bone. Over time, the post will
promote healthy bone growth, as well as fuse with the implant itself, creating a strong bond. Once the proper amount of
healing has taken place, our doctors will make custom crowns to place atop the implant. The crowns look just like
natural teeth, making your smile makeover look as organic as possible.
One of the amazing things about dental implants is that you are able to
regain the confidence you may have lost. Feeling insecure about your smile is
never easy on anyone, and when you feel confident in the way you look, many
positive things are sure to follow. If you would like our doctors to help
restore your smile with dental implants,
contact our office today!

Virginia Beach, VA today to schedule
your visit with our team, and explore the possibilities of dental implants for yourself. We look forward to helping you reveal
your most beautiful and confident smile yet. Our practice serves patients

Restorative Dentistry for Virginia Beach and Beyond

January 9, 2014

A full, healthy smile is important for a wide variety of
reasons. Not only does a full smile make it easier to enjoy a broadly
nutritious diet, it also makes it easier to speak clearly and smile
confidently. A smile with missing teeth, on the other hand, or one held by back
cavities or a broken tooth, can make it more difficult to do all of these.
That’s why Dr. Stephanie
and Dr.
Vinita Folck
of Smile by Design
offer several of today’s best restorative
services. With these services, we can help patients enjoy good
oral health, in addition to restoring appearance and functionality.

services include:

questions about what we recommend, we’re happy to answer any questions or
concerns you might have.

Effective Restorative Care for Virginia Beach and Beyond

August 8, 2013

In our last post, we talked
about cosmetic dentistry, which is all about helping patients improve the
appearance of their teeth. Today we’d like to focus of restorative
, which is all about improving the functionality of a patient’s
teeth. In some cases that means repairing ones that are damaged, while at other
times it means restoring ones that have been lost.
Why is restorative dental
care important? Because without it,
patients may have trouble chewing or speaking clearly. Damaged or missing teeth
also increase one’s vulnerability to gum disease or decay, plus additional
tooth loss. Patients may also experience bone loss in their jaw, develop bite
problems, or see their appearance change.
Regardless of your own needs and what you’ve experienced, Dr. Folck and Dr. Santos are
confident they can help. They offer a range of today’s best restorative
dentistry services, including:
But which one of these services is right for you? Dr. Folck and Dr. Santos would be happy to answer that for you with a
consultation visit. Following an oral exam, we can help you understand your
needs and devise a plan that will help you meet them. Depending on your needs,
completing your restorative dentistry
plan may only take one visit, or it may take several visits over the course of
a few months. Regardless, a healthier, more functional smile will be waiting
for you at the end.
