Dear patients.

We are happy to say that we are now open and operating under our full schedule.

COVID-19 has been a very difficult time for all of us. Many of you have been forced to wait for dental care, and we deeply appreciate your understanding while we kept our office closed to help control the spread of the coronavirus.

Your health and well-being continue to be our highest priority, and we opened with carefully planned and revised office procedures to greatly minimize the risk of infection for our patients and our team members. Our own families are also patients here, so you can be assured that we’ll be taking care of you just as well as we’ll be taking care of them.

For your peace of mind, the measures we are taking to provide a safe dental treatment experience include, but are not limited to, the following:

Upon Your Arrival at the Office

●     Patients will be screened BEFORE treatment and temperatures will be checked. Any patients showing signs of a fever or other symptoms of illness will be asked to reschedule their appointment.

●     ONLY patients will be allowed entry into the office. Parents and other family members will be asked to wait outside whenever possible.

●     Patients are asked to wait in their cars or outside the office until their scheduled appointment time.

●     The waiting area chairs will be spaced apart to allow for 6 feet of distancing.

●     We will ask that you continue to practice social distancing measures in common areas of the office, including the front desk.

●     The front door and the door between the waiting area and operatories will be propped open all day.

●     There will be no physical contact with patients with the exception of treatment.

During Treatment

●     All rooms will be COMPLETELY sterilized before each patient is seated, and public areas, including restrooms, will be cleaned and sterilized frequently throughout the day.

●     All operatories have high-volume air filtration and we have installed a whole office purification system. This system will kill the Covid virus along with other contaminates

●     Our team will STRICTLY follow guidelines set forth by the CDC, OSHA, and ADA in regards to personal protective equipment (PPE) and office sterilization.

●     During patient care, goggles or face shields will be worn by everyone and changed between patients.

●     All surfaces that came in contact with the patient will be wiped with disinfectant including the patient chair.

Checking Out After Your Appointment

●    We will be requesting prepayments when we know the amount of payment which will expidite your visit 

●     All efforts will be made to complete scheduling in the back of the office so you can leave without stopping at the front desk

We are proceeding with an abundance of caution, but we want you to feel as confident as we do that any visit you make to our office will be a safe one.

We also realize that many of you have been impacted financially during this outbreak, and we have solutions to keep dental care affordable for you and your family.

To discuss these payment options, schedule an appointment, or ask us any questions you may have about your next visit, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 757-473-8482

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Restorative Dentistry

A restorative dentist primarily treats issues affecting the health, function, and comfort of your smile, such as damaged or lost teeth

Restorative dentists also have the knowledge and tools to provide lifelike tooth replacement solutions that fit seamlessly.

Improving the Health and Aesthetics of Your Smile

Restore Function and Comfort

Unhealthy teeth, gums, or bone tissue can be extremely uncomfortable. If left untreated, these conditions can also make it difficult to chew and enunciate. A restorative dentist can treat your smile from top to bottom to help you alleviate discomfort and restore proper function

The Right Fit

Restorative dentists use sophisticated tools to accurately measure the dimensions of your smile and deliver restorations that fit precisely

Boost Your Self-Confidence

Many oral health issues can also affect the look of your smile. By treating your oral health concerns, a restorative dentist can also help your smile look its best.

Dental Crowns Correct Multiple Issues at Once

Dental crowns can be used to correct functional and cosmetic issues that are affecting your smile. 

Tools Used by Restorative Dentists

Many restorative dentists use state-of-the-art technology to diagnose your condition, plan the appropriate treatment, and deliver natural-looking results. Some tools include: 

  • Digital X-rays and Cone Beam Scanners: Restorative dentists often use digital X-rays to quickly and safely diagnose issues such as cavities or fractured teeth. Some offices are equipped with cone beam computed tomography scanners that visualize your biostructures in three dimensions and allow your dentist to more accurately perform your treatment. 
     
  • Detailed Impressions: If you need a restoration such as a dental crown, bridge, or denture, your dentist may collect traditional putty impressions or digital impressions to record the exact dimensions of your smile. 
     
  • High-Quality Materials: When fabricating restorations, dentists use tried and true materials such as gold and porcelain as well as incredibly durable and lifelike materials such as zirconia.

Insurance Coverage Often Applies to Restorative Treatment

Because restorative dentistry procedures are intended to improve the health of your smile, most treatments are considered medically necessary and are at least partially covered by insurance providers. Dental implants and some premium restorative materials will usually require paying out-of-pocket.

Talk to your dentist about maximizing your benefits or arranging financing.
