Missing teeth, crooked teeth, and teeth that are worn or broken create more than cosmetic concerns. These types of dental problems can lead to serious health concerns. Most cosmetic or functional dental concerns are the result of underlying problems such as bite alignment, TMJ related issues, or periodontal disease.
Dr. Cappy Sinclair of Coastal Cosmetic Dentistry in Virginia Beach, specializes in solving complex dental problems and restoring patients smiles through advanced treatment options. Through a comprehensive evaluation, Dr. Sinclair is able to diagnose the underlying cause for cosmetic and functional dental concerns. Fixing the root of the problem, rather than just the symptoms, allows for the longest lasting, most comfortable results.

Restorative dentistry focuses on restoring health, beauty and function to patient’s smiles. This facet of dentistry may range from fixing a broken tooth to replacing several missing teeth with dental implants. Dr. Sinclair strives to offer the most conservative treatment options with your long term health and comfort in mind.
You can expect one-on-one attention from your dentist to discuss your goals and concerns. Dr. Sinclair will take the time to educate you and explain the treatment options that are best suited for solving your specific condition.
Dr. Sinclair offers comprehensive care for a wide range of cosmetic and restorative dental concerns including:
Broken or missing teeth can cause major concern not just for the cosmetic reasons, but also because they pose serious health risks. Once a tooth is lost, the bone and gum are susceptible to decay, trauma and deterioration. Dr. Sinclair offers a range of treatment options for replacing broken or missing teeth including: dental implants, dental bridges, or dentures.
Many people grind or clench their teeth at night without even realizing it. Teeth grinding can lead to serious jaw disorders, headaches, damaged teeth and other problems. Dr. Sinclair has completed post graduate training to diagnose and treat TMJ disorder, as well as treat damage caused by teeth grinding.
Bleeding gums are a common sign of periodontal disease, better known as gum disease. Gum pain, sore gums, and gums that bleed may all be present in patients who have gingivitis, an early stage of gum disease. Routine visits to the dentist and professional teeth cleanings are extremely important for preventing gum disease. Dr. Sinclair offers a number of treatment options for patients who already have advanced signs of gum disease.
Because the smile is so important to your overall appearance, a dentist’s ability and skill should be carefully considered. Dr. Sinclair has completed advanced post graduate training in restorative dental procedures and cosmetic dentistry techniques. He is also trained to diagnose and treat TMJ disorders, which are often the cause for cosmetic dental concerns.
Cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedures should compliment your face and look as though they have always been there. Likewise, the restorations should be comfortable and designed to be long lasting.
How long will it take?
The timeline for a full mouth reconstruction varies from patient to patient, depending on their needs and goals. For someone with minor changes and functional concerns, the smile makeover process can be as quick as a few weeks. Some treatments such as composite bonding or resin dental veneers can be completed in a single visit. If you have more complex dental problems such as worn, broken or missing teeth, the process may be more intensive, requiring multiple treatments over the course of several weeks or months.
What does a Full Mouth Reconstruction cost?
Just as the timeline depends on the specific patient, so does the cost of a full mouth reconstruction. No one should avoid treatment because they think it is too expensive. Dr. Sinclair spends one-on-one time with each patient to explain the various treatment options and associated costs to help patients make the best decision for their long term health and happiness. In addition, we offer flexible payment options including interest free financing to help make treatment more affordable.
One of the reasons that people avoid the dentist is because they don’t want to make repeat visits for treatment. Dr. Sinclair is among the first dentists in Virginia Beach to offer same day restorative dentistry treatment using advanced E4D technology. In just a single visit, Dr. Sinclair can design, fabricate and place tooth-colored dental crowns, veneers and dental fillings.
The E4D system uses 3-D imaging and CAD/CAM software to precisely plan and fabricate natural looking dental restorations in just one office visit. A digital impression of your teeth is taken using a high speed laser scanner and instantly sent to a computer to create a 3-D model. Dr. Sinclair uses this model to design restorations that will fit perfectly and be virtually indistinguishable from neighboring teeth.
The in office milling machine allows Dr. Sinclair to fabricate restorations that were traditionally made in a dental laboratory. In just minutes, the dentist has a high end tooth colored restoration to try on for fit and color. After making any minor adjustments, Dr. Sinclair will secure the restoration and you will be on your way.
