Drs. Clay and Jeffrey Weisberg are experts in family and cosmetic dentistry. Their expertise consists of comprehensive general cosmetic dentistry services and the highest quality patient care. They are proficient in cutting-edge cosmetic, restorative, and preventive procedures, including:
When a tooth is lost, a dental bridge can replace that tooth, restoring function and a natural appearance. Bridges can be anchored either by two adjacent dental crowns, or a dental implant.
CEREC® is a CAD/CAM tool for dentistry which allows the operator to fabricate fillings, crowns and veneers in less than an hour. The final restoration can be during the same visit in which the tooth is prepared, eliminating the need to return for a second appointment. These natural-looking restorations are conservative, strong, biocompatible, and plaque resistant.
Our Chesapeake team is experienced in placing fillings that match the natural color and contour of teeth, making them discreet and effective.
Cracked Tooth Syndrome
A cracked tooth can cause extreme discomfort. In some cases, if treatment is delayed for too long, the tooth may become non-restorable. At Eastern Virginia Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we’ve developed a stepwise method for treating cracked teeth. By examining your particular situation, the team can create an ideal treatment plan.
Dental crowns can restore decayed, worn, misshaped, or misaligned teeth to a healthy form and function. A crown is a natural-looking, tooth-shaped cap that covers and strengthens broken teeth and can be used to esthetically enhance a smile.
Patients missing one or multiple teeth can be treated using a removable prosthesis. Our doctors take special care to craft dentures with outstanding function, comfort and aesthetics.
Maintenance of the bone and gums that support our teeth is critical to keeping a healthy smile for life. Our team at Eastern Virginia Family & Cosmetic Dentistry can diagnose and treat periodontal disease. Recent research linking periodontal disease and systemic health has made this treatment more important than ever.
Dental implants are titanium posts surgically implanted in the jaw to support restorations following tooth loss. Implants typically require at least two surgeries and several months of healing time, but can provide you with a lifetime of incredible support for your restorations.
Implant-supported dentures are a popular alternative to traditional removable dentures. These full arch restorations are anchored to the jawbone to provide unsurpassed denture stability, support, and comfort for patients who are good candidates. Experience the renewed confidence of chewing, smiling, and speaking with natural-looking dentures that are designed to stay firmly in place.
All-on-4® is a popular method for supporting and stabilizing custom denture restorations with strategically placed dental implants. Four dental implants, two in the front and two in the back, are typically all that is required to secure one full arch of replacement teeth. This technique can be an especially effective alternative for patients with jawbone loss that disqualifies them from extensive single-implant restorations.
Dentists often need advanced magnification to detect complications and provide thorough treatment. Loupes are the instrument most often used to provide increased visual acuity. In some cases, greater magnification is needed than dental loupes can provide. Dr. Clay & Dr. Jeff have invested in a dental operating microscope that provides an incredibly close look at the recesses of the teeth and gums.
In some cases, the most effective method of addressing a troubled tooth is removal. In addition to dealing with the problem tooth, our caring team at Eastern Virginia Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is ready to discuss with you the best method of replacing the missing tooth in order to restore a beautiful, healthy smile.
Teeth that are malformed, discolored, eroded, have faulty restoration or are misaligned can be conservatively prepared and covered with a restoration to restore health, function and appearance. The procedure typically takes 2 appointments to complete once the method of treatment is determined. Contact our Chesapeake office to learn more about our general and cosmetic dentistry services.

When infection has compromised the health of a tooth, the pulp within can be removed to salvage the healthy outer structure. Following removal of the infection, the tooth is filled and a crown is placed to help maintain maximum strength.
Teeth whitening can provide you with a brighter, more beautiful smile. Maximal results are typically seen within two weeks. After the desired shade is achieved, occasional touch-ups can be scheduled to maintain the desired effect.
With Invisalign® orthodontic treatment, patients can straighten their teeth without the bold appearance of wires and brackets employed by traditional braces. Using a series of clear aligners, Invisalign® gradually corrects misaligned teeth to produce a beautiful, straight smile.
When the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) malfunctions, simple tasks such as eating or speaking can become painful. This condition, known as TMD, can lead to symptoms that affect not just the jaw, but the head, teeth, and certain areas of the body as well. With conservative, non-surgical treatment options, our dentists can address the root cause of your condition and design a plan to provide relief.
When patients wish to correct a number of smile imperfections at once, a smile makeover can completely rejuvenate the appearance of the teeth and gums. A smile makeover can simultaneously address a wide range of concerns, including cracked, chipped, gapped, stained, discolored, misaligned, and missing teeth. Each smile makeover treatment plan is highly customized to achieve your personal goals.
