Dr. O'Neil begins with a smile makeover consultation to find out exactly what the patient wants, and expects the outcome to be. During this meeting Dr. O'Neil covers the complete procedure from beginning to end, explaining the process and relieving any underlying fears of dentistry.

After the consultation, Dr. O'Neil, then begins the process of finding out exactly what is needed to build your teeth into a bright smile. Usually it begins with finding which teeth need porcelain veneers, dental crowns and, if needed, gum re-contouring.

During the dental procedure Dr. O'Neil will slim down the damaged or crooked teeth to be covered by the porcelain veneers and / or dental crowns. After creating the veneers, a special bonding agent is used to apply the veneers or crowns to the teeth resulting in a permanent solution to damaged, chipped, stained, or crooked teeth.

Suffering from Headaches, Shoulder & Neck Pain? See Your Dentist.

Almost everyone knows that their dentist is necessary when their teeth need a cleaning or they need dental work done. Did you know that it may also be appropriate to visit the dentist when you have jaw, shoulder or neck pain?.



Quite often, these pains are caused by an improperly aligned jaw. For jaw alignment problems, you will need to visit a neuromuscular dentist to diagnose and fix the misalignment. Neuromuscular dentistry is a dental specialty that emphasizes correcting jaw and bite problems.



Neuromuscular dentists treat problems associated with Temporomandibular Joint Disorder. Also known as TMJ, and more recently known as TMD. TMJ / TMD occurs when the temporomandibular joint becomes misaligned. This joint can often become overstressed and misaligned due to age, tooth wear, or poor dental work.


TMJ / TMD can manifest itself in wide variety of symptoms, including headaches, neck pain, shoulder pain, an uneven bite, and problems chewing.


Virginia Beach Neuromuscular Dentist Dr. Michael Folck has been highly trained in the area of neuromuscular dentistry. His goal is to first relieve the symptoms causing your pain, and then to correct the underlying jaw and bite issues so that your symptoms don’t reappear.


Dr. Folck's dental practice incroporates the latest technology, offering you the best treatment possible. The Myomonitor for TENS technology will determine your ideal bite position. Low frequency muscle stimulation is also employed to relax and massage your jaw, eventually enabling your jaw to find its proper resting place.



Do you suffer from frequent headaches, neck, or shoulder pain? Perhaps its time you visited your dentist to see if TMJ / TMD is the cause. If you live in Chesapeake, Norfolk, Hampton, Portsmouth, or Virginia Beach, Virginia contact the office of neuromuscular dentist Michael Folck for an initial consultation.

Revitalize with Veneers!

Dr. Kevin Sands, Hollywood dentist to the stars, whose patients include Tori Spelling and Britney Spears, is known for giving his patients the smile they've always dreamed of. A quick way to achieve a bright, white, and perfectly aligned smile is with porcelain veneers.


Porcelain veneers are a tooth cover made of a restorative material (in this case, porcelain) that is placed over an existing tooth. They are bonded with a cement or bonding agent, and with improved technology in this field, they can last anywhere from 10 to 30 years.


Typically used for whitening, porcelain veneers can also correct discolored fillings, incorrect alignment/spacing, and misshapen or chipped teeth. With all of the things that can be corrected during one visit, it's no wonder that everyone is getting veneers!

This patient wanted veneers to brighten her teeth and make her smile more even and youthful.
