General dentistry supports healthy smiles that reflect your best, most vibrant self

Mirage Family Dentistry sees a healthy smile on the horizon for you and your cherished loved ones! Dr. Rajni Kapoor leads a team of talented, kind, and passionate professionals from our well-appointed and inviting office in Yorktown, Virginia. 

Dr. Kapoor emphasizes relationships. We see our patients as beloved extensions of our own families. We work closely with every one of them to provide tailored guidance on everything from nutrition to the best oral care products and cleaning techniques for their situation and needs. 

Comprehensive general dentistry that defies the conventional 

Our approach is proactive. The idea is to protect the teeth and gums. In doing so, we can prevent many of the leading causes of tooth pain and loss. A preventative dentistry approach is also more comfortable, pleasant, conservative, safe, and affordable than reactive dental care. 

This latter approach is focused on treating problems after they have arisen rather than preventing them from developing in the first place. Of course, even the most skilled professionals like Dr. Kapoor cannot possibly prevent every problem among all patients. Accidents happen. Life is eventful and unpredictable. 

However, every effort is made to catch problems early in the disease process. In doing so, we may be able to intervene and even reverse the effects of conditions like early gum disease. One aspect of proactive dental care is focused on preventing conditions from causing irreversible damage. This helps avoid the need for more aggressive, invasive, time-consuming, and expensive restorative procedures, such as tooth removal or replacement with bridges, dentures, or implants.

What to expect

Routine visits to our office for checkups are fundamental and at the heart of Mirage Family Dentistry and preventative dental care. These visits are scheduled at least once every six months, more frequently if you have risks for conditions like gum disease and oral cancer. You will also need to visit us more regularly for follow-up appointments to assess how well treatments for conditions like gum disease may be working. 

Generally, no 6-month checkup is complete without the following: 

  • A thorough examination by Dr. Kapoor 
  • Screening for oral cancers and pre-cancerous lesions
  • Discussion about any changes to your oral and overall health since the last visit
  • Periodic x-rays or on an as-needed basis (to see what cannot be visualized by the human eye alone)
  • A professional cleaning of the teeth and gum line by one of our gentle and exceptional dental hygienists 
  • The finishing touch – a polishing for minty fresh breath and the most dazzling smile 
  • Discussion and demonstration of good hygiene techniques and healthy nutrition and habits — again, on an as-needed basis and as tailored to you 
  • Application of professional preventative dental services; for instance, dental sealants, mouthguards, nightguards, and fluoride supplements

 By getting into a regular habit of seeing your friendly dental “family” in Yorktown, VA, you can entirely avoid the need for treatment. Call (757) 856-5545 to schedule your appointment with Dr. Kapoor at Mirage Family Dentistry today.
