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!

Factors that Affect Porcelain Veneers Cost By drparr on July 06, 2019

Pie chart of porcelain veneers cost factorsPorcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic dentistry treatment, in large part due to their versatility. Porcelain veneers can address a wide range of aesthetic imperfections, including discoloration, dental stains, superficial structural damage, and minor misalignment problems.

Often, one of the first questions that patients ask about porcelain veneers is how much treatment will cost. Porcelain veneers treatment at the Smile Center is personalized to meet the unique needs of each patient, so no two procedures are exactly alike. Additionally, there are many factors that affect porcelain veneers cost for our Virginia Beach, VA patients, so the cost of treatment can differ from one patient to another. A personal consultation is the best way to get an accurate cost estimate of porcelain veneers treatment.

Materials and Manufacturing Method

Two of the factors that have the greatest impact on the cost of porcelain veneers treatment is what type of materials are used to fabricate the veneers and how the veneers are manufactured.

Higher quality materials obviously cost more upfront, but that extra cost usually amounts to stronger, longer-lasting veneers that closely resemble the natural teeth. Similarly, advanced manufacturing techniques cost a little more, but produce more durable porcelain veneers that can withstand the force of regular biting and chewing. Our dentists work with a trusted dental laboratory to offer high-quality porcelain veneers that can last for many years.

Number of Veneers

The cost of porcelain veneers treatment will be greatly influenced by how many porcelain veneers are placed. Every porcelain veneer that is placed increases the cost of treatment, because each one requires materials and manufacturing, and each tooth involves preparation. Porcelain veneers blend in with the natural teeth, so our Virginia Beach patients can get attractive, natural-looking results whether they treat just a few teeth with veneers, or all of the front facing teeth.

Choice of Dentist

Porcelain veneer costs are likely to differ slightly from one dentist to another. The dental fee is often influenced by experience and training, so while it may be tempting to go with a dentist who is offering a low cost, patients should be wary. If one dentist offers costs that are significantly lower than another, it may be because they do not have as much experience performing porcelain veneers treatment.

Location of the Dental Practice

The cost of living varies from one location to another, and that has an impact on the cost of a full range of goods and services that are offered in the area. While porcelain veneer prices should be similar between dental practices in the Virginia Beach area, they could differ pretty significantly from those in other parts of the country, or even other parts of the state.
