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!

Instant Smile Makeover Options By drparr on March 02, 2020

Close-up shot of female mouth shows bright, attractive teethWhen multiple cosmetic procedures are needed, combining the treatments into a smile makeover treatment plan can deliver dramatic results while saving patients the hassle of having to make multiple trips to our Virginia Beach, VA, dental practice.

For over two decades, patients have trusted the doctors and dental team of The Smile Center to deliver quality and compassionate dental care. We offer a wide range of cosmetic procedures that can be customized to meet your cosmetic needs and personal goals.

Smile Makeover Treatment Options?

Some patients are fortunate enough to only need one cosmetic procedure. But for other patients, the realities of aging and the cumulative effects of minor chips and wear require a combination of cosmetic treatments to fully improve the appearance of the smile.

It is not uncommon for individuals to postpone cosmetic work for a variety of reasons. When they do come to our Virginia Beach, VA, dental practice for a cosmetic consultation, a smile makeover may be their best treatment option.

Our office offers a wide range of treatment options that can be combined when customizing your smile makeover plan.

  • Dental bonding (for minor cosmetic issues)
  • Invisalign® (to straighten teeth)
  • Clear braces (to straighten teeth)
  • Damon™ braces (to straighten teeth)
  • Crown lengthening (to correct the appearance of small teeth)
  • Gum contouring (to address a “gummy” smile)
  • Gum grafting (to address gum tissue recession)
  • Porcelain veneers (to mask flaws or reshape a tooth)
  • Snap-On Smile® (to address a wide range of treatment options)

When we think of cosmetic treatments, most people think of a single treatment. A smile makeover is a comprehensive plan that addresses all cosmetic concerns at once. Rather than taking a piecemeal approach to treating aesthetic blemishes (which can require several months or even years of visits to our office) Drs. Scott Parr and Tara Frey can take a look at your situation holistically.

Benefits of a Smile Makeover

In some cases, a smile makeover can be completed during one visit. By combining your treatments into one visit to our office, our doctor can work efficiently. This can result in less overall time spent sitting through procedures.

If you are seeking more extensive treatment, like veneers, more than one visit may be required.

Candidacy Considerations

Candidates for a smile makeover may be unhappy with multiple cosmetic issues. A smile makeover can address a wide range of cosmetic problems that can include:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Chips and cracks
  • Enamel discoloration
  • Worn or small teeth
  • Gummy smiles

A good candidate for a smile makeover is also someone who wants to enjoy dramatic cosmetic results in a relatively short time span. One of our doctors will establish your candidacy for a smile makeover during your cosmetic consultation at our Virginia Beach dental practice.

Smile Makeover with Sedation

Depending on the number or extent of treatment, a smile makeover may still require more than one hour to complete. For patients who have difficulty sitting still or suffer from dental phobia issues, we offer sedation dentistry. Under the soothing effects of sedation, patients feel like time flies by.

Schedule Your Smile Makeover Today

If you have put off cosmetic treatments, the cumulative effects of worn or discolored teeth can leave you looking advanced in age.

One of our doctors can customize a treatment plan that addresses your aesthetic issues through one convenient visit to our office. To schedule your smile makeover, please contact our office online or call (757) 231-7965.
