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!

Smile Makeover

Cosmetic imperfections can make you feel self-conscious about your smile, but for some patients, one treatment is not enough.

At The Smile Center, we offer comprehensive smile makeover treatment plans tailored to address each of your unique cosmetic concerns.

So what makes a smile makeover at our Virginia Beach, VA, office so unique?

Carefully Personalized to Provide Tailored Results

Raise Your Confidence

Changing even seemingly minor flaws can create a beautiful new smile that makes you feel more confident in your day-to-day life.

Achieve Optimal Effects

With a smile makeover, Dr. Scott Parr or Dr. Tara Frey can personalize a treatment plan based on your unique concerns and facial features.

You Control the Results

Whether you want to see results quickly or need to stage your treatment for financial reasons, our team can plan your makeover to suit your schedule and budget.

Undergoing a Smile Makeover Can Impact Your Social Life

We Use Advanced Technology for Unparalleled Results

What do our patients say about our tools, like digital smile imaging, and state-of-the-art techniques? "They really are the experts at smiles."

You Play a Major Role in Achieving Your Smile Goals

With a smile makeover, you set the pace for every aspect of your treatment. In some cases, our patients decide to start slowly and address minor issues in their smile. Others want to completely transform their smile in a short period of time.

Each smile is different and requires a unique approach. We can discuss your preferences, goals, and budget with you to customize a treatment plan that suits your needs.

Our Advanced Technology Allows for More Convenient Care

At The Smile Center, we can use state-of-the-art CEREC technology to design a variety of restorations. Your doctor can utilize CEREC to take accurate 3-D images of your smile. Then, the milling machine can craft your restoration right in our office, making your treatment more comfortable and convenient

Your Treatment Experience  Will Depend on Your Goals

Every smile makeover treatment plan is different and depends on a variety of factors. At The Smile Center in Virginia Beach, there are typically three phases to smile design.

What to Expect

Planning

First, you will sit down with Dr. Parr or Dr. Frey to discuss your goals and concerns. Then they will examine your smile and design a treatment plan.

Preparation

If you decide to proceed with a smile makeover, your doctor will prepare your teeth for any restorations and perform any preliminary treatments, such as teeth whitening. If you qualify for a same-day restoration with CEREC, you may not need a third appointment.

Placement

A few weeks later, uring your third appointment, your doctor will place any restorations, such as crowns, veneers, or fillings

Longer Treatments

Some options, such as Invisalign® or other orthodontic treatments, can extend the length of your treatment by up to a year or more.

Most Smile Makeovers Do Not Require Recovery Time

For the most part, cosmetic procedures have little to no recovery time, so you should be able to return to your normal activities immediately after treatment. 

There are certain steps you can take to ensure your results stay as brilliant as the day you complete treatmentOur doctors recommend:

  • Brushing twice a day and flossing daily
  • Attending regular exams and cleanings
  • Minimizing dark-colored drinks, such as wine and coffee

Results Will Vary Based on the Treatments You Choose

The effects of your smile makeover will depend entirely on the issues you wish to treat and the procedures you select.

In general, most patients experience a boost in their self-confidence after a smile makeover. When you feel confident about the way you look, you are more likely to smile, which can improve your overall quality of life.

You can learn more about your possible results during a consultation at our Virginia Beach office. Dr. Parr or Dr. Frey can give you a better sense of what to expect based on your cosmetic concerns, budget, and goals.

Would Give Them Six Stars

"I am so glad that I found Dr. Parr and his staff. they are all excellent in care and they work with you with whatever situation you have I highly highly recommend them if this had a six I would give them six stars."
Denise M.

We Can Tailor Treatment to Suit Almost Any Budget

One of the benefits of smile makeovers is that they are completely customizable, meaning we can design a treatment plan that suits your specific budget.

If you are not worried about the cost and want dramatic results, we may recommend a more aggressive treatment plan.

However, if you want to save on costs, we can recommend alternatives with smaller price tags or stage treatment to fit your budget.

The Number and Type  of Treatments Affect Your Final Cost

Extent of Treatment

Your makeover will be customized to your goals, so the most important consideration in your treatment cost is how dramatic a change you wish to see in your smile. In general, more extensive results require a larger investment.

The Procedures You Choose

Some cosmetic treatments cost more than others. Teeth whitening, for example, is one of the most affordable procedures. In contrast, porcelain veneers are more expensive but provide more dramatic effects.

Sedation Options

In most cases, our doctors can perform cosmetic procedures using only local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. However, we also offer dental sedation if you are nervous or require a particularly involved treatment. Sedation will typically raise the price of your care.

Insurance and Financing  May Help with the Cost of Treatment

Dental Insurance

Although most cosmetic treatments are not covered by insurance, our insurance coordinator can help you determine your coverage for qualifying procedures.

Financing

We work with a variety of third-party lenders offering flexible, low-interest repayment options for patients with out-of-pocket costs.

Smile Makeovers Provide Truly Comprehensive Cosmetic Results

If you have multiple cosmetic concerns affecting your smile, creating a personalized makeover is an excellent choice for treatment. 

However, if you only want to make a small change or need to address extensive oral health issues, there are other options available to you. 

Happy dental patient

We Offer a Wide Range of Cosmetic and Restorative Treatments

Full Mouth Reconstruction

If you have multiple oral health issues as well as cosmetic concerns, you may achieve better results with a full mouth reconstruction. Dr. Parr or Dr. Frey can examine your smile and help choose the right options for you.

Individual Cosmetic Treatments

If you only wish to make a small alteration to your smile, we can help you choose a single cosmetic procedure to target your concerns.

Frequently Asked Questions about Smile Makeovers

How many treatments can I include in my smile makeover?

We do not place a limit on the number of treatments we can include in a smile makeover. Dr. Parr or Dr. Frey may recommend only two or three procedures or suggest a larger treatment plan.

How long will it take to get results?

Your treatment timeline will depend on the amount and type of procedures you desire. In some cases, we can complete a smile makeover in a single visit. However, if you need a restoration or an orthodontic treatment, your treatment duration will be longer.

Will my smile makeover hurt?

In general, cosmetic treatments produce little to no discomfort. Our team can provide local anesthetic or dental sedation to ensure you are calm and comfortable during your procedures.

Is there an age limit on a smile makeover?

For the most part, no. As long as you are in good oral health and can undergo the chosen procedures safely, you should be able to undergo a smile makeover.
