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 Cost

Every smile makeover is different, meaning the cost of treatment can vary significantly from patient to patient. A smile makeover is unique in that it combines multiple services to completely transform your smile. Smile makeover cost is affected by the number of procedures performed, the dentist’s level of experience, and a range of other factors. During your initial consultation, your dentist can explain your options and provide you with an estimate of the expected cost of treatment.

Extent of Treatment

Smile makeovers combine multiple procedures into one comprehensive treatment plan. These can range from teeth whitening to dental bonding and porcelain crowns. The number and type of treatments you choose for your smile makeover will affect the final cost. Typically, smile makeovers focus on cosmetic enhancements. If you have underlying oral health concerns such as gum disease, your dentist will likely recommend that you seek periodontal treatment prior to your makeover. Additional general or restorative procedures will raise the cost of treatment.

Smile makeovers consist primarily of treatments that are not covered by insurance. While a crown placed for practical purposes would usually qualify, a crown used to achieve an aesthetic upgrade probably would not.

Level of Experience

In general, dentists with greater training will charge more for treatment than a less experienced practitioner. However, choosing a reputable dentist is an important step when considering any alterations to your smile. While you may save money up front by working with a dentist new to the industry, there is a higher likelihood of complications, and you may need costly retreatment in the future.

The number and type of treatments you choose for your smile makeover will affect the final cost. 

Advanced Technology

Advancements in dental technology have created a range of innovative tools and techniques for enhancing the aesthetics of your smile. Many dentists now incorporate these tools as they plan and execute your smile makeover. For example, your dentist may use advanced imaging technology, such as digital impressions or virtual smile design software, to view your jaw and teeth and begin planning your treatment. Keep in mind that advanced treatment methods may cost more than traditional techniques.

Geographic Location

In general, the costs associated with dental treatment vary depending on where you live. Higher overhead costs in major urban areas tend to raise the cost of elective dental procedures.

Sedation

For most patients, cosmetic alterations are performed under local anesthesia with minimal discomfort. However, if you are anxious about your treatment, many dentists offer sedation options to help you relax. Your options may include nitrous oxide, oral sedation, or intravenous (IV) sedation. The cost of sedation is not typically included in the initial estimate and will likely raise the price of your treatment overall.

Insurance and Financing

Most dental insurance plans do not cover cosmetic procedures as they are not medically necessary. However, if part of your makeover has a restorative purpose, you may receive partial coverage. Dental crowns, for example, can enhance the appearance of a tooth, but they also strengthen the integrity of your bite and restore dental function. Your dentist can provide more information about insurance as well as in-house or third party financing options to help you cover the out-of-pocket expenses.

Enhancing Your Smile

For many patients, enhancing the aesthetics of their smile improves their self-confidence and their quality of life. You can discuss the different cost factors with your dentist and determine if a comprehensive smile makeover treatment plan is the right option for you.
