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!

Teeth Whitening

Staining and discoloration can dim the beauty of your smile and make you feel self-conscious about your appearance.

At The Smile Center, we offer professional teeth whitening using the Zoom! system, which can provide dramatic results in a single session.

So why should you opt for professional whitening?

Professional Teeth Whitening Can Remove Even the Toughest Stains

Enjoy Dramatic Results

Teeth whitening treatment at The Smile Center can provide dazzling white teeth that make you appear younger and healthier.

See Effects Quickly

Many of our patients see stunning results after only one in-office whitening treatment. In contrast, over-the-counter products typically require at least two weeks to show results.

Feel More Confident

Brighter, more brilliant teeth can make you feel more confident about showing off your smile and boost your mood.

A Whiter Smile Can Make a Massive Impact

About Teeth Whitening

Shiny, bright teeth naturally enhance your smile and can light up your whole face. Teeth whitening can work wonders to increase your confidence, especially for a special event or camera-ready moment.

Lifestyle choices contribute to yellowing teeth enamel, which can dull the beauty of your smile and even make you look older than your years. Smoking and certain beverages, such as coffee, tea, wine, and soda, are known offenders, leaving surface stains on teeth that accumulate over time.

Whitening toothpastes and other over-the-counter treatments can improve the appearance of the teeth, but professional-strength products yield the most noticeable results. Zoom!’s strong hydrogen peroxide formula breaks apart stains that cause dark tones and yellowing. Teeth look whiter and have more sparkle, reflecting the light to create luster and shine.

Whitening at The Smile Center

Your initial appointment at our Center will include a dental exam by Dr. Scott Parr or Dr. Tara Frey. It is important to begin any cosmetic dentistry treatment with clean teeth that are free of decay and periodontal disease.

In some cases, tooth discoloration is deeply intrinsic, stemming from trauma, large silver fillings or ingested medications. If teeth bleaching will not yield the results you seek, our dentists can recommend other options, including porcelain veneers or dental crowns. If you are a candidate for Zoom! whitening, you will have a choice of in-office treatment, a custom take-home kit or both.

In the office, our Zoom WhiteSpeed system provides dramatic results in less than an hour. The treatment includes use of a special LED light to activate the chemical action of the whitening gel. We use custom fabricated trays made from impressions of your teeth, ensuring the whitening results reach every angle of your visible enamel.

The procedure takes place in three, consecutive 15-minute sessions in the dentist’s chair. Intensity settings are adjustable for sensitive patients, but most patients experience little to no sensitivity after this treatment. You can take home your custom trays with a bonus DayWhite or NiteWhite gel to enhance and maintain your results. We also offer a topical treatment to relieve any sensitivity you might experience.

For patients who prefer a take-home kit only, Zoom! DayWhite and NightWhite are available. Both systems include custom application trays for optimal results. The formula options range from a mild strength to full 22% whitening power. The stronger formulas can yield a dramatic effect in a few nights, while a gentler gel provides more gradual results over a two-week period. Patients with sensitivity concerns can also use Zoom!’s Relief ACP sensitivity treatment.
