Dear patients.

We are happy to say that we are planning to reopen our office for patient treatment on Monday, May 4th. Initially we will be open from 8am til 2pm though we will expand those hours as needed.

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 are ONLY opening because we have carefully planned and revised our 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 will be 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 Systems

If you are interested in brightening your smile, teeth whitening products such as Britesmile® and the Zoom!® and Rembrandt® tooth whitening systems are high quality options that produce dramatic results. These treatments can be administered by your cosmetic dentist in-office in approximately one hour.

Zoom!® Teeth Whitening

The Zoom!® teeth whitening system is known for its speed. Zoom!® is considered to be one of the fastest teeth whitening systems available and it was designed to fit into patients' busy schedules. Zoom!® is both an in-office and at-home teeth whitening option. If your cosmetic dentist administers Zoom!® tooth whitening in his or her office, your teeth can look eight shades brighter in one hour. If you select the at-home option, your teeth can look three shades brighter in only three days. During a Zoom!® teeth whitening session, the dentist applies a tooth whitening gel containing hydrogen peroxide to each tooth. Laser light is then shone on the teeth; this causes the hydrogen peroxide to break down, letting oxygen into the teeth and whitening them. The cost for Zoom!® teeth whitening depends upon the dentist and area of the country, but generally ranges from $500 to $1500 for an in-office teeth whitening treatment.

A dental professional explains the Zoom! process.

BriteSmile® Teeth Whitening

BriteSmile® is a teeth whitening system that uses whitening gel in conjunction with gas plasma light in order to whiten a patient's teeth. BriteSmile® produces dramatic results in very little time; it can brighten teeth up to nine shades in one in-office visit; or, if the at-home option is selected, BriteSmile® can be used with custom fitted trays for two hours of whitening per day or overnight. The trays will lighten teeth up to six shades over a time span of several weeks. Like the Zoom!® tooth whitening system, the BriteSmile® in-office process takes effect when laser light reacts with the whitening gel. This light operates in the low level, blue-green spectrum and is absolutely safe for patients.

Rembrandt® Teeth Whitening

The Rembrandt® teeth whitening system combines the power of a "Sapphire" Plasma Arc Light with patented teeth whitening gel in order to brighten teeth by 8 to 10 shades. As with the Zoom!® and BriteSmile® teeth whitening systems, Rembrandt® teeth whitening takes approximately one hour to complete in-office. Rembrandt® also has an at-home option with custom fitted trays. The trays will whiten teeth in as little as a few days to a couple months, depending on the amount of whitening necessary. Whether you choose the Rembrandt® teeth whitening system in-office or at-home, you can be assured of dramatic results.

Many whitening treatments use special lights to intensify the effects of the bleaching formula.

Other Teeth Whitening Systems

Other over-the-counter teeth whitening products are available to the general public and include toothpastes, "paint-on" products, and strips. Some of these teeth whitening products work better than others. Teeth whitening kits (with paint-on applications and/or trays) tend to work best, followed by strips, and then toothpaste. Though some over-the-counter teeth whitening systems will produce good results, the outcome will generally not be comparable to professional teeth whitening supervised by a cosmetic dentist, whether the treatment is in office or at-home with custom fitted trays.
