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!

Porcelain Veneers

Chips, stains, and other cosmetic flaws can be embarrassing and make you feel self-conscious about smiling in public.

At The Smile Center, we offer porcelain veneers to conceal imperfections in your smile for a more symmetrical and beautiful appearance.

So why should you consider dental veneers at our Virginia Beach, VA, office?

Porcelain Veneers Can Dramatically Enhance Your Smile

Lifelike Materials

At The Smile Center, we use advanced dental porcelain which mimics the qualities of natural teeth to provide stunningly beautiful results without looking unnatural.

Versatile Smile Enhancement

Dr. Scott Parr and Dr. Tara Frey can use porcelain veneers to address a wide range of cosmetic issues, including gaps, chips, and stubborn staining.

Lasting Results

Despite being incredibly thin, our dental veneers offer remarkable strength. When properly cared for, veneers can last up to 25 years without serious damage.

If You Feel Self-Conscious, You Are Not Alone

We Can Use Veneers to Enhance Teeth That Are:

Veneers Can Conceal Several Imperfections in Your Smile

A dental veneer is a thin shell of medical-grade ceramic which fits over the top of a tooth to conceal cosmetic flaws. In this way, a porcelain veneer can offer the same benefits of teeth whitening, a dental crown, and orthodontics all in a single treatment.

Each porcelain veneer we offer at The Smile Center in Virginia Beach is customized to suit the unique needs of the patient. We can personalize your veneer treatment plan to address the conditions you wish to hide.

We Are Dedicated to Personalizing Our Treatments

One of the aspects of The Smile Center that makes it stand out among Virginia Beach competitors is our ability to provide highly individualized care. The necessary time and attention will be given during your consultation to ensure that your personal requests are taken into account and that your treatment plan reflects the results you would like to see. We will even provide you with a series of free before and after photos.

We Use Digital Technology to Precisely Plan Your Treatment

At The Smile Center, we employ digital photographs and simulations to create a detailed plan for your porcelain veneers.

Using this information, we can accurately communicate the goals you wish to achieve to our dental lab. This attention to detail ensures beautiful results that fit naturally into your smile.

It Typically Takes  Two Visits to Receive Veneers

Our Virginia Beach practice is dedicated to placing your porcelain veneers with meticulous attention to detail and a gentle touch. You can rest assured that we will provide you with a relaxing, comfortable experience.

Preparation

A local anesthetic will be applied to ensure your comfort. Then, a very small amount of enamel will be removed from each treated tooth to make room for the veneer. 

Impressions

We will create molds of your prepared teeth and, guided by digital photographs, simulations, and explicit instructions, our trusted dental laboratory will fabricate your veneers. It may take a few weeks for the lab to complete a set of porcelain veneers.

Temporary Veneers

We will fit you with temporary restorations to maintain the aesthetics of your smile. These temporaries can also give us a chance to make any necessary adjustments before attaching the permanent veneers.

Try In

After closely examining the fit and color of your new teeth, and trimming them to optimize your bite, your dentist will clean, polish, and lightly buff their surfaces to create the most favorable bonding surface.

Bonding

Finally, the specialized dental cement will be applied and the veneers will be placed onto the front of the teeth.

Follow-Ups

You may be asked to attend a follow-up appointment so your dentist can check your bite, examine the gum tissue around the veneers, and answer any questions you have.

Caring for Your Smile
Can Prolong Your Results

Brushing at least twice a day and flossing daily are essential to maintaining your porcelain veneers. Routine checkups at The Smile Center in Virginia Beach will also keep your overall oral health in check.

Although veneers are stain-resistant, it is advised to avoid potential stain-causing substances such as tea, coffee, red wine, and tobacco. Additionally, avoiding biting hard objects like ice, pen caps, and your fingernails will ultimately increase the lifespan of your smile. Complete care instructions will be discussed in detail during your consultation.

Modern Porcelain Veneers Look Just Like Natural Teeth

In the past, veneers often ended up looking bulky, unnatural, or too perfect. At The Smile Center, we use state-of-the-art materials to create veneers that are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.

While your results will vary based on your goals, most of our patients end up with smiles that look brighter, more symmetrical, and more youthful than before.

The Smile Center is a fantastic practice!

"I had trauma to my upper front teeth that required veneers and implant surgery. After having the procedure done, I am more apt to smile, especially in pictures! I have always been self-conscious about my smile, but my procedure allowed me to overcome that fear. I would definitely recommend The Smile Center to anyone who has had a traumatic experience, or to someone who just wants to make a change." Bryan M.

The Cost of Veneers Can Vary Based on Your Goals

At The Smile Center, we typically charge per veneer. However, since we customize treatment for each patient, the overall cost of enhancing your smile with porcelain veneers will depend on multiple factors that we will discuss during a consultation. We are experienced in making life-changing treatments affordable and will work within your budget to find a solution.

We Can Help You Understand Your Financing Options

Third-Party Financing

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

Credit Cards

If you prefer, you can also use a credit card that offers generous points to cover the cost of your porcelain veneers treatment. 

No sales pitch and upfront about the price!

"No one at The Smile Center tried to give me a sales pitch. Everything was right up front with the price, and with the research I had done, their prices were aligned with what I had found. No added costs or changes were added to my treatment!

With my new smile and veneers, my husband says he can't believe the confidence boost it has given me. The Smile Center definitely put a smile on my face, one that I'm proud to show off!"
Lark K.

There Are a Variety of Ways to Enhance Your Smile

At The Smile Center, we offer a range of cosmetic treatments which are designed to improve the aesthetics of your smile. We will listen closely to you unique concerns and goals during a consultation in order to recommend the best treatment plan.

We Can Help You Find the Right Option for Your Smile

Dental Bonding

With dental bonding, Dr. Parr or Dr. Frey can use a tooth-colored composite resin to adjust the size, shape, or color of your teeth. This treatment may be a good choice for patients who do not want to permanently alter their teeth or do not have enough enamel for veneers. However, the results of bonding do not last as long.

Teeth Whitening

If you only want to change the color of your teeth, we offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening to remove stains and brighten your smile. Whitening does not offer the same lasting effects as veneers and will likely require regular maintenance.

Orthodontics

At The Smile Center, we offer Invisalign as well as traditional orthodontics to address crooked and misaligned teeth. Orthodontic treatment takes longer than receiving porcelain veneers, but can adjust your bite as well as the cosmetic alignment of your smile.
