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!

The Cost of Lumineers

Lumineers® are an excellent option for patients who want to address chips, cracks, or other cosmetic flaws in their smile. These ultra thin, minimal prep porcelain veneers can dramatically enhance your smile without altering the structure of your teeth. On average, Lumineers cost between $800 and $2,000 per tooth. The price of your treatment will depend on a variety of factors, including the complexity and extent of your procedure, your dentist’s experience, and your geographical location.

The cost of treatment with Lumineers can vary dramatically based on the specifics of your case. 

Extent of Treatment

One major factor that affects how much your Lumineers will cost is how many teeth you want to treat. Placing a veneer on a single tooth is a much less expensive procedure than restoring all of your front teeth. The number of veneers you need will depend on your goals and your budget. Your dentist can make recommendations based on your desired results.

Treatment Complexity

Lumineers are a versatile treatment that can address a range of cosmetic issues, from minor chips to gaps and crooked teeth. When veneers are used to address more straightforward concerns such as discoloration, they will likely cost less than if they are used to conceal more complex issues. In addition, if you have underlying health issues like periodontal disease, you will need to undergo preliminary treatment. Additional procedures can increase your final treatment cost.

On average, Lumineers cost between $800 and $2,000 per tooth.

Lab Fees

In general, lab fees for Lumineers are slightly more expensive than traditional veneers. This price difference is due to the complex fabrication methods required to create ultra thin porcelain shells that can withstand daily wear and tear. However, the design of Lumineers allows your dentist to place them without making significant alterations to your teeth, saving you on tooth reshaping costs and anesthesia fees. 

Dentist Experience

As with all dentistry procedures, the skill and reputation of your dentist can affect your treatment price. Typically, more experienced practitioners will charge more for their procedures. However, choosing a dentist who has experience placing Lumineers can save you money in the future. Correct placement can help you avoid issues with your bite as well as future repair and replacement costs. You should always choose a reputable dentist for your cosmetic dentistry treatments. 

Practice Location

Your geographical location can also affect the overall cost of your treatment. In general, dental procedures cost more in major cities, especially urban areas on either coast. Higher overhead in these areas means dentists must charge more to maintain their practices. 

Why Invest in Lumineers

While treatment with Lumineers tends to cost slightly more than that of traditional porcelain veneers, it offers a unique set of advantages which can make the investment worthwhile. Since your dentist can place Lumineers without altering the structure of your teeth, the treatment is completely reversible. If your Lumineers break or you decide you no longer want them, your dentist can remove them without having to place a crown to protect the tooth from sensitivity. In addition, Lumineers can last up to 20 years, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of your new smile for years to come.
