Absolutely amazing!!!!!!! I being a business owner myself am always on lookout for how another great company does business weird right? Stay with me and I'll explain as I was gripped in horrible pain all through the night Jan 24 2017 I was looking for any remedy from homeopathic to voodoo for all I cared! Point is I researched everything and emergency dentist services came up and I found my miracle. I noticed hours of office thought well a couple more hours and just maybe, fingers crossed I put in for an online appointment saying asap assuming nothing; never have I ever been so glad to be wrong! They called me promptly at opening and I was in door 30 minutes later I can't make this up! I felt like an ice pick was in my tooth working it's way up to my brain! They took time to listen to me, addressed my concerns and could have charged me anything and I would have agreed! The most astonishing part was the very reasonable cost of my surgical extraction, the sincere concern the Dr and her entire staff showed and they kept apologizing to me for any delay, irony being at my former regular dentist everything would have taken longer with a prearranged appointment long in place. Anyways I could go on and on but do yourself a favor and go see Ideal Smiles Dentistry and you will get a whole new perspective on dentists!!!!!! Ty again everyone!!!!!!

I went to Ideal Smile to get my tooth taken out it was so fast and painless and I had a terrible experience with dentists before but this time she and her staff was very nice and warm people so it put me at ease. I cracked my tooth on Thanksgiving and I am confident that she can fix it with an affordable price.

Hi all. I was experiencing extreme tooth pain on a Friday when many dentist offices are closed. I called around to see if any dentist office that was open would help me. Keep in mind that this was late in the afternoon on a Friday, not to mention that I suffer from severe dental phobia. Not only was Ideal Smiles, located at 367 Independence Blvd across from Pembroke Mall, open, but they squeezed me in during an already busy day. Although they do not have nitrous oxide, Dr. Zahir, Ashley and staff were able to make me feel comfortable enough to go through an emergency root canal without it. I highly recommend them for all your dental needs and I will be a customer for life.

Sent an appointment request online and received a call back almost immediately. We were also given an appointment the same day. They have a lovely office, friendly and helpful staff and a very quick and thorough dentist. My daughter was in no pain as she received treatment. They more than took care of her dental needs. They exceeded my expectations. Very pleased, happy to go back and excited to recommend to others. Thank you!

Dr. Zahir is very friendly and knowledgeable. She taught me something new about the deep pockets around the teeth. Ashley and Alyssa are sweethearts, gentle, and very kind. They are genuine and one of the most down-to-earth persons you will ever meet. The staffs at the front desk are super funny! Everyone remembers my name in one visit, and they always give me sincere smiles. :) The place itself is super nice. They have TVs, magazines, etc. I have had wonderful times on my visits. What I like most about this place is simply the fact that they interacted with me, while they were cleaning my teeth. I highly recommend and encourage this place for anyone, who is looking forward to have enjoyable conversations and great experiences with staffs.

After not having been to the dentist in a number of years, I was extremely nervous and worried about my upcoming appointment. From the moment I scheduled my appointment, to the actual dental procedures being done, Ideal Smiles' entire staff has been absolutely wonderful. I was comfortable throughout my procedures, and kept informed about what needed to be done every step of the way. I was even entertained during my appointment! I needed to have quite a bit of work done and Dr. Zahir has been awesome. My entire family uses Ideal Smiles and we couldn't be more pleased. If I moved out of this area, I can honestly say, I would still make the trip just to have any future check ups and work done at Ideal Smiles. That's how awesome they are!

Dr. Zahir and entire staff of Ideal Smiles are very polite and fun. Everytime I come to my appointment, there is no dull moment. I love how they joke around each other, making the whole expirience light and fun as possible. I love Joy and Ashley as my DA and along with Dr. Z, them 3 will just make you smile and laugh. Also, I love when Dr. Z follow up on her patients at the end of the day to see how they are doing after a major procedure. I highly recommend Ideal Smiles. I'm happy that I found this office.

Cleaning & Prevention
Even careful daily brushing and flossing may miss some of the hard-to-reach areas of back teeth. Once plaque starts to form, if not cleaned properly it will harden into tartar. Tartar must be removed with a professional cleaning before it accumulates below the gumline; otherwise, it develops into bacterial infection of the gums. Not only do you risk losing your teeth, but research has demonstrated a link between this type of infection and serious conditions like stroke, diabetes, and heart disease. We recommend having your teeth cleaned by our hygienist on a regular basis to keep your teeth and gums healthy, and to lessen the risk of problems for other health conditions.
Dental Crowns
Are you tired of staring at that chipped tooth at the front of your mouth? Ideal Smiles Dentistry may have the answer, and it comes in the form of dental crowns. As a trusted dentist office in Virginia Beach, VA, we offer crowns for cosmetic and restorative purposes so that our valued patients can enjoy their smiles while preserving their oral health.

If you know that you need a crown, or if you have a toothache, please call us immediately. A damaged tooth will only get worse if left untreated.
Dental Bridges
Missing teeth can have a serious effect not only on your smile, but also on your oral health. Missing teeth can impact the alignment and integrity of your surrounding teeth, causing you further problems down the road. And missing teeth can also result in unwanted periodontal disease and decay. If you're missing teeth, come to Ideal Smiles Dentistry in Virginia Beach, VA that provides dental bridges to patients in need.

There are a variety of different bridges. Dr. Zahir will guide you in deciding which option best fits your needs.
Dental Fillings
A filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks or fractures. In just one appointment, the decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed, cleaned and filled. There are many types of filling materials. When choosing yours, consulting with Ideal Smiles Dentistry is strongly recommended.
Dental Implants
Dental implants are used to replace single or multiple missing teeth. They're designed to give you the strength, stability, resilience and support of your natural teeth.

Dental implants are replacements for both the root and the tooth made to provide the needed support in your mouth. The implants are surgically placed in the upper and lower jawbone of your teeth. When attached, they look and feel like natural teeth and enhance and restore your smile.

Complete or partial dentures can replace your missing teeth and give you the confidence to smile. Dentures can be used to replace teeth that have been lost due to trauma, decay, or gum disease. It is important to replace missing teeth, not only because teeth help with eating food, but because they help support the facial muscles and are critical for speech.
Invisalign® is the clear way to straighten teeth without braces, using aligners. Aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing; and you can still eat and drink what you want. Also, you can brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth; and there are no wires, metal or brackets to cause mouth abrasions.
Six Month Smiles (Clear Adult Braces)
Straight Teeth in Just Six Months! Why Wait Any Longer?
