Dental emergencies may result in varying degrees of pain, with mild to severe pressure, or due to facial injuries. If you’re experiencing an emergency, please don't hesitate to call Ideal Smiles Dentistry.

No one should suffer through constant, excruciating tooth pain, so we are available to assist you if oral pain becomes too much to handle. If dealing with one of these situations, we can help.

    Several factors can cause the need for emergency care, including:
  • Broken or fractured teeth
  • Swollen gums
  • Infected gums
  • General tooth decay
  • Abscessed teeth
  • A lost filling or crown (cap)
  • Bleeding after having a tooth pulled

Damage such as broken dentures, lost dental crowns, chipped teeth, loose fillings, etc. should be addressed as soon as possible. Leaving issues such as these untreated can progressively contribute to poor oral health, which can cause serious health issues.

So if facing a dental emergency, give us a call at (757) 394-8550 and Ideal Smiles Dentistry will address your needs as quickly as possible.


I walked in on a FRIDAY for a root canal after being stood up by another dentist. They were able to perform not one, but two root canals while being EXTREMELY patient and caring as I literally had a panic attack. Awesome customer service!

My initial visit to this clinic showed me why so many others have rated it so highly. From the lady at the front desk to the dental assistant, the sincere care and professionalism was par excellent. Dr. Shabana saw me and exhibited an unusual degree of concern, caring and professionalism. This clinic demonstrated to me a degree of friendliness and authentic caring beyond what I could have hoped for. I would definitely pass on to my friends..

I have been going to this dentist since last year July, and from the moment I walked in I felt at peace and when I met Dr. Shabana Zahir I felt the the passion she has for her job. Today was a big day for my smile and although we are not done with our work, I am in love with the outcome. I have never had a bad experience with any of the staff they are so loving and understanding and really strive to make you feel comfortable. There were a few times where I did have to wait a little longer then normal when it got busy but I would never walk away or complain because the work they do and the service you will receive is totally worth it. Dr. Zahir is a perfectionist and I love that I would absolutely recommend her and her office. I will definitely be going back to complete my work.

I had my first dental check up today in 6 years and am I glad I chose to ideal smiles dentistry! I needed quite some work done but they assured me everything will be okay and I’m in great hands and I was. This dentistry is professional, clean and has a great atmosphere. I needed 3 fillings and dr Zahir took care of me in an acceptional timely manor. She made sure I knew what to expect and kept checking up on me throughout the entire filling process. I am so relieved and now have a dentistry I can take my entire family to. Thank you all!! Look no further, this place is wonderful.

The staff is super friendly and Dr. Shabana Zahir is lovely. I've had multiple teeth filled and 2 cleaning after over 10 years of being scared to see the dentist. Best dentist I've ever been to. She is fast, friendly and very patient. I have super sensative teeth and she always made sure I was ok during my visits. She will show you her work and explain what was done and answers any questions you have.

Dr. Zahir and her staff is amazing! She is incredibly gentle and very patient! I was very impressed how quickly they got me in being a new patient that needed a cleaning, X-rays, and fillings. She is also open every other Saturday which really helps people that normally can't make their appointments during the week. If you are currently looking for a dentist you will not go wrong with Dr. Zahir and staff!!!

Very clean, professional. The ladies were very nice and made sure to make me feel comfortable. I went on a saturday, their busiest day, but was seen right on time. I hadn't been to the dentist in years, so even though I was nervous, they were very good to me, and not judgemental. I did not spend a lot of time with the main Dr., but she was precise and to the point. Efficient. I will be returning to have my tooth pulled and I am glad I will be going there to do. My insurance doesn't cover much, but their prices are reasonable, and it is worth paying for the proper care and people who want to ensure your comfort and least amount of pain. Thanks ladies!

Both myself and my husband are patients at Ideal Smiles Dentistry. In addition to receiving excellent dental care, we are always greeted by the helpful and friendly front desk staff, and each hygienist we have had takes such good care of us.

I have had multiple visits at Ideal Smiles Dentistry. Each visit with Dr. Zahir and her team have been very pleasant. If I had any questions, concerns, discomforts or comments the team was ready and willing to provide any adjustments needed and answer any questions. With being pregnant I was very concerned about getting a root canal, a few fillings and two extractions done. However, Dr. Zahir made me feel at ease with all procedures and did everything in a timely manner. I will definitely be recommending Ideal Smiles Dentistry to all my friends and family.

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!
