Frequently Asked Dentistry Questions
Have a question for us? Want to know if it’s time for your next checkup or if we’ll accept your dental insurance? Below, you’ll find answers to some of the most common questions our patients ask us every day. If you happen to have a question that we haven’t answered here, please don’t hesitate to give us a call! We’re always happy to talk dentistry and make sure you completely understand your care options.
How often should I go to the dentist?
Our doctors agree with the American Dental Association on this one: the average person should visit their dentist at least twice a year for a checkup and cleaning. This is the best way to keep a smile looking great as well as prevent the most common dental issues, including tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, and more.
Do you accept children?
We certainly do! We’re happy to treat smiles of all ages, and that includes the youngest members of your family. We recommend bringing your child in for regular appointments starting around the age of three.
How should I replace my missing teeth?
This answer will really vary from individual to individual based on a few factors, but we’re happy to offer a variety of restorations that can reliably replace any number of teeth. We have traditional bridges, dentures, and we can even provide all-inclusive dental implant care right here in our dental office. Our team will help you select the best solution for you after a consultation.
What is “CEREC”?
CEREC stands for CEramic REConstruction, and it’s a CAD/CAM system that allows us to design, fabricate, and place a completely custom-made dental crown in just one easy appointment. Previously, this process would require at least two appointments spaced at least a week apart, but now, you can get your damaged teeth fully repaired in just a fraction of the time without compromising quality.
Can you make my smile look better?
Yes! Everything we offer has some aesthetic benefit, but for more dramatic results, we have a selection of cosmetic services. Whether you simply want a whiter smile or a complete makeover, we have the knowledge and the artistic touch you need to achieve your perfect look.
Will you accept my dental insurance?
We do accept dental insurance, and we’ll even handle the claims process on your behalf to make sure you’re getting the most out of your benefits. To learn how we can use your particular plan, contact us today.
Do you offer any financing?
We can help our patients get low-to-no interest financing through CareCredit to help manage their out-of-pocket costs. To explore their plans and find one that works for you, click here.
