You’ve Got Questions, We’ve Got Answers!

Why are six-month dental visits necessary? Can I be seen the same day for a dental emergency? These are just some of the common questions asked by patients seeking our help. Below you will find additional questions as well as answers from our expert dental professionals. If you do not see yours listed, please do not hesitate to contact our dental office.


Why are six-month dental visits necessary?

Dental checkups and cleanings every six months are necessary to ensure you don’t show signs of decay, infection, or damage. At-home oral hygiene routines are effective; however, professional checkups can address areas of the smile you might miss along the way. These visits are essential to minimizing future oral health problems.

What makes dental implants better than other tooth replacements?

Dental implants are the only tooth replacement solution to replace the entire root-to-crown structure. They’re permanently placed within the jawbone and provide continuous stimulation. Not to mention, they can last 30+ years. Dentures and dental bridges cannot offer the same unique benefits, which is why dental implants are viewed as the gold standard.

Can I be seen the same day for a dental emergency?

Yes! Our dental team will evaluate your situation over the phone and determine if you require a same-day emergency appointment. We’ll also provide at-home tips to help you manage your pain. We’ll then quickly work to eliminate your discomfort before crafting a personalized treatment plan.

Will my veneers look lifelike?

Our dentists are all skilled and experienced when it comes to placing veneers. Their keen eye for detail and careful hand will ensure each veneer is placed correctly and looks completely natural once in place. Should any adjustments be necessary, you can rest assured, we’ll take care of it.

Do you accept my dental insurance?

Yes, we are happy to welcome all dental insurances in our dental office. Our team will review your policy to identify the most effective ways to save on treatment, making sure you save more on the services you receive that day. We’ll even take care of all the paperwork!

If I’m uninsured, how can I make sure my dental care remains affordable?

Apart from the exclusive deals we offer, you can also apply for flexible financing through CareCredit. As a third-party financier, eligible enrollees can better manage their budget and pursue necessary treatment by signing up to pay monthly installments.
