Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know when it is time to come in for a checkup?
We recommend you come in twice a year for a full-mouth checkup and thorough cleaning. These two convenient appointments may be all you’ll need to keep your smile clean and healthy. However, they also allow us to find problems in the earliest stages so that we can treat them quickly, efficiently, and conservatively. Before you leave our office, schedule your next visit at the front desk. We'll remind you of your appointment as the time draws near.
My gums bleed after I brush. Is this something to be concerned about?
Red, swollen, bleeding gums may be signs of periodontal disease, the primary reason that adult Americans lose teeth. Also called gum disease, periodontal disease has been linked to increased risk for stroke, heart disease, low-weight births, and complications for diabetics. Call or e-mail us right away for a periodontal screening before this pervasive infection gets out of hand. Learn more about gum disease in our patient library.
I want straighter teeth, but I do not want to wear braces. What would you recommend?
Have you thought about porcelain veneers? They offer a permanent solution to crooked, chipped, or uneven teeth and have rejuvenated the smiles of celebrities, models, and working folks like us. Veneers can also transform a smile’s shape, color, and size because each is handcrafted by a ceramic artist in a dental lab.
Do you offer financing options?
Yes. To make paying for cosmetic procedures more affordable, we offer CareCredit dental financing. Take advantage of their competitive interest rates and interest-free terms, and get the smile of your dreams!
Will you care for my entire family?
Certainly! We feel honored when patients trust us with the precious smiles nearest to their hearts.
