Dental Health FAQs

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that you have a dental checkup and professional cleaning every six months.

It means we ensure that, from the time you walk through the door until you walk out, your visit is as free of stress and discomfort as possible. We offer treatment options that do not require local anesthetic. Whenever possible, we alleviate pain by the means most comfortable for you.

Please call our office as soon as possible. We will happily work you into the schedule during regular business hours. If you have a dental emergency that happens after hours, over the weekend, or during holidays, please call your doctor at home or go to your local emergency room.
Yes. We accept many types of insurance, as well as MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express. We also offer financing through CareCredit.

Yes. There are several methods that can be used to whiten teeth, including in-office, overnight, and daily treatments.

We offer ZOOM!® whitening in our office. One session generally lasts one and a half to two hours. You can read or relax during the process.

If you prefer overnight bleaching, we will make a mold of your teeth and create a mouthguard that fits your bite. You will simply fill the mouthguard with a small about of bleaching gel and water and wear it overnight or for a few hours during the day. This approach to bleaching takes about two weeks.

PLEASE NOTE: It is not recommended to begin any over-the-counter bleaching regimen before consulting with your dentist.

Porcelain veneers and bonding are ideal for patients with these concerns. Veneers are designed to look like your natural teeth. They are individually and permanently attached to the fronts of your teeth. Bonding, on the other hand, uses a composite material made of plastic to fill in areas of your teeth and correct chipping and shape problems. Both porcelain veneers and bonding are color-matched to your existing teeth.
