Frequently Asked Dental Questions - Dallas, TX

Answers to Common Dental Questions

On this page, you’ll find a number of questions that we hear from potential new patients and returning patients alike. We want to make sure that you know everything necessary to make the best decisions about your oral health. If you have any questions that aren’t listed on this page, please contact our team today and let us know what’s on your mind.

Why do I need to see the dentist every six months?

The American Dental Association’s recommendation is that you get a dental checkup and cleaning twice every year. Cavity and gum disease can develop in a short amount of time, and you may not notice the issue on your own until severe damage has been done. Regular checkups allow us to catch dental problems early and help you save money. We can also clean your teeth more thoroughly than you could on your own.

Do you have same-day appointments for dental emergencies?

Yes, we always do our best to see our patients on the same day that they call us for a dental emergency. This can include toothaches, lost teeth, and any other dental problem that requires urgent care. Once we’ve had a chance to examine your mouth, we can treat the issue at its source and stop your pain.

What are dental crowns made of?

Other dental offices still make crowns out of metal, but we prefer ceramic materials that are as beautiful as they are durable. Dental porcelain very closely resembles the color and light-reflective properties of real enamel, so it can be customized to blend in more easily with the rest of your natural smile.

Do you treat children?

Yes, we’re more than happy to work with children of all ages. Our friendly team members are used to working with younger patients who are nervous about visiting the dentist, and they’ll make sure your little ones have a comfortable experience from the beginning to the end of each of their visits.

Do you perform wisdom tooth extractions?

We perform tooth extractions for all kinds of reasons, and that naturally includes removing wisdom teeth. If we find that the wisdom teeth are impacted or are damaging the rest of your mouth, we can go over your options for extraction and arrange to have the procedure performed as soon as possible.

What cosmetic options do you offer?

There are many different options for changing your smile. A porcelain crown can be used to cover the entire tooth, or we can use veneers to hide the imperfections on the part of the enamel that’s usually visible whenever you smile. Various treatments might be suitable depending on what kind of cosmetic flaws you want to have corrected, so the first step will be to schedule a consultation with us.

Do you take dental insurance?

We are currently in-network with Metlife, Humana, United Healthcare, Aetna, and many more; we’re also happy to take most other PPO dental insurance plans, and we can answer your insurance questions if you call our dental office today with your insurance information.
