Have a question? Then you’ve come to the right place! Our patients ask us interesting questions every day, so we thought it would be helpful to include some of the most common ones right here on our website. If you have a question that we haven’t answered here, be sure to let us know. Nothing is too small or too silly, so if there is something that you’d like to know, please just ask!
How often should I visit my dentist?
Dr. Rana Lee agrees with the American Dental Association on this one: patients of all ages should visit their dentist at least twice a year for a routine checkup and cleaning. This will help stop most dental issues before they even start, and it’s the best way to maintain a beautiful and healthy smile for years to come.
Can you help fix my cavity?
We certainly can, and we have a couple of ways we can do it. If it is a small cavity, we can likely fix it using a tooth-colored filling. However, if the damage is a little more extensive, we may choose to use a dental crown. In any case, we’ll make sure that your restoration strengthens your teeth and blends in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.
Can you help replace my missing teeth?
If you are missing a single tooth or a few right next to each other, we can restore them using a dental bridge. If your tooth loss is a little more extensive, we can make you a comfortable fitting and natural-looking set of dentures.
However, for the most comprehensive tooth replacement, we may suggest dental implants. With this treatment, we can rebuild your smile from the root up and give you the best when it comes to security, longevity, AND aesthetics no matter how many teeth you have missing.
I don’t like how my smile looks. Can you help?
We have an entire range of cosmetic treatments specifically designed to improve the appearance of your smile. Whether you just want simple teeth-whitening or are looking for a complete makeover, you can trust that we’ll have exactly what you need to get the smile you desire.
Do you offer orthodontics?
We have a variety of orthodontic treatments that are perfect for patients of all ages.
For younger ones, we can offer reliable and cost-effective metal braces.
For adults and older children, we have Invisalign and Six Month Smiles. Invisalign uses clear aligner trays to straighten the teeth, providing a discreet solution that helps patients maintain their appearance during treatment.
With Six Month Smiles’ patented design, we can make a smile appear much straighter in just a fraction of the time needed by traditional orthodontics.
My gums always bleed whenever I brush my teeth. Is this normal?
This can happen if A.) You are brushing and/or flossing too hard, or B.) You have the early stage of gum disease. Try cleaning your teeth with a lighter touch for about a week, and if you still see blood in the sink, be sure to give us a call. You could very well have an infection, and we’ll be able to quickly identify and eliminate it using periodontal therapy.
Will you accept my dental insurance?
We are an in-network provider with some of the most common dental insurance plans, and you can view a complete list right here. When you use your dental insurance with us, we’ll make it as simple as possible to get every dollar out of your coverage.
