I Am Not Happy With My Smile or I Have Damaged Teeth, What Can I Do?
Our downtown Seattle dental clinic can provide you with several options for improving your smile and teeth. This will range from cosmetic dental options, to traditional tooth repairs. We will work closely with you to ensure you have the healthiest and best looking smile by the time our office is done.
How Much Should I Expect to Pay?
There is no one size fits all total for dental work. Individuals may only need a few simple repairs like cavities being filled. Others might need more advanced techniques like bleaching, gum reshaping, and the use of bonded materials. Before anyone in our downtown Seattle dental clinic begins working on your mouth, we will take the time to explain the potential costs for your approval.
I Have Dental Insurance, Will That Help?
This largely depends on the dental insurance you have. Some policies will only cover minor items like routine inspections. Others will provide a percentage of relief on major dental work, up to a capped maximum dollar amount. It is important to review your policy and determine what your insurance provider will cover. Of course, our office can also gain access to a report to give you an understanding of what they will pay.
Once My Mouth is Fixed, Is That It?
Modern dental materials are designed to last a long time. In order to preserve them, you need to take the time to floss and brush per your dentist’s recommendations. By doing this and keeping up with regular cleanings and examinations, your smile should last for years to come.
How Many Office Visits Will I Need?
Again, this varies based on the type of work being done. Some individuals may have their mouth restored in a single sitting. Others may experience the need to come a few times to work on the different quadrants of their mouth. We can come up with a schedule that will work for you at our dental clinic, and ensure that your trips to our downtown Seattle office are kept to a minimum.
Will Veneers Stop Future Cavities from Happening
Veneers have not been shown to increase or decrease the occurrence of cavities in patients. The best thing you can do for your oral health, is to continue to brush and floss, along with regular visits to the dentist.
Is It True That Porcelain Veneers Last Forever?
No. While a porcelain veneer can last up to 20 years in the mouth, your gums and the care of your teeth will both impact how long they will ultimately last.
I Want Dental Implants, How Do I Do This?
If you need dental implants, the first thing to do is to schedule an appointment with us in downtown Seattle. We can then inspect your mouth and determine what approach is the most appropriate for your dental implants. We may also explore other alternatives to preserve your natural teeth that can leave you with a beautiful smile.
You Made a Dental Recommendation I Don’t Want to Do
Your oral health is up to you and the decisions you make. While the dental clinic will make recommendations on what the dentist believes is best for you, if you want to take a reasonable alternative approach we are willing to work with you. After all, your smile is a reflection of you and you should love it.
If you are ready to improve the quality of your smile today, take the first steps and set up an appointment with us.
