Frequently Asked Dentistry Questions

When you’re in need of dental care, no matter how simple or complex it may be, it’s always better to be as informed as possible before making your decision. Some treatments may be better for your unique case than others, but you may not realize it until you speak with one of our dentists. Below, we’ve collected a series of the most commonly asked questions we hear at our dental office as a way to help you stay informed on certain procedures our dental office offers. If your question isn’t listed, feel free to give us a call.

Can you place dental implants in-house?

Not only can we place your dental implants in-house, but you have multiple options to choose from when it comes to replacing missing teeth. Dr. Redmond is an expert in implant placement and creating natural-looking restorations via CEREC technology.

My dental filling hurts. Can you replace it?

Dental fillings, especially when made from silver (amalgam), can cause negative side effects when they become worn down after many years of use. To prevent increased sensitivity and potential damage to the existing tooth structure, we can replace your filling with a tooth-colored composite resin material instead.

How long does a Dental crown take to receive?

Traditionally, you’d need to wait two weeks to have a crown designed and fabricated at an offsite dental lab, You’d also have to bite into gray impression material to have the model made. Thanks to CEREC technology, you can get a strong, natural-looking crown in about one hour.

Can you improve the way my smile looks?

Our dental office provides many solutions to fixing a number of imperfections in teeth. This includes gaps or rotated teeth via Invisalign®, chips or cracks with porcelain veneers, and significant discoloration with advanced teeth whitening solutions.

Do you see children?

Absolutely! We always accept younger patients and are happy to help you teach the best habits for maintaining long-term oral health. We also provide treatments proven to help protect their developing mouths, including dental sealants, fluoride treatment, and athletic mouthguards. We also cater to children who have special needs, so feel free to contact us in advance so we can better prepare for your upcoming visit if needed.

What is laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry is simply the use of laser technology to perform a variety of dental treatments. At our dental office, we utilize a diode laser to perform periodontal therapy, oral surgery, and other soft tissue treatments. Overall, it is more precise, gentle and comfortable to use compared to traditional metal instruments.

We welcome both same-day appointments and walk-ins, as dental emergencies are never something that should be put off.
