Dental FAQs

We answer your dental questions!

I avoid dental visits because of anxiety... is this normal? Can you help?

Many people fear dental visits because of negative past experiences or control issues. We understand dental anxiety and offer a solution to help you overcome your stress. With oral conscious sedation, we can help you gain full peace of mind and body so that you can receive the dental work you need - and deserve.

I have not been to the dentist in years, and I'm ashamed to let a professional see the condition of my mouth. Is your staff judgmental?

First of all, congratulations on your wise decision to prioritize dental healthcare. Your mouth is a big part of your overall health, quality of life, and self-esteem. We will not judge you, but help you by addressing your oral problems, explaining treatment options, then scheduling a plan of action that suits your schedule and your budget. As a prosthodontist and general dentist, Dr. Davis can provide expert care in the areas of replacement teeth and restorative dental care.

What are my options to replace missing teeth?

We offer bridgework, dentures, and dental implant restorations to replace missing teeth. Learn more about these services on our services page, then call for a consultation. With X-rays, intraoral photos, and a thorough assessment of your dentition, the dentist can help you decide which replacement option will be best for you.

What is a cosmetic dentist?

Cosmetic dentistry is not a specialty recognized by the American Dental Association, so any general dentist can claim to be a cosmetic dentist. To choose a good cosmetic dentist, review the doctor’s before-and-after photos of actual cases, ask about his or her postgraduate education in cosmetic dentistry, and make sure that you feel confident and comfortable in the office.

I want to know more about changing my smile. What do you suggest?

An appointment. Your smile and your goals are unique. We offer a wide range of cosmetic services, and after your consultation, you'll know which services will deliver the smile of your dreams.

What can you do to improve the appearance of my smile?

Well, we'd like to start by evaluating your oral health, existing smile, and discussing your idea of a spectacular smile. We may suggest porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, replacement teeth, and replacing metal dental work with aesthetic restorations. However, your smile may benefit from some artistic bonding and reshaping or teeth whitening. Call to schedule a cosmetic consultation, and together, we'll determine the best road to your ideal smile.

My teeth are stained. Can you help?

Yes. We offer teeth whitening solutions to brighten teeth dramatically at home or in our office. Call for an appointment today!

Do you accept dental insurance?

For your convenience, we accept and file all dental insurance claims from all providers for your direct reimbursement. Additionally, we're in-network providers for the following insurance companies: Delta Dental Premier and Cigna Dental

What payment methods do you accept, and what are your financing options?

We work with CareCredit and CitiHealth for patients who would like to finance their dental work. Cash, checks, and Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express are also welcome.
