Frequently Asked Dental Questions – Lansing, MI

What’s on
Your Mind?

Everyday our patients come to us with all kinds of questions about our practice and the service provide. There are several questions that we’ve heard particularly often, so we decided that it would be helpful to list the answers here for you. Of course, even after reading through this page, you’ll probably still have some questions of your own. Please call us or send us a message; our team will gladly spend whatever time is necessary to explain your care.

How Many Appointments Do I Need Each Year?

No matter how old you are, it’s generally recommended that you visit the dentist a minimum of two times a year to have your teeth cleaned and examined for signs of decay. Patients with advanced oral health problems might need more frequent visits.

How Can You Improve the Appearance of My Smile?

We have a wide range of cosmetic services at our disposal, from lifelike crowns expertly customized to resemble the real thing to whitening procedures that can remove all kinds of discoloration. If you visit us for a cosmetic consultation, we can use virtual smile design software to show you what your teeth will look like after using a specific treatment to address your cosmetic flaws.

Can You Replace My Missing Teeth?

Of course we can! Depending on how many teeth were lost and the state of your oral health, we can offer several different treatments. This includes dental implants that, thanks to our advanced cone beam scanner and our in-house specialists, can be expertly placed and restored in house. Living with missing teeth for too long can lead to numerous oral health issues, so call us to schedule a consultation right away.

Will I Need to Get Braces for Crooked Teeth?

While braces are sometimes required to make extensive adjustments in complex orthodontic cases, many adults and teens can enjoy a much more discreet and comfortable alternative through Invisalign. These plastic aligners are virtually unnoticeable in your mouth while they adjust your teeth, meaning most people won’t even realize you’re wearing them.

What Should I Do About Gum Disease?

Gum disease might seem like a mere annoyance at first (assuming you even realize you have it), but it can eventually cost you your teeth. If you want to keep your smile intact, call us as soon as you notice swollen gums or frequent oral bleeding. Our in-house periodontist can treat your infection and prevent the long-term damage to your smile.

Will You Accept Dental Insurance?

We accept many different insurance plans and are in-network with several major providers. If you have any questions about your own policy, call us today.
