Frequently Asked Dentistry Questions

Have questions about your dental care? If so, then the team at Premier Dental is more than happy to answer them! We truly believe in the power of patient education, because in our experience, the more you know, the healthier you are! You’ll find answers to some of our most popular questions below, but if there is anything else you’d like to ask, feel free to give us a call anytime.

How frequently should I visit a dentist?

This really depends on your particular needs, but Dr. Adam and Dr. Giuliana recommend that patients of all ages should visit a dentist at least twice a year for a checkup and cleaning, even if they aren’t experiencing any dental problems. These appointments enable our team to catch and treat small issues before they have the chance to turn into big headaches.

What is a prosthodontist?

A prosthodontist is a type of dentist who specializes in restoring and replacing the teeth to bring back optimum appearance and function to the smile. In order to gain this distinction, a dentist must complete 3-4 years of intense training on top of dental school. One of the things that makes Premier Dental so unique is that we actually have 2 certified prosthodontists under one roof, meaning we’re able to offer a level of expertise not found at any other dental office. This helps our team handle even the most complicated cases with relative ease.

Can I bring my children to Premier Dental?

Yes! We welcome smiles of all ages through our doors. Whether you have a toddler, a teenager, or someone in between at home, we’ll know how to keep them comfortable while we provide all the services they need. Many of our team members (including Dr. Adam and Dr. Giuliana) are parents themselves, so nothing makes us happier than putting children on the path towards a lifetime of healthy smiles.

Do I really need to replace my missing teeth?

Yes, whether you are missing just one tooth or several, untreated tooth loss can lead to many serious oral health problems if ignored. On top of the obvious aesthetic concerns, the remaining teeth can shift out of place, the gums are more likely to develop an infection, and this all usually leads one place—more tooth loss! Thankfully, patients can prevent this and rebuild their smiles by visiting us and getting a custom-made replacement.

What is the best way to replace my missing teeth?

While the Premier Dental team is able to offer many different solutions to this problem, in most cases, our first recommendation would be dental implants. In short, they provide the most comprehensive solution to tooth loss available today and are able to offer a level of aesthetics, functionality, and durability way beyond all other treatments. At Premier Dental, our dentists are certified experts at using implants to rebuild smiles, and you can learn more about the treatment on our dedicated page here.

How can I get rid of the gap between my front teeth?

We actually offer two ways to handle this common flaw: cosmetic bonding and porcelain veneers. With bonding, a composite resin is used to build up the enamel and close the gap. For veneers, thin ceramic restorations are placed over the front of the teeth to give them a more uniform appearance. Both deliver beautiful, natural-looking results and can be trusted to last for decades. Which one would be best for you? Give us a call to find out!

Is there a way to save on my dental care if I don’t have insurance?

Yes! With our In-House Savings Plan, you can receive many of the same benefits as traditional insurance for a lower price and with fewer headaches. Just one low annual fee completely covers your basic dental care for the year and gives you a 10% discount on all other restorative treatments. Once you sign up, you’re instantly covered, and there is literally no limit to how much you can save. You can learn more about it and how to sign up by clicking here.
