FAQs

Will it hurt?

There are few issues in our practice that have been the focus of as much emphasis as this one. Today, with advances in equipment and medications, our clients state they are much more comfortable in their treatment. Once we have a treatment plan outlined, your specific questions about discomfort and pain control can easily be answered. Above all don't put off cosmetic procedures, and certainly needed dental care, because of past fears of pain. Give us the chance to show you what today's dentistry offers.

How long will it take?

Each individual client is a unique case; therefore it is difficult to quote a time schedule. On average, an in house whitening procedure will last about an hour and a half. Bonding cases can be accomplished in a matter of hours in one visit. Other cases that involve bridges and porcelain veneers require us to prepare the teeth on the first visit, after which you will be sent home with a customized temporary set of teeth. After your case is returned from our laboratory, we will seat your permanent crowns, veneers or bridges.
