Frequently Asked Dentistry Questions
Picking a new dental office for you and your family is an important decision. You want to make sure all your needs will be met, and you’ll receive the high-quality care you deserve. To help you in your choice, we’ve provided answers to some of the most common questions that we get. If you have others, we invite you to contact us!
How often should I visit the dentist?
At Solomon Dental Group, we recommend that you come into our dental office at least twice a year for a checkup and cleaning. During these regular appointments, one of our dentists will examine your teeth and gums to make sure they are free from infection. If we find a problem, we’ll arrange to quickly resolve it so that you don’t have to experience damage or pain to your smile. Then, we’ll remove accumulated plaque, preventing problems from developing in the future.
Do you offer metal-free dental crowns?
Yes, we do! We understand that you want a solution that not only functions well but looks natural too. Our metal-free crowns have such a realistic appearance that others won’t know that you ever had a problem there to begin with.
I have multiple flaws in my smile. Is there an easy way to fix it?
Absolutely! Instead of doing several procedures to address your gapped, chipped, discolored, or otherwise imperfect teeth, lifelike porcelain veneers or Lumineers can be placed to cover your teeth. In just two visits, you could have a completely transformed smile that lasts for decades at a time. During your consultation, one of our dentists can evaluate your teeth and see if porcelain veneers or Lumineers would best meet your needs.
How is Solomon Dental Group like a family?
Unlike other dental offices, we’ve designed our dental office to feel less like an office and more like a home. Our genuine, caring team wants patients to feel completely at ease here, so we take the time to get to know each person and understand their unique dental needs. Then, we perform the type of high-quality work that we’d want for our own families. By the time we’re finished with an appointment, we leave our patient with a happier, healthier smile and feeling truly appreciated and cared for.
How can a dentist help with a sleeping problem?
Our experienced dental team can offer treatment for sleep apnea, a condition that impairs breathing during sleep. As a Diplomate of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine, Dr. Glick can provide unique, expert care through an oral appliance or other therapies. As a result, we can keep the airways open and give you a good night’s rest and higher quality of life.
Which cosmetic dental procedure is right for me?
At Solomon Dental Group, we offer many cosmetic services, including porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, cosmetic bonding, and even gum recontouring. To determine which service will give you the smile you’ve always wanted, you need to schedule a consultation with one of our skilled dentists. During this appointment, we’ll examine you and provide treatment recommendations.
Do you accept my dental insurance?
Although we are not in network with dental insurance companies, we gladly accept and work with any PPO insurance plan. We handle filing claims for you, so you don’t have to feel the stress and confusion of dealing with insurance paperwork.
