What Can Cosmetic Dentistry Do?
A: If you’d like a gorgeous grin, cosmetic dentistry can help you accomplish your goal. It includes several services that repair and conceal stained, discolored, chipped, pitted, cracked, gapped, uneven, worn, and misshapen teeth. There’s virtually no end to the ways we can use cosmetic dentistry to beautify your smile.
Do You Offer Orthodontic Treatment for Adults?
A: We do! Many of our adult patients who are self-conscious about their crooked teeth but reluctant to wear braces have straightened their smiles with Invisalign. This treatment uses clear plastic aligners instead of bulky metal hardware to straighten your teeth, usually in less time than braces. You can remove the aligners for meals, which means you can eat whatever you’d like. The removable aligners make it easier to keep your teeth clean too!
Q: Can You Help My Smile?
A: Absolutely! At Family Dental Care in Bevil Oaks, we have a number of cosmetic dentistry options to help you get the smile you’ve always wanted. For whiter teeth, we offer Zoom & Opalescence Go whitening. For the smile of your dreams, our traditional or e.max dental veneers are the long-term solution. We’ll be happy to discuss which “smile brightening” options are right for you.
Which Is Better: Implants or Dentures?
A: Conventional dentures cost less than dental implant dentures. However, some of the benefits of implants may make it worth the added cost. For instance, dental implants will keep you from suffering the bone loss that causes your jaw to shrink, giving you an older appearance and making it more difficult to keep your dentures in place. They can also last a lifetime.
Do You Accept My Insurance?
A: It’s very likely we do! We work with most dental insurance plans, including Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, Cigna, Delta Dental, MetLife, and all PPO plans. We also accept MCNA and DentaQuest for patients ages 3-21. We also have plenty of payment options to help for expenses not covered by insurance. For example, you can use third-party financing from CareCredit.
For those without insurance, we even have an in-house financing plan. You’ll receive all your routine dental care like exams and a discount on other services by paying an annual fee and small monthly payments.
Can You Take Care of My Child’s Teeth?
A: Of course! Dr. Harry Nelams offers family dentistry for children as young as 3 and is happy to welcome young children to our office with “happy visits.” We’ll introduce them to our team and show them how we care for their teeth. We’ll even give them a toothbrush to spark their interest in home oral hygiene. As they get older, they can earn prizes as members of our No-Cavity Club. We offer preventive care like fluoride and dental sealants to keep their teeth free of cavities.
My Damaged Teeth Make It Hard to Eat; Can You Help?
A: We have many options for repairing dental damage, including replacing missing teeth. A durable dental crown is the right restoration for fixing many kinds of problems, including large cavities, broken teeth, and cracked teeth. You can even replace a single tooth with a crown when it’s attached to a dental implant. We offer several kinds of dentures to replace teeth, including dental implant dentures. You can also replace several adjacent teeth with a dental bridge.
