The American Dental Association, along with pretty much all dentists, recommend receiving a checkup and cleaning once every six months. These are typically 100 percent covered by dental insurance plans, and they’re a crucial part of maintaining excellent oral health.
Even if you brush and floss, there are hard-to-reach areas of your mouth that can collect debris and plaque. If plaque isn’t removed from your teeth, it will harden into tartar, which can only be cleared away with a professional cleaning. By removing all plaque from your teeth every six months, you can drastically reduce your risk of developing common oral health problems like cavities and gum disease.

If the damage is minimal, we can utilize our cosmetic bonding treatment to repair it, which typically only takes between 30 minutes to an hour. If a larger portion of your tooth is missing, we may recommend having a crown or porcelain veneer placed. This process can take up to a couple weeks, due to the fact that we’ll need to custom-craft your restoration.
The cost of your dental visit will be determined by what services and treatments you receive. If you have dental insurance, we’ll make sure you get the most out of your benefits by maximizing your coverage ad filing claims on your behalf. We’re always transparent about the cost of any procedures we suggest so that there aren’t any unpleasant surprises when you checkout.
