When pursuing dental treatment or planning to visit a new dental office for the first time, it’s understandable that most patients will have some questions about what to expect. At Flawless Smile Dentistry, we always want our patients to feel confident about trusting their oral health in our hands. Below, we’ve compiled some of the most popular FAQ’s we receive and their answers for added convenience. Do you not see the information you’re looking for here? Contact us today in Broken Arrow and ask us directly!
What can you do to improve the appearance of my smile?
Well, we’d like to start by evaluating your oral health, looking at your existing smile, and discussing your goals for it. We may suggest porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, replacement teeth, or cosmetic bonding. Your smile may also benefit from Zoom! Teeth Whitening. Maybe Invisalign clear braces will give you the straight smile you’ve always wanted. Call to schedule a cosmetic consultation, and together, we’ll determine the best road to your ideal smile.
My smile is crooked, but I don't want the immature look of braces. Is there a solution for me?
Absolutely! As a certified Invisalign dentist, Dr. Torabi offers a clear, removable alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign uses 3D imaging to design a custom set of aligners; then, the patient wears a new aligner every few weeks. For big events, simply remove the aligner. This less obvious orthodontia is popular with teens and adults. Make an appointment to learn which treatment will suit your lifestyle best.
What is the difference between veneers and Lumineers?
Lumineers are actually a brand of veneers that require minimal or no tooth preparation prior to placement. Some patients prefer Lumineers because of the quick application and reduced risk for sensitivity. However, others prefer traditional veneers because of their completely customized design.
What’s the best way to replace missing teeth?
While every patient’s needs, goals, and available budget are different, Dr. Torabi is most likely to recommend dental implants as the premier solution for rebuilding a healthy, long-lasting smile. Unlike more traditional prosthetics, implants faithfully replicate the entire tooth, including the root beneath the gums and jawbone. This helps prevent tissue deterioration (a common consequence of long-term tooth loss) while also restoring full function and aesthetic value.
How does the doctor keep up to date on current techniques, technology, and materials in dentistry?
Dr. Torabi – and our team – takes more than the state’s requirement for continuing education each year. We also read trade journals, attend professional association meetings, and do everything we can to keep in tune with the latest developments in general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry, as well as dental technology. We are passionate about our careers, so we enjoy soaking up new information about our profession and then sharing it with you!
Do you accept dental insurance?
Yes. We accept several insurance providers, including: Delta Dental, United Concordia/Tricare, Aetna PPO and Premier, Health Choice, and Dental Connection. We can also file your claim as an out-of-network provider. Please call our office and our friendly staff will check your policy’s level of coverage.
