How often should I visit the dentist?

You should plan to see a dentist every six months for regular dental checkups and teeth cleanings. These visits allow for a thorough examination to determine if tooth decay, damage, or infection exists, and a professional teeth cleaning removes accumulated plaque and tartar, minimizing the potential for gum disease and cavities.

Will my dental implant look natural?

When having a dental implant to replace your missing tooth, you’ll be pleased to learn that the materials used to craft your restoration will look and feel completely natural. Because the implant fuses with the bone, it mimics the natural structure of the tooth, and the restoration blends in seamlessly with the rest of your smile.

Will others notice my Invisalign braces?

One of the greatest advantages of Invisalign is the ability to enjoy a discreet orthodontic treatment. As long as you remember to remove your trays before eating or drinking, brush your teeth, and thoroughly clean your aligners, you should have no problems keeping your braces virtually invisible.

Why is professional teeth whitening better than over-the-counter products?

When purchasing a store-bought teeth whitening kit, you’ll discover the results are often lackluster. However, with professional teeth whitening, Dr. Singh will oversee your treatment to ensure a safe and effective solution, and the bleaching gel that is used is professional-grade, which means it can easily eliminate intrinsic and extrinsic tooth stains.
