Dental Implants

What types of implants do you offer?

We treat a range of tooth loss cases by offering both single tooth and All-on-4 implants.

How much do dental implants cost?

The full cost of your dental implant procedure will depend on your overall treatment needs, such as the extent of restoration required to complete your smile. Our team will provide you with a complete breakdown of all costs and payment options.

Do you offer sedation?

We offer safe, gentle laughing gas sedation to patients undergoing a variety of treatments, including tooth extractions and implant procedures.

What if I don’t get an implant?

If you’ve lost one or more teeth, it’s important to replace them as soon as you can. Missing teeth can impact your oral health as well as your overall physical well-being, causing problems biting, chewing, and eating properly. You also have a greater chance of developing gum disease, TMJ, crooked teeth, and other issues if you go without replacing your missing teeth.

Do implants hurt?

You will require a minor surgical procedure to place the implants in your jaw. Following your procedure, it’s normal to experience some pain and swelling while your mouth heals. Our team will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions and prescribed pain relievers (as needed) to help you manage any discomfort you may experience.


Can teens get Invisalign?

Yes, teens can benefit from Invisalign treatment. Many young patients may be candidates for clear aligners, so be sure to talk to our team about an Invisalign consultation for your teen or tween.

Is Invisalign covered by insurance?

The cost of Invisalign treatment is typically covered in part by most dental insurance plans. Your out-of-pocket expenses will depend on your plan and stated benefits. We’ll be sure to confirm your benefits to help you make the most of your coverage. 

How much does Invisalign cost?

Invisalign is a flexible treatment that can be tailored to your needs. We’ll have to perform a full assessment of your teeth during your consultation so we can provide you with a breakdown of all treatment costs. That said, Invisalign is comparable to the cost of braces, making it affordable for most patients.


Are veneers permanent?

Porcelain veneers are permanently bonded to your teeth and can only be removed by a dentist in order to be repaired or replaced. Lumineers can be removed without any damage to your teeth. Composite veneers are made of resin which mimics the quality and appearance of enamel and is sculpted directly onto the tooth. This means they can be easily repaired or replaced without any major dental work.

How long do veneers last?

Your veneers will eventually need to be replaced. Porcelain veneers typically last 10-15 years, while composite resin veneers can last 5-7 years. Lumineers can also last up to 10 years with good at-home care.

Do veneers hurt?

The process of preparing your teeth to receive porcelain veneers requires a small amount of enamel to be removed, but it’s a painless procedure thanks to local anesthesia. You may experience some tenderness in the gums following the application of your new veneers while you adjust to them, but this sensation is generally mild and passes quickly.

How long does it take to get veneers?

Porcelain veneers and Lumineers typically take 2-3 visits over the course of a few weeks. This includes your initial consultation, tooth preparation, receiving your temporary veneers, and your final veneers coming back from the lab for application. Lumineers require no tooth preparation at all. Composite veneers take 1-2 visits, from the initial consult to the application appointment. They can be applied directly to the surfaces of your teeth by the dentist without tooth preparation. 

What type of veneers do you offer?

We offer a full selection of cosmetic veneers to meet your specific dental needs, including porcelain veneers, composite veneers, and Lumineers made from ultra-thin porcelain.
