Dental Implants

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.

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.

What are the benefits of implants over dentures?

Besides improved aesthetics and increased stability, implants stimulate jawbone tissue growth and fuse with the jawbone itself. This can prevent or reverse the natural tissue loss that occurs when you lose one or more teeth.

What are implants made out of?

Dental implants made out of a biocompatible metal called titanium. Titanium is unique in that it bonds with surrounding bone tissue and stimulates tissue growth, fusing with it.

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.


How much does ClearCorrect cost?

ClearCorrect 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, ClearCorrect is comparable to the cost of braces, making it affordable for most patients.

Is ClearCorrect covered by insurance?

The cost of ClearCorrect 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. 

Can teens get ClearCorrect?

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


Are veneers permanent?

Yes, veneers are a permanent treatment. Veneers are bonded to your teeth and can only be removed by a dentist in order to be repaired or replaced.

How long do veneers last?

Your veneers will eventually need to be replaced. Porcelain veneers typically last 10-15 years, while ceramic resin veneers can last 15-20 years.

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 and ceramic veneers 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. 

What type of veneers do you offer?

We offer a selection of cosmetic veneers to meet your specific dental needs, including porcelain veneers and ceramic veneers.
