Frequently Asked Questions

Have a question for us? Then you’ve come to the right place! Below, you’ll find answers to some of the most common questions our patients ask every day. If you still have a question after reading through everything, don’t be shy, just call and ask! Dr. Sara Curcio and our team are more than happy to take extra time to make sure you completely understand your dental care.

How often should I visit the dentist?

According to our own Dr. Sara Curcio and the American Dental Association, patients of all ages should visit the dentist at least twice a year for a standard checkup and cleaning to keep their teeth healthy and avoid common dental conditions like tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease.

Do you see children?

We do! We’re always happy to see little smiles around our office. If your child hasn’t been to the dentist yet, we recommend bringing them in around their first birthday.

Can you fix my broken/decayed tooth?

We certainly can! If your tooth is only slightly damaged, we can likely repair with just a tooth-colored filling, but if it needs a little more help, we can completely rebuild it using a dental crown. Regardless of which we use, we’ll make sure your new tooth blends in seamlessly with your smile.

What should I do about my missing teeth?

You should replace them! Not only for your smile’s appearance but because missing teeth can lead to a whole host of oral health concerns as well. When it comes to tooth replacement, you have options. For a single missing tooth or a few in a row, a dental bridge is a fast, effective, and affordable solution. Dentures can be used if you’re missing more than just a few teeth, and with dental implants, we can give you the longest lasting and most natural-looking results possible. We’ll help you find the right solution for you!

My smile has some areas that can improve. Which one should I fix first?

This is a situation that many of our patients face, but with porcelain veneers, we can likely eliminate them all at once! This treatment can be used to whiten the teeth as well as fix chips, cracks, gaps, and even slightly misaligned teeth. They only take two appointments to get, and they’ll be custom-made to your exact specifications.

I have a severe toothache. Can you help?

Yes, we have restorative services that can be used to relieve dental pain. For the most severe, we may choose to utilize a root canal, which is used to treat teeth that have an infection deep within their innermost chamber where the sensitive nerve resides. Despite its dubious reputation, it’s actually one of the best tools we have to relieve dental pain and save teeth that would otherwise need to be extracted.

Will you accept my dental insurance?

Yes, we will! We happily accept dental insurance plans from a long list of providers, and we are in-network with Delta Dental, Anthem, Guardian, and MetLife. When you use your dental insurance with us, our team of experts will do everything they can to get the absolute most out of your benefits.
