FAQFrequently Asked Questions

  1. What is cosmetic dentistry?

    Cosmetic dentistry is a term that has evolved from marketing – it is not a dental “specialization” – rather it is standard dental practice. The term refers to a procedure that enables the restoration of chipped, spotted, discolored or gapped teeth. We use modern materials that match the shade, translucency, and texture of your teeth. Our goal is to have the end result appear as if no treatment was performed.

  2. I have been a little skeptical at times of some of my former dentists who have recommended solutions that appear to be “over-kill” (and overly expensive). What’s your approach?

    Capital Dental works together with you, the patient. We can only recommend treatment and leave it to the patient to decide what to do.

  3. Many of my friends take their children to Pediatric Dentist. Do you treat children?

    Yes we do. And we encourage our families to find a “family” dentist to treat all of their members. Children should visit a dentist every six months. We like to catch problems when they are small. Seeing the child every six months gives us the best chance to keep an eye out for any signs of early decay. Additionally, since teeth start coming and going, we like to have a history of each patient’s dental development. You should schedule the first appointment around the child’s second birthday so that we can check for good oral hygiene, cavities and any developmental or congenital abnormalities.

  4. My biggest fear is that the dental procedure will hurt. What do you do to help relieve this?

    From the moment each patient walks into our office we try to help them feel at ease. We understand that going to the dentist may be a scary thing for some people, so we try to make you as comfortable as possible. Once a patient is “numb,” each procedure should go smoothly. At any given time, if a patient communicates with us, we can administer more medicine if needed. We also offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) for those who may need something a little extra.

  5. I have a daughter in college. Should we find her a dentist near her campus or can she still be adequately serviced by our family dentist?

    Generally the best solution is for her to continue being seen by her family dentist. Since she should schedule an appointment every 6 months, most college students schedule during spring break, summers or over the Christmas break. Naturally if she has an emergency while away at school she should see a local dentist. We would be pleased to recommend someone.

  6. I’m over 50 and it’s been a long time since I’ve had a cavity. How frequently do I need to have dental exams?

    All people regardless of age should see a dentist every 6 months for regular dental visits. It’s important for “middle age” adults to seek out a dentist every 6 months for various reasons. As we age, we can face other issues that require treatment, for example, you may have to have plaque removed through a deep-cleaning method called scaling and root planing. This procedure helps remove bacteria that contribute to gum disease. Even though you may be “cavity free”, you can have gum and bone loss and need to be treated.
