Frequently Asked Questions
Dentistry can be intimidating or confusing at times, which is why our staff of experienced clinicians is always available to answer questions from patients. More than anything, we want you to feel confident about the care you receive at City Center Dental Group! For added convenience, we’ve compiled some of the most popular FAQs we hear and their answers below. Contact us directly in Englewood, CO if you still don’t see the information you’re looking for.
How often should I be going to the dentist?
That depends on the person. In most cases, patients should be planning to come in for a checkup and cleaning every six months, or twice each calendar year. These frequent visits give our team the ability to better understand your oral health over time and pinpoint any problems as soon as they develop, potentially saving you lots of time and cost.
If a patient has extenuating circumstances that need more diligent attention, such as a strong oversensitivity to tooth decay or the presence of gum disease, visits every three to four months may be the better option. We’ll be sure to let you know our recommendation after your first visit.
I’m missing teeth. What’s the best way to replace them?
Dental implants are the clear frontrunner for stable, attractive, and long-lasting tooth replacement. Unlike more traditional options, they actually rebuild the ENTIRE tooth, including the foundational root that’s hidden underneath the gum tissue. With a new “root” in place, patients can maintain better oral health while still enjoying top-tier oral function and aesthetics from their new smile addition.
Of course, there is no one service that can be the perfect fit for every patient. We’ll help you explore your options in greater detail during an initial consultation.
Can you help me improve the way my smile looks?
Of course! City Center Dental Group offers a wide variety of cosmetic services that are specifically designed to elevate your smile’s natural appearance, from porcelain veneers to metal-free restorative work to dazzling teeth whitening.
I’m overwhelmed by all the problems my teeth have. Where do I even start?
Take a deep breath and don’t panic. Our team has the extensive experience and advanced training needed to handle even the most complicated restorative and/or cosmetic situations. In fact, we can sit down with patients to develop a personalized full mouth reconstruction plan that features their ideal array of services. It’s never too late to regain an excellent smile, and we want to partner with you for this transformative process.
How long will it take to get a new dental crown?
With state-of-the-art CEREC technology, our team is able to design, craft, and place a brand-new, custom-made dental crown in one appointment! This saves our patients valuable time without cutting corners on the lasting quality that they deserve.
I’m experiencing a lot of jaw pain. What’s the problem?
Untreated bruxism (teeth grinding) may be the problem, or even the more serious TMJ disorder. Be sure to let our team know as soon as possible about chronic oral pain – we can perform an in-depth examination and diagnose your condition before any further damage can be done. Therapy options like custom-made oral appliances are available to bring back harmony to your smile!
Do you see dental emergencies?
Absolutely. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you’re experiencing severe oral pain, a broken tooth, a knocked-out tooth, or any other frightening dental injuries. Our Englewood team will do everything we can to accommodate emergency patients in need as soon as possible.
