Frequently Asked Dental Questions - Lancaster, TX

Common Dental Questions Answered

Are you looking for a new dental office to call home? You likely have questions about our dental office and services, and we want to make the decision to visit us an easy one. Below you’ll find responses to frequently asked dental questions that we hear from our patients. If you have others that aren’t discussed here, you are welcome to contact our team.

Why do I need to see the dentist every six months?

Along with the American Dental Association, we strongly recommend getting a dental checkup and cleaning twice every year because oral issues can develop in a short amount of time. These regular visits enable us to identify and treat problems as early as possible. When this happens, we can use less invasive treatments, which helps you save money. We also remove hardened plaque from your teeth, preventing future issues with your smile.

Do you have same-day appointments for dental emergencies?

Yes, we do! Our team doesn’t want you to suffer in pain for any longer than necessary. If you have a toothache, chipped tooth, or other dental emergency, give our dental office a call. We’ll schedule an appointment for you as soon as possible to relieve your pain and fix the problem quickly.

What are dental crowns made of?

Many other dental offices can use dental crowns that are made of metal. Although this material is very strong, it can draw the wrong kind of attention to your smile. At Sunny Dental, we use 100 percent porcelain crowns, which are durable, lifelike, and customized to fit your mouth perfectly.

Do you treat children?

Absolutely! We are happy to work with your little one. Our friendly team will do everything we can to make your child feel completely comfortable from beginning to end. With positive dental experiences at Sunny Dental, they can develop healthy oral habits that last for the rest of their life.

Do you perform wisdom tooth extractions?

We can handle basically all kinds of tooth extractions. Whether your wisdom teeth are impacted or you have extensive damage to a tooth, our team will walk you through the entire process and make sure that you’re comfortable. If necessary, we can also discuss your options for replacing the tooth.

What cosmetic options do you offer?

If you want to change the way your smile looks, we have a couple of options. If the tooth needs to be completely covered, we can use a customized porcelain crown. Otherwise, cosmetic bonding or porcelain veneers can hide imperfections, such as chips, gaps, discoloration, and more. During your consultation, we can discuss which treatment would best suit your unique needs.

Do you take dental insurance?

We accept most PPO dental insurance plans. We are in-network with Metlife, Humana, United Healthcare, Aetna, and many more. If you have an insurance question, just ask us. We can go through your benefits and find ways to save you money.
