Frequently Asked Dental Questions – Reno, NV
You Deserve to Be Informed
Dentistry can be simple, but it can also be complicated, especially if you have not been to the dental office in a long time, or you need a treatment that you are not very familiar with. Regardless, Village Dental is happy to answer all of your questions directly when you call. Of course, those who have a more common question may find it on our FAQ page below. If not, feel free to contact us directly and we’ll do whatever we can to help!
Do you see kids?
Not only are we happy to see kids at our dental office but we will gladly see patients of any age. In fact, pediatric dentists recommend parents to bring their children in for their first dental appointment as young as one year of age. We’ll make sure that your child feels comfortable during every step of their appointment, ensuring they feel confident coming back for future checkups.
Can you replace missing teeth?
We’re happy to provide multiple tooth replacement options at our dental office, including long-lasting dental implant restorations. These restorations are capable of replacing both single and multiple teeth, depending on your needs. When you arrive, we’ll examine your smile and confirm which tooth replacement option is best for you.
Do I need metal braces to shift teeth?
Not necessarily. When teeth are severely misaligned, back teeth need to be straightened, or the bite is significantly uneven, metal braces may be the best option. However, those with only mild to moderate misalignment can make use of Invisalign instead. We are proud Invisalign in our dental office. This treatment utilizes custom-made clear aligners that gently, yet effectively shift teeth into a straighter position.
How can you improve my smile’s appearance?
Through cosmetic dentistry, our dental office can make even the most imperfect teeth look radiant and beautiful, so don’t feel ashamed or embarrassed about completing cosmetic treatment with us! With services like porcelain veneers, metal-free restorations, and take-home whitening kits, there’s something for everyone at Village Dental.
Can I visit for dental emergencies?
Yes you can. The last thing you should do when experiencing a dental emergency is put off dental care that you need. When you call within our dental office hours, we will do everything possible to get you seen the same day that you call. In the event that you call after hours, you’ll have a chance to leave a voicemail that goes directly to one of our dentists. If the situation is severe, they’ll be in touch with you shortly to provide additional guidance.
When do I need to visit for a checkup?
Our dental office generally recommends patients to visit us at least once every six months for an exam and cleaning. This is the best way to catch underlying dental problems before they have a chance to turn into larger issues (or dental emergencies for that matter.) However, if you have periodontal (gum) disease, you will likely need to visit more often than every six months.
Do you take my insurance?
Our dental office is happy to be in-network with most major dental insurance providers. If you are unsure if we accept your plan, we encourage you to give us a call ahead of your next appointment, text a picture of the front & back of your insurance card to our dental office number, or submit the insurance verification form.
