Do you serve adults and children?
Yes, we do! At Distinguished Dental, we recognize that children need just as much attention as adults. If your son or daughter has begun to develop baby teeth, don’t hesitate to schedule a checkup for them today. We look forward to serving your entire family.
Do you offer braces for adults?
Yes, we do. We offer Six Month Smiles and Invisalign. Both are more discreet than traditional braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear trays that can be taken out for meals and for brushing and flossing. Six Month Smiles uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to produce results in just half a year. Dr. McIntosh has completed treatment with Six Month Smiles herself and would be happy to talk to you about it.
How often should I see Dr. McIntosh?
For optimal oral health, we recommend seeing Dr. Sherri McIntosh at least twice a year for checkups and cleanings. With frequent visits, we can provide more conservative care that helps you nourish and preserve your natural smile throughout the years.
Is cosmetic dentistry right for me?
Do you have teeth that are stained, chipped, cracked, worn, misaligned, or oddly spaced? Then a cosmetic service like porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, Six Month Smiles or Invisalign might be right for you. During a consultation appointment, Dr. McIntosh will complete a thorough oral exam and talk to you about your goals for your smile. Following this conversation, we will identify which services are best suited for you and help you create a personalized treatment plan.
How can I close a space between my teeth?
If you're looking to close a gap between your teeth, we have a few options available. Traditional orthodontics can be used to close a space between teeth and can also be used to correct a patient's bite if necessary. We can also use bonding which is a filling material that is applied to the tooth and shaped to fill the space in a way that is natural looking and comfortable. We can also discuss porcelain veneers. Veneers can be used on one or multiple teeth to help cover any space between teeth.
Do you accept financing?
Yes, we’re perfectly happy to work with both CareCredit and Springstone. Both services offer affordable payment plans so that patients can get the important care they need. Visit the CareCredit and Springstone websites to learn more about each.
Do you accept insurance?
Distinguished Dental is in-network with a variety of dental insurance providers. During your appointment, we’ll do our best to provide you with an accurate quote for treatment, but the actual cost will depend on the specifics of your plan. If you have questions about insurance and how it works, our team would be happy to answer them for you.
What should I do in an emergency?
If you’re in the middle of a dental emergency, call us right away. Some of the most common emergencies include: broken or knocked out tooth, cracked or fractured crown, and severe toothache. In certain cases, you may need to visit your local emergency room instead of our office, but in every case, we will do what we can to see you as soon as possible.
