Frequently Asked Questions
What can you do to improve the appearance of my smile?
Well, we'd like to start by evaluating your oral health, existing smile, and discussing your idea of a spectacular smile. We may suggest porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, replacement teeth, and replacing metal dental work with esthetic restorations. However, your smile may benefit from some artistic bonding and reshaping. Maybe Invisalign clear braces will give you the straight smile you've always wanted. Call to schedule a cosmetic consultation, and together, we'll determine the best road to your ideal smile.
I avoid dental visits because of anxiety. Is this normal? Can you help?
Many people fear dental visits because of negative past experiences or control issues. We understand dental anxiety and offer a solution to help you overcome your stress. With relaxation dentistry, Dr. Nelson can help you gain full peace of mind and body so that you can receive the dental work you need and deserve.
My smile is missing teeth. What do you suggest I do?
You'll need to first schedule a consultation with Dr. Nelson. He can assess your oral health and discuss options for replacement teeth. In general, you can choose from crown and bridgework, partial or full dentures, or dental implants. As the most natural prosthetic to natural tooth structure, a dental implant offers the most long-lasting, comfortable, natural-looking choice.
How does Dr. Nelson keep up-to-date on current techniques, technology, and materials in dentistry?
Dr. Nelson and our team take more than the state's requirement for continuing education each year. We also read trade journals, attend professional association meetings, and do everything we can to keep in tune with the latest developments in general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry, as well as dental technology. Because we are passionate about our careers, we enjoy learning new information on our profession, and then sharing it with you!
Do you accept dental insurance?
Our practice files as an out-of-network provider. As a courtesy, we will file claims electronically and accept assignment of benefits. Please call our Lutz dental office with any questions.
What payment methods do you accept, and what are your financing options?
For your convenience, we accept cash, check, and most major credit cards. Third-party financing is available through CareCredit for qualified applicants.
