How often should I see the dentist?

For the average healthy person, they should attend at least one checkup and cleaning appointment every six months. This is often enough that it will enable our team to treat any minor decay or damage during its earliest stages, and routine cleanings can go a long way in stopping cavities and gum disease from developing in the first place.

Can I bring my children to Dentistry By Brand?

Of course! Whether you have a toddler, a teenager, or someone in between, any growing smiles you might have at home are always welcome through our doors. Our team has plenty of experience with children of all ages, and we’re ready to provide the friendly and comprehensive dental care they need to enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles.

What is the best way to whiten my teeth?

While you’ll find plenty of kits at the store and do-it-yourself solutions online, the safest and most reliable way to brighten your teeth is with professional teeth whitening provided by a dentist. Here, our team uses products much stronger than anything you can buy on your own, plus they are proven to be safe and not damage the enamel. With our custom-made take-home kits, you can actually whiten your teeth whenever and wherever you want to make them six to eight shades brighter in just two weeks!

One of my teeth really hurts. What should I do?

If you’re experiencing any kind of dental pain, the best thing to do is call Dentistry By Brand as soon as you can. It could be a sign of a much more serious problem, but if you come to see us right away, we’ll be able to take care of it.

Why do my gums bleed every time I clean my teeth?

Have you recently started flossing? If so, a little oral bleeding is completely normal. However, it could be a sign that you’re brushing or flossing too hard, so try cleaning your teeth more gently for a few days and see if this helps. If the bleeding persists, you may actually have a minor oral infection called gum disease. Thankfully, at this early stage, it is relatively easy to treat by our team, so make sure you give us a call and schedule an appointment as soon as you can.

Will you accept my insurance?

Yes! Dentistry By Brand happily accepts the majority of PPO dental insurance plans, and our knowledgeable team will make sure you consistently maximize your benefits with us. To learn more about how we can use your specific plan to help you save at your next visit, contact us today.

Is there a way to save on my dental care that doesn’t involve insurance?

Yes! With our In-House Savings Plan, one low fee instantly gives you access to completely covered services for the entire year as well as a big discount on all other recommended treatments. Basically, it provides similar benefits to a traditional insurance plan, but for a fraction of the price and without the red tape. To learn more about our plan and how you can sign up, click here.
