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, looking at your existing smile, and discussing your goals for it. We may suggest porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, replacement teeth, or cosmetic bonding. Your smile may also benefit from Zoom! Teeth Whitening. 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.
My smile is crooked, but I don't want the immature look of braces. Is there a solution for me?
Absolutely! As a certified Invisalign dentist, Dr. Torabi offers a clear, removable alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign uses 3D imaging to design a custom set of aligners; then, the patient wears a new aligner every few weeks. For big events, simply remove the aligner. This less obvious orthodontia is popular with teens and adults. Make an appointment to learn which treatment will suit your lifestyle best.
What is the difference between veneers and Lumineers?
Lumineers are actually a brand of veneers that require minimal or no tooth preparation prior to placement. Some patients prefer Lumineers because of the quick application and reduced risk for sensitivity. However, others prefer traditional veneers because of their completely customized design.
How does the doctor keep up to date on current techniques, technology, and materials in dentistry?
Dr. Torabi – and our team – takes 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. We are passionate about our careers, so we enjoy soaking up new information about our profession and then sharing it with you!
Do you accept dental insurance?
Yes. We accept several insurance providers, including: Delta Dental, United Concordia/Tricare, Aetna PPO and Premier, Health Choice, and Dental Connection. We can also file your claim as an out-of-network provider. Please call our office and our friendly staff will check your policy’s level of coverage.
What payment methods do you accept, and what are your financing options?
We accept cash, checks, and credit cards. If you would like to finance your dental work, we can help! Visit our new patients page for more information.
