My teeth are duller than they used to be. Is there anything that I can do to fix it?
After a careful evaluation from Dr. Khouly, you may qualify to have your teeth professionally whitened or restored with one of our cosmetic options. As long as your teeth do not display any signs of decay or periodontal disease, we should be able to use our in-office teeth whitening process to lighten the look of your smile. Check out our cosmetic services for other options.
I’ve just lost a tooth! What can I do?
For patients who have lost a single tooth or who are searching for a permanent way to replace multiple missing teeth, it’s strongly recommended to consider having a dental implant placed. This method imitates an entire tooth from the top down to the root and provides a level of stability comparable to a real tooth. To learn more about your options, contact Dr. Khouly today!
If I´ve broken a tooth, can you help me?
Yes! We can create and place a realistic-looking crown in one appointment! Just call us immediately after the accident and explain that you may need a crown.
What Can I Expect At My First Appointment?
We begin treating all of our patients by providing a thorough dental and periodontal examination and taking necessary x-rays. The doctor presents a treatment plan specified to your dental needs, and we make sure to answer all of your questions. The we will then see you to discuss your out-of-pocket expense, insurance reimbursement information, & our financing options available to you.
Why Do I need to come in every 6 months?
Many conditions are detected and treated before they can become unpleasant, time-consuming, costly, and potentially dangerous problems. Studies show that patients who see their hygienist on a scheduled basis are more likely to have healthier bone and gums, and to keep their teeth for significantly longer. Our team of professionals like to see those in our care at least every six months for a periodontal maintenance and annual checkup. This allows us to maintain your oral health and keep up-to-date on your dental needs.
Can we refer our friends & family?
A referral is the biggest compliment you can give us. For that reason, we always try to give you and them discounts.
My gums bleed when I brush. What does that mean?
Gingivitis and other forms of gum disease are present in almost three quarters of the American population, and it can lead to some pretty serious complications! As gum disease progresses, teeth can become loose and even fall out. Recent research has even shown an association between gum inflammation and cardiovascular disease, uncontrolled diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and pre-term births. To keep your smile intact, gum disease must have the proper treatment to stop bone loss from progressing, and in some cases, even regenerate lost bone and tissue. Most dentists recommend nonsurgical procedures to correct these problems whenever possible. Call us today to arrange your periodontal therapy appointment.
