Can you treat dental emergencies?

We encourage all patients experiencing a dental emergency to call our dental office right away. Whether you’re dealing with a toothache, a broken or knocked-out tooth, or a lost/damaged restoration, we want to help you get out of discomfort and put on the path towards positive oral health. We’ll do everything we can to get you seen the same day the emergency occurs.

Can you help me treat jaw pain?

Our dental office provides oral splints in order to reduce the pressure put on the jaw joints. These customized oral appliances work to relieve tension on the jaw, ensuring that you reduce any and all symptoms. If you need additional help treating your jaw disorder, we’re happy to partner you with a trusted specialist in the area.

Do you see kids?

We’re happy to see all members of your family, including your young son or daughter. If they have more specific needs, we’re happy to partner them with a trusted pediatric dentist in the area as well. Our many services, including silver diamine fluoride and dental sealants, are sure to make you feel confident about your child’s visits at Ideal Smiles Dental Care.

How can I enhance my smile?

Dr. Lily is not only an expert in cosmetic dentistry, but she is a member of the Academy of Aesthetic and Cosmetic Dentistry. Her porcelain veneers, teeth whitening treatments, and Invisalign clear aligners are perfect for resolving a variety of dental imperfections all under one roof. If you have multiple issues you’d like to address, her smile makeovers are the perfect solution!

Can you restore my damaged teeth?

We offer multiple solutions for restoring teeth. Whether you need tooth-colored fillings, crowns or tooth replacement options like dental bridges or dentures, you can get it done at our dental office. We utilize digital impression technology in order to better capture your mouth for restoration design and fabrication. If you’re looking for crowns, bridges or a denture to cover implants, we’re happy to provide restorations for this purpose as well.

How often should I visit for a checkup?

For most patients, we recommend visiting our dental office once every six months for a checkup and cleaning. While this is the average number of visits you should be making, you may need to visit more often if you are currently undergoing periodontal treatment or Invisalign, both of which require more frequent appointments. When your child reaches the age of one or their first tooth has erupted, we ask that you bring them in for a brief exam so our dentists can confirm the status of their oral health.
