Dental Crowns Q & A

Dental crowns are a versatile treatment with restorative and cosmetic applications. At James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we use crowns to strengthen teeth that are too damaged or weak for a filling and cover discolored, broken, cracked, or worn teeth. Crowns are strong, durable, and functional, but that’s not all. Since many people have never had a crown before, let’s answer some common questions about them to raise awareness about this tooth-saving treatment.

Out Of Network: What It Really Means & The Benefits For Patients

Did you know that a dentist who is out-of-network with your dental insurance provider can still give you the care you need? What’s more, an out-of-network dentist has unrestricted access to the highest-quality materials and the latest techniques to better serve your interests. That’s because an insurance company is not dictating what they can do for you. In other words, you shouldn’t discount our dental practice just because we are not an in-network provider with your dental insurance plan.

How You Can Benefit From Being Proactive With Your Oral Health

You may be surprised to learn that some people only go to the dentist when it’s an emergency. They do not get regular check-ups, cleanings, or X-rays and will wait until the pain is unbearable before seeking treatment. We recommend a much more proactive approach to oral healthcare because staying on top of your dental health has enormous advantages over waiting until it’s urgent. Please keep reading to learn more.

Enjoy A Pleasant Dental Experience

It’s common for people to joke about how much they dislike going to the dentist. We don’t take it personally, though, because we know that for many patients, it’s no laughing matter. For these patients, fear, anxiety, and past bad experiences are keeping them from getting needed care. That is why our entire staff makes a concerted effort to create the most welcoming, calming, and positive atmosphere possible for every patient. For those who may need a little extra assistance, we offer sedation. Sedation dentistry helps patients who would otherwise avoid the dentist get essential oral healthcare.
