Payments and Insurance

Our Payment Options

For your convenience we have multiple payment options available, accepting Cash, Check, Visa, Mastercard, Discover and CareCredit.

CareCredit is the healthcare credit card exclusively designed to finance healthcare services like dental care and orthodontics for you or your family. CareCredit offers special financing on purchases of $200 or more for healthcare procedures not commonly covered by insurance, including dental treatments. Plus, you can use your CareCredit card over and over for follow-up appointments.*

Insurance Benefits and Their Limitations

At Dazzling Dentistry our priority is making sure that you receive the highest level of dental care within a budget that you are comfortable with. To do otherwise would violate our commitment to you - a commitment we feel morally obliged to honor. We will outline all of your treatment options in phases, if necessary, and present all treatment fees in full detail. We will assess your dental insurance benefits, process and electronically file all insurance claims as a courtesy for you. We are committed to working with all of our patients to ensure that they are reimbursed to the max by their dental insurance, with reimbursement being sent directly to you. Please be aware that any remaining balance following the insurance payment is your responsibility as we are not "in network" for any dental benefits providers except Delta Dental Premier Plan.

Dental insurance benefits have not been increased for decades and usually have small limits that will not cover work beyond the scope of periodontal maintence and occasional cavity control. Most dental work easily exceeds these small limitations. But you can be confident that we, at Dazzling Dentistry, will always provide you with our best services without regard to the limitations imposed by your insurance coverage.

*Subject to credit approval. Minimum monthly payments required. Visit www.carecredit.com for details.

  • In some cases, short term sensitivity may be experienced when tooth comes in contact with hot and cold or discomfort while biting down. If those symptoms don't go away within 24-48 hours, please contact the office.
  • During the procedure there was no nerve exposure but there is always a possibility of the need for root canal treatment.
  • During the root canal treatment until the tooth is fully restored, biting on the tooth should be avoided, especially gum and hard or sticky food.

  • Please avoid biting on the side of treated tooth/teeth, avoid chewing gum and eating hard food or food with seeds that can become lodged under the temporary crown (nuts, popcorn).
  • Teeth should be brushed at least 2 x day but please be gentle when flossing or using picks around treated teeth, do not pull floss up, gently pull one side out through the side.
  • If the temporary crown falls out please contact our office.
  • Please consider that we try our best to ensure ideal fit of the prostatic appliance, if it doesn't fit correctly, we will send it back to the lab, what may elongate the process.
In order to keep optimal durability of the restoration, good oral hygiene habits are necessary. Please remember of:
  • Brushing and flossing teeth (including the restoration) at least twice a day but ideally after each meal. For this purpose, it's recommended to use a toothbrush, preferably an electric one, floss, interproximal brushes, floss picks, SUPERFLOSS or water irrigators. Proper oral hygiene will prevent secondary decay. Teeth that are involved with restorations are most susceptible to decay.
  • Recare visits are essential, at least every 6 months in order to examine restorations, other teeth in the mouth, oral cavity, to remove plaque, tartar build up and for diagnosis of any risks associated with your smile.
Light sensitivity may be expected after the treatment. Please follow our instructions:
  • Eating on the other side of treated teeth or waiting for numbness to resolve.
  • Delicate and detailed brushing teeth at least 2 x day, preferably with electric toothbrush, as directed by the dental hygienist.
  • Using recommended interproximal brushes or floss at least once a day and medicated rinse twice a day for 30 seconds and abstaining from eating and drinking for 30 minutes after.
  • If the entire deep cleaning treatment was not completed it is very important to schedule remaining visits as close to each other as possible to prevent bacterial spread to the clean site in your mouth.
  • Coming in for the 3 month recare visits during which we will remove bacterial plaque and tartar build-up from areas inaccessible for the patient. Gum (periodontal) disease can be controlled only with regular 3 month visits to prevent tooth loss!
  • Bite on the gauze for 20 minutes, if bleeding is still present after removal; please place new gauze in the site of extraction.
  • Ice pack can be placed on the cheek by the area of removed tooth to minimalize swelling. Please place it on for 10 minutes and take it off for 10 minutes for a total of one hour.

  • Please avoid drinking hot liquids and eating hot food on the day of treatment. Yogurt, ice cream and shakes are recommended.
  • In case of pain, pain killers can be taken.
  • Smoking is not allowed for 24 hours; it can lead to a "dry socket" (an infection of the wound).
  • The wound should not be touched, please refrain from using a straw and spitting after rinsing (just allow water or rinse to flow out) in order to preserve blood cloth that forms on the wound to protect underlying bone and nerves.
  • Proper oral hygiene should be practiced after the extraction.
  • In case of strong, long lasting bleeding please contact the office or your doctor.
  • Only everyday use can protect teeth from grinding. If the appliance is not used every night, it may eventually not fit due to rotation of teeth.
  • Appliance should be rinsed or soaked in hot water before inserting it in the moth.

  • Due to loss of tooth structure, to cover the cusps of the tooth in the best and least invasive way, overlay restoration was placed. In case of fracture, a crown might be recommended.

Frequently Asked Questions

The brand of the toothbrush is not as critical as the type of bristle and the size of the head. A soft toothbrush with a small head is recommended because medium and hard brushes tend to cause irritation and contribute to recession of the gums, and a small head allows you to get around each tooth more completely and is less likely to injure your gums. It's unnecessary to "scrub" the teeth as long as you are brushing at least twice a day and visiting your dentist at least twice a year for cleanings.
Generally, no. However, it's advisable to use a fluoride containing toothpaste to decrease the incidence of dental decay. We recommend our patients use what tastes good to them as long as it contains fluoride.
Flossing of the teeth once per day helps to prevent cavities from forming between the teeth where your toothbrush can't reach. Flossing also helps to keep your gums healthy.
Both bridges and partial dentures replace missing teeth. A bridge is permanently attached to abutment teeth or, in some cases, implants. A partial denture is attached by clasps to the teeth and is easily removed by the patient. Patients are usually more satisfied with bridges than with partial dentures.
No. While most teeth that have had root canal treatments do need crowns to strengthen the teeth and to return the teeth to normal form and function, not every tooth needing a crown also needs to have a root canal.
Physician-supervised teeth whitening systems such as Zoom!® and BriteSmile® are widely considered to provide the safest cosmetic dentistry treatments. Teeth whitening is a conservative method for completely making over your smile.
Dental sealants are a plastic coating painted on the grooved, hard-to-reach surfaces of the back teeth. Pits and fissures on these surfaces are particularly susceptible to tooth decay. Dental sealants can be used to seal out cavity-causing bacteria from damaging the teeth.
Because fluoride is effective in preventing decay from forming on the smooth surfaces of teeth, and dental sealants protect the grooves of teeth, these treatments are best used in conjunction.
Dental sealants are particularly effective for protecting children's teeth. The first permanent molars emerge when a child is about 6. A dental sealant treatment performed shortly after these first permanent teeth emerge protects the teeth from developing cavities. Another good time for applying sealants occurs when a child is about 12, when the second permanent molars emerge.
We may also recommend sealants for adults who are at a particularly high risk of tooth decay.
Following a few simple guidelines can help keep your child's teeth strong and beautiful for life:

Start oral care early
Oral care should start soon after your child is born. After feeding, clean your child's gums using gauze or a clean, damp cloth. As soon as your child's teeth appear - as soon as four months after birth - they should be brushed. Each day, brush your child's teeth with a soft, wet toothbrush and a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste.

Prevent nursing-bottle mouth
Nursing-bottle mouth, also known as baby-bottle tooth decay or baby-bottle syndrome, can cause a baby's front teeth to rapidly decay, which can lead to a lifetime of dental difficulties. Preventing nursing bottle mouth is easy: If you give your baby a bottle at nap or bedtime, simply fill it with plain water rather than formula, milk, or juice - never let your child fall asleep with a bottle filled with a liquid other than water. In addition, check your child for brown spots near the gums because they are a warning sign for tooth decay.

Take advantage of dental sealants
Dental sealants are a popular and effective way to protect your child's teeth against cavities.
Gum disease has several stages. The initial stage is called gingivitis and is an infection of the gingiva (gum tissue). In this stage, gums become red, swollen, and prone to bleeding. The underlying bone is unaffected. In later stages, however, gum disease can lead to bone loss and the loosening or even loss of teeth.
Gum disease treatment varies according to the stage of the disease. At its mildest stages, gingivitis can be treated by clearing plaque and tartar deposits from the gum pockets. Severe gum disease, on the other hand, might require treatment that includes bone and gum grafts.
Pain from sensitive teeth often comes and goes, but if you experience constant pain, you may have a more serious problem.
There are many effective treatments for sensitive teeth, including:
  • A soft-bristle toothbrush to prevent gum irritation
  • Toothpaste designed to insulate the nerve that registers pain
  • A fluoride rinse or gel
If you have sensitive teeth, visit Dazzling Dentistry to discuss your symptoms. We can help determine the cause of your pain and develop a course of treatment.
If periodontal disease is caught at an early stage (when it has not progressed beyond the point of gingivitis), it can be treated with scaling and root planing (removing plaque around the tooth and smoothing the roots' surfaces). If the disease progresses to a later stage, the patient may need surgical treatment, which involves cutting the gums, eliminating the hardened plaque build-up, and repairing the damaged bone.
Gingivitis is the inflammation of the gums around the roots of the teeth. It marks the early stages of periodontal disease, and it is characterized by red, swollen gums.
Anyone who is in danger of developing impacted wisdom teeth (third molars that only partially erupt or get trapped or stuck in the jaw) should have them removed so that they do not damage adjacent molars and cause other oral problems. In addition, anyone who is getting dentures should have their wisdom teeth removed.
Tooth decay and periodontal disease are the most common causes of tooth loss. Tooth decay takes place when most of the tooth's mineral makeup has been dissolved away and a hold (cavity) has formed. While tooth decay primarily affects children, periodontal disease, or gum disease, affects mostly adults. Periodontal disease is an infection of the gums caused by the buildup of plaque, and it's earliest stage is known as gingivitis.
Most dental professionals recommend that you brush your teeth at least twice a day. Brushing after every meal (and flossing at least once a day) is also a good way to maintain dental health.
A child should have his first dental appointment no later than his third birthday. Many dentists recommend a child have his first appointment when his first tooth comes in.
Tobacco (cigarettes, pipes, cigars, chewing tobacco, and snuff) is the most common cause of oral cancer. Combining tobacco use with heavy drinking can also foster the development of oral cancer. Bad hygiene, prolonged irritation of the oral cavity, and extended exposure to strong sunlight on the lips are among other causes of the disease. Many dentists believe vitamins A and E can help prevent the acquisition of oral cancer.
