FAQs

You Have Questions…We Have Answers

Will you care for my entire family?

Absolutely. We enjoy creating gorgeous, healthy smiles for patients of any age. If we find that your child – or you, for that matter – would benefit from seeing a specialist, we'll refer to a trusted colleague. Some children deal with dental appointments better at a pedodontist's office, that's what a children's dentist is called. We also refer patients who have extensive dental problems, like advanced periodontitis or problematic root canals, to specialists for optimal care. As a general dentist office, our preventive, restorative, prosthetic, and cosmetic dental services include treatments suitable for patients of all ages.

When do you like children to have a first dental visit?

We want to see your child when they have teeth! The ADA recommends children have their first dental visit 6 months following the eruption of their 1st tooth. Bring your child with you to your appointment so that he or she can become acclimated to the dental office. If you notice any development problems with your child's mouth or teeth, call McComb Family Dental to schedule a visit immediately. Otherwise, we'd like to begin teaching your children how to care for their teeth and gums at age 2 to help them develop healthy oral habits.

What is the best option to improve my smile?

That sounds like an easy question to answer, but it isn't! Your smile is unique, and we won't compromise your individuality with smile enhancements. Smile design dentistry done right requires an initial consultation in which we will discuss your goals, preferences, and options for care. Generally speaking, we may suggest porcelain veneers or Lumineers, teeth whitening, all-white restorations, replacement of missing teeth. Orthodontics like Invisalign clear braces may also be involved. After your comprehensive evaluation and consultation, we'll present a smile makeover plan for your new smile.

How can I safely whiten my teeth?

The ADA recommends dentist-supervised teeth whitening for superior results. The dentist will be able to assess your soft-tissues and tooth enamel to determine the best type of whitening in your unique situation. Your doctor may recommend in-office bleaching with Zoom! Whitening or take-home teeth whitening. Our professional-strength whitening solution contains hydrogen peroxide, which has been proven safe and effective in clinical studies, and fluoride, after which will help you strengthen your tooth enamel and lessen sensitivity. Call today and reserve your appointment to learn which option is right for you.

How can you straighten my smile without using metal braces?

Depending on your unique case, we may suggest porcelain veneers or Invisalign clear braces. Read more about these procedures in our cosmetic services area.

Does your office use lasers?

We use lasers for precise, comfortable dentistry. Our soft-tissue laser allows us to treat gum disease, perform crown lengthening, reduce gum tissue for esthetics, and do biopsies. You will not need stitches after laser surgery, and bleeding is minimal. Most patients recover more quickly after laser surgery than they do following traditional surgery.

Do you accept dental insurance?

We help patients maximize their insurance benefits. Our practice is in-network with Delta and Superior, and we will file with your out-of-network provider claims as well. As a courtesy, we will file claims electronically and accept assignment of benefits. Please call our office with any questions.

What payment methods do you accept, and what are your financing options?

For your convenience, we accept CareCredit, cash, check, and major credit cards, including American Express, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover.
