Treatment costs can vary depending on the individual treatment you receive, and we will discuss the fees and payment options with you before at your consultation. If you need assistance or have any questions about your insurance plans or claims, our staff is knowledgeable and always available to help you. To make certain that our records remain up-to-date, we request our patients to bring their dental insurance information with them to their appointments.
For your convenience we accept Cash, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover, as well as many dental insurance plans. We are contracted with Delta Dental PPO and Premier plans, as well as Blue Cross Blue Shield Dental Blue Plan. Other insurance plans may be accepted as long as the patient can see an out of network provider.
Patients will need to pay any deductibles and co-payments at the time of the appointment. Payments can be made with cash, check, or credit card. If your insurance provider denies payment, or has not paid your account in full within 45 days, the balance of your account will then become your responsibility to pay within 15 days.
Please be aware that your insurance program may consider some, and perhaps all, of the services provided as 'non-covered' services and not considered 'reasonable and necessary'. Regardless of the insurance company’s decision on coverage, you are required to pay the full amount charged by our office.
All insurance companies, with their numerous plans, vary on what services they will or will not cover, and we are happy to submit claims for our patients.
Think of dental implants as artificial tooth roots, similar in shape to screws. When dental implants are placed in your jawbone, they bond with your natural bone. They become a sturdy base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called crowns.
A connector – known as an abutment – is placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support your crowns. The crowns are custom-made to match your natural teeth and fit your mouth.
There are many teeth whitening systems and products including whitening toothpastes, over-the-counter gels, rinses, strips, trays, and whitening products obtained from a dentist.
Teeth whitening is ideal for people who have healthy, unrestored teeth (no fillings) and gums. Individuals with yellow tones to their teeth respond best.
