Dental Implants

Are implants covered by insurance?

In most cases, yes. Dental insurance will usually cover a portion of your implant treatment cost, depending on your plan. Our friendly team is here to help you and will answer any questions you may have about your insurance, deductible, and all treatment costs.

How much do dental implants cost?

The full cost of your dental implant procedure will depend on your overall treatment needs, such as the extent of restoration required to complete your smile. Our team strives to provide our implant dentistry services at fair and affordable prices. 

Do you offer sedation?

We offer laughing gas to patients undergoing a variety of treatments and procedures. We also offer oral conscious sedation for lengthier or more complex procedures.

What if I don’t get an implant?

If you’ve lost one or more teeth due to trauma, disease, or decay, it’s important to replace those teeth as soon as you can. Missing teeth can impact your oral health as well as your overall physical well-being, causing problems biting, chewing, and eating properly. You also have a greater chance of developing gum disease, TMJ, crooked teeth, and other issues if you go without replacing your missing teeth.

Do implants hurt?

You will require a minor surgical procedure to place the implants in your jaw. Following your procedure, it’s normal to experience some pain and swelling while your mouth heals. Our team will provide you with detailed postoperative instructions and prescribed pain relievers (as needed) to help you manage any discomfort you may experience.


What is the difference between Invisalign and braces?

Unlike traditional braces that require you to make multiple trips to the office for adjustments, Invisalign involves checkups every four to six weeks to get your new set of aligners. Not only is this treatment more convenient, but it can also be much faster. Invisalign is also removable and requires no brackets, wires, or elastic bands to shift your teeth, making it a more comfortable treatment option.

Can teens get Invisalign?

Yes, Invisalign is designed to help both adults and teens. Invisalign can even be used for young children in some cases, depending on their treatment needs and the recommendation of their dentist or orthodontist.

Is Invisalign expensive?

Not at all! Invisalign is an affordable treatment option. In many cases, the cost of Invisalign treatment is comparable to metal braces. That means you can enjoy discreet, comfortable orthodontic treatment without impacting your budget. If you still need assistance covering the cost of your Invisalign clear aligners, we offer affordable financing through CareCredit.

Is Invisalign covered by insurance?

For most patients, yes. Invisalign is covered by many major dental insurance plans, which will cover the cost of treatment in part. We’ll verify your benefits during your visit so you understand all out-of-pocket costs.

How long does Invisalign take?

Treatment times depend on your unique case and overall orthodontic needs. In most cases, patients can expect to wear their clear aligners for 1-2 weeks at a time, for 20-22 hours each day. Patients typically use Invisalign for 12-18 months before achieving their desired results.


How long do veneers last?

We use porcelain for its strength, durability, and natural appearance. You can expect your veneers to keep you smiling for 10-15 years, but you can extend the lifespan of your veneers by practicing good dental hygiene at home.

Do veneers hurt?

Veneers are generally an easy, painless procedure. Dr. Tse will remove an ultra-thin layer of enamel from your teeth to prepare them to receive the veneers, but this shouldn’t cause you any discomfort. Our team will administer local anesthesia as needed to numb the area so you won’t feel anything.

How long does it take to get veneers?

You can expect to make 2-3 visits over the course of your treatment, from the initial consultation to receiving your final veneers.
