Q) What should I expect during my first visit to Flower Mound Family Dentistry?
A) During your first visit to Flower Mound Family Dentistry, you can expect a thorough examination, a gentle touch, and an attentive dentist and team dedicated to communicating with you through every step of the process. We will examine your teeth and gums for any signs of decay or infection, provide an oral cancer examination, check your jaw alignment, and discuss any cosmetic issues you have to determine your smile goals. We will then discuss treatment options with you should we detect any problems.
Q) When do you recommend a child should begin seeing a dentist?
A) At Flower Mound Family Dentistry, we love to see children! We find that most children are best equipped to handle their first appointment around 18 months. Why so early? Even though your child only has temporary primary teeth at this age, they are essential for the proper development of his or her permanent secondary teeth, and our dentists would like to begin monitoring your child’s dental development early.
Q) Does your office accept dental insurance?
A) The broad answer to this question is yes. We do accept most PPO plans. To find out whether or not we accept your dental insurance, just give us a call. Our experienced team members will gladly help you find out more information.
Q) Does your office provide any kind of financing?
A) We don’t want cost to ever stand in the way of your oral health, and that’s why we offer you a number of ways to pay for the care you receive at Flower Mound Family Dentistry. One way that you can pay is by using CareCredit, a third-party financing option that can provide you with no interest and long-term financing plans when applicable. We also accept American Express, MasterCard, Discover, and Visa for your convenience.
Q) What cosmetic dentistry options are available at your dental office?
A) Our dentists take pride in their ability to transform smiles with cosmetic dentistry. They will first evaluate your smile to make sure it’s healthy – problems such as gum disease can really threaten your smile’s appearance. Then, they will find out what bothers you about your smile and keeps you from feeling confident. Together, you and your dentist will create a treatment plan that addresses your cosmetic issues, and this could include dental bonding, porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, crowns, or dental implants.
Q) How do I find out if I qualify for Invisalign® treatment?
A) Invisalign® clear braces are custom designed to correct teeth misalignment. Before we determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign®, you will need to have a consultation with Dr. Amin. She can evaluate your alignment and go over your options. The good news is that your Invisalign® consultation is complimentary and includes 3D scan and pictures!
Q) I’ve been told I snore; how can the dentist help treat sleep apnea/snoring?
A) Sleep apnea/snoring physically occur in the mouth and throat, so having detailed, working knowledge of these areas of the body is essential to effectively treating these issues. A dentist like Dr. Amin is extremely familiar with these, and she has taken advanced training dedicated to providing custom-made sleep appliances for her patients. Thanks to this, she can confidently treat patients dealing with obstructive sleep apnea and chronic snoring so they can rest easy.
Q) I have stained/discolored teeth, what is the best way to brighten my smile?
A) While you can find plenty of whitening treatments at the store, none are more effective than the professional-strength ZOOM! Whitening treatment we use here at Flower Mound Family Dentistry. In a single appointment, we can make your teeth six to eight shades brighter in about an hour. As you relax with movie or TV show from Netflix, we use a specially formulated bleaching agent and UV LED light to enhance your smile without weakening the enamel of your teeth.
