Answers

Will the Miller Dental Arts doctors care for my entire family?

Absolutely! Our dentists and team love children and count it a privilege to help young people learn how to care for their teeth and gums. Establishing a healthy homecare routine and respect for professional dental care at a young age will go a long way toward helping your children retain optimal oral health throughout life. We understand that your family is busy, so upon request, our front office team will schedule visits for you and your children on the same day.

How do the dentists replace missing teeth?

The option that most closely mimics nature’s design is dental implants. Our implantologist, Dr. Paul S. Miller, places and restores dental implants for our patients. Implants can anchor individual crowns or multiple-tooth prosthetics, including bridgework, partials, and dentures. If your bone density is insufficient for traditional implant therapy, your dentist may recommend MDI – Mini Dental Implants. This one-visit procedure is particularly helpful in anchoring loose, slipping dentures. With proper care, implants can last a lifetime.

What is a cosmetic dentist?

Cosmetic dentistry is not a recognized dental specialty by the American Dental Association. Any general dentist can claim to be a cosmetic dentist. As a consumer and patient, you should review before-and-after cases and sit down for a personal consultation with a dentist prior to accepting a treatment plan. The Miller Dental Arts doctors have undergone extensive training in cosmetic dentistry procedures. They focus on beauty, function, and longevity in all smile designs. If you’re considering cosmetic dentistry, or if you’d like to improve the appearance of your smile, schedule a smile consultation with Dr. Paul S. Miller, Dr. Bradley S. Miller, or Dr. Sungmin Lee.

Are porcelain crowns durable?

Porcelain crowns are created in a dental lab from fine dental porcelain that has proven extremely durable for front teeth. The further back teeth are in your mouth, the more pressure they endure when you bite and chew. Your dentist will explain his findings, as well as your treatment options. He’ll guide you to make an informed decision about the best type of crown for your situation.

How do I know if I have gum disease?

In many cases, patients notice tender, swollen, or red gums – or bleeding when they brush their teeth. These symptoms can indicate gum disease. However, some patients show no noticeable symptoms. The best way to determine if you have gum disease is through professional periodontal evaluation by one of our dentists. If evidence of gum disease exists, he or she will recommend prompt, effective, conservative treatment to eliminate bacterial infection and restore optimal periodontal health.
