Frequently Asked Questions

Pursuing the dental care you need can be an overwhelming prospect at times, and many patients struggle with questions and concerns. Thankfully, the team at Windermere Center for Dentistry has the answers! Please check out our FAQs below, and if you still don’t find the information you’re looking for, don’t hesitate to give our office a call today.

How often should I be visiting the dentist?

Generally, we recommend that patients schedule a checkup and cleaning with our team every six months on average, or twice per calendar year. This allows us to help you keep your teeth strong, healthy, and free of problems that could be developing out of sight.

Can you improve the way my smile looks?

Of course! Dr. Rapport offers a wide variety of cosmetic services that are designed to help your teeth shine and your self-confidence flourish, and she’d be happy to help you devise the perfect smile makeover for your personal goals. Teeth whitening, gum recontouring, Invisalign, veneers, and many more options are available!

What kinds of dental problems can veneers correct?

Porcelain veneers are designed to cover the front surfaces of teeth, which means they can hide stains, discoloration, chips, cracks, small gaps, misaligned tooth structure, and more all at once. Many patients even use them to alter the length, size, or shape of certain teeth to create a more beautiful, uniform appearance for themselves.

What’s the best way to replace missing teeth?

Dr. Rapport typically recommends dental implants as the method with the most benefits, such as lifelike aesthetics, and impressive longevity. However, implants aren’t the right choice for every patient. That’s why several options are available here, including dentures and dental bridges. We’ll be happy to help you determine the one that matches your needs and preferences best.

What exactly is a root canal?

While they may have a “scary” reputation, a root canal is actually a highly successful and transformative service that can rescue badly damaged/decayed teeth from needing to be extracted from the mouth. During this procedure, Dr. Rapport removes diseased pulp from within the tooth and rebuilds its strength and shape so that it can serve the patient well for many more years to come.

Do you see dental emergencies?

Yes! Don’t hesitate to contact Windermere Center for Dentistry today if you’re in need of urgent care. Dr. Rapport will make time for you as soon as she possibly can.

Will you take my dental insurance?

Most likely! Our practice is in-network for a majority of PPO insurance plans, and our team is well-versed in the art of filling claims and maximizing benefits. If you need more information, please visit our new patients page or contact us directly.
