Frequently Asked Questions

Why are dental implants the best choice for tooth replacement?

Unlike traditional reconstructive options, dental implants are actually designed to replicate the entire natural structure of your tooth, including both the white crown and the root located under the gum tissue. With a new root in place, patients won’t have to worry about experiencing the gradual jawbone deterioration that’s so common when it comes to tooth loss, and their replacement tooth will be seamlessly lifelike, durable, and functional.

While Dr. Montgomery strongly recommends dental implants when patients have suffered the loss of one or more natural teeth, our team also understands that this option is not for everyone. We will review all of our available restorative services in full to help you make the best decision for your oral health and overall quality of life.

Can you improve the way my smile looks?

Of course! Several cosmetic dentistry services are available here at our Plano, TX practice, including teeth whitening, metal-free restorations, porcelain veneers, Invisalign, and more. Our goal is to help you devise the ideal smile makeover plan that gives you the aesthetic improvements you want and deserve.

I want a straighter smile, but I don’t want to wear traditional braces. Is there another option?

Yes. Our team understands this concern – metal wires and brackets aren’t the most polished look for an adult. That’s why Dr. Montgomery recommends Invisalign treatment as a much more aesthetically pleasing orthodontic alternative. Instead of the traditional braces model, patients wear clear, customized aligners that each represent a different stage of their smile as teeth are gradually shifted, allowing you to keep your treatment subtle and simple.

Do you see dental emergencies?

Yes! Please don’t hesitate to contact our Plano, TX location right away if you or a family member is struggling with a damaged tooth and/or severe oral pain. In fact, we offer one convenient price for an emergency appointment and digital X-rays – $49!

Is it true that a dentist can treat my sleep apnea?

If you currently suffer from mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea and are dissatisfied with traditional C-PAP treatment, a customized oral appliance from our Plano team may be able to provide you with the long-term relief and good night’s rest you need.

Visiting the dentist makes me nervous. Can you help?

Of course. Many people experience anxiety or even outright fear when faced with an impending appointment, which is why Dr. Montgomery has incorporated oral conscious sedation as a helpful aid for creating a calmer, more relaxed environment. Patients will be directed to take their prescription at a certain time before their visit, and they will need a trusted escort to bring them to and from the office. While under the effects, they will feel deeply comfortable and may not even remember their appointment once it’s completed.

Do you take insurance?

We do file claims for most major insurance plans in order to help our patients maximize their available benefits. Please visit our new patients page to learn more about our stance on insurance.
