Frequently asked questions
How do I know when I should come in for a check-up?
We recommend that you visit our Dallas office twice a year (or once every six months) if your oral health is in good standing. However, Dr. Willison and our team may strongly suggest more frequent appointments depending on the current state of your smile and if you’re suffering from periodontal disease. In some cases, 3-4 appointments a year could be needed to maintain gum health. We’ll be sure to discuss this with you following your first visit so that our team can create a care plan that fits your needs.
My gums bleed when I brush. What does this mean?
This is a common sign of periodontal disease, a potentially serious condition that could lead to oral damage if left untreated for too long. It could also be an indication of leaky fillings. No matter what the cause is, you should definitely pay our office a visit if you’re experiencing bleeding gums. Please contact our team as soon as possible to schedule an appointment.
Will I need to see a separate dentist to have my implants placed?
Not at all! Dr. Willison can take you through every step of the dental implants process right here at her Dallas office, saving you valuable time and ensuring your complete comfort as we transform your smile and oral health for the better.
How can I whiten my teeth in a safe way?
We offer several cosmetic options that can give you brighter teeth safety and effectively. These include in-office whitening, take-home whitening kits, and porcelain veneers. All of these treatment options offer valuable benefits to patients; we’ll be happy to discuss them with you in more detail at our Dallas dental office if you’re interested in pursuing a more beautiful smile.
What are my payment options?
For your convenience, we offer several possible financial choices when it comes to paying for your dental care, including cash, check, major credit cards, and financing through Care Credit. To learn more, please visit our new patients page.
