FAQs


How can I improve my smile?

That sounds like an easy question to answer, but it isn't! Your smile is unique, and we won't compromise your individuality with smile enhancements. Smile design dentistry done right requires an initial consultation in which we will discuss your goals, preferences, and options for care. Generally speaking, we may suggest porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, all-white restorations, and/or replacement of teeth. You should schedule a smile makeover consultation with Dr. Le.

My smile is missing teeth. What do you suggest I do?

You'll need to first schedule a consultation with Dr. Le. She can assess your oral health and discuss options for replacement teeth. In general, you can choose from bridgework, partial or full dentures, or dental implants. As the most natural prosthetic to natural tooth structure, a dental implant offers a comfortable, natural-looking, easy-to-care-for choice.

I have a temporary crown in my mouth. What should I do if it comes off or breaks?

First, call our Los Altos dental office. If the office is closed, simply use a dab of toothpaste to reattach the temporary, then visit us for a replacement when the office opens. You can also find dental adhesive in your local drug store, if you prefer not to use toothpaste. If pain is involved, we do have a 24 hour emergency phone number on the recording.

Does my insurance cover that?

Dental insurance is diverse. Some policies cover only a small percentage of fees, while others cover 50 percent or greater. The more you or your employer pays for premiums, the better the coverage, in most cases. For the most part, dental insurance covers some restorative and preventive procedures. Cosmetic treatment is not usually covered. We accept CapitalOne Healthcare Finance and CapitalOne Healthcare Finance to make cosmetic dentistry affordable for all of his patients. If you have questions, give us a call. We'll be happy to tell you what your insurance will cover.
