Use Your Dental Insurance This Year

Dental insurance is often a luxury today. In fact, about 40 percent of Americans do not have dental insurance. Many dental insurance policyholders receive two free dental cleanings and then discounts on restorative treatments like fillings or crowns. Dental insurance is great for people with mild to moderate dental needs. If you need a filling or crown, you won’t be surprised with a bill for the full cost of treatment.

But it’s important to know that dental insurance companies provide an annual allotment for your dental treatment. Once you reach that amount, your dental insurance dollars are finished for the year. On the other hand, the money you don’t use will not be rolled over to the next year. Your dental insurance company will pocket any of the remaining money.

Change Your Smile By This Time Next Year

As general dentists, our first priority is to make sure your smile is healthy. Additionally, we want to make sure your smile looks great. A great smile can improve your confidence in social and professional situations. We love helping our patients improve their smiles, whether it’s simple teeth whitening or orthodontics.

At Natural Smiles, we have two different types of whitening, in-office and at-home whitening. We can whiten your smile in the dental chair. Zoom can brighten your smile by several shades in about an hour. This system uses a powerful whitening gel that is activated by a special laser. You’ll just relax while the whitening treatment does all of the work. Our other whitening system, KöR, is rendered at home and in the office. The reason for this is because KöR is one of the most powerful whitening treatments on the market. It can improve the shade of your teeth by about 16 shades and erase even the heaviest dental stains.

Invisalign is a short-term orthodontic system that can be completed in about 12 to 18 months. Instead of fixed metal brackets or wires on your teeth, Invisalign uses a system of removable clear aligners to gradually move the teeth into a better position. Because the aligners are removable, you can easily clean your teeth and eat whatever you want. We’ve found that Invisalign is ideal for our adult patients who don’t want to deal with the hassle of metal braces. Those patients also love how Invisalign is virtually invisible. So, unlike braces, your treatment will not stand out.

Resolve Painful Jaw Problems  

This can be the year you resolve those nagging jaw problems. Millions of Americans wake up with a headache or nagging jaw problem because of habits like grinding or clenching. These two involuntarily habits can put a huge amount of pressure on your jaw joints (the temporomandibular joint) and muscles, causing them to inflame or constantly feel uncomfortable.

At Natural Smiles, we’re using a nightguard to treat those issues with jaw joints and muscles. The custom nightguard fits perfectly over your teeth prevents you from grinding and clenching your teeth while you sleep, which then relieves the pressure from your jaw. Our patients get used to the nightguard within a few nights and they notice the positive results almost immediately.
