We want your first visit to Elite Dental to be as convenient and hassle-free as possible, which is why we have provided answers to some of the most frequently asked questions. You are welcome to learn more about our dental office today by reviewing the information below:
What types of financial and insurance options do you offer?
We strive to keep our dental care affordable for all patients by accepting all PPO insurance plans. For patients who plan to pay out of pocket, we offer an in-house insurance plan and third-party financing, such as CareCredit. We also accept cash, check, and credit card.
Do you cater to children?
Yes! We invite kids as young as 3 to visit our dentists for oral checkups. Our office features a fun and interactive Kidz Korner to keep children occupied and help them to enjoy their visits to the dentist.
Is teeth bleaching safe?
Professional whitening is fully safe and does not damage the dental structure. Some patients may experience tooth sensitivity, but this should wear off after treatment is completed.
Is there an easy way to repair my chipped tooth?
Most minor injuries can be repaired in a single visit at Elite Dental. Depending on the size of the chip, our dentists may recommend dental bonding or a dental inlay or onlay. We invite you to contact our office for an evaluation.
What causes bad breath?
The most common causes of bad breath are morning time, potent food, and poor oral hygiene. However, chronic bad breath may be a symptom of a medical condition or periodontal disease. Please visit our office if your bad breath cannot be treated with oral care products.
Why do I need a crown instead of a large filling?
If a dental filling is not sufficient to repair a large cavity or break in the tooth, Drs. Braithwaite and Braithwaite may provide a custom dental crown to protect and restore the damaged tooth. We offer same-day crowns so that you do not have to wait to repair your smile.
Can you provide care for my entire family?
We are a family practice that welcomes children, teens, adults, and seniors, and we offer a wide range of services to address all your dental needs. You are welcome to contact our office to learn how we can care for your family’s smiles.
We hope this information has been informative. Please do not hesitate to contact our dental office if you have further questions or would like to schedule an appointment with our caring dentists in American Fork, Utah. We look forward to hearing from you!
