Q.

How do the doctors keep up to date on current techniques, technology, and materials in dentistry?

A.

Our dentists – and our team – take more than the state’s requirement for continuing education each year. We also teach and attend professional association meetings to do everything we can to keep in tune with the latest developments in general and cosmetic dentistry. We are passionate about dentistry, so we enjoy learning and sharing it with you!


Q.

I want to know more about changing my smile. What do you suggest?

A.

An appointment. Your smile and your goals are unique. We offer a wide range of cosmetic and family services. After a consultation with Dr. McRay or Dr. Robbins, you’ll know which services will deliver the results you desire.


Q.

How can I improve my smile?

A.

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 teeth. After your comprehensive evaluation and consultation, we’ll present a smile makeover plan for your new smile. We offer digital imaging for smile previews, as well.


Q.

My teeth are stained. Can you help?

A.

Yes. We offer whitening solutions to brighten teeth dramatically at home or in our office.  Call our dental office in Houston for an appointment today!


Q.

I have old, dark fillings and see cracks in my teeth. Can I replace?

A.

Dark fillings and metal crowns can be replaced with strong, aesthetic solutions. Our dentists have placed composite resin fillings for years, and we also offer porcelain crowns. We are a “metal-free” practice with many aesthetic solutions to fit your needs.


Q.

What are my options to replace missing teeth?

A.

Following a thorough consultation, we will assess your needs and determine the best option for you to replace missing teeth. Often, dental implants are the most preferable and predictable solution. We offer crown and bridge treatments, full and partial dentures as well. Learn more about these services on our services menu, and then call us for a consultation.


Q.

Do you accept insurance?

A.

We do accept most insurance PPO plans, and we will gladly file your claim for you always! Please call our Houston dental office with any questions, and remember to bring your insurance card with you. Please plan to pay your co-pay or deductible portion at the time of service.


Q.

What payment methods do you accept, and what are your financing options?

A.

For your convenience, we accept cash, check, and credit cards. Third party financing is available through CareCredit and Lending Club for qualified applicants.
