FAQ’s

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is oral treatment that improves health and beauty of one’s smile. Almost every dental procedure has two aspects: aesthetics and function. High-quality cosmetic dentists like Dr. Schepis take both of these elements into consideration; you can relax knowing your teeth will not only look great, but also offer lasting results and long-term benefits.

How do I know when I am due for a checkup?

We strive to ensure that you will always know what the steps are in your treatment. Dr. Schepis and our hygienists will help you understand what interval you must follow to maintain proper oral health. We will  schedule your next appointment before you leave the office. We will also mail a reminder card and a call when you’re due for your next visit. The ADA recommends that most people see a dentist three times each year.

Do I have to floss every day? Is it really that big of a deal?

Yes! Flossing daily helps to eliminate the bacteria that is around your teeth. This bacteria can get into your blood stream and cause heart disease. Not to mention flossing cleans your mouth and freshens your breath! Infections from bacteria in the mouth can begin in just a few days. Stay on top of your health and add years to your life by flossing regularly!
