Older silver, metallic fillings are a thing of the past. Today’s standard and best practice is to fill a tooth with a composite material (often called white or tooth-colored fillings). Our family dentistry has many colors so we can match your teeth perfectly. This advanced material is completely safe and where a patient has decay or a chip, the dentist uses it to fill the tooth. The composite material is cured with a special light. After your tooth is filled, you can eat and drink as soon as you want since the material is cured instantly. Ask us about using composites for your next filling.
Finding a Charlotte dental office you can trust can seem to be a laborious task. “Are they just trying to upsell me?”, “ How do I know that I really need this treatment?”. These are just some of the questions you may ask yourself after visiting a dental office for the first time. At Park Crossing Dentistry you become family. The care we provide comes from a desire to elevate as well as maintain our patients’ dental health. Our conservative approach to dentistry creates trust and that trust creates the basis for a long-term relationship. Our dentists often say, “if this was my mother, brother or family member, this is the treatment I would do….”.
Is it spring yet? We are here cleaning, drilling and filling even in the snowy cold.
We have time blocks blended into our schedule to see emergencies every week. If you have an emergency, we usually can see you the same day. Also, if you have a friend who wants to become a new patient, we have blocks of time set aside to see new patients quickly. Ask our office for a block appointment if you have an emergency or referral.
Many times we are asked about payment plans with our office. We do offer payment plans on larger cases and many times use third parties such as Care Credit and/or Springstone, who offer no interest payment plans. If a patient has a long-term history with us and/or may qualify, we can offer an in-house payment plan. Payment plans are a good way to pay for necessary dental work. Ask Dayna, our treatment coordinator, about payment plans and how to finance your dental work.
