My gums bleed after I brush. Is this something to be concerned about?
Bleeding gums can indicate gingivitis and possibly advanced gum disease. Our hygienist can educate you on effective flossing and brushing techniques, but you need to make an appointment for a thorough evaluation. Gum disease can lead to tooth loss, gum recession, and serious overall health risks, so don't ignore the warning signs. Call our Flemington dental office to schedule your oral hygiene appointment today.
I brush every day, but my breath just is not fresh. Is there anything I can do?
In your checkup, we can look for the cause of your bad breath, also known as halitosis. Some patients suffer from bad breath caused by tooth decay, gum disease, or a smelly substance put off by bacteria. With modern procedures and products to promote fresh breath, our team can help you regain your confidence!
I grind my teeth at night and snore. Is there anything you can do to help me?
Certainly! We have many patients who suffer from this complaint. We recommend nightguards, a comfortable, easy-to-use appliance that you wear while you’re sleeping. This guard keeps back teeth from touching and holds open your airways allowing for better flow. Many patients find their problems go away, even on the first night of use!
Is teeth whitening safe?
Absolutely. We bet you didn't know that teeth whitening, in some form, has been around since the 1700s. Modern whitening uses safe and effective bleaching gel to melt away stains and discoloration. Choose from Zoom! Whitening in our Flemington dental office or convenient take-home teeth-whitening kits.
How long will my teeth whitening treatment last?
Normally, teeth whitening lasts five to seven years. Drinking dark beverages, smoking, or consuming alcohol can reduce this time. Ask Dr. Leyferman for hints on maintaining your teeth’s brilliance.
Crowns, veneers, onlays, inlays, and partials…Where can I learn more about these procedures?
Our patient library is a great resource for learning about dental procedures. You can also review our services pages for more information. If you have questions about these or other dental procedures, don't hesitate to call our Flemington dental office. We would be happy to explain any aspect of your dental care or our service offerings.
What are my options to replace missing teeth?
We offer bridgework, partials, full dentures, and dental implant restorations to replace missing teeth. Learn more about these services in our patient library, then call for a consultation. With X-rays, intraoral photos, and a thorough assessment of your dentition, Dr. Leyferman can help you decide which replacement option will be best for you.
How do you use smile analysis and design to improve the appearance of my smile?
Well, we like to start by evaluating your oral health, existing smile, and discussing your idea of a spectacular smile. As an experienced cosmetic dentist, Dr. Leyferman may suggest porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, replacement teeth, and replacing metal dental work with aesthetic restorations. Or your smile may benefit from some artistic bonding and reshaping or Zoom! Whitening. Call to schedule a free cosmetic consultation with Dr. Leyferman, and together, we'll determine the best road to your ideal smile.
Will you see my kids and my grandparents?
Yes! We love families and see many of them. Our services are diverse, so we offer dentures for our older patients, as well as sealants for our youngest patients. Call to schedule comprehensive initial exams for everyone in your family – because their smiles are invaluable family assets!
What payment methods do you accept and what are my financing options?
Paying for your dental work should not be stressful! We offer hassle-free, convenient payment methods including check, cash, or credit cards. We also accept third-party financing.
I avoid dental visits because of anxiety…is this normal? Can you help?
Many people fear dental visits because of negative past experiences or control issues. We understand dental anxiety and offer solutions to help you overcome your stress. Our friendly, compassionate team will see to your complete comfort, offering you personalized music selections, DVDs, and warm blankets. For the truly fearful, we offer oral conscious sedation, which can help you gain full peace of mind and body so that you can receive the dental work you need – and deserve.
