Dr. Singh and her team will gladly address any and all of your concerns, whether they be in-person or over the phone. Of course, we also encourage you to review our most commonly asked questions below as well as our detailed answers for your convenience.
How often should I be visiting for routine exams and cleanings?
We recommend visiting our office at least once every six months for a routine exam and cleaning. This ensures that we can not only examine the effectiveness of your at-home oral care, but prevent any underlying dental issues from becoming serious problems later.
Should I choose dental implants to replace teeth?
While there are multiple ways to replace teeth, there are few solutions as effective as dental implants. This is because of their ability to bond with existing bone and soft tissue. With that said, you’ll need to complete a consultation to confirm your eligibility to receive them ahead of treatment.
What is the best way to enhance my smile?
It truly depends on your specific smile concerns. For example, those looking to remove stains may consider in-office and take-home whitening, while those with more substantial imperfections may find porcelain veneers to be more ideal. Dr. Singh will gladly go over all of her office’s options in greater detail so you can receive a personalized smile makeover.
Do I need braces to straighten my teeth?
Not necessarily. It depends on the severity of your orthodontic issues. For example, while many mild to moderate instances of misalignment, crowding, and gapped teeth can be resolved with Invisalign, more severe issues may be require traditional braces. The best way to confirm your needs is through a dedicated consultation.
Can you restore my teeth without metal?
Our restorations are fabricated from natural-looking, durable, and highly personalized dental porcelain. This allows us to restore damaged teeth, whether it’s with a dental filling or crown, all without having to rely on silver amalgam or other materials that could easily reflect in your smile.
Can I visit for a dental emergency?
In the event that you’re experiencing tooth pain, a broken or knocked-out tooth, or another dental emergency, don’t hesitate to call us. Additionally, our office offers same-day crowns and sedation dentistry if necessary to manage your dental emergency.
Do you see children?

I feel nervous about my visit. Can you help?
