Frequently Asked Questions
Have a question? Want to know more about Beverly Farms Dental or dentistry in general? If so, then this is a great place to start! Below, you’ll find answers to some of the most common questions our team receives every day. If you still have a question after reading over this page, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. We’re always eager to talk to you and make sure you have all the information you need to take care of your smile.
How often should I go to the dentist?
We recommend that patients of all ages should attend at least two dental visits every year for a checkup and cleaning. These appointments give our team the chance to catch and treat dental issues before they can become serious, plus they can go a long way in preventing many issues from developing in the first place!
Will you see my child?
Yes! Beverly Farms Dental has a long history of serving entire families, including their youngest members. Many of our team members are parents themselves, so we’ll know exactly how to keep your child comfortable while we provide the services their growing smile needs.
My gums bleed every time I brush. Should I be worried?
If you’ve just recently started flossing, then it’s normal that your gums might bleed a little bit. However, if your gums tend to bleed every time you brush, try cleaning your teeth with a lighter touch and switch to a soft bristle brush. If your gums still continue to bleed after this, then you might have early-stage gum disease, in which case you should give us a call to schedule an appointment right away. The sooner we’re able to treat you, the easier it will be!
Do I have to get metal braces to straighten my crooked teeth?
Not anymore! With clear aligner systems like Invisalign and ClearCorrect, we can now help patients with crooked, crowded, and gapped teeth without using metal brackets and wires. These sleek and discreet treatments are nearly invisible to the naked eye, and they’re often able to straighten teeth much faster than regular braces as well. To learn more about them and if they could work for you, contact us today.
What is the best way to whiten my teeth?
While there are many whitening products available on store shelves today, the truth is that most of them are quite underpowered and unable to deliver noticeable results. If you’re looking to get rid of stubborn stains caused by coffee, wine, or tobacco, our professional-strength take-home whitening kit can do the trick. It’s much stronger than anything you can buy on your own, and it’s guaranteed to make your teeth 6-8 shades whiter after just two weeks!
What should I do if I think I have a cavity?
You won’t be able to take care of a cavity on your own, so the best thing to do is give Beverly Farms Dental a call right away. The sooner we’re able to treat a cavity, the easier it will be!
Will you accept my dental insurance?
Beverly Farms Dental is happy to accept almost all insurance plans and help patients maximize their benefits at every visit. To learn how we can use your particular plan to help you save, give our dental office a call today.
Can I finance my dental care?
Yes. If you would like to break up the cost of your dental care, you can sign up for a low-to-no interest payment plan with CareCredit right through our website. Simply click on the link on our Patient Information page to explore their different plans and choose one that works best for you.
