Please bring your insurance card with you to each appointment so that we can check for any changes in your benefits. Your insurance is a contract between you and your employer, so plan to keep up with any updated information and let us know of any changes.

At Grand Dental Arts, we never want any of our patients to turn away from an opportunity to get a new, healthy smile because of the cost standing in their way.

Our team will also make things easier by processing your insurance claim for you when we receive your co-payment.
Patient Asked Questions
A cavity that is left untreated will continue to grow. When a cavity is small, it can easily be treated with a tooth-colored filling. If the decay spreads, it will mean that more of the tooth structure has to be removed and treatment options may become more complex. You may require a crown or a root canal. Extraction is even a possibility if the tooth has so much decay it cannot be restored.
If you are grinding your teeth, a bite guard might be the answer. This simple device protects the teeth from grinding against each other. It fits between your upper and lower teeth. We can make a custom bite guard that will fit you securely and comfortably. The bite guard is worn at night. Patients generally sleep better and wake up with no headache or jaw pain.
We use the Zoom whitening system, which is a safe bleaching process that whitens both the enamel and dentin of your teeth. After just one treatment, you will immediately have a smile that is several shades lighter. We recommend you combine this in-office procedure with our take-home bleaching trays for even more dramatic results.
If you don’t replace your toothbrush, the bristles will get frayed and bent out of place. When that happens, those bristles won’t be able to get into those tough to reach places to clear away bacteria and food particles that are stuck in between your teeth or under your gum line. To prevent this, it’s recommended that you replace your brush every 3 to 4 months at least. If you notice that your brush is looking frayed before you hit that 3 or 4 month mark, it may be recommended that you replace your brush sooner.
