Frequently Asked Dental Questions – Oklahoma City, OK

Our Team is Happy to Help Anytime

Dentistry can be very straightforward or quite complicated depending on your needs. Whether you’ve been visiting us for years or making your first appointment today, there’s no question we haven’t heard before. While the answers to some of the most common questions we’ve received can be found below, that doesn’t mean you have to keep your concerns to yourself. Let us know if you’d like to learn more about our dental office, team or the many dental services we provide!

Do you treat children?

Our dental office is happy to see patients of all ages, from seniors to very young children. After all, kids are just as vulnerable as adults to conditions like tooth decay and gum disease. Working closely with you, we want to help your son or daughter enjoy good oral health.

How often should my family visit Dr. Mitchell?

We recommend that patients visit Mitchell Smile Design in Oklahoma City at least twice a year for checkups and cleanings. These routine appointments are important because they give us a chance to look for common problems while they’re still developing. We want to treat these issues as early as possible, because that way we can make smaller changes to your smile.

How can I have a whiter smile?

Dr. Mitchell has several options for helping patients brighten the appearance of teeth. Both in-office and at-home teeth whitening can produce a more vibrant and attractive smile. Meanwhile, porcelain veneers can produce results that are both whiter and straighter-looking.

What is a smile makeover?

A smile makeover combines multiple cosmetic services into a single treatment plan. The goal of using multiple services is to provide patients with more comprehensive results while focusing on your unique treatment goals.

Are dental implants right for me?

If you’re missing one or more teeth, you may be a great candidate for dental implants. This restorative service can be combined with everything from a single crown to a partial or full denture, with results that mimic nature’s own design. Not everyone with missing teeth is a perfect candidate, though. Let Dr. Mitchell talk to you about your treatment options during a special consultation appointment.
