Frequently Asked Dental Questions
Dentistry is a big subject, and many of our patients understandably have questions about what to expect from certain services and the best ways to achieve their desired smile goals. For added convenience, we’ve taken the time to compile some of the frequently asked dental questions we receive below. If you don’t see what you’re looking for on this page, contact MDRN Dental – Dr. Stapleton or a member of our team will be happy to discuss your question with you directly!
Do you see dental emergencies?
Absolutely! We understand how difficult it can be to grapple with a severe dental injury and/or pain while still trying to keep up with work, errands, and familial responsibilities. Dr. Stapleton will do everything in his power to accommodate you ASAP, and most emergency appointments can even be scheduled on the same day as your initial call.
Is there a way to straighten my smile that doesn’t involve metal braces?
We’ve got good news for you. At MDRN Dental, our team offers Invisalign® Clear Braces, which features a clear aligner treatment system instead of those tired wires and brackets. Each aligner is nicely subtle, comfortable to wear, and 100% removable. You’ll be able to gradually fix gaps and alignment problems while maintaining the confident appearance you deserve!
I’m missing teeth. What’s the best way to replace them?
Every patient’s circumstances are different, which is why the best way to figure out your ideal tooth replacement solution is to attend a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Stapleton here in West Houston. That said, our top recommendation for outstanding reconstructive results is dental implants, which provide comprehensive health benefits, seamless aesthetic value, and an unbeatable, decades-long lifespan.
Will I need to see a separate specialist for dental implant placement?
Not at all! Dr. Stapleton has undergone an extensive amount of advanced training in oral surgery, particularly the insertion of implants into the jawbone. Our dental office even features a revolutionary CB/CT scanner for painstakingly precise diagnostics and confident treatment planning. Our patients at MDRN Dental feel much more comfortable knowing that every stage of their smile transformation will be handled by the same dentist and team.
Can you help me improve the way my smile looks?
Absolutely. Our extensive menu of service features several treatments that are specifically designed to elevate your smile’s cosmetic appeal, from porcelain veneers to aesthetic gum recontouring to metal-free restorations. During an initial appointment, Dr. Stapleton will be happy to discuss all of your image-based goals and put together an individualized smile makeover plan.
Is professional teeth whitening really better than those kits from the store?
Yes – no question! MDRN Dental offers top-tier whitening brands that are proven to dramatically lighten tooth enamel in a much faster timeframe. Better yet, when you become a new patient here in the Westchase District, you’ll receive a professional take-home kit for free so you can experience the smile-inducing difference firsthand.
