Frequently Asked Dentistry Questions

When you’re searching for a new dental home, many questions can come to mind. Does this dental office offer everything you and your family need? Well, at Lifetime Dental of Gainesville, we want to answer some frequently asked dentistry questions for you right here. Please take a few minutes to review our responses. If you have other concerns that we don’t address here, don’t hesitate to contact our Gainesville dental office. We welcome the opportunity to help in whatever way we can.

Why should I visit Lifetime Dental of Gainesville twice every year for a checkup and cleaning?

We recommend a dental visit with our team every six months because oral problems can develop very quickly, and this appointment is an opportunity for us to make sure your smile stays healthy. Dr. Her will conduct a thorough exam and identify any signs of trouble—even at its earliest stages, helping you avoid pain and more intensive treatments down the road. We’ll also remove hardened plaque from your teeth, preventing bacteria from causing decay or infection. If it has been a while since you have had a checkup and cleaning, call Lifetime Dental of Gainesville today!

Does Dr. Shue Her place dental implants?

Dr. Her has the advanced training and experience to handle every stage of the dental implants process, including placement and restoration. From beginning to end, he can make sure that your dental implants are successful by using precise technology and techniques, such as our CT cone beam scanner for planning placement and digital impression system for a perfect restoration. Are you ready to get started with dental implants? Contact our dental office and schedule your consultation with Dr. Her today.

What dental surgical procedures can Dr. Her perform?

At Lifetime Dental of Gainesville, we are proud to offer so many services right here under one roof. Because of his extensive education and training, Dr. Her can perform many advanced procedures, including dental implant placement, bone grafting, tooth extractions, the Chao Pinhole Technique for periodontal therapy, and more. When you entrust Dr. Her with your smile, you can rest assured that you’ll receive the best care possible.

How long does it take to place dental crowns?

Traditional crowns require two appointments: one for taking the impressions and one for placing the restoration. But with the CEREC technology that we use at Lifetime Dental of Gainesville, we can design, mill, and place your custom crown in under an hour. In just one visit, you can have your smile completely restored after damage from decay or injury.

What sedation methods do you use to help anxious patients?

We know that dental anxiety or fear can be a very real and overwhelming problem. That’s why we make every effort to put our patients at ease. In addition to Dr. Her’s personable chairside manner, our team offers sedation dentistry to help patients relax. Depending on your needs and the complexity of the procedure, we can provide either oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide sedation. If you suffer from dental anxiety, let us know before your appointment so that we can make the necessary accommodations to ensure that your experience is as stress free as possible.

I want to brighten my smile. What are my cosmetic options?

At Lifetime Dental of Gainesville, we offer several solutions that can improve the look of your smile. To remove surface stains, you can choose to have either in-office Zoom! or at-home Venus Peal whitening. Both are professional-grade treatments that can whiten teeth by as many eight shades. If your teeth have other imperfections in addition to discoloration, you may want to consider porcelain veneers or direct bonding, which can correct multiple flaws simultaneously. The best way to know which treatment will best meet your needs is to have a consultation with Dr. Her, so call our dental office and schedule one today!

Do you accept my dental insurance plan?

Lifetime Dental of Gainesville accepts most PPO dental insurance plans and is in-network with several, helping you save money on your dental care. Even if we are out-of-network with your insurance, our team will gladly submit claims for you and help you maximize your benefits to lower your out-of-pocket costs. To find out if we accept your specific dental insurance plan, contact our Gainesville dental office.
