Frequently Asked Dentistry Questions

If you ever want to know something about taking care of you or your family’s teeth, feel free to give us a call and ask anytime. To make things nice and easy, we’ve also compiled answers to some of the most popular questions we receive below.

How often should I visit the dentist?

For the average healthy patient with no ongoing dental issues, they should plan to visit the dentist at least twice a year for a checkup and cleaning appointment. This enables our team to keep a close eye on your oral health and address any issues as early as possible, plus professional cleanings can prevent the onset of many minor issues as well.

Can I bring my children to Cornerstone Dental?

Yes! We’ve been taking care of entire families in Fargo since 2005, so any growing smiles you have at home are always welcome through our doors. Our team has experience working with children of all ages, so we’ll ensure that your little (or not so little) one always has a comfortable visit while we provide any kind of service they need.

What is the best way to replace my missing teeth?

The only way for you to get a definitive answer to this question is to come see us for a consultation, but in most cases, our first recommendation is dental implants. They are the only treatment available today that actually restores an entire tooth both above and below the gum line, and they are able to last for decades on end as well.

I think I have a cavity. How long will it take to get it fixed?

At our dental office, just one appointment! Whether you’re in need of a filling or a full dental crown, we’ll be able to repair your tooth in record time. Tooth-colored fillings are relatively easy to place, and thanks to our in-house CEREC technology, we can design, make, and place a high-quality crown while you wait (most other dental offices take at least two appointments to do this).

Is there a way I can straighten my teeth that doesn’t involve metal braces?

Yes! We actually offer two orthodontic solutions that are proven to fix crooked teeth and misaligned bites, and neither of them is traditional braces. SureSmile uses a series of clear plastic aligners to discreetly shift the teeth, while Six Month Smiles is able to deliver dramatic results in record time. Getting a straighter smile has never been easier, and you can learn more about your options by calling us today.

Do you accept emergency patients?

Yes. We are happy to accommodate patients in need of urgent dental care into our schedule so that no one has to be stuck with pain. If you have a dental emergency, just give us a call, and we’ll work to see you as quickly as possible.

Will you accept my insurance?

Cornerstone Dental is ready to help patients maximize their PPO dental insurance benefits regardless of their provider. Just give us a call, and our Financial Coordinator Nicole will let you know how she can use your plan to help you save at your next visit.
