FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions At Total Dental Care of South Carolina

Q: Is cosmetic dentistry worth it?
A:

Yes! You deserve to feel great about your smile, and if cosmetic dentistry can help you achieve that, it’s worth the investment. Not only can cosmetic dental treatments improve the appearance of unattractive, unhealthy teeth, but they can also lead to life-changing benefits that often come with a bright, beautiful smile. You’ll have the confidence to pursue the life you want!

Q: Does Insurance Cover Cosmetic Dentistry?
A:

In general, cosmetic dentistry is not covered by dental insurance. We can help you check your individual plan to find out exactly what is and is not covered under your policy. To make your care more accessible, we offer third-party financing through CareCredit. We’ll help you as much as we can to get the care you want and need.

Q: What is the best way to replace a missing tooth?
A:

Losing a natural tooth can be very detrimental to your smile. It is important that you replace the missing tooth with a secure and fully functional restoration like a dental bridge or dental implant. We prefer implants because they tend to last longer and do not require a loss of healthy tooth enamel like a bridge would. Visit us soon for an evaluation, and we’ll help you decide how to best restore your smile.

Q: Do You Offer Orthodontics for Adults?
A:

Yes, we do! We have two orthodontic options that work great for many adult smiles. ClearCorrect aligners straighten teeth without any metal hardware. The clear plastic aligners gently move your teeth into place. Six Month Smiles blend more easily into your smile than traditional braces and work a lot faster too.
