Answering Your Questions
about Our Practice
Finding a new dental home for you and your family is an important decision. You want to make sure it will be a good fit for all of your needs, and that you’ll get the service and care you deserve. Our team at Vienna Smiles wants to make this choice easier, so below you’ll find our responses to some of the questions that we are asked most often. If you don’t find answers to your questions here, feel free to reach out to us, and we’ll address your concerns.
How often should I see the dentist?
Our team recommends that you come every six months for a dental check-up and cleaning. We’ll inspect your mouth for any problems and give you professional cleaning that will leave your smile feeling fresh. Other than daily at-home dental care, this regular visit is the most critical thing you can do for your lifelong oral health!
Do you place dental implants?
Yes, we do! Dr. Barakat and our experienced dentists have been highly trained and can expertly handle every step of the dental implants process right here at our Vienna office. And what’s more, our team will go above and beyond to make sure that you’re comfortable throughout the whole process.
Do you offer same-day crowns?
We have the technology to design and fabricate dental crowns right here in our Vienna office. These CEREC crowns are made from high-quality porcelain and are typically ready for placement in under an hour, saving you valuable time!
Should I get porcelain veneers or teeth whitening?
Each patient has unique needs, so we need to meet with you in person to discuss your treatment options. Although both treatments can address dull or yellow stains on your teeth, porcelain veneers can also resolve other issues, such as gaps, slightly misalignment, and chips. However, teeth whitening is more conservative. To determine which option is right for you, contact us and set an appointment.
Do I have to get traditional braces to fix my crooked teeth?
Not at all! At Vienna Smiles, we proudly offer subtle treatment with Invisalign clear aligners. These clear plastic trays quickly guide your teeth where they should go—all without any visually distracting metal. Could Invisalign be a good fit for you? Call us and schedule a consultation to find out!
My entire mouth needs to be restored. Can you help?
Absolutely! No matter how far gone your smile may seem now, our experts can provide solutions that will bring back your teeth basically to their former glory. We can combine dental implants and full dentures to give you a strong bite and a truly functional, confident smile. Just call us to get started!
How do you help me save on my dental care?
We offer multiple financial options that can make your dental care much more affordable. We accept most dental insurances, have our own in-house savings plan, and break up the cost into low monthly payments with a trusted third-party financier. Our team will be happy to review your financial options and make your dental care fit within your budget.
