Frequently Asked Questions

How often do I need to come in for a checkup and cleanings?

At Amazing Smiles, we recommend that adults and children with generally good oral health visit for a routine checkup and cleaning every six months, or twice a year. If we discover troubling evidence of periodontal (gum) disease or extreme sensitive to tooth decay, our team may recommend more frequent appointments so that we can help you maintain a healthy, happy smile over time more diligently.

Do you see children?

Yes! We enjoy being able to provide a dental healthcare home for the entire family, including little smiles that are still in the process of growing. Dr. Narita recommends that children start attending their own dental checkups when they’re around the age of four years old. During this visit, we’ll always prioritize your son or daughter’s safety and comfort, providing gentle examinations, cleanings, and other helpful children’s dentistry services like fluoride treatment and dental sealants.

How can I improve the way my smile looks?

Amazing Smiles offers a wide array of cosmetic dentistry services that can transform your aesthetic appearance and self-confidence for the better, including teeth whitening, metal-free restorations, porcelain veneers, Invisalign, and much more. Dr. Narita will be happy to help you devise the ideal smile makeover plan during your initial consultation.

Why are dental implants the best choice for replacing missing teeth?

Dental implants are the only reconstructive solution available today that’s designed to replace the entire structure of the natural tooth (including both the root and the crown), which results in improved oral health and a more natural, long-lasting look and feel that’s superior to more traditional options. However, dental implants aren’t the right choice for every patient. During a consultation, Dr. Narita can review these options with you in greater detail and help you select the one that best fits your personal needs, budget, and level of time commitment.

Do my wisdom teeth have to be removed?

Not necessarily. If wisdom teeth grow in completely, line up well with other teeth, and can be cleaned properly by the patient, there’s no reason they can’t stay in place. However, the lack of available space typically results in damage to surrounding teeth, partial or full impaction, increased risk of infection, and other serious problems. Our Amazing Smiles team will closely monitor the development of wisdom teeth and recommend extraction if your overall oral health is in danger. Our patients’ safety and wellbeing is always a top priority!

Do you see dental emergencies?

Yes! We’ll do our best to welcome emergency cases into the office on the same day as your initial call. Dr. Narita’s goal is to provide patients suffering from oral pain or injury with the relief they need as soon as possible.

Do you accept my insurance?

We are in-network providers for multiple insurance plans (Aetna, Humana, and BlueCross BlueShield), and our team will also file paperwork for virtually all major PPO providers. To learn more about your financial options at Amazing Smiles, please visit our new patients page.
