Frequently Asked Dental Questions

When you choose a dental office to call home for you and your loved ones, you want to make sure it will meet your needs and give you the kind of service that will keep your smile healthy and happy. How can you know that before you come in? Well, our team at Kingwood Family Dentistry has provided the answers to several common questions that patients have asked. We hope it helps you see that we can be a good fit for you and your family. If you have other questions that aren’t listed below, we invite you to contact us!

My gums bleed after I brush. Is this something to be concerned about?

Bleeding in any part of your body indicates a problem. When gums bleed, the cause usually stems from brushing too hard or from early-stage gum disease, called gingivitis. When you come in, we will talk with you about the proper toothbrush and techniques for safe, effective daily care. If your gums show signs of gum disease, Dr. Mosby may recommend periodontal treatment to stop the disease and return your gums to good health. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss for American adults, and it has been connected to many overall health conditions. Without treatment, gum disease can escalate to create significant damage to your health, so call our Kingwood dental office for an assessment now.

My teeth are stained. Can you help?

Professional teeth whitening can brighten teeth dramatically. We use the Zoom! and Sapphire in-office teeth whitening systems, which can lighten teeth in about an hour. If you prefer, we can also provide take-home trays so you can whiten teeth on your own timetable. Contact us for a consultation today!

I have old, dark fillings. Is there any hope for my smile?

Thanks to modern dentistry, Dr. Mosby can replace dark fillings and metal crowns with strong, aesthetic solutions. Our dental office has placed tooth-colored fillings for years, and we also offer porcelain crowns. You can enjoy a healthy, attractive smile, so contact our dental office to make an appointment.

What can I do about missing teeth?

If missing teeth are hindering your smile, consider dentures or dental implants. Dentures provide you with removable prosthetic teeth. Dental implants are designed as a permanent replacement for one or more missing teeth. To learn more about these options, contact our dental office in Kingwood to schedule a private consultation with Dr. Mosby.

Do you accept insurance?

Dental care can get expensive, so we work to maximize insurance as much as possible. Some dental policies cover only a small percentage of fees, while others cover more. Generally speaking, dental insurance covers some restorative dentistry and general dentistry procedures, but cosmetic dentistry treatment is not usually covered. If you have any questions or need any additional information to file your claims, contact our Kingwood dental office.

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept cash, check, and major credit cards as payment for your balance. We can also help you apply for CareCredit in order to pay for treatment.
