Frequently Asked Dental Questions – Henderson, NV

If You’ve Got Questions About Your Smile, We Have the Answers!

At Dental Excellence: Dr. Brett Noorda, we want all of our patients to feel confident and comfortable in the care they receive, which is why we’re happy to answer any questions or concerns that you may have about dentistry. Below, we’ve listed some of the most common ones that we get asked. If you don’t see yours, feel free to call us!

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

Dental implants are a good solution for almost anyone who wants to replace missing teeth or secure a loose denture. Ideal candidates have good oral and overall health and enough jawbone mass to support implants. Smoking, however, can hinder implant success, and certain chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, slow the healing process. At your implant dentistry consultation, Dr. Brett Noorda will evaluate your needs, assess your current level of oral health, and help you determine if implants are right for you. Call today and let's find out.

Do you accept my dental insurance?

Yes, we accept any dental insurance that allows you to go to the dentist of your choice. Regardless of what your insurance plan is, we will happily help you maximize your benefits. We regularly bill hundreds of insurance plans, so we’re great at helping you get the most out of your investment in coverage.

We also have many patients who choose to come to Dr. Brett Noorda regardless of their insurance plan because he is so affordable, gentle, and does quality work that lasts.

What if I don't have dental insurance?

Because many people in our community are just like you, we provide options. First, be reassured that we are a fantastic choice when it comes to dental care, because we provide quality dentistry that lasts at very competitive rates. In our dental office, we also don't charge for follow-up care, because we believe in old-fashioned personal service.

If you know you need care (or are just looking for a great dentist) but are worried you won't be able to afford treatment, consider these options:

  • Financing: We offer short- and long-term financing through dental financing companies.
  • Smile Protection Savings Program: We offer an in-office membership program that includes free routine care and gives discounts for nearly every other treatment--with no monthly premiums or waiting period.

The most important thing to consider is making the visit, so you can find out what you really need to have treated now, and what can wait. If you keep up with preventive care, you can not only avoid other health issues that may arise, but you will also be looking at saving time and money by avoiding more expensive or extensive treatment caused by waiting until things get worse.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Yes. Dentist-administered teeth whitening is one of the safest dental procedures available. We offer two ways to whiten: in our Henderson dental office with Zoom! and in the privacy of your home with take-home teeth whitening kits. Schedule a teeth whitening appointment today and discover how you can achieve your whitest smile!

Can you straighten my crooked front teeth without braces?

Dr. Brett Noorda may suggest veneers or ClearCorrect to address misalignment. Veneers cover teeth to transform flaws in shape, size, color, and positioning. We also offer a variety of short-term orthodontic treatments. Call today to schedule an appointment.

Dental visits scare me. Can Dr. Brett Noorda help?
