New Patients General & Family Dentistry FAQs

Why do I have to go to the dentist every 6 months?

It’s important to go Dr. Crawford’s office twice a year so we can make sure your oral health is intact. Our deep cleanings remove plaque and calculus that toothbrushes just can’t reach, and our general dentistry staff can get a better glimpse of any future problems with tooth decay and cavities.

What should I do if I have a toothache?

For a persistent toothache, you should come by our Dallas, North Carolina office. Constant toothaches are often a sign of infection, because the nerve in your tooth is sending a signal that something’s wrong. Dr. Crawford will examine the problem area to see if you need a root canal, which she also performs in-office.

I have a chip in my tooth; is there anything that I can do to fix it?

Yes! We regularly perform dental bonding to correct damage in your enamel. A natural-colored porcelain resin is used to fill in areas where decay or trauma has occurred, and it can even be used to smooth over a crack in your tooth.

My teeth appear crooked, but I don’t need braces. How can I change their appearance?

Dr. Crawford fits patients for porcelain veneers, which are used to cover teeth that are stained, damaged, chipped, and can even give a straight look to the structure. Your veneers are customized to match your natural smile, and can improve your image and self-confidence!

Do over-the-counter teeth whitening treatments really work?

Maybe, but the results don’t last, and they usually do more harm than good to your enamel. Dr. Crawford has Opalescence Boost to whiten your teeth, and the actual procedure can be performed in under an hour.
