FAQ

  • Q. I don’t want anyone to know that I had my teeth done; I want my smile to look natural.

    A. Using the latest technology and the most supreme materials, the Dream Smile Dental cosmetic specialists take all factors into consideration when creating your perfect smile. The structuring of your smile is based on your lifestyle, facial proportions, gender, age, complexion, hair and eye color. Our patients are often asked if they've changed their hairstyle or got new contact lenses. Your smile will look so natural, no one will be able to pinpoint what exactly is different in your new look.

  • Q. How long will it take to get my new natural looking smile?

    A. Depending on what the Cosmetic Dentist decides is the best option for you, your new smile can be delivered in as little as 2-3 visits. The process of veneers or crowns is similar in that the doctor preps your teeth by taking an impression of your bite and adjusting the tooth structure slightly to assure an accurate fit for the final product. The impressions are then sent to one of the most advanced laboratories in Massachusetts for the creation of your new crowns or veneers. In the meantime, the dentist puts temporary crowns or veneers on your teeth and in the next visit, delivers the customized final product for your new, healthy and natural looking smile.

  • Q. How long will my temporaries last?

    A. Although the temporaries will make you look like you already have your new smile, they are not meant to last for longer than the dentist recommends. If left on too long, temporaries will ware, break and even damage your teeth. It is important to come back for you delivery appointment to receive the permanent crowns or veneers and leave with your strong, and beautiful new smile.

  • Q. Does Every crown procedure require a root canal ?

    A. Not necessarily. A crown may require a root canal only if the nerve of the tooth has been in some way compromised or damaged.

  • Q. Does every root canal procedure require a follow-up appointment?

    A. Yes. It is very important to restore a tooth that has had a root canal treatment because it is more vulnerable to external forces that may bring back the infection or cause the tooth to crack. It is best to consult your dentist as to what type of restorative appointment the root canal treatment will need.

  • Q. Will I be in pain during or after the root canal?

    A. You will be fully numb and not feel anything during the root canal treatment. After the treatment, it is rare that a patient is in pain, but in some extreme cases there may be some discomfort in which case your dentist will prescribe something for the pain.

  • Q. Is it ok to wait on a root canal treatment if I feel no pain?

    A. No. It is never ok to wait on any dental treatment, especially a root canal. If your dentist has told you that you require a root canal, it must be done as soon as possible in order to prevent from the infection spreading further and possibly causing a fatal situation.

  • Q. What procedures does insurance cover?

    A. Every insurance plan is differently set up and therefore cover various procedures according to their fee schedule. We work with most insurance plans and to find out what your plan specifically will cover in our office, it is best to call and speak to one of our account managers.

  • Q. Will a crown look like my own tooth?

    A. Yes. All-porcelain crowns are made of a white material that is identical to the color of your tooth. No one will even know that the tooth has a crown on it.

  • Q. What kind of questions should I ask when looking for a new dentist?

    A. Most people don't know that selecting the right dentist is a matter of looking for the right credentials. Since most of the advanced and high-tech dentistry is not taught in Dental Schools, it is important to make sure that the dentist you select is fully up to date and qualified to perform the newly innovated procedures. Both Dr. Ronkin and Dr. Shwartzman frequently attend The Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI, www.lvilive.com), where they are taught hands-on clinical procedures of the highest level allowing them to deliver the best patient-based care in the field. LVI is considered to be the Nordstrom of dentistry where patients can expect the 5-star service along with quality that will maintain healthy teeth and gums for a lifetime, so when looking for a new dentist, look for the LVI difference.

TESTIMONIALS

All of my life, the financial needs of my children and my business took precedence over my own personal desires. One of these was to improve the appearance of my smile. Once my children were grown and my business had sold, I decided that it was time to do something special just for me.

I was confident that my expectations would be met because of my positive experience with Dr. Ronkin. Honestly, when I first sat with Dr. Ronkin, my one and only fear was if it was going to be all worth it.

What our Patients are Saying

Front desk people were awesome as usual. Courtney the hygienist is always great too. Pushed me to go have something on my lip looked at which proved to be pre cancer that needs to be removed.

LZ 3-26-13

Dr. Barton was great with my son. He let him "play" with some of the instruments before actually using them so that made my son feel more comfortable. My son, at age three, loves going to the dentist and hopefully this will continue.

CC 11-7-12

Courtney Wager was excellent......she had a thorough understanding of my Son's needs. She also advised me to seek a total diagnosis with an ENT doctor. She was looking at the whole condition (tongue-thrust swallow) not just her speciality. Great experience over all!

RL 11-4-12

Ever since I have been coming to Dream Smile I have had nothing but great experiences. All the employees are very professional and cater to your every need, especially Nicole.

EDC 7-28-11

My visit, from start to the end, was great. When I do have the work done on my tooth, I would prefer the dentist that was on duty that day, as he took the time to explain things to me about the tooth. Also, special thanks to the girls behind the desk who were patient and extremely nice as my Delta Dental Plan was being determined.
