  • How can I have a whiter smile?

    Over the counter whitening systems are often not enough to whiten our smiles. At Vista Smiles, we have various choices that are stronger and more effective than what you can buy OTC. The first is an in-office treatment called Zoom! Whitening in which you can see immediate results when you leave our office, and improvement after that. Another method is having custom trays made to place on your teeth with a strong solution that will take away stains. Either system will show dramatic results.

  • What do I do if I have a dental emergency?

    The most common dental emergencies are a broken tooth or crown, an abscess or infection. To ease the pain, apply ice every 15-20 minutes and take acetaminophen (Tylenol). Do not take ibuprofen (Advil) or aspirin because they are anti-coagulants and could cause excessive bleeding. Call our office and we will work you in during the day. If we are closed, call first thing in the morning and we will schedule the earliest appointment possible for you.

    If your emergency is life threatening with other symptoms besides pain, call 911 or go to the emergency room.

  • How does good oral health affect my lifestyle?

    Your mouth is a gateway to the rest of your body. By maintaining clean teeth and gums through regular cleaning and addressing tooth decay with fillings and other tooth repair, you will eliminate bacteria and the potential for illness. Studies have shown that periodontal (tooth gum) health is linked to poor cardiovascular health, increased risk of stroke, diabetes, problem pregnancies, respiratory diseases, and osteoporosis in women.

    Start with the basics by brushing and rinsing your mouth and teeth at least twice a day, flossing daily and have regular dental check-ups on a bi-annual basis. Then, branch out to incorporate a healthy diet, exercise, fresh air, and sufficient uninterrupted rest. Eliminate unhealthy habits, and remember, taking care of your teeth can benefit your whole body.

  • How can you straighten my teeth?

    Vista Smiles offers several ways to straighten your teeth through orthodontics. The first way is with traditional braces using bands around the teeth with wires connecting them. Various “looks” are placed on the teeth with colored or clear rubber bands, and the bands themselves. For invisible teeth straightening, we offer Invisalign, a method of wearing an invisible, clear aligner that is removed for eating and teeth brushing. One more method, a six-month teeth straightening, is also available. Please contact us for further information on straightening your teeth. You’re never too old for orthodontics!

  • Do you accept my insurance?

    Yes, we are contracted and in-network with most PPO insurance. However, we do not work with HMO’s. The type of insurance you have can usually be found on your insurance card.

  • Do you have a hygienist?

    Yes, we have a full-time licensed dental hygienist.

  • Do you treat children?

    Yes, we treat children of all ages. More often than not we wait until the child is 18 months to 2 years old to see them for their first dental visit.

  • Will I see the same dentist?

    Yes, Dr. Fox is the only dentist in the office and he will be taking care of any dental needs you may have.
