Frequently Asked Questions

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.

What is the difference between veneers and Lumineers?

Lumineers are actually a brand of veneers that require minimal or no tooth preparation prior to placement. Some patients prefer Lumineers because of the quick application and reduced risk for sensitivity. However, others prefer traditional veneers because of their completely customized design. Schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Mosby to discuss which option works for you.

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 office.
