How often should I visit the dentist?
For the average person with no outstanding dental problems, our doctors recommend that they should visit their dentist at least twice a year for a checkup and cleaning. This is one of the easiest ways to keep your smile looking and feeling great as well as prevent the most common dental issues (including tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, etc.).
Do you accept child patients?
We sure do! Fairfax Dental Group is ready and able to treat every member of your family, including the youngest and cutest ones! We have just the right combination of specialized treatments and a gentle touch to ensure that your child always has an enjoyable and fulfilling dental experience.
What is the best way to make my teeth whiter?
While there are literally tons of whitening products available on store shelves, the only way to really achieve dramatic results and keep your teeth healthy is by using a professional whitening treatment from your dentist. We offer both in-office and take-home whitening methods that will make your teeth up to eight shades brighter without causing sensitivity!
Are metal braces the only way I can straighten my teeth?
Not anymore! With Invisalign, we can use crystal-clear plastic aligner trays to straighten your teeth in the most subtle and comfortable way possible. The trays are practically invisible to the naked eye, and you can even take them off when it’s time to eat or brush your teeth!
What is causing my toothache?
There are actually many different things that can lead to dental pain, and unfortunately, some of them can be quite serious! If you’ve been dealing with a persistent toothache, be sure to contact us right away so we can provide the relief you need!
