Answers to Your Questions

Don't see your questions answered here? Feel free to call our Altamonte Springs, FL dental office and speak to one of our team members. We'll be happy to give you the information you need.

What is a cosmetic dentist?

The American Dental Association does not recognize cosmetic dentistry as a specialty, so any general dentist can claim to be a cosmetic dentist. To choose a good cosmetic dentist, review the doctor's before-and-after photos of actual cases, ask about his or her postgraduate education in cosmetic dentistry, and make sure that you feel confident and comfortable in the office.

Does my insurance cover that?

Dental insurance is diverse. Some policies cover only a small percentage of fees, while others cover 50 percent or greater. The more you or your employer pays for premiums, the better the coverage, in most cases. For the most part, dental insurance covers some restorative and preventive procedures. Cosmetic treatment is not usually covered. Ask about one-year interest free financing with approved credit to make cosmetic dentistry more affordable. If you have questions, give us a call. We can give you an idea of what your insurance will cover.

How can I improve my smile?

The answer to this question is as diverse as our many cosmetic dentistry patients. At LC&Z, we don't believe in a one-size-fits-all solution. Such a thing just doesn't exist! Your smile, personality, needs, and lifestyle are unique to you, so we approach cosmetic enhancements with a personal consultation and custom treatment plan. Smile design done with care requires an understanding of a patient's individuality, so your doctor will thoroughly discuss your goals, preferences, and options for care. Generally speaking, we may suggest porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, all-white restorations, and/or replacement teeth. Invisalign clear aligners can provide straighter teeth without compromising your image during treatment. To find out what we recommend for your situation, call today to schedule a cosmetic dentistry visit with Dr. Lane, Dr. Curley, or Dr. Zak.

What kinds of safety precautions does your office take?

Your safety and comfort are very important to us. We ensure that our practice exceeds all ADA and CDC standards for cleanliness and safety. Every instrument is sterilized and wrapped before your visit, and we use quality, disposable products when possible. We've also invested in laser diagnostic tools as well as digital X-rays to ensure that all aspects of patient treatment are more conservative, safe, and comfortable. If you'd like to take a look around the LC&Z facilities ahead of your appointment, just set up a walkthrough with one of our team members. We know you'll be impressed with our immaculate, modern office.

Do you offer any financing options?

For your convenience, we accept cash, check, and major credit cards, including MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express. Third-party financing is available through CareCredit  for qualified applicants. Learn more about this option and apply online through the CareCredit website.
