Frequently Asked Questions
If you’re considering pursuing dental care, it’s understandable that you might have some questions about our available services here in Baltimore. Thankfully, we have plenty of answers. Take a look at our frequently asked questions below for more information, and if you still don’t find what you’re looking for, you’re always welcome to contact us directly.
I’m interested in straightening my smile, but I don’t want to wear metal braces. Is there another way?
Yes! At Harbor East Dental, we’re glad to offer Invisalign as an orthodontic service that prioritizes aesthetics. Instead of wires and brackets, patients are able to wear clear, customized plastic aligners that blend in with their natural look.
I’m experiencing a lot of jaw pain. What could be the cause?
Chronic, significant jaw pain is typically a sign of TMJ disorder, which occurs when your temporomandibular joints (the joints responsible for helping you chew, speak, and more) become agitated or strained through a variety of causes. Thankfully, our team can not only diagnose this debilitating condition but also provide personalized treatment that can give you the relief you need.
I want to improve the way my smile looks. Can you help?
Of course. Our cosmetic services are designed to help you achieve a dazzling, confident appearance, and our doctors will work with you to create the ideal smile makeover plan. We offer porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, metal-free restorative work, and much more!
How can I replace my missing teeth?
Several options are available here, depending on the patient’s personal needs, preferences, and budget. Our top recommendation is dental implants, which provide impressive longevity and revitalizing health benefits – better yet, our oral surgeon assists us in completing the entire treatment process right here in-office!
I don’t have dental insurance. Is there an alternative way to make paying for care easier?
We can help you arrange affordable financing through Citi Financing or CareCredit. These plans come with convenient payment schedules, little to NO interest, and the peace of mind you need to arrange dental treatment without worrying about breaking the bank.
Do you offer any discounts?
Yes! When it comes to big cosmetic services like ZOOM! Whitening or Invisalign, check out our limited-time offers page for more information on specials we’re currently running. Additionally, patients without insurance can take advantage of our in-house dental savings plan, which provides significant discounts on all dental services for a small yearly fee.
Will you take my dental insurance?
We are happy to process and file claims for any dental insurance provider in order to help patients maximize their benefits, and we are in-network with most Cigna and Guardian dental PPO plans. To learn more, please visit our new patient's page or contact us today!
