Frequently Asked Questions
Here in Arcadia, we want our patients to always feel fully confident about entrusting their smiles in our capable hands. That’s why Dr. Canzoneri and the rest of the team are happy to address your questions whenever they arise. Below, you’ll find some of the most common FAQs we receive, as well as their respective answers. Please contact us today if you cannot find the information you’re looking for.
Are dental lasers safe?
Yes. Dr. Canzoneri regularly utilizes both hard and soft tissue lasers in a wide variety of services, and the results speak for themselves. His patients no longer require stitches after treatment in most cases, and any post-operative symptoms like bleeding and swelling are minimized. On average, patients also recover much faster after undergoing laser treatments like gum recontouring, crown lengthening, and periodontal treatment than they do when dentists use traditional tools. Treatment is precise, comfortable, and highly successful.
As a member of the World Clinical Laser Institute (WCLI) and a recipient of Mastership status through the organization, Dr. Canzeroneri’s excellency in laser dentistry is well-documented. He looks forward to introducing you to these various benefits at your next appointment.
Can you replace my fillings?
Yes. Dr. Canzoneri has placed composite resin tooth-colored fillings for many years now, and amalgam fillings can be replaced with strong, aesthetically pleasing solutions. Porcelain crowns are also an option if the tooth cannot be successfully restored with a filling.
Can you improve the way my smile looks?
Absolutely. Dr. Canzoneri excels at cosmetic reconstruction and aesthetic dentistry. He offers a wide variety of services that are designed to elevate a patient’s appearance and self-confidence, including porcelain veneers, all-porcelain dental restorations, laser gum recontouring, laser bleaching, and more.
I’m missing a tooth. What are my options to replace it?
Our practice has several available services, and the clear top of the list is dental implants. Dental implants replicate every part of the natural tooth, offering exceptional longevity, aesthetics, and oral function. However, we do understand that dental implants can’t be the right fit for every patient who comes to us with reconstructive needs. Bridgework, partials, and full dentures (both traditional and implant-supported versions) are also available. Dr. Canzoneri will help patients explore these options in full detail and thoroughly assess their overall condition to determine what fits best.
Will my new dental crown look unnatural?
It doesn’t have to! Here in Arcadia, Dr. Canzoneri primarily offers crowns, inlays, onlays, and other restorative solutions that are crafted from high-quality dental porcelain. The final results are biocompatible, comfortable, and seamlessly attractive next to natural teeth.
I have a fear of the dentist. Can you help?
Unfortunately, this is a common problem among adults. While our Arcadia team is sensitive to these concerns, we also don’t want our patients to miss out on much-needed dental care and end up with extensive damage and pain. That’s why Dr. Canzoneri offers sedation dentistry as an effective calming aid that can reduce feelings of anxiety and create a genuinely comfortable atmosphere for care. Additionally, our practice has amenities like aromatherapy, headphones, and personal TV screens in the operatory that can be used to improve relaxation.
Do you take dental insurance?
Our practice is in-network with Delta Dental Premier, and we are happy to file claims for virtually all major plans. To learn more about your financial options at our practice, visit our new patients page.
