Frequently Asked Dental Questions – Springfield, MO

The Answers That
You Always Wanted

Thank you for considering Galleria Dental for your oral care! We know that you have many options in the Springfield area, so we want to make the decision to come and see us an easy one. That’s why we’re providing answers to some common questions that we get about our practice and services. If you have others that we don’t mention here, feel free to call us and ask. We’ll gladly help you and get you set up for an appointment with Dr. Tolliver!

How often should I visit the dentist?

At Galleria Dental, we recommend at least two dental visits per year. These routine appointments are essential for keeping your smile healthy and strong, because we remove solidified plaque that is basically impossible to remove on your own. Dr. Tolliver also performs a complete oral exam and identifies problems as soon as they begin to develop, helping you get the care you need before you experience pain or serious damage to your smile.

Do you perform dental implant placement?

Yes, we do! Dr. Tolliver has years of advanced training and experience and can handle every step of replacing missing teeth, including the placement procedure, right here in one convenient location. From initial consultation all the way to the final restoration, you can receive all your care in house at Galleria Dental, saving you time and effort.

Why should I consider Invisalign to straighten my teeth?

Unlike traditional metal braces, Invisalign is a subtle and fast way to move teeth into their most ideal alignment. Also, with Invisalign, you don’t have worry about diet restrictions or special oral care. You simply take out the clear aligners when you eat or drink and then when you brush and floss your teeth. Dr. Tolliver is proud to provide this service and help you achieve the healthy, perfectly aligned smile you’ve always dreamed of. Are you ready to talk about Invisalign? Contact us to schedule a consultation!

What cosmetic procedures do you offer?

If you want to improve how your smile looks, we can provide several options depending on your needs. From simple teeth whitening or porcelain veneers to a complete smile makeover with metal-free restorations, Dr. Tolliver and our team can meet your unique goals and give you results that will look and feel amazing. It all starts with a consultation, so contact us today to schedule one for your new, confident smile.

What are the benefits of having a beautiful smile?

When you have teeth with noticeable imperfections, you can wish to hide them and avoid smiling altogether but smiling more often can give your mood and the way others view you a significant boost. By addressing cosmetic issues in your smile, you can have the confidence to let it show in professional and social situations. In addition, in some cases, correcting esthetic flaws can make oral care much easier, helping you keep your smile healthier. In other words, having a smile you’re proud of is worth the time and effort, and Dr. Tolliver can help you get there.

How do you make dental care more affordable?

We try to make every step of your visit with us as pleasant as possible, including the payment. Our team can file claims with basically any dental insurance, and we work with CareCredit low-interest financing. In addition, we have special offers and promotions that reduce the overall cost of certain services. If you have questions about your financial options, just give our team a call.
