Do I need to be a patient to receive emergency dentistry at Lone Star Smiles?
Absolutely not—we provide emergency dental services to all patients whether they have been to our practice or not. We do find that many individuals who do not have a regular dentist and visit us for emergency care will often continue to visit us for routine care afterwards. We provide pain-free, relaxing care that keeps patients coming back for preventative dentistry for many years to come!
What might be done during my emergency dental appointment?
The treatment performed during a patient’s emergency dental appointment will vary greatly depending on the problem at hand. For example, a patient with a chipped or broken tooth may have a dental crown or porcelain veneer placed or might have a temporary solution such as composite resin bonding performed. Patients with a severe toothache might need root canal therapy to control and remove the infection. During an evaluation, once the patient receives a definitive diagnosis, they can then work with their dentist to discuss possible treatment options.
