Frequently Asked Questions
How does the doctor keep up to date on current techniques, technology, and materials in dentistry?
Our dentist - and our team - take more than the state's requirement for continuing education each year. We also read trade journals, attend professional association meetings, and do everything we can to keep in tune with the latest developments in general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry, as well as dental technology. We are passionate about our careers, so we enjoy soaking up new information on our profession, then sharing it with you!
I want to know more about changing my smile. What do you suggest?
An appointment. Your smile and your goals are unique. We offer a wide range of restorative and cosmetic services. After a consultation with Dr. O'Keefe, you'll know which services will deliver the smile of your dreams.
How can improve my smile?
That sounds like an easy question to answer, but it isn't! Your smile is unique, and we won't compromise your individuality with smile enhancements. Smile design dentistry done right requires an initial consultation in which we will discuss your goals, preferences, and options for care. Generally speaking, we may suggest porcelain veneers or Lumineers, teeth whitening, all-white restorations, and/or replacement teeth. After your comprehensive evaluation and consultation, we'll present a smile makeover plan for your new smile. We offer digital imaging for smile previews, as well.
My teeth are stained. Can you help?
Yes. We offer whitening solutions to brighten teeth dramatically at home or in our office. Call our dental office in Houston for an appointment today!
I have old, dark fillings. Is there any hope for my smile?
What are my options to replace missing teeth?
We offer bridgework, partials, full dentures, and dental implant restorations to replace missing teeth. Learn more about these services on our services page, and then call for a consultation. With X-rays, intraoral photos, and a thorough assessment of your dentition, Dr. O'Keefe can help you decide which replacement option will be best for you.
Do you accept insurance?
We do accept most insurance plans, and we will gladly file your claim for you. Please call our Houston dental office with any questions, and remember to bring your insurance card with you. Plan to pay your co-pay or deductible at the time of service.
What payment methods do you accept, and what are your financing options?
For your convenience, we accept cash, check, and credit cards. Third party financing is available through CareCredit for qualified applicants.
