Frequently Asked Questions
When pursuing dental care, it’s understandable that patients may have some questions or concerns. Below, you’ll find some of the FAQ’s, as well as their compiled answers in one convenient place. If you can’t find the information you’re looking for on this page, don’t hesitate to contact our team directly here in Manchester, CT. We’re always happy to help.
Do you see children?
Yes! We take pride in making our care as family-friendly as possible, and that includes welcoming in younger patients. Dr. Stanko’s extensive experience with general dentistry translates to personalized, comfortable care for smiles at all stages of development, including infants. We can’t wait to help your son or daughter establish a strong foundation for lifelong oral health and happiness.
What is the best way to replace missing teeth?
Every patient’s needs and goals are unique. As a result, there is no “perfect” treatment solution that will be successful in all cases. That said, we do believe that state-of-the-art dental implants provide a level of longevity, aesthetic value, and health benefits that can’t be achieved with more traditional services. To explore your options in greater detail for rebuilding a complete, confident smile, don’t hesitate to schedule a FREE consultation here in Manchester.
Can you improve the way my smile looks?
Absolutely. Our comprehensive menu of services features several cosmetic dentistry solutions, including all-ceramic restorations, porcelain veneers, professional teeth whitening, and more. Dr. Stanko can help you explore the benefits of these treatment options in greater detail during an initial visit to First Line Dental. Together, you’ll be able to create the ideal smile makeover plan!
I want a straighter smile. Can you help?
Yes. Dr. Lim is our talented on-site orthodontist, and she offers traditional braces, Phase 1 Orthodontics for young children, and several other transformative solutions that can help patients of all ages finally overcome noticeable gaps and misaligned teeth.
I don’t want to wear metal braces. Is there another option?
There is! In addition to braces, Dr. Lim has multiple treatments available that are a much better fit for teenagers and adults who want to prioritize their natural, confident appearance. For instance, Invisalign® relies on clear, custom aligners instead of the traditional “bracket and wire” orthodontic model to subtly shift teeth towards their desired positions. Clear/ceramic braces can also create the same smile improvements as traditional braces in a much less noticeable fashion.
Do you see dental emergencies?
We certainly do. Same-day emergency appointments are available for new and current patients alike here in Manchester, and Dr. Stanko will work fast to relieve discomfort and help you return to your regular routine.
Do you take dental insurance?
First Line Dental accepts most major dental insurance plans and will file claims on the patient’s behalf. To learn more about your financial options, please visit our new patients page or contact our office directly.>
