Lutz — Land O Lakes Dental FAQs

high quality treatment with modern and sophisticated dental equipment

Please come back frequently for the answers to your questions.

Q. How much will my dental work cost?

A. You can rest assured that you will get a detailed plan of care with prices before any of the work is begun. We accept most insurance plans and are happy to file the claim for you.

Q. What if my insurance doesn’t cover the cosmetic work I want?

A. We now offer CareCredit, a patient payment plan with low interest or in some cases no interest. Please see our brochure here.

Q. I need a lot of work but I’m anxious about what’s in store for me in the chair.

A. We offer a warm, relaxing, caring atmosphere with massage dental chairs and flat panel TV screens that can help take your mind off your worries. We also offer nitrous oxide sedation, a mild sedative that will help allay any lingering anxiety you may have.

Q. Will It Hurt?

A. There are few issues in our practice that have been the focus of as much emphasis as this one. Today, with advances in equipment and medications, our clients state they are much more comfortable in their treatment. Once we have a treatment plan outlined, your specific questions about discomfort and pain control can easily be answered. Above all don't put off cosmetic procedures, and certainly not needed dental care, because of past fears of pain. Give us the chance to show you what today's cosmetic dentistry offers.

Q. How Long Will It Take?

A. Each individual client is a unique case; therefore it is difficult to quote a time schedule. On average, an in house whitening procedure will last about an hour and a half. Bonding cases can be accomplished in a matter of hours in one visit. Other cases that involve bridges and porcelain veneers require us to prepare the teeth on the first visit, after which you will be sent home with a customized temporary set of teeth. After your case is returned from our laboratory, we will seat your permanent crowns, veneers or bridges.
