Frequently Asked Questions
About Tuscaloosa General Dentistry

When considering a dental office like ours, you may have questions. We want to help you find the perfect fit for your dental needs, so we’ve provided some responses to some common questions. If you have concerns that aren’t addressed in the questions below, please contact our team. We can answer your questions and help set an appointment with Dr. Carlson for you.

Dr. Carlson recommends coming in for a checkup and cleaning appointment every six months. This visit allows us to identify and stop any problems while they are still in the early stages of development. We also perform a thorough cleaning to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth, preventing future issues. Are you due for this routine visit? Contact our Tuscaloosa, Al dental office today!
Dr. Carlson offers many cosmetic procedures that can help you achieve a more confident, radiant smile. Some of our services include porcelain veneers, direct bonding, teeth whitening, and composite fillings. During your consultation with Dr. Carlson, we can create a customized treatment plan and find the procedures that will give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
Our dental crowns and bridges do not contain any metal. Instead, we use high-quality materials that look remarkably lifelike in shape and color. Keep in mind that partial dentures use metal clasps to stay in place, but your replacement teeth will be made from durable porcelain.
Dr. Carlson offers more than just dental services. He can provide periodontal therapy if you have gum disease, reduce the appearance of a “gummy smile,” and can resolve bite alignment issues that cause problems with the jaw joint—just to name a few! If you’re experiencing any unpleasantness in your oral cavity, Dr. Carlson can likely help.
Absolutely! Dr. Carlson can evaluate you to make sure that you’re a good candidate for dental implants and recommend highly trained specialists who can handle the placement procedure. After you’ve had enough time to heal, you can return to our Tuscaloosa, Al dental office and have an abutment and dental crown placed for a single implant.
The talented team at Tuscaloosa General Dentistry will be happy to work with you to see if we accept your dental insurance. We will gladly file claims so that you don’t have to worry about them. To learn more about using your dental insurance at our dental office, give us a call!
