General Dentistry Q & A

What is a general dentist?

A general dentist has expert training in many aspects of dentistry and oral health. Dr. Hansen spends countless hours continuing his education in:

  • Pediatric dentistry
  • Senior dental care
  • Periodontics and endodontics
  • Cosmetic dentistry
  • Crowns, fillings, and implants

As part of your healthcare team, Dr. Hansen ensures that your oral health is up to par and monitors you for signs of infection and gum disease. His caring team uses the gentlest techniques during dental procedures, so you can feel confident that even younger members of your family are comfortable at the dentist.

Where can I get dentures?

As an expertly trained general dentist, Dr. Hansen offers the most modern options for dentures. If you still have several natural teeth, you may only need partial dentures. These fixtures rest on metal frames that attach to your teeth. If needed, Dr. Hansen uses crowns to cover weak or damaged teeth to create stronger anchors for your partial dentures.

You may need full dentures if you do not have any remaining teeth. Dr. Hansen takes measurements of your jaw and makes custom models of your mouth. Sometimes full dentures need to be adjusted later on if they don’t fit snugly with your gums, but the team can help you with any issues you may have.  

Do I need cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry gives you the confident smile you deserve. Dr. Hansen and his team offer many types of cosmetic dentistry techniques to help you get the perfect smile. Common cosmetic dentistry options include:

  • Teeth whitening or bleaching
  • Dental veneers or bonding
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Dental implants
  • Inlays and onlays

Dr. Hansen wants you to feel your best when you smile. He offers several treatments and many different price points, so you can get the smile you've always wanted.

When does my child need to go to the dentist?

Plan on bringing your little one into the office as soon as their teeth start growing in. Dr. Hansen checks to ensure everything is coming in properly and starts getting your child used to having their teeth checked. Generally, he recommends bringing in your young family members twice a year following that initial appointment.

Getting your family established with general dentist Dr. Hansen is simple by using the online booking feature or calling the office.
