Frequently Asked Questions
Dr. Beaty wants all of his patients to be as informed as possible when it comes to the services we provide. Since we get questions from both new and current patients on a regular basis, we’ve decided to include a detailed list of the most common questions our practice hears. If your question isn’t listed, feel free to give our office a call! Our priority is making sure you can make an informed decision on all of your dental care needs.
Do you see families?
Yes! Dr. Drew Beaty and the rest of our team enjoy treating smiles of all ages with a wide variety of services, from children’s dentistry to advanced tooth replacement options. Whatever your needs are, we want to help you and your loved ones achieve your best smiles.
I’ve lost some teeth. What are my options for replacing them?
Today, dental implants are the clear frontrunner when it comes to providing tooth loss patients with exceptional health and aesthetic benefits. By recreating the entire original structure of the tooth, this treatment solution restores your lost function while helping you achieve a seamlessly complete smile that feels just as great as it looks. Because of the cost and time commitment involved, dental implants aren’t the right option for everyone, though. Implant-retained prosthetics, dental bridges, and traditional dentures are also available at our Federal Way, WA practice.
What’s important to remember is that there is no one perfect service for every single patient. Dr. Beaty will be happy to work with you to determine the best option for your unique needs.
Will my dental restorations look unnatural?
Not at all. Our team understands the importance of marrying durability and function with a lifelike appearance that helps you smile proudly. That’s why we primarily offer high-quality, tooth-colored dental crowns, inlays, and onlays, as well as composite resin fillings that are shaded to match your natural enamel. These restorative treatments are metal-free, meaning less sensitivity and less weakened tooth structure over time.
Dental care makes me anxious. Can you help?
We certainly can. Sedation dentistry is available at our practice for patients who need a little extra help feeling genuinely relaxed during their procedure, and a comfort “menu” is also available that includes nice amenities like noise-canceling headphones for an even calmer atmosphere.
Do you offer emergency dentistry?
Definitely. Our practice strives to be as flexible as possible, and we’ll always say “yes” to seeing your case of dental injury or pain as soon as possible In many cases. Dr. Beaty is even able to provide much-needed emergency dentistry relief on the same day as your initial call.
I want to improve the way my smile looks. What are my options?
At Drew Beaty, DDS, we’re happy to offer several cosmetic dentistry services that can transform your look and self-confidence for the better! These include teeth whitening, direct bonding, porcelain veneers, and more. An in-depth consultation will help us determine the ideal treatment plan that creates the dazzling results you want and deserve.
Will you take my dental insurance?
Our team is always happy to simplify the payment process however we can for patients. We’re in-network providers for a wide variety of insurance plans, and convenient financing options are also available for those without insurance or those who wish to pursue elective care that isn’t covered by their chosen insurance provider.
