How often should I see Dr. Prach for a checkup?

We recommend visiting Dr. Prach and her Casper, Wyoming dental team every six months for a routine cleaning and exam.

Why are checkups important?

The purpose of a dental checkup is to diagnose small dental problems before they become much larger. Diagnosing and treating decay, disease, or other issue as early as possible prevents the need for invasive care.

Do you treat children?

Yes, we do! Our team understands that pediatric dental care is important, and young children are just as vulnerable to the most common oral health problems as adults—if not more so.

Is cosmetic dentistry right for me?

Do your teeth have embarrassing stains? Are they cracked, chipped, or misaligned in any way? Then you may benefit from one or more of our cosmetic services. Call us today to schedule your consultation.

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dentistry service that uses thin pieces of porcelain to transform stained, cracked, chipped, or misaligned teeth in as few as two visits.

What’s the difference between a crown and a bridge?

A dental crown is a restoration that covers and strengthens an existing tooth plagued by decay or structural damage. A bridge is a restoration that permanently replaces a missing tooth and prevents nearby teeth from moving out of alignment.

Are dental implants right for me?

If you need to replace one or more teeth, you may be a great candidate for dental implants. This versatile service replaces everything from a single tooth to a full row of teeth. Call us today to learn more or to reserve your visit. During a consultation visit, Dr. Prach assesses your needs and makes a personalized recommendation.

What are tooth-colored fillings?

Tooth-colored fillings are used to treat small areas of decay. As the name suggests, they can be shaded to blend in with your smile. Once in place, no one but you and your Casper dental team will ever know you have them.

What should I do if I have a dental emergency?

If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, please call us right away. We try to provide immediate care to patients with an urgent need.
