How can we help you?
We always welcome your questions and concerns about our practice, the services and therapies we offer, and dentistry in general. We believe that education and information are crucial, and we make every effort to help our patients become active participants in their own care.
These questions are ones that we are commonly asked. If your question isn’t answered here or if you would like more information, feel free to call our office or fill out our convenient online form.
If you are interested in improving cosmetic flaws like discolored teeth, widely spaced teeth, short or eroded teeth, chips, and enamel damage, then porcelain veneers may be an excellent choice for you. Veneers are thin porcelain shells that are fitted over your natural teeth, restoring their appearance and giving you a healthier, more attractive-looking smile.
Most patients with healthy teeth and gums are a good candidate for veneers. If you have decay, gum disease or other oral health issues, our Santa Rosa, CA dentist Dr. Delwiche may recommend treating these problems before proceeding with veneer placement. A healthy mouth will ensure your veneers stay bright for years to come.
Veneers look and act like natural teeth and require good oral hygiene habits to keep them looking their best. If you have questions about how to care for your veneers, don’t hesitate to ask! We will be happy to demonstrate the best way for you to keep your veneers looking healthy and natural.
The best way to find out if veneers are right for you is to call our office and schedule a consultation with Dr. Amanda Delwiche. She'll perform a comprehensive examination to make sure that veneers can help you meet your goals.
With a smile makeover! Your Santa Rosa dentist Dr. Delwiche and her staff are experienced in many cosmetic dental procedures that can take your smile from embarrassing to bright and beautiful.

With a customized comprehensive treatment plan that’s tailored to your teeth and your needs, we can do just a few simple procedures or a complete overhaul of your mouth, fixing issues such as staining, yellowed teeth, cracks, chips, gaps, misshapen teeth, and more. If you’ve ever wondered if there was a way to improve a less than perfect smile, the answer is yes! We will also treat any other dental issues such as decay and gum disease, giving you a healthier, happier mouth.
Dental technology is always improving, and we can take advantage of these improvements to give you beautiful, long-lasting results that will improve your self esteem and your smile at the same time. If you’re not happy with your smile, call to schedule a consultation and let us show you all the ways we can change your mouth from shameful to shining.
Teeth can become yellowed and stained over time, and many people are concerned about the color of their smile. If you want a brighter smile, teeth whitening may be the answer you’re looking for. Most teeth whitening systems consist of trays that are filled with a specially formulated whitening gel and worn over your teeth for several hours per day, usually while you sleep.
At our office, we offer a professional teeth whitening system that you can use at home using customized whitening trays made to fit your mouth comfortably. We use Opalescence whitening gel, which comes in three different strengths for individualized results. Used properly, our teeth whitening system gives you whiter, brighter teeth in just a few weeks. Dr. Delwiche will work with you to create a whitening plan that suits your needs to get you the best results possible.
While not all stains and discoloring are treatable, most patients are happy with the results gained through teeth whitening. If you have questions or concerns about your specific situation, Dr. Delwiche will be happy to discuss your treatment options with you.
If you are interested in joining our Quality Dental discount plan, our office would love to assist you.

Appointment times vary depending on what services you will be receiving. For a new patient appointment, plan on 60 minutes (or 90 minutes if you are getting a cleaning done on the same day).
Most oral hygiene and check-up appointments run about one hour.
Appointments for restorative work usually run about one hour but may take longer depending on the extent of the restoration and how many teeth are involved.
Appointments are usually available about one to two weeks from the day you call (although late afternoons are usually booked out a little further). Call today to schedule your appointment!
Dr. Delwiche and her staff believe that you know better than anyone what your dental treatment goals are. Everyone’s mouth is different, and everyone’s priorities are different, too. We work with you to determine what you want to get out of your treatment, then help you craft a customized treatment plan to achieve your goals.
A comprehensive plan that consists of multiple procedures can seem overwhelming, so we will help you prioritize your treatments based on what’s most important to you as well as what the most immediate threats to your overall dental health are. Active decay, gum disease, and cosmetic issues are usually considered the most urgent. Decay and disease left untreated can become even bigger problems in the future. By treating them now, we can save you from further procedures and possible tooth loss.
Cosmetic issues can affect your mental health and self esteem as well as your physical health, which is why they receive a high priority. We want your smile to be at its best, and we will work with you to determine the best and fastest way to achieve the desired results.
Call our Santa Rosa, CA dental office today to make a consultation appointment and we will be happy to create a custom comprehensive treatment plan that will have you smiling!
Gum disease is a progressive, inflammatory condition that can severely damage your gums over time and even cause you to lose your teeth. During your hygiene appointment, we will review the causes of gum disease and give you advice on how to prevent it.
If you currently have gum disease, our goal will be to stop it from progressing further. A number of different treatment techniques are available, and we will discuss our recommendations, which will vary depending on the severity of your condition.
We accept many insurance plans and are a preferred provider for Delta Dental Premier and Shirrell. For patients without dental coverage, we have an in-office dental membership called Quality Dental Plan that can save you money.
Patients are expected to pay for their portion of dental services at the time of treatment. For those patients desiring to spread out payments over time, we partner with a third-party vendor, Care Credit, to offer twelve months of interest-free financing on your approved credit.
