What Dental Services Do You Offer?

Dr. Tempel and her expert team at Gettysburg Smiles offer a variety of premier dental services. However, general dentistry is at the heart of our practice. General dental care is the practice of taking care of a patient’s basic oral health needs. We offer many basic preventive services such as teeth cleanings, oral exams, X-rays, fluoride treatments, and dental health advice.

Preventive dental care includes scheduling dentist appointments with us every six months. If a problem arises during your exam, Dr. Tempel can provide you with quick treatment tailored to your specific needs. Common general dentistry treatments include dental fillings, dental sealants, and tooth extractions. To learn more about our general dentistry services, see General Dentistry.

Dr. Tempel is an Accredited Member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. She can analyze your smile and recommend the best cosmetic treatment to help you achieve your goals. Common cosmetic concerns she addresses include minor damage, stained teeth, and misshapen teeth. To learn more about the cosmetic options we offer, see Cosmetic Dentistry.

If you suffer from complex dental issues, Dr. Tempel offers restorative dental treatments to restore oral health. Common problems include missing teeth, dental injuries, gum disease, and bite disorders. Failing to address such dental issues will result in additional issues and dental work. Restoring your teeth, gum health, and bite will restore the functionality of your smile. To learn more about the various restorative treatments we offer, see Restorative Dentistry.

Do You Suffer From Sleep Apnea?

Dr. Tempel is a Diplomate of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and has advanced training in dental sleep medicine. If you suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, she can provide you with a custom oral appliance that resembles a mouthpiece. Worn while sleeping, it helps keep the airway open so you can sleep peacefully. It is less bulky than a CPAP machine and allows for a quieter sleep. To learn more about oral appliance therapy, see Sleep Apnea.

Payment Options and Dental Insurance

Dr. Tempel provides high-quality dental care, making sure oral health care is accessible and convenient to her patients. The financial part of proper dental care can be overwhelming and confusing. For most patients, we will verify dental insurance and file claims to the dental insurance provider on their behalf.

Gettysburg Smiles accepts many forms of payments including cash, check, and major credit cards. We are also pleased to offer a financing option where patients can choose a payment plan that fits their monthly budget. We accept third-party financing through CareCredit.
