Why do I need two checkups and cleanings every year?
This semiannual appointment plays a critical role in helping your smile stay healthy against harmful bacteria. Dr. Lewis has decades of experience and can easily spot and treat oral problems as they are developing instead of waiting until the problems cause damage later on. Also, your hygienist cleans plaque and tartar that have built up on your teeth over time. That way, you’ll be less likely to have oral problems in the future. Schedule your checkup and cleaning appointment today!
Do you treat children at Perfect Smiles of Doylestown?
Absolutely! We have been helping families in the area for about 30 years, many of which have been with us from the beginning and have grown up with us. We love helping our young patients learn how to care for their teeth and develop oral skills that will keep their smiles healthy for many years to come.

Just schedule a consultation with him, and together you can find the treatment that will get you the results you’re looking for.
I’m missing a tooth. What are my options to replace it?
At Perfect Smiles of Doylestown, we offer you a couple of choices to get your smile’s full health back. We could place a dental bridge, a restoration that anchors to two surrounding teeth, or we can collaborate with a local expert and have a dental implant placed and restored. Both have pros and cons, and we’ll walk you through both options to help you decide which will meet your needs.
What treatment options do you offer for decayed or damaged teeth?
If your tooth is too decayed or damaged for tooth-colored fillings, our team may be able to use a dental crown to restore it to its former function, strength, and beauty. Dr. Lewis believes in conservative treatment and will do what is necessary to save your healthy tooth structure and get you back to full oral health.
Do you accept my dental insurance?
We are in-network for Delta Dental, but we will file claims for your dental insurance plan. Our knowledgeable team members will help you save money on your dental care. To learn more about your financing options, give our dental office a call!
