At Bright Dental, our dentists prioritize great dentistry for everyone in our community at a fair price. We never change more than we need to, and in many cases, we offer many different treatment options for you to choose from so that you can find something that works for both your health and your budget.

Sometimes, approaching dentistry in phases can help patients address the more immediate concerns first so that they can still make progress toward good oral health. We also work with all private and state insurance companies to help you maximize your benefits and reduce out-of-pocket expenses.

After your exam, either Dr. Chandok or Dr. Rehman will go over any conditions they identified. They will share everything with you along with the options you have to correct any problems. Then, they will help you make a choice that you feel confident about and that fits into your family’s budget.

If you have questions about the cost of your care, we are here to help provide solutions so that you can have a healthy and comfortable smile.

Many people do not realize they snore, but their partners do!

If your partner has complained that you are keeping them up at night because of frequent or excessively loud snoring, it might indicate that you have a serious condition known as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). OSA occurs when the tissue and anatomy at the back of your throat blocks your airway, preventing you from getting adequate oxygen.

OSA is associated with a host of other medical conditions, including heart disease, hypertension, stroke, obesity, mood disorders, and early death. It also increases the risk that you will have an auto accident because of reduced awareness while you’re behind the wheel.

At Bright Dental, we provide sleep apnea treatment with oral appliance therapy.

Oral appliances for sleep apnea gently open your airway by moving your lower jaw forward. This allows you to get the oxygen you need to stay healthy and the restorative sleep you need to stay happy and alert.

If snoring keeps you or your partner from getting a good night’s sleep, please give us a call. Dr. Rehman and Dr. Chandok can evaluate you for sleep apnea and determine whether oral appliance therapy will allow you sleep restfully and quietly.

Our team speaks Spanish, Punjabi, Hindi, and Arabic. We proudly serve our diverse community and welcome everyone to join our dental family.

Emergency Dentistry

One of the challenges of dental emergencies is that we can never predict when they will happen. That is why we accept same-day dental appointments and walk-ins when you are experiencing a dental emergency.

Even if you have never been to our office, we welcome you and look forward to helping you feel comfortable again.

Both Dr. Chandok and Dr. Rehman strive to address emergencies quickly so that you can get back to your busy schedule and feel like yourself – fast.

What to Do if You Experience a Dental Emergency

Often, the first sign that something is wrong is when you experience pain or a broken tooth. You should call us right away if this occurs so that we can set aside time in our schedule to take care of you.

Other common problems include:

  • Broken or lost restorations
  • Damaged dentures
  • Swelling 
  • Pain in your gums
  • Lost teeth
  • Extreme sensitivity

Even if you notice a sudden change in your oral health or something just doesn’t feel quite right, contact us immediately. Our team will help you determine if you need to come in for an emergency appointment.

Give us a call and we will do our best to see you right away.

General Dentistry

At Bright Dental, our experienced dentists believe that all dentistry can be beautiful and comfortable – even common restorations like fillings.

Until a few decades ago, amalgam fillings were standard solutions for cavities, especially on your back teeth. Amalgams pose a few challenges, however. Over time, they can turn your entire tooth gray or give it a darker appearance compared to your other teeth. Many people do not like the look of dark fillings and have concerns about the mercury used to make them. 

Amalgams can also cause sensitivity because metal is a conductor. It also expands and contracts with changing temperatures in your mouth, which can actually damage your tooth by causing splitting or allowing bacteria to enter your tooth.

Dr. Rehman and Dr. Chandok use tooth-colored composite fillings in our office in order to avoid damaging the appearance of your tooth. Composites are a more conservative way to treat cavities because they actually adhere to your teeth. We only need to remove the decay. Amalgam fillings require the removal of a greater amount of healthy tooth structure.

Our dentists will match your composite filling to your natural tooth so that it blends in perfectly. No one will ever notice that you have a filling.

Both Dr. Chandok and Dr. Rehman are extremely gentle and believe that dentistry can be a pain-free experience. Our kind and professional team immediately puts our patients at ease.

Patients often come to us expressing fear or anxiety about the dentist. We specialize in treating patients who feel this way by offer individualized care and making sure that you fully understand your treatment before we begin.

We understand that many patients do not enjoy going to the dentist. Both of the doctors are very specific and detailed about the treatment they provide to patients because they understand how important smiles are to patients. 

Both Dr. Chandok and Dr. Rehman want to make sure your experience is painless and that you leave the practice with confidence. Our dental clinic is very welcoming.

Why add stress to dentistry by making it too expensive to afford? We offer flexible patient options and accept all insurances – both state and private – so that the people in our community can enjoy good oral health, no matter their level of income.

Come by and meet us! We believe that once you see how our patient-focused team treats you, you will feel you have made the right decision.

Orthodontics

Absolutely! We offer traditional braces for kids and adults. Additionally, we offer Six Month Smiles and Invisalign to for our teen and adult patients seeking an alternative to brackets and wires.

Traditional orthodontics – Braces are appropriate for all orthodontic conditions, including the most complex cases. Both Dr. Rehman and Dr. Chandok can plan treatment to help you get great results with straighter teeth and a more comfortable smile.

Traditional brackets come in both metal and ceramic styles, depending on your case and your preference.

Six Month Smiles – Six Month Smiles is a cosmetic orthodontic treatment that focuses on moving only the teeth that are visible when you smile. Because of this, treatment times are six months, on average.

Six Month Smiles works great for patients who want to improve the way they look. Dr. Chandok is a certified Six Month Smiles provider.

Invisalign – Instead of brackets, Invisalign uses a clear aligner system that you can remove to eat and brush your teeth. Each set of aligners gradually moves your teeth into alignment without bulky brackets or the tissue tenderness that can come with having them on your teeth.

To learn which orthodontic treatment option will work best for you, contact Bright Dental to schedule an evaluation with one of our dentists.
