Exceptional Dentistry of Delaware


Have you ever faced an unexpected dental expense with no budget left to cover it? This is a common problem and can happen to anyone. If it does, it's good to know that financing is available so you can get the treatment you need and protect your oral health. With CareCredit, you can receive the critical dental care you need without having to pay for everything upfront. When you are approved for CareCredit, you can charge your treatment pay off the balance over 12 months. You'll pay a manageable amount each month, and as long as you pay off the balance within 12 months, CareCredit won't charge you any interest.

CareCredit is excellent for dental costs, but you can also use it as a credit card for other wellness needs, including hearing, vision, dermatology, beauty treatments, and even veterinary care. Approval rates are high, and you can apply easily online at CareCredit.com.

Frequently Asked Questions

For best results, we recommend aligners are taken out while eating or drinking anything besides water. This will prevent the teeth from being bathed in food debris, sugar, or plaque which can result in decay, staining, or gum irritation and recession.

Fortunately, whitening has not been shown to be harmful to your teeth. Whitening, also known as bleaching, does not weaken tooth enamel or make teeth more prone to cavities or bone loss. In some cases, there is temporary sensitivity in the teeth as the teeth are whitening but this is not a lingering effect or a sign that anything is going badly.

Not when they are done correctly. Clear aligners are designed to fit comfortably over the teeth and not rub your gums, tongue, or cheek. There will be some initial pressure on the teeth as each new tray is introduced which goes away in a day or two. This mild pressure is necessary to guide the teeth to their optimal position.

A lot of our cases can be completed in about 6 months to a year! This is far below the typical 2 years needed to complete a full orthodontic case with traditional braces.

Excellent dental health has so many benefits and can change your outlook on life. You’ll feel better because you know your teeth are healthy, and when you feel better, your confidence increases.

While we know that there’s no better investment than your oral health, Dr. Matthews and our dental care team also understand that quality dental care can be costly.

From routine cleanings to full mouth rehabilitations, we always want to make sure you are comfortable with the financial aspect of care and the investment you are making. While using high-quality materials and advanced techniques and technology, we keep our fees fair.

We accept all insurances but are in-network with Medicaid, Delta Dental, MetLife, Cigna, United Concordia, and Aetna. Our business team will work closely with your insurance company to maximize benefits and follow up on claims. As we plan your treatment, we’ll review with you the best financial options for you to achieve optimum oral health.

You can ask them about our various payment options, including CareCredit, a 12-month interest-free financing program. Whatever it takes to help you get the dental care you need for a healthy smile, we’ll work with you to make it possible.
