Invisalign® FAQs

What is Invisalign®?


Invisalign is a state-of-the-art orthodontic system that aligns your teeth using a customized series of comfortable and transparent plastic aligner devices. They fit over your teeth, and each aligner places controlled pressure on your teeth to shift them closer to their optimal position.

What types of issues can Invisalign treat?


After careful evaluation and consultation at Family Tree Dental Care, Dr. Hong decides if Invisalign will be able to help you reach your orthodontic goals. She uses the iTero® digital scanner to see the positions of your teeth and how they’ll move during treatment. The customizable treatment can correct overbite, open bite, underbite, crossbite, and crooked teeth and can also be customized to close gaps and address crowding.

How does Invisalign work?


Dr. Hong takes digital impressions of your smile, which she uploads to a computer monitor. Using those impressions, she can show you what will happen during your time using the aligners and what to expect with the result. A laboratory uses the digital impressions to manufacture a series of aligners.

What comes after Invisalign?


You must follow Dr. Hong’s instructions before, during, and after treatment. After you finish Invisalign treatment, you transition to a retainer that looks like Invisalign aligners but serves a different function. It helps keep your teeth in their new positions.

If you’d like to schedule a cosmetic dentistry consultation, call the office in Farmers Branch, Texas, or book your visit online today.


What is cosmetic dentistry?


Oral health always comes first in dentistry, but at Family Tree Dental Care, Dr. Hong understands that having an attractive smile is also a priority. Cosmetic dentistry is a subfield of oral care that primarily focuses on the aesthetics of your smile.

What can cosmetic dentistry fix?


The cosmetic dental services that Dr. Hong specializes in can transform individual teeth or your smile’s overall appearance. Your cosmetic dentistry treatment plan can include procedures and services for:

  • Cracked or chipped teeth

  • Discoloration and staining
  • Teeth that appear too short
  • Teeth that appear too long
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Asymmetry

Which cosmetic dentistry services can I get?


Family Tree Dental Care offers the latest and most luxurious cosmetic dentistry treatments to enhance or improve your smile’s natural beauty. During your consultation with Dr. Hong, she takes initial photographs of your teeth to analyze and plan your smile design. To help you meet your cosmetic goals, she uses procedures like:



Custom dental veneers are designed according to the natural contours of your teeth. Dr. Hong attaches them to the front surfaces of teeth with damage, unusual shapes, or deep discoloration to cover them permanently and give them the appearance of perfection.

Teeth Whitening


Teeth whitening is one of the simplest and most popular cosmetic treatments. The service uses a bleaching gel to lift stains and lighten discoloration on all of your teeth.

Gum Contouring


Gum contouring is a procedure to reshape your gum line if you feel that it’s too low and affects the proportions of your smile. If you have gum recession, certain gum contouring procedures can restore your gum line.

Dental Bonding


Dental bonding uses a tooth-colored resin that Dr. Hong applies to your teeth in a liquid form before hardening into a durable solid with a strong light. She uses it to repair or reshape cracked, chipped, or misshapen teeth.

Dental Crowns and Bridges

Dental Crowns and Bridges

If you have gaps in your smile or weak or broken teeth, durable custom crowns and bridges can meet your needs. At Family Tree Dental Care in Farmers Branch, Texas, Marry Hong, DDS, designs and places these restorations that are made to last utilizing the latest technology. To schedule a consultation for dental crowns and bridges, call Family Tree Dental Care or book an appointment online today.


What are dental crowns?


Dental crowns are caps that go over damaged teeth and are designed to reinforce their structure. Dr. Hong makes your crown to resemble the tooth in its original form.

What are dental bridges?


Dental bridges are similar to crowns. In fact, some dental bridge styles include one or two crowns. Bridges always replace one or more missing teeth. The false tooth or teeth in a dental bridge are called pontics, and they look realistic while filling the gap perfectly. They either rely on other teeth next to the gap or dental implants to anchor in place.

What is the planning process for crowns and bridges?


Crowns and bridges have very similar planning processes. Dr. Hong uses state-of-the-art technology and imaging to scan your tooth for a crown before and after removing some enamel. By doing this, she can make a crown or bridge that fits perfectly and looks like a natural feature in your smile.

Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Dental implants with high-quality restorations can discreetly and permanently fill the gaps in your smile. Experienced dentist Marry Hong, DDS, offers restorations for dental implants at Family Tree Dental Care in Farmers Branch, Texas, to restore your smile and improve your oral function. Schedule your appointment over the phone or online for a consultation today.


What are dental implants?


Dental implants replace missing teeth with natural-looking restorations. Implants are titanium posts that are permanently placed in your jawbone. At Family Tree Dental Care, Dr. Hong creates custom restorations such as crowns, bridges, and implant dentures to attach to the implants and replace one or more missing teeth.

What is the process of dental implant restoration?


An in-house oral surgeon places your dental implant after careful planning the procedure with digital scanning, X-rays, and other technology. After osseointegration, you can visit Family Tree Dental Care for your restoration.

What are the advantages of dental implants?


If you’re missing one or more teeth, you should consider the advantages of dental implants over other treatment options like bridges or dentures without implant support. Compared to other options, dental implants can offer:

  • Zero dietary restrictions
  • A natural feel and appearance
  • Permanent stability
  • Durability
  • Easy maintenance
  • Comfort
Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening

If you’ve ever tried teeth whitening products from your local drugstore, you might not have been impressed with the results. With professional teeth whitening services by Marry Hong, DDS, at Family Tree Dental Care in Farmers Branch, Texas, you can see significant results very quickly. To schedule a consultation for teeth whitening, call Family Tree Dental Care or book an appointment online today.


What is teeth whitening?


Teeth whitening is one of the most popular services in cosmetic dentistry and drives many people to visit Family Tree Dental Care. The service lifts stains from your teeth while brightening their overall tone. Teeth whitening relies on bleaching products like hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide to lift stains and discoloration. It’s important to remember that these whitening products only work on natural teeth and will not change the shades of any restorations, including crowns, bridges, and veneers.

Who can benefit from teeth whitening?


Teeth whitening removes or lifts stains from some of the most common foods, drinks, and products that cause them. A good rule to remember is that teeth whitening is most effective on yellow, tan, and brown shades. These stains tend to be in the enamel, which is the outermost porous layer of each tooth. They’re called extrinsic stains.

What are my options for teeth whitening?


At Family Tree Dental Care, you may choose between in-office whitening and take-home whitening trays. Whitening in the office involves placing a protective barrier over your gums. Next, Dr. Hong applies the whitening product to your exposed teeth and shines a light on them to activate the product. The product stays on your teeth for 15-30 minutes. Opting for take-home whitening trays may be the better option if you don’t have at least an hour or so to spend in the office. You can use them at home on your own time.

What is pediatric dentistry?


Pediatric dentistry is oral health care and hygiene for anyone under 18. Your child’s first dental visit should happen around the time they get their first baby tooth, so you should keep an eye on your baby’s gums over their first year.

Which services are included in pediatric dentistry?

They should start using fluoride toothpaste at age 2, limit sugary snacks and drinks, eat healthy, nutrient-rich foods, stop bottle feeding early, and drink water containing fluoride.

Your comprehensive exams include a preclinical exam, an extraoral exam (outside your mouth), and an intraoral exam (inside your mouth). Dr. Hong records her findings from these exams and talks to you about them one-on-one with consideration to your medical history. She also includes X-rays to see your teeth and jawbone beneath the gums.

Root Canals

Root Canals

If you develop a deep cavity or experience a blow to the mouth, root canal therapy can preserve your natural tooth and prevent the need for an extraction. At Family Tree Dental Care, Dr. Marry L Hong and her team perform root canal therapy on a routine basis. To make an appointment at the practice in Farmers Branch, Texas, call the office today or book online.


What is root canal therapy?


Root canal therapy is an endodontic procedure that treats infected or inflamed tooth pulp. Tooth pulp is a substance that nourishes your teeth and provides temperature sensations, but it isn’t necessary for their long-term survival. By removing damaged or infected tooth pulp, the Family Tree Dental Care team can preserve your natural tooth and prevent the need for an extraction.

Why would I need root canal therapy?


The team at Family Tree Dental Care uses root canal therapy to treat infected or inflamed tooth pulp. These issues can occur due to:

  • Deep decay
  • Undergoing extensive dental work
  • Experiencing a blow to the mouth
  • Chipping or cracking a tooth

What is recovery like after root canal therapy?


After root canal therapy, you might experience increased tooth sensitivity or mild discomfort once the anesthesia wears off. The team at Family Tree Dental Care recommends:

  • Brushing and flossing gently
  • Using a desensitizing toothpaste
  • Eating only soft foods for two or three days
  • Taking over-the-counter pain medication
