Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): General Dentistry

How can we help you?

Here at Hawaiian Island Dental, we always welcome and encourage our patients' questions. There's a lot involved with achieving and maintaining a healthy smile, and we'll provide the information and support you need to make it easy and convenient.

Please take a look through some of the questions that we hear most often from our patients. If you have other questions, don't hesitate to call or email us so we can help you find the answers you need.

General Dentistry

We understand that you have a busy life and don’t have much free time to spare for dental appointments! At Hawaiian Island Dental, we make the most efficient use of our time possible while providing friendly, comfortable care. With over 25 years of experience practicing dentistry, you can be confident that Dr. Jaurequi knows how to work efficiently.

Approximate Times for Procedures

Your dental needs are unique, so it's not possible to say exactly how long your procedure will take until we see you; however, this is how much time we typically reserve for procedures:

  • Dental exam with cleaning and x-rays: 45 minutes
  • Dental crowns, including prep: 1.5 hours
  • Dental crown placement: 30 minutes
  • Basic tooth fillings: 1 hour

We provide these as a guide, but your appointment for a similar service may take shorter or longer depending on how complex your needs are. When Dr. Jaurequi sees you for your initial appointment, he can give you a more accurate idea of how long you should allow for your appointment.
