Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How can we help you?

A significant part of providing you with exceptional dental care involves helping you understand how you can successfully manage your oral health between dental checkups.

We explain procedures in detail, listen to your concerns, and explain your dental needs, but most importantly, we welcome your questions. When we know what's on your mind, we can personalize your dental care to match your unique needs.

We have shared some questions we commonly hear at Boca Smiles Dentistry, but you may have some that you don't see here. In addition talking to us during your routine appointments, we encourage you to let us know at any time if you have questions. You are always welcome to call us at (561) 827-8628 or email us using our convenient online contact form.


Your dental insurance is a valuable benefit that helps you get the treatments you need to maintain a healthy smile. But we know that the world of co-pays, annual limits, deductibles, and exclusions can be difficult to navigate on your own, so we are here to guide you through the maze!

Here is a list of insurances we currently work with, but as a courtesy to you, we are always happy to submit your claim regardless of who your carrier is. If you don't see your insurance listed here, please call us at (561) 827-8628.



Delta Dental





We understand that cost may be a determining factor in the dental treatments you choose. But we don't want you to sacrifice a healthy smile because of a limited budget. We do everything possible to make your care affordable by recommending conservative treatment options, staging your treatment over a period of several months, and providing financing options that fit your budget.

While we can predict an approximate cost, unfortunately, it's hard to say with certainty how much your treatment will cost until we know your current level of oral health and the steps we have to take to solve your unique problem. But Dr. Raymond Lee will go over every step of your treatment plan in detail, and our financial expert will help you find ways to make your care as affordable as possible.

We are providers for Aetna, Cigna, Delta Dental, Guardian, Humana, and UnitedHealthcare, but we are happy to file all claims on your behalf regardless of who your carrier is. We will provide pre-treatment estimates and work with your insurance to make sure you get the most out of your benefits.

We are also pleased to work with CareCredit third-party financing. This is a payment option that allows you to receive the care you need today and then make small, manageable monthly payments until the balance is paid off. Please let us know if you're interested in CareCredit, and we'll help you apply.

Please don't let worries about the cost of treatment prevent you from getting the care you need. We're committed to helping you achieve excellent oral health and will work with you to find the financial solution that fits your needs. Please call us at (561) 827-8628, and a knowledgeable member of our team will be happy to assist you.

At Boca Smiles Dentistry, we are committed to ensuring that you have access to high-quality, affordable dental care. That means providing you with a variety of payment options designed to fit your budget.

We accept Aetna, Cigna, Delta, Guardian, Humana, MetLife, and UnitedHealthcare. But regardless of who your carrier is, we are always happy to submit your claims on your behalf.

We are also pleased to offer our patients the convenience of CareCredit interest-free financing. You don’t have to worry about covering a co-pay or unexpected dental expenses because CareCredit is there to fill the gap. With CareCredit, you can choose a payback period (typically 6, 12, or 18 months) and a monthly payment that is gentle on your budget. As long as you pay the balance within the agreed period, you won’t be charged any interest.

Dr. Lee and our team want you to have the healthy smile you desire, and we’ll do what it takes to help you get there. If you have any questions about insurance or our payment options, please call our Boca dental office, and a member of our team will be happy to assist you.

Cosmetic Dentistry

There’s never been a better time to consider a smile makeover to restore your appearance and give your confidence a boost. Today at Boca Smiles Dentistry, we have more options than ever for customizing a smile makeover that’s completely “you.”

It used to be that a smile makeover came with a hefty price tag. But improvements in dental materials, technology, and techniques now allow us to brighten your smile, fix tooth misalignments, and restore and resurface damaged teeth without breaking your budget.

Your needs are unique, and if your teeth are otherwise healthy, all you may need is a professional whitening treatment to restore a fresh, youthful appearance. Dental bonding is another affordable approach that allows us to make dramatic improvements to your smile without the big price tag.

Damaged teeth or missing teeth don’t just hurt, they also look unattractive. We have plenty of options for restoring worn, broken, or decayed teeth with treatments like dental implants, dentures, crowns, and bridges to restore your oral health and your smile.

Today, you have plenty of options for improving your smile, and the team at our Boca Raton dental office would love to help. If you would like to learn more about the possibilities that exist for you, please call us to arrange a convenient smile consultation. 

Crowns & Bridges

Today, dental restorations like crowns, bridges, and dentures are more durable than ever and designed to stand up to routine wear and tear. But the lifespan of any dental restoration depends entirely on how well you care for your oral health.

For instance, a well-made dental crown should give you 15 years of use. But poor oral hygiene or inadequate gum care can dramatically reduce the longevity of your crown. Likewise, the average lifespan of a dental bridge is 5 to 15 years, but you need to take proper care of your oral health to enjoy the benefits of a restored smile.

We can't be with you 24/7, so we assist you by answering your questions and demonstrating proper oral hygiene techniques. We then support those efforts with semi-annual exams and comprehensive dental cleanings.

At Boca Smiles Dentistry, your good oral health is a team effort. If you are thinking of making a change to your smile and have questions, please don't hesitate to call us at (561) 827-8628. We will be happy to arrange a consultation so you can talk to Dr. Lee about your concerns and let us know how we can help you.

Root Canals

We know that many people don't like dentistry because they worry that it will be uncomfortable. But we can assure you that you have nothing to fear because, at Boca Smiles Dentistry, your comfort is our first priority!

In recent years, a lot has changed about the way we perform treatments like root canals and extractions. First, dental technology has dramatically streamlined these procedures. Dr. Raymond Lee uses state-of-the-art rotary endodontic technology that makes the process faster, increasing your comfort and minimizing the time you need to spend in the dental chair.

We also offer the benefits of comforting oral sedation. A big obstacle for many people is just getting to the dentist's office. But with oral sedation, Dr. Lee prescribes a calming medication for you to take about an hour before your appointment so that by the time you arrive at our office you will feel calm and relaxed. The effects of the medication last for several hours so you will remain comfortable throughout your procedure, but you will need a friend to drive you to and from your appointment safely.

Most importantly, though, the team at Boca Smiles Dentistry provides personalized, one-on-one care. We're a small office, and we only schedule one patient at a time so we can devote our attention to you by answering your questions and calming your worries. Our kind, friendly team is here to support and encourage you in getting the treatment you need because we know the value of good oral health. The evening of your procedure, Dr. Lee will call you to check in and see how you're doing and if you have any questions.

If you would like to learn more about our stress-free dentistry, please call us at (561) 827-8628 to arrange an appointment!
