Customized Dental Solutions
Dentistry By Design LKN is a leading dental practice with a personal touch. Offering personalized services for both adults and children, Dentistry By Design LKN strives to provide high-quality, comprehensive dental care in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Routine dental cleanings and exams are the foundation of good dental health. Our preventive dental services include dental cleanings, exams, oral cancer screenings, digital x-rays, and fluoride application. Even if you’re diligent about brushing and flossing every day, your teeth and gums aren’t necessarily protected from harmful oral bacteria, cavities, and infection. There are hard-to-reach places between teeth that can accumulate plaque and tartar that can’t be removed with a toothbrush alone. Our gentle and compassionate hygienists are trained to remove this build-up from your teeth and to spot problems early when they are easier and less expensive to treat.
Crowns and Veneers
Veneers are made of thin layers of porcelain that are bonded to the fronts of your teeth. Veneers can dramatically change the color, shape, and even the alignment of your teeth with minimum alteration to the enamel. Less than a millimeter is removed from the enamel of your teeth to accommodate veneers. Front teeth are normally the best candidates for veneers, and most smile makeovers involve the use of 4-12 veneers. Veneers can be a conservative and beautiful approach to fixing the following concerns:
Gaps or spacing between teeth
Staining and discoloration
Clear Aligner Orthodontics
Have you always desired straight teeth? Did you wear braces as a teen, but your teeth moved years later? Do you notice changes in your bite that don’t allow your teeth to fit together comfortably? You could benefit from convenient and effective clear aligner orthodontic treatment. Clear aligner orthodontics treatment, made famous and popular by Invisalign*, uses a series of clear aligner trays (each tray designed specifically for you) that put progressive pressure on the teeth to move them over the course of treatment into the proper position. We can design aligners for you that are nearly invisible, are comfortable to wear and are removed for meals. Because the aligners are removable, you are able to effectively brush and floss. The results received from clear aligner orthodontics can make a huge difference not only in your smile but also in your overall self-confidence.
Tooth-Colored Crowns and Fillings
Invisible dentistry. Yes, please! We are meticulous about matching your teeth with undetectable tooth-colored fillings and crowns that restore cavities, cracks and chips to a tooth’s appropriate form and function. Composite tooth-colored fillings are also a more conservative approach, last longer than the old-school amalgam (silver) fillings, plus they seal out the bad bacteria that created the cavity in the first place. If there is too much natural tooth structure missing or damaged, we may recommend a tooth-colored crown. These strong, natural-looking crowns are bonded to your tooth for an extra layer of protection.
