From time to time we are asked various questions regarding our practices. We offer thefollowing answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.
What are Lumineers and how can they help me?
LUMINEERS BY CERINATE is a terrific cosmetic solution for permanently stained, chipped, discolored, misaligned teeth, or even to revitalize old crown and bridgework. LUMINEERS BY CERINATE is a porcelain veneer that can be made as thin as a contact lens and is placed over existing teeth without requiring painful removal of sensitive tooth structure (unlike traditional veneers).
LUMINEERS is the painless, permanent cosmetic solution for stained, chipped, discolored or misaligned teeth. No matter what your dental problem LUMINEERS are the solution. LUMINEERS BY CERINATE is the best of both worlds – ultra-thin, yet super strong for a radiant smile that resists any cracking, which can damage restorations. LUMINEERS are completely reversible.

What about Invisalign?
Invisalign is a system that uses clear, removable aligners that will move your teeth over time to give you the smile you've always wanted. Your Invisalign treatment will consist of a series of aligners that you switch out about every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. Your Invisalign system is custom-made for your teeth and your teeth only.
Dr. Brogdon is an experienced Invisalign-trained doctor. He will come up with an individual plan to fit your needs by creating a custom-designed program that will treat your specific dental or orthodontic issue(s).

What can Dental Bonding do for me?
Bonding can quickly fill in ugly gaps between teeth and repair chips and cracks. Dr. Brogdon uses dental bonding to sculpt individual teeth with a special tooth-like material that looks, acts and feels like the real thing.
What about Dental Implants?
If you are missing one or more teeth, you'll want replacements that are as natural as possible. If dentures don't work for you, you may consider dental implants. Implants are permanently anchored into the jaw itself. Dr. Brogdon will evaluate you to see if you are a good candidate. The implant device is inserted into the jaw and a chemical and mechanical bond is formed. The jawbone actually grows into the implant!
How does the doctor keep up to date on current techniques, technology, and materials in dentistry?
Dr. Brogdon – and our team – take more than the requirement for continuing education each year. We also read trade journals, attend professional association meetings, and do everything we can to keep up with the latest developments in general and cosmetic dentistry, as well as dental technology. We are passionate about our profession and hope by keeping on the cutting edge of technology, we can share that passion with you.
