Implant Crowns That Look Natural at Hamburg Expressions | Dr. Jenny Miller DMD

Imagine the devastation one must feel when they lose a front tooth. Modern dentistry has eased that blow with the advent of tooth implants but still the challenge remains of matching the new implant crown to the natural surrounding teeth perfectly. Compromises in the esthetics or the appearance of the implant crown cannot be afforded when dealing with an upper front tooth. Many times what will happen when front teeth are not restored to match natural teeth is an avoidance to smile and ultimately a negative change in personality. Our smile is the first thing most people notice and when we smile we leave the impression that we are a happy person.
This is a case where an implant crown was made on the upper left central incisor and composite bonding was placed on the upper right central incisor in order to better match the crown. The poor, unnatural esthetics took their toll on the confidence of this patient so she sought out our services to get her natural smile back. After tooth whitening we replaced the implant crown and restored the adjacent central with the same material, porcelain. We customized these restorations in her mouth in order to achieve her natural look. Our unique advantage, at Hamburg Expressions, is our in-office lab. This allows us to perfect restorations in the mouth and process them in our lab while the patient is in the chair. The outcome was fabulous! We have naturally appearing front teeth and most importantly a happy patient who loves to smile!

A new smiling face to greet you at Hamburg Expressions!

We are welcoming our newest team member…Angela!

It saddens my heart to have to say goodbye to my dear friend and my right hand, my dental assistant for around six years…the original Angelia. But we wish her the best as she starts a new and exciting life overseas with her husband.

We were fortunate to find our new Angela right next door to the office. She was instructing at the dental assisting school. Angela has already brought several creative ideas to the practice. She is very attentive and comforting to all of our patients. She is always smiling:)

“As a new addition to the Hamburg Expressions team, I feel privileged to work alongside Dr. Miller and her husband Neil.  I share their passion for cosmetic dentistry, and enjoy working closely with patients to achieve their smile goals!  Although I grew up in Connecticut, I’m proud to call Kentucky home. I’ve been here for twelve years and can’t imagine living anywhere else!  Outside of work, I stay busy with my two beautiful daughters, Jade and Brooke.”       -Angela
