Welcome to Hamburg Expressions | Dr. Jenny Miller DMD | Hamburg Expressions | Lexington, KY

_____________________________________________________________________________

Our office is located in Hamburg in Lexington, KY in the Hamburg area which is right off of the interstate and our office differs quite a bit from the standard dental office that you would walk into.   The most unique features about our practice is the fact that not only do we have an in-house lab but, my in-house lab technician is my husband and we’ve been married for 17 years now.  That really helps us in the lab to get immediate feedback on our cases. To be able to know what’s going well and unfortunately maybe what’s not going well over the years.

We know well how to communicate with one another and we use that to our advantage. He works with a lot of other fantastic cosmetic and re-constructive dentists and I benefit from that. Neil’s very progressive, he seeks out knowledge and wants to get better and better so he’s certified with LVI, the Las Vegas Institute, as a master Lab Technician.

We have twenty-two active clients in our laboratory right now and most of them are located out of state. We have lab clients in Knoxville; Indianapolis; Cincinnati; Raleigh, NC as well as others and doing those complex re-constructive and cosmetic cases for those other doctors also gives my wife, Dr. Miller,  an added perspective of the industry as well.

I’m able to communicate with my lab-technician because he’s right here so if something’s challenging, I can take it to him and I can say “what do you think we can do here?” The real benefit is the fact that it’s cost effective. It saves patients money in order to come in. There is fewer appointment time, we’re able to charge patients less for our restorations because it doesn’t take us as long to do these kinds of things.

You know when I was younger, you tend to get a fear of a dentist, and even going to the dentist and everything. I was very self-conscious about my smile and I’d actually gotten to the point where I would practice my smile  because of the way my teeth were stained and everything.  I’d practice my smile in front of the mirror and had it down to an art where I could hide my stains with my lower lip.

Was I nervous about initially getting the work done? Initially yes, but Dr. Miller’s fixed everything and it’s just a complete transformation. You know, coming in here, Dr. Miller and everyone was very nice and she’s very gentle and everything. I’m actually a different person because of the work that Dr. Miller’s done.

The best way in most situations that we can figure out where the end will be, is to models and photographs  of the teeth and do wax-ups before we start and then present those to our patients.  I sit down with a treatment plan and they can see really  close up what’s going on in their mouth, and I’ll go through periodontics, which is gums and bone; we’ll go through bio-mechanics which is the structurally sound feature of every tooth. We’ll go through the functionality of the teeth and we’ll also look at the aesthetics, what’s causing your teeth not  to look good. So looking at these things educates the patient as to what do we need to do to fix the problem we have at hand.

Then we finally get to our treatment options, and I don’t base those options on how much it’s going to cost or any other reason other than what will be best and I always compare that to what would I ant for myself .

My Son is Pitching Now | Hamburg Expressions | Dr. Jenny Miller DMD | Lexington KY

“My son started pitching this year.  Because up until now they always did coach pitch, but now they have to hit off the kids pitching.  Even when he was little he would go through the motions of what pitchers do, how they line up and lift their leg and then throw it and we’d take pictures.  And now he is actually pitching and he does it the same way he did it before.  He is kinda a bit like me, he is little like me with small arms and no real strength.  He is accurate though, he can throw strikes and as long as he has his team behind him defensively, he can throw strikes.”

Tooth Design in Cosmetic Dentistry | Hamburg Expressions | Dr. Jenny Miller DMD | Lexington KY

“I think having an eye for design is very important in cosmetic dentistry in Lexington, KY.  I think some people are artistic and others just don’t have that interest.  I’ve always been interested in art and I feel like I do have an eye for detail.  It’s very important when you are looking at the nuances of tooth form, and color.  Color is a big issue.  Some people don’t see the difference of why color doesn’t match.  Sometimes color doesn’t match because the value is off.  It’s not really the actual color is off, but one tooth may be brighter but the color is the same.  But to be able to distinguish and find out details as to why something as small as a tooth doesn’t match.. is very important.”

Importance of a Smaller Practice | Hamburg Expressions | Dr. Jenny Miller DMD | Lexington KY

“I would say that the reason I design and have a smaller niche practice that’s focused on cosmetics, I have several reasons actually.  One is design is something I love to do, I love photography, I love interior design.. I like creating something that is beautiful and ideal.  It was one of my driving forces in dental school.  I wanted to do something where I could create beauty.  So I had a real interest in cosmetic dentistry.  This smaller niche practice is great because it achieves the goal having a low volume practice.  I like general dentistry but a smaller practice allows to me really focus on what I love which is design.  Having a smaller practice allows me to be with my family, I have three kids that are all active in school and sports and I need to be there for them.  So I have more control over my life with a smaller practice.”

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!

Miller Family Barbeque! | Dr. Jenny Miller DMD


…..What beautiful weather we have had lately…what a great time for a family barbeque! We celebrated our daughter, Layne’s, 15th birthday together. Neil’s side of the family came to spend the day with us…including his 95 year old grandmother. Neil broke out the smoker and he smoked chicken and grilled burgers. A few games of “cornhole” and a bonfire with S’mores were a wonderful way to wrap up a perfect day!

No More Dentist Office Smell

New patients that come into our office tend to notice immediately the environment. It’s very non-dental. We purposefully did that, we eliminated white walls, white lab coats, anything you would typically see in an average dental practice.  We replaced those things with warm colors, soft sounds , soft music, and aroma therapy during every visit. We get the most compliments about our environment.  A lot of times, patients when they are leaving after their cleaning say, “I wish I could stay here all day because it is so relaxing here.”

Dr Jenny Miller DMD | Testimonial | Marsha | Hamburg Expression

“My name is Marsha, and before I felt like my teeth.. the color wasn’t bright and they were too big and didn’t look natural. I’ve had porcelain veneers, caps replaced, I’ve had a dental implant. It is definitely worth coming here. I drive probably a little over an hour to get here to Lexington Kentucky.   Anything I have done, Dr Miller is so gentle and she just keeps asking while she is working on you, are you hurting? I never had. I thought that was amazing, because I’ve always been afraid of the dentist. I think my teeth look very natural now. I think my life has changed, I do feel more confident. I have gotten a lot compliments on my smile and my teeth.”

” The AACD is the American Acadmey of
Cosmetic Dentistry. Which is an organization
designed to help dentists improve with
cosmetic dentistry.

It is very important to be a member of the AACD
in order just to be with like minded professionals.
Dentistry is like any other profession these
days it is always changing. There is always
new material and new techniques coming out.
To do things better and more efficently and
producing better results.

Most schools don’t provide cosmetics as a specilaty
so it sets parameters for dentists to use to
make sure they have ideal results with cosmetics.

The AACD helps us stay on top of the current
techniques and in a more efficient manner.

Any dentist can go out and do cosmetic dentistry
but really have no idea where to begin with a case.
The patient could end up with a result they
are very unhappy with and they didn’t realize they
were going to a dentist that maybe didn’t have
knowledge in that particular field.”
