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 .

CrossFit Maximus | Kathy Childress | Customized Workouts | Hamburg Expressions

The beauty of CrossFit even though it might seem a little intimidating is the fact that it can be tailored to fit everybody’s needs. If you do have knee issues and back issues, the workouts can be scaled to fit your personal needs. We write out the workouts for you, which we call prescriptions, in order to perscribe modifications and alternatives to exercises that might not fit for someone that might have a back injury, a bad back or other types of injuries. If we do something that day which for example requires a lot of back work, then we are able to give each individual something else to do that can fit into their activities.

We’ve had people loosing anywhere from 5 pounds to 65 pounds from the time that we’ve been open. We have several clients that have had great success. On top of that, not just the weight loss, we have so many people that start out on medications such as high blood pressure medications and because of the interval training with high intensity, the scientific facts kick in and people are coming off their medications, they feel better, their daily activities are getting easier and getting stronger. Everything is functional so, for women getting groceries out of the car, picking up your kids on a daily basis; we mimic those important daily activities in the gym.

Saving Money and Time with Porcelain Veneers | Lexington Cosmetic Dentist

When you decide to go the route of cosmetic dentistry, there are many different options for perfecting your smile.  Some methods are cheaper than others, but you have consider the longevity of the veneers you will get for your smile make over.  Also, will the new veneers need repairs and replacements in the future?  Can I change the color once they are on?

You must consider these questions before getting work done.  Usually, you will realize it’s best to do it right the first time.  This is where Porcelain Veneers come in.  Cost of the veneers will depend on the total number of teeth.  They usually range from $700 to $2,000 per tooth.  When considering the cost of porcelain veneers how long they will last, and their overall attractiveness.

Porcelain veneers tend to be a long lasting alternative to other treatments that cost less but must be repaired more often and lose their cosmetic appeal more quickly.

Would you rather pay once and get it done right, or constantly repair them?

Do it right the first time, and get porcelain veneers.

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.”

Why Metal Free Dentistry? | Tooth Colored Fillings | Dr. Jenny Miller DMD | Lexington KY

“Why metal free you might wonder?  Another very important part and reason not to use metal in cosmetic dentistry is the cosmetic or aesthetic effect.  If a natural tooth has a silver color and metal filling, when the light hits that tooth the light hits the tooth, hits the metal and bounces back out, turning the tooth grey.  So you can see images of a tooth that has a metal filling in it and the grey appearance the tooth has and when the metal filling is removed and replace with a tooth colored filling, how the tooth completely revitalizes becomes much brighter and you can just sense it is much healthier as a result.  So with any fillings, veneers, crowns and bridges, we are always going to search for the metal free option.”

At Hamburg Expressions you can experience metal free dentistry by Dr. Jenny Miller and Neil Miller.

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.”
