Additionally, we’ll keep you comfortable throughout your procedure by explaining each step of a process.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth that would otherwise require dentures or bridges. Because the implant is essentially sunk into bone, dental implants are durable and look more natural than bridges and dentures. The actual implant is generally made from titanium, because this material fuses very well to the jawbone. While titanium is often used for the post or abutment of a missing tooth, ceramic may also be considered.

The choice of material will depend on the location and specific needs arising from a patient’s lost tooth. Dental implants are more desirable than other posts or abutments, as they bear nearly all day long wear and tear without discomfort to patients.

Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth.

Our team will evaluate your suitability for dental implant placement based on specific criteria such as bone density in the jaw area where an implant is placed. We’ll ensure that it fits snugly over any existing gum tissue and attaches securely into place so it won’t slip out when chewing.

And now, with our All-On-Four technology, you can get your dental implants in a same-day appointment.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening is a quick way to improve the appearance of your smile.

There are several options for teeth whitening, with each option having advantages and disadvantages depending on what you want to achieve:

  • In-office whitening (in which we apply a peroxide gel in our office) is fast and convenient but may not last as long as other methods
  • Take-home treatments like strips or trays require more time commitment than in-office procedures since they must be applied by the patient at home; however these products often offer better results because patients can use them for longer periods of time without negative side effects such as tooth sensitivity that can occur from shorter exposure times.

Our dental team can provide guidance for which method of whitening may work better for your particular lifestyle and overall dental needs.


BOTOX is used for many reasons that people aren’t aware of. BOTOX can improve the look of a “gummy smile”. If you are having other cosmetic procedures performed, BOTOX can be a complementing service to smooth out fine wrinkles around your smile, as well as other forehead wrinkles and “crow’s feet”.

We hope you have a fantastic summer. It’s been a long year, and you deserve to let that smile shine! Call Hanson Dental if you have any questions or would like to schedule your dental appointment: (763) 682-9796
