Dental Implants

Many adults today are missing teeth. And today, one of the best ways to restore missing teeth is with dental implants.

Basic implant dentistry consists of 2 parts: placing the implant in the bone, then restoring the implant with a crown. Most dental offices don’t do both. But we can. Dr. King has over 15 years of experience in implant dentistry that enables him to diagnose, treatment plan and place your implant, as well as restore it. This means more than just saving you a trip out of town. Having the dentist who is restoring the implant actually place it is ideal.

In some cases, however, we may need to enlist the services of a specialist. But even in those situations, our office will manage your implant case from start to finish, utilizing high-quality professionals and premium dental laboratories to ensure a successful result.

If you are missing teeth and would like them replaced, implants may be the right choice for you. If you’ve already replaced your missing teeth but your fixed bridge or removable partial denture isn’t living up to your expectations (i.e. food packs under your bridge, or you’re tired of taking your removable partial denture in and out of your mouth) implants, again, may be the better choice.

Even people with no teeth can benefit from implants. In these cases, implants are placed in the bone and a denture is constructed to snap right over them. The result? Dentures that fit beautifully and don’t flop around.

Real-life Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is one of the most misunderstood and misrepresented services available to dental patients today. Our office will help cut through the media hype and advertising blitz and give you the facts about what products and services are available, how much they cost, how they work, and if they’ll work for you.

You don’t have to go to Hollywood to have the smile makeover of your dreams. We can do it right here, in little Ludington, utilizing specialized ceramic technicians who provide the highest level of esthetic dentistry available anywhere. This may be what you want, and what’s best for you. There are also many other services we do that can vastly improve your smile… and you don’t have to be a movie star to afford them.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

Are you missing a lot of teeth? Has your bite changed or never felt quite right? Are the teeth you have worn and decayed beyond hope? If so, you may feel your situation is nothing short of hopeless. But be assured, it’s not.

Just as the right building contractor can remodel a house that’s fallen into poor condition, the right dentist can rebuild a dilapidated mouth. With the various techniques available today, we have helped many a hopeless patient turn their attitudes and their lives around with full-mouth reconstruction.

Bleach, Botox and Bling

We call ’em the three B’s. And you can get them all here….. Starting with something you might never have thought you could get at your dentist’s office:

BOTOX. You probably have friends that have had it. Maybe you’ve been considering it yourself. If so, you’re in good company. Ever since its approval by the FDA in 2002, Botox has been the #1 way American women (and more and more, men) are choosing to look, feel, and stay younger.

Dr. Aloe has been delivering Botox for almost 10 years. Her patients range in age from 28-and up. Her first patient? Herself.  And she was…slightly older than 28. Heh, heh.

Dentists are uniquely qualified to deliver Botox, for many reasons: We know facial anatomy, we have talented hands, and we know needles.

Speaking of which; Botox needles are so tiny, you’ll barely feel them. But if you’re at all anxious about it, we can offer you something your physician’s office can’t–complimentary nitrous oxide.

Call us today for a complimentary consult appointment.

And feel free to ask our select group of team members about how Botox has changed what they see when they look in the mirror.

BLING. Oh, the joys of jewels! On your hand,  around your neck….and yes, in your teeth!  If you have gems you want to show off anytime you smile, let us know. We can place them in your enamel, and you can sparkle more than ever. If you don’t have jewels on hand, Dr. King has a special stash. ‘Cause he’s jiggy like that.

BLEACH. An oldie, but a goodie. Bleaching things makes them whiter, and younger-looking. TIP: don’t bleach too much, or your teeth will look fake, and weird-looking. Ask us how to get around that. We know how it works.
