Restorative Dentistry in Anchorage and Soldotna, AK
Resin/Composite bonding (aka white fillings) have come a long ways in recent years. First, there are the Microhydrid Nano materials that Dr. Hu uses for posterior teeth. This type of material offers superior strength without compromising aesthetics and blending in. Bonding techniques have improved significantly over the years, and Dr. Hu has stayed on top of them, using techniques from the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and LVI global, from well respected gurus such as Ron Jackson DDS and individuals like the founder of Cosmedent products, Buddy Mopper, DDS. Dr. Hu's office is also equipped with SonicFill technology as well. Ivoclar's well known Empress Resin Direct is also available in our office both in Anchorage and Soldotna.
For Anterior Resin/composite fillings and veneers, Dr Hu also has Microfill Resins that add the extra touch of polishing and opalescent glow. The end results are beautiful, natural, and generally done in one visit. Artistic layering and tinting of these fillings in the aesthetic zone is absolutely crucial. Dr. Hu has also passed the rigorous AACD resin case that involves building a badly fractured incisor up to the point no one can tell anything traumatic has ever happened to the tooth. Please see cases in our smile gallery under "Direct Resin Bonding Smile Makeover Cases".
For teeth that have been fractured, decayed, or root canaled or traumatized to the point where indirect materials are needed (such as crowns, inlays, onlays, and fixed bridges), Dr Hu only offers the "top of the line" materials and artists from MACStudios Microdental. Only some of the world's top technicians produce MACStudio quality and restorative materials. From lithium Disilicate or leucite reinforced to zirconia, MacVenners team has the best artists who hand paint each unit (crown or veneer) with expertise.
Dr. Hu also offers CAD/CAM 3 SHAPE TRIOS system for his accredited dental lab to use, which is also ideal for implant dentistry as well as dental sleep medicine. Whether an airway bite scan is needed, to digital impressions for implant coping capture, the TRIOS is an accurate and highly efficient way to complete the impression process. After doing research and publications, Dr.Hu no longer offers same day crowns because he values accredited dental lab technicians.
After winning several major national awards in cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Hu has the experience and dedication to providing you with the "latest and greatest" in restorative, metal-free cosmetic dentistry options in both Anchorage and Soldotna locations.
