When you are looking for a dental professional to care for one of your most valuable assets, your smile, you may wish to evaluate the practice thoroughly. If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile because of overcrowded, gapping, twisted, or crooked teeth, there are many options available today. To find the best options for your lifestyle, budget, and unique needs, several factors should be considered, such as:
- What is the experience and background of the doctor?
- What options are available for straightening teeth?
- Is a full range of dental services available in one place?
- What do current patients say about their care?
At Biltmore Dental Center in Phoenix, Dr. Sameet Koppikar has been helping patients to achieve their most appealing and healthiest smiles for more than 15 years. A board-certified Doctor of Dental Surgery who graduated from Marquette University, Dr. Koppikar also completed advanced training at Louis Stokes VA Hospital and he has received awards and nominations by patients and medical peers alike. Those recognitions include Talk of the Town for excellence in customer satisfaction, Top Cosmetic Dentist, Doctors’ Choice Award, and the highest ranking on Dr. Oogle.
Our team at Biltmore Dental Center understands that dental care is not “one size fits all.” That’s why we offer options to meet our patients’ specific needs. For alignment issues or orthodontic treatment, our patients can choose from Invisalign, Six Month Smiles, or conventional braces.
A revolutionary alignment system, Invisalign straightens teeth without the wire and bracket style of braces. Clear, comfortable, and removable trays gradually move the teeth into the preferred position with gentle pressure. Every two weeks, new trays continue the positive re-alignment. Invisalign offers discreet, virtually invisible alignment correction.
Six Month Smiles
Also called cosmetic braces, Six Month Smiles, as the name implies, straightens the teeth that are visible when a patient smiles, typically in about six months. With clear brackets and tooth-colored wires, Six Month Smiles also offers adult patients the option of orthodontics without the stigma of traditional braces.
In some cases, standard braces may still be the most appropriate treatment, although they are often the last choice because of the advantages of the other options available.
Biltmore Dental Center provides all of the dental care services that patients and their families may need, without requiring referrals to other unknown practices. We provide family, preventive, emergency, cosmetic, orthodontic, and restorative dentistry, as well as treatment for gum disease and root canal.
We encourage our patients to share their stories, which can be seen in our Smile Gallery and Patient Reviews. For a complimentary consultation or an appointment, call us today at (602) 954-8200.
