Think about the purpose of your teeth for a moment.
What role do they play in your life? The answer is fairly basic-they chew your food, and they play a role in your ability to speak clearly, right? But now, think about your smile. What role does your smile play? Simply put, it’s you, isn’t it? Your smile is your first impression given to everyone you will ever meet. It’s the way you look when you laugh. It’s your health and happiness, all wrapped up in a snapshot. Shouldn’t it look the way you want it to? Combining her years of experience, additional advanced training, and the eyes and touch of an artist, Dr. Hopkins can give you the dream smile that expresses who you really are, using advanced cosmetic dentistry. Invisalign®, porcelain veneers, crowns, and other treatments can give you the smile of your dreams!
A crown can give your smile a “royal” appearance! When you have a dull, damaged, or excessively worn tooth, a filling may not be adequate for restoring form and function. Your solution may be an artistically-crafted crown from Dr. Hopkins. Crowns are made of porcelain, precious metal, or porcelain pressed to metal and are used to restore cracked, worn, misshapen or discolored teeth. Sometimes called caps, crowns are customized to appear exactly like the rest of your teeth, giving you a flawless restoration. After some preparation of the existing tooth, the crown is positioned using the existing tooth as its supportive structure. A crown can rejuvenate a single tooth or a whole mouthful of teeth, permanently. Being an expert on the restoration of teeth, Dr. Hopkins will select and recommend the best material to protect your teeth, and your smile will look great once again!

Imagine confidently walking through life with a beautiful, white, straight smile- just like the Hollywood stars you see in the movies! If your smile has chipped, cracked, crooked, gapped, or stained teeth, and if you are ready for a change, consider porcelain veneers. You can enjoy a genuinely gorgeous smile in just a few appointments.
Trust Dr. Hopkins as she expertly adheres contact lens-thin porcelain veneers to the front surface of your teeth, giving them a fresh, bright appearance.
Porcelain veneers are superior to many other options because:
- Less preparation or reduction of your natural tooth is necessary than ever before.
- Your smile is custom shaped to beautifully match your desired look and to fit your face nicely.
- Your smile is shaded just for you. Enjoy a brilliant, white smile that matches your unique skin complexion, accentuating your natural beauty.
- Using advanced bonding technology and ceramic material, your veneers are strong and expertly bonded to your underlying tooth giving you a long-lasting, youthful, beautiful smile.
- No braces, retainers, or take-home whiteners are needed. Your dream smile is fully complete in a few convenient appointments.
Quickly and easily see dramatic enhancements to your smile. No prep/minimal prep veneers are similar to traditional porcelain veneers but require little, if any, reduction in your natural tooth. This is an excellent option to correct:
- Slightly stained or discolored teeth
- Minor cracks or chips
- Small or worn teeth
- Gaps or spaces between your teeth
- Slightly crowded teeth
- Misshapen or misaligned teeth
Let your expert team at Advanced Dental Center carefully examine your specific dental needs to recommend the best veneer option for you. While traditional veneers correct more severe smile problems and are stronger, no prep/minimal prep veneers provide unique benefits including:
- An instantly straight, beautiful, white smile
- Reversibility of the procedure
- No anesthesia needed in some cases
- Little, if any, reduction of your natural tooth during preparation
- An affordable, fast option to a natural-looking, brilliant smile

Are you happy with the alignment and spacing of your teeth but still feel like your smile lacks that “WOW” factor? Tooth whitening may be all that stands between you and a dazzling smile. Years of coffee drinking, smoking or eating dark, juicy foods leave stains and dull your smile. Let Dr. Hopkins examine your teeth and recommend a custom treatment plan using advanced whitening technology.
Zoom! whitening offers you brighter, whiter teeth in a single office visit. Zoom! whitening involves the application of a proprietary gel that, when exposed to a specialized light source, breaks down the stains on your teeth, leaving you with a beautiful smile. Most Zoom! whitening treatments take no more than an hour or so. With the amenities at Advanced Dental Center, you will be comforted with a warm blanket, relaxing eye mask, soothing music, and more. You can also watch a movie during your whitening procedure if you desire. At the end of your treatment, enjoy being pampered by special formulated vitamin E enriched lip balm and a warm face towel to make your whitening experience a truly special one.
You may choose to have Dr. Hopkins customize a home-whitening treatment exclusively for you. Dr. Hopkins molds a small tray for your mouth and prescribes a whitening gel that is placed into the tray and pressed into position around your teeth. Depending on your whitening needs and how fast you want to achieve your desired whiteness, Dr. Hopkins offers many different concentrations of whitening gels. Your gel’s unique concentration could range from ten percent for more sensitive teeth to 35 percent if you desire a faster result. Simply wear the tray with your gel for several hours per day, as directed by Dr. Hopkins. The lower concentration may be able to be worn overnight while the 35 percent power gel is recommended to be worn twice a day for 30-minute intervals. By the conclusion of your treatment, you will see a brighter, more youthful-looking smile.
Invisalign® is an innovative treatment that uses clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth or to correct crowding. Based on the diagnosis and treatment plan created by Dr. Hopkins, Invisalign® computer imaging will help develop a series of custom clear aligners. They are removable for eating or brushing, and you will change from one aligner to the next in the series every few weeks. Slowly and comfortably, they will move your teeth until you see a perfect smile. Treatment time can be comparable to that of traditional braces. Some patients require as little as six months to achieve a brilliant, straight smile!
