Achieve Optimal Oral Health with Preventive Dental Treatments
Here’s the thing…
There are dentists all over the Dallas/Fort Worth area, and most of them are excellent professionals who really care about their patients. Dr. Christine Hopkins is a prosthodontist. This means she has achieved a level of education and experience that can be claimed by only the top two percent of dental care providers nationwide. And, you can receive your regular, bi-yearly dental care from Dr. Hopkins and her dental team, even if you don’t currently need extensive dental treatment. Since you can go to the best, why wouldn’t you?
Health of Gums and Supporting Bone
Keeping a beautiful, healthy smile for life involves more than monitoring the condition of your teeth. In fact, much of your long-term health and comfort come from having healthy gums, underlying bone, and other oral supportive structures. As a prosthodontist, Dr. Hopkins is more knowledgeable about those underlying structures than a traditional, general dentist. She will help you maintain your complete oral health and will have any necessary preventive dentistry therapy available should a concern arise.
Examinations and Professional Cleanings
Most of us are familiar with the old adage that one should visit his or her dentist every six months. And, if a prosthodontist-a doctor of dentistry that has achieved a level of education and expertise shared by only two percent of all dentists in the U.S.-is available to serve you, why wouldn’t you take advantage of such a relationship? Dr. Hopkins specializes in advanced healing and restoration of dental issues. This means she intuitively knows how to help you prevent any dental health problems from ever occurring. Each examination includes elements such as oral cancer screenings and bite assessments, as well as a smile analysis. In fact, you might not even realize you are receiving such an advanced examination of your teeth. Still, each time you leave Advanced Dental Center, you can rest assured that your smile is in optimal health and that it looks its best.
Regular Preventive Care
The term “regular preventive care” refers to all of the services you are receiving when you come in for your bi-yearly evaluation and professional cleaning. Some of these services you may be familiar with, such as fluoride treatments. However, you may not even be aware that you are receiving other services, such as oral cancer screenings. Dr. Hopkins and her team pay very close attention to a myriad of checkpoints regarding your complete dental health, and should any areas of concern be spotted, they remain ready with the optimal treatment option.
In previous eras, fillings were a necessary evil. They protected a patient’s teeth from further damage due to cavities, but they were unsightly and dark in color. Dr. Hopkins offers you a more aesthetically pleasing alternative to traditional fillings -tooth-colored fillings from ADC!
Tooth-colored fillings are made from a porcelain-based resin that can be shaded to match the natural shade of your teeth. With tooth-colored fillings, no one can tell that you have ever had treatment for cavities. Your smile will look younger and healthier, and in some cases, it may actually be healthier due to the better seal the resin creates with your teeth. Tooth-colored fillings are durable and long lasting. You might even want to replace a few old silver fillings on your next visit to ADC. We’d be happy to oblige!
Your smile is your best asset. Like any other part of the body, it is imperative to take good care of it. Through the years, wear and tear can take its toll on the form, function, and beauty of a smile. It is so gradual that many people do not even realize the change in their teeth. Some notice it but don’t realize that these concerns can be addressed. The sooner you attend to your mouth and smile, the more conservative your treatment can be.

"I have been going to Dr. Hopkins for years now. I was looking for a general dentist but also a doctor that also had a prosthodontist background so any major work that I would require in the future could be done by the doctor who has regularly worked on me. Dr Hopkins has met and even exceeded my expectations in oral care."Julie W.
