Smiles matter, probably more than we realize. Volumes of research confirm the influential role of smiles on our relationships and our self-esteem. If you’re confident, you smile more. If you smile more, you feel more confident. But what if you don’t want to flash your smile because you’re embarrassed by bad teeth? It becomes a psychological short-circuit, with effects that may ripple through your life. Fortunately, a growing range of options opens doors for anyone to enjoy a stunning new smile, and Dr. Lockett’s passion for enhancing smiles brings you the best in modern dentistry.

Replacing missing teeth with implants brings your mouth back to full function and well-being. Stunning porcelains replicate natural teeth perfectly, whether it’s one or more absent teeth. Single crowns or complex bridges can be supported by implants, with solutions for every scenario.
Damaged teeth might seem hopeless, but there’s often still a solid foundation that leaves you with options. A crown, or cap, can bring a compromised tooth back to full function. And with modern porcelains, you'll probably have a difficult time trying to find where the crown ends and the tooth starts.
Your gums form a flowing framework around your teeth providing support and esthetic value. Sometimes a little gentle recontouring of the gum line bring a nice boost to your smile. Plus, properly shaped gums contribute to a healthy environment that supports your overall dental health.
Dental bridges have traditionally been a top choice for replacing missing teeth. With the widespread use of dental implants, more options are now available to bridge gaps in your smile. Esthetic, customized porcelains, engineered into a bridge can be designed to eliminate spaces of many sizes.
Veneers provide an artist's touch to your smile. Custom-crafted, these ultra-thin porcelain creations work in magical ways. Regardless of your vision for your smile, chances are veneers offer an answer. When today's modern materials meet our passion for cosmetic excellence, you'll be amazed at what you see smiling back at you in the mirror.
