Cosmetic Dentistry

What’s in a Smile?

Regardless of where you come from or what language you speak, your smile is an important form of communication. It instantly portrays your personality, self image, and how you feel about the people youʼre with.

Modern dentistry is advancing very rapidly. A pleasing natural smile can be a reality for nearly everyone. Nothing creates a better first impression than a nice radiant smile. Thatʼs why I have spent over 27 years becoming not just a dentist, but a dental craftsman. All dentistry has cosmetic and health components. I work hard to balance the art and science of the alignment, shape, and color of your teeth, as well as their overall condition—because your smile is more than your teeth; itʼs about your life.

Teeth Whitening Treatment

It is normal for our teeth to darken over time. Foods, coffee, tobacco and red wine can accelerate this process. The good news is, there are safe and effective options to lighten your teeth. You need to know that we all are different, and results will vary. Some people may have short term sensitivity of their teeth and or gums. This does not cause any permanent harm to your teeth but it may effect how quickly you whiten your teeth. Most patients will need to “touch up” their whitening over time. Dr. Lockhart offers two options to suit your specific needs.

  • Deep Bleaching Max – This is an option for those that have stained teeth and want to get a jump start on their whitening. Phase one of the treatment involves wearing custom trays, at night for two weeks, Phase two is an “in office” one hour treatment, after that you wear the trays at home until you have reached your goal. You keep the trays to “touch up” your teeth as needed.
  • Take Home Trays – This is our most popular option. We make custom trays that hold whitening gel on your teeth, and you wear them one hour per day. Normal treatment time is around two weeks, but results do vary. Keep your trays to touch up your smile as needed. Additional whitening gel is available at our office, so you can use the gel in trays you already own.

Bonding Services

The use of carefully layered resins that match tooth your color, enabling the partial reshaping/rebuilding of teeth. This is a simple procedure, looks fantastic and might be an economical solution to simple problems.

White Fillings

These fillings are made of durable resin can be bonded to your teeth for a stronger and more natural-looking effect. It will also blend in much better with any teeth whitening services you may have received.

Porcelain Veneers

Are you proud of your smile? Do you look at magazine models and television stars wishing you had the same confident grin they have? If your front teeth are discolored and stained, chipped, cracked, slightly misaligned, or have metal fillings, consider veneers. Made from thin sheaths of layered porcelain, veneers can completely cover the front of your teeth to create a perfectly shaped, dazzling white, gorgeous smile. The most modern veneers look completely natural, too.

After a comprehensive exam, we will develop a cosmetic plan for improving the appearance of your smile. Veneers, also called laminates, are long lasting, stain resistant, and require only two visits for the complete treatment. In fact, you’ll leave the first appointment with a set of temporary veneers while your custom final veneers are being crafted at a lab. Because we custom craft each patient’s veneers, you can choose the shape, color, and style that best compliments your appearance and the image you want to achieve.

All Porcelain Crowns

These crowns add beauty to your smile. Our skill at crafting comfortable, beautiful, long-lasting dental crowns makes Lockhart Dentistry second to none. Dental crowns, also known as caps, slide over the teeth to hide misshaped, misaligned, discolored, or other tooth imperfections. They are also used to cover and protect cracked teeth, increase comfort, and offer extra support to teeth that are weak or damaged.

Cosmetic Focused Short Term Orthodontics

Not happy with your smile, but conventional metal braces are out of question? Today there are options for busy adults to get the smile they deserve with out the commitment of long term metal braces.

  • Invisalign – “Clear Braces”. You wear clear tray “aligners” that are virtually invisible to others. Our patients appreciate the fact that are able to remove them for eating,brushing and flossing.
  • Six Month Smiles – Short term orthodontic treatment using clear brackets and tooth colored wires that are barely visible. With an average treatment time of only six months, Six Month Smiles is a great cosmetic solution for a straight, beautiful smile.

Complete Smile Makeover

Sometimes teeth are worn and unattractive and are going to require a little more extensive care. Dr. Lockhart and his experienced team will help you get in optimal oral health and it’ll be easier than you thought.

From our North East Indianapolis office, we serve Geist, Fishers, Carmel, Westfield, Pendleton and the surrounding areas.

Testimonials

  • Gerald B.
    “Approximately 4:45 p.m., a crown came completely out. I immediately called Dr. Lockhart’s office to see if he was available. He was so 15 minutes later; I walked into his office. I was seen immediately; the tooth was prepped and recemented. Less than a half-hour after the tooth came out, it was back in, and I was on my way to the Pacer game. Great job!”
    Gerald B.
  • Steve E.
    “I’ve had several teeth extracted, and can say unequivocally this was the easiest one to date. The tooth was out before I knew it, no muss, no fuss.”

  • Jessica C.
    “I am never disappointed with Dr. Lockhart’s service. I have been seeing him for my dental care for a few years now and it seems that my dental health has only improved since I began seeing him. I value how straight forward and honest he is with his patients. I would recommend him to everyone!”

  • Linda A.
    “Everyone is professional and so friendly. They take the time to explain the procedures, and make you feel very comfortable in a very relaxed atmosphere. If you don’t like going to a dentist for whatever reason, I suggest you try Dr. Lockhart!”

  • Karen P.
    “At the doctor’s recommendation, an old silver filling was replaced with enamel. This accomplished two things. It provided an opportunity to assess the health of the tooth-as it is a deep and old filling. And secondly it improved the visual of the mouth by having a filling material which blends with the tooth color. Though no further care is needed at this time, it is valuable to know what may be necessary going forward which eliminates the dreaded element of surprise in dental care. Dr. Lockhart and his staff create a comfortable, caring environment which puts the patient at ease while undergoing what might otherwise be an anxiety filled procedure. All aspects of the office visit were professional, efficient and most important of all – painless.”
    Karen P.

    “Above and beyond! Our son broke off a tooth on A Tuesday evening. Dr. Lockhart and his staff are not scheduled to be in the office on Wednesdays.
