At Excellence In Dentistry, we restore decayed teeth to create smiles that are both healthy and beautiful. Recent advances in both techniques and materials have made the ‘impossible’ not only possible, but affordable for everyone in Anchorage as well.

Restorative dentistry has been part of Dr. Kirk Johnson’s practice since 1987. Ongoing training is essential for staying on the cutting edge of the restorative and  cosmetic dentistry industry.

Decay is the most common Anchorage dental problem and the second most common disease in the nation (number one is the common cold). If you have one or more teeth with decay, it’s time to take care of them.

Fillings, inlays, onlays and dental crowns are used to restore teeth for our cosmetic dental patients. Even the most basic procedure – filling a cavity – has evolved. There are several types of new materials available including porcelain and composite resin. Each has specific strengths and aesthetic considerations. Anchorage patients who replace silver amalgam with tooth-colored fillings love getting the metal out of their smile.

Inlays and onlays are more extensive restorations. There are two types: direct or indirect. Direct inlays and onlays are made in your Anchorage cosmetic dental office on the spot and applied in one visit. Indirect inlays and onlays are fabricated in a dental lab. They usually require a second visit but the results are well worth the extra trip.

When a client has a tooth that cannot be restored with an inlay or an onlay, a natural-looking dental crown is the answer. At Excellence In Dentistry, we create crowns that blend in perfectly with the rest of your teeth. Let us show you some photos of patients who have received smile makeovers – you will not see any “Chiclet” crowns that stick out like a sore thumb. In fact, you won’t be able to tell which of our Anchorage dental clients have crowns.

Excellence In Dentistry is located at 1000 East O’Malley, Suite 101 in Anchorage.  Dr. Kirk Johnson is currently accepting new patients. Call (907) 349-0022 to schedule an aesthetic dental consultation.
