From the moment you first enter our offices, we want you to feel at home. Whether you’re looking for general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, or dental implants, we’re glad to provide services to the areas of Cold Spring, KY, Hebron, KY, Union, KY, and Cincinnati, OH, as well as surrounding areas, such as Alexandria, Highland Heights and Taylor Mill. We offer same-day emergency services as well as sedation dentistry, because we believe that anxiety shouldn’t block anyone from having a perfect smile!
At the Wright Dental Center, we offer fully digital X-ray technology. This means you get faster, more accurate results as well as an easier process than traditional film X-rays. Digital radiography also emits 80% less radiation than traditional x-rays. Our CBCT 3D Imaging technology also helps us better diagnose and treat all our patients, especially those looking for dental implants. The precise 3D capture of your teeth, jaw, gums, nerves and sinuses allows Dr. Wright and his team to ensure that your new implants will fit perfectly. And our commitment to digital dentistry goes beyond simply digitizing records. We also include CEREC same-day crowns and restorations that use digital impressions instead of the traditional “goo” of bite plates. Because the digital impressions can be sent straight into our computer software and high-tech milling machine, you can often get crowns and restorations in a single visit!
We understand that not every one of our patients feels great about being in the dentist’s chair. This is why, in addition to our welcoming atmosphere, we also provide sedation dentistry in all of our offices. Postponing dental care due to anxiety can cause a lot of harm down the line, and at the Wright Dental Center, we want you to get all the care you need! We offer oral sedation, nitrous oxide (commonly known as “laughing gas”) and intravenous (IV) sedation during dental procedures.
If you have multiple missing or failing teeth, it’s easy to be ashamed of your smile. We don’t want anyone to have to experience that, which is why we offer full mouth dental implants to qualifying patients, as well as free consultations to determine whether you’re a good candidate for implants. Using the state-of-the-art technology of Cold-Beam CT scans, we will make a precise digital map of your mouth, and know exactly what needs to be done to make your implants last a lifetime. These scans include your jawbone, tongue, nerves and sinuses, so we get a complete picture of your mouth that traditional X-rays just can’t provide. We also utilize Smile Simulation technology to give you a full picture of your mouth’s true potential!
