Several of the treatments we offer at HMC Dental are described below.
Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You simply pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete and you achieve the confident smile that you've always wanted. The best part about the whole process is that most people won't even know you're straightening your teeth. For more information, visit invisalign.com.
SAME DAY CROWNS
HMC Dental is pleased to offer same day crowns. At the forefront of dental technology, HMC Dental recently incorporated the E4D Dentist™ system into the treatment options available to patients. As a result, Dr Reagan can take a digital scan of a patient’s tooth and design and create a custom, permanent restoration in the dental office, all in a single appointment.
We are so excited to bring this technology to our patients; the range of benefits we can now offer is more comprehensive and convenient.
The E4D system allows the doctors to replace conventional impression methods that include an unpleasant material and the uncomfortable waiting associated with it. The clean, fast digital scan is obtained in a few minutes through a series of photographic images taken in the mouth.
The scanned information is then transferred to the design center where a 3D model of the tooth is created chairside using the system’s state-of-the-art DentaLogic™ software. The dentist can then customize the restoration to fit the patient’s unique characteristics, after which it is created in a milling unit right in the dental office.
The final result is a natural-looking restoration that beautifully fits the surrounding teeth virtually undetectable. The elimination of impressions, temporaries, second appointments, and waiting for the permanent restoration elevates the entire dental experience for both the dentist and the patient. Patients will love watching their new tooth come to life, as well as the convenience of same day dentistry. The E4D Dentist system empowers dentists to treat their patients with dentistry that truly fits their lifestyles.

PROFESSIONAL DENTAL CLEANINGS
Critical to maintaining optimal oral health and should be performed a minimum of twice a year (every 6 months). This includes removing calculus (commonly known as tartar) and plaque (which is accumulated bacteria) from all tooth surfaces. After the teeth are cleaned they are polished to remove stains and any residual plaque. By cleaning and polishing the teeth regularly you can help prevent serious and costly dental problems. The key to having a healthy, confident and beautiful smile is preventive dentistry.
COSMETIC DENTAL PROCEDURES
Change your smile dramatically. There are many esthetic dental prcedures available to improve your teeth and enhance your smile. They can range from a single tooth restoration to a full mouth makeover.

The American Dental Association recognizes nine dental specialties, and the ADA does not include “cosmetic dentistry” as a specialty. Prosthodontists receive extensive training and experience in dental esthetics and cosmetics during their graduate programs which currently last three years. Many cosmetic dentists receive training during seminars or a series of courses, but this training is usually limited to weeend or possibly weeklong courses.

They are bonded to the front of each tooth to create white, beautifully aligned and attractive teeth.
