‘‘I've been a patient of Dr. Hoop for over 20 years. The service has been consistently excellent in all that time or I wouldn't keep coming back.’’
Dorian D., Actual Patient
The use of lasers in dentistry is revolutionizing the Houston dental profession. In most cases, we are able to remove primary decay and do fillings WITHOUT shots or injectable anesthetics. Many surgical procedures are now done with lasers and healing is faster and much more comfortable.
Dr. Hoopingarner is Vice President of the Academy of Laser Dentistry and is a master of the Academy. He teaches other dentists worldwide on how to use this new technology to benefit their patients.
The Temporomandibular Joint is the connection point of your upper and lower jaws. The dislocation of this joint can cause pain, joint sounds, limited opening, headaches, and worn down teeth. With our neuromuscular education, our treatments can correct these conditions and prevent a painful impact on your well-being.
Dr. Hoopingarner has had a special interest in treating these conditions for 40 years. He's presented educational programs on Temporomandibular Disorders for the University of Texas School of Dentistry and at educational dental meetings around the country. If you have pain in the head and neck area, we can evaluate and prescribe the appropriate therapy.
We understand many people delay important dental services due to apprehension and pain. We do not want anxiety to prevent you from achieving a healthy mouth and a great smile. For that purpose, Dr. Hoopingarner offers nitrous oxide conscious sedation or full sedation dentistry. Finally, you can sleep through your dental procedure in total comfort
Dental implants are the most realistic replacement teeth in dentistry. Dental implants can replace a single tooth or support dentures with incredible fit and satisfaction.
The dental implants procedure involves having the implant post placed in the jaw. Dr. Hoopingarner usually places the implant himself to be sure it’s in the ideal position for beauty and function. The post needs to heal and integrate with the jaw bone, which takes a few months. This process is how implants are so successful, by establishing a firm anchor in the bone, just like a natural tooth. After surgery, Dr. Hoopingarner provides your beautiful, life-like restoration, which completes your dental implant.
Cosmetic or aesthetic dentistry combines the art of design with the science of dental materials. Our goal with every patient is quite simple: To give our client a functional smile that looks good, feels good, and lasts a long time. Our cosmetic dentistry achieves no less! Using Dr. Hoopingarner's "Principles of Smile Design," we can plan a smile that will enhance your natural facial features and gives you the look you always wanted.
We can produce metal-free restorations that can whiten, close spaces, relieve crowding, give an instant orthodontic appearance, replace missing or worn tooth structure or reshape teeth. Unlike with metal crowns, there is no dark line along the gum area to detract from your beautiful smile. Our veneers and bonding achieve great results!
Teeth whitening is the most conservative cosmetic solution to add some pizazz to your smile. With our in-office treatment, we can brighten your smile several shades in a short amount of time.
Do you desire a straight smile but don’t want to deal with metal braces? Invisalign® is the clear way to achieve a straight smile, using clear, invisible aligners. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® does not ask to put your life on hold. Since the aligners are removable, you can enjoy your favorite foods and stay in tune with your oral health.
While most patients can be treated with the invisible braces, some require traditional braces in order to achieve the best possible result.
The most important step with a smile is your dedication to a healthy mouth. When you come in for your routine check up, our dedicated team will use the finest techniques to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
With early diagnosis and careful planning, we can use non-surgical treatments with localized antibiotic therapy, laser curettage, and removal of local irritants.
We have been a mercury-free office for over 20 years. Our cosmetic restorations not only restore the tooth to health and function but to its natural appearance. We use the latest porcelains and composite resin materials for returning your teeth to optimal condition.
