Prosthodontics & Bio Dentistry
Prosthodontics is an area of dentistry concerned with the design, creation, and placement of artificial tooth replacements. Our resident prosthodontist uses their specific training and artistic flair to produce beautiful, long-lasting results.
Prosthodontics relates to a variety of procedures including:
Soft Tissue Treatments
When you visit our skilled dentists in Redmond, WA, you get the added benefit of a prosthodontist. You’ve never experienced dentistry like this!
We have introduced bio dentistry protocols to our office that protect your smile and your overall well-being. We are one of only FIVE offices in Washington State to use this form of dentistry. We are proud to only use biocompatible materials that benefit your whole-body and restore your smile.
One such example is bio implant dentistry. Rather than using metal implants, we use a special white ceramic material called Zirconia.
Let’s compare traditional dental implants with our bio-friendly alternative:
I had a great experience with Dr. Cat when I had to get a crown on a fractured tooth. Annie was able to get me in the same day I called.

A new smile can bring real refreshment. One of our most popular cosmetic services is porcelain veneers. These are thin, custom-made shells that cover over your natural teeth’s imperfections. Veneers can be used to hide stains, align your smile, and cover over chipped or broken teeth. The porcelain material is similar to your natural teeth so you can enjoy a beautiful new smile.
Furthermore, veneers can be shaped and colored to your specifications and are stain-resistant too. Our expert cosmetic dentists use a top dental lab to make your veneers, so they look truly stunning when placed in your mouth.
Gone are the days of unsightly silver fillings. We are now living in the metal-free, tooth-colored composite fillings era. These natural-looking fillings are designed to match your teeth for a more discreet restoration.
As with traditional fillings, composite fillings can be placed in a single visit and will be shaped to fit your bite. The major differences? No one will notice them, and they actually bond to your tooth, which prevents the risk of future decay.
The filling procedure is simple. Your dentist in Redmond, WALearn more about our dentists begins by cleaning and numbing the area around the tooth. Next, any decay is removed and composite material is used to seal your tooth. Once complete, your tooth regains its structure, and you can carry on with your daily routine.
When you’re unhappy with your smile, you likely hide your teeth in photos or cover your mouth when you laugh. This can all end thanks to cosmetic dental bonding!
This innovative cosmetic procedure allows our dentists in Redmond, WA, to use a composite resin to cover over your smile imperfections. Much like dental fillings, bonding involves layering the resin onto your teeth and then polishing the tooth for a beautiful finish.
Cosmetic bonding can be completed in one or two visits, and the composite resin is adjusted to your specifications.
Our office combines a range of dental technology with a team of specialist dentists. This is a recipe for progressive, comfortable dentistry. One such example of this being put into practice is through the use of dental lasers.
This modern equipment is used to remove decay, care for the soft tissue in your mouth, and improve recovery time. With laser dentistry, there is less need for anesthesia and repeat appointments, which appeals to our more nervous patients.
At our office, we are equipped with an in-house dental lab that enables us to create new restorations in a single visit. The lab uses Primescan™ CEREC® 3D computer technologyOpens a new window to the CEREC website, which allows us to scan, design, and create your new crown, bridge, or veneer – with no compromise on quality.
