Special Interests & Training

Dr. Hyatt has an area of special interest and extensive training in the area of direct resin bonding, a method of repairing, resurfacing, rebuilding, veneering or cosmetically improving teeth in one visit, often without removing any enamel from healthy parts of the tooth. Many of his patients love this method of care not so much because it is less costly than porcelain crown restorations, but more so because much of the natural tooth enamel can be preserved and a beautiful smile can be achieved. (see before and after photos in photo gallery on that page)

Another of Dr. Hyatt’s special interest lies in the field of dental implants. Knowledge and techniques have improved so much over the past 5or 10 years, that many people do not realize how predictable and often simple it can be to replace missing teeth with solid permanent implant teeth that look and feel like beautiful new natural teeth.
