Proactively Restore and Showcase Your Beautiful Smile

Ventana Dental combines state-of-the-art technology with traditional family values to offer patients a mouth makeover worth smiling about. Alexandra Martin, DMD, is celebrating five years at the helm of Ventana Dental in the Catalina Foothills on Kolb Road. Dr. Lane McCoy joined the practice in 2019 after serving eight years in the Air Force. The dentist duo works with a solid team of energetic women who prioritize communication and customer satisfaction in their practice.

Ventana Dental provides general dentistry services and several cosmetic makeover options to give you a smile worth showing off. Transformation can occur through basic polish, whitening, or minimally invasive tooth contouring. Other options, such as veneers or clear aligners, can create a custom smile that gives you more confidence in socializing, networking, or Zooming.

New technology in biocompatible veneers makes this option an expanding trend in cosmetic dentistry. Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain cemented onto teeth to mask misshapen or discolored teeth. Your teeth and gums must be healthy to be a candidate for veneers.

A typical clear aligner program can be completed between 6 and 18 months. Invisalign and Spark are familiar brands in the clear aligner category. This discreet, clear orthodontic system involves gently moving the teeth through trays similar to a retainer. No wires or brackets are required. Patients transition to a new set of trays approximately every two weeks. Oral health is the gateway to general health and well-being, and straight teeth are less likely to trap food, which can also reduce the risk of gum disease. Aligning the teeth for a better bite can prevent grating and increase the longevity of your teeth.

Maintaining good hygiene and visiting your dentist regularly helps prevent gum disease and decay. Regular dental checkups remove plaque and tartar and enable dentists to spot potential problems sooner rather than later, allowing time to treat them accordingly. To keep your smile healthy, Ventana Dental recommends visiting the dentist every three to six months for a checkup and cleaning.

Entrusting your smile to a professional team that feels like family is essential to making informed choices about your general dental health and cosmetic options. Ventana Dental cultivates a comforting and welcoming atmosphere to ensure patients are well cared for. Dr. Martin’s positive dental experience as a kid lured her into the profession. Her vibrant personality and energy are contagious in her communication with the team and patients. Her general excitement of a smile reveal with before and after pictures never gets old.

Smiling offers so many benefits beyond pure aesthetics. Smiling can improve your mood, lower your stress level, and boost your immune system. A brighter, whiter smile offers people a new outlook on life filled with pride and confidence. Call Ventana Dental to explore your options for a sensational smile makeover.
