Life-changing Implants

Retain your smile of confidence today

Dental implants are a permanent, natural-looking solution to replace a missing tooth. Dental implants bond directly to the jawbone by attaching a titanium post and connector to create a sturdy base for the crown. Dental implants with Dr. Carlson are an excellent solution for those who want to improve their smiles while allowing the lifestyle you’re accustomed to – confidently smile, laugh, and eat what you want.

Cosmetic Dentistry

New Smile, New Life – Cosmetic Dentistry by Dr. Carlson

Cosmetic dentistry at Tuscaloosa General Dentistry includes dental procedures that improve a person’s teeth and gums, resulting in a better, more noticeable smile. Although the term cosmetic dentistry is commonly referred to as general dentistry is redundant, since general dentistry is aimed at improving the look and feel of a patient’s teeth; the term focuses more emphasis on improving the smile and overall appearance of the teeth. Dr. Carlson’s goal when it comes to Cosmetic dentistry will always be, find a treatment plan that makes sense and walk the patient through each step.
