Dental implants are an excellent way to replace a missing or damaged tooth with a completely natural look and feel. By surgically inserting a biocompatible titanium post into your jaw, the implant effectively becomes the root for your new dental crown. Dental implants are cared for with the same standard brushing and flossing you normally do, and can last you a lifetime if taken care of properly. Dental implants will restore your teeth and make you feel confident about your smile again!
Dr. Louk has advanced training in implant dentistry and is a member of the International Implant Association.
Are you missing more than one tooth? If so, you may be a candidate for dentures. Dentures can replace up to a whole row of teeth and give you your beautiful smile back! When missing teeth are left untreated, it will cause your remaining teeth to move out of place, your gums in the area to recede, and it will even affect your facial esthetics by sagging in that area, making you look older than you are. Dr. Louk will meticulously create your dentures to fit comfortably in your mouth while making sure they look natural.

Wisdom Teeth Extractions
If you still have your wisdom teeth, chances are you will need to have them removed at some point. Wisdom teeth rarely come in straight and they have a tendency to cause issues with your existing molars. Most of the time, the arrival of our wisdom teeth causes more problems than good, so it is generally recommended to have them surgically removed before they become an issue or cause pain. When Dr. Louk removes wisdom teeth, he will make sure you are comfortable and aren’t feeling any pain during the procedure.
We have affordable payment options.
Bridges & Crowns
Teeth that are damaged but still have healthy roots can be restored with a dental crown. Dental crowns will be crafted to fit right in with your existing teeth so that your smile will look natural and carefree. A dental bridge is used to replace a missing tooth by attaching the replacement tooth to crowns on either side of the gap. It’s important to replace missing teeth because your other teeth will move out of place and the structure of your jawline could be compromised. We’ll make sure that your smile looks just as good or even better than when you arrived for your restorative dental treatment.
Root Canal Therapy
Sometimes bacteria can spread down into the root of a tooth and cause it to become infected. At Rock Ridge Family Dentistry, we believe in retaining as much of your natural teeth as possible, so instead of removing the whole tooth, we will perform a root canal procedure to remove the infected area.
Using a special drill, Dr. Louk will drill down through your tooth and clean out the infected pulp. Once your tooth has been cleared of all infection, he will cover up the hole with a special material to keep your tooth whole, strong, and resistant against any future infection.

Tooth Colored Fillings
Dr. Louk is a dentist in Round Rock that uses tooth colored fillings to fill in cavities. The tooth colored fillings have been found to be much more reliable than mercury fillings, plus they look just like your other teeth! Tooth colored fillings have become the new standard in dental practices throughout the country and Dr. Louk is no exception. Your health and cosmetic concerns are among his top priorities.
