Our all-porcelain crowns are used to restore teeth that are chipped or cracked, or have been weakened by excessive grinding. They are also used in conjunction with dental implants to replace missing teeth.
Bridges attach to crowns to replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges help keep surrounding teeth from shifting and help retain the structure of your smile, jaw, and face.
If you’re missing a number of teeth, dentures can help you get back to eating the foods you love, speaking with ease, and smiling with confidence. At Rock Ridge Family Dentistry, we use only the best materials to fabricate your dentures, so you can be sure they will look great and be both functional and comfortable.
When a tooth becomes infected, root canal therapy is often the best way to relieve the pain and save the tooth. Dr. Louk will carefully clean out the infection and prep the tooth for a restoration, such as a crown, which will protect against future infections. Most patients report that the pain of the infected tooth is worse than any discomfort experienced during the root canal, and our team will work at a pace that is comfortable for you.
Wisdom teeth often erupt during a person’s late teenage or early adult years. Because there is typically not enough room in the mouth for the additional teeth, they usually need to be removed. Dr. Louk will take X-rays of your mouth, and if he decides extraction is the best option, he will walk you through the procedure and address any questions or concerns you have.
Veneers are used to fix chipped, cracked, or widely spaced teeth, or teeth that are too discolored for professional whitening. After discussing your smile goals with you, Dr. Louk will personally work with our lab to create a model of your new smile. Using this model, thin sheets of porcelain will be created and then bonded to the front side of your teeth to dramatically change your smile.

Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is a gas that is inhaled during treatment and causes a heightened sense of relaxation in patients. You will remain conscious during your treatment, but will be much more comfortable and at ease.
For those with more severe anxiety, we offer oral conscious sedation. Round Rock dentist Dr. Louk will carefully prescribe you a pill that you will take prior to your procedure. The medication will leave you calm and relaxed, but fully conscious, during your appointment.
Our carefully monitored IV sedation method is used for patients with the most severe dental anxiety, or during extensive or invasive treatments.
