Dr. Hahn Speaks To Dental Industry Leaders

Oct 16, 2015 Dr. Christian Hahn presented a lecture on Minimally Invasive Smile Makeovers and the Ethics of Cosmetic Dentistry to a hand selected group of KOL (Key Opinion Leaders) in the Dental Industry.

It is Dr. Hahn’s view that less is more and that we need to think 10, 20 and 30 years ahead for each patient. There now are minimally invasive techniques and materials available that allow us to...

A Dentist offering Botox?

Oct 13, 2014 Cosmetic Dentistry encompasses not only teeth, but the entire face. For decades Cosmetic Dentists have looked at facial structures while designing smiles that fit your unique characteristics. So, it comes at no surprise that such products as Botox and dermal fillers fit right into the dentists wheel house. That being said, many patients still wonder if Botox injections should only be given by “Plastic Surgeons”, “Dermatologists”, or “trained Nurses”. I ask you, who gives injections daily for a living? Who specializes on facial structures? People always ask me about adverse reactions to Botox and dermal fillers. The long-termed safety... Read More »

How can a Smile save you from Plastic Surgery?

Oct 01, 2014 Do You Smile a lot? Research shows that the average woman smiles 62 times per day and the average man only 8 times per day.

So if muscles that smile pull your lips and face up, what to muscles that make you frown do?   So,... Read More »

Feb 26, 2014 Everybody likes beautiful white teeth. Did you ever wonder how a white composite filling is placed? What is involved in replacing a silver mercury/amalgam filling? Well, here is a quick step by step outline demonstrating the placement of a white filling. ISOLATION: We need to isolate the tooth with or without a rubber shield.

Jan 14, 2014   Porcelain Veneers are beautiful, there is no question about that.
