Cosmetic Treatment by Dr. Fuehrer

When you come to Elk Ridge Dental in Elkhorn, Nebraska, for cosmetic dentistry, you can rest assured you will get the best care available in Omaha, NE, and surrounding areas.  Dr. Fuehrer has been creating beautiful smiles that his patients can be proud of.


Whitening your teeth can be the most effective and conservative way to improve your appearance.  I use the KoR whitening system.  It is a very straightforward process and has given my patients noticeable, sometimes unbelievable, teeth whitening.  The process is simple:

  1. At-home whitening for 14 nights with gel and custom whitening trays
  2. Whitening at my office for one hour using a high-concentration whitening gel

This is one of my favorite procedures to do.  My fee is very reasonable to encourage my patients to finally do something they have always wanted to do.

Examples of my KoR whitening cases:

Composite Bonding

Dental composite is a strong, beautiful resin that can be bonded to your teeth. It can be used on your front teeth to repair fractures and fill in spaces between teeth. It can even be used in place of porcelain to correct misshapen or discolored teeth. It is a conservative procedure – in some cases, little or no tooth has to be removed. It can also be used in your back teeth to fill cavities or replace worn silver fillings.

Whitening and Composite Bonding

Porcelain Crowns and Veneers

Porcelain is the material closest in character to tooth enamel. It is used in a variety of situations to replicate the appearance and function of teeth. It is the most durable tooth-colored restorative material in dentistry.

Other Cosmetic Procedures

Special Cosmetic Case:

In this case, a combination of composite resin and porcelain crowns was used.  The front two teeth, severely affected by cavities around the old filling material, needed porcelain crowns to provide strength.  The tooth to the left of the two front teeth (as you look at the picture) was misshapen and discolored.  Composite resin was bonded to this tooth without the need to remove any of the original tooth enamel!  The tooth to the right of the two front teeth was just fine and was not treated in any way.  This kind of treatment can make a dramatic difference in one’s smile.
