Treatments At Lux
Dentistry is a subspecialty of Medicine, and is one of few branches of medicine that is considered a science-dependent art. A painter appropriately utilizes the variety of colors on his or her palette to project his or her thoughts. Similarly in Dentistry, the success of a treatment plan is dependent on the ability of the Doctor to provide options to a patient, select the appropriate tools to deliver the mutually selected plan, and to put together his or her skills to arrive at a masterpiece.

At Lux, our Doctors (Artists) understand that often times there are a multitude of options when selecting a treatment plan. We make every effort to sit down and discuss each of these options that are available for you. We also understand that your time is precious, and that is why we attempt to bring the specialists you need under one roof. Additionally, our schedule allows us to offer our expertise to you 7 days a week and take your call 365 days a year. And YES, you can finance your treatment at LUX.

We perform a full range of surgical and non surgical endodontic therapy. On average over 25 procedures are carried out every week at Lux.

We routinely make highly cosmetic and functional Bridges to close that gap in your smile. Our skilled ceramists are able to custom design a Bridge for you.

Many of our Doctors have been performing smile makeovers for nearly a decade gaining trust both nationally and internationally. Don’t you deserve the best when designing your smile makeover? At Lux we will design your smile and have you evaluate it before we initiate treatment. We believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and we make sure that you are satisfied.

Oral Cancer is one of the least diagnosed but most curable forms of cancer, if detected early. Detection involves a simple head and neck exam, and possible biopsy, using nothing more than a brush. At Lux, we make an effort to detect this life threatening disease. We have and continue to use the pathology services of world renowned Harvard Pathologist, our former professor, Dr. Sook Bin Woo.
