63-year old male patient requesting larger, whiter teeth. He was concerned about his gummy smile, and his front teeth chipping and breaking. He declined adult orthodontics because of his professional public speaking but was willing to do anything else as he wanted the smile he’d never had. For him, this treatment was life changing.

49-year-old female. She presented reporting difficulty chewing, chronic headaches, occasional TMJ pain and was unhappy with the appearance of her teeth. After completing orthodontics, she completed at-home bleaching in preparation for restorative treatment. Upper and lower arches were restored using a combination of composite bonding (on 4 upper teeth, and 6 lower teeth) and crowns on the remaining teeth. This allowed for more ideal tooth proportions, provided a comfortable bite, and beautiful smile.

71-year old male. He was referred to our office after completing orthodontic treatment. The orthodontist had built up teeth prior to treatment. After doing some at-home bleaching in his retainers, he was ready to restore his entire upper arch and lower right molars with crowns in order to make his bite more comfortable and improve his smile. Composite bonding was added to the edges of his lower front teeth but chose not to close lower black triangles because they didn’t show when he smiled.

We partnered with Illumitrac to launch an in-office loyalty plan to help manage the cost of dental care for the uninsured patient. Please ask for details or visit our Illumitrac Loyalty Program page.

 

Often referred to as “invisible braces," Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional wire braces. Using clear aligners, Invisalign can straighten crowded, crooked, or gapped teeth, and it does so typically faster than traditional braces at a similar or lesser cost. We offer Invisalign here at our office.

Schedule an appointment with us to find out if this treatment would be a good option for you. For patients in need of more extensive orthodontic work, we can refer you to a trusted orthodontist.

 

 

 

Over 60 years ago, the original founder of Swanson Dental Associates, Dr. Richard D. Swanson, graduated from the University of Washington School of Dentistry, where he later also served on the faculty. His son, Dr. Kris Swanson, followed in his father’s footsteps, graduating from the same program in 1983. Associate Dr. Brian Mills is a third generation Washington Husky and also a proud graduate of the University Washington School of Dentistry.

UW’s dental program has long been recognized as one of the strongest programs in the world. As of 2019, the University of Washington School of Dentistry was ranked No. 2 in the world among dental schools in the new Academic Ranking of World Universities by the ShanghaiRanking Consultancy.

Go Huskies! (But don’t worry, we also love seeing patients who are WSU Cougars or other Husky rivals).

We are accredited through the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. AACD's Accreditation Program was formed in 1985 and began offering postgraduate certification in the field in 1986. AACD Accreditation has grown into the preeminent cosmetic dentistry testing standard within dentistry, including written exams and submission of actual case-work in specific cosmetic dentistry disciplines.

Seeing an AACD accredited dentist helps to ensure that you are receiving care from a dentist with advanced knowledge, skills, and expertise in cosmetic dentistry.

 

Each year, Seattle Met Magazine assembles a list of the best dental practitioners in the Seattle metropolitan area. Dr. Swanson has been voted “Best DDS” every year since the award’s inception in 2007. In 2020, both Dr. Swanson and Dr. Mills were awarded this honor. When you come to our office, you are seeing not just one but two of the top dentists in the Puget Sound area.
