Welcome to Lasting Impressions Dental Care
Lasting Impressions Dental Care has been providing quality, compassionate full service dental care to the Colorado Springs, Colorado area for more than 20 years. Dr. Jeffery C. Platt is a caring dentist who provides general dentistry, as well as specialized services including cosmetic dentistry, crowns, DIAGNOdent, biomimetics, dental implants, and Lumineers, as well as advanced techniques for air abrasion, root canal, and deep cleanings. Dr. Platt’s expertise includes traditional braces, Invisalign and Clear Correct.
At Lasting Impressions Dental Care, our focus is on the comfort and satisfaction of our patients, and our goal is to increase their oral health and to preserve and protect all healthy tooth structure (no drilling unless necessary and no traditional crowns unless as a replacement for an existing one.) Our underlying dental philosophy is based on biomimetics, restoring teeth as closely as possible to their natural state and function. Dr. Platt treats weak, fractured, and decayed teeth in a way that keeps them strong and seals them from bacterial invasion.
Providing Superior Comfort and Care
By using advanced adhesive techniques and properly fashioned onlays, Dr. Platt can make sure that your natural tooth structure remains protected. And by sealing the tooth against infection and bonding the tooth strongly to prevent fracture, Dr. Platt makes sure he protects your teeth from more serious problems. For our patients’ comfort and convenience, we use leading-edge technology and dental techniques including air abrasion to remove decay and custom in-office crowns, as well as superior quality restorative materials.
At Lasting Impressions Dental Care, we are dedicated to providing superior customer service and comfort. To that end, we offer nitrous oxide, sleep dentistry, massage dental chairs, headphones, radio, and cable TV. Visit Lasting Impressions Dental Care and discover what so many people are smiling about.
