Before it’s too late you should consider getting any dental procedures you’ve been mulling over that are covered by your dental plan. Dental checkups or even more complex procedures like wisdom teeth extraction could all be covered by this year’s benefits; so why wait?

State Of The Art Lab Onsite:

One of the frustrations of getting crowns, partials or dental implants, is these have to be created off site by some laboratory. Dr. Velasco wanted to cut out that extra wait and also maintain a control on the quality of the implants and dental appliances he uses. By housing a high-tech dental lab onsite with seasoned lab technicians; Uptown is able to custom design your implants or other devices and have it down much faster than most practices. Dr. Velasco even has a Zirconia lab to create the absolute state of the art implants. This helps patients as the dentist can ensure the right shade of veneers or implants right there in office.

Zirconia Implants:

In keeping with his push for the most advanced techniques and products, Dr. Velasco has also added Zirconia, to their many lab offerings. Uptown is one of the only dental implant practices in Houston with the ability to create Zirconia implants in their very own lab. Zirconia is very dense and looks identical to natural teeth.
