Kemmet Dental Design Services

Services considered cosmetic dentistry typically are:
- Whitening or Bleaching

Implant Supported Dentures (ISD) are the treatment requested when no teeth can be saved, and the patient desires the best option to feel like he or she wants as close to the natural feel of teeth, without a denture. Implant Supported Dentures a fixed/non-removable prosthetic without a plate to cover the upper palate. This is the best restorative solution for those who want a smile back who has lost most or all of their teeth and either cannot live with anything removable or semi-removable or someone who wants the highest esthetic outcome while needing to replace all of their teeth. This technically challenging and multi-speciality procedure also presents as one with highest costs to patients. Once completed, you’ll have a lasting restoration that looks and feels like natural teeth, stimulating the bone in your jaw and promoting your long-term oral health. The terminology can be confusing as they are known by many names across the country:
- All-On-4 (porcelain)
- All-On-5 (porcelain)
- All-On-X (porcelain)
- Implant Arches (porcelain)
- Implant Bridges (porcelain)
- Hybrid Dentures (resin)
Once completed, you’ll have a lasting restoration that looks and feels like natural teeth, stimulating the bone in your jaw and promoting your long-term oral health. Call to set up a full new patient appointment and let Dr Kemmet help you achieve the smile and function you desire.
One of the most influential changes in dentistry is the combination of dentures and dental implants. As a major upgrade to traditional dentures, implant supported dentures are securely locked into a firm foundation through dental implants. This helps prevent problems like gum sores, difficulty speaking and difficulty chewing that result from loose or ill-fitting dentures. These dentures are user-removable each day/night and clean easily with a toothbrush. Patients love them as they are able to take them out and also clean their mouth and implants effectively just as if they were brushing their teeth without special techniques. Each year, silicone inserts are replaced to keep the prosthetic denture fitting well. While this procedure adds cost to a typical denture through surgically placing implants, costs are still contained by patients enjoying a typical acrylic denture.
Patients with current complete dentures are always welcome to visit with Dr Kemmet to discuss this treatment, as well as those patients who are on the verge of losing any remaining teeth. Call today to schedule an appointment to discuss this fantastic procedure!
Porcelain veneers are a covering of only the visible portion of the tooth. Depending upon the need for the restoration, they can range from extremely thin to the thickness of a normal crown. They are used to cover imperfections of a tooth that are difficult to restore in any other way such as chipping or cracking of the front biting edge of a tooth, or poorly shaped and malformed teeth.
Porcelain Veneers are typically considered to be an elective procedure by insurance companies. Our dentists and team work with our patients to determine the best restoration for their needs, regardless of insurance coverage, for the proper treatment for our individual patients. Call us for an appointment to discuss this with Dr Kemmet.
Dental bonding is the process of directly adding custom shaded composite resin to teeth for esthetic purposes, such as:
- Closing a gap (diastema) between teeth
- Repairing a fractured or broken biting edge
- Fixing deep staining/cracks/poorly developed tooth structure
Typically Dr Kemmet utilizes 3D CAD design and printing to help you try on your best smile. While costs can be higher than normal fillings due to the extra steps and time involved with design and try-in, bonding is typically more affordable than full porcelain veneers, which are the incredibly beautiful traditional standard.
Restorative dentistry involves any procedure that focuses on repairing damaged oral structures and restoring the function and esthetics of your natural smile. Some examples include:
- Direct resin (tooth-colored) fillings
- Indirect resin (tooth-colored) inlays, onlays, and crowns (milled or 3D printed)
- Indirect porcelain onlays, crowns, and bridges (milled)
- Removable prosthetics: Dentures, partial dentures
- Dental Implants

Dentures (removable, no teeth remaining) and partial dentures (removable, some natural teeth remain) are becoming more and more rare due to the increase in popular alternatives such as implants, bridges, and implant supported and implant retained dentures. Though now with the advent of 3D printing and more durable resins than in the past, it is now possible to print and fabricate your resin dentures in-house, in a shorter time than ever before. We have high hopes for the future of this technology to help our patients’ health in an even more predictable way. While dentures are never a perfect science, we look forward to them getting better as the future generations of materials are released.
Similar to a porcelain dental crown, porcelain bridges restore a missing tooth by crowning the two adjacent teeth. The prosthetic bridge is a single piece of porcelain that replicates the shape of all missing teeth and prepared teeth. Though no tooth remains in this space, nobody would know as the bridge replicates the shape and structure of the missing tooth.
Other options to replace a missing tooth include dental implants and removable partial dentures or partial denture “flippers.” Bridges are permanently bonded to the adjacent teeth, which requires a bit more home maintenance to stay healthy, including flossing and waterpiking underneath the restoration. Bridges last on average between 5-15 years, but some have been known to also last decades. There is a higher incidence of needing a root canal with a bridged tooth due the excess forces of the missing tooth now on the adjacent teeth. Sometimes a bridge can be the only or best option for replacing a missing tooth if the bone cannot support an implant. Discuss this with Dr Kemmet at your next appointment or call to set up an appointment to discuss this today!
If you find your smile to be too “gummy,” Dr. Kemmet can use a laser (Solea CO2) to gently sculpt the tissue into a more aesthetically pleasing shape. Think about it as air-brushing to contour your gums! This is one of several cosmetic dentistry services we provide called gum contouring. It’s quick, relatively painless, and has minimal recovery time. Love your smile and boost your confidence! Ask the Kemmet Dental Design team about whether gum contouring is right for you.
Do you suffer from headaches, a popping jaw when you open or close your mouth, or pain in your jaw joints and muscles? This could signify problems with your Temporomandibular Joint, or TMJ. Whether the result of trauma, complications with your bite, grinding or clenching your teeth, or a combination of these factors, Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction is a treatable condition. Dr. Kemmet can make a custom dental orthotic that will adjust jaw position and alleviate pain.
Dr. Kemmet can improve your smile and improve your life with dental implants. Kemmet Dental Design is fully equipped for the best dental implants in Minot, ND. From the moment you enter our office for your implant consultation, you’ll experience the difference first-hand, as Dr. Kemmet guides you through an assessment of your teeth. You’ll benefit from advanced technology which takes a digital scan of your mouth, rotating around your jaw and head, capturing the most comprehensive picture of your teeth available today.
A dental bridge utilizes tooth-colored porcelain to replicate a missing tooth and span across the missing tooth area, affixing itself to the adjacent teeth as dental crowns on those teeth. Many problems can occur due to missing teeth such as tooth movement, change in bite and changes in your smile. Call to schedule an appointment to discuss this with Kemmet soon!
Pediatric Dentistry is dentistry for kids! From their first tooth all the way through high school and college, it is vitally important for children to have regular visits with their dentist. Many problems can be corrected safely and easily as children, whereas surgery may be necessary if left until adulthood. From the time that teeth erupt, teeth are susceptible to decay and disease. In addition, as dentists, we now know that proper habits including proper breathing through your nose are fundamental to learning as a child.
“Growth and Development” is an area that Dr Kemmet feels strongly that dentistry needs to take a lead role in the medical community. And it starts with their first visit! Call and schedule an appointment for all of your family members today!
Crowns are a resin, metal, or porcelain tooth-shaped cap covering the entire surface of a natural tooth. Crowns are used to repair broken, weak, or worn-down teeth that will not support a simple filling. Crowns are also used to cover root canal treated teeth as well as dental implants.
Crowns can be fabricated either by a dental laboratory or directly in certain dental offices, such as Kemmet Dental Design, with their full in-house dental laboratory. While 98% of crowns at Kemmet Dental Design are delivered in 2 hours, some crowns are by necessity sent to a dental laboratory, which requires the patient wear a temporary crown until the procedure can be completed when the final crown is glued onto the tooth. Crowns can last between 5 and 15 years if properly maintained, though some have been known to last many decades. The strong porcelain materials used are bonded to your tooth, giving a greater strength and allowing less breakage than the previous generations of crown materials.
The majority of crowns at Kemmet Dental Design are fabricated in-house with our fully digital CEREC system (hyperlink). This technique allows a start-to-finish procedure of repairing a broken tooth in under 2 hours.
In some instances, Dr. Kemmet instead utilizes a laboratory to fabricate your crowns as part of a larger series of appointments (See Cosmetic Dentistry, Veneers, Full-mouth rehabilitation.) Typically these are the only times you will need temporary crowns fabricated as well as a return visit.
In most offices, there is no difference in longevity, esthetics, or quality between same-day crowns and lab-fabricated crowns except the days to weeks taken in fabricating the restoration.
Porcelain crowns are life-like coverings of a severely broken down tooth. Porcelain crowns are typically bonded directly to the remaining tooth, allowing a blend of strength in the porcelain and the natural feel of using your own tooth to chew food!
In years past, metal crowns made of gold or a combination of gold and other precious metals were the standard. With modern material advances, porcelain crowns have overtaken metal crowns as the king of restorations, and can be not only esthetic, but also strong. New materials are constantly being developed that are even stronger, as well as more beautiful! Talk with Dr Kemmet about what the latest and greatest restorative materials are at your next appointment! I’m sure he’ll geek out with you, if you’re into that sort of thing.
KöR® Whitening Deep Bleaching brightens the enamel and dentin of the teeth with a series of important bleaching appointments. Similar to our standard bleaching process, but adding some crucial in-office steps is what sets this process apart from our standard take-home whitening.
Dr Kemmet has been utilizing KoR effectively since 2010, where the dramatic change for his friend’s upcoming wedding was one that results could not be ignored.
Since then, many other patients have been successfully treated whom did not feel they could ever whiten their teeth due to issues such as sensitivity, or intrinsic tetracycline staining, or even being told by another dentist that they were not a candidate for whitening.
Ask our team at your next appointment which whitening product is best for you.
