Your Independence Dentist for Cosmetic and Preventative Care

At Hanson Dentistry, we understand the importance of good dental health and what having a friendly, conscientious and qualified dentist means to our patients. Robert N. Hanson, DDS, offers dental care for the entire family, proudly serving patients in Independence, MO and the surrounding areas.

We go to great lengths to help you determine the extent of treatment for your situation, whether it be basic dental care or a total smile makeover. By offering take-home tooth care kits, we make sure that you can maintain your own oral helath in between visits to the dentist. Independence patients and their families can turn to us for all their dental needs

Our dentists can provide:

  • Porcelain veneers and Lumineers
  • Crowns and bridges
  • Cosmetic bonding (for closing spaces and repairing broken teeth)
  • Tooth colored fillings
  • Partials and dentures
  • Implant Restorations
  • Orthodontics

High Level of Service
We provide the most relaxing and caring atmosphere for our patients. We offer the same level of service for a routine exam as we would for a more intricate procedure. You can expect a friendly atmosphere and personalized attention to all your dental needs.

Use of New Technology
For your convenience, we offer you the possibility of same-day crowns. To do this, our office utilizes the newest advance in Computer Aided Design (CAD-CAM) technology to start and finish a needed crown in approximately 3 hours. In addition we utilize low radiation digital radiographs, laser assisted soft tissue procedures, and image fluorescence cameras for early detection of decay before it can be noticed by x-ray or the doctor.

Prevention is Better
We offer preventative dentistry to patients by providing oral cancer screenings, pit & fissure sealants, fluoride treatment, light-induced cavity detection, night guards, and athletic mouth guards. We also provide oral hygiene instructions and interactive education to all patients. For a caring and understanding dentist, Independence, MO residents can call Hanson Dentistry.
