Popular television shows like Extreme Makeover and national advertisements have brought cosmetic dentistry to the mainstream. Dr. Hanley and Dr. Murphy combine new technologies with their extensive continuing education to provide cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry right here in Fergus Falls.
Dr. Hanley and Dr. Murphy recognize that the teeth, gums, muscles, and bones are part of a system that must work as a unit to function properly. Our focus on the functional properties of cosmetic dentistry assures you that regardless of the desired cosmetic or restorative goal, the benefits of having a normal bite, that feels natural and appears natural, will occur.
Having a great-looking smile that looks completely natural is every patient's goal. For some, it is primarily a restorative function of putting back what was once there. We can replace missing teeth, repair damaged teeth, and correct jaw abnormalities in a way that recreates optimum facial balance and natural beauty. For others, it may mean going beyond what nature originally provided. We will combine advanced science with an aesthetic touch to make you feel beautiful, confident, and secure.
