Lumineers, Invisalign and Dental Implants
Lumineers, Invisalign, and dental implants are procedures she regularly performs, resulting in beautiful, functioning, and healthy smiles. She trained with a leading dentist specializing in the technique and has performed more than 100 Lumineers procedures. Crooked or discolored teeth can be addressed and corrected easily as opposed to veneers that involve cutting the tooth’s structure. The thin, porcelain layer of Lumineers offers an alternative to traditional braces, as does Invisalign’s clear appliance, offering teeth movement without the interference of metal. For those missing teeth or needing them replaced, dental implants afford flexibility, as they function and are treated like natural teeth.
Dr. Fifadara and her husband have two children. She remains actively involved in her community, encouraging future generations to know the importance of good oral health. For fun and relaxation, she enjoys painting with acrylics and photography. Lured by the city’s character and small-town atmosphere, she has loved the community since the moment she arrived and is always excited to capture its charm through the lens of her camera.
