"I wouldn't go anywhere else." 5-Star Reviews From Tennessee Patients

So today I came in to have x-rays taken and have my teeth cleaned. What a great experience. The Dental Hygienist (Tara) was amazing. She was thoughtful, asked important questions to always keep me comfortable and was a great conversationalist and educator through the process. I really enjoy coming to Living Life Dentistry. Everyone does an awesome job.

I've been treated by Dr. Kinder for over thirty years. I wouldn't go anywhere else. He has helped our children through braces and me through root canals and crowns. Besides being a wonderful dentist he is the kindest person I have ever met. If you want to be treated kindly, fairly and professionally I couldn't recommend anyone other than Dr. Kinder.

We care about your teeth and want you to walk out of our office with a healthy smile that you love. From teeth whitening and teeth cleanings to advanced periodontal care, our office has a wide range of dental services to meet your needs.

Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique

For patients with gum recession, the Chao Pinhole Technique is a minimally invasive procedure that doesn't use scalpels or sutures. Traditional therapies involve a soft tissue graft, which requires an extensive procedure and recovery time. The Chao Pinhole Technique is significantly faster and more comfortable, making it an excellent option to restore the health of your gums and protect your oral health.

Do you want a straighter smile without the hassle of bulky metal braces? ClearCorrect uses a series of clear, removable plastic aligners that gently shift your teeth into position over time. This orthodontic option is extremely popular among our Knoxville, TN, patients due to how easy and convenient it is. For patients looking for a complete cosmetic transformation, our dentist can combine ClearCorrect with a smile makeover for life-changing results.

Dental Crowns

Crowns are a versatile treatment option that can address a range of dental concerns. Made of the most durable material and created to withstand tremendous force, dental crowns protect compromised teeth from further damage. These restorations are often used after root canal therapy to restore the biting surface of the tooth. They can even address cosmetic concerns by improving the appearance of a misshapen or discolored tooth. Whether the issue is restorative or cosmetic, our dentist ensures that your restoration will provide years of beauty and strength.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a reliable and long-term solution for patients looking to replace missing teeth. Dr. Kinder can place implants after an examination to determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment. He will then attach a restoration such as a dental crown, bridge, or denture that seamlessly blends in with your smile. Dental implant restorations can restore a patient's ability to eat and speak, all while giving them a healthier and more attractive smile.

Our dentist offers porcelain veneers to help patients achieve the million-dollar smiles they desire. Veneers are ultra-thin shells made of durable porcelain that are bonded to the front teeth for stunning results. They can conceal a range of dental issues, such as cracks, chips, gaps, and stubborn stains. With proper care and maintenance, veneers can last more than 10 years, making them a reliable solution to enhance your smile like never before.

Friendly staff. Always a clean environment. I appreciate they talk with you and educate you on being ‘proactive’ with your individual dental needs. I have NEVER been ‘sold’ something I didn’t need nor do they push ANY additional services that are unnecessary. I appreciate and enjoy everyone that works there!
