While Dr. Mueller has invested considerable time and resources in many fields of dentistry, implant dentistry is his favorite! He loves the satisfaction of replacing a tooth in the most functional and natural way possible. He was one of the first general dentists in the Kitsap Peninsula to get the training and technology to offer this service. With over 600 implants successfully placed, your care is in good hands. Couple this experience with the technology offered by 3D imaging and the on-site lab technician, Dave Weatherill of CBI dental, and you are guaranteed to love the result!
A smile makeover is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve your appearance. A beautiful, bright, healthy smile can increase self confidence and overall life satisfaction. Cosmetic dentistry can encompass things such as tooth-colored fillings, dental implants, or crowns. We have many options, so please call us for a free cosmetic consultation.
Veneers are very thin porcelain pieces that are custom made to adhere directly to the front of teeth without grinding or shaving. Transform your smile without drilling on your natural teeth!
In the hands of a highly skilled dentist, porcelain laminates can provide you with an incredibly natural, beautiful smile. They are virtually undetectable and can dramatically improve your appearance. They are durable and long-lasting when compared to other cosmetic treatments.
Do you wear traditional dentures or have a mouthful of missing or failing teeth? Eat what you want again, smile, laugh, and look and feel years younger with our cosmetic dentures and implant-supported dentures.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
One of the services that Dr. Chris Mueller offers may be just what you need to stop snoring and breathe thoroughly and finally achieve a peaceful and restful sleep!
The Academy of Sleep Medicine has designated “…sleep oral appliances as the number one treatment avenue for mild and moderate sleep apnea and snoring.” Studies have shown oral appliances reduce the number of sleep apnea episodes by 60%. With this solution sufficient oxygen is able to reach the lungs by keeping the air passage open through the night.
Many are excited to see a non-surgical treatment solution that can replace the CPAP, a breathing solution that many cannot tolerate. These dental appliances are ideal because they are small, comfortable and effective.

Dr. Mueller has been a "preferred provider" in Port Orchard for invisalign since 2010 and as a general dentist with extensive invisalign experience he brings two different perspectives to your treatment. Being able to see his patients both during orthodontic treatment and long after it's conclusion, he is able to plan your treatment with the best long term results for your smile and your bite.
How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign straightens your teeth using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. They gradually and gently shift your teeth into place. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference to your daily life.
Gum disease is treated by carefully removing the bacteria and substances that form in the pockets around the teeth. The removal of this material occurs on a microscopic level and requires great skill. Our dental team has had advanced training to effectively remove all of the bacteria.
The above pictures are of Dr Mueller's father. He had silver fillings placed in the military which now were allowing the teeth to crack. We replaced them with bonded porcelain in 2003 and they still look great!
Dr. Mueller strives to conserve your own healthy tooth structure whenever possible. For those who have worn or cracked teeth, or who have large silver fillings, Dr. Mueller recommends porcelain onlays. The porcelain bonds directly to the tooth enamel which means it is durable and beautiful. All of Dr. Mueller's family and dental team members have porcelain onlays in their mouths since we believe it is the best option available to protect your smile.
From toddlers to the elderly, our skilled dental team is familiar with the unique needs of every patient, no matter their age. Our goal is to help them develop great oral habits that will last them a lifetime.

Many everyday things like coffee, tea and wine can significantly dull teeth. Smile-whitening enables us to significantly brighten your smile for that dazzling white smile you deserve.
Plastic whitening trays will be made from models of your teeth. You will then place a special whitening gel in each tray and wear the trays in your mouth for several hours per day. (Many patients wear their trays after dinner and before bed.) A significant change in tooth color is usually seen in just four to six weeks.
Snap-On Smile® is an affordable, non-invasive, and completely reversible cosmetic removable arch that fits over your existing teeth. It can easily and painlessly give you a beautiful smile. Call us for a free consultation.
Digital 3D Imaging
Dr. Mueller decided that to provide the best care for his patients he needed to invest in the latest technology. The 3D "iCAT" CT scanner allows us to view the important anatomy related to implants such as thickness of bone, nerves and sinuses. This allows us to safely place implants with precision that are the correct size and in the right place. We also can also often avoid additional bone grafting procedures with this technology. This has become so integral that Dr. Mueller doesn't know how he used to do implants without it!
