Considering Cosmetic Dentistry

150 150 Atlanta Smiles and Wellness

Are you putting your best smile forward? Cosmetic dentistry is less about changing your appearance and more about enhancing it. Gone are the days of dental work that looks like part of a costume. Today, there are so many exciting advancements in cosmetic dentistry and new techniques are being developed all the time. The end goal is to leave you with a natural, healthy looking smile.

Cosmetic dentistry can enhance your smile through procedures or surgery on the gums, teeth or both. The health of your gums is just as important as your teeth, though they tend to be an afterthought for some. The appearance of your gums has a big impact on your smile. Gum contouring is a popular cosmetic dental procedure that reduces the gum line to expose more of the teeth for patients with a “gummy” smile. Patients who have receding gum lines can benefit from gum augmentation, which restores some of the gums around the teeth.

There are several cosmetic dentistry options available to enhance the appearance of the teeth. Teeth whitening is the quickest way to give your smile a pain-free lift and works by removing stains on the teeth. Veneers are placed over existing teeth to improve the look of your smile and also to protect the teeth from damage. More extensive procedures, like dental implants, are available for patients who have more severe damage to their teeth. Dental implants are prosthetic teeth and roots that are surgically implanted into the jaw. They give the look and feel of natural teeth, and can dramatically improve a patient’s smile.

Unhappy With Your Smile?

If you are unhappy with your smile, you may feel that you don’t have the time it takes to address the issue. However, it may come as a surprise that some cosmetic dental procedures can be performed in as little as one office visit. Every patient’s needs are different, so schedule a consultation with our cosmetic dentist to determine if you can benefit from a cosmetic quick fix.

Crooked Teeth

If your teeth are crooked or have improper spacing, you may have been putting off fixing them due to how long it would take. The thought of having unsightly braces and spending a lot of time at appointments to adjust and check them could be unappealing. Invisalign is a great alternative for those with mild to moderate imperfections. You won’t see full results right away, but many patients see results in half the time of braces without the unsightly metal mouth.

Stained Teeth

If you want your smile to look refreshed in just one office visit, look no further than teeth whitening. It can even make you look younger! Most of us have mild to moderate stains on our teeth from every day foods and beverages. If you have a smoking habit, chances are your teeth give it away. Though it may take more than one treatment to get the full desired results, you’ll see a noticeable difference after the first visit.

Uneven Teeth

Did you know that many people have teeth that are too long? Not only does it affect your smile, it also can be physically uncomfortable. Most people are unaware that their is a procedure to fix long teeth and give you a more even smile. Teeth recontouring, also known as enameloplasty, works by removing a small amount of enamel from your teeth to make them the same length. The best part? It’s painless and can be performed in one office visit.

Men And Cosmetic Dentistry

Atlanta Cosmetic Dentistry For Men

It is a common misconception that cosmetic procedures are designed for women. Though women make up a large percent of patients, cosmetic dental procedures are not one size fits all. Every procedure is tailored to the individual patient to give them the most natural looking smile possible. More and more men are turning to a cosmetic dentist to enhance their appearance.

If you are athletic, you have probably had your fair share of bumps and bruises. Unfortunately, sports equipment or other players can come into contact with your mouth and cause permanent damage to the teeth. Cracked teeth are not an uncommon part of sports injuries. Some athletes even lose their teeth if they are hit in the mouth too hard. Crowns are a good option for covering individual damaged teeth. When paired with bridges, they can also hide the space left behind by missing teeth. If you want a complete smile makeover, veneers can give you the teeth you have always wanted.

Teeth whitening is also a popular procedure among men who want to enhance their natural smile. Removing stains from the teeth can give a more youthful appearance. Coffee, tea, and some alcoholic beverages, among other things, can stain and dull teeth over time. Cutting them out can prevent further staining but cannot reverse the stains that have already built up. Teeth whitening is one of the quickest cosmetic dental procedures available and can fit into virtually any schedule.

Both men and women can have excess gum tissue around their teeth or have an uneven gumline. For some, this can cause them to be insecure about their smile and appearance. Gum contouring is a cosmetic dental procedure that shapes and removes the gum tissue surrounding the teeth. This exposes more of the tooth to give a less “gummy” smile and create a uniform gumline.
