Consider the benefits of a smile makeover in Smyrna, Georgia. At Smyrna Dental, our team fully rejuvenates and restores smiles. Led by Dr. David Lamothe, we are focused on providing patients with beautiful smiles that they can be proud of. Using state-of-the-art treatments and high-quality materials, we have transformed patients’ overall well-being and lives by transforming the appearance of their smiles. Some patients may desire cosmetic improvement for a few areas, whereas others seek a complete reconstruction or makeover.
There are a number of treatments and procedures used to rejuvenate a smile. We’ve listed a few options that may be used in combination with each other to make over this central feature of your face:
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain bonded over the front surfaces of the natural teeth to disguise imperfections, including stains, chips, and gaps. They are a fast cosmetic treatment that can make a dramatic change in a short period of time.
Dental crowns are used to protect, cover, and restore teeth. Those teeth that are weakened by disease or trauma may benefit from the placement of a dental crown, which covers the tooth with dental materials such as porcelain. This prosthetic crown keeps the tooth from experiencing further breakage. Crowns are also used to cover up cosmetic imperfections and to rebuild a single tooth or a few teeth in a dental bridge.
Missing natural teeth can be replaced with a dental bridge, which is a porcelain restoration that is held in place by adjacent “anchor” teeth. Bridges may be used to replace one tooth or groups of teeth. So, they present a great alternative to removable partial dentures.
Instead of using silver amalgam fillings that are extremely noticeable within the smile, Dr. Lamothe and his team apply composite, tooth-colored fillings to treat cavities and restore otherwise damaged teeth.
Whitening the teeth can be done simply, effectively, safely, and quickly with an in-office treatment or a take-home whitening kit, both available via Smyrna Dental.
Dr. Lamothe offers both full and partial dentures at his practice. Full dentures can be made to fit the contours of the mouth precisely. Such precision planning helps to hold the new teeth in place and to reduce problems such as sores and discomfort caused by ill-fitting dentures.
