Cosmetic services that we provide include:
If your teeth have a yellowish appearance or are stained from years of drinking coffee, tea or cola, teeth whitening can give you a brighter smile, easily and affordably. Our practice offers in-office and take-home teeth whitening options:
In-office Teeth Whitening: The Zoom!® Whitening system allows us to whiten your teeth while you relax in the dental chair. We gently apply a specially formulated light-activated gel to your teeth to remove old stains and whiten tooth surfaces. This process takes about an hour, and in most cases, patients leave our office with a smile that is several shades lighter.
At-home Teeth Whitening: Wearing custom mouth trays designed to hold whitening gel for about 30 mins a day can lighten your teeth by several shades in just a few applications.
Dental porcelain veneers are thin facings that adhere to natural tooth surfaces to cosmetically enhance overall smile appearance. They are an ideal solution for correcting imperfections such as chips, discoloration, and asymmetry in otherwise healthy teeth. Once adhered to the teeth, these shell-like coverings are incredibly durable and stain resistant.
Crowns, Implant Crowns, Bridges & Dentures
Missing, broken teeth and loose dentures can be unattractive and, if left untreated, may cause additional problems with the surrounding teeth, tissues or jaw. The science of dentistry continues to provide dentists with stronger, more natural-looking materials for dental restorations to correct these types of conditions. Our dentists can design porcelain crowns, dental implant crowns, bridges and custom esthetic dentures to return health, function and beauty to your smile.
Cosmetic Bonding & White Fillings
Composite bonding procedures are often a cost-effective approach for minor restorations. Tooth-colored, "white" composite plastic filling materials can be bonded to anterior (front) teeth to hide flaws such as chips or gaps, or used in posterior (back) teeth to restore small areas of decay or damage.
The first step to changing your smile is a personal consultation and complete dental examination at our Watkinsville/Athens family and cosmetic dental practice. You and your dentist will carefully plan your new smile together. Contact us today to get started!
