Popular treatments offered at our North Atlanta dental office
1. Dental veneers
Veneers are thin porcelain shells that have the shape and color of teeth. They are an easy way to cover up chipped, slightly crooked or discolored teeth.
The process of placing veneers is fairly simple. The dentist makes a mold of the patient’s teeth and sends it to the lab. At the lab, the mold is used to make dental veneers that are custom-made to fit over the problem teeth.
2. Dental caps
Patients who have damaged teeth should look to dental crowns to give them a bright, even smile. Dental caps are custom-made to fit over a damaged tooth like a cap, hence the name. By encasing a problem tooth, caps cover up the tooth’s imperfections to improve the aesthetics of a person’s smile.
3. Teeth whitening
Although they taste or feel great, some fun things stain the teeth. Coffee, red wine and cigarettes are the leading causes of stained teeth. To reverse the discoloration that they cause, many people choose to whiten their teeth.
In-office teeth whitening is done in a single session or multiple sessions at our North Atlanta dental office. Depending on a person’s unique situation, a dentist will recommend the option that will give the best results.
In some cases, the dentist may also dispense at-home teeth whitening treatments that whiten the teeth. Usually, the teeth are bleached over the course of a week or two.
Although it is best known for treating wrinkles and laugh lines, Botox can be used to improve a gummy smile. Sometimes, a gummy smile happens when the upper lip pulls away from the gums. By administering Botox to the upper lip, a dentist will make sure that the lips cover the gums, even when a person smiles.
As a person ages, they produce less collagen than they did before. As a result, wrinkles form on the face, and the skin starts to sag. That is where Juvederm comes in.
Juvederm stimulates the body to produce collagen, which fills out the face while getting rid of sagging and wrinkles. The active ingredient of this treatment is hyaluronic acid, which is produced naturally by the body.
Unfortunately, as we age, our bodies produce less of this substance, which is why we need to step in and give our bodies the hyaluronic acid needed to produce collagen at a higher rate.
