Correct Your Smile With Cosmetic Dentistry

Posted on January 21st, 2016

Ed, Eddie, and Edward* are eagerly awaiting Edward’s wedding after Easter.

Each has an issue he would like to address before the big day. All three want their smiles to look their best in the pictures.

Ed would like to fix a problem with some discolored teeth in one part of his mouth. Eddie wants to correct his crooked smile, and Edward wants to smile wide with whiter teeth.

Thankfully, they live near Marietta, GA, which means all three can take advantage of cosmetic services at Atlanta West Dentistry.

* Ed, Eddie, and Edward aren’t real, but the problems they experience have an effect on enormous number of people every year.

Ed’s Discolored Teeth

Ed was a long-time user of chewing tobacco. He had a habit of holding his tobacco in the same side of his mouth every time. (He doesn’t know why. He just did.)

Even though he quit many years ago, the effects of his habit haven’t gone away. He has three teeth that are much darker than the rest of his mouth. What could he do to fix this problem?

One option would be a dental bridge. This could improve the appearance of his teeth and make them stronger at the same time.

The middle tooth in this terrible threesome is the darkest and the most damaged. After asking Ed some questions, his dentist learned that this tooth also causes Ed pain.

By removing that tooth and reshaping the two on either side, Atlanta West Dentistry was able to prepare his teeth for a dental bridge.

A bridge is made of multiple dental crowns, which replace Ed’s yellow, discolored teeth with something that fits in better with the rest of his naturally whiter teeth.

Eddie’s Crooked Smile

Eddie has known for a long time that his teeth were not perfectly straight. It never affected his friendship with Ed and Edward, but it did hurt his confidence.

He has always felt uncomfortable in social situations because of his smile. He wants to change that before Edward’s wedding. The fastest way to fix this issue is with veneers.

Atlanta West Dentistry has DURAthin and e.max veneers. Both of these veneers require minimal preparation, which means that Eddie can get them even faster.

To get his teeth ready for his veneers, the dentist removes a small layer of Eddie’s enamel. Then, the dentist made an impression of Eddie’s teeth so he can get veneers that fit perfectly.

When the veneers are ready, the dentist will bond them onto Eddie’s teeth. His teeth will look straighter than ever, and Eddie’s smile will look be bigger than it’s ever been.

But veneers aren’t just good for people with crooked teeth.

They also can be used to fix smiles with gaps in the middle, teeth that are crowded together, and teeth that have been broken or chipped.

Edward’s Not-So-White Teeth

Edward loves his coffee, and he has the stains on his favorite mugs and on his smile to prove it. Thankfully, Atlanta West Dentistry has two types of teeth whitening to help Edward look his best.

KöR Whitening uses a combination of in-office and take-home treatments to produce a smile that could be up to eight shades whiter in a matter of weeks.

KöR is one of the premier whitening products on the market today. One of the reasons is refrigeration. KöR products are kept cool from the time they are made until they are delivered to the dentist.

Most whitening products start to break down at room temperature, which means they lose some of their power. By keeping its products cool, KöR also keeps more of its ability to clean up Edward’s teeth (and yours, too).

After receiving an in-office treatment, Edward receive a custom-made tray for his teeth. He will wear the tray overnight for two weeks, then return to the office for one more treatment.

If KöR doesn’t sound like the right option for you, we also offer Opalescence Boost. Unlike some other whitening products, Opalescence Boost does not have to be activated by a hot, bright light. In about an hour, however, it will whiten your smile in a way anyone will see.

For patients who prefer to do things themselves, we also have Opalescence Go, a take-home treatment with pre-filled trays. You just pop them in and wear for the recommended time. In a few weeks, they can give you the whiter smile that you want.
