Are you unhappy with the appearance of your smile? If so, then you're not alone. At the same time, perhaps the idea of having extensive and invasive dental work done to improve your smile just isn't that appealing to you. Here at Peachtree Smile Center, we understand and address these concerns, offering restorative dentistry in the form of crowns and veneers. And many of our patients are thrilled to learn that they can enjoy a smile transformation in as little as one day!
Crowns are typically used as a sort of "cap" to place on an existing tooth that has been damaged or worked on. Most commonly, crowns are used on teeth that have been drilled out as part of completing a root canal procedure. Due to the amount of tooth drilled out, a crown is used to provide added reinforcement to keep the tooth from cracking or becoming otherwise damaged down the road. Crowns can also be used as supports for dental bridges, which are more of a cosmetic procedure used to fill in missing teeth or missing portions of teeth for an improved smile!
Veneers, on the other hand, are shell-like coverings that can be adhered to the front surfaces of your existing teeth. The goal of a veneer is to improve the look of the tooth and thus the appearance of your smile overall. Specifically, veneers can be used to help give you the appearance of straighter and/or whiter teeth, in addition to masking imperfections like discoloration, small chips, and misshapen teeth. Veneers are made of porcelain for a natural look and feel.
Here at Peachtree Smile Center, we pride ourselves in being able to provide same-day veneer and crown restorations from our Atlanta dentist. Rather than using the traditional method of preparing a crown, for example, we use innovative CEREC digital scanning to design and fabricate crowns in a matter of minutes! From there, we're able to place the crowns same-day so you can enjoy your new and improved smile in no time. We also use the same technology to create our porcelain veneers! This not only saves you time, but trips to the dentist's office as well!
In addition to crowns and veneers, we're also proud to offer tooth bonding, tooth-colored fillings, dentures, and even gum re-contouring to help you achieve your ideal smile. Let us help you feel confident in your smile in as little as one dentist visit with our same-day restorative services. We'd love to help!
