Cosmetic Dentistry

Smiling is the best way to make a lasting first impression.

Not only is a beautiful smile memorable, but it can also be more powerful than the spoken word, or the way you dress or smell. When it comes to an important job interview or a first date, flashing your pearly whites can be the boost you need to make a great first impression. Everyone deserves to have a smile they feel good about showing off. If you hide your smile or avoid showing it at all, this can have a negative influence on your professional and social life—as well as how others might perceive you.

You have many choices when it comes to cosmetic dental treatments, so there’s no need to hide your smile or wish it could be different. Dr. Martin of Lee Martin DMD offers a full range of cosmetic treatments that will give you a smile you can’t stop showing everyone. You won’t be able to stop smiling after you leave our dental office.

If you are interested in enhancing your smile in Garden City, GA, call our dental practice today to learn more about how we can improve your appearance and enhance your self-esteem. We are always happy to answer any questions, provide photos of different cosmetic dental procedures, and go through the aftercare process so your investment can last a long time.  

What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

General and family dentistry allows us to keep and maintain your oral health; cosmetic dentistry looks at the shape and symmetry of your smile. The science of cosmetic dentistry is beauty and balance. Dr. Martin considers many factors—like the contours of your face, the size of your smile, the shape of your teeth, the color of your enamel and much more to determine the best look for your smile. Cosmetic dentistry is not a one-size-fits-all look, and every patient has unique needs that do not translate to the next patient.  

Some common things cosmetic dentistry is used for include:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Yellow or brown enamel
  • Chipped teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Crooked bite

Cosmetic dentistry might have once been the secret behind Hollywood legends and famous supermodels, but today anyone can achieve a picture-perfect look. Your Garden City, GA dentist, Dr. Martin, is here to help you design the smile to reflect your personality and beauty. Your smile makeover is personal to your specific variables, which means that no one else will have your smile.

How We Can Recreate Your Smile

Smiling is an essential part of how we interact and form a connection with people. Once you start smiling, you experience a positive feedback loop that reinforces your happiness. Hiding your smile can diminish your personal sense of joy, along with your self-esteem and confidence.

If you are embarrassed because your teeth or yellow or stained, Dr. Martin can restore the shade of your teeth. Chipped or cracked teeth can be filled in with tooth-colored resin, and unevenly shaped teeth or gummy smiles can be treated with cosmetic dentistry in Garden City, GA. There's no limit to how we can enhance the radiance of your smile. 

Schedule a consultation with cosmetic dentist Dr. Lee J. Martin to see what cosmetic dental treatments will give you the alluring smile you always wanted.

Cosmetic Bonding

If you have gaps or spaces between your teeth or a chipped tooth, dental bonding might be the answer. This non-invasive cosmetic option can usually improve your smile’s appearance in just one dental appointment.

For cosmetic bonding, we use the same composite resin that is used for tooth-colored fillings to repair teeth that are imperfect or damaged. This procedure can also be used to protect the tooth root if it has become exposed because of gum recession.

Professional Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of our most straightforward and most affordable cosmetic dental treatments in Garden City. Not only is safe for you, you can even get a treatment done during your lunch hour.

If your teeth and gums are healthy, but your smile isn’t as white as it could be, ask Dr. Martin about how to improve the shade of your teeth. Professional teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dentistry option—and with good reason: It’s reliable and effective. You can achieve dramatic results in a short amount of time.

We offer two methods for teeth whitening at our Garden City, GA practice: in-office and at-home systems. For immediate results, our in-office treatment gives you a smile that is whiter and brighter in just about the time of the average lunch hour. Walk out of our office with whiter teeth than when you walked in!

If you prefer to whiten in the privacy of your own home, you can use our convenient at-home system. It comes with custom trays that are designed to fit over your teeth perfectly. We will also provide you with professional-strength whitening gel. You can use the trays for touch-up treatments in the future to keep your smile its whitest and brightest.

Did you know that most people correlate white teeth with youth and vigor? Yellow and discolored teeth happen naturally as we age, which is why many patients feel and look younger after a professional teeth whitening procedure.

Porcelain Veneers

If you have teeth that are resistant to teeth whitening or are other imperfect, porcelain veneers might be the answer. These wafer-thin tooth covers fit on your teeth—those that show when you smile—and can cover up a multitude of problems such as gaps, chips, and discoloration. They can even camouflage misalignment, enabling you to avoid orthodontic treatment.

Many of your favorite Hollywood celebrities have likely had their smiles boosted through the magic of porcelain veneers. Caring for veneers is easy: brush and floss as you usually would and stay current with bi-annual trips to the dentist for check-ups and cleanings. With proper care, they can last for many years.

How the Process Works

Cosmetic dentistry procedures are reliable and can transform your appearance in ways you never imagined. Dental crowns can strengthen and protect damaged teeth, porcelain veneers can address crooked without the use of braces, and tooth-colored fillings can replace the look of dark metal fillings.

No matter what your particular dental cosmetic concern is, there are many options that can address it. After you call Lee Martin, DMD, to schedule a dental appointment, Dr. Martin will sit with you and go over your smile needs, time frame, and budget. It’s vital that our patients understand the process and aftercare of each dental procedure since some treatments—like porcelain veneers—are permanent and should be done after a full understanding of the process.
