General dentistry is related to your health. Cosmetic dentistry has to do with your appearance. If a cosmetic dentistry procedure improves the functionality of your mouth, that is all well and good, but it is not the main purpose. A responsible dentist, though, will not consider you for cosmetic treatments if your general dental health is not good. So if you have cavities, gum disease, or other dental health issues, they will have to be corrected before you can consider cosmetic dentistry.
You do not have to consider it if your dental health is good and you are happy with your smile. The key indicator, though, is the last four words in that sentence – “happy with your smile.” If you dislike your smile, then you might feel self-conscious or embarrassed. Cosmetic dentistry can give you the smile you want so that you will no longer feel uncomfortable about smiling.
Well, your Mom’s dentist probably wasn’t trained in cosmetic dentistry procedures. Few dentists were, back in the day. Today, though, dentists know about all manner of treatments that can improve your smile.
Periodontal Disease is a quiet disease that begins with little or no symptoms. It is caused by bacteria that surrounds the teeth and enters the gums. The immediate condition is known as ‘gingivitis’. The gums become irritated, inflamed and often bleed. If not properly treated, the condition worsens. Noticeable symptoms now appear. They include:
Back to veneers, they are just a cosmetic dentistry treatment that involves installing tooth-like porcelain shells over unsightly teeth. The length, shape and color of your teeth can be altered using dental veneers. Crowns are another way of correcting dental imperfections when veneers are not sufficient to correct the dental issues.

In the world of dentistry, bonding is an option that is put to use by both cosmetic and restorative dentists. This is because it is a remarkably strong and flexible compound that is colored to match a patient’s tooth. It is a tooth colored resin applied and bonded to the tooth, enhancing its appearance even as it provides amazing strength and repair.
It is a good treatment option for those with broken, chipped, mildly gapped, or deeply stained teeth resistant to whitening. It can be used as a filling material for decay, to improve the length or shape of a tooth and other cosmetic reasons. Though it is often described in terms of cosmetic use, the bonding procedure is a fantastic option for a wide variety of patient needs.
If you want to fix a minor cosmetic issue in your smile, then come see the dental team at Kurz Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. Dr. Elena Kurz can improve the appearance of your teeth with dental bonding which whitens, alters shape, and repairs chips. Call our dentist today about dental bonding in Dacula, Georgia .
Dental bonding is a simple, conservative way to improve the appearance of your smile. During the bonding process, our skilled dentist places a composite resin material directly onto the tooth structure. Because the resin is malleable and putty-like when first applied, we can shape and sculpt it to fit your tooth and correct flaws in the tooth’s appearance. The composite resin is then hardened, trimmed, and polished to provide a lasting, aesthetic restoration for your smile. Dental bonding typically requires just one visit to our welcoming dental office, and because this treatment usually necessitates little to no tooth preparation, you can rest assured that your visit will be comfortable and painless.
Our dentist may recommend dental bonding in order to close gaps and spaces between teeth, improve misshapen teeth, lighten stained or discolored teeth, or restore chipped or cracked teeth. We will use a shade of composite resin that matches the original color of your teeth for a natural-looking effect. If you would prefer, we can use a slightly lighter shade to whiten the color of your teeth. For more information on cosmetic dental bonding and how we can help you improve your smile, we welcome you to contact us today.

The days of amalgam or metal fillings have ended, and instead of losing a great deal of a tooth’s structure in order to eliminate decay, modern dentists have a much more conservative option thanks to inlays and onlays. These are perfect for a patient who has decay but who does not need a crown or traditional filling or who has damaged a tooth but does not need a large restoration.
They are made of tooth-colored resin that is bonded to the treated tooth. The difference between them is quite subtle. Inlays are set within the tooth while onlays also sit in the tooth as well as replacing one or more cusps. They are incredibly strong and a fantastic option for those with cosmetic issues to the uppermost portion of the tooth.
In the world of cosmetic dentistry there are many impressive solutions to a wide range of issues. In our office, patients can obtain everything from dental crowns to cover unsightly or deeply damaged teeth to veneers or Lumineers that also cover and conceal teeth that are misshapen, stained, chipped or damaged. When patients need more than a single treatment to address their cosmetic dentistry issues, it is called a smile makeover.

These are, quite accurately, new smiles that can just snap over your natural teeth. Custom made to your mouth, a Snap-On Smile hides crooked, gapped, stained or unsightly teeth easily and comfortably.
Can you deal with a multiple of cosmetic dental issues with a single solution? If you are dealing with stained teeth, chipped or cracked teeth or teeth that are unevenly spaced or sized, then you may find the ideal answer in porcelain veneers and Lumineers. They are frequently referred to as an instant smile makeover, and if you are a candidate for them, you could see an entirely new smile in just one or two visits to our cosmetic dentist.
Many of our patients are upset that their perfectly healthy teeth and gums still leave them feeling unconscious because they are also a bit discolored. That is why we offer teeth whitening options as part of our cosmetic dentistry solutions.

Available in the office and in a take home kit, it will give amazing results in a single visit.
