Good dentistry is meant to last a lifetime, but through the years, new techniques and materials present more natural looking and functioning options for restorative and cosmetic dental procedures. Buford cosmetic and family dentist Dr. Alla Brown can create a treatment plan to address old dental work, offering patients both a stronger, more functional smile and the smile makeover they have always wanted!
Replacing dental work for a smile makeover:
Old, dark amalgam dental fillings can now be replaced with “white fillings” that will closely match a patient’s natural teeth and brighten their smile while also providing a more secure and durable filling that will help to maintain long term oral health. This is especially effective for fillings in the “smile zone”.
For patients with old dental crowns that have yellowed over time or become loose, Dr. Brown offers replacement with porcelain dental crowns. Porcelain restorations are thinner and durable, providing a more comfortable and natural looking result that will also be stain resistant when compared to older materials used in this type of dentistry. Porcelain dental crowns can offer a complete smile makeover!
Slipping, poor fitting dentures can now be replaced with implant secured dentures in a procedure known as All-on-Four. A custom fit denture will be held in place with four or more dental implants, allowing patients to eat and speak normally without concerns over a slipping denture. There is no need for daily adhesives either! For many patients, this can dramatically improve their quality of life on a daily basis.
If you have dental work that needs “updating” or replacement, schedule a consultation with Dr. Brown at Lanier Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Buford to discuss your options and achieve your cosmetic goals. Check out the Smile Gallery for before and after photos of Dr. Browns’ patients.
