While many dentists are focused on the health of the smile, some also want to ensure patients have a beautiful smile to show off to others. Cosmetic dentistry used to be for the Hollywood elite, but now, everyone can enjoy improvements to their smiles that look natural and last many years!
Cosmetic dentistry encompasses a number of different treatments. Patients interested in a “smile makeover” or full mouth reconstruction may combine a variety of these treatments to achieve their desired results.
Some of the cosmetic dentistry procedures available to Social Circle, GA area patients through Social Circle Dental include:
• Dental bridges
• Dental crowns
• Dentures (full and partial)
• Dental fillings
• Porcelain veneers
• Professional teeth whitening
• Dental implants
• Composite resin bonding
To determine the most appropriate treatments for the smile, Dr. Jones will start with a full examination. Dr. Jones may take a series of x-rays and discuss with patients what displeases them about the appearance of their smile. He can then make suggestions based on this information to help patients feel attractive and stop hiding their smiles behind their hands.
Full mouth reconstruction, or a smile makeover, is typically achieved by combining two or more of these procedures. Patients may want to work out a custom treatment plan if they intend to make dramatic changes to their smiles and address several issues at once. Our practice also offers sedation dentistry to make extensive treatments more manageable and comfortable for our patients.

The benefits of esthetic dentistry
Although esthetic dentistry, often called cosmetic dentistry, focuses on how attractive your smile can be, it can offer several benefits to your overall health and well-being. We notice confidence increases when a patient has his or her teeth whitened or walks out of our office with a beautiful porcelain veneer. A person with an attractive smile reaps several benefits. According to studies, the smile is one of the first features a person notices when meeting someone. Smiling releases endorphins, which boosts the mood. A confident smile might help you secure a job. By keeping the smile healthy, you can prevent oral conditions such as tooth decay. You also can prevent gum disease, the leading cause of tooth loss among adults ages 65 and older.
Exploring the options
Esthetic procedures include teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, crowns, inlays, onlays, dental implants, and bridges. We offer at-home teeth whitening treatment that allows you to gradually whiten your teeth and attain the smile of your dreams. Porcelain veneers are wafer thin shells placed on teeth that are discolored, misshapen, misaligned, or gapped. Crowns, inlays, and onlays can be fabricated in a single appointment by utilizing CEREC (Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic) technology and are used to treat decayed or damaged teeth. Dental implants are titanium rods placed into the jawbone during surgery that are eventually paired with porcelain crowns to restore beauty to the smile. Bridges contain artificial teeth and crowns to restore missing teeth.
