Restorative Dentistry

Crowns and bridges are used to restore teeth that are damaged, or replace a missing tooth or teeth. A crown, also known as a cap, is used to cover the entire damaged tooth. A crown can not only strengthen a tooth, but it can be used to improve a tooth’s appearance, shape and alignment.


Crowns may be recommended to:

  • Replace an existing large filling when there is little tooth structure remaining
  • Restore a fractured tooth
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Restore a discolored or poorly shaped tooth
  • Protect a tooth that has had root canal treatment

A bridge is sometimes recommended to fill the space created by missing teeth. A bridge provides one or more artificial teeth that are cemented into place using the teeth on either side for support. This is an option for filling the space created by a missing tooth. A bridge replaces the missing tooth, both functionally and cosmetically. The materials used may be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material made to match your natural tooth color. The choice of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.


Cosmetic Dentistry

Veneers are a dental procedure in which a covering is placed over the outside (visible area) of the tooth. They are usually only done to the part of the teeth that are visible when talking or smiling.

At least two appointments are needed because the veneers will be fabricated at a dental laboratory. At the first appointment the teeth are prepared, impressions taken, and the teeth are given a temporary covering. When the veneers are back from the laboratory, the temporaries are removed and the veneers are bonded to the teeth. The laboratory fabricated veneers are usually made using porcelain or pressed ceramic, and these materials will look natural and are very esthetic.

The advantage of veneers versus crowns is that much less tooth material is removed. Veneers may be recommended for teeth that have small fillings or small amounts of missing tooth structure if there is enough strong and stable tooth to support the veneer.

Preventative Dentistry

The Georgia Dental Association recommends seeing a patient as early as 1 year old. It starts with a visit to help answer any questions that the parent/parents may have. Our goal is to start developing a comfortable and lifelong dental home for our youngest of patients. Usually, the actual prophylaxis/dental cleaning is not usually performed until approximately age 3.
Routine Checkups/Exams can include some, but not all of these, based on the patient’s age and needs.

  • X-rays
  • Dental Cleanings
  • Oral Hygiene Instruction
  • Fluoride Treatment
  • Sealants
  • Tooth Colored fillings
  • Extractions (For non-restorable teeth or orthodontics)
  • Evaluation of Dental Development
  • Evaluation for Orthodontic Referral


In order to provide nothing but the best to our patients, our office uses state-of-the-art technologies in all our procedures. These new technologies allow us to detect dental concerns at early stages, treat your dental issues with precision, and provide excellent, customized restorations. Our premium dental software system maximizes your time and our office efficiency. When you visit our office you can be confident that you are receiving the finest and most advanced in dental care.

Intraoral Camera

We use small cameras about the size of a pen, called intraoral cameras, to help clearly see the condition of your teeth and gums.
With this advanced technology we can zoom in on small diseased areas, cracks, chips and worn fillings with extreme precision. The full-color images taken with the intraoral camera can be viewed on our computer screen so we can clearly see and diagnose dental problems much earlier than with traditional dental technology. Because images are displayed on our screens, patients will also be able to see areas being worked on and are able to gain a better understanding of dental procedures being performed.

Electronic Claims

Our office utilizes electronic claims processing. This means that rather than sending your dental claim through the mail, it is sent electronically to your insurance company with the click of the button. By filing your claim electronically, information is submitted more efficiently and with fewer errors. This benefits our patients because the turn around time on claims is faster and fewer claims are returned or denied. We are happy to submit your dental claims to your insurance company on your behalf.

Digital X-Rays

X-rays are a focused beam of x-ray particles passed through bone which produce an image on special film, showing the structure through which it passed. This provides the familiar black and white images doctors and dentists use to diagnose problems and disease. Without an x-ray of the whole tooth and supporting bone and gum tissues, there would be no way to detect infection or pathology that requires attention.
In our office we use digital radiography which allows us to take x-rays using up to 90% less radiation than conventional film x-rays. Using this technology, we are able to take an x-ray of your mouth by using a small sensor which records the image of your teeth and sends it to a computer. The result is a highly detailed image of your mouth that can easily be enhanced to better diagnosis dental concerns and determine the very best treatment for each case.
