Have you ever looked in the mirror and wished you could correct a few tooth-related issues? Cosmetic dentistry services offered in Athens, AL, also serving Hunstville, AL, by Dr. Brad Beasley of Beasley Dentistry can help you makeover your smile.

Cosmetic dentistry services and treatments improve the function and appearance of your smile. If you've lost a tooth, want to change the appearance of a few teeth, or need to strengthen or restore a damaged tooth, one of these choices may be right for you:

Dental Implants: Restoring missing teeth with dental implants offers a long-term tooth loss solution. Small titanium posts implanted in your jawbone bond to the bone, becoming a permanent part of your jaw. The posts act as roots for your new teeth and are topped with dental crowns to complete the restoration of your missing teeth.

Bonding: If you have chipped or cracked teeth your dentist may recommend this treatment. Using a dental bonding material, your dentist will fill and reshape your damaged teeth. 

Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening is an excellent option if your teeth have become dull and stained. Whitening can lighten teeth by three to eight shades and lasts for several years.

Veneers: Veneers offer a simple, yet ingenious, way to conceal tooth imperfections. Thin tooth-shaped shells cemented to the fronts of your teeth hide chips, cracks, discolorations, uneven surfaces, and other flaws. Veneers can also change the shape of teeth, add length to short teeth, close gaps, or whiten all of your teeth.

Why do gummy smiles occur?

Gummy smiles can develop for several reasons. Sometimes genetics is to blame for the excess gum tissue, while other factors such as poor oral hygiene can also cause gummy smiles. While extra gum tissue certainly won’t impact your oral health, it can make you feel self-conscious about your smile. This is why people turn to our Athens and Huntsville, AL, dental team for cosmetic dentistry. Through laser treatment, we can correct gummy smiles.

How does laser therapy treat gummy smiles?

We know that many of our patients would rather avoid invasive procedures and surgeries whenever possible. While there are surgical techniques to correct gummy smiles, we believe that by offering our patients laser treatment to correct this same dental imperfection, that we can help more patients get the smiles they want without being afraid of the procedure. Laser treatment is minimally invasive and helps Dr. Beasley and his team easily remove excess gum tissue to reveal more of your healthy, beautiful teeth that have been hiding underneath.

Before the procedure begins, we will numb the area with local anesthesia so that you don’t feel any discomfort. From there, we will direct the laser over the gum tissue that we wish to remove or reshape. Through laser technology, we can also improve the overall shape and symmetry of the gum line. With this treatment, you’ll get instant results.

What are the benefits of laser therapy?

If you want to correct your gummy smile it’s important to recognize the benefits of laser gum treatment. Some benefits include,

  • Less post-procedural bleeding, swelling, and pain
  • Faster recovery time
  • A less invasive procedure with little to no risk for complications
  • More precise technology that helps remove tissue quickly and easily

You want straighter teeth, but you don't like the idea of wearing metal braces. If so, you're not alone. Many teens and adults are searching for an alternative to traditional braces. If you live in Huntsville, consider getting Invisalign. Dr. R. Beasley at Beasley Family and Implant Dentistry can help you achieve straighter teeth that help you smile with more confidence. Keep reading to learn more about Invisalign.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a set of clear plastic teeth aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. They are a good alternative to braces because they are transparent and removable. This means they provide you with the benefit of straighter teeth without the hassle of traditional braces.

Traditional braces are made with metal, wire and rubber bands. As soon as you open your mouth, people notice that you are wearing braces. They're impossible to miss. In contrast, Invisalign aligners are clear, making them less noticeable.

When you wear traditional braces, you have to be careful with the foods you eat. If not, you can damage your braces. When you wear Invisalign, you remove the aligners whenever you want to eat your favorite foods. It doesn't matter if you want to nosh on some popcorn or eat something gooey. After you finish eating, you simply place the Invisalign back inside your mouth.

Candidates for Invisalign

If you live in Huntsville and are interested in Invisalign, speak with a dentist to see if clear aligners are right for you. Invisalign is usually a good option if you have:

  • a mild overbite
  • a mile underbite
  • slightly crooked teeth
  • overcrowded teeth
  • gaps between your teeth
  • teeth that are positioned incorrectly when you close your mouth

How Invisalign Works

When your orthodontist decides that you are a good candidate for Invisalign, he or she will create custom-made clear trays for your teeth. The orthodontist will show you the proper way to place them inside your mouth and how to remove them as well. He or she will provide information on how to care for your Invisalign and how long you need to wear them throughout the day.

Every two weeks, you will receive a new set of custom-made trays. These various sets of trays work to gradually move your teeth into a straighter position. Most adults only need to wear Invisalign for about 12 months, depending on their teeth's condition. Teens may need to wear them for a longer period of time.

Schedule Your Appointment

Are you ready for straighter teeth? Invisalign may be the option that helps you achieve your goal. Schedule an appointment with Dr. R. Beasley at Beasley Family and Implant Dentistry in Athens and serving the Huntsville, AL. Give his office a call at (888) 860-5114.

Are your teeth damaged, dull, or oddly shaped? If so, veneers, a cosmetic dentistry treatment offered by your dentist, Dr. R. Brad Beasley of Beasley Family & Implant Dentistry in Athens, AL (serving the residents of Huntsville) can revitalize your smile—read on to learn how.

Veneers hide minor imperfections

Veneers keep tooth flaws out of sight. The tooth-shaped shells are no thicker than a contact lens yet hide imperfections very effectively. Veneers are often made of porcelain, a durable material that looks like tooth enamel and reflects light in the same way that enamel does.

The restorations are created from an impression of your mouth and attached with dental cement. Unlike some other types of cosmetic dentistry treatments, veneers don't require significant changes to your tooth structure. In fact, your dentist may only need to remove a tiny amount of tooth enamel to ensure that the restorations fit perfectly.

Veneers are the perfect solution to many smile problems

Veneers make it possible to completely change the shape of a tooth. They're frequently used to make crooked or twisted teeth look perfectly straight or improve the appearance of an oddly shaped tooth.

The restorations also conceal minor damage, such as shallow cracks or chips, and make uneven surfaces look perfectly smooth. Adding veneers can keep discolorations out of sight, whether they're due to trauma, tetracycline use, or other causes.

Would you like to close the gap between your front teeth but don't want to wear braces? Veneers offer an alternate option if you have slight spaces between your teeth (large spaces do still require braces, however).

If you want a movie-star bright smile, then there's no better option than veneers. Available in many shades of white, veneers provide a long-lasting way to keep your smile bright and white.

When general wear-and-tear or grinding shortens your teeth, veneers restore their normal length. If your teeth have worn down due to grinding while you sleep, your visit to the Huntsville dental office may include an impression for a nightguard. The guard protects your veneers and your teeth from damage.

Losing a tooth as an adult was never something that you expected to happen. Unfortunately, everything from a traumatic injury to gum disease can lead to permanent tooth loss. Fortunately, our Athens, AL, dentist serving Huntsville, AL, offers up a restoration that doesn’t just look and feel like a real tooth but also could permanently replace your missing tooth for life. Find out more about dental implants with us!

How does a dental implant work?

A dental implant is an oral prosthetic that is designed to replace a single tooth. Several implants can also be placed to support multiple false teeth such as a bridge or dentures.

An implant is a small post or screw made from a biocompatible metal such as titanium that is surgically placed into a drilled hole in the jawbone to replace your missing tooth’s roots. An implant serves as a permanent foundation from which to hold one or more false teeth in place.

What are the benefits of getting a dental implant?

A dental implant functions just like a real tooth; therefore, your new restoration will both look and feel just like a real tooth once it’s fully placed. The metal implant will become a permanent part of the jawbone as the bone and tissue fuse together and integrate with the structure over the course of several months after surgery. Once the implant and jawbone become one your implant could last the rest of your life with the proper oral care and maintenance.

Most people dealing with tooth loss also experience trouble speaking or chewing as a result. If you are looking for an artificial tooth that will make it easier to chew all of your favorite foods again or talk without dealing with a lisp or other problems then a dental implant may be the best option for you.

Bone loss is a serious and permanent complication of untreated tooth loss. This is why it’s so important that you see your Athens and Huntsville, AL, general dentist right away for treatment. By placing your implant not long after tooth loss we can prevent serious and long-term bone loss.

If you are interested in getting dental implants then call North Alabama Center for Cosmetic & General Dentistry today to schedule your free consultation at our Athens, AL, office. We are proud to provide comprehensive dental care to Athens and Huntsville, AL, as well as the surrounding areas.
