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.

Renew your smile with cosmetic dentistry in Athens, AL, also serving Hunstville, AL! Call Dr. Beasley of Beasley Dentistry at (877) 999-6524 to schedule your appointment.

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.
