Smiles Forever of Gardendale

This can be anything done to correct imperfections in the appearance of the smile. Anyone who is unhappy with their smile can have it fixed. The upper teeth show, usually, only when smiling, while the lower teeth remain hidden. This is reversed when talking, with the upper teeth remaining hidden while the lower teeth show. The color, alignment, spacing as well as regularity of the teeth are the characteristics that give the overall appearance. Any of these can be repaired to give a stunning look to the mouth.

We offer a wide variety of cosmetic options. Some of these options are whitening, smile design, re contouring of the shape of the teeth, veneers, bonding, and all ceramic/porcelain crowns.

Over the year’s technology has advanced greatly; you no longer have to wear a temporary crown for 2 weeks in between prepping the tooth and getting the permanent crown back in from an outside lab! We have recently got a brand-new milling machine from Cerec that will be processing the crown while you are in the chair! No matter how much you love seeing us this will help with you cut down on visits!

Dermal Fillers

For those looking to control the signs of aging, enhance lips and soften frown lines. Fillers can restore your skins youthfulness that is lost with age.

Veneers

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

The direct technique usually involves placing composite resin on the outside of the tooth using bonding. This method is usually referred to as bonding.

The indirect technique usually involves two appointments 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. In two to three weeks 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 are very esthetic.

The advantage of veneers versus crowns is that much less tooth material is removed, and the procedure is generally less uncomfortable. Veneers are recommended for teeth that have large fillings or little tooth structure.
