How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Turn Back the Hands of Time

Woman Smiling After Receiving Dental Crowns Marietta GA

Although aging is inevitable, it is rarely welcomed. As we get older, our appearance is threatened with gray hair, wrinkles, sagging skin, age spots and other unsightly features across the face. While some aging adults don’t mind the investment in facial plastic surgery or repeated rejuvenation treatments, others may be interested in another anti-aging secret: cosmetic dentistry. A white, balanced and attractive smile can instantly make you look younger, healthier and even more energetic. The best part; most cosmetic dentistry services involve minimal sacrifice to your time and budget compared to plastic surgery.

Here are some cosmetic dental treatments that can address common aging concerns:

Professional Teeth Whitening for Stained, Dingy Teeth

Many adults experience yellow and stained teeth as they get older. Not only does the natural aging process cause a loss of brilliance to your teeth, but years of consuming dark colored foods and drinks can greatly contribute. Whether you’ve had a coffee habit or a nicotine habit, professional teeth whitening can help you regain a whiter and more youthful smile. Many professional whitening systems can lighten your teeth by several shades in just an hour!

Dental Implants for Jowls/Sagging Cheeks

For those that have missing teeth, particularly the back molars, you may suffer from gradual hallowed or sunken cheek at your lower face. This is due to the fact that your jawbone has lost its density and structure. By getting dental implants (and perhaps bone grafting as well) you can rebuild the foundation of your smile as well as improve the appearance of jowls.

Porcelain Veneers for Thinning Lips

The lips, like other features of your face, lose collagen as you age. While lip fillers can certainly restore lost volume in this area, the injections will need to be repeated on a periodic basis. Another solution to giving your lips a subtle plump is to get porcelain veneers. Not only do veneers correct a wide variety of aesthetic concerns within your teeth, but they can push out your lips in the slightest, most attractive way. Veneers are thin shells that sit on top of your front tooth surfaces, the added volume can consequently make your lips fuller. In addition, they may also help reduce fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth!

These are just a few of the ways that cosmetic and restorative dentistry can turn back the hands of time. Crowns, bonding and bridges are other excellent solutions that can undoubtedly make you look younger and more attractive. To learn how a qualified cosmetic dentist can be your answer to a more youthful you, contact Gilreath Family Dentistry today!

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
