Cosmetic Dentistry in Athens AL

Beautiful woman smiling after her cosmetic procedures at Singing River Dentistry in Athens, ALCosmetic dentistry is a specialized branch of dentistry that focuses on the beauty of our patient's smiles.

Cosmetic dentistry includes such services as crowns, Invisalign, dental bonding, dental veneers, teeth whitening, gum reshaping, enamel shaping, and more.

Patients in need of cosmetic dentistry procedures may have chipped teeth, cracked teeth, crowded or spaced teeth, discoloration, stains, or misshapen or misaligned teeth. Repairing these issues with modern cosmetic dentistry beautifies the smile, gives our patients confidence, and enhances their wellbeing overall.

But it's not only about aesthetics. A beautiful smile is also a healthy smile. Cosmetic dentistry and general dental health support one another. General dentistry practices, such as regular teeth cleanings, play a pivotal role in maintaining a beautiful smile. Misaligned teeth are more difficult to clean and can result in stains, discoloration, and cavities forming.

Our dentists here at Singing River Dentistry in Athens are experts at the synergy between cosmetic and general dentistry. We use the best procedures to fit each individual patient's needs to create and maintain beautiful smiles.

Can I Get Cosmetic Dental Work Done if I Have Gum Disease?

There any limitations for patients who wish to have cosmetic dentistry treatments. Patients are evaluated by their individual needs, but they must have healthy teeth and gums prior to cosmetic dental treatments. Those with cavities or gum disease must treat those issues before undergoing any aesthetic procedures. It is also important to note that cosmetic dental procedures are often not covered by insurance because they are deemed non-essential, with few exceptions.

Porcelain Crown

A porcelain crown is a tooth-shaped and color-matched cap that restores a decayed, broken, chipped, or weakened tooth. Crowns are a refined and versatile solution that are a huge part of cosmetic dentistry. Crowns are most often used once a tooth has deteriorated past the point of filling it. A porcelain crown blends in perfectly with the natural teeth because they are carefully designed to be seamless in each patient's individual smile.

Porcelain is revered for its durability and resemblance to natural enamel. This ensures that the restoration enhances the aesthetic appeal of the smile, as well as the function of the tooth. A crown is an ideal choice to repair fractures, extensive decay, or discoloration. Porcelain crowns are strong and resilient. Dental crowns are also made from metal, ceramic, and composite resin. The material used for the crown usually depends on patient preference, and cost. Crowns last for five to 15 years with diligent care.


Invisalign is a revolution in orthodontic care, and has redefined the approach to teeth straightening. This innovative system is a discreet and flexible alternative to conventional braces. It utilizes a set of clear, removable aligners customized to each individual patient's dental structure. Invisalign aligners are transparent, and nearly invisible, it's all in the name. This solves the problem of visual concerns that some patients have with traditional metal braces.

Beyond their subtle appearance, Invisalign aligners provide the convenience of being removable. Eating, brushing, and flossing are much easier than with traditional metal braces. Teeth are gradually adjusted with these aligners for a more comfortable experience, and a straight, healthy smile. An aligned smile is easier to clean and maintain, so this cosmetic dental treatment benefits our patient's general dental health as well. In addition, Invisalign gives patients more confidence in their new smile. A common question for Invisalign treatment is "How long will it take?" Patients can achieve results in as little as six months. Invisalign is a cutting-edge, patient-friendly solution used in cosmetic dentistry.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a versatile and minimally invasive cosmetic dentistry procedure. It is a precise, efficient way to transform the appearance of teeth. This technique is the application of a color matched resin material to the tooth's surface. Is it then sculpted and bonded meticulously, using a special light to harden the material.

Dental bonding is an effective remedy for various cosmetic dentistry issues, such as chipped or cracked teeth, gaps, discoloration, and minor misalignments. Beyond the beauty benefits, dental bonding improves dental function. It reinforces weakened teeth. The integration of the resin with the natural tooth is seamless, and creates a durable and beautiful result. Dental bonding is a transformative solution for a radiant smile.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are ultra-thin, custom shells that attach to the front of the tooth surface to cover discoloration, chips, breaks, cracks, or smaller than average teeth. Veneers are made of a porcelain or composite resin material. They are bonded to the front surface of teeth, conceal imperfections, and enhance the overall appearance of a patient's smile. Dental veneers are a versatile solution for an array of cosmetic concerns including discoloration, uneven spacing, chips, and minor misalignments.

Some patients receive one single veneer to cover a chipped tooth, and others receive six to eight veneers to cover all of the top front teeth visible in their smile. One of their standout features is the ability to create a natural-looking finish that perfectly integrates with the surrounding teeth. Veneers are strong and functional. They provide a long lasting, perfect smile, but it is important to note that veneers are a lifelong commitment, and may need to be replaced at some point.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is the most popular, and most accessible treatment in cosmetic dentistry. Nearly anyone can revitalize their brilliant smile. Whitening procedures are non-invasive.

We use various techniques to brighten, lighten, whiten, as well as remove stains and discoloration from the teeth. The result is a noticeably brighter and more vibrant appearance in a short amount of time. Whitening is possible in the office, or through at-home use kits. Both methods utilize bleaching agents like hydrogen peroxide to break down stains and reveal the natural color of the enamel.

The transformative impact of teeth whitening influences our patient's confidence and overall well being. Teeth whitening reverses the effects of aging, lifestyle choices, and foods and beverages that stain. It shows cosmetic dentistry's ability to enhance smiles and fosters a confident, brilliant smile.
