Cover Problem Teeth With Ultra-Thin Porcelain Veneers.
Think of this treatment as a manicure for your smile. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are custom fit over your natural teeth. We can change the shape, color and length of your teeth in only a few visits.
Porcelain veneers are also very popular treatment option for tooth whitening. They are one of the most conservative restorations that can be done. This means that the amount of tooth structure that Dr. Davis must remove in order to do a veneer is very small. Generally, only 0.3 to 0.7 mm needs to be removed from the surface of your tooth.
The veneer is made and bonded to the tooth, incorporating the desired changes in shape and color. Once the bond is complete, the veneer is virtually as strong as a natural tooth. Since the veneer is so thin and there is no metal in it, the aesthetics is beyond compare.
When the size of a “filling” exceeds a certain proportion of the tooth, or the tooth is severely worn or broken, it must be protected with a “cap,” also called a “crown.” An excellent crown has the correct size, shape, fit, and color for its location in the mouth. Dr. Davis likes to use porcelain crowns that look very natural and don’t have a dark metal line.
Bonding is similar to sculpting individual teeth with a special tooth-like material that looks, acts and feels like the real thing.
Bonding is an affordable, quick and painless way to repair many cosmetic flaws or injuries.
Restorative Dentistry refers to the restoration of natural teeth that have been damaged, decayed or lost. Once Dr. Davis has examined your teeth and has evaluated your dental and medical history, he will be ready to provide a diagnosis and treatment options.
When an accident, a medical condition, or years of fillings and decay affects the appearance and function of your teeth, restorative procedures are often the only way to bring back the health and beauty of your smile. Dr. Davis teaches the discipline of restorative dentistry to other dentists. He has lectured at several regional dental meetings and is a visiting faculty member at the Pankey Institute.

Discolored, Dark, Or Stained Teeth Fixed With Tooth Whitening Dentistry
You may have seen TV advertising for toothpastes that whiten your teeth. These products work but can take up to a year to lighten the color enough to be noticed. Professional tooth whitening in the office of Dr. Davis lightens brown and yellow enamel discoloration. We can treat discolored, stained or aging teeth with our customized at-home bleaching process. We use a special gel inside a custom-made tray that covers your teeth.
Patients often say this is one of the nicest things they have ever done for themselves. Every winter, be sure to ask about our “Brighter Smiles for Brighter Futures” deal that raises donations for the Marion Webb Breast Cancer Center at Gwinnett Medical Center.
