Are you tired of waiting for a smile makeover? Your poorly spaced, dull and yellowed teeth don't represent the real you. Well, if you're cosmetic dentistryready to start smiling with confidence, Dr. Wyman Martin and his dedicated team at The Martin Dental Center for Oral Health and Aesthetics are ready to design a look just perfect for you. Learn all about the services your cosmetic dentist in Roswell offers patients of all ages.

Smile detractors:

There are many, and we all know what they are because if we smile and see them in the mirror, we shudder.

  • Dull, yellowed enamel
  • Gapped teeth
  • Poor dental alignment
  • Dark fillings
  • Chipped, cracked teeth
  • Orthodontic relapse (teeth drift back into their uncorrected positions)

Some defects come from wear and tear, aging, oral injury, staining from darkly pigmented foods and smoking. Others come from genetics. Dr. Martin wants you to know that together, we can fix these flaws to help you flash your best smile.

What Dr. Wyman Martin offers

Your cosmetic dentist in Roswell as a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry offers personalized and precise smile design to patients who just want to feel good when they smile. It is true, your smile really does become you. If your smile has flaws, you want to hide it, if it looks naturally great, you want to show it off.

As such, you'll benefit from a one-on-one consultation at The Martin Dental Center for Oral Health and Aesthetics. Dr. Martin will study your oral health and smile configuration. Working together, we can correct the flaws that have bothered you for years.

His services include:

  • Zoom - Whitening with customized trays and a bleaching gel activated by a LED light. The in-office treatment removes years of stains caused by tobacco, simple aging or dark foods such as red wine, blueberries, tea and coffee. Teeth may brighten up to four to six shades.
  • MTM clear aligners accomplish minor tooth movement (hence, the name) quickly and comfortably, erasing minor bite and alignment problems. They are so much easier than traditional braces.
  • Porcelain veneers which are customized, tooth-shaped shells of quality porcelain which disguise the front of teeth flawed with hairline cracks, large chips, odd shape, gaps and overcrowding. Very durable, veneers produce Hollywood results in just two visits with Dr. Martin.
  • White fillings and tooth-colored crowns, combining the best of dental aesthetics while restoring broken down teeth.

Smiling should be a natural reaction, but if your teeth are crooked or stained, or if you have missing teeth, you might do whatever you cosmetic dentistry can to hide your smile. Dr. Wyman Martin of The Martin Center for Oral Health and Aesthetics in Roswell, GA, practices cosmetic dentistry, so you can have a smile you'll be proud to show off. Here are a few of the reasons why people choose to have a cosmetic dentistry procedure.

Why should I have a cosmetic dentistry procedure?

Having your Roswell cosmetic dentist update your smile with a cosmetic dental procedure might seem unnecessary at first, especially if your teeth are healthy. However, noticeably beautiful teeth can enhance your life in a variety of ways. First impressions are very important. Several industry surveys have shown that people view an attractive smile as a measure of success, reliability, even intelligence. If your job requires a lot of "face time" with others, a rejuvenated smile could improve your interaction with your clients and colleagues. An attractive smile can also improve your self-confidence, making it easier to meet new people.

What cosmetic dentistry procedure should I choose?

There are a variety of cosmetic dental treatments available from your Roswell dentist, ranging from an in-and-out appointment to a full smile makeover. Dark fillings can be replaced with tooth colored restorations, which are almost invisible. Simply reshaping teeth can make a smile more pleasing to others. Zoom Whitening, which takes over an hour, can make a huge difference if your teeth are discolored. Bonding is another relatively low-cost and quick procedure that fills in gaps or chips on the edges of teeth. Veneers offer the benefits of several procedures with realistic porcelain restorations. A consultation at the Martin Center for Oral Health and Aesthetics will help determine which cosmetic dental procedures are the best ways to improve your smile.

To learn more about cosmetic dentistry's benefits, contact The Martin Center for Oral Health and Aesthetics in Roswell, GA. We'd be happy to set you up with an appointment to discuss your options with Dr. Martin!

Cosmetic DentistryYour smile is your first impression to the world, a message that can tell others about your health and how well you care for your teeth. If your smile is not conveying the message you hope it to before others, it may be time to consider cosmetic dentistry services at our Roswell, GA dentist's office.
Cosmetic dentistry is more than teeth whitening (although that can certainly be part of it) and it does not always have to involve invasive procedures. Here are five ways cosmetic dentistry can improve your smile.

1. By correcting chipped or cracked front teeth.
If your front top teeth (the most noticeable ones) are chipped, cracked, stained or irregularly sized, porcelain veneers are a cosmetic dentistry intervention that may help. Veneers are cemented over the top of your damaged teeth, acting as a concealer to improve your smile. Celebrities such as Tom Cruise wear veneers, which are designed to look natural and last anywhere from 5 to 10 years before requiring replacement.

2. By re-shaping a "gummy" smile.
Dr. Wyman Martin not only offers services to improve the teeth, but also to address cosmetic concerns related to the gums. If you have a smile that is too "gummy," where your gums appear more pronounced than your teeth, crown lengthening may help to correct this concern. If you are concerned with receding gums, cosmetic interventions such as grafts are also available.

3. By whitening your teeth.
While teeth whitening products are available over-the-counter, there are significant differences between the results these provide from a visit to your Roswell, GA dentist's office. We offer in-office whitening treatments that reverse the effects of such things as aging, food and tobacco stains, and medication use.. If you truly desire whiter teeth, which are often synonymous with healthier teeth, professional whitening can help you see results of anywhere from five to eight shades whiter teeth.

4. By restoring your teeth to health.
As little as a decade ago, filling a cavity meant a mouthful of metal. Today, cosmetic or tooth-colored fillings exist that allow you to have a tooth filled without highly noticeable metal present. Tooth-colored fillings enhance your tooth's health without affecting its appearance.

5. By replacing lost or missing teeth with cosmetically appealing options.
Many of our Roswell, GA cosmetic dentistry patients experience a lost or missing tooth. Thankfully there are many available interventions that can replace a lost or missing tooth. These include bridgework, implants, and dentures. If a tooth is severely decayed, but can be salvaged, Dr. Martin can also perform a root canal and top the tooth with a dental crown.

To learn how our Roswell, GA cosmetic dentistry services can help you experience a brighter, whiter and/or straighter smile, please call (770) 993-7424.
