What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is the treatment of primarily aesthetic smile conditions. While several cosmetic procedures may have added health benefits, they mainly focus on improving the look of your smile rather than your oral health.
Featured Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Thanks to the range of cosmetic dental procedures available at our Stockbridge office, Dr. Greene can address nearly any concern you have regarding the appearance of your smile. From a whiter smile to improved dental alignment, we can provide you with a solution that will make your goals a reality.
If you have an outstanding issue you would like to take care of but are not sure which treatment is right for you, our team will gladly review your options during your next dental appointment. Our dentist can restore your smile's luster using a number of treatments, including:
Veneers can give you a stunning smile that you can be proud to show off. A versatile cosmetic dentistry option, veneers can address a number of dental concerns. Made from ultra-thin porcelain, custom veneers can conceal gaps as well as chipped, worn, and slightly crooked teeth. Keep in mind that porcelain veneers require permanent alteration of the surfaces of the teeth being treated. Veneers are designed to last 10 years or more with proper care. Our dentist, Dr. Greene, can review your candidacy and answer any questions you may have about veneers at your next appointment.
A tooth that has been broken due to trauma or is severely compromised due to dental decay can be fully restored with a dental crown, but crowns can also conceal deep dental stains that don't respond to other treatments. Crafted out of the same state-of-the-art materials as dental veneers, porcelain and ceramic crowns look beautiful while restoring a weakened or discolored tooth. Our cosmetic dentist can color-match a crown to seamlessly blend in with your surrounding teeth. Dr. Greene can also create a new implant-supported crown for patients replacing missing teeth with dental implants.
Whitening a dull smile can completely enhance your look. For this reason, many patients visit our Stockbridge dental office for professional teeth whitening. When compared to the alternatives, professional teeth whitening is simply unrivaled. No matter how long you use them, over-the-counter kits cannot brighten your smile as quickly or effectively as an in-office whitening treatment. A single appointment at our cosmetic dentistry practice yields incredible results. If you are interested in a brighter smile, our dentist can deliver with professional teeth whitening.
An affordable alternative to porcelain veneers, dental bonding can conceal imperfections that cause you to feel self-conscious when it comes time to smile. Dental bonding is one of the most convenient treatments we offer at our dentistry practice. Our dentist can enhance your smile by filling gaps, covering cracks, and concealing stains in a single appointment. Patients without sufficient enamel for dental veneers can also benefit from dental bonding. If you are looking to transform your smile on a budget, dental bonding may be the ideal choice.
If a gummy smile is compromising your appearance, gum contouring can reveal more of each tooth to make your smile more proportionate. A conservative procedure, gum contouring removes small amounts of tissue while delivering incredible results. Our dentist can correct an uneven gumline to uncover more of your natural tooth for a bigger, brighter smile. Contouring is also often recommended as a preliminary procedure to prepare patients for porcelain veneers or dental crowns. Dr. Greene can provide more information about gum contouring during your next visit to our dentistry office.

What Is a Cosmetic Dentist?
A cosmetic dentist has the same core training as general dentists for basic treatments such as routine cleanings. However, cosmetic dentists like Dr. Greene spend more time and effort perfecting their techniques for cosmetic treatments when compared to general dentists. For this reason, patients should seek a trained cosmetic dentist like Dr. Greene to receive the best value and results from each treatment.
Dr. Greene will complete a thorough general dental exam to ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy enough for cosmetic dentistry.
The Benefits of Visiting a Cosmetic Dentist
Even if you have the best dental hygiene, you may have stained, chipped, or crooked teeth that cause your smile to look unhealthy. These common dental issues can also make you feel self-conscious or uneasy when it's time to pose for a photo. Thankfully, cosmetic dentistry provides patients with a number of flexible treatment options that can help improve their appearance and self-confidence.
When you visit a cosmetic dentist like Dr. Greene, you can enjoy benefits such as:
Veneers, teeth whitening, and crowns can address nearly any cosmetic issue. Our dentist, Dr. Greene, can create a custom cosmetic dental plan to meet your needs.
In some cases, cosmetic dentistry allows you to improve the function of your bite. We offer strong and beautiful dental crowns that can restore and protect a compromised tooth.
The beauty of cosmetic dentistry is in the results. To ensure the best outcomes, we offer dental care focused on your individual needs, goals, and facial features.
Many patients consider Dr. Greene as a friend instead of just their dentist. His caring personality and affinity for having a friendly chat before treatment begins are part of his popularity.
We've Gone Digital for Your Comfort
In the past, cosmetic dentists were limited to traditional putty impressions when creating care plans for patients. These putty impressions were uncomfortable to use, had to remain in the mouth for a few minutes, and could make patients gag, leading to a less-than-ideal dentistry experience.
Now, our Stockbridge, GA, office uses digital impressions that take fast and thorough images of your teeth so we can plan a precise treatment that works for your smile with no mess, wait, or discomfort. The result is restorations that fit comfortably in your mouth and a final outcome that flatters your smile and facial harmony as a whole.

Cosmetic Dentistry Is an Investment in Your Confidence & We Make It Possible
Cosmetic procedures are generally not covered by insurance, but that shouldn't stop you from achieving your goals. Our team will work with your insurance company to get coverage for eligible procedures and keep costs down. Restorations like crowns, which can be medically necessary, may qualify for coverage.
*According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
At Dental Group South, Inc., we believe that cosmetic dentistry is a worthwhile investment in your confidence and happiness. We offer flexible financing through CareCredit® so that you can enjoy your results without worrying about out-of-pocket expenses. CareCredit offers payment plans with low or even zero interest rates, which allows qualifying patients to spread the cost of their dental care over several months and keep treatment a comfortable fit for their budgets.
Is Cosmetic Dentistry Right for Me?
You Are in Good Oral Health
Being a good candidate for cosmetic procedures depends on your current state of oral health. It is important for patients to have a healthy foundation to enjoy long-lasting results. Our dentist can include any procedures needed to improve your oral health, like a deep cleaning or gum disease treatment, while developing your overall treatment plan.
We Can Resolve Your Dental Conditions
While cosmetic dentistry can conceal minor blemishes, it is not designed to treat major oral health concerns, like missing teeth. Patients in the Stockbridge area with gaps in their smile due to missing teeth can address tooth loss with a bridge or denture. If you are interested in the extensive benefits of restorations supported by dental implants, we will work with a trusted oral surgeon to coordinate your dental implant surgery. Dr. Greene can then complete your dental implant procedure with a custom crown, bridge, or denture.

Making Your Cosmetic Dentistry Last
Depending on the cosmetic dentistry treatment you've received with our team, it can last anywhere from six months (teeth whitening) to indefinitely (gum contouring). There are some simple things you can do to prolong the life of your dentistry treatment:
Receive Touch-Up TreatmentsGetting a touch-up whitening treatment every six months or so can help prolong your results and keep your smile vibrant. We will also be here for you if you need to touch up your dental bonding or replace a crown or veneer.
Be Mindful of What You EatHard and tough foods can damage your natural teeth and your restorations. Sticky foods can pull restorations out of place completely. Foods that stain can discolor your teeth over time. Be mindful of your diet to prolong your vibrant results.
Prioritize Your Oral HygieneAn at-home routine will supplement the effort our Stockbridge team puts into your care. Be sure to follow an at-home oral care routine that involves daily brushing and flossing to maintain a healthy foundation for your cosmetic dentistry and keep stains to a minimum.
Visit Your Dentist RegularlyBe sure to visit your Stockbridge, GA, dentist regularly so our team can give you a thorough dental cleaning and keep an eye on any restorations you've received. When you visit us, we will monitor your oral health, treat any problems before they become serious, and let you know when it's time to replace a crown or veneer.
"If I could give 10 stars I would! This Dental office is like no other I have been to. I wanted a more personal experience and not only did I get that but also the most relaxed, peaceful atmosphere. It was old fashion customer service with modern up-to-date technology and equipment. Every one in this office (from the hygienist...to the receptionist and Dr. Greene the dentist) makes you feel like they really care and enjoy what they do. This place is simply amazing and I will be a patient forever!"
