Cosmetic DentistryWould you feel more confident about your smile if you could correct a few flaws? Most people have at least one or two smile issues that could be improved with a cosmetic dentistry treatment. Smyrna, GA, dentist Dr. Michael Nguyen of Highland Dental helps you transform your smile with a variety of services and treatments.

Teeth whitening

Professional teeth whitening is one of the simplest and least expensive ways to improve the appearance of your smile. Whitening can remove stains caused by darkly pigmented foods and beverages, such as coffee, tea, wine, cola, berries and sauces. Hydrogen peroxide, an all-natural whitening agent, seeps into the tiny pores in your tooth enamel and breaks apart stain-causing pigments. In-office whitening only takes about an hour and offers a safe, effective way to remove stains.

Tooth restoration

Replacing lost teeth improves your appearance and also restores your ability to chew and bite normally. Depending on the number of teeth you've lost, your Smyrna dentist may recommend one or more of these restoration options:

  • Dental Bridge: Bridges are an excellent solution if you've lost a few teeth or a single tooth. They consist of crowns attached to an artificial tooth or teeth.
  • Dentures: Full or partial removable dentures are good choices if you've lost all of your teeth or several teeth in a row.
  • Dental Implants: Implants are synthetic replacement roots that bond to your jawbone. Adding a crown to the top of an implant fills the gap in your smile. Implants can replace single or multiple missing teeth.


Veneers offer an excellent way to hide minor imperfections in your smile. The thin shells are made of porcelain, a material that looks just like your natural tooth enamel. Veneers are made from an impression of your mouth and attached to the fronts of your teeth with dental cement. The restorations are often used to hide slight gaps between your teeth, keep chips and cracks out of view, conceal discolorations or uneven surfaces, improve the shape of a crooked or twisted tooth, or lengthen a short tooth.
