Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry


From our beginning, the team at Gentry Dentistry of Suwanee have focused on providing patients of all ages with the care and services they deserve to achieve their best smiles. We place an emphasis on early detection, prevention, and restoration techniques. Our goal is to provide each patient with one-on-one care so they can maintain their best oral health.

Our cosmetic and restorative dentistry services are designed to help restore and enhance your immediate and long-term dental health. We will work with you to determine which treatments fits your needs, budget, and goals for your smile.

 

Restorative Dentistry

No matter what we do, our teeth will experience the effects of aging, wear and daily life. No amount of brushing and flossing can keep this from happening. But through the years, great strides have been made to help patients achieve the smile they have always dreamed of, no matter their age.

If you’re teeth have lost their luster, or you’re missing a tooth or several teeth, Dr. Gentry can help get your smile back to looking bright and youthful. With restorative dentistry, you can achieve a functioning smile that is aesthetically pleasing and will boost your confidence.

There are health benefits that come with replacing missing teeth. If gaps are left in your smile, it is easier to develop periodontal disease and jaw bone disintegration. This could cause your facial structure to change and alter your appearance.

 

Ceramic Crowns

Ceramic crowns will help replace missing teeth and keep your tooth structure sound. Crowns can be paired with dental implants to help rebuild entire sections of teeth.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges will permanently close gaps between teeth. The look of the bridge may differ depending on the location of the bridge in the patient’s mouth. A simple bridge may consist of two crowns on either side of a false tooth.

Dr. Gentry is extremely knowledgeable and experienced when it comes to the placement of dental bridges. He will ensure that the bridge is placed accurately and is never visibly apparent.

Same Day Crowns

It is not unusual for the crowns of our teeth to become damaged as we age. Your crown is the entire portion of the tooth that is above the gum line. To restore your crown, we offer ceramic crowns that are tooth-colored and created for lost tooth structure. With ceramic crowns, your smile will be repaired in a single visit.

Constructed from porcelain, ceramic crowns are designed to fit perfectly in your mouth. Same day crowns are created right in our office, and are ready to be placed in 2 to 2 ½ hours. When the crown is finished being created, Dr. Gentry will place it in your mouth and send you home with your new brilliant smile.

For more information about same day crowns, contact our office today. We will help you determine if this is an option that is right for your mouth.

Dentures

Dentures have evolved with time. At one time they looked very unnatural and the patient had to deal with how uncomfortable they fit into their mouth. Today, dentures no longer look unnatural and fit, they feel and appear just like natural teeth.

Dentures that have been supported by dental implants will not slip or falter in any way. Modern dentures even offer a range of tooth and gum color choices, so they will match the patient’s mouth perfectly.

Root Canals

If periodontal disease or a cavity has progressed to a stage where the tooth has become infected internally, a root canal (endodontics) may be needed. Dr. Gentry will try to save the tooth, and leave an extraction for the last possible option. He will remove the tooth nerves and pulp, and any area of the tooth that has become infected.

After he has completed the root canal, the tooth will be filled and sealed to prevent any further damage. The loss of tooth pulp is nothing to be worried about since it is not necessary for the health of the tooth.

A root canal can offer new life to a tooth that if left untreated any longer, may have needed to be completely extracted.

For more information about our root canal procedure, feel free to contact our office at 770-945-5850 today.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a titanium screw that is placed in your gums to support a crown. The screw will go into your jaw bone and slowly fuse to your natural bone. As time goes on, the implant will become part of your jaw structure.

Dental implants can be matched with other restoration services that are simple or complex. Whether you’re in need of a single dental implant or a full set to support dentures, Dr. Gentry can get the job done. Since dental implants become part of your jaw structure, they will make restoration areas act and feel like natural teeth.

Dental Implant Procedure

Dental implant procedures can take several months to complete, but the end results are worth the time spent. The patient will need to have adequate bone structure to support the implant placement. Once the patient has been prepared, the implants will be placed through incisions made in their gums. The patient will then need to let the implants fully heal until the next step of the restoration process can begin. It is very important that enough time has passed so that the implant can integrate with your bone.

Dr. Gentry will work one-on-one with you until the implants have fully healed, and your restoration site is completed. By utilizing dental implants with restorative services, it allows our team to help our patients achieve the beautiful smile they deserve.

Cosmetic Dentistry

If you’re unhappy with your smile, there is something you can do about it! With a variety of cosmetic dentistry services you can achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of. Dr. Gentry and his staff will help you get the smile you have always wanted, and educate you on how to maintain it for years to come.

 

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the most common and popular cosmetic dentistry services available today. Whether your teeth have become stained from drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes or enamel wear, a whitening solution can help remove the stains and give you the white smile you have been yearning for.

At Gentry Dentistry of Suwanee, Dr. Gentry will work with you to determine a whitening plan that works with your schedule and whitening needs. We offer whitening services in-office, as well as at home.

With a whiter smile, we notice our patients have more confidence and better self-esteem. One whitening session could completely change your life.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding solves a variety of structure problems. From closing gaps between teeth, reducing tooth sensitivity, lengthening short teeth and restoring cracked or chipped teeth; dental bonding is a remarkable and simple process to help restore a patient’s mouth. When the appropriate tooth-colored resin is bonded to your mouth, it will stay in place for many years and will look and act like natural teeth. The process is generally completed in a single visit.

Composite Fillings & Tooth-Colored Restorations

Now with the use of composite materials, fillings can be matched to the precise tooth shade of the mouth it will be placed in. The filling will look natural, meaning no one will be able to notice that it is there.

If you have pre-existing metal dental work, Dr. Gentry can replace those with composite fillings or other restorations to help give you a more aesthetic smile.

Botox and Fillers

Everyone gets them. Those fine lines and wrinkles that form around your forehead and mouth as you age. If those lines and wrinkles have begun to take a hit to your self-confidence there is something your dentist can do to help you.

Dr. Gentry is happy to offer Botox treatments to help relax your facial muscles and get rid of your existing wrinkles. Treatments are a breeze and only take a few minutes to complete.

Your Botox Treatment

You will talk one-on-one with Dr. Gentry to determine how many Botox treatments you need to rid yourself of the wrinkles that are bothering you. Botox is helpful for those who clench their forehead while concentrating, working or feeling stressed.

Dr. Gentry will start by applying a topical anesthetic to make the injections unnoticeable. Then he will safely administer the shots of Botox to the necessary areas. You should start noticing results in 3-5 days after your treatment. These results generally last for 4-6 months. When the results start to wear off, you should return for another treatment.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are used to reduce wrinkles by providing the skin with hydrating substances. The fillers with return roundness to your cheeks while decreasing wrinkles and fine lines. Dermal fillers are very effective for laugh lines around the mouth and nose area.

Dr. Gentry has years of experience with injections and facial structure. He is highly certified when it comes to cosmetic injections. Just like Botox treatment, Dr. Gentry will apply a topical anesthetic and make the injections as comfortable as possible. Treatment is fast, easy and the results will last for months.

Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are one of the least invasive dental procedures available to help our patients change their smile for the better. Veneers are a new tooth surface that is fitted over your existing teeth. They are bonded to your teeth and can last for up to 10 years.

At Gentry Dentistry of Suwanee, we utilize porcelain for our veneers as they give a more natural look. The porcelain can actually be colored to match your teeth, or a shade that you are happy with.

Veneers can do a variety of things for a patient’s mouth, including lengthen their front teeth, permanently whiten teeth, reduce tooth sensitivity, repair worn teeth, fill gaps between teeth and much more! With the thinness of porcelain veneers, tooth reduction is reduced significantly. This allows the treatment to be more comfortable and preserves the existing teeth.
