What is cosmetic dentistry?
With respect to cosmetic dentistry, what I always look at is first and foremost, what is the patient's desire. It's not for me to decide how white they want their teeth or so forth, but just to start asking them questions about the shape of the teeth, about how much tooth shows when they smile, whether or not they have any missing or broken teeth. We go through a smile design process with the patient to help outline everything it is that they truly want. Once we have their recipe that they've helped custom-build for us, then we create a plan that we move forward with. We'll start off with models, custom-made for them that they can review. Then they actually get to try that smile in. Then if there's little tweaks or changes that they'd like to make, then we make those for them before we actually ever do any invasive procedures. Ultimately, the end result is something that they prefer and is custom-built for them.
Cosmetic dentistry is used to improve the look of your smile. This encompasses all the aesthetic aspects of teeth, including color, shape, size, and placement. If your smile is suffering from a cosmetic flaw, Dr. Morton and his team at Mint 32 Dentistry in Alpharetta, GA can help correct whatever problem you have and give you the kind of smile you’ve always wanted.
What are dental veneers used for?
Dental veneers are like fingernails for your teeth. With that in mind, they are one of the most versatile cosmetic, and sometimes restorative, fixes available. Veneers are a wonderful option for conditions such as:
- Chips – As a moldable covering, a veneer can cover chips in your teeth with ease. Your tooth will be returned to its original shape in no time.
- Deep Stains – Some dental staining cannot be treated with teeth whitening. In those situations, dental veneers are able to cover the stained teeth and return your smile to the bright appearance it should have.
- Misshapen Teeth – Sometimes you end up with teeth that just aren’t the shape they should be. This cannot be helped by orthodontic straightening methods. One way to effectively treat this type of cosmetic problem is with dental veneers.

How long does Invisalign take?
Normal orthodontic options such as braces take two to three years to correct misaligned teeth. Invisalign can do the job in as little as 12 months. Thats right, you can have a straight smile in less than half the time that braces will take to do the same thing. Dr. Morton will evaluate your case and walk you through the process.
What do facial fillers do to help my appearance?
Facial fillers refer to products such as Botox and Juvéderm. These products help to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles from your face. Botox accomplishes this by relaxing the muscles in the face to smooth your complexion. Juvéderm does not affect the muscles but rather fills sagging areas of your face to return the youthful appearance that time has taken from you.
What is laser contouring?
The use of lasers in the world of dentistry has revolutionized many different techniques. The power of dental lasers to adjust your smile’s appearance with practically no pain has made them the go-to tool for some cosmetic procedures like gummy smile treatment and crown lengthening.
Can Dr. Morton help my gummy smile?
Balance in your smile is important. A gummy smile is characterized by your gums dominating more of your smile than they should. Dr. Morton can adjust the level of your gumline with laser treatment and give you back the balanced smile you never thought possible.
What causes gum recession?
Gum disease is a major cause of gum recession. The infection begins to damage gum tissue, and the tissue begins to break down. The recession associated with gum disease can leave your teeth vulnerable to damage and even falling out. Dr. Morton can use different techniques such as the pinhole technique and gum grafts to help treat your gum recession.
What is tooth bonding?
Tooth bonding is a cosmetic technique in which Dr. Morton will use a tooth-colored bonding material to fix chips and cracks, cover severe stains, and generally improve the look of damaged teeth.
