Our team performs state-of-the-art cosmetic dentistry techniques, including dental implants, porcelain veneers, composite fillings, teeth whitening, and more.
Composite Bonding & Fillings
Composite bonding is both a cosmetic and reconstructive procedure used for minor aesthetic problems in which a tooth-colored resin or plastic material is applied to create a beautiful smile. George Dental may recommend composite bonding if guests have the following issues:
- Imperfections such as gaps
- Chips or cracks
- Protection of exposed roots
Our cosmetic dentists begin by examining your teeth. We then prepare the surface of the tooth and apply the tooth-colored resin. The resin is then shaped and molded to the desired look.
Dental bonding is a popular choice. It’s quick, painless, typically less expensive, and is relatively simple. The process is less invasive compared to porcelain veneers and crowns, making it an ideal alternative.
To see if you are a good candidate for composite bonding, contact George Dental. We can help you achieve the results you desire.
Dental Bridges – Fixed & Partial
Having a missing tooth can negatively impact even the most beautiful smile. If you have a missing tooth or teeth, dental bridges may be a great solution. Dental bridges are a set of false teeth or a false tooth made to cover a gap in between a patient’s existing teeth. Dental bridges are recommended to improve the following:
- Appearance of facial aesthetics
- Restore proper speech
- Restore the ability to chew food
- Eliminate further tooth shifting
- Reduce the risk of gum disease
Our George Dental experts can help restore your smile, improve your confidence and your overall facial aesthetic. Regardless of your smile’s current condition, bridges can be created and set in place within two office visits.
Our office offers three general types of bridges
- Traditional fixed bridge is the most common option and is designed by placing crowns over the surrounding teeth of either side of a gap.
- Resin-bonded bridge is the least expensive and perhaps most ideal bridge used in the front of the mouth. It is made of false teeth and securely bonded with resin.
- Cantilever dental bridge is used when a crown (sometimes more) is attached to the adjacent teeth. This procedure is done when teeth are only located on one side of the mouth that are under less stress.
The dental bridges created at George Dental look and feel natural. Rest assured that with dental bridges you will be have an improved appearance and also improved everyday actions such as chewing and talking. To decide which bridge option is best for you contact our offices today and schedule your appointment.
Dental implants are an ideal treatment for most healthy patients who’ve lost a tooth or several teeth due to dental decay or an injury. They feel, look, and work just like natural teeth. Aside from the benefit of feeling confident about your smile, dental implants can save supporting teeth and prevent defects in the jaw.
The treatment for dental implants consists of several phases. During your initial consultation, our experts at George Dental will determine your candidacy and address all your dental concerns. While the length of the overall procedure is typically extensive with proper care and maintenance dental implants can last a lifetime.
To find out if you are an ideal candidate for dental implants call the George Dental office today for your consultation.
Porcelain crowns are a great way to fix major tooth problems and play an important role in achieving dental health and function. A porcelain crown, also known as a cap, is used to protect and restore damaged or weakened teeth as well as cover dental implants. Crowns can also help prevent further damage to the tooth and can significantly reduce or eliminate pain and discomfort.
In as little as two office visits, George Dental can help improve the overall health of your teeth. We start off by examining your smile to choose the appropriate treatment. We’ll remove any decay if present and take an impression of your teeth. We then place a temporary crown to protect the tooth until the next office visit. On the second visit, we will dedicate that time to the porcelain crown placement.
Improve your smile and your health. Let the professionals at George Dental create your beautiful new healthy smile. Call for an appointment today and see the difference our porcelain crowns can make.
Porcelain Inlays and Onlays
Dental inlays and onlays work similar to porcelain crowns. However, the process is less invasive and they conserve the natural structure of the damaged tooth, making it an ideal way to preserve a tooth. The difference between the two is that an inlay is used to fill a tooth cavity, while an onlay covers a large surface of the damaged tooth.
At George Dental, we start by conducting a thorough exam to determine the appropriate treatment to help us decide the materials that work best for you and your needs. We then clean the tooth and prep for the impression that will be used to make your inlay or onlay. We’ll place a temporary protection for your tooth until your second visit in which the bonding of your permanent inlay or onlay will take place. Once your porcelain is bonded and secured, tooth sensitivity will be eliminated and further decay of the tooth will be prevented.
It is our goal to ensure our patients receive the best treatment for long lasting beautiful results. Call us today to schedule your appointment with one of our professionals.
Porcelain veneers are the ideal cosmetic dentistry choice for covering the front surface of the teeth. They provide a natural and healthy look by replicating the tooth enamel. Veneers are thin custom made shells that are used for customizing the color, size, length, and shape of a smile. If you wish to correct any dental imperfections such as discoloration, chipped, cracked or worn-down teeth, irregularities, or gaps porcelain veneers may be a great option for your custom smile makeover.
The professionals at George Dental will examine your teeth to establish the cosmetic plan that is appropriate for your smile. If porcelain veneers turn out to be right for you we will then discuss the process, the procedures, and benefits. It is our goal to help you achieve the smile you deserve. Call us today to discuss how porcelain veneers can transform your life.

Have you ever considered whitening your teeth? Welcome to the club! It’s one of our most popular services. Over time, dietary choices (like drinking coffee), age, and certain medications can contribute to a gradual dimming of your pearly whites. Teeth whitening is a quick way to enhance whiteness and brightness, and the results last up to a year.
Professional teeth whitening is a straightforward, in-office procedure. Here’s how it works:
- We prepare your mouth by shielding your lips and gums so that only your teeth are exposed
- Then we apply a professional-strength whitening gel to your teeth
- And expose your teeth to a special light for 15 minutes to help the gel penetrate and whiten your teeth
- We may repeat the process to achieve the desired results
