We Give You a Reason to Smile
Whiten & Brighten Your Teeth
If you are not satisfied with the way your teeth look, it’s important to fix them so you can feel confident in your smile. Townsend Family Dental Center offers incredible cosmetic dentistry services to patients across the Hinesville, GA area. From whitening your teeth to replacing missing teeth, we will bring back your sparkling smile.
Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “bleaching” procedure. Dental bleaching can be used to correct many tooth discolorations. These discolorations may have been caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage. Using the latest in bleaching technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful, “brilliant” smile.
In only a day or two, your custom bleach splints will be ready for you. We provide you with a special bleaching agent that you put into the clear, nearly invisible splints. With only a few hours of wear per day, our special bleaching agent bubbles stains right out of your enamel without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the brightness you want, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile.
Bleaching is safe, quick, and inexpensive. You can lighten only your upper teeth or both the upper and lower teeth, depending on your specific needs. Please keep in mind, while over-the-counter bleaching agents are available at drug stores and pharmacies, these products can harm the gums and teeth. It’s better to use products that our practice recommends. For very severely stained teeth, crowns, or veneers may be more appropriate.
Veneers are custom-made porcelain laminates that bond directly to the front and top surfaces of the teeth. Because veneers look and feel like normal teeth, they are an ideal choice for improving your smile and correcting misaligned or crooked teeth. In addition, porcelain veneers are also an excellent option for patients looking to close gaps between teeth, while having an option that is resistant to discoloration from dental bleaching, coffee, tea, and cigarette stains.
With proper care, porcelain veneers will brighten your smile for well over a decade. The process takes about four appointments, including your final follow-up visit.
Taking care of your veneers is as easy as maintaining your normal dental hygiene routine. You brush and floss as you normally would. In the first one or two weeks after having your veneers you may experience sensitivity to hot and cold. This is normal. If sensitivity persists longer than a few weeks, please contact our office.
With today’s advanced dental technology, it is possible for you to have a new smile. Dr. Townsend can create a treatment plan for you that adds small, simple enhancements to your smile – or change every tooth to create a whole new look.
When you come in for your appointment, it is important to know that you can change the color, shape, and position of most teeth. Even if you do not quite know how to explain what it is about your smile that you want changed, Dr. Townsend can help you understand and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
Lifelike Dentures & Partials
No one wants to wear dentures or partials that do not look real or function well when eating and speaking. Having fitted patients for dentures for several years, Dr. Townsend knows what works and what does not work well with patients of all ages. As a dentist, he is committed to restoring form and function to his patients’ mouths.
Dr. Townsend wants his patients to smile and not have anyone know that they are wearing dental prostheses. Dr. Townsend uses competent labs and the latest materials with proven techniques to treat his patients that are missing one or more teeth.
Dental implants are another alternative to tooth replacement. In many instances, dental implants can be used in conjunction with dentures. While full and partial dentures may have come a long way since their early years, they can still be a hassle resulting in slipping, inconvenience, and discomfort. Many denture wearers are looking for a better solution, and dental implants may be the answer for you.
Dental implants can be an ideal solution for people with dentures, providing replacement teeth that are as close to your natural teeth as possible, regardless of whether you’re missing one tooth or an entire set of teeth. Dental implants are anchored into the jawbone like natural teeth; making your replacement teeth so strong that slippage becomes a thing of the past. With your new implants, you’ll be able to eat whatever you like more comfortably and speak with confidence. Dental implants allow for a happier, more active lifestyle. They allow you to eat the foods you want to eat and allow you to speak clearly and with more confidence.
TMJ treatment involves treating the temporomandibular joint. This is the joint that connects the lower jaw to your skull. People often have pain in this joint or experience popping or clicking noises from this area. These symptoms of temporomandibular disorder (TMD) arise from trauma to the jaw joint. Trauma can result from an improper jaw alignment, a non-ideal occlusion (how the top and bottom teeth come together), a parafunctional habit (clenching or grinding your teeth), or a physical accident to the joint.
Regardless of the cause of the joint disorder, it is treatable with proper diagnosis from your dentist. TMD often results in overactivity of your jaw muscles and the strain on these muscles can result in headaches. Please ask your dentist about TMD and treatments available if you have frequent headaches or any problem with your jaw joints.
