The “New Year, New You” resolutions shouldn’t end at the end of January. Meeting self-improvement goals takes planning, follow-through and, very often, working with the right team. For instance, Dr. Robert Harrell and the phenomenal team at Adult Dentistry of Ballantyne can help you totally upgrade your smile using the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures. Let’s take a closer look below:

1. Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening will probably never go out of demand, but this time around most patients are going for natural-looking white teeth, not overly-white results that people have had in the past few years. Aside from looking a bit absurd, super-white teeth are perceived as having been heavily treated, and that could lead to the weakening of enamel. Today patients can ask dentists to whiten just to the point of looking like healthy, natural teeth.

2. Gum Contouring

Making teeth seem longer and shapelier is one of the goals of gum contouring. Also known as gum reshaping, the procedure is perfect for people with a gummier than usual smiles. Even those with two front teeth can benefit from gum contouring. Aside from improving your smile, gum contouring can also help improve the health of your teeth and gums.

Invisible Braces

It used to be that if you wanted to have straight teeth you would have to wear very noticeable braces in order to get your teeth to align the way that they are supposed to. These braces were not the most attractive things in the world and many people who needed braces disliked the way that they looked. Just the thought of braces likely brings up an image of discomfort and unattractive metal on the teeth. Fortunately, there are now invisible braces available that will provide you with the straight teeth that you desire without being noticed.

Dental Implants

Sometimes, a dental crown is not an option due to too much decay, a missing adult tooth and much more. Dental implant therapy solidifies smiles and protects the integrity of the jaw. Dental implant bridges are now a superior option when traditional bridges are up for replacement. Implants are often chosen for their durability and as they are the closest functioning restoration to our natural teeth, they are ideal for general and cosmetic dentistry procedures. Learn more below:


Dental implants are used to replace teeth after tooth loss. The dentist inserts a small titanium screw into the jaw at the site of the missing tooth, which serves as the support for a crown. These implants are almost indistinguishable from the surrounding natural teeth, and once the bone and supporting tissue fuse to the implant, they are permanently secured into place. Patients need to practice diligent oral hygiene during the implant placement period to clean plaque and food debris from the area. Learn more about dental implant therapy, compliments of Colgate
