Changing the appearance of your smile is easier than ever! Today's cosmetic solutions can address nearly any smile challenge, such as:
Our Zoom!® In-Office Teeth Whitening system allows us to whiten your teeth while you relax in the dental chair and listen to your favorite music. We keep you comfortable and gently apply a specially formulated light-activated gel to your teeth to remove old stains and whiten tooth surfaces. This process takes about an hour, and in most cases, patients leave our office with a smile that is several shades lighter.
We also offer take-home teeth whitening in our North Macon dental practice. Using custom trays designed to hold whitening gel, wearing these trays for about an hour a day usually lightens teeth in a few weeks.
The science of dentistry continues to provide dentists with stronger, more natural-looking materials for dental restorations. It is possible to design a smile with a combination of teeth whitening and crowns and veneers to complete a total smile makeover.
Dental veneers are shell-like coverings that are adhered to the front surfaces of teeth to enhance smile appearance. They are usually made of dental porcelain. Because veneers require minimal tooth preparation, they are often used to make cosmetic changes to healthy teeth, such as closing gaps, or to restore contour and shape to worn teeth to create a more youthful appearance. They are the ideal solution for minor smile imperfections such as chipped or stained teeth, slightly rotated or overlapped teeth. We can usually complete your dental veneers in as little as two visits.
A dental crown or "cap" is used to rebuild and cover a tooth that has been structurally compromised by decay, broken-down fillings, or trauma. Crowns can be designed using a number of materials, with or without metal, depending on biting forces and location of the tooth in the mouth. Many dental metals are available in tooth shades, so in most cases Dr. Booth can design a natural-looking restoration to complement your smile.
Often patients that have significant staining, aged crown and bridgework, or teeth with large, discolored fillings are self-conscious about their appearance. Dental veneers and matching esthetic crowns are a beautiful, natural-looking way to achieve a fresh new look.
Dental bonding procedures and tooth-colored composite fillings are often used to repair small areas of damage or decay. While they do not have the same durability as crowns or veneers, composite materials can be an economical cosmetic approach for concealing minor flaws in front teeth.

“Dr. Booth and his staff are excellent. I had debated for months on getting veneers on the top. After discussing with him and his staff I finally decided to do it. I am so happy I did! They look great and I am much more confident in my smile and appearance. It was such an easy and painless procedure. The friendliness and professionalism of Dr. Booth and his staff is greatly appreciated. Thank you Dr. Booth, so much!” — Pam S. More Reviews »
