We love to make you smile!
BracesThe right solution for your smile will depend on a variety of factors. You may want straighter teeth without wearing metal braces. Perhaps dark stains are holding you back. Maybe you have a limited timeframe to complete cosmetic dentistry, or you have a wedding or reunion to attend. Dr. Pate offers the latest cosmetic dental solutions, so he can better serve your needs. With innovative techniques, we can give you your dream smile, often in just one or two appointments. Our cosmetic dental solutions include...
OrthodonticsRemember that your mouth is continually supplied with oral bacteria. Bacteria deposit plaque on your teeth that, left untouched, hardens into calculus or tartar. Tartar irritates the gums, initiating the process of gum disease. While regular brushing techniques seldom reach plaque's favorite hiding places, like just below the gumline and between the teeth, power toothbrushes have been clinically proven to reduce plaque and thereby minimize both calculus build up and gingivitis. They're designed to provide simple, effective, consistent access to even the hardest-to-reach places, including around orthodontics, appliances, and restorations without scrubbing, special toothpastes, or fancy techniques.
Invisalign OrthodonticsPatients now have the option to straighten their teeth the invisible way with Invisalign clear braces. This comfortable, removable alternative to metal braces uses a series of clear aligners to straighten your teeth, producing results you'll notice sooner than you think. You can achieve a perfect smile without the hassle, embarrassment, and discomfort of traditional orthodontia, thanks to Invisalign.
Dental ImplantsMissing teeth compromise the beauty and function of your smile. Speaking or chewing may become difficult, and remaining teeth often shift. Your self-esteem can suffer as well. Dental implants, the closet prosthetic to nature, can completely revive a damaged smile.
Restorative DentistryHome, just like the best professional dental technology helps us in the office. Battery-powered toothbrushes remove bacteria on and between teeth, and even below the gum line. An electric toothbrush will remove 92 percent of your plaque in just one minute, and it’s safe for cosmetic and restorative dentistry, as well as for braces.
Dental BondingIf you have a chipped, slightly misaligned, or otherwise imperfect tooth that needs cosmetic restoration, we may suggest one-appointment bonding. The dentist can apply liquid composite resin, shaded to blend with your tooth's color, to rebuild a pleasing shape to your tooth. After hardening the resin with a curing light, he will artistically sculpt and polish the restoration. In just one visit, you can enjoy a beautiful new smile! Cosmetic bonding can be a viable, affordable alternative to porcelain veneers, but it lasts only 5 to 10 years with proper care. Bonding will not discolor as your natural tooth enamel will, so touch-up teeth whitening may be required to keep your natural teeth the same shade as the bonded area.
Resin CompositeIf you're embarrassed about your smile because of decay or dark fillings in your teeth, you may be a good candidate for composite resins. A silicon dioxide-filled, tooth-colored plastic mixture, composite resins can restore teeth to an attractive, healthy state. Composite resins represent several advantages over traditional silver, or amalgam, fillings.
VeneersHave chipped, gapped, or discolored teeth stolen the confidence from your smile? Imagine the difference flawless front teeth could make in your life. With porcelain veneers, Dr. Pate can give you the smile of your dreams by changing the color, shape, and size of your teeth. Veneers actually fit over your front teeth, covering imperfections and creating optimal uniformity.
CrownsIf you're self-conscious about cracked, broken, decayed, or worn teeth, we can bring back your healthy, natural-looking smile with dental crowns, also called caps. A crown can return structure, strength, and function to a tooth with extensive decay or damage. Designed to fit snugly and function as a healthy tooth, a crown will protect your tooth from further damage and preserve the jaw's correct natural alignment.
DenturesDid you know that 69 percent of adults have lost at least one tooth, and 50 million Americans have lost all of their teeth? When you lose teeth, your oral health diminishes and your confidence suffers. Dentures and partials allow patients to eat the foods they like, speak with self-assurance, and improve their overall wellbeing.
Tooth WhiteningWe offer in-office and take home teeth whitening solutions to brighten our patients' smiles. In addition to giving you a cleaner looking, more attractive smile, teeth whitening can also provide anti-cavity benefits, stronger tooth enamel, and better overall enamel health. Maybe that's because when your teeth look amazing, you want to take better care of them so that they will keep looking great!
Cosmetic DentistryCall our office at 404-266-9424 and reserve an appointment to speak with Dr. Pate about cosmetic dentistry. Improving smiles and oral health is what we do best! Located in Buckhead, we welcome patients from Sandy Springs, Brookhaven, Lenox, and the surrounding areas to our practice.
Fluoride TreatmentAs your child grows, he will need regular checkups and hygiene visits to ensure optimal oral health. Our team will also teach oral homecare techniques so that your child can learn how to effectively brush and floss, with your help at first, then on his/her own. The dentist may recommend dental sealants or fluoride supplements. Sealants are thin, clear coatings that protect hard-to-clean back teeth from the bacteria that cause tooth decay. Fluoride attracts other minerals to strengthen tooth enamel and ward off cavities. Because most bottled water does not contain fluoride, your child may be deficient in this essential mineral. Sealants and fluoride supplements are quick and easy protective measures that can save your little one from cavities.
Dental SealantsSome patients experience mild and temporary post-placement sensitivity from composite resin fillings. The only caution we usually mention is that coffee, tea, and other staining foods and beverages may discolor your composites unless you ask to have them coated with a clear plastic sealant.
Oral Cancer ScreeningYour initial appointment will last about an hour or an hour and a half. We will discuss your health history, dental history, immediate pain and concerns, and long-term goals. If necessary, we’ll update your records with X-rays at this time. With advanced diagnostic technology, Dr. Pate will evaluate your entire mouth – teeth, gums, occlusion, jaw joints, and soft tissues. A head and neck evaluation, oral cancer screening, and gum disease assessment will complete your checkup. All of the information we gather will be reviewed by Dr. Pate, and you will be encouraged to become an active participant in treatment planning.
Dental ExaminationOur office regularly cares for the dental needs of children as young as three years old. However, if you notice that your child has a problem with teeth or gums prior to this age, please schedule an appointment. You may also want to bring your child with you to your dental checkup at about the age of two to become familiar with the sights, sounds, and friendly helpers in our dental office. We call this a Happy Visit. Your child's independent checkup at age three will involve a tooth-by-tooth inspection and periodontal exam. The dentist will check for proper development, as well as tooth decay and other areas of concern.
