If your teeth are not as white and bright as you would like, a teeth whitening procedure may be an excellent option for you. The in-office teeth whitening treatment offered by Medical Arts Dentistry is designed to brighten your smile quickly and easily, doing wonders for your appearance!

When you opt for a teeth whitening treatment at our Savannah office, you will benefit from quick results and our commitment to patient safety. Your friends, family and co-workers will notice the difference right away.

White and bright teeth are important for several reasons:

  • Bright teeth can increase your self-confidence
  • Others will notice and admire your white teeth

  • You will enjoy the sight of your smile every time you pass a mirror

Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you, and having brilliant teeth puts you at an advantage when you are trying to make a great impression! When your teeth are white, you look healthy and vibrant. There's no reason to put off your teeth whitening procedure any longer. Schedule your appointment today, and benefit from white and beautiful teeth in as little as one visit!

  • Healthy appearance
  • Higher levels of self-confidence
  • Smiling more frequently

  • Better overall health

There are many cosmetic dentistry treatments available to our Savannah patients, including Invisalign, dental veneers, dental crowns, teeth whitening, dental bridges, and more.

At Medical Arts Dentistry, it is our goal to provide the look you want to achieve through our cosmetic dentistry procedures. During your initial evaluation, our staff will explain all of the benefits cosmetic dentistry can offer you besides a pretty smile. While it's certainly true that others will notice your improved teeth and smile, the most important outcome of cosmetic dentistry is how you feel about yourself when the procedures are complete.

Invisalign is an excellent orthodontic treatment option for many patients, and a desirable alternative to traditional metal braces. The aesthetic and functional advantages Invisalign offers have caused it to increase in popularity among patients and dentists alike.

 Unlike metal braces that use brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of almost invisible aligner trays that gradually move your teeth into the desired position. The trays are removable and can be taken out of your mouth when you are eating, drinking or cleaning your teeth. If you are located in or around the Savanna, Georgia area, contact our office today to see if you are a candidate for Invisalign.

Typical candidates for Invisalign have the following orthodontic issues:

  • Minor spacing issues
  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth

Invisalign is usually recommended for older teenagers and adults, not children in need of early orthodontic treatment. You must keep to a strict dental schedule to be successful with Invisalign. Aligner trays must be worn for 20-22 hours every day, and anyone who forgets or neglects to wear them might not have a successful orthodontic outcome.

While Invisalign is an excellent option, it cannot correct all orthodontic issues. If your teeth are severely crooked or you have a complex issue with your bite, another type of orthodontic system may be more effective. For an orthodontic evaluation, please contact Medical Arts Dentistry at (912) 355-0605. We typically work with patients in and around the Savanna area.

It's never too early to be concerned about your baby's oral health! Even before your child has any teeth, it is a good idea to clean your baby's gums with a gentle washcloth every day. Once the first tooth erupts from the gums, the tooth (and subsequent teeth) should be cleaned with a soft toothbrush made for a baby.

Our family dentist serves patients in the Savannah area, and we see patients of all ages! A family dentist is optimal for families with young children because every member of your family can be seen by the same dentist in the same office.  

Tips on caring for your child's baby teeth:

  • Schedule a professional dental visit with a family dentist when your child turns one
  • Get your baby used to teeth brushing by using a soft toothbrush designed for a baby starting at a very young age
  • Don't ignore the importance of using dental floss once your child has multiple teeth that touch each other

When you schedule your child's first dental appointment, make sure to ask the dentist for advice on how to best care for your baby's teeth. Good dental health begins early, so even though your child's teeth are small and new, they should still be cleaned on a regular basis.

To schedule a dental appointment for your child, please contact Medical Arts Dentistry at (912) 355-0605. Our Savannah office staff and family dentist are experienced at serving patients of all ages - including babies!
