What does General Dentistry mean today?
General dentistry has changed in major ways over the last several years. Advances in technology allow us to practice minimally-invasive dentistry, which means less drilling on your teeth and more innovative solutions for your mouth, teeth and smile. We invest in state-of-the-art technology and methodology that benefits patient health and well-being for both adults and kids alike. Since our focus is total wellness dentistry, we only use materials and techniques that benefit your health. For example, we are a mercury-free dentistry practice. Dr. Estep has refused to place mercury fillings for her entire career.
Shot’s don’t have to hurt
After appointments, this is the first thing most of Dr. Estep’s patients say. Dr. Estep has spent her career perfecting a technique that makes her shots painless and even undetectable most of the time. Her technique has become well-known in Atlanta because she is able to do her job without causing you discomfort. She trains her team to do the same, which means you’ll have comfortable, pleasant appointments every time you’re with us.
Total Wellness Dentistry
Intown Smile Studio is one of a few practices leading the nation in total wellness dentistry. Every dental appointment is wrapped with this heightened care, and because of this, our patients are literally healthier because they choose us for their dental care. We pay attention to the science of total wellness dentistry, along with the latest and best technology in all aspects of dentistry. Our Intown Smile Studio team participates in hours of continuing education every year. By doing so, we stay at the cusp of dental technology, and we know that we are using best practices for our patients.
Minimally-invasive dentistry is comfortable and requires much less numbing and drilling, which results in a healthier you. That’s because Dr. Estep is conscientious about using biocompatible materials. She refuses to grind away your healthy tooth structure and put potentially harmful mercury (or other metal) in your mouth (even though that’s what they still teach in dental school).
Here are some examples of how Intown Smile Studio uses minimally-invasive dentistry every day:
Alternative Dental Treatment for Gum Disease
Our patients with gum disease have a treatment option to wear healing trays as an alternative to deep cleaning and scraping.
Alternative Dental Treatment for Crowns
We use conservative porcelain fillings instead of grinding teeth down to nubs to make crowns.
Alternative Dental Treatment for Fillings
We can even reverse small cavities and regrow your enamel with customized toothpastes, rinses and home care products.
These are only a few examples that truly set Intown Smile Studio apart from other practices. Dr. Estep and the Intown Smile Studio team are leading a paradigm shift that has completely changed the experience of “going to the dentist.” Our patients truly enjoy their visits with us, and they trust in our competence, experience, knowledge and compassionate care.
