Together, we can preserve your oral health and make your radiant smile last a lifetime.

 

Dental Implants

Dental implants are titanium, man-made, artificial tooth roots that act as anchors for dental prosthetics such as dental bridges, dental crowns, and dentures. Dental implants provide your smile with the strength and support that is lost when a tooth is knocked out or extracted due to damage or decay. Dental implants are surgically fused with the jawbone for stability and covered with a customized prosthetic tooth to provide both functionality and a natural-looking appearance. By having dental implants placed in your jaw, you can protect the integrity of your teeth and gums and prevent further damage from plaguing your smile

 

Dental Crowns & Bridges

Dental crowns, offered at our restorative dentistry practice in Decatur, are porcelain caps that engulf structurally flawed tooth to mask imperfections and preserve the tooth’s structure. Crowns can also be used in conjunction with a dental implant to replace a single, missing tooth. The natural-looking restoration is hand crafted to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your existing teeth. While dental crowns address a single missing tooth, dental bridges bridge the gap created by multiple missing teeth. Both types of porcelain prosthetics are hand-milled by experienced laboratory technicians for additional precision and perfection.

 

Dental Fillings

We believe in crafting the most natural-looking, most effective, and safest restorations imaginable for patients. By utilizing only composite resin materials at our restorative dentistry facility in Decatur, we create more desirable restorations that look realistic and yield supremely satisfying outcomes. If your damaged smile has been treated with silver, mercury, or amalgam materials in hopes of protecting the structural integrity of your teeth, Dr. Gary Simms can carefully and gently remove those unsafe, unattractive materials and replace them with a tooth-colored solution to improve the appearance and health of your smile.

 

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is used to repair decayed teeth, alter the shape or size of a tooth, repair a structural imperfection, close small gaps in-between teeth, and protect a portion of the tooth’s root that has been exposed due to a receding gum line. Using a composite resin material, Dr. Gary Simms can restore aesthetic beauty to your smile while improving a specific dental problem. The bonding material is applied directly to the affected area, where it is molded into shape, hardened, and polished. This quick, simple procedure is highly effective at restoring minor cosmetic flaws.

 

Dentures

Do ill-fitting dentures keep you from feeling confident when smiling, eating, or talking? At Metro Decatur Dental Group PC, Dr. Gary Simms offers customized dentures to patients who are missing all of, or will soon be missing all of, their teeth. Our dentures snugly form to the contour of your smile for added comfort and reliable support. Every patient deserves to have a fully functioning, beautiful smile, which is why we design dentures that can also be supported by dental implants. The structural framework that implants provide to the prosthetic improves the aesthetic beauty, natural function, and convenience of traditional, ill-fitting dentures.

 

Full-mouth Reconstruction

Full-mouth reconstruction is a service that utilizes several restorative dentistry procedures to re-establish health and harmony within your smile. By addressing multiple imperfections, including decay and structural damage, we can significantly improve the health of your smile and craft your teeth into magnificent pieces of art that highlight your natural beauty. Trust the specialist who thousands of patients turn to for their dental needs. Dr. Gary Simms will not only help you rebuild your smile, he will restore your self-esteem.

 

Common Questions

How much do dentures cost?

The cost of dentures will vary from patient to patient, so it’s impossible to predict the cost before evaluating the patient. The cost of dentures may also include associated expenses, such as x-rays, extractions or dental impressions. Your dentist will be able to give you a more detailed estimate of the expected costs at your initial evaluation.

 

What is a partial denture?

A partial denture is used to replace a number of missing teeth – as few as one – when some natural teeth remain in the patient’s smile. Partial dentures typically are attached to surrounding teeth by metal clasps and can be removed at the patient’s discretion. Patients may be instructed to remove a partial for certain periods of time in order to give the gum tissue a “rest” from the appliance. For example, the dentist may advise the patient to remove the partial during sleep.

 

What are permanent dentures?

Permanent dentures are secured by dental implants, which are titanium cylinders that are biocompatible. This means that surrounding jawbone material can form a bond with the dental implants, which leaves them as permanent components of the jaw structure. Because the dental implants act like artificial tooth roots, they help to stabilize both the jaw and the denture. The jaw’s shape remains constant and the dental implants prevent bone loss, so the appliance will retain its fit. The patient does not need to worry about frequent re-linings or even periodic replacement of the appliance when the denture is supported by dental implants.

 

Are dentures covered on insurance?

Different dental insurance plans offer different levels of coverage, and your plan may provide some reimbursement for dentures along with associated treatment. Our expert billing staff will work with your insurer to maximize your insurance benefits. We accept a variety of payment options and can help you connect with a low-interest financing service for any expenses that are determined to be your responsibility.

      As a manager that has worked with Dr.Simms for over 14yrs I value my position as an Office Manager to ensure great customer service and patient education that our patients deserve. When that is not exemplified from my front office staff … More changes must be made. As with any job expectations are required and when it becomes clear that those expectations are ignored then the proper changes are taken to protect the company and our brand! I can ensure you that now that we have made changes to our front office staff you will be greeted with a pleasant smile and a warm welcome as you come through the door. Please feel free to come into our office to experience the changes we have made to ensure a pleasant visit.
