The first step toward achieving a beautiful smile is establishing a healthy one. Along with an effective daily oral hygiene routine, regular visits with Dr. George are crucial to the health of your teeth and gums.
Sugarloaf Smiles proudly offers the following general dental services:
Regular dental exams are the foundation to keeping your teeth healthy. During your dental exam we will inspect every aspect of your mouth, from your teeth and gums to your jaw and cheeks. If the dentist finds a potential issue, we will make recommendations on how to best correct the problem.
It’s recommended to have your teeth cleaned every six months. Your dental cleaning will be performed by one of our friendly dental hygienists. They will use special tools to remove calculus, stains and plaque from your teeth.
Individuals of all ages can benefit from dental sealants. They are an important preventive measure that we often recommend to help protect the molars and chewing surfaces of the teeth from decay.
Dental fillings are a very common procedure that replaces the damaged or decayed portion of a tooth. At Sugarloaf Smiles we are dedicated to offering restorative dentistry services in Duluth that improve the appearance of your smile, and has long lasting results. That’s why Dr. George uses composite resin filling material, that is customized to match the natural color, to restore damaged teeth.
A crown can serve multiple functions at once by providing partial or complete coverage of a tooth. When your natural tooth has been weakened, a dental crown can restore a tooth’s form and function, making it stronger and improving the way it looks. Sugarloaf Smiles offers CEREC same-day crowns to repair damaged teeth quickly.
Early symptoms of gum disease are red, swollen, or bleeding gums and if left untreated it can eventually lead to tooth loss. Should we find any signs of gum disease during your exam, we’ll offer periodontal therapy solutions to quickly be able to take care of it.
It is not uncommon to see a patient cringe when they hear a root canal is needed. There is a widespread belief that root canal treatments are painful. Not true! In fact, you may need root canal to relieve pain. Root canal therapy is a treatment in which all the infected and damaged tissue from the interior of the tooth is cleaned out and replaced with a filling. In most cases, a root canal procedure removes enough of the tooth’s pulp that a dental crown is needed to restore and strengthen your tooth. Our team at Sugarloaf Smiles are experts at performing root canal therapy that is stress-free, effective and virtually painless for our patients.
If you have struggled with dental anxieties or nervousness, call us and let us help. Whether you’re in need of dental sedation due to phobia, tooth sensitivity, or another concern, Dr. George can suggest a number of safe sedation dentistry options to calm your nerves so you can receive gentle, effective, stress free dentistry at every appointment.

At Sugarloaf Smiles, our dentists believe that giving our patients extraordinary dental care includes offering cutting-edge techniques and a wide variety of cosmetic dentistry services to give you the healthy, beautiful smile you’ve always dreamed of. If tooth discoloration, chips, cracks, or other flaws cause you to feel insecure, you can get the smile of your dreams with cosmetic dentistry.
Here are a few of the procedures we have available to help you improve your teeth and create your best possible smile:
Thanks to professional teeth whitening, you can say goodbye to dull, dingy or yellow teeth and get that bright, white smile you’ve always wanted in about an hour. There are many different over-the-counter teeth whitening products out there and these at-home solutions often do not work and can wind up costing you more money in the long run. If you want a truly brighter smile, there’s no substitute for visiting your dentist. Dr. George uses the latest teeth whitening products to provide the very best teeth whitening services in Duluth, Marietta, and the surrounding communities.
Dental bonding is a conservative dental treatment in which a tooth-colored composite resin is applied to the teeth to conceal minor flaws and restore your smile when you have teeth that are chipped, fractured, decayed or discolored. Not only is it just a single-visit cosmetic dentistry treatment that can provide an instant, economical smile makeover, it can go a long way in restoring dental health too.
