Our Approach to a Smile Makeover

Our doctors believe in taking a conservative approach to all dentistry, achieving the best results with the least amount of treatment. Each case is evaluated individually. Your doctor wants to get to know you and understand your expectations, your goals for the appearance of your smile, and your budgetary considerations.

Although cosmetic dentistry is primarily focused on appearance, our doctors believe that a strong foundation of good oral health is the first step towards creating a lovely smile that you can flash proudly.

Our doctors take a very thorough approach to designing your new smile. Steps may include the following:

  • Full oral examination
  • TMJ and bite alignment check
  • Custom smile analysis to ensure your smile is properly proportioned
  • Digital imaging software to preview how your smile can look
  • Taking digital photographs in various positions for planning and presentation
  • Taking impressions to create study models of your mouth
  • Building a prototype known as a “wax-up” and manipulating it to idealize your smile
  • Using shade guides to select the perfect tone for your teeth
  • Using temporary restorations to test your bite; taking digital photographs and sending them to our lab for consultation and fabrication

After you have had the opportunity to “test drive” your smile, we partner with the world-class VIVIDX lab when creating your final restorations. We have a direct relationship with our own technicians who are truly artists. Your restoration will never be sent to China or a dental mill for fabrication.

Our High-Tech Cosmetic Procedures

Minimal Preparation Veneers

To correct certain flaws, our doctors use very thin porcelain veneers that require little or no shaving of the surface of the tooth. Veneers may be used to give teeth a permanent whitening, to straighten mildly crooked teeth, change the shape or length of teeth, close gaps and cover chips.

Dental Bonding

With dental bonding, our doctors can fix many of the same cosmetic flaws that are corrected with veneers. This tooth-colored composite is similar to the material used for fillings and provides an economical alternative to porcelain veneers.

Teeth Whitening

We offer at-home teeth whitening with Opalescence. Your whitening treatment is customized to your specific needs.

Invisalign® Teeth Straightening

With Invisalign®, we provide teeth straightening for adults and teens. The clear plastic aligners are nearly invisible and can be removed when eating, cleaning your teeth, or for special occasions.

Dental Implants

We can provide full dental implant services in one convenient location. Dr. Pennington or Dr. Greer will insert the implant post, and either they or Dr. Parker will design a comfortable, well-fitting restoration. Dental implants are truly the modern solution for replacing missing teeth, and they provide a very natural look, feel, and function.

Cosmetic Laser Gum Treatment

To create a more aesthetically pleasing smile, our doctors can use a laser to gently remove excess tissue to even out a gum line or fix a smile that shows too much gum.

Crown Lengthening for Gummy Smiles

If you feel that your teeth look too short or that your gums cover too much of your teeth, you probably have what is known as a “gummy” smile. This condition can be quickly and easily remedied with a procedure called crown lengthening. Our doctors use soft tissue lasers to gently remove excess gum tissue and expose more of the natural tooth.

Lasers provide the benefit of sealing the ends of blood vessels during the procedure, so there is no need for cutting or suturing and little or no discomfort following the treatment.

Gum Re-Contouring to Straighten Gum Lines

Even if your teeth are healthy, straight and white, an uneven gum line can adversely affect the aesthetics of your smile. The soft tissue laser procedure used to sculpt gummy smiles is also used for altering an uneven gum line. Excess gum tissue is removed around a single tooth or teeth to create a more consistent appearance.

Before & After Invisalign® Cases

This patient was unhappy with her existing crowns and received new porcelain crowns.

Erosion and wear had shortened this patient’s front teeth. Porcelain restorations restored his smile.

Porcelain crowns replaced discolored crowns that didn’t match the patient’s natural teeth.

Chewing on her back teeth was difficult for this patient. Porcelain restorations allowed her to eat normally again.

As always, a pleasant, timely and professional appointment. I have been a patient of this practice since 1996 and cannot even think about being anywhere other than with Dr. Sid, Dr. Jeff and Dr. Ben!

We travel full time in our RV and, 7 years ago, had a need for a dentist. We chose Parker and Pennington for that visit and have been returning every year for our dentistry needs. The dentists and staff are professional, friendly and compassionate.

I'm always afraid to go to a new dentist. When I moved here I was determined to find one that truly cares about their work and doing it right. Hands down, they surpassed my expectations.The friendliest staff you will ever come across too.Thank you!!
Trista Grissom Grandey
During the summer of 2023, I came to Parker, Pennington & Greer with the situation of neglected, missing, and deteriorating teeth. After much research, I decided to enlist the services and professional abilities of Dr. Sid Parker, Dr Ben Greer, Dee, and their outstanding PPG support staff, Tiffany, Jennifer, Elizabeth, and Allison, to restore my oral health and oral quality of life.Collectively Dr. Parker, Dr Greer, Dee, and I discussed options, and came up with a plan and are in the process of “exceptional results”. The plan consisted of removal of the existing upper and lower teeth, the installation of four implants to secure a lower denture with a removable upper denture. The initial procedure was completed in approximately a five-hour period on the last day of July 2023. For the record using anesthesia and basic pain meds I remained comfortable throughout the entire process (I incurred no major pain) to include the few days of the recuperation phase. I do have limited recollections of the actual process performed, quite sporadic and fuzzy, which is probably just as well.I did come home the day of the process with the bottom denture in place and secured. I have to say it was quite a surprise to have my teeth torqued down to hold them in place, but it is part of territory….., the following day I received the upper denture. The current dentures are temporary and in the not-too-distant future I will be receiving permanent dentures. It is now the early part of November 2023, and I am well into the healing process. The overall completion is slated for January 2024.At this point I have no negative issues with the existing dentures. I have repeatedly been encouraged by Dr. Parker and his staff to contact them for anything in relation to the dentures and the work performed. Any issues / concerns I have had have been immediately addressed and remedied. Courtesy phone calls and emails to check on situations and corrections are provided personally and are much appreciated.These are highly professional people who very much place customer service as one of their highest priorities. The knowledge level and care demonstrated in the services provided are “top notch”, “unsurpassed”, I highly recommend Parker, Pennington & Greer Dentistry. To folks that are new to the area or shopping for dental care, it is this old man’s opinion you will not go wrong with these folks. They are fair and provide a very high level of service to the patient.Safe to say these folks in “little old Saint Mary’s Georgia are providing world class dentistry. The can-do attitude blended with his down-home modesty is a statement of why Dr. Parker, his talents and his staff are in such demand.To the entire staff that helped during my procedure MY HAT IS OFF TO ALL OF YOU, Thank You….. Having Parker, Pennington & Greer and the PPG staff perform this work for me and reclaiming my dental quality of life is like hitting the lottery. I am incredibly pleased with the outcome.To sum up my experience with PPG and their staff I would say, “intense”, due to the nature of the services performed. I would say, “highly professional”, due to expertise, knowledge, and technique to achieve the desired outcome. I would say “gratifying”, due to the transformation (before and after), The empathy and caring demonstrated by the team…..Thank You

Excellent care!!! As soon as you enter the door you feel like you are a part of this dental care family. It’s amazing! You will hear laughter and coworker’s helping each other. I have never had a dentist like Dr. Pennington. He has been so gracious in tackling my dental issues coupled with my paralyzing fear of the dental chair. He is surrounded by a fabulous team! They truly work together to ensure the patient is their priority!
