Learn more about our available cosmetic services below:

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a fast and effective way to remove years of stains from your dental structures. Common foods and beverages leave behind staining agents on your teeth, aging your smile over time. At Proud Smiles in Sandy Springs, Dr. Paulen offers three convenient options for teeth whitening: in-office Boost teeth whitening, an at-home custom bleaching tray kit, and KoR intensive at home or in-office deep whitening. Each offers results far superior to over the counter options with the added benefit of enamel protection and reduced sensitivity.

Porcelain Veneers

If you want to conceal chipped, stained, or misshapen teeth, porcelain veneers are an excellent option to consider. Replacing only the front-facing portion of an affected tooth, a porcelain veneer acts as a cosmetic cap. It will change the outward appearance of your tooth without messing with the functionality of your natural tooth beneath the veneer. We also offer Lumineers in our Sandy Springs dentist office. Lumineers are the most commonly requested dental veneer available. Patients love the quick, natural results that Lumineers offer with minimal to no tooth preparation. Lumineers cover cosmetic blemishes creating a flawless, confident smile.

Dental Implants

Missing a tooth? Let us help you permanently replace it in the new year. With dental implants, our experienced team can give you long-lasting restorative benefits. Dental implants involve a surgically implanted titanium post which, once fully healed, gives your restoration tooth-root functionality. This means no dietary restrictions and no bridge hardware to brush and floss around. With implants, all the restorative hardware is protected by your own soft tissues. Whether you have lost a tooth due to periodontitis, tooth decay or an injury, Dr. Paulen can help restore your smile and your dental health with a beautiful new dental implant that looks and functions just like a real tooth.

Tooth Bonding

Tooth bonding is a conservative approach to cosmetic dentistry. It allows us to conceal minor blemishes on your dental structures within just one appointment. Using a similar resin material to dental fillings, tooth bonding allows Dr. Paulen to discreetly correct minor chips, stains, or cracks. With a thin coat of resin that is hardened to your tooth using ultraviolet light, tooth bonding can quickly correct these small blemishes that may be having a big impact on the overall appearance of your smile.


2021 is the year to pursue your dream smile. To help with this, our office offers Invisalign clear braces. With Invisalign, patients can straighten their crooked teeth using see-through aligners. This means no metal braces, dietary restrictions, or oral hygiene hassles. Simply wear the Invisalign aligners daily. Over time, the aligners will apply pressure to your dental structures and encourage them to shift into a straighter position.

Cosmetic dentistry is not only about enhancing the beauty of your natural smile, but it can also support long term dental health.
