Estelle Zandstra’s Dental Services
Referred to as general dentistry, preventive care is the most important type of dentistry because it helps maintain the overall health of your teeth, gums, and other oral tissues. Dr. Estelle Zandstra and her team perform regular preventive care on their patients which helps find problems before they become serious, helps keep your teeth clean and bright, and can even detect oral cancer or other problems using special dental technology.
Get Fixed Single Implant Teeth with Dr. Zandstra
Dental implants with artificial teeth are the closest thing to regrowing your natural teeth. They are strong, stable, durable and virtually undetectable. By filling gaps left by missing teeth, implants can provide better chewing ability and protect your facial bone and jaw by promoting bone growth instead of bone loss that is typical of traditional dentures.
All-on-4 Fixed Implant Dentures
Dental implants are tooth replacements that return full form and function to your smile after tooth loss. While traditional dentures are a common solution for replacing multiply unsalvageable or missing teeth, full arch dental implants are an alternative that many patients are choosing for their permanence, stability, and a lifelike appearance. Full arch implants involve strategic placement of four to six implants within the jaw, which securely support a beautiful set of replacement teeth. When partnering with Dr. Estelle Zandstra, in Alpharetta Georgia for your full arch dental implant procedure, you never have to go without teeth!
Stabilize Your Existing Dentures
Dr. Zandstra places two implants in the lower arch and usually four implants in the upper arch to affix your existing dentures to. The snap heads on the implants can be affixed to either your existing denture if it’s in good shape and that has ideal fitment, or Dr. Zandstra can create a whole new full arch denture from top-quality cosmetic materials which will give you an excellent fit and allow you to enjoy life, laugh, and eat what you want again.
Treating Facial Pain with Dr. Zandstra
Do you suffer from headaches, facial pain, clicking or popping in the jaw? If so, you could have Temporomandibular joint disorder (oftentimes called TMJ or TMD). Dr. Zandstra can help improve your overall quality of life by alleviating your TMD symptoms. Your jaw is at the center of many important physiological systems such as nerves, blood vessels, muscles, and your airway, so TMD issues can have a dramatic effect on your overall health and happiness. Oftentimes a misaligned jaw can have a dramatic impact on the rest of your body.
Digital Sedation Helps You Relax
Dr. Zandstra invested in the latest Digital Sedation VR technology by OperaVR to help you feel comfortable while you’re receiving your treatment. With our virtual reality “Digital Nitrous” solution, you’ll feel relaxed and your dentistry will be completed while you’re exploring a tropical beach, swimming on a coral reef, or seeing beautiful nature scenes.
Dr. Zandstra is now offering a virtually pain-free patient experience with Anutra Local Anesthetic Delivery System. Typical anesthetic systems give patients a burning sensation right after injection which can be uncomfortable and last several minutes, but with our Anutra anesthetic system, patients become almost instantly and profoundly numb and it helps Dr. Zandstra to speed up her procedures since there is less waiting to become numb, so your appointments are shorter!

Veneers are very thin porcelain pieces that are custom-made to adhere directly to the front of teeth without grinding or shaving. Transform your smile without drilling on your natural teeth!
In the hands of a highly skilled dentist, porcelain veneers can provide you with an incredibly natural, beautiful smile.
The common silver filling contains mercury. Dr. Zandstra uses the highest-quality biocompatible, tooth-colored restorations to create healthy, beautiful smiles. Since the composite material adheres directly to the tooth enamel, less preparation of the tooth is required before using it. This means it is more durable and provides a more natural-looking result.
Sleep Apnea Treatment
Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the airway completely collapses, blocking airflow into the lungs. Dr. Zandstra offers effective, nonsurgical relief from sleep apnea and other sleep-related disorders – including snoring. Ask us how you can get the restful, healthy sleep you’ve been missing.
Gum disease is treated by carefully removing the bacteria and substances that form in the pockets around the teeth. The removal of this material occurs on a microscopic level and requires great skill. Our dental team has had advanced training to effectively remove all of the bacteria.
The dental lasers used by Dr. Zandstra are extremely effective at being able to precisely cut through the enamel, making them an ideal option for removing teeth and bone with great accuracy. This includes everything from shaping a tooth before getting a dental crown and shaving down uneven tooth structure to repairing old dental fillings. Soft-tissue lasers can be used to reshape gummy smiles, lengthen the appearance of teeth, repair soft tissue defects, treat cold sores, remove benign tumors or even sleep apnea treatment.
The Bad Bite
The way teeth fit together is a serious issue. An “off bite” can ruin your day; lead to poor sleep or facial, head, or neck pain; cause mobility of the teeth, and be generally irritating all the time. Using prosthodontic diagnostic skills and state-of-the-art digital T-scan bite force technology, Dr. Zandstra has diagnosed and solves bad bite issues for her patients. Her understanding of biology and science and her attention to detail enables her to diagnose her patients accurately and properly treat their bite issues.
Porcelain Crowns & Bridges
Dr. Zandstra, as a prosthodontist and student of the oral system, is uniquely qualified to create crowns and bridges that replicate the natural feel and appearance of your teeth. With our state-of-the-art techniques, even badly broken down teeth or uncomfortable existing crowns can often be saved. Using digital computer technology, we create an ideal copy of your existing tooth. Whether you have health concerns about one tooth, many teeth, or missing teeth, you can be assured that we take a scientific and artistic approach to create each and every tooth design. The physiologic health, comfort, function, and beauty of the tooth as it fits in the mouth and body are Dr. Zandstra’s main concerns.
Crowns should be placed before the tooth is so decayed that it may fracture. This can often help prevent the expense of root canal therapy in the future. If a tooth is too damaged to have a crown applied, a porcelain bridge may be a good alternative.
If a tooth or teeth are too damaged to have a crown applied, a porcelain bridge may be a good alternative. Designed to bridge the gap between one or more missing teeth, a bridge anchors to the neighboring natural teeth or dental implants.
