Cosmetic Dentistry in Columbia, SC
Our smiles take quite a bit of beating throughout the years. Between stains from food and drinks, poor dental habits, and general wear and tear, it’s normal for your smile to look a bit dim. Whether you’re looking to completely revamp your smile or just a quick enhancement, we can help you.
Veneers are thin, porcelain shells which are bonded to the front of your natural teeth. This cosmetic treatment is a great way to achieve a natural-looking, uniform smile. Veneers work to correct several dental issues, including tooth color, shape, and size. The process of getting veneers usually entails a few visits. During your first visit, we will discuss your smile goals and create a treatment plan to achieve them. Next, we will shape your teeth to allow the veneers to sit properly over your natural teeth. The last step is physically bonding the veneers to your teeth.
If your smile is feeling a bit dull but you don’t quite need a smile makeover from veneers, whitening may be the solution for you. While over-the-counter whitening treatments and generic trays can be beneficial, they often don’t produce the same level of results as custom trays. We offer custom tray whitening that is designed to remove stains and enhance the brightness of your smile. Custom trays allow the bleaching gel to sit properly on your teeth while also eliminating potential leakage.
Implants are used for tooth replacement and to enhance the visual appeal of your smile. This treatment involves fusing small, titanium posts to your jawbone that act as an artificial tooth root. Once this is completed, the connective structure, also called an abutment, is placed and your customized restoration will be connected. Implants often serve as the foundation for dental crowns, bridges, and dentures. With proper care, implants can last you a lifetime.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
Damaged or missing teeth can leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile. Dental crowns and bridges allow you to boost your confidence with natural-looking restorations. Crowns are customized caps that are permanently cemented to your natural tooth in order to protect it from further damage and improve its appearance. Similarly, dental bridges consist of two or more dental crowns with false teeth in between. The crowns will be attached to the teeth surrounding your gap and the false teeth will fit perfectly within the empty space.
