Posted by Floretta Sutton on Jul 25, 2011 2:25:00 PM

Your smile is normally the first characteristic feature other people see, but for many people, tooth decay or tooth loss has made sharing their smile difficult. If you are you missing one tooth or more, you probably know the embarrassment of sharing your smile.

With the cutting-edge technology of today, our Cosmetic Dentistry Specialists are capable of performing various strategically personalized dental procedures for enhancing and protecting your unique smile. Even the slightest adjustment made to your smile will provide a pleasing difference in your appearance and the way you feel about yourself.

The Cosmetic Dentistry Specialists in our Columbia, South Carolina office are able to tailor a treatment plan that is based on your individual needs and wants. Being members of the American Dental Association (ADA), our company will provide you with high quality results you can actually afford. Still unsure of what our Cosmetic Dentistry Specialists can do for you? Here are just a few examples of what we can do for you:

Dental Implants – The most comfortable and natural-looking way to replace a missing or badly damaged tooth. Implant (fixed) Bridges – Designed to replace missing teeth with a natural look and feel. This is done by attaching artificial teeth directly to the jaw or directly under the gum tissue and then bonded to surrounding natural teeth.

Removable Bridge – Allows you to replace several missing teeth and still provides you with the ability to remove the bridge on a daily basis for oral cleansing.

Dentures – This option is if you have already lost all of your natural teeth. There are many life-long health and facial appearance benefits of dentures. They can make you look up to 20 years younger instantly! With immediate dentures, you will not have to go weeks without teeth while your gums are healing.

Removable Partial Dentures – An excellent option for substituting randomly missing teeth with artificial teeth. This is done by inserting a metal bridge that is secured with metal clasps. Bonding – The perfect fix for a chipped, cracked, or broken tooth. It is also perfect for closing up gaps between teeth by using a tooth-colored material that is applied directly onto the teeth.

Crowns – Placed on a weakened tooth to aid in protecting it from further damage. Enamel Shaping – A quick modification by removing and shaping your natural enamel for immediate results.

Tooth Whitening – The process of professionally brightening dull, stained, or discolored teeth.

Veneers– Extremely thin and custom-made casings that are placed over the front portion of your natural tooth. Veneers are used to fill gaps, cover dull and stained teeth, or simply enhance the shape of your natural teeth for a more attractive smile.

Since there are so many options available for you to choose from, your next step would be to schedule a consultation. We encourage you to meet with one of our highly-trained Cosmetic Dentistry Specialists today so you can begin showing off your beautiful smile once again!
