Our Orangeburg, SC Cosmetic
Cosmetic dental services provide patients with confidence and a younger looking smile. Your smile is your single most important physical feature and sticks with you for life! That being said, when you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, it affects all aspects of your life. Thankfully, at Edisto Dental Associates, we provide patients in Orangeburg cosmetic dentistry that can improve the look of your smile.
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry refers to any dental treatment that is primarily concerned with improving the appearance of your teeth or smile. While cosmetic dental procedures are mainly aesthetic in nature, most treatments also improve the health and function of the oral structures. For example, straightening misaligned teeth not only improves the look of your smile, it also can improve your bite, the health of surrounding teeth and the health of your gums.
Our Cosmetic Dental Services
We offer many options when it comes to cosmetic dental procedures. Whether you are unhappy with the shade of your teeth or whether you are in need of a dramatic smile makeover, we have the knowledge and expertise to give you the smile you want and deserve. Below are just some of the cosmetic services that we offer:
One of the fastest, easiest and most affordable cosmetic procedures available is teeth whitening. Teeth whitening services allow our patients to quickly improve the look of their smile. The benefits of whitening your smile includes enjoying higher confidence, a younger looking smile, and more positive social interactions. Here are some of the whitening and teeth bleaching services that we offer:
Our Zoom whitening procedure is a professional, in-office bleaching procedure that requires whitening gel and an activating light to safely and quickly whiten the teeth. The process is quick- just three 15 minute increments. Usually, patients can expect to see their smile whitening up to 8 shades.
Take Home Bleaching
At our practice, we also offer take-home bleaching for patients who may enjoy the privacy and flexibility of whitening their smile on their own time. This process requires us to create customized trays that you fill with whitening gel and wear for a specific amount of time. The amount of time you wear the trays will be determined by our dentists and depends on the amount of whitening you need.
Veneers are an easy way to get a dramatically improved smile. This procedure uses very thin, tooth-colored shells that are placed directly over the visible part of an unattractive tooth.
Lumineers are very similar to veneers. The main difference is that lumineers are even thinner, roughly the thickness of a contact lens. This procedure is better for minor changes such as elongating teeth or covering a minor chip.
This procedure helps our dentists to improve a tooth’s appearance. Bonding is simply composite resin material that can be molded and placed over a tooth needing a makeover. The advantage to this procedure is that it is simple, quick and the material can be molded in any way needed.
This procedure refers to the removal of gum tissue around the tooth. This procedure can improve the appearance of a “gummy” smile or the appearance of a tooth that is just too short. Gingivectomy can also help treat gum disease.
Orthodontics allow our dentists to improve the appearance of a misaligned smile. This area of dentistry focuses on straightening crooked, widely gapped, misaligned teeth. Straightening teeth is a cosmetic procedure but it also improves the health of your smile. For more information on our orthodontic services, simply call our office.
