How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Help?

Feeling confident when we laugh, smile, or speak can dramatically improve our day-to-day lives, and increase self-confidence. Some of the following dental issues can be corrected with cosmetic dentistry are:

  • Filling in spaces or gaps in between the teeth.
  • Replacing teeth which have been removed or knocked out.
  • Adjusting or altering the size, shape, or alignment of specific teeth.
  • Improving or correcting a patient’s bite.
  • Brightening and whitening the appearance of teeth.
  • Replacing old dental procedures, such as crowns or metal fillings.
  • Repairing chipped, broken, or cracked teeth.

How Can We Help? Our Cosmetic Dental Procedures:

The first step to feeling confident in your smile is to discuss your options with our dentist. She will be able to help you select the appropriate procedures to solve your problems and leave you feeling happy and secure in your smile.

Some of the procedures we offer to help our customers are:

  • Teeth whitening. Teeth often become stained or discolored over time. If you are a heavy smoker, are taking specific medications which stain your teeth, or if you have spent a lifetime drinking black tea and coffee, this procedure may be ideal for you.
  • Veneers. Veneers are custom shells which are placed over a damaged or misaligned tooth and are usually made of resin or porcelain to mimic the look of your natural teeth.
  • Composite Bonding. Composite materials are used to fill gaps between teeth, or to fill in issues such as chips, cracks, and even small cavities which may be present in the teeth.
  • Crowns. Crowns are fittings which completely cover the top and sides of a tooth to protect it from further damage. Often, a crown is used to hold a dental bridge in place, correcting several oral issues at once.

Restore Your Confidence

Without a doubt, the most common piece of feedback that we at Carolina Oaks Dental Care hear from our patients is how much better they feel after their cosmetic dental procedure. By resolving issues with the shape, color, and alignment of their teeth, patients feel confident and secure in their smile- something which affects every area of their lives in a positive way.
