What Cosmetic Dentistry Can Do For Your Smile

How a cosmetic dental procedure from your Columbia, South Carolina dentist can help your smile

If your smile is less-than-wonderful due to everyday wear-and-tear, aging, smoking, drinking coffee or some other genetic or lifestyle cosmetic dentistryissue, it’s time to take action and help your smile. Cosmetic dentistry can help you look your best, so you feel your best. It’s time for you to increase your self-confidence and self-esteem by reshaping your smile. Dr. Joel E. Johnson in Columbia, South Carolina, wants to share what veneers, teeth-whitening and crowns can do for your smile.

Porcelain veneers are a common cosmetic dentistry procedure that can provide dramatic results. Porcelain veneers are thin sheaths of porcelain which are permanently cemented over the front surfaces of teeth. They are a conservative procedure because Dr. Johnson will only remove a minimal amount of tooth structure, just thick enough to accommodate the veneers. Porcelain veneers are the natural-looking, beautiful way to correct teeth that are:

  • Badly broken or cracked
  • Spaced unevenly apart
  • Excessively worn down from aging
  • Heavily discolored from medications or lifestyle

A teeth whitening treatment is a very popular way to whiten your teeth up to 8 shades whiter and the dramatic results can last up to 5 years! You can take away years of yellowing from aging or diminish the effects of smoking or drinking coffee. Dr. Johnson offers a quick in-office whitening treatment that takes an hour, or a convenient kit you can take home. The kit has everything you need to whiten your teeth when the time is right for you.

Dental crowns can improve both the appearance and the function of your teeth. You can replace old, unsightly, bulky metal fillings with a strong, long-lasting dental crown. Dr. Johnson offers same day crowns, the revolutionary, completely natural-looking porcelain crowns that can be delivered in about 2 hours! You can have a new smile in just a couple of hours!
