Cosmetic Dental Services Overview

Do you catch yourself hiding your smile? If aesthetic imperfections like discoloration, misshaped teeth or bad alignment have you feeling less-than-confident in your smile, consider our cosmetic dentistry services that can greatly improve the appearance of your teeth. Just let us know what you don’t like, and we’ll let you know what we can do to help! Below are some ways CarolinasDentist can help bring your smile back to life!

Veneers are a popular cosmetic dental treatment because they can fix a number of different things when it comes to how your teeth look. They can be used to make teeth longer, cover severe discoloration, fix minor spacing issues, restore worn down teeth, and more! Essentially, they are super-thin shells that we bond to the front of your teeth. They’re designed to blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth, and they’re highly durable (they can last up to 20 years with proper care!). With veneers, you’ll be able to design the smile you’ve always wanted.

If you’re looking for a simple, affordable way to dramatically improve the appearance of your smile, then professional teeth whitening may be the option you’re looking for. Over time, it’s normal for our teeth to become dull or discolored because of the things we eat or because of the natural aging process. When that happens, you can use one of our teeth whitening treatments to get your teeth 8 to 14 shades whiter.

In-Office Whitening with Zoom

With Zoom Whitening, we can whiten your teeth at our office in just one 90-minute appointment. You’ll be able to walk out that same day with bright pearly whites! Zoom is a powerful whitening gel that works faster and better than drugstore whitening strips to make your smile the exact shade of white that you would like.

At-Home Whitening

For patients who’d rather whiten their teeth on their own time instead of at our office, we can create custom bleaching trays, specifically molded based on their teeth. We’ll give you the gel and instructions, and you’ll be all set for brightening your teeth when it’s convenient for you. While this treatment may take a little bit longer (typically 10 to 14 days), you’ll still get professional-level results.

Orthodontics is all about fixing the way your teeth fit together, whether that’s crowding, gaps, overbites, underbites, or other kinds of misalignment. With recent advancements in dentistry, those noticeable conventional braces aren’t your only option anymore when you want a straighter smile. We provide Invisalign® as a convenient option for today’s modern patients (yes, for both kids and adults!).
