When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, patients in the Anderson, SC area enjoy having choices available to them. Patients often look for dental professionals who use advanced technology and quality materials to achieve beautiful smiles. At Aesthetic Dentistry, patients in and around the community have the solutions available to them that can enhance their appearance and give them natural-looking cosmetic improvements.

What is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a specific focus on the aesthetics of the smile. Cosmetic procedures are often elective treatments that are performed to achieve a whiter smile or a more beautiful look when problems within the smile occur, including damage to the teeth or discoloration. Cosmetic dental procedures range in cost and time needed, but many of our patients find that our practice offers beautiful restorations at an affordable cost. Below are just a few of the more common cosmetic treatments available for patients to consider when they visit to enhance their smiles:

  • Porcelain veneers – imperfections on the front or anterior teeth can have a dramatic, negative impact on the appearance of the smile. We encourage patients to book a visit with Dr. James M. Groeber to find out if they are a viable candidate for porcelain veneers, which are thin ceramic facings custom-made to bond to the front of the natural teeth and cover problem areas. This may include misaligned, gapped, or broken teeth.
  • Dental crowns – covering teeth that have undergone root canal therapy, large fillings, or breakage with a strong and durable restoration is important to maintain the natural tooth structure and keep the tooth from experiencing more damage. Dental crowns are porcelain restorations made to cover the entire visible portion of the teeth to add an extra layer of protection and strength. They are made to blend in with the natural smile and are more often used on the back teeth than the anterior teeth.
  • Composite tooth-colored fillings – when cavities occur, it is important to get a filling to maintain the tooth structure and keep the condition from worsening. Fillings in the past were often performed by dentists using materials such as silver amalgam. This is a material made of 50 percent mercury, which can be toxic to the human body. Instead, our practice focuses on the use of safe and biocompatible materials, which is why we offer composite resin tooth-colored fillings for our patients. This is a safer and more aesthetic option that eliminates the chance of toxicity from mercury compounds.
  • Professional teeth whitening – patients with yellowed or discolored teeth may find that over-the-counter teeth whitening options fall short of providing the results they want. Instead, we offer professional teeth whitening solutions that give faster, longer-lasting results under the care and attention of our dental staff.
  • Dental implants – when teeth are missing, dental implants are often the option of choice for patients seeking long-term, beautiful, and strong solutions for tooth replacement. Implants are titanium posts that act as tooth roots and can be restored in a number of ways to restore function and beauty to the smile. Dental implants are often chosen by patients over dentures or dental bridges when it comes to reliable and effective tooth replacement solutions.
  • Smile makeovers – patients who have multiple cosmetic issues within the smile may also ask our team about smile makeovers. Also known as smile reconstruction, this is a combination of many of the above solutions done all at once or over time to completely transform the appearance of the teeth and gums. Some patients work together with their dentist to develop a treatment plan that meets their needs and budget while also enhancing their overall look. Our practice can develop a plan and provide payment arrangements to ensure treatment is affordable and attainable even for those on a tight budget.
