Types of cosmetic dentistry procedures available through Charleston dental practice
Charleston, SC area patients who are interested in cosmetic dental procedures are often interested in learning more about the types of treatments available from the team at Mouth Carolina Dentistry. Dr. Andrew Greenberg and his team are committed to ensuring patients have access to aesthetic improvements for their smile, including the following services:
- Tooth-colored fillings – when cavities occur, patients should get a proper diagnosis early enough for the dentist to successfully intervene. Most dental practices use silver amalgam to fill areas of decay, but this material is made of high levels of mercury and is not as safe and effective as tooth-colored fillings. Dr. Andrew Greenberg uses composite resin for fillings because it is safer and more aesthetic than silver amalgam fillings.
- Porcelain veneers – disguising problem areas near the front of the smile can be done with the use of porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin facings made of ceramic that cover imperfections that may be present, including chipped, cracked, or gapped teeth.
- Professional teeth whitening – while the local drugstore may offer a wide range of teeth whitening products such as strips, trays, and pens, many of these fall short of ensuring results. Instead, Dr. Andrew Greenberg encourages patients to speak to him about professional whitening options, including our custom-made whitening trays and at-home bleaching kits. These can brighten the smile quickly and easily within just a few weeks and are more economical than other in-office treatments performed at other dental practices in the area.
- Composite resin bonding – imperfections can also be addressed with the same material used for tooth-colored dental fillings. Composite resin is a clay-like material that can be placed onto a prepared tooth, shaped in place, cured, and filed to look just like natural tooth enamel. This versatile product is used regularly in general and cosmetic dentistry.
