I’m tired of my dull smile. How can you help?
One of the most affordable options for reviving your smile is professional teeth whitening.
Over time, our teeth collect stains from the food and beverages we consume that causes a dull, dark appearance that makes you appear older than you are. With the Kör Deep Bleaching system, we combine in-office treatments with at-home whitening to maximize your results.
Having a whiter smile can give you the confidence to speak and laugh openly, and because whiter teeth always look healthier, you will be putting your best foot forward!
What tooth whitening products do you use?
Dr. Annan looked everywhere for a tooth whitening procedure that produced the kind of dramatic results our patients wanted. He tried numerous brands and was never “wowed” by the results until he tried KöR Deep Bleaching.
KöR provides consistent and predictable results for our patients. The results are uniform and restore your teeth to a naturally white shade. In fact, you can leave after your in-office treatment with your teeth already several shades lighter.
KöR removes all tooth staining, even if you’re a coffee drinker or use tobacco products. It also works on hard to whiten intrinsic (inside the teeth) stains caused by medications like the antibiotics Tetracycline and Doxycycline.
What problems do porcelain veneers fix?
Porcelain veneers at our Mount Pleasant, SC dental office are ultra-thin, tooth-shaped shells of porcelain that we bond to the front surfaces of teeth that show when you smile. Since they conceal the tooth beneath, we use porcelain veneers to address numerous issues such as:
- Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- Uneven gaps and spacing between teeth
- Mildly misaligned teeth
- Oddly shaped teeth
- Worn down teeth
- Teeth that appear too small
- Severe staining that resists whitening
While porcelain veneers create stunning smile transformations, we do slightly alter the shape of the teeth we are treating, so wearing veneers is a lifelong commitment.
What’s the difference between veneers and crowns?
A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that covers the front of a tooth–and usually used on the teeth that show when you smile. Our customized veneers can instantly change the color and shape of a tooth and make mildly crowded teeth appear straighter. Since dental veneers require some polishing of the tooth enamel to ensure a proper fit and appearance, they are considered a permanent treatment.
A crown can also be made of porcelain and is also used to change the color, shape and "straightness" of your smile. Unlike a veneer, the crown covers the entire tooth.
How do you use crowns in cosmetic dentistry?
Placing a dental crown requires altering the shape and size of your tooth, so the restoration feels natural and blends seamlessly with your smile. At East Cooper Smiles, our goal is to preserve healthy tooth structure whenever possible, so we don’t generally recommend crowns strictly for aesthetic purposes.
Dental bonding and veneers address many aesthetic problems, but if you have a tooth that is worn down, too small, or oddly positioned, a crown may be the best solution. Dr. Jason Annan will help you explore all your options and decide which cosmetic restoration is right for you.
What is dental bonding and how can it improve my smile?
Dental bonding is a non-invasive treatment that utilizes tooth-colored filling material to build up a tooth to alter its shape, size, and shade. The material is customized to match the color of the surrounding teeth seamlessly.
We often use bonding to correct problems such as:
- Chipped or broken teeth
- Teeth that appear too short
- Uneven gaps and spacing
- Severe dental staining
Cosmetic bonding is straightforward, and Dr. Annan can usually treat several teeth during one appointment. And, since we don’t have to remove any healthy tooth structure, bonding is reversible.
How can I straighten my teeth without metal braces?
Most adults who want orthodontics don’t want to deal with metal brackets and wires. If you are a professional or have an active social life, you probably feel like committing to traditional orthodontics is not realistic.
If you want to straighten crooked teeth in Mount Pleasant, we offer two of the most effective, least invasive methods available on the market today.
Invisalign invisible braces – Invisalign utilizes clear plastic trays to move your teeth over time gradually. The length of treatment depends upon the extent of your misalignment. Invisalign is an excellent option for people who want flexibility because the clear aligner trays are removable for eating and oral hygiene.
Six Month Braces – If you want to straighten only the teeth that are visible when you smile, Six Month Braces provides the solution you need. This innovative system moves teeth quickly, and average treatment times are only about six months. Since treatment is shorter with Six Month Braces, treatment is more affordable than other adult orthodontics.
If you would like to learn more about adult orthodontics, call our office to schedule an evaluation. Dr. Annan will explain the pros and cons of both treatments so you can feel confident in your decision to move forward with cosmetic orthodontics.
What Are Six Month Smiles braces?
Six Month Braces is an adult orthodontic system that allows for targeted treatment straighten the teeth that show when you smile. For this reason, we can complete your treatment in as little as six months. Shorter treatment times make Six Month Smiles more affordable than metal orthodontics that require periodic adjustments with your dentist.
Six-Month Smiles at our Mount Pleasant dental office are discreet and allow you to eat and maintain good dental hygiene with very little oral irritation. Please call us to arrange an orthodontic consultation if you're interested.
How does Invisalign treatment work?
Invisalign’s series of clear plastic aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth and straighten your smile with little-to-no maintenance or adjustment and fewer dentist visits than standard metal braces.
During treatment with Invisalign, you wear each set of aligners for about two weeks. As time goes by each new set of aligners comfortably and gently straightens your teeth to bring you closer and closer to the smile you most desire!
Invisalign allows for quick and easy aligner removal that keeps food enjoyable while giving you the power to maintain good dental hygiene throughout the straightening process.
