Are you worried about your smile? Each smile design begins with a thorough analysis of your whole mouth and oral health; the Goose Creek Dentist will take x-rays, and maybe get a 3D image of the inside of your mouth, to determine how to start restoring your smile.
Goose Creek Dentists Dr. Barganier and Dr. Bale will answer any and all questions you may have and take your ultimate smile goals into account when creating your smile design treatment plan, which could include one or several dental procedures.
Some of our cosmetic services include orthodontics, bonding, teeth whitening, veneers, and more! Your individual smile design plan will be custom-made to fit your aesthetic desires, your goals, and your budget, and will be determined in a comprehensive consultation with your Goose Creek dentist.
If your confidence suffers because of stains, chips, gaps, or malformed teeth, veneers may be the perfect way to get your smile back. Using custom-made shells that are nearly identical to natural teeth, veneers alter the front side of your teeth, crafting your ideal smile.
First, Goose Creek Dentist Dr. Barganier or Dr. Bale will create a custom mold of your teeth, which is sent to a specially trained veneer technician. The technician then designs veneers that uniquely fit your teeth and form the smile you have always wanted. Depending on your situation, it may be necessary for your dentist to make slight adjustments to your teeth for the best results.
Once your veneers have been fitted, you will notice that they are nearly indistinguishable from natural teeth. Goose Creek Dentists Dr. Barganier and Dr. Bale sometimes advise that patients with veneers steer clear of tobacco, coffee, tea, and red wine, even though veneers are resistant to stains because they cannot be whitened later.
Bonding is one the easiest, quickest, most inexpensive treatments available for minor instances of crooked, chipped, or discolored teeth. Bonding involves the use of a filling that is applied to your teeth to achieve your desired aesthetic results. Because the filling is available in nearly every possible shade, it blends perfectly with your teeth while simultaneously repairing your smile.
In addition to fixing slight cosmetic issues, bonding’s function well as a filling for cavities. In fact, a significant number of patients find that they favor bonded fillings over amalgam fillings because they blend in with the tooth, whereas, silver amalgam fillings are quite noticeable.
Bonding is a convenient choice because it costs less than similar treatments and can often be taken care of in a single visit. However, bonding treatments are susceptible to stains and less durable than their treatment counterparts. If you have a bonding that is chipped or broken, let us know, and we can usually fix it in one visit.
Please contact our Goose Creek Dentist office if you have questions about bonding or are in need of bonding repair. Call us at – Existing Patients: (843) 553-5235 or New Patients: (843) 779-9445 – to schedule an appointment!
With all the over-the-counter remedies and professional techniques for whitening your teeth, making the right choice for your unique situation can be a tedious process. While there is no harm in doing the research and selecting a preferred method on your own, your best bet is scheduling an appointment to discuss your options with Goose Creek Dentists Dr. Jason Barganier, Dr. Emma Bale, or one of our professional dental hygienists.
“In-office” whitening is the most common method of brightening your smile that involves a trip to your dentist. Professional, or “in-office,” whitening refers to treatment with a hydrogen-peroxide-based whitening gel enhanced by a special lamp or whitening laser. The application of the light during the procedure accelerates the whitening effect achieved by the peroxide, so you will see results immediately after the procedure is over. A professional whitening visit usually takes about 90 minutes and consists of two simple steps. Applying the whitening gel to your teeth and then we will treat your teeth with a light source. After the procedure is over, you will have a noticeably brighter smile.
Another common type of professional whitening is known as tray bleaching. You can only get this treatment through your dentist, but the treatment itself takes place at home. During a visit to Goose Creek our dentists Dr. Barganier or Dr. Bale will fit you with custom trays, and provide whitening gel. At home, you simply fill the trays with the gel and place them in your mouth. Because they are specifically created for your unqiue mouth, the fit is perfect and every natural tooth is whitened evenly. This process uses a peroxide-based whitener, which works by producing chemicals that remove stains and actively whiten teeth. Tray whitening is a professional method, so it’s pricier than store-bought options, and may contain comfort-enhancing ingredients. Results are often achieved in 10 to 14 days, but become noticeable in as little as three to five days.
