Dental veneers are very thin, custom made shells of tooth colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, size, or length. Porcelain veneers help resist stains and mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. These are just two ways that we can get your teeth looking white and new. We strive daily to ensure that our customers are satisfied with our dentistry and hard work.

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and/or to improve its appearance. The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. A dental restoration is used to restore the function, integrity and shape of missing tooth structure. The structural loss typically results from tooth decay, cavities, or external trauma. Dental restoration also refers to the replacement of missing tooth structure. We can restore your teeth exactly how you desire. We have all the capabilities, experience, and up to date technologies to allow for the best smile possible.

If you want to keep teeth in great condition, professional teeth cleanings are critical in maintaining teeth that are healthy and plaque-free. Most people believe that brushing and flossing is enough to preserve a beautiful smile.

This service is essential for protecting the longevity of your teeth. We use all the up to date methods to ensure that your teeth are healthy and vibrant for years to come. It is important to get regular check ups to ensure the health of your teeth. It is easier to treat the problem earlier than if you are to wait it can worsen any problems that might be building up without you even knowing.

Root canal therapy is done when decay will likely damage or has already killed a tooth. During a root canal, the pulp is removed from the center of a tooth then the pulp cavity is filled. This can prevent the development of a painful infection in the pulp. A root canal can also treat an infection that has developed into an abscessed tooth. This procedure can relieve toothache, stop infection, and promote healing. At Carolina Aesthetic and Restorative Dentistry we are committed to enhancing people’s lives by way of dental health. The Dental Pulp is highly vascularized with tons of sensory endings. So if you are in need of a root canal it is most likely that the dental pulp has been negatively effected. The dental pulp nourishes and hydrates the tooth structure, making the tooth more resilient, less brittle and less prone to fracture from chewing hard foods. The dental pulp provides a hot and cold sensory function, so if it is infected or negatively impacted it can effect the overall health of your teeth. This is why being proactive with a root canals are so important in the early stages.
A full mouth reconstruction may be necessary if multiple implants and other procedures for teeth are needed. A full mouth reconstruction is usually done over multiple appointments and is a serious undertaking to consider if you feel that you may need one. This can include a number of different procedures in order to get your mouth looking spectacular. It is important to again be proactive when it comes to your teeth. Many individuals wait until the affects are devastating and they are in constant pain before seeking help. It is important to take care of your teeth just as you would any other part of your body. However, if your teeth need a full rehabilitation we have the skills and knowledge on how to do that. We are the best in Columbia SC!

The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the hinge joint that connects the lower jaw to the temporal bone of the skull, which is in front of the ear on each side of your head. The joints are flexible, allowing the jaw to move smoothly up and down and side to side and enabling you to talk, chew, and yawn. Muscles attached to and surrounding the jaw joint control the position and movement of the jaw. Injury to the jaw, temporomandibular joint, or muscles of the head and neck can cause temporomandibular disorder (TMD). Other possible causes include:
- Grinding or clenching the teeth
- Dislocation of the soft cushion or disc between the ball and socket
- Presence of osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis in the TMJ
- Stress, which can cause a person to tighten facial and jaw muscles or clench the teeth
If you are experiencing pain or suffering from any of these symptoms, you may have TMD. Please contact us for a consultation and we can help find a plan that is right for you.
At Carolina Aesthetic and Restorative Dentistry we are always on the cutting edge of technology. We are pleased to offer a new and revolutionary way to detect and find cavities. These new ways are changing the way we find cavities and assess damage of the tooth. This allows us to create a plan around the important data that we receive. As technology continues to develop and be created we continue to grow and learn with it. Many Dentists are not willing to grow with the technology because they dont want to spend the time and effort to learn new systems and technology. We are the exact opposite as we see the value in new and creative solutions to better help our patients.
Here are just a few of the Technology Services:
- High Magnifications Loupes
- IntraOral Camera
- Digital X-rays
Are you looking for a straight and perfect smile? Implants may be the best way to create that beautiful smile. They create beautiful strong teeth down to the root. A dental implant is a man-made replacement for the root of a missing tooth. Modern dental implants look very similar to actual teeth and provide greater functionality than dentures or bridges alone. They also provide the strong supportive structure that natural roots provide, which makes bridges and crowns more effective.
