At Waters Family Dentistry in Anderson, SC, we believe in the transformative power of cosmetic dentistry. Your smile is a powerful asset, and cosmetic dentistry can help enhance its appearance, boost your confidence, and improve your overall oral health. Let’s explore the various ways cosmetic dentistry can transform smiles and lives.

Teeth Whitening

Over time, teeth can become stained or discolored due to various factors such as age, diet, and lifestyle habits. Teeth whitening treatments can effectively lighten the shade of your teeth, giving you a brighter, more youthful smile.

Custom Trays for Take-Home Whitening: We offer custom trays for take-home whitening that are made to fit your teeth. These trays, along with prescription-strength bleaching gel, can be used for one to two weeks for 20 to 30 minutes each day, providing dramatic results. You keep the trays for future touch-ups.

Opalescence Go: For a convenient option, try Opalescence Go, which includes pre-made whitening trays and prescription-strength gel. Wear the trays for about twenty minutes per day. This option is cost-effective and provides stronger whitening than over-the-counter products.

Dental Veneers & Bridges

Veneers are very thin porcelain restorations that are bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are most often used on front teeth to correct problems such as misalignment, small fractures, discoloration, or gaps between the teeth. Porcelain veneers can yield an esthetic result that is unmatched by other dental materials. They can be used to restore one tooth or all the visible teeth in your smile.

A bridge is a prosthetic tooth that is connected to one or more crowns on the sides of a missing tooth space. The crowns that hold the bridge must be placed on healthy, sturdy teeth for the restoration to work properly. Dental bridges can be porcelain (ceramic), metal, or a combination of the two. A bridge is permanently cemented to the adjacent teeth and can function well as a strong yet beautiful way to restore your smile.

Dental Implants

Dental implants, made of titanium, are trusted solutions for replacing missing teeth, serving as replacements for tooth roots and supporting bridges, dentures, or a full arch of teeth. The process involves surgically placing the implant into the jawbone, followed by a few months of healing before attaching an abutment and placing a crown or bridge on top. The benefits of dental implants include their natural look and feel, durability, preservation of jawbone structure, restoration of proper chewing and speaking ability, and improvement of overall oral health and self-confidence.

Full and Partial Dentures

Missing teeth can make eating difficult and affect your confidence in smiling. They can also lead to overuse and pressure on remaining teeth. Waters Family Dentistry offers full and partial dentures to restore your smile and address these issues.

Designed to replace all teeth in an arch, full dentures require multiple appointments for a proper fit, look, and feel. Customized tooth size and color ensure a natural appearance. Top dentures are easier to adjust to as they suction against the palate. Lower dentures lack this advantage and can be more challenging to adjust to. Many patients benefit from at least two implants to help secure lower dentures.

A beautiful smile can significantly impact your confidence and self-esteem. By enhancing the appearance of your smile through cosmetic dentistry, you can feel more confident in social and professional settings, leading to a happier, more fulfilling life. At Waters Family Dentistry, we are dedicated to helping our patients achieve healthy, beautiful smiles.
