You can count on our practice to give you a whole new and fresh look when it comes to your smile. We offer great options in cosmetic dentistry to improve the appearance of your smile and provide the oral health you truly deserve.
Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving one’s appearance. Your smile is often the first thing that people see. Why live with stained, broken, or chipped teeth when you can feel confident with a healthy, attractive smile?
We offer Surfside Beach, SC cosmetic dentistry procedures such as teeth whitening, veneers, crowns, bridges, white porcelain fillings, smile makeovers, and many other services. Any or all of these methods will give incredible results to your teeth.
Crowns- Made in the U.S.A
You can trust that all our crowns are made in the USA and of the finest quality. Sometimes, patients have a tooth that doesn’t need to be completely removed even though it is suffering from decay. In a situation such as this, we can save your natural tooth by removing the decay, then immediately applying a crown to strengthen your tooth. We simply file and shape your tooth after decay treatment. Then, we apply and bond the new crown directly over your old tooth. The new crown will strengthen and protect your natural tooth from future decay.
All of our bridges are U.S.A-made and long-lasting. A bridge is composed of a pair of crowns that surround and attach to one or more prosthetic teeth. The crowns are placed over the teeth that neighbor a missing tooth. This way, the prosthetic tooth fits neatly into the empty spot left by a missing tooth. Bridges can help improve your bite and give you a natural-looking tooth replacement option.
We offer a variety of teeth whitening options available to patients today. Teeth whitening is one of the fastest and most affordable ways to give your smile a quick refresh and to make it look bright and healthy again.
Over time, our teeth become stained from food, drinks, smoking, different kinds of medicine, and aging. Grinding or past injuries can create tiny cracks in the teeth which look unsightly and leave you with an overall discolored appearance to your smile.
There are over the counter options for teeth whitening, but the best practice is to consult with our team on what professional whitening procedure will work best for your teeth. Some patients are sensitive to whitening procedures and working with a dentist can resolve this problem and the right option can be applied. A variety of systems are available in-office for this procedure. In most cases, a tray process is the most popular and most recommended.
Veneers are a great way to fix minor flaws in your smile. They are an effective treatment that provides instant results. While they are incredibly thin, they are highly durable and long lasting.
Most veneers are made of porcelain. They are made specifically to fit and bond right onto the front of your teeth. The shells provide dramatic results that can last a long time. If you are looking for a dramatically whiter, more beautiful smile, choose our veneer treatment.
White Porcelain Fillings
Gone are the days of metal fillings. You now can obtain natural looking white fillings to fill those cavities! You can even replace your old metal ones with new white fillings for a more natural looking smile. Our white porcelain fillings provide a smoother overall smile and appearance. We perform this treatment for both adults and children.
White fillings can be utilized not only to repair cavities but also to mask any minor flaws found in your teeth including chipped or discolored teeth. These fillings can also act as a replacement for metal fillings that could be deteriorating.
Smile makeovers can include any combination of the procedures mentioned above. Some people have a lot of damage and wear and tear on their teeth and have always wanted a more perfect smile. After a full consultation with Dr. Altman, he will put into place the best procedures for you to get a full smile makeover.
