Porcelain veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available today, and they’re also one of the most comprehensive. With just one treatment, we can fix stained, cracked, chipped, broken, decayed, spaced, and even crooked teeth all at the same time. You can get them in as little as two visits, and they’re one of the easiest ways to completely transform your smile
If you have a cavity or slightly damaged tooth, we can likely repair it with a small filling. However, rather than using a metal filling that will always stick out in your smile, we’ll utilize a nearly invisible tooth-colored filling. Tooth-colored fillings are made of a composite resin that can be specially shaded to match the color of your teeth so you’ll never have to compromise your appearance to get the care that you need.
All-Porcelain Dental Crowns
With our all-porcelain dental crowns, we can repair even the most broken or decayed teeth with relative ease. They can also be used to improve the appearance of misshapen or slightly gapped teeth. A crown itself is a tooth-shaped restoration that simply fits over the top of a damaged tooth, and thanks to dental porcelain’s strength and natural appearance, it’ll make your tooth look like nothing ever happened to it.
Onlays & Inlays
These restorations serve as a middle ground between fillings and crowns. They will allow Dr. Gregory to repair your damaged tooth while preserving as much of its natural strength and structure as possible, which will help it be much more durable over time. An inlay is used to support a damaged tooth from within, while an onlay is used to replace the cusp (or outer edge) of a tooth. Both are made of dental porcelain so they will be practically invisible in your smile.
Most people would love to have a brighter, whiter smile, and thanks to our professional whitening treatments, you can get reliable, long lasting results quicker than ever. You can choose to whiten your smile in the comfort of your own home with one of our customized kits (which are much stronger than anything you can buy at the store), or you can get complete results in less than an hour with our in-office Zoom! Whitening treatment.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
If you believe that your smile is too forgone to be saved, we want you to know that’s actually not true. No matter what condition your teeth may be in now, Dr. Gregory can use a full mouth reconstruction to give you and your smile a new lease on life. Using the best of what cosmetic and restorative dentistry have to offer, she can design a customized plan that will give you a smile you never thought you could have again.
Invisalign Clear Braces
Straight teeth used to mean a mouth full of metal brackets and wires, but those days are long gone. Today, you have better options. One of the most cosmetic orthodontics solutions is the Invisalign clear braces system. Using a series of clear aligners, patients can achieve a flawlessly aligned smile in about 12 months of treatment without a single bracket or wire in sight. Simply wear each custom crafted Invisalign tray for about two weeks. Then, exchange it for the next set in the series, and watch your crooked teeth transform into a flawless smile. Best of all, you won’t need to worry about changing your diet or oral hygiene routine. Simply remove your aligners for meals and to clean teeth. Then, replace the aligners after to continue your treatment. Cosmetically superior, completely comfortable, and absolutely no hassle. Invisalign clear braces deliver straight, healthy smiles without the drawbacks of other more traditional orthodontic solutions.Learn More About Invisalign

Is cosmetic dentistry right for me?
Before any cosmetic dental procedure is performed, your dentist in Mount Pleasant will first make sure that your oral health is in good standing. That’s because the condition of your teeth and gums is always a priority for us. Additionally, by Dr. Gregory taking this approach, you can expect longer-lasting results.
How long will my procedure take?
Unfortunately, there is no definite answer to this question. This can partly be attributed to the fact that every aspect of the cosmetic dental services we offer is completely customized. Therefore, the length of your treatment will depend on such factors as the severity of your condition, whether you’ll need any restorative care beforehand and the number of cosmetic procedures you want performed.
