Cosmetic Dentistry


A dental crown, also known as a dental cap, is a protective covering that is placed over a damaged or weakened tooth to restore its shape, size, strength and appearance. They are custom made to match the color, size, and shape of your natural teeth, providing a seamless and natural looking result.

The process of receiving a crown is 2 appointments. The first appointment we will prepare the tooth to receive the crown, use a Trios digital scanner to capture how the tooth looks and send it to the dental lab for crown fabrication, and then make a temporary crown that is worn over the tooth to protect it until the final crown arrives 2-3 weeks later. With excellent homecare, the 2nd visit is a breeze placing cementing the permanent crown over the prepared tooth.


Crowns are often associated with root canals, because the procedure will weaken the tooth enough that it needs to be rebuilt. However, crowns can also be used for any type of tooth loss, including chipped teeth or full tooth loss. If you’re looking for restorative dentistry in Irmo, SC, your dentist can tell you more about how your tooth will be either replaced or reshaped.

Crowns and veneers are a great way to change the overall appearance, shape, and shade of your smile. With crowns covering the tooth fully like a hat and veneers covering the tooth partially like a fingernail, the dentist will diagnose and determine what is appropriate for each tooth.


Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells designed to cover the front surface of your teeth. They’re made from tooth-colored materials like porcelain or composite resin, providing a natural appearance that blends seamlessly with the rest of your smile.

Veneers are a versatile cosmetic solution that can correct a variety of dental issues, from discolored or stained teeth to gaps, chips, and minor misalignments. They can even be used to reshape teeth, providing a more harmonious, balanced smile.

The process begins with a consultation, where we discuss your goals and design your custom veneers. A small amount of enamel is then gently removed from the front of your teeth to make room for the veneers. Once the veneers are bonded to your teeth, they become incredibly durable and resistant to staining.

Whether you want to enhance the brightness, shape, size, or alignment of your teeth, dental veneers can provide a dramatic transformation, improving your self-esteem and your oral health.

The cosmetic dentistry treatments described here are all non-invasive, and require minimal–if any!–recovery times. This means you can return to your normal, everyday activities like work, family time and social engagements right away.
