Resolve to Smile More … With Cosmetic Dentistry

  • January 2, 2018

Everyone has bad days. No one expects to smile all the time.

But when you are having a good day, you should feel free to share your smile. You should feel comfortable letting your pearly whites shine.

And yet, we meet patients almost every day who are more worried about showing their smiles than sharing their happiness. Some have teeth that are yellow or stained. Some have teeth that are broken or chipped. Some have “crooked” smiles.

And some patients have a combination of problems that they want us to solve.

The good news, if you live in or near Columbia, SC, is that you can call us 803-272-4162 or contact us online. At Total Dental Care of South Carolina, you can change your smile.

Dr. Doug Forbes and our team have transformed many smiles for many patients who no longer feel the need to hide their teeth from others.


Put Cosmetic Dentistry To Work For You!

You can spend another year feeling bad about your teeth. You can have countless more conversations hiding behind your hand so other people can see your mouth when you talk. And you can continue to turn down invitations to dine with family and friends, too.

Or you can do something that will help you feel more confident about your smile.

You can schedule a consultation with Dr. Forbes to discuss what our cosmetic services could do for your smile. And when you are finished with your treatment, you can experience greater confidence in social and professional situations.

When you aren’t worried that other people might be judging you based on the condition of your teeth, you may find that you are more comfortable sharing your ideas with them.


So, what could cosmetic dentistry do for you?

One of the most popular treatments that we offer is our professional teeth whitening. As you’ve gotten older, you may be aware that your pearly whites aren’t really as white as you would like them to be.

As great as that coffee tastes in the morning, it’s also adding to the stains on your smile. So are the sweet tea you sip at lunch, the pasta you enjoy for dinner, and the glass of wine you drink in the evening. Desserts, doughnuts, and dumplings all add to your stains, too. And if you use tobacco of any kinds — you are speeding up the staining process.

With professional whitening, we can go below the surface to remove the deep stains that are hurting your smile.

For patients who have crooked smiles or misaligned bites, orthodontic care has been a godsend. And we have three great options at our office.

Fastbraces® used advanced dental engineering to correct even the most severe alignment issues in a fraction of the time of traditional braces.

For patients who want to avoid any kind of braces, ClearCorrect clear aligners offer a discreet way to transform teeth affected by mild or moderate alignment issues. And patients who are strictly interested in making a cosmetic improvement to the appearance of their teeth, we have Six Month Smiles. This system takes a more focused approach to reposition only those teeth that will make the biggest cosmetic improvement to your smile.

But what if your teeth are broken, chipped, cracked, or just worn down after decades of use? Dental veneers could the perfect solution to your problem.

Veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth. Because of this, they can be used to conceal a wide variety of flaws in your smile. You can rebuild your broken teeth, close the gap or gaps between your teeth, and hide crooked, stained teeth.

By getting veneers, you can create the smile of your dreams — the kind of smile you may have seen on the silver screen or in celebrity magazines.


What’s Stopping You From Trying Cosmetic Dentistry?

Many patients hesitate to makes changes to their smiles even though they wish their smiles looked different.

If you haven’t been to the dentist in years, you may be worried that someone will be critical of the condition of your teeth. We won’t. We want to meet you where you are and be your guides on your journey to a better smile.

If you have dental anxiety, you might be worried that a particular procedure may be painful. At Total Dental Care of South Carolina, we offer sedation dentistry so you can absolutely sure that you are pain-free.
