Quality Cosmetic Dentistry Right Here in Bluffton, SC
The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to improve the appearance of a patient’s smile. This usually involves the upper front 6-8 teeth and lower front 6-8 teeth. The vast majority of cosmetic cases we do are middle-aged and older patients who are dissatisfied with the darkening color of their teeth as they get older. These patients also may have chipping and wear of their front teeth and discolored fillings and crowns, which gives their smile a less than ideal look. Lowcountry Dental Center can provide you options on the best way to make the smile one can be proud of. Cosmetic cases can involve bleaching of natural teeth, fillings, tooth contouring, porcelain veneers, porcelain crowns, and bridgework. Not every case is the same, and not every patient’s cost will be the same. Whatever your budget is, we will try to devise a plan that can improve your smile and, in the end, improve your quality of life. There is no “specialty” in cosmetic dentistry in Bluffton, SC, or in general. There are, however, dentists who have researched and, in some cases, developed the materials and devised the techniques, which they then teach to other general dentists in the profession. Dr. Hendricks has attended seminars and hands-on courses given by many of these pioneers in cosmetic dentistry, including The Nash Institute for Dental Learning and the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies.
