Dental health has an effect on your confidence in several ways. This is why it’s important to have good teeth and healthy gums. At Ammons Dental by Design in Camden, South Carolina, we can help you achieve that picture-perfect smile.
We offer a variety of cosmetic dental treatments, including dental implants, dental veneers, orthodontics, CEREC same-day crowns, and so much more. If you are in or near Camden, South Carolina, schedule your consultation today. We would love to meet with you and evaluate your needs so that we can create a suitable treatment plan.
There are several reasons why you might want to consider our Camden clinic for your cosmetic dentistry and dental implant needs:
Cosmetic dentistry is more affordable than you might think
Many people avoid cosmetic dentistry because they are afraid it will be expensive- but these procedures are a lot more affordable than you might think- especially when your treatment offers restorative benefits. For example, may times, cosmetic dental procedures improve the structure of your teeth, so they may be covered by insurance. Plus, due to technological advancements, cosmetic dental procedures have become more efficient- which also helps with making them more affordable.
Cosmetic dentistry is not as painful as you might think
Another reason many people avoid going to a cosmetic dentist is because they have anxiety. At Ammons Dental by Design in Camden, South Carolina, we understand that- so we want you to know that many cosmetic dental procedures are minimally invasive and therefore, almost pain-free. For example, professional teeth whitening is easy and can remove years’ worth of stains with just one pain-free treatment. On the other hand, when it comes to the more intensive procedures, the latest technological improvements and anesthesia make procedures safer and easier. We can offer you blankets to keep you warm and cozy, headphones so you can listen to music or your favorite podcast while we work, and if that’s not enough- we do offer sedation dentistry, just make sure you have someone that can drive you home.
Cosmetic dentistry gives you a natural smile
Many patients worry that their tooth restorations will look fake- but we customize your veneers, crowns, and dental implants to match your personal needs and preferences. We do everything we can to make sure you are happy with the results. We take care to ensure that your new teeth blend with your natural teeth. We also do whatever we can to maintain as much of the natural structure of your teeth.
Cosmetic dentistry improves your oral health
When the structure of your teeth is improved, several oral health issues are also addressed. For example, if you have a broken tooth, repairing it with cosmetic dentistry will prevent issues with tooth decay down the road. Dental implants and bridges can improve your chewing and speech.
Cosmetic dentistry improves your quality of life
When you visit our Camden, South Carolina clinic for your cosmetic dentistry and implant needs, allowing us to fix chips and gaps, replace damaged or decayed teeth, and transform your discolored teeth, you will get your confidence back. You’ll want to smile more, showing off your pearly whites. Also, when the structural integrity of your teeth is restored, your oral health is greatly improved- which improves your overall health as well.
Cosmetic dentistry not only makes you look great, but it makes you feel great too!
