Learn more about what your Columbia cosmetic dentist has to offer.
One of the fastest and most effective ways to enhance your smile is to whiten your teeth. At The Art of Dentistry, we offer two options for whitening that we hope will meet your needs. Our ZOOM! in-office whitening system delivers amazing results in one short appointment with us. This is the perfect option for patients who are busy and need immediate results.
Our take-home whitening system works well for folks who want to whiten at home at their leisure. We’ll create custom fitting trays that will not only give you great results, they’ll also protect your teeth from excess whitening gel with a comfortable snug fit. We recommend you whiten everyday for the first two weeks and then you’ll be able to update anytime you like after that.
Orthodontics and Invisible Braces
Patients who live with crooked teeth understand that a misaligned smile affects your confidence, but did you know that it also affects your oral health? Crooked teeth are harder to keep clean, putting you at an increased risk for issues such as periodontal (gum) disease and tooth decay. A misaligned bite puts you at risk for TMJ issues or fractures to your teeth.
Dr. Fann offers both traditional orthodontics, which can align your smile and bite with braces and wires, or invisible braces, which utilize clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth. Dr. Fann will tell you which system will be best for your needs after an initial consultation. We’ll take photos, x-rays, and models of your teeth so Dr. Fann can create an individualized plan based on your specific needs.
Do you admire those Hollywood smiles? Did you know that many of them are enhanced with porcelain veneers? Veneers are a thin layer of porcelain designed to fit over your natural tooth structure. They’re very versatile and can repair a number of issues such as:
- Chips and fractures
- Misaligned teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Gaps or spacing between teeth
Dr. Fann combines both his skill and artistry to create the smile you’ve always dreamed of with porcelain veneers.
