Do you ever look in the mirror and wish you could change the appearance of your teeth? You have most likely heard of or experienced some level of cosmetic dentistry, but you may not know about all the options you have to improve your smile and confidence. When a patient comes to our cosmetic dentist in Mount Pleasant, SC, for a smile makeover, he or she may not realize how the process works. We hope to explain the different options so you can decide what improvements you would like to try.


Where to Begin?

We want you to have the smile that is right for you, so we consider every patient’s appearance on a case-by-case basis. You may want a total transformation, but you may also want your teeth to look natural and complement your features. We consider several aspects at an initial consultation, which may include:

  • Skin tone
  • Natural color of teeth
  • Shape of face
  • Condition of gums

We will also account for things such as old silver amalgam fillings, missing, chipped, or cracked teeth, misalignment, tooth length and shape, lip fullness, and curve of smile.


So Many Options!

The best part of cosmetic dentistry is that the procedures are elective, meaning you may choose what type of treatment you would like. You may decide to have one or two changes or go for a total smile makeover. Some of the options are:

  • Composite (tooth-colored) fillings
  • Tooth whitening
  • Orthodontia or Invisalign®
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Crowns

Any of these treatment options may improve the appearance of your teeth while boosting your self-esteem. By talking to Dr. Kevin Hogan, our cosmetic dentist in Mount Pleasant, SC, you can work together to decide how to tweak your teeth into a smile you will want to share with everyone.
