Dr. Kris O'Neill of O'Neill Family Dentistry in Columbia, SC, provides her patients with a variety of cosmetic dentistry treatments to improve your smile. The treatment options are simple and reliable for most people, but here's a closer look as to what some of those services are and what they entail.

Veneers are custom-made porcelain shells. They are tooth-colored designed to cement, or adhere, to the front surface of teeth to improve your smile. Veneers change the color, shape, size, or length of teeth. The prosthetic device is a cosmetic dentistry treatment that may require local anesthesia to alleviate discomfort. Your Columbia cosmetic dentistry office provides veneers to help conceal chips, cracks, minor gaps, and discoloration.

Invisalign is a functional and cosmetic dentistry treatment that straightens teeth discreetly. It's a great option for older teens and young adults who have minor issues, like slightly crooked or gapped teeth. Your dentist makes a sequence of custom-made aligner trays using special software called CAD/CAM. Every two weeks you exchange the tray with the next one in the sequence to continue applying gentle pressure on teeth until teeth move to their corrected position.

Teeth whitening uses bleaching trays to remove stains and discoloration of teeth surfaces. The trays are used at home when your Columbia cosmetic dentist provides at-home kits that you can use at your convenience. 

Other cosmetic dentistry treatments include crowns (caps), fillings, dentures, and bridges.
