Can you help me overcome my dental fear?
Yes! Carolina Bright Smiles puts the “bright” in smiles in more ways than one. Not only will we keep your smile shiny and healthy, but you’ll also be comforted by all the welcoming members of our team. We’re happy to answer all your questions, move at your pace, and make sure you’re cozy with items from our comfort menu. We also offer oral sedation, inhaled sedation, IV sedation, and Anutra Medical’s pain-free anesthesia; our shots don’t sting! If you have dental anxiety, we’re here to make you feel at ease.
Can I get dental implants?
Yes, you most likely can! We place most kinds of implants. We restore dental implants with crowns, bridges, or dentures, which can replace anywhere from one tooth to all your teeth. Even if you’ve been told your jaw is too thin for implants, we can perform a bone graft to strengthen your jaw or use mini dental implants instead. Mini implants are especially useful for stabilizing dentures.
What is HealthyStart™ and how can it help my child?
HealthyStart is a preventive approach to orthodontic care that can help address problems in the earliest stages of your child’s dental development. We use a custom oral appliance, which your child wears while sleeping or just a few hours a day, to guide how their mouths develop. It can help lessen bite problems, prevent crooked teeth, and promote healthy jaw development. It also helps open your child’s airways, which can lessen the risk of sleep-disordered breathing.
Which cosmetic dental treatments are available to improve my smile?
We offer a wide range of cosmetic dental treatments, including porcelain dental veneers, professional teeth whitening, teeth contouring, and gum reshaping. Our orthodontics options include Invisalign and Six Month Smiles. You can combine treatments for a complete smile makeover. We’ll even be able to provide a digital preview and/or a wax mockup to show you what your new smile will look like.
How often do I need dental cleanings?
For the best results, we advise most patients to visit us every six months for professional dental cleanings. These visits, combined with dental exams and good home oral hygiene, are the best way to prevent problems like cavities and gum disease. If you smoke or have diabetes or other factors that put you at higher risk for gum disease, we may recommend more frequent appointments for routine dental care.
