Cosmetic Dentistry is Natural Beauty

In recent years, the shift in cosmetic dentistry has gone from the ultra-white “Hollywood smile,” to a standard that emphasizes health, function and the beauty of natural looking aesthetics. As a cosmetic dentist in Columbia, SC, Dr. Trinkner seeks to accomplish the patient’s goals through the least invasive way, preserving as much natural tooth structure as possible. For a smile to be attractive, the patient’s dental features must be in harmony with their facial features.

Also, Dr. Trinkner pays close attention to the balance and function of the temporomandibular joints (TMJ). By placing the occlusal (bite) system in harmony, Dr. Trinkner can ensure that cosmetic dental changes will be long lasting and comfortable.

Your cosmetic dental goals should also support your long-term dental health, ensuring that your beautiful new smile is also comfortable and functional.

Smile Makeovers in Columbia

A smile makeover can be as simple as a teeth whitening procedure and as complex as a total mouth reconstruction. It all depends on the unique needs and goals of each patient. Dr. Trinkner has built a reputation on providing the highest standard of dental care in a personalized manner. Using the latest techniques and quality materials, the treatment you receive will be tailored to your smile.

A smile makeover may include any of the following procedures; sometimes a combination of treatment options to meet your needs entirely:

  • Porcelain veneers
  • Invisalign® clear aligners

In many cases, a restorative dental treatment is incorporated into your treatment if there are damaged or missing teeth affecting your smile.
