4 Ways Dentists Can Restore Your Smile

Are you unhappy with your smile? Have you been wanting to bring your teeth back to their former glory? Restoring your smile isn’t as hard as it may seem, especially with all the options available today. With veneers, teeth whitening, crowns, and orthodontics, there’s no shortage of options to help bring back a smile you’ll love.


Porcelain veneers are customized specifically to fit your teeth. They can mask the look of broken, discolored, uneven teeth, and can even fill gaps between them. The porcelain material is durable and stain-resistant and is fitted to cover the front of each tooth. Receiving this smile makeover could help improve your confidence by leaps and bounds. Even celebrities choose this option to improve their smiles.

Teeth Whitening

Are you hiding your smile because of yellow teeth? According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, you’re among the 96% of adults who believe an attractive smile will improve your appearance. Instead of wasting hundreds of dollars on whitening products recommended by the latest Instagram influencer, look into options from certified dentists. 

A teeth whitening kit from Carolina Family Dentistry is easy to use from the comfort of your home. For best results, brush and floss prior to application. These kits can sometimes cause sensitivity but gradual use, with touch-ups every few months, will produce longer-lasting results. Dentist-recommended products like this will produce more dramatic results, leaving you with a dazzling white smile that you’ll be sure to show off. 


A dental crown covers the entire visible section of a tooth that shows above the gum line. Your dentist may suggest a crown for a variety of reasons, including a cavity too large for a regular filling, a cracked or weakened tooth, a root canal, or even for teeth changing in color or shape. A crown will return your tooth to normal functionality.

On your first visit, your dentist will remove enamel to make room. They will take impressions of your teeth to send to a lab for the crown to be custom fit. Meanwhile, you’ll receive a temporary crown. Then, at your follow-up visit, the dentist will replace the temporary crown with the lab-created custom one. After it’s cemented permanently, you can go about your life as usual.


Are you embarrassed by crooked, gapped, or overlapping teeth? Orthodontics could be the answer. With clear brackets and wires the same color as your teeth, your smile is just a few months away from looking its best thanks to the Six Month Smiles Cosmetics Braces System offered at Carolina Family Dentistry. This system has helped so many achieve the attractive smile of their dreams. Straightening teeth can impact the overall health of your mouth, reducing plaque, tooth decay, cavities, and even jaw pain.

Here at Carolina Family Dentistry, we not only care about the health of your teeth but also how you feel about your smile as well. With these restorative dentistry options, you’ll be proud to show off those straight pearly whites in your next selfie.
