Patients in the 29692 area seek a respected dentist to restore health and beauty to their smiles
There are numerous reasons it may be time to visit the dentist. Whether it is a restorative procedure or a cosmetic enhancement, patients in the 29692 area seek Dr. Christopher T. Griffin for dental care at our Greenwood office. The respected dentist can enhance the health and beauty of the smile with various tooth restorations. Patients visit Dr. Griffin and our talented team for:
- Covering tooth imperfections – We can place wafer thin shells of porcelain over chipped, cracked, heavily discolored, fractured, gapped, or misaligned teeth. Veneers can restore beauty to the smile by covering gaps between teeth as well as providing the appearance of straighter teeth.
- Strengthening and protecting teeth – We use dental crowns to protect teeth after root canals and strengthen weak and worn down teeth. Crowns are used on severely decayed and damaged teeth. The restorations can hold together parts of teeth as well as secure dental bridges. We use porcelain for crowns, which is a strong, durable, stain resistant material that blends nicely with the smile. We also provide inlays and onlays, which we use to fill teeth after removing decay.
- Restoring missing teeth – Tooth loss can make it difficult to speak, bite, and chew properly. Thankfully, there are several treatments available for tooth loss including dental bridges, dentures, and dental implants. Dental bridges fill space left by teeth. Dentures can restore partial to complete tooth loss. We customize the appliances to fit precisely and restore natural beauty to the smile. Dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone, serving as tooth roots to be completed with crowns or dentures.
Tooth loss and damage can be embarrassing and cause patients to shy away from smiling. Regardless of the restoration, patients generally feel more confident when they smile after a procedure. Therefore, restoring health and beauty to the smile can give them the self-esteem boost they need to go after the jobs they always wanted or impress others on dates.
