DR. STEVEN GHIM
Dental veneers, sometimes called dental laminates, are very thin shells of porcelain or resin that a cosmetic dentist bonds to the front of your teeth to improve your smile. You can think of them as being a lot like the press-on nails that people like to use to give their hands a different, more fashionable look but for your teeth and customized to your exact, desired look!
A smile makeover, sometimes called a smile rejuvenation, can include just a single cosmetic procedure. But typically, it involves a wide combination of different procedures, the most common of which are veneers, crowns, and whitening. These procedures can correct issues such as crooked or gapped teeth, gummy or uneven smiles, and enamel discoloration.
People often think that orthodontics is only for children. However, adults that receive orthodontics get spectacular results! About a quarter of all orthodontic patients are adults, according to the American Association of Orthodontics. The main requirement is simply that your teeth and gums are healthy.
Receiving cosmetic dentistry procedures can help you feel more confident and make a great impression through a more vibrant, beautiful smile. This can be life-changing, especially if your dental concerns stem from trauma, discolored or broken teeth, or failed dentistry.
A comprehensive dental exam is essential for good dental care and accurate diagnosis; Dr. Ghim will discuss your dental and medical history, concerns, expectations, and goals. During this exam Dr. Ghim will also screen for TMJ disorder, oral cancer and gum disease.
With over 75% of adults affected by gum disease in their lifetime, Dr. Ghim takes periodontal care very seriously. Bacteria and plaque buildup attack the gums causing periodontal disease. Common symptoms include tender swollen gums, bleeding, loose teeth and receding of gum line.
Who doesn’t love that freshly polished feel of your teeth after a cleaning? Dr. Ghim’s highly-trained, compassionate registered dental hygienists do more than just polish your teeth. They remove plaque, tartar buildup, probe your gums for signs of periodontal disease.
Damaged teeth might seem hopeless, but there’s often a solid foundation underneath. A crown, or cap, can bring a compromised tooth back to full function. Dr. Ghim utilizes modern porcelain materials; Dr. Ghim has vast experience in color matching porcelain to natural teeth.
For those that have sore jaw muscles in the morning and grinding in the evening, we fabricate custom guards so that patient does not wear away the enamel. A custom-fitted plastic guard fits over the upper or lower teeth. Constant grinding has a detrimental effect on enamel and tooth wear.
Dr. Ghim provides interactive digital cosmetic consults. His experience in cosmetic dentistry has made him one of the top cosmetic dentists in the Ballantyne area. Patients can visualize their current state and have the power to decide what’s important for them in the final result.
Our Digital Smile Design, Treatment Planning and Porcelain color matching studio is the most advanced in dentistry. Our technology enables patients to have more input into their esthetic work. No other office can provide you with a more interactive treatment planning experience.
