Pool parties and barbecues don’t have to be the only items on your schedule this summer. What if we told you that the warmer months are a great time to start cosmetic dental treatments? Now’s the time to get a head start on boosting your confidence and obtain the white smile you’ve always wanted. If you want to impress your family and friends at all your upcoming events, here are three of the best cosmetic dentistry treatments in Columbia you can start this summer!

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Chips and cracks in your teeth can really knock your confidence down. Luckily, cosmetic dental bonding is a great solution to quickly conceal imperfections that can cause you to be self-conscious. The treatment allows your dentist to craft the shape of your tooth using a small amount of composite resin. After the tooth is molded, the resin is hardened with a curing light.

The procedure is fast, effective, and can be done in one simple appointment. If properly cared for, your natural-looking results can last for around 10 years. You’ll be back to enjoying events with confidence in no time!


If you want a bright, Hollywood smile, veneers may be the key. They are one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures amongst celebrities and the general public alike. They work by securing a thin porcelain shell on the front-facing surface of the tooth. This covers up imperfections like discoloration, cracks, and gaps. Whether you need just a few or a whole set, veneers are designed to be more stain-resistant than cosmetic dental bonding.

Even better, your veneers can last up to 15-20 years if you take proper care of them. It’s a great procedure to start in the summer because it typically only requires two dentist visits.

Teeth Whitening

Do you have a wedding or special event coming up this summer? Boost the brightness of your smile with professional teeth whitening. While you could go out and purchase a kit yourself, the whitening treatments at your dentist’s office are far more effective. That’s because they contain professional-grade whitening agents and stronger ingredients than anything you can buy in stores or online.

Teeth whitening will remove pesky stains and penetrate deeper into your tooth to target discoloration. All it takes is one appointment, and you can even get a take-home kit from your dentist to complete in your own time if your schedule is packed. 

Stop putting off the bright smile you’ve always wanted. Get started on your journey to whiter teeth this summer and wow your friends and family. Reach out to your dentist to get started!
