Have you decided that 2017 is the year you’ll reach your goals? Did you know that your smile could help you do this? This is because a beautiful smile gives you confidence, and confidence helps you achieve great things! Cosmetic dentistry offers many options for improving your teeth, and Dr. Philip Batson, your dentist in Columbia can help brighten your smile for the New Year! Here are some of the cosmetic options we have for you.


Patients who live with crooked teeth understand that it takes a toll on your confidence, and it’s always on your mind. You may feel self-conscious about talking to the new client, or smiling for your company head shot. Since the idea of wearing braces to straighten their teeth is unappealing to most adults, we’d like to tell you about Invisalign.

Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners instead of bracket and wires to straighten your teeth. Aligners can be removed for brushing and eating, but they do need to be worn at least 20-22 hours per day in order to achieve your desired results. This means, however, that there are no restrictions on your diet or changes to your home care needed during your treatment. Invisalign in Columbia is ideal for our busy adult patients who want to straighten their teeth with discretion.

Porcelain Veneers

A dental veneer is a thin layer of porcelain that is designed to fit over your tooth structure. It’s bonded directly to your tooth, which makes it ideal for repairing a number of dental issues such as:

  • Small chips and fractures
  • Excessive wear
  • Misshapen teeth and size discrepancies
  • Gaps and spacing
  • Discoloration and stains
  • Misaligned teeth

Veneers can be customized to match your existing teeth and repair one or two teeth. They’re best utilized however, to enhance an entire smile. They’re stain resistant, which means they won’t discolor at the rate of a natural tooth, and you won’t have to worry about whitening. Dr. Batson, your cosmetic dentist in Columbia, uses his skill and artistry to create amazing smiles with porcelain veneers.
