It sounds crazy, but I enjoy going to the dentist when it’s Columbia Smiles! I feel like family because the staff tries hard to make you feel like that! Dr. “Nick” is not only a ‘dental artist’ but a good friend; we catch up while he, and his consummately professional staff, work their magic in my mouth! I would go nowhere else, and have not, for a couple of decades! Columbia Smiles is the jam!

Real Veneer Results Crafted by Our Cosmetic Dentist

We offer veneers, or very thin porcelain shells placed over your natural teeth. They're a common — and beautiful — choice for our smile makeover patients.

Our Featured Smile Makeover Procedures

Invisalign Aligners

Clear aligners from Invisalign® safely move your teeth without the typical tradeoffs of braces. Our dentist commonly pairs this treatment with veneers — and, in select cases, can potentially offer a discount for patients who opt for both procedures.

Dental Bonding

If you have concerns like chips, discoloration, or tooth size, dental bonding can provide a simple fix. With this treatment, our cosmetic dentist will place composite resin over your teeth and cure it until it hardens.

​Gum Contouring

Gum contouring offers plenty of possibilities, like adjusting a gummy smile or even improving your overall oral health. It's conducted with a safe dental laser that reshapes your gum line.

Teeth Whitening

Columbia, SC, patients love that we offer in-office and at-home teeth whitening. Want more comprehensive results than whitening alone? Veneers offer substantially brighter and more uniform smiles that last.
