A Prime Choice for Care in Aiken, SC "The staff and dentists are wonderful."
Great dentist. I've never had a better experience getting a cavity filled before. I literally didn't feel a thing (first time that ever happened) and they got in and out when working on the filling so fast. Also, very nice atmosphere in the office and the staff and dentists are wonderful. Would highly recommend.View on Google

The staff are all amazing, and both Dr Tal and Dr Leah are wonderful! I recommend them to anyone seeking a high quality caring dental practice!View on Google

Our Featured Procedures
Cracked, chipped, and stained teeth can detract from the appearance of your smile, and have a negative effect on your self-esteem. If you are self-conscious about the aesthetics of your teeth, call our Aiken, SC, dental office to learn about your treatment options. Our dentists can discuss a number of cosmetic procedures that will enhance your teeth and have you taking pride in your smile.
Restorative dentistry is designed to repair dental issues and restore the function of your teeth. We have the knowledge and tools to correct damaged, infected, and missing teeth allowing you to eat the foods you love, speak with confidence, and experience relief from dental pain. When you attend your biannual dentist's appointment, we will be able to check for any conditions and take preventative measures to ensure long-lasting oral health.
A missing tooth or teeth can affect your health more than you might think. If left untreated, a gap in your smile can cause bone degeneration and further tooth loss. Dental implants are considered the gold standard in restorative dentistry and the next best thing to real teeth. During the procedure, titanium implants are inserted in the jaw, stimulating the tissue and preventing future bone recession. These implants act as the foundation for a custom-made prosthetic that will look and feel just like your natural teeth.
A tooth that has been compromised due to trauma or decay can be restored with a dental crown. After treating the cause of the damage, our Aiken dentists can repair and protect your tooth by securing a custom dental crown. Crowns can prevent the spread of infection and the need for extraction in the future. Made from high-quality composite materials, we will match your restoration to your natural shade of tooth enamel for a seamless result.
Patients at our Aiken, SC, dental office who are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth may benefit from ultra-thin, custom-made porcelain veneers. Cracked, chipped, or slightly crooked teeth can cause your smile to appear unhealthy and can undermine your self-confidence. Veneers can conceal a wide range of dental imperfections with a long-lasting, highly realistic porcelain shell bonded to the front surface of your tooth.
Sleep apnea occurs when your body does not receive enough oxygen while you sleep. The condition inhibits your ability to rest and will negatively affect your physical health and mental well-being. We can recommend a conservative treatment option to address sleep apnea, like an oral appliance or CPAP machine. If you know or suspect you suffer from sleep apnea, seek help at our Aiken, SC, office as soon as possible to restore your quality of life.

High-Tech Tools Provide Better Outcomes
Cone-Beam CT Scanner
The cone-beam CT scanner has revolutionized the field of restorative and cosmetic dentistry. In the past, the dentist would take messy impressions and 2D X-rays to prepare for your dental procedure. Now, with the cone-beam scanner, we can take panoramic virtual images of your mouth to aid in root canals, dental implants, and other procedures. This CT scanner makes dental work easier and more accurate while lowering your chance of complications.
Computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing software improves the process of prosthodontics by crafting restorations such as crowns and veneers. The technology allows our dentist to take a virtual scan of your teeth to precisely design your restoration in a fast streamlined procedure. With the chairside design program, you can watch as the dentist creates your custom crown or veneer before your very eyes.
