Invest in Yourself with a Healthy, Impressive Smile This New Year

Your smile is one of your greatest assets — it’s how you greet the world and make an impression in all avenues of life. Dr. Gregory J. Wych understands this on both a professional and personal level.

The Columbia dentist has a fantastic smile, but that wasn’t always the case. During college, he was hit in the mouth with a racquetball racquet and lost his upper front teeth.

“I had a lot of bonding and tooth-colored filling and the dental work wasn’t very good,” Wych says. “I used to break teeth off when I was eating and the bonding would wear and discolor. It was really embarrassing.”

Finally, when Wych was building his own cosmetic/adult dentistry practice, he turned to the best cosmetic dentist he knew to repair his front teeth.

“They lasted 21 years without a hitch because he had advanced training and experience,” Wych said.

At the time, says Wych, he was just starting his own practice but he decided to invest in himself with a smile he could be proud of.

“I didn’t have a lot of extra income but it was the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. I know what it’s done for me and my business,” the dentist says. “I became much more confident when presenting at seminars and in my work.”

If you are embarrassed to smile, hide your teeth when you speak, cover your mouth when you laugh or avoid certain food and drink because they draw attention to your teeth, then you also know how important a great smile is.

Cosmetic dentistry completed by a highly trained dentist can fix your smile and restore confidence you may have lost. Wych’s spa-dentistry office specializes in adult and cosmetic dentistry, serving patients with concerns ranging from discolored teeth, to alignment and spacing issues, old dentistry work that’s breaking down, excessive wear and trauma to the teeth.

His office offers sedation dentistry, flexible appointments and a variety of ways to finance dental work.

“Time is always an issue and we can do the work a lot faster than most because we have so much experience,” Wych says. “I’ve done a lot of smiles in Columbia.”

Wych has worked in dentistry for 34 years and is the author of three books and numerous articles on dentistry. He teaches at The Scottsdale Center for Advanced Dental Studies and dedicates hours every year to courses on cosmetic dentistry and oral conscious sedation. He presents free seminars in his office on dental implants and cosmetic dentistry.

Wych is the only dentist in Irmo to employ Waterlase laser equipment, the most advanced dental laser treatment of its kind.
