Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Options

Dental technology has come a long way over the years, giving you a natural-looking and tooth-colored dental restoration that lasts for many years. Plus, we’ve found more conservative ways to give you the smile you want without having to go through invasive or time-consuming procedures. Here are some of the most often-requested cosmetic dentistry services in Shelby Township:

Dental bonding: Small chips and discolorations may not seem immediately noticeable to others, but it is to you, and that’s all that matters. Fortunately, tooth-colored resin can be applied to these problems areas and hardened permanently to give you a more even and attractive smile. Better yet? This procedure doesn’t require anesthesia and is completely painless.

Teeth whitening: Ready to say goodbye to external dental stains and discolorations before a special occasion? Or maybe you aren’t having a big event coming up but you just want to give your smile a more radiant glow. Whatever the case, your Shelby Township cosmetic dentist can get your smile up to eight shades whiter in just one whitening session.

Veneers: Need to hide more obvious cracks, chips and discolorations, as well as gaps between teeth and crowding that dental bonding just can’t cover? No problem! Dental veneers, thin porcelain shells, can be bonded to the front of your teeth to give you a straighter, whiter and healthier looking smile. The only factor to really keep in mind is that some tooth enamel must be removed prior to application so be sure you are ready to have veneers for the rest of your life.

Implants: Need to replace one or more missing teeth and looking for a lifelong restoration? Only implants are designed to act just like tooth roots and can last the rest of your life (with the proper care, of course!). Getting implants will require surgery, so we will need to make sure that your smile is healthy enough for this restoration. While implants can take several months to get, it’s well worth the time and money when you have a new tooth that lasts forever.
