Many people think of cosmetic dentistry as a way to get a Hollywood smile. Actually, it is far more useful and important than that. For a person whose smile has been badly damaged by injury, decay, illness or genetics, cosmetic dentistry can provide them with a smile they love to show off.
When a person has been hiding their smile behind a hand for years or refusing to smile or eat in public, it gives us great pleasure to experience their relief right alongside them as they flash their first big smile in years. Cosmetic dentistry can greatly enhance a person’s self-confidence and pride in their appearance. This improvement is a wonderful investment in a person’s
happiness and often contributes to professional success as well.
Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Here are some of the cosmetic dentistry services we have provided to many of our neighbors from Bloomfield Hills, Bloomfield Township, Farmington Hills, Troy, Birmingham and other towns in our area:
This is a fast method of correcting chipped or broken teeth and for concealing stubborn discoloration. It can also correct a poorly shaped tooth by making it longer or filling gaps on either side.
Now, you no longer need to flash silver fillings when you laugh—or worse, fillings that have darkened to almost black over the years. When we repair the damage from a cavity, we will fill the space with clean, tooth-colored composite resin. This resin bonds firmly to your teeth, which older metal fillings did not, meaning more of your tooth substance had to be drilled away to seat that metal. You can now preserve more of your natural teeth.
These thin porcelain shells cover the front and tips of your teeth to improve their shape and color and correct chips. Irregular shapes, varying lengths and moderate misalignment can also be corrected. Veneers can be added to just a few teeth or a whole smile.
Seeing your dentist for teeth whitening is your best choice for an excellent result and prevents you from aggravating any dental problems that should be corrected before treatment. With the Zoom! in-office teeth whitening system, you can see a change of up to eight shades of brightness in just an hour. The Zoom! take-home products help you maintain the improvements or are suitable for the person whose busy schedule makes it hard to get to our office.
Protecting Your Smile After Cosmetic Dentistry
Once you have achieved your bright, beautiful new smile, the right thing to do is implement a good at-home care regimen and maintain the schedule of cleanings and examinations we recommend. No matter what cosmetic treatment plan you receive, good care after it is complete is the best way to continue to enjoy your bright smile.
