Most people have at least one thing they would like to change about their smile, whether it's whiter teeth or fixing other common cosmetic dental proceduresimperfections like chips, cracks, spaces and uneven or crooked teeth. Dr. Steven Wainess, in St. Clair Shores, MI, offers a range of restorative and cosmetic dentistry options designed to improve your oral health and how your teeth look.

Cosmetic Dentistry in St. Clair Shores, MI

Some of the most common dental problems are tooth decay, and cosmetic issues like stains and discolorations. The first step in ensuring that your teeth and gums remain healthy and looking their best is to practice good oral hygiene and prevention, including brushing and flossing on a daily basis and going to the dentist every six months to a year for a check up and professional cleaning.

Professional Teeth Whitening

But even with the best efforts, your teeth are still at risk for staining from everyday food and drinks and the natural aging process, which causes the teeth's protective enamel layer to become thinner and erode over time. Professional teeth whitening treatments eliminate stains and significantly brighten your teeth by several shades for a camera worthy smile.

Dental Veneers

Veneers can fix a variety of cosmetic problems by changing the size, shape, and color of a tooth. They are affordable and durable, and the average veneer can last up to ten years, and often longer.

Root Canal Therapy

In reality, root canals do not live up to their terrifying reputation. Although they are associated with pain, the procedure you will experience is actually very similar to a dental filling. Root canals are performed to clear away damaged nerve tissue inside the tooth to alleviate pain and clear infections, which can lead to permanent nerve damage and even tooth loss if left untreated.
