Your dream smile is waiting, and our dental team can help.

Do you feel embarrassed by your smile? Do you hide your smile in photos or avoid social interactions because of discolored, misshapen, or crooked teeth? If so, our St. Clair Shores, MI, dentist Dr. Steven Wainess can help you get the smile you’ve been dreaming about. Cosmetic dentistry has helped millions of Americans feel more confident in their appearance, and it may be able to help you, too.

What are the types of cosmetic dentistry treatments?

If you’ve been curious about turning to our dentist here in St. Clair Shores, MI, for cosmetic dentistry you may be wondering what types of treatments we offer. Our cosmetic dentistry team can help to completely reshape, brighten, and makeover your smile with one or more of these options,

  • Dental bonding
  • Tooth reshaping
  • Teeth whitening
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Dental implants

What should I know about cosmetic dentistry?

As with any procedure, it’s important to come in with realistic expectations. Write down the issues that bother you about your smile and things you want to change and Dr. Wainess can sit down with you and map out a treatment plan based on your needs. Some people may only require one treatment such as teeth whitening to remove stains and whiten their teeth, but people with more extensive problems may benefit from two or more treatments.

It’s important to write down any questions you may have regarding the treatment or treatments you’re interested in so we can answer your questions during your consultation. Some treatments are completely non-invasive and provide subtle changes while others may require weeks or months of recovery but impart more extensive or long-term results. You must understand what cosmetic dentistry can and can’t offer before you get treatment.

How long do results last?

This will depend on the type of treatment you get and how well you care for your smile. Some options such as teeth whitening may fade after six months or last up to 2 years, while other options such as dental implants can last the rest of your life.

Our St. Clair Shores, MI, family dentist, Dr. Wainess, and his dental team are here to make sure that you get the treatment and care you need for a smile you can’t wait to show off. If you’d like to discuss your cosmetic dentistry options with our team, call us today at (586) 293-1515.
