Do I need cosmetic dentistry?

Low self-esteem due to the appearance of the teeth can receive a boost with a simple cosmetic procedure such as teeth whitening. In some cases, a broken or damaged tooth may benefit from a cosmetic treatment, such as a veneer, which can help stabilize the compromised tooth.

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures Available in St. Clair Shores, MI

  • Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening is a surefire way to improve your smile. By undergoing just one hour-long procedure, your teeth can lift in color up to ten shades — a fact that mail-order and over-the-counter at-home kits cannot boast.
  • Dental Implants: Dental implants replace your smile’s missing teeth to give your mouth’s bite increased functionality and help you boost your confidence and self-esteem.
  • Dental Bonding: Dental bonding is a procedure which uses composite resin to reshape a chipped or misshapen tooth. This fast procedure goes hand-in-hand with cosmetic contouring, which is used to finalize and perfect the tooth’s new shape.
  • Crowns and Bridges: A dental crown fits over a tooth to change its appearance or protect it. A dental bridge replaces a missing tooth to close the gap in your smile.
