Your smile is a key feature and an important part of your personality. Cosmetic dentistry aims to improve and create beautiful, healthy, and aesthetically pleasing smiles using various treatment options. Unlike general dental care, cosmetic dentistry is not only a science but also an art. With cosmetic dental procedures, the dentist enhances your smile while also helping to restore and maintain optimal dental health.
Our Most Popular Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments and Procedures
The most popular types of cosmetic dentistry procedures available at SmileHere Family Dental in Livonia and Ann Arbor, Michigan, include:
Composite Fillings: A composite (white) filling is a type of dental filling that helps restore teeth that are decayed, cracked, fractured, etc. To place the filling, the dentist removes the decayed or affected area of the tooth and then fills the tooth with the composite material.
Porcelain Veneers: Veneers are customized shells made of porcelain. They are used to cover the front side of the teeth to change their shape and color and fix minor smile imperfections. They improve the appearance of imperfect teeth while also strengthening their structure. Veneers are used to fix imperfections like chipped teeth, worn teeth, permanently stained teeth, teeth with gaps, or poorly shaped or slightly crooked teeth.
Inlays and Onlays: Inlays and onlays are indirect restorations that are similar to fillings. The main difference is that inlays and onlays are made in a dental lab and cover a larger portion of the damaged or decayed tooth, restoring its structure.
Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening is a straightforward and effective way to dramatically improve your smile. Through teeth whitening, you can easily get rid of stains or signs of discoloration on your teeth and significantly brighten their color. This cosmetic procedure can be either performed in the dental office for faster results or at home with a special kit and instructions provided by the dentist.
Crowns & Bridges: Bridges fill in the gap left by one or more missing teeth and are supported by the adjacent teeth. They can be fabricated from porcelain, ceramic, gold, alloys, or a combination of these materials.
