What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Grandville MI Cosmetic Dentistry

The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to improve the aesthetics of your smile.

In the meantime, here are some of our most popular treatment options available to you. Please take some time to review these options so you can feel more informed and confident during your next appointment.

Teeth Whitening

Our cosmetic dentists offer both in-office and at-home teeth whitening. For fast results, we recommend an in-office whitening treatment. This procedure has the potential to whiten your smile by several shades in one appointment.

For gradual results, we also provide the option of using custom whitening trays in the comfort of your own home. One of the benefits of at-home whitening is that it offers flexibility. You’re able to whiten your teeth according to your schedule and when it’s most convenient for you.

Porcelain Veneers

A veneer is a wafer-thin porcelain shell that we’re able to bond to the front of your tooth. Porcelain veneers can be a great option if you have front teeth with small chips, cracks, gaps, or stains.

The veneers procedure takes two visits to our office. During your first appointment, we’ll remove a thin layer of enamel from the fronts of your teeth to create space for the dental veneers. We’ll then take impressions of your teeth to send to the lab that will be responsible for creating your veneers.

When you return for your second appointment, we’ll place the veneers over your teeth and ensure they are the perfect size, shape, and color to match the rest of your smile.

Cosmetic Bonding

The cosmetic bonding procedure is perfect for those with busy schedules. It only takes one appointment and our dentists are able to drastically improve the appearance of your front teeth so you can smile with confidence. During your appointment, our dentists will mold a dental putty material to your tooth to improve its shape. They’ll then use a special light to harden the putty in place.

Invisalign® Aligners

As the name suggests, Invisalign treatment consists of wearing a series of nearly invisible aligners. These aligners move your teeth little by little until you achieve the perfect smile.

While Invisalign aligners fall under the category of cosmetic dentistry, they’re also a type of orthodontic treatment. As such, Invisalign clear aligners can greatly improve both the health and function of your bite.

You may be a candidate for Invisalign aligners if you have crooked and/or crowded teeth. Invisalign treatment is also great for correcting overbites, underbites, and other issues with jaw alignment.
