New Year, New Smile: Consider a 2024 Cosmetic Dentistry Makeover
The new year is almost here. Have you given any thought to your resolutions? If you’ve been unhappy with the appearance of your smile, we’d suggest moving these smile enhancements to the top of your list. At Dearborn Family Dentistry in Dearborn, MI, we have all the resources you need to make a smile makeover in 2024 a reality. Read on to learn more about your restorative and cosmetic dentistry options.
Dental Implants for Missing Teeth
Do you have gaps in your smile? Do your traditional dentures slip or make noise at the worst possible moments? The solution could be dental implants.
Implants are tiny metal posts that are embedded into the jawbone. Unlike traditional bridges and dentures, implant-supported restorations replace the portion of a missing tooth that lies below the gumline.
This not only provides superior stability (imagine a denture that’s virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth!) but also protects the health of your jaw. Without this stimulation, missing teeth will cause the bone to deteriorate–threatening the integrity of nearby teeth.
Invisalign for Crooked Teeth
If you’re unhappy with gapped, crooked, or rotated teeth, or have an underbite or overbite, modern orthodontics offer a removable, discreet treatment. If you’d been picturing braces, forget everything you thought you knew about how dentists achieve straighter smiles for their patients.
We offer Invisalign® clear aligners at our Dearborn office. These custom trays are customized for a comfortable fit. And as long as you wear the successive series of trays for 20-22 hours a day, many of our patients can expect to achieve effects that are comparable to braces.
Teeth Whitening for Dull Smiles
If you’re noticing your teeth looked a little lackluster in family photos over the holidays, teeth whitening is a simple and affordable treatment with stunning results.
We offer in-office whitening which can lighten stained enamel several shades in less than one hour. If you prefer a less-concentrated bleaching solution for sensitive teeth, or you’d just rather whiten your teeth on your own schedule, we also offer take-home kits.
It’s important to understand that we can only lighten discoloration that affects the outer portion of the teeth. If your teeth are internally discolored, we offer a popular alternative: porcelain veneers.
Veneers for a Range of Concerns
Custom porcelain veneers are great for addressing far more than just discoloration. If you’ve been bothered by worn or chipped teeth, sizing or spacing issues, or a lack of symmetry in your smile, these are all concerns that veneers can conceal. These thin porcelain shells can be cared for just like natural teeth. Plus, they’re stain-resistant and maintain a bright, white appearance for years with the proper care.
Custom Smile Makeovers
If you’ve found yourself thinking you could benefit from more than one of these procedures, you’re not alone. Many of our Dearborn patients choose to combine cosmetic dentistry treatments into a comprehensive smile makeover. The possibilities are endless. We’ll start with your concerns, educate you on your treatment options, and take it from there.
