You have choices when it comes to how to improve your smile. Decide which dental treatment is right for you.
You’ve been doing a lot of research online about cosmetic dentistry but all the information just seems to get jumbled up in your brain somewhere. It can feel rather daunting trying to figure out what treatment or treatments could finally give you the smile you want. This is about the time you should call our Lansing, MI cosmetic dentist, Dr. Holly Scott-Hetchler, who is an expert in giving you the smile you’ve always wanted.
Not all cosmetic dentistry has to be invasive or time-consuming. In fact, our Lansing dentist can cover over discolorations, chips, cracks, gaps between teeth and other minor issues with the same tooth-colored resin used to fill a cavity. However, we don’t need to use anesthesia or drills for this non-invasive treatment. We just apply the moldable resin over the flawed areas, shape it and then harden it with a laser. It’s that simple!
Tooth reshaping and contouring often goes hand-in-hand with bonding. By filing off some enamel from your teeth we can buff out small chips, cracks or uneven areas of your smile. Contouring can be a great option for someone who hates their extremely pointy canines and wants to even them out. Contouring won’t be able to tackle more extreme issues, but can be a great and painless way to improve the shape of a tooth or several teeth.
Are you tired of yellowing, stained teeth? Then opt for the faster way to whiten your smile. In one hour or less we can get your smile up to 10 shades whiter in just one session. Teeth that are stained due to smoking, foods, drinks or aging respond best to this amazing whitening system.
If the imperfections you are dealing with can’t be addressed with bonding or contouring then veneers will be your lifesaving cosmetic treatment. These wafer-thin porcelain shells are bonded to the front of your teeth to improve the shape, color and size of your smile. This is a great option for those who are dealing with uneven and misshapen teeth, as well as those who are dealing with minor crookedness but don’t want to get braces.
Cosmetic dentistry can truly be an amazing gift to your smile. Imagine a smile that’s straighter, whiter and more even. If this is something you’ve been dreaming of for a long time, then it’s time to call our Lansing, MI dental office to make this dream a reality.
