When we tell our patients that everything we do is Cosmetic Dentistry, what we really mean is that we do everything, cosmetically.
Looking for a Clarkston or Waterford Cosmetic Dentist? Here’s a secret: we believe everything we do at our practice is some form of Cosmetic Dentistry. From orthodontics to dental implants, periodontics to dental restorations, cosmetic dentistry can and will improve the appearance and health of your teeth. Dental restorations and periodontics can help prevent tooth decay that results in missing teeth and gaps in your smile, while orthodontics can correct the crooked positioning of your teeth, or any unflattering overbites and underbites. We also use cosmetic techniques such as veneers, bonding and contouring in order to give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of.
Having stained or yellow-colored teeth may be somewhat embarrassing for some people, or utterly detrimental to one’s self-esteem for others. Veneers are a complex, but effective solution for discolored teeth. They are thin, durable layers made of dental composites or porcelain that are bonded to the front of your existing teeth. The result? A full set of dazzlingly white, natural-looking teeth.
This is a brand name for a type of ultra-thin veneers that can be ideal in some situations.
If your teeth are crooked or cracked, Dr. Wright can help. Bonding can be used to conceal fissures and fractures, or make misaligned teeth look straighter. Bonding is excellent for short to intermediate timeframes while veneers are ideal for longer timeframes.
In contouring, the tooth itself is altered. Subtle changes are made to the morphology, positioning and size of your teeth to make them appear uniform and straight.
These days, you don’t need to wait for weeks before you can receive your custom-made crowns, inlays, onlays, bridges and dental implant restorations. CAD/CAM dentistry utilizes computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing to manufacture and install dental prostheses in the same day.
As your cosmetic dentist in Waterford and Clarkston, we strongly believe that a healthy-looking smile is indicative of truly healthy teeth. Cosmetic dentistry not only improves the appearance of your teeth, it also brings your mouth into a healthy state. This, in turn, contributes to a healthier you.
