A bright smile can take years off your appearance and boost your self-confidence. It’s no fun having a dark, dingy smile that you’re embarrassed to show off. But over the years, our habits, lifestyle, and genetics can take a real toll on our teeth, turning them dull and yellow.
You don’t have to accept your less-than-glamorous grin as an inevitable part of growing older. At North Oaks Dental of Royal Oak, MI, we have cosmetic dental procedures that will give your smile its glow back. Call us at 248-220-7021 or fill out our and we will get back to you promptly.
This is perhaps the most obvious choice to restore the luster of your pearly whites. At North Oaks Dental, we offer professional teeth whitening treatments, which are both gentle and powerful, capable of quickly lightening your grin by several shades. Don’t confuse our professional-grade products with those whitening kits at your local drugstore. Ours use a higher-percentage of whitening chemical, so they work much better. Our trays our custom-fitted to your mouth, so they keep the solution right where it should be — on your teeth. Drugstore kits are weak, so you may be tempted to leave them on longer than recommended, which can cause sensitivity. And since the whitening trays are not custom-fitted, they tend to leach product onto the gums.
Teeth bonding is a procedure that uses a composite resin material (similar to that used for tooth-colored fillings) to cover blemishes on your teeth — chips, cracks, and of course, discoloration. The putty-like material is perfectly matched to your enamel shade and carefully shaped and molded to the tooth. It’s hardened using a special light and polished. Teeth bonding may make sense for you if you have small stains.
Dental veneers are the secret behind numerous celebrities’ megawatt smiles. A dental veneer is a very thin shell of material, like porcelain, that is bonded to the front of the tooth. It hides a wide range of cosmetic dental problems all at once: chips, cracks, crookedness, gaps, and, of course, stains. Dental veneers are even effective in covering deep, or intrinsic, stains that chemical whiteners have trouble removing. You may get a single veneer or an entire new smile.
At North Oaks Dental, our porcelain veneers give you a gorgeous and flawless grin that looks completely natural. Porcelain has a translucent quality that mimics real teeth. The veneers process involves removing a small amount of enamel from each tooth to receive a veneer. Your dental veneers will be custom crafted just for you. They will be permanently bonded to the enamel, where they can last decades with proper care.
