FAQs

Cosmetic Dentist in St. Clair Shores.

What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry is focused primarily on the appearance of your teeth and smile. Every cosmetic dental procedure takes into consideration both the aesthetics and function of your teeth. Your smile will not only look great, but will have lasting results.

What procedures does cosmetic dentistry include?
Cosmetic dentistry can help fix teeth stains, oddly shaped teeth, missing teeth, and chips, cracks or breaks in teeth. There are a wide range of cosmetic treatments that you can choose from to achieve your desired smile, including teeth whitening, bonding and veneers.

How long will each cosmetic treatment take?
Just as every smile we treat is unique, so are the treatments we provide. While cosmetic treatment times may vary, some treatments are completed within one office visit.

Is teeth whitening safe?
Teeth whitening is a safe, effective procedure, and does not typically include any negative side effects. At-home teeth whitening treatment may have an increased chance of side effects, including white spots on the surface of the teeth or irritated gums due to the use of trays. Minor side effects may include temporary increased tooth sensitivity for both in-office and at-home treatment.

How long do porcelain veneers last?
Veneers can last between 7 to 20 years. With optimal oral hygiene and regular dental appointments, your veneers can last for a very long time. Veneers can be repaired or replaced in the rare cases when they come off or chip.

What will my new smile look like?
We will use photographs and models to show you what to expect, even before we start any procedure. A smile enhancement is made to look both dramatic and natural.

Why should I be interested in cosmetic dentistry?
In addition to improving the overall appearance of your smile, cosmetic dentistry can help to improve your overall health and well-being. An improved smile can boost your self-image, as well as prevent further damage to your teeth.

Is my new smile permanent?
With proper oral health care and regular visits to our office, your restorations may last for years.
