Do you have a few flaws in your teeth? Even small imperfections can be very noticeable when you smile, laugh or speak. Your Grand Rapids, MI, cosmetic dentist, Dr. Thomas Lambert, can help you improve your smile with a variety of cosmetic services and treatments.
Brighten Your Dull Smile
Teeth whitening treatment erases stains that make teeth look dull or yellow. If do-it-yourself whitening hasn't produced the results you expected, you may want to consider professional whitening instead. The whiteners your Grand Rapids dentist uses are stronger than those in over-the-counter kits and lighten your teeth three to eight shades. Best of all, whitening only takes about an hour.
Temporary crowns are a thing of the past, thanks to an innovative new crown production process. During your visit, your dentist prepares your tooth, then fabricates your crown while you wait. Do dental impressions usually make you gag? Digital dental impressions used to create same-day crowns don't require messy putty.
Same-day crowns improve the appearance and function of broken teeth, strengthen fragile teeth and can even be used to lengthen short teeth, hide discolorations or completely change the shape of a tooth.
Whether you want to conceal a chip in your tooth or straighten a twisted tooth, veneers offer a simple way to transform your smile. The thin, tooth-shaped shells cover the fronts of your teeth only. Veneers can:
- Close slight gaps between teeth
- Cover cracks, chips, uneven surfaces and other imperfections
- Improve the color of a tooth or whiten your entire smile
- Lengthen short teeth
- Change the shape of a tooth
Dental implants offer the newest way to tackle tooth loss. The titanium implants replace your missing roots and are implanted in your jawbone during minor oral surgery. Once the implants bond to the bone, they'll be attached to dental crowns, which look just the visible part of your teeth. Implants look and feel natural and don't decrease your biting power. They're even a good choice if you wear dentures. In fact, implant-supported dentures can be attached to your upper or lower jaw with as few as four implants.
