Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root (typically made of titanium) we place in your jaw to later anchor a crown. Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants are stable because they’re fused to your jawbone. Dental implants are also able to prevent further jawbone deterioration so you can avoid the likelihood of facial collapse.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are wafer-thin porcelain shells we’re able to bond to the front of your teeth. Our Grandville cosmetic dentists may recommend porcelain veneers if you have front teeth that are chipped, discolored, stained, or have other small issues that affect the appearance of your smile.

Teeth Bonding

During the teeth bonding procedure, our dentists will apply a special tooth-colored material to the surface of your tooth. Our cosmetic dentists may recommend dental bonding if you have teeth that are slightly chipped, misshapen, or even discolored. Teeth bonding can also be done to close slight gaps between front teeth.

Dental Bridges

Like the name suggests, a dental bridge “bridges” the gap in your smile left by a missing tooth. A dental bridge is comprised of a false tooth anchored in place by dental crowns on healthy adjacent teeth. A tooth bridge may also be placed between dental implants or a healthy tooth and dental implant. By filling the empty space, you’ll be able to provide support to healthy adjacent teeth so they don’t shift or even eventually fall out.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown covers the entire visible portion of your tooth above the gum line. Our dentists may recommend a crown to restore the strength and appearance of a fragile tooth. For example, we may use a crown to restore a tooth with a cavity that’s too big to be fixed by a simple filling. In the world of cosmetic dentistry, dental crowns are often used to fix the appearance of teeth that are chipped, broken, discolored, or misshapen.

Teeth Whitening

Want to achieve a noticeably brighter smile? Professional teeth whitening is a great way to boost your self-confidence and feel better about the appearance of your smile.
