What is Cosmetic Dentistry? Dentist Lake Leelanau, MI

The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to improve the appearance of teeth that show when you smile and talk. If you’ve ever felt self-conscious while smiling, you owe it to yourself to schedule a consultation with your dentist.

We can help you explore your options for cosmetic dentistry so you can start smiling with confidence. Continue reading to learn about the dental services we offer patients.

Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is able to repair:

  • Tooth discoloration
  • Chipped tooth
  • Cracked tooth
  • Slight gaps between teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Irregularly shaped teeth
  • Small cavities

Teeth Bonding

Your dentist may recommend teeth bonding to repair teeth with small chips, cracks, and cavities. Dental bonding can also be used to fix irregularly shaped teeth or teeth with slight gaps. During your appointment, your dentist will apply a composite resin to the surface of your tooth. We then use a ultraviolet light or laser to harden the tooth-colored material.

Invisalign®️

Wish you could straighten teeth without braces? Ask your Invisalign dentist if you’re a candidate for clear aligner treatment. Like the name suggests, Invisalign are nearly invisible aligners that move your teeth little by little into a beautifully straight smile. In order for Invisalign to work, you must wear your aligners 20 to 22 hours a day. Many of our patients appreciate that Invisalign can help them discreetly straighten teeth without their friends, coworkers, and family knowing.

Same-Day Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are wafer-thin teeth covers made of porcelain. Your dentist may recommend porcelain veneers if you have front teeth with slight chips, cracks, or stains. For example, we may recommend dental veneers for chipped tooth repair.

The entire veneers procedure takes one trip to our office. During your appointment with us, we’ll remove a small amount of enamel from the fronts of your receiving teeth. Next, we’ll take digital dental impressions to send to the milling machine in our office. Once your veneers are ready, our dentists will make sure your porcelain veneers are the right shape, fit, and color before bonding them to the fronts of your teeth.

KöR®️ Teeth Whitening

Aren’t getting the results you want with over-the-counter whitening strips and trays? Feeling self-conscious of stained teeth? Ask your teeth whitening dentist if you’re a candidate for KöR teeth whitening. KöR whitening can help whiten your teeth by several shades in one appointment. We understand that your time is important, which is why we offer quick solutions for teeth whitening.

Teeth Whitening at Home

If you’re interested in teeth whitening at home, ask your dentist to create a custom tray. During your first appointment with us, we’ll take impressions of your teeth to send to the lab. When you return to our office later, your custom whitening traywill be ready. Our dentists may slightly adjust the fit of your tray so it sits comfortably in your mouth.

Dr. Lisa Siddall DDS and Dr. Erik Burke DDS can help you explore your options for cosmetic dentistry so you can smile with confidence. To schedule your appointment with one of our holistic dentists in Lake Leelanau MI, call (231) 256-9142.
