What cosmetic dentistry options are available to patients in the Farmington Hills area?
By Dr. Richard Bernstein
Patients in and around the Farmington Hills area often ask Dr. Richard S. Bernstein, DDS which cosmetic dentistry options are available to them at his state-of-the-art practice. Here are just a few of the most commonly considered treatments in his facility:
Porcelain VeneersCoverage of imperfections is one way to quickly address areas of concern. Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin ceramic pieces which are bonded over the front of the natural tooth to hide problems such as unusually shaped teeth, breakage, misalignment, and permanent staining.
Dental ImplantsMissing teeth can be easily replaced with a revolutionary method known as dental implants. Implants are placed into the jawbone and restored over the top with a dental crown to function and appear as a false tooth to improve efficiency of the smile as well as the beauty.
Porcelain CrownsCoverage of teeth that have become broken or weakened can also be done in an aesthetic manner with porcelain crows. These “caps” are custom made for patients after the tooth has been prepared with the removal of a thin portion of enamel. These are bonded over teeth and provide coverage of all sides of the natural tooth.
BridgesDental bridges are used as an alternative to dental implants and dentures for repairing the smile after tooth loss. They work best in situations where patients have lost one or more teeth within the dental arch and need a quick yet permanent option for replacement.
InvisalignOrthodontics are a wonderful method of realigning the smile in an effective manner, but most adult patient are turned off by traditional metal and bracket wires. Instead, patients can use Invisalign which produces the same results with clear aligner trays.
