What services might be completed during a smile makeover in Farmington Hills?
By Dr. Richard Bernstein
Dr. Richard Bernstein, DDS, of Farmington Hills is a quality dentist who is available to help new and existing patients in achieving the most beautiful smiles! With a smile makeover (also referred to as a smile rehabilitation), patients can restore the appearance of their teeth in an affordable manner while maintaining a natural look. Smile makeovers can take anywhere from a few days to a few months, depending on the severity of the conditions and the treatments selected. Here are a few of the commonly considered methods of improving the smile:
VeneersVeneers are thin porcelain shells that are used to disguise imperfections in natural teeth. They are bonded over the front of a tooth to change the way it looks, and can hide problems such as misalignment, staining, and breakage. They can also be used to hide small gaps between natural teeth as an alternative to dental bonding.
CrownsDental crowns are porcelain restorations custom-made to bond over a natural tooth to protect it and to cover problem areas. Crowns may also be made to fit over a dental implant to act as a false tooth for both function and beauty.
BridgesDental bridges are made of porcelain and use adjacent teeth to support a false tooth called a pontic. This allows patients to fill spaces left by lost teeth. This is an affordable alternative to dental implants, and a more permanent solution than partial dentures.
ImplantsDental implants are used to address areas where natural teeth have been lost. They can also be placed to work in conjunction with traditional cosmetic dentures to give them the stability they need to keep from shifting and causing irritation to the gums. Dental implants are permanent and can last a lifetime with proper care.

DenturesPartial and full dentures are used to restore a smile after tooth loss or extraction, and are a popular choice for patients who are seeking an affordable alternative to bridges or implants.
InvisalignOrthodontic treatment is often used to help patients realign their natural teeth. Invisalign uses clear aligner trays for a discreet way of addressing misalignment.
