How Can Cosmetic Dentistry Improve Your Smile?

Cosmetic dentistry refers to dental work that improves the appearance, but not necessarily the functionality, of the teeth. With advancements in dental technology over the years, there is a wide range of procedures available today that allow for the visible improvement of your smile. At Owens Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we provide high-quality smile makeovers at affordable prices.

Cosmetic Dental Procedures

From teeth whitening to dental implants, to orthodontic aligners, the possibilities are endless when it comes to achieving the perfect smile. Owens Cosmetic and Family Dentistry is proud to be a comprehensive cosmetic dental clinic in Michigan.

Tooth Whitening

The importance of a pearly white smile is something that most people agree on. Society tells us that in order to be beautiful, we must have a perfectly straight and white smile.

While this isn’t necessarily true, it is understandable to want to achieve this. Even if you are not a smoker or don’t regularly drink coffee, other factors such as medications, certain foods and beverages as well as genetics, may all contribute to the discoloration of your teeth over time.

At Owens Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we offer Zoom Whitening for mild to moderate stains and discoloration. This in-office whitening procedure can lighten teeth six to eight shades lighter in just one treatment.

Veneers

Porcelain veneers are custom-designed tooth-colored shells that bond directly to the teeth. They help to improve the appearance of your teeth and conceal any flaws in the tooth’s color, shape, or size. They may also be used to improve the appearance of the alignment of your teeth.

Dental Crowns

Ceramic porcelain crowns are an option for the restoration of broken and discolored teeth. Crowns are designed to cover the tooth and protect it from further damage and decay. Crowns are also used in conjunction with a dental bridge, root canal, and dental implant.

Crowns are long-lasting and improve the strength and appearance of your teeth. Crowns are used in cosmetic and restorative procedures and may contribute to overall oral health.

Bonding

Tooth bonding is considered to be one of the easiest and least expensive cosmetic procedures. A plastic, tooth-colored composite resin is applied to a broken, decayed, or discolored tooth. The material then bonds with the tooth, for a seamless smile. The bonding procedure can be completed in a single visit.

Cosmetic Gum Sculpting and Recontouring

If your gums sit too low or too high on your teeth, you may be a candidate for a gum contouring procedure. Gum contouring is a cosmetic procedure that allows the dentist to cut away excessive gum or to build on the gum line and restore it.

What is The Cost of Cosmetic Dental Procedures?

With a range of available cosmetic procedures, the cost of the procedures varies. However, at Owens Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we believe that cost should not prevent you from achieving the smile you have always wanted.

Prior to your procedure, Dr. Owens performs a thorough examination to check for signs of gum disease and to assess your mouth and discusses the financial breakdown of the recommended dental work to be performed. Our office is proud to work with Care Credit to offer financing options to our patients because we believe everyone deserves a healthy and beautiful smile.

How to Choose a Cosmetic Dentist?

In choosing a dentist to perform cosmetic procedures, it is important to consider their background and reputation. During the consultation, you may ask for before and after photographs and ask questions about their history in cosmetic dentistry as well. It is important to be as thorough as possible and make sure you feel comfortable.
