Spotlight-Ready Smiles: Cosmetic Dentistry In Royal Oak

what are dental implants

A mouth full of dingy or crooked teeth can really distract from anyone’s appearance. With cosmetic dentistry from Gustafson Morningstar Dentistry in Royal Oak, you’ll get a red-carpet-worthy smile.

Cosmetic dentistry can restore the luster to your smile, that may have faded from years of wear and tear. All it takes are procedures like dental veneers, teeth whitening, or straightening.

What are dental veneers? Veneers are paper-thin shells of durable material (ceramic, porcelain, or composite resin) bonded to the teeth to provide strength and add beauty to any smile.

What are dental implants? A wonderful long-term solution for missing teeth, dental implants are artificial roots surgically implanted in the jaw to anchor a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, or denture.

What is teeth whitening? Professional teeth whitening products can restore the glow to your smile. It far surpasses anything that comes out of a toothpaste tube.

The best way to find out if veneers or dental implants are a possibility is to meet with Steven Gustafson DDS at Gustafson Morningstar Dentistry for a smile makeover consultation.

At Gustafson Morningstar Dentistry in Royal Oak, cosmetic dentistry can create a smile you will be proud to flash.

Restorative Dentistry in Birmingham MI

Royal Oak Dental Implants and Dental BridgesTooth replacement is frequently requested at Gustafson Morningstar Dentistry. When my patients here in Birmingham MI want information about this form of restorative dentistry, two of the things I tell them about are fixed (or traditional) dental bridges and dental implants.

A dental bridge is an artificial tooth that replaces a missing tooth. The false tooth—called a pontic—is fused to porcelain crowns on adjacent sides of the extracted tooth.

Tooth Implants Replace the Root and Crown

Dental implants are also popular, and for some patients are a better choice. A dental implant includes a titanium post surgically inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. The post integrates with the bone to provide a stable foundation for the replacement tooth.

After it has bonded with the bone (it usually takes three to six months), a smaller post is attached. This post extends above the gum line. The artificial tooth (crown) is then placed. The entire process takes several months, but consistently yields incredible results.

Preserving Facial Contour

Both of these restoration options maintain or restore facial contour and allow you to talk and eat normally. Tooth replacements prevent adjoining teeth from gradually shifting and can help correct bite troubles, as well.

Tooth implants and dental bridges can replace one or more missing teeth. Many men and women have been treated successfully with these restorative dentistry procedures.
