Advanced Dentistry Can Improve Your Smile

June 21, 2024

When you have a cavity or infection, or if you or a family member damages a tooth, then you need treatment to avoid complications and discomfort. Fortunately, we can help with our advanced dentistry options, including lifelike fillings and crowns. In today’s blog, your Lake Orion, MI, dentist talks about advanced dentistry and how we can offer natural-looking improvement for your smile.

Placing Fillings That Match Your Teeth

When you have a cavity, this could cause a toothache and increase the risk of dental infection. But we can help with a dental filling! Using composite resin instead of metal means a more holistic and lifelike solution to tooth decay, one that is safe for patients of all ages. Placement only takes one visit, and the restoration is shaded to blend with the rest of your tooth. We can also use the same material to offer lifelike cosmetic improvement for issues like chipped teeth or spaces between gaps and black triangle spaces between the teeth.

CEREC Same-Day Dental Crowns

Dental crowns can handle more advanced cases of tooth decay and even aid in treating infection. They can also reshape the teeth to improve smile beauty and bite balance, and aid in repairing dental damage too. Instead of requiring two to three visits for the placement process, we can design, craft, and place the completed crown in only one visit. With CEREC technology, we will offer same-day crowns made from ceramic, a material that can handle daily bite forces and be shaded to blend with the rest of your smile.

SureSmile Aligners

Do you have crooked, crowded, or overlapping teeth? Dental misalignment can alter the appearance of your smile and cause embarrassment. In addition, this can cause your oral health and bite function to offer too! Instead of only offering improvement with braces, we can provide a more esthetically-friendly option with SureSmile. Our team will create a series of aligners from a clear and BPA-free plastic material, which are custom-made to ensure a comfortable fit. You wear a set for two weeks, 20 to 22 hours a day, and then contouring treatment with the next set in the series. Over time, this shifts your smile and corrects misalignment, often in as title as one year. The aligners are also easy to remove before meals or prior to brushing and flossing. The aligners also travel with you and are easy to clean and store.


What if you have lost a tooth, or as many as three in a row? Then our team can create a dental bridge to fit in this gap and complete your smile, so you avoid the impactions of missing teeth. The prosthetic contains new teeth with crowns on one or both ends. We attach the crowns to the abutment teeth, the ones on each side of your gap. This secures the restoration for years to come, 10 to 15 in most cases. You avoid misalignment and ensure a prosthetic that can be shaded to blend with your smile.


What if you have more substantial tooth loss? Then you may need a set of dentures. We have full dentures, which replace every tooth on one or both arches. We also have partials, which can address multiple gaps spread out across your smile, which is perfect for those with tooth loss too severe for bridges, but not severe enough to warrant a full denture. Each prosthetic is custom-made to ensure a lifelike appearance and a comfortable fit, so you enjoy a balanced bite and results that reflect your unique facial structure. Removable dentures last about 5 to 10 years before replacement or adjustment is needed, and with dental implants we could offer dentures that last for decades.
