Continue reading to learn about some of the dental services we offer patients.


Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry can help you:

  • Smile with confidence
  • Close slight gaps between teeth
  • Whiten teeth by several shades
  • Fix minor imperfections in front teeth
  • Help improve oral health

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a prosthetic tooth tooth (typically made of titanium) used to support a crown. If you have one or more missing teeth, your dentist may recommend dental implants to restore your smile. Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants offer more stability while you eat and talk because they’re fused to your jawbone. Many of our patients appreciate that dental implants look and feel like natural teeth.

Crown Lengthening

Do you have a gummy smile? If so, your dentist can remove excess gum tissue covering up your front teeth in a procedure called crown lengthening. We’ll also sculpt the gum line so it looks more symmetrical. Cosmetic dentistry is as much an art as it is a science. We use crown lengthening to expose more of your upper teeth for a beautiful smile.

Teeth Bonding

Teeth bonding is a simple smile makeover we can do in one appointment. We may recommend dental bonding if you feel self-conscious of slight chips, cracks, and stains on your front teeth. During the procedure, we apply a tooth-colored resin that matches the color of your natural enamel. The resin is then hardened to the surface of your tooth so you can start smiling with confidence.

Porcelain Veneers

You may be a candidate for dental veneers if you’d like to cover slight cosmetic damage to front teeth. A veneer is a wafer-thin porcelain shell your dentist is able to bond to the front of your tooth to cover slight chips, cracks, and discoloration.

To prepare your teeth for the veneers procedure, your dentist will need to remove a small amount of enamel from the fronts of your teeth. Otherwise, the porcelain veneers will make your teeth seem large and bulky.

Teeth Whitening

We provide options for teeth whitening at home and in our office. If you choose to whiten teeth at home, your teeth whitening dentist can create a tray custom-fit to the contours of your smile. We would also give you a bleaching gel to use that’s stronger than what you’d be able to find over the counter. If you would prefer to whiten teeth by several shades in one appointment, schedule a time for Zoom teeth whitening in our office.

Our dentists provide services for cosmetic dentistry so you can start smiling with confidence. To schedule your appointment with one of our Westland dentists, call the Parkside Dental Team at (734) 261-6060.
