How your dentists in Waterford can help your smiledental procedures

Dental procedures can do a lot to restore and enhance your smile. You don’t have to put up with damaged or lost teeth or to settle for an uneven smile. Your dentists at Stannard & Studt & Wolf in Waterford, MI want to share the facts about dental procedures that can give you an outstanding smile.

If you have gaps in your smile due to lost teeth, there is an innovative, state-of-the-art way to complete your smile. It’s called dental implants and they are just like your natural teeth. You can clean them like natural teeth too, with regular brushing and flossing. One of the major benefits is that dental implants are permanent and will never move around when you eat or speak because they are embedded in the bone of your jaw.

If you have poorly positioned or crooked teeth, or a badly aligned jaw, you should consider Invisalign orthodontic treatment. Invisalign is different from conventional braces because Invisalign uses clear plastic appliances called aligners. These aligners are smooth with no metal parts, making Invisalign one of the most comfortable orthodontic treatments available. It is also discreet and virtually invisible to others. Treatment takes about nine to fifteen months.

Root canals can save damaged, broken or badly decayed teeth, helping you keep your complete smile. Diseased, infected tissue is removed from your teeth and replaced with an inert material. Treatment relieves pain completely and still allows you to keep your teeth. After root canal treatment, it is advisable to place crowns on treated teeth to prevent breakage.

Dental crowns protect your teeth from breakage. You can restore your teeth and biting function with dental crowns. You can also improve the look and function of your smile with porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns, which provide aesthetics and strength. The most cosmetically beautiful crown material is porcelain, which reflects light just like your teeth; these crowns are virtually indistinguishable from your existing teeth.

These are just a few of the procedures your dentist in Waterford can provide to improve the health and beauty of your smile. For a complete list of dental services, please visit the dental services page on the website at
