Unhappy with your smile? Cosmetic dentistry can give you a smile you love. Cosmetic dentistry refers to dental work that improves the cosmetic dentistryappearance of a person's teeth or gums. Dr. William Carmody and Dr. Debra Halsey at Rochester Dental in Troy, MI, offer a complete range of dental services. Here are six ways cosmetic dentistry can help improve your smile.

1. Dental Bonding- Dental bonding is the application of tooth-colored resin using adhesives and a special light. Bonding is used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth. Bonding can also be used to close gaps between teeth, make teeth look longer, or change the shape of teeth.

2. Dental Crowns- Dental crowns, also known as caps, are protective coverings that are placed over teeth. Dental crowns are used to restore weakened, broken, cracked, and badly decayed teeth. 

3. Dental Bridges- A bridge is made to replace one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two crowns on each side of the gap and a fabricated tooth in between. Bridges can be supported by implants, natural teeth, or a combination of implants and teeth. Dental bridges look like your natural teeth, so you can feel good about your smile.

4. Dental Implants- Dental implants are the gold standard in the replacement of missing teeth. Dental implants are a type of false teeth which mount to posts that are surgically implanted in the jawbone by a dentist. Dental implants will restore your confidence to speak, eat, and enjoy life with confidence.

5. Dental Veneers- Dental veneers can give you a stunning celebrity-like smile makeover. Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are placed over the front part of the teeth to improve your appearance. Dental veneers are routinely used to cover teeth that are crooked, discolored, broken, chipped, or worn down.

6. Teeth Whitening- Want a bright, white smile? Professional teeth whitening erases years of dental stains. Your main options are at-home and in-office bleaching. At-home whitening involves custom-made trays filled with bleaching gel that you can use at home. In-office bleaching is an innovative, chair-side whitening procedure. In-office bleaching uses a stronger whitening agent and a light to speed up the whitening process.
