Better Teeth Could Give You A Reason To Smile

When was the last time you bought a new shirt, a new dress, or some new shoes because you liked how they looked when you put them on?

When you get a haircut, does it make you feel a little better, at least for a little while?

How we look matters to us. It helps us feel more confident in social, personal, and professional situations.

And it’s why you might want to consider cosmetic dentistry .

Think about it. When you get a haircut, you know it’s going to grow out eventually. When you put some new clothes, you know they will wear out over time.

But your smile is something that you always have with you. So, why not give yourself the best smile that you can have?

If you live in or near Rochester Hills, MI, we welcome you to schedule a consultation at Hillstream Dental (formerly Hubbard & Leath Dental) by calling 248-266-2528. You can also visit our second location in St. Clair Shores.


Tired of Broken Teeth?

Human teeth are pretty strong, but they aren’t invulnerable.

If you bite into the wrong thing, take your eye off the ball during a game of catch, or trip and fall, you could chip or break one or more of your teeth.

Whether this break is big or small, it could alter the appearance of your smile. This could make you feel self-conscious about meeting someone new, whether it’s a new neighbor or a potential customer.

Depending on which tooth is chipped or broken and how severe the damage it, we have a few solutions that could work for you.

Many patients choose dental bonding to make minor repairs to their smiles. The bonding material a composite resin that can be shaded and polished so it looks like part of your natural tooth. With proper care, the bonding can last for years.

For a longer-term solution, you may prefer dental veneers. Veneers are custom-made to fit over the front of a tooth. In the case of a chip or a break, a veneer can restore your tooth to its original size. These can last for a decade or longer.

Another long-term option is a dental crown. Modern crowns can be made with stronger, more durable ceramic materials. This makes it nearly impossible to tell a dental crown from a real one.


Wish Your Teeth Were Whiter?

You definitely aren’t alone. This is easily one of the most popular cosmetic requests we get from our patients.

Your cup(s) of coffee may help you get going each morning, but that coffee isn’t great for the color of your smile. Coffee isn’t the only culprit, either. Cake, cookies, pizza, pie, soft drinks, spaghetti, burritos …

Really anything that could leave a stain on your clothes could also add to the stains on your smile.

Professional teeth whitening is a safe, efficient, and effective way of getting rid of those stains. Our Zoom teeth whitening is more powerful than anything you can find in stores. That’s why you could see a change in your smile in just one visit!

Veneers also can be used to make your teeth look whiter. When you get veneers to cover your teeth, we can make them as bright as you would like.


Want to Replace Old, Metal Fillings?

If you had a cavity, then you probably have a filling. And if you got that filling a while ago, then it may be made of gold or amalgam (mercury blended with other metals).

When they are new, metal fillings can be distracting, but as they age, they can become darker, making your smile less attractive.

If you want to have a natural-looking smile again, we could replace your old, worn-out metal fillings with a tooth-colored filling instead. Using our composite resin, we can give you a filling that makes it look like you never had a cavity!

This can help you feel better about showing your teeth the next time someone asks you to smile for a picture.


You Can Have a Smile Makeover!

In addition to the services mentioned above, our doctors at Hillstream Dental can close gaps in your smile, make your teeth look straight, and correct bite problems such as overbites and underbites.

We can even combine two or more services to give you a complete smile makeover.

But we can only help if you schedule an appointment with us. To do that, start by either contacting us online or by calling 248-266-2528.
