    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

    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.

    Inlays & Onlays

    Inlays and onlays are sometimes called “indirect fillings” because they are made in an off-site lab before we bond them to your teeth. A dental inlay or onlay can be a good compromise if you have a cavity that’s too small for a crown and too big for a simple filling. Our dentist wants to help you keep as much natural tooth structure as possible, which is why he offers dental inlays and onlays to patients.

    Veneers & Lumineers®️

    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 our 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, our 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. If you would prefer to keep tooth enamel, we also offer Lumineers.

    Snap-On Smile®️

    A Snap-On Smile is an affordable smile makeover. The Snap-On Smile is similar to a denture, except that you wear it over your natural teeth. Many of our patients appreciate that the Snap-On Smile can be worn while eating. That way, your new smile looks natural when you’re out with family and friends.

    Teeth Whitening

    We provide options for teeth whitening at home and in our office. If you choose to whiten teeth at home, our 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.

    Dr. Piotrowski DDS and his team provide services for cosmetic dentistry so you can start smiling with confidence. To schedule your appointment with our Grand Rapids dentist, call Precision Family Dental at (616) 207-1280.
