Am I Candidate For Cosmetic Dentistry Jenison, MI

Your smile says a lot about your personality. If you’ve ever felt self-conscious about your smile, it’s time to schedule a consultation with one of our dentists.

We provide a range of cosmetic dentistry procedures to help patients smile with confidence. Continue reading to learn whether you’re a candidate for cosmetic dentistry.

Teeth Bonding

Our dentists use teeth bonding to repair slight damage to teeth in the smile zone. You may be a candidate for dental bonding if you have front teeth that are chipped, gapped, unevenly spaced, or irregularly shaped.

Teeth bonding is a noninvasive procedure because we don’t have to remove enamel. Instead, we clean and roughen the surface of your tooth before applying a tooth-colored resin that matches the rest of your smile. Patients can get dental bonding done in one appointment.

Teeth Whitening

You may need to look no further than your coffee mug to discover how your teeth became dull or yellow over time. Fortunately, our dentists offer Zoom teeth whitening in our office to noticeably whiten your smile by several shades. We also provide take-home teeth whitening trays to help you maintain the look of your white smile from home.


Veneers are wafer-thin porcelain shells our dentists are able to bond to the fronts of teeth that show when you smile and talk. These teeth covers are able to hide chips, cracks, and discoloration. We are also able to use dental veneers to correct irregularly-shaped teeth. Your porcelain veneers will be placed in two appointments to our office.

During your first appointment, we’ll remove a small amount of enamel from the fronts of your receiving teeth. Next, we’ll take dental impressions to send to the lab where your veneers will be made. To protect your teeth in the meantime, we’ll place temporary teeth covers. When you return for your second appointment, your dentist may make slight adjustments to the color and fit of your veneers so they look natural.

Six Month Smiles

Want straighter teeth in 6 months? Ask our dentists if you’re a candidate for Six Month Smiles, clear braces that safely and effectively move your teeth into optimal alignment. To be a candidate for these white braces, you must be over the age of 16. With Six Month Smiles you are able to discretely move teeth so you can smile with confidence.

ClearCorrect Aligners

Wish you could straighten teeth without braces? Ask your dentist if you’re a candidate for ClearCorrect aligners. ClearCorrect works by exerting pressure on teeth to move into optimal alignment. The translucent trays fit over your teeth and can be removed during meals and teeth brushing.

Many of our patients appreciate that these nearly invisible aligners are subtle enough to go unnoticed by friends, family, and co-workers. Unless someone is standing close to you, they won’t be able to tell that you’re wearing clear aligners. You may be a candidate for aligners as long as you don’t have severe issues with your bite.
