Routine Dental Cleaning
We suggest that every patient should come in for a dental cleaning every 6 months or as recommended by their dentist. During the cleaning, our registered dental hygienist will remove plaque and tarter build up from your teeth leaving behind a bright and polished smile. In addition, our hygienist will educate you on how to maintain your smile and therefore your oral health between visits.
We offer a wide range of cosmetic dental services that allow our patients to achieve the smile they have always dreamed about. we are able to enhance your smile in a variety of ways; including veneers, natural-looking tooth colored fillings, and teeth whitening.
Do you wish you had a brighter, more radiant smile? Then professional teeth whitening may be right for you! Teeth whitening can remove certain stains from: Tea, coffee, wine, and soda, certain medications, the natural aging process, tobacco use, fluorosis. Soon after starting treatment you will start to see a whiter and brighter smile. Schedule an appointment for a consultation with Drs. Klonowski and Bailey to see if you're a candidate for teeth whitening!
A silver filling is usually placed on your back teeth. Your back teeth are used for withstanding heavy biting forces from your jaw. This material can withstand the forces exerted by your jaw.
A white colored bonding is usually placed on front teeth, where people can usually see. Sometimes bonding can be done on back teeth depending on the size of the restoration and amount of decay present.
Crowns, sometimes called caps, are coverings that surround your entire tooth. Crowns can be gold or tooth-colored. A crown protects the remaining structure of your tooth and is used when a filling is not indicated. These are usually long-lasting options. Tooth-colored (porcelain) crowns match the natural contours and shade of your teeth.
Bridges are done when you have a missing space in your mouth and you want more teeth to chew with, or you do not like the way it looks. Having missing spaces in your mouth can lead to many problems, mostly with your bite. When there is no contact with adjacent teeth, they begin to move in non-ideal places. Bridges are identical to crowns, except they replace a missing space in your mouth.
Implants are usually the best option when it comes to replacing missing spaces in your mouth. After a review of your medical history and an exam, implants can be considered. No adjacent teeth are used when an implant is placed. Although more costly, this is usually the best option when it comes to replacing teeth.
Partials and complete dentures are a multi-visit procedure. Dentures are usually done to replace multiple missing spaces. Attention to existing teeth are important when wearing a partial because they are used to clasp the partial into place. Complete dentures are done to replace an entire arch of missing teeth.
Traditional metal braces are still the most popular types of braces as they produce high quality results and can be livened up with colorful bands. They are made of stainless steel and are attached to the cheek side of the patient's teeth. Braces have been designed to allow the orthodontist to move a patient's teeth in a three dimensional manner.
Invisalign® is a system that straightens teeth without the use of traditional braces. A series of clear plastic aligners are utilized to create tooth movement. Moving teeth with removable aligners is not new. It is the computer program that generates a series of aligners with small changes that is new. At Kathleen Klonowski, DDS and Ashly Bailey, DDS, our doctors are certified by the Invisalign® company to offer patients with this convenient teeth straightening system. Invisalign® is recommended for most orthodontic situations with mild to moderate spacing or crowding. The aligners are virtually undetectable, easy to use, and comfortable to wear.
Dental emergencies can be very frightening and often painful. Prompt treatment is generally required to alleviate pain and ensure the patient's oral and overall health. If you're dealing with a dental emergency, call us immediately at 989-799-5690 and we will schedule you in as soon as possible. Should you call during after hours, call our regular number and our voicemail will inform you of how to get in touch with us.
