Cosmetic Filling Replacement
Fillings have changed over the years and metal fillings are now a thing of the past. Old amalgam fillings contain metals that can discolor over time. In modern dentistry, it’s no longer the only option for fillings. Our cosmetic dentistry utilizes composite materials to create filling replacements. These new fillings reflect light the same way that your actual tooth does and makes it almost impossible to notice.
Composite fillings also strengthen your tooth, instead of just filling in the cavity. Their insertion also involves less drilling than a traditional filling because they bond with the tooth itself. Most important, they don’t age as quickly. An aging amalgam filling may allow decay to enter the tooth.
If your teeth are broken, chipped, discolored, or out of alignment, porcelain veneers might be the solution for you. These shell coverings adhere to the surface of your tooth and as a result, offer a long-term solution to a variety of cosmetic problems.
Porcelain veneers are a good choice for patients with healthy teeth and gums. To apply the veneers, we remove a small layer of enamel from your teeth to ensure they’re flush. To avoid any discomfort during this step, we’ll numb your mouth prior to. Following enamel removal, we take impressions of your teeth and send them to a lab. The lab will then create your custom set of veneers for you and in the interim, to protect your teeth, our team will provide a set of temporary veneers. Once the new veneers arrive, we will test them to make sure they’re a perfect fit and then bond them to your teeth in a simple and painless process.
Just like your regular teeth, you should take good care of your veneers with regular brushing, flossing, and office visits for regular teeth cleanings. Contact us today to schedule your visit!
Professional teeth whitening offers patients the best results in a relatively short amount of time. We apply a hydrogen-peroxide based gel to your teeth, and then activate it with a special light. Our cosmetic dentistry team takes extra care to ensure your gums and lips are protected during this time. This process is completely safe, painless, and the results are immediate.
We also offer an at-home option that includes take home trays for patients who prefer the convenience of whitening at home. With these, you’ll notice the effects over the course of about a week and can control the level of whitening you desire. These trays also help to maintain the effects of our in-office whitening over time.
Traditional braces can take up to two years to produce results and work in two stages; the first, moving the crown of the tooth into alignment and the second doing the same with the root of the tooth. With the FastBraces patented system, it uses triangular brackets and a square-shaped wire to correct the position of the tooth. While they’re similar in appearance to traditional braces, they cause less pain and work much quicker aligning the crown and the root at the same time.
Depending on the state of your teeth, FastBraces can finish the job in as little as three months to one year. Additionally, this option allows for less retainer time, requiring as little as 15-20 minutes of wear per day after removal. Rest assured you’re in good hands as Fischer Family Dentistry is the leading provider of FastBraces technology in Southeast Michigan!
Invisalign Braces/Clear Correct
Say goodbye to metal braces! Invisalign is a nearly invisible treatment that will align your teeth without the discomfort and expense of traditional braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic aligners custom made to gradually move your teeth into place. Our team uses 3D technology to create your treatment plan, and shape the aligners. Every two weeks, you’ll change them out for a new pair until the desired result is achieved.
Invisalign is a comfortable, safe, and affordable option over traditional braces. They’re removable, so you can take them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss. Without the wires and brackets, there aren’t restrictions on what you can eat and it makes the cleaning process a breeze.
With this system, we recommend visiting our offices every 6 weeks for a check-up. If you’re wary of the look and cost of traditional braces, Invisalign might be the option for you.
