Cosmetic DentistryHow cosmetic dental procedures from your dentist in Trenton, Michigan can enhance your smile

Are you wondering if cosmetic dentistry can help your smile? The truth is, whatever bothers you about your smile, chances are there is a procedure to correct the problem. From whitening, to tooth-colored fillings, to veneers, cosmetic dentistry offers something for everyone. Dr. Nicholas Booker at Booker Family Dentistry in Trenton, MI, offers a full range of cosmetic, restorative, and preventive dental services to enhance your smile.

Cosmetic dentistry is an option for just about everyone, but it helps to have a healthy mouth first. Before you consider cosmetic dentistry, you should repair and restore any painful dental problems, like decay, first. Then, move on to making your smile beautiful with your Trenton, MI, dentist.

These are just a few of the many cosmetic dentistry options available to give you a great-looking smile:

Professional teeth whitening can whiten and brighten, even the dullest of smiles. With professional teeth whitening, you can whiten your smile up to 8 shades. Your wonderful results can last up to 5 years! Unlike over-the-counter whitening products, which may contain harmful chemicals, professional teeth whitening products are tested and approved by the American Dental Association. At Booker Family Dentistry, you can choose from a quick in-office treatment that takes about an hour or a convenient take-home whitening kit.

Tooth-colored fillings can provide beauty as well as protection. They are a great choice to replace old, ugly, worn-out metal fillings. Tooth-colored fillings use composite, a liquid resin material that can be matched to the color of your teeth and sculpted to blend with the natural contours of your teeth. The composite is hardened with a dental light, leaving you with a filling that is strong and virtually invisible. Tooth-colored fillings enhance your smile, instead of detracting from it.

Porcelain veneers can give you a smile that says perfection. Porcelain veneers are thin laminates of light-reflective, stain-resistant porcelain. They are cemented on to the front surfaces of your teeth, hiding cracks, fracture lines, broken or chipped tooth structure, and other aesthetic problems. Porcelain veneers are minimally invasive because Dr. Booker removes little to no tooth structure, just enough to accommodate the thickness of the veneers.

These are just a few of the many cosmetic dental services available to enhance your smile. It’s time for you to discover why cosmetic dentistry is a great option for your teeth. Call (734) 675-5700 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Booker at Booker Family Dentistry in Trenton, MI, today!

It is not often that you find a celebrity who is willing to speak candidly about any cosmetic or restorative dentistry that he or she has had. Instead, most prefer that their fans just assume that their dazzling “Hollywood” smile is something that just happened naturally. However, that is not the case with Kathy Ireland, the former Sports Illustrated cover girl, current business mogul and founder of kathy ireland Worldwide, a billion dollar marketing and design firm. In a Dear Doctor magazine cover story she talks openly about her dental experiences, injuries and treatment so that people worldwide can understand what may be possible for them.

For Kathy, it happened several years ago when she was playing with her husband and children in their driveway. Kathy decided that she would stand in her children's wagon and surf across their driveway. Instead, she ended up “face-planting,” as she describes it, in a freak accident that left her with a broken nose, split forehead and several broken teeth. She recalls that it sounded like a watermelon had smashed. Luckily, her husband, an emergency room physician, was on hand to care for her. Kathy is just as thankful to her cosmetic and restorative dentist who restored her trademark smile with some veneers and a dental implant. Today, the only reminder she has from this accident is a small scar on her nose that she covers with a little makeup.

You would think that this accident would be enough trauma for one person; however, Kathy describes an earlier accident where she knocked out a tooth and then later knocked it loose again. Kathy also wanted to take the time to let readers know that her dental implant experiences were “pretty easy.” She did recall, “hearing all the sounds while all of it was going on” and then added, “but I have to tell you, that after being a mom and having kids, going to the dentist...is like going to the spa!” She said that she has even fallen asleep in the dental chair.
