Is a Smile Rejuvenation Right for You?

Ever wish you could turn back the hands of time or find that evasive fountain of youth? Now you can, with a smile rejuvenation! Exactly as it sounds, a smile rejuvenation utilizes one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures to bring your smile back to life. A smile is usually the first thing people notice about each other. Something as simple as a smile can drastically boost a person’s confidence in both their personal and professional lives. But everyday wear-and-tear takes a toll on our smiles, along with subconscious habits like clenching or grinding our teeth, erosion of tooth enamel and eating foods or drinking beverages that stain our teeth.

Dental treatments have advanced alongside technology. In fact, in as little as two weeks, our cosmetic dentists in the Birmingham area who specialize in smile rejuvenation can combine conservative and diverse cosmetic treatments to help reverse the signs of aging in your smile. Today, our cosmetic dentists discuss some of the various treatments used in smile rejuvenation.

Dental crowns

Dental crowns are also called “caps” and are durable, long-lasting protectants for teeth that perhaps have been damaged by an injury or teeth-grinding. The natural tooth is covered by a customized crown, restoring the tooth to its original appearance and functionality.

Porcelain veneers

Porcelain ceramic veneers are thin, durable “shells” that adhere to the front surface of teeth. They are an excellent option for restoring the appearance of multiple teeth at once.

Dental bonding

Dental bonding restores damaged and discolored teeth to their natural appearance and strength. Our cosmetic dentists in Royal Oak can rebuild a tooth’s structure using the same durable composite resin material that is used to fill cavities. This is a great option when only one or two teeth need to be restored.

Dental implants

Dental implants are a multi-part solution to replace a single lost tooth or multiple teeth. The process involves inserting a titanium post into the area of the jawbone where the natural tooth is missing. The post eventually fuses into the jawbone and becomes the root for a dental crown that is created to look exactly like the surrounding natural teeth in color, shape and size.


Our dentists may suggest straightening your teeth as part of your smile rejuvenation. When thinking of orthodontics, most people think only of traditional, often-uncomfortable metal braces. But technology has come a long way! Invisalign, for instance, is a practically invisible treatment option that corrects a smile in a fraction of the time as traditional braces.

Gum contouring

Sometimes, too much periodontal tissue covers pearly whites or an uneven gum line distracts from an otherwise beautiful smile. Minimally-invasive gum contouring with our Royal Oak dentists who specialize in smile rejuvenation can help reveal more of your pearly whites and straighten your gum line for a rejuvenated smile.

Tooth reshaping

Just as it sounds, tooth reshaping is a quick and painless cosmetic dentistry procedure that repairs a tooth that is chipped, uneven, misaligned or cracked. The procedure involves scraping off part of the existing tooth’s enamel. Our cosmetic dentist in the Birmingham area will shape the tooth using a bonding resin that attaches to your teeth and hardens on them.

Teeth whitening

It’s no surprise that teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments. Teeth can get dingy over time, and every adult can only benefit from a brighter, whiter smile. Forget the store-bought whitening treatments; a professional cosmetic dentist uses a far more powerful whitening gel than is carried in stores, and a professional dental team will protect your gums from burning during the process, unlike a store-bought treatment.
