Common Myths about Allen Park Family Cosmetic Dentistry

At Allen Park Dental Care, cosmetic dentistry is always in demand. We have learned that many patients have some misconceptions about it, and with that in mind, will use this blog post to debunk some common myths.

Myth #1: Cosmetic Dentistry is Never Necessary for a Healthy Smile

Many so-called Detroit cosmetic dental procedures are not solely cosmetic. Dearborn dental procedures such as tooth replacement prevent many potential problems such as tooth movement, bone loss and difficulty chewing and speaking.

Myth #2: A Dental Bridge is the Only Way to Replace a Missing Tooth

Dental bridges have been used for many years with success. However, dental implants are often a better choice for replacing one or more missing teeth. Dental implants feel like natural teeth, they are stronger, and they are easier to clean than dental bridges. They can also be used to anchor dentures or partial dentures.

Myth #3: At-Home Kits are as Effective for Taylor Tooth Whitening Than a Professional Dental Solution

At Allen Park Dental Care, we offer teeth whitening treatments that are typically more effective than at-home kits. At-home kits may remove surface stains, but they do not provide optimum results and can lead to uneven coloring.

Myth #4: Dental Bonding is the Best Way to Fix a Chipped Tooth.

Dental bonding can restore the shape of a tooth, but may not be the best long-term solution. If you have a damaged tooth, you may be a good candidate for porcelain veneers.

Myth #5: Dearborn Braces are the Only Way to Correct Crooked Teeth

Braces are often part of a transforming dental makeover for our Detroit teens and adults alike. However, if your teeth are only slightly crooked, lumineers can reshape your teeth and help you achieve a stunning smile. And the best thing about veneers? They offer rapid results!
