Achieve a Flawless Smile with Porcelain Veneers!

186932212For many people, having a beautiful, flawless smile is something to strive for. Having an impeccable smile is often times a smile of youthfulness and vitality, and having a perfect smile can leave a memorable first impression. If you are not confident in your smile, it can not only affect the way you view yourself, but also the way you interact with the people around you, like your family and friends. For those who want a perfect smile, thinking that they will not be able to accomplish that is a thing of the past, as Dr. Michael Michel is able to offer porcelain veneers to his patients!

Porcelain veneers are wonderful for those who wish to completely transform their smiles in a little amount of time. Being able to cover up many of your smile’s imperfections, porcelain veneers can not only improve your smile’s overall aesthetic, but also improve the way you view yourself. If your smile is gapped, misaligned, stained, chipped, or cracked, porcelain veneers can cover all of that up, only showing the faultless smile you have always wanted.

The first step to accomplishing your dream smile is setting up a consultation with Dr. Michel. He will be able to calculate the current condition of your smile, determining if porcelain veneers are a good option for you. He will be able to develop a treatment plan customized just for you, and you will also be able to ask him any questions or concerns you have, as we want you to be as well-informed as possible. We will make impressions of your smile, making sure your custom made veneers are personalized to you and will be cohesive with your facial features. Those impressions are sent to a dental lab to be made, and Dr. Michel will prepare your natural tooth by removing a small bit of enamel. When your veneers are ready, they will be placed in your prepared tooth, and made permanent with dental resin cement. At the end of the procedure, you are left with a flawless smile! If you would like Dr. Michel’s help in having a beautiful smile using porcelain veneers, contact our office today!

At Michel Dental, we offer quality dental care for a distinctive smile. Our Topeka dental office serves patients from Emporia, Lawrence, Manhattan, and surrounding areas. Call us today to schedule your appointment.

Have A Seamless Smile with Tooth-Colored Fillings

137110504Whenever someone receives any sort of dental treatment, they tend to like for their results to look as natural as possible. Though some would like to opt for a drastic change in their appearance, there are some who simply wish to look like improved, natural versions of themselves. The same concept can be applied when talking about fillings. Having metal, also known as amalgam, fillings can give your smile an unpleasant aesthetic, making your dental work obvious. Though you may think nothing can be done regarding your metal fillings, Dr. Michael Michel is able to give his patients the natural appearance to their smile that they have been wanting by offering tooth-colored fillings at his Topeka, KS dental office.

Aside from being displeasing to the eye, metal fillings are also unhealthy to your body. Metal fillings contain mercury, a highly toxic element. When left to sit in your smile, the toxins have the potential to enter your blood stream, affecting other areas of your body. Tooth-colored fillings are not only better for your smile, but for your overall health as well.

One of the great things about tooth-colored fillings is the fact that more of your natural tooth structure is able to be saved than with metal fillings. This form of conservative dentistry gives us the ability to not only make your smile look more natural, but it will actually be more natural. Being able to be sturdy against temperature change and breakage, tooth-colored fillings are much stronger than traditional metal fillings. When making your filling, we will be able to make it to where it exactly matches the color of your natural smile, making it blend it seamlessly. If you would like to make your smile look and feel more natural with tooth-colored fillings and would like the help of Dr. Michel, contact our office today!

At Michel Dental, we offer quality dental care for a distinctive smile. Our Topeka dental office serves patients from Emporia, Lawrence, Manhattan, and surrounding areas. Call us today to schedule your appointment.

Cosmetic Bonding Can Quickly Improve Smiles in Topeka

Do you have one or a few teeth that just don’t look as great as the rest of your smile?  Do you want to correct these issues but don’t want to go through the hassle and expense of porcelain veneers? If a few imperfections such as chips or other flaws mar your smile, at Michel Dental we can correct these issues with cosmetic bonding.

Cosmetic bonding is a simple, one-appointment cosmetic dentistry procedure that can quickly correct small imperfections in your smile. Dr. Michel will apply composite resin to your tooth to cover the imperfection. The resin is carefully color matched to blend in with the rest of your smile. Then he’ll use a special light to cure and harden the resin, and polish it to complete your restoration. You’ll leave with a beautiful smile because your flaws will be corrected in only one visit to our office.

Unfortunately, the bonded material will not stain over time in the same way as your natural teeth, so you may need teeth whitening in the future to keep your smile looking great. Still, cosmetic bonding is a great choice if you have some minor smile flaws you’d like to be quickly corrected. Please give us a call to learn more or to schedule your appointment.

Do you find yourself wishing for a straighter smile? Are you also an adult and don’t want the metallic look of braces to interfere with your professional image? If so, you could be a good candidate for Invisalign from Michel Dental.

Invisalign is a clear braces solution that gradually straightens your teeth using a series of clear aligner trays.

Also, Invisalign has no metal parts, so there’s nothing to irritate your mouth.

Your aligners are removable, so you can eat and clean your teeth without any instructions. It also gives you the freedom to take them out for special occasions or photographs. This is a great way to make straightening your smile fit seamlessly into your busy, adult life.

If you’re disappointed with your smile, Invisalign is a great way to straighten your teeth without letting everyone know you’re wearing braces.

Repairing Teeth with Inlays and Onlays

Did you know that you have another alternative to a crown for repairing large fillings? At Michel Dental, we can also restore your teeth using inlays and onlays. These are more conservative choices to help repair your teeth, as they retain more of your natural tooth structure.

This tooth restoration method is in between a filling and a crown. Inlays and onlays attach to your tooth in much the same way as a filling, but are milled porcelain like a crown. On the top of your teeth are bumps known as cusps. Inlays go in between cusps, while onlays fit over them.

No matter which one is right for your teeth, inlays and onlays are great choices because they allow you to retain more of your natural tooth structure. The more of your tooth you can keep, the healthier your smile is. You’ll have a natural-looking, fully restored tooth that will function like normal once again.

Inlays and onlays can be another great option to repair your smile. If you have a large cavity or old filling that needs repairing, this can be a great alternative to a crown. Since this option isn’t right for everyone, give us a call today to see if this cosmetic restorative dentistry technique can work for your smile.

At Michel Dental, we offer quality dental care for a distinctive smile. Our Topeka dental office serves patients from Emporia, Lawrence, Manhattan, and surrounding areas. Call us today to schedule your appointment.
