Teeth whitening, white crowns, and porcelain veneers are just part of cosmetic dental services at Michel Dental, the quality cosmetic dentist in Silver Lake, KS. Dr. Michael E. Michel creates outstanding, healthy and lasting smiles for patients of all ages.

You’ve taken great care of your teeth and gums. Exams, cleanings, preventing big problems by addressing small ones–you are on top of your dental health. Still, though, you aren’t satisfied with how your smile looks, and frankly, your self-image is suffering.

It’s time to consult Silver Lake cosmetic dentist, Michael E. Michel DDS. Wonderfully well-versed and skilled in general and restorative dentistry, Dr. Michel and his staff also offer state-of-the-art cosmetic dentistry to individuals in the Silver Lake and Topeka area. They understand that a lasting smile needs to be an attractive smile. It’s an important part of your whole-mouth health and well-being.

Cosmetic dentistry in Silver Lakes gives you several aesthetic options.

When your mouth is healthy, free of cavities, gum disease and extensive restorations, your Silver Lake cosmetic dentist can present you with many ways to create the smile of your dreams. Dr. Michel will do a complete exam and some imaging before presenting you with the smile makeover plan that’s right for your whole-mouth health, well-being and budget.

For instance, if your teeth have a stained, yellowed appearance, professional Silver Lake teeth whitening can brighten your smile by several shades. Whether with custom-fitted, gel-filled trays at home or with in-office concentrated hydrogen peroxide, teeth whitening transforms smiles changed by:

  • aging
  • smoking
  • acidic foods
  • densely colored beverages such as black tea, cola and coffee
  • some medications
  • root canal therapy

Inoffice whitening protects gums and other soft tissues from sensitivity and takes only about an hour. Patients go home with a touch-up kit for results that last 1 to 2 years.

Porcelain veneers are a frequent stand-alone cosmetic treatment or may be added to teeth whitening. Veneers or dental laminates are thin, but durable, shells of translucent porcelain. Individually crafted according to dental impressions, veneers cover the front side of teeth that have:

  • chips or fractures
  • stains
  • gaps, crowding or misalignment problems
  • odd shapes or sizes

Dr. Michel prepares the tooth surface by removing a half-millimeter of enamel. When the veneers are ready, he glues them to the teeth, adjusting bite and shape. He may use cosmetic bonding with composite resin to achieve a final, smooth and complete look that lasts with good hygiene.

Other cosmetic-restorative services are available.

Combining aesthetic and restoration are Michel Dental services such as Invisalign® clear braces for a variety of orthodontic issues in older teens and adults who want a straight smile without obvious brackets and wires. Tooth-colored fillings and white crowns restore teeth compromised by injury or decay for a just-like-new appearance. Fixed bridgework fills in gaps left by missing teeth, improving facial structure, speaking and eating.

Transform Your Smile with Professional Teeth Whitening from Michel Dental

August 12, 2011

Teeth discoloration happens for a variety of reasons. Often, it has to do with the foods and drinks you consume, but aging can be another factor, as can smoking and certain medication likes tetracycline.

But even if discoloration is a fact of life, you don’t have to live with it. Michel Dental offers professional teeth whitening services to help patients add sparkle to their smile and improve self-confidence. Patients can even decide whether they would prefer in-office or at-home teeth whitening.

In-Office and At-Home Options

With in-office teeth whitening, Dr. Michel can help you have a smile that’s as much as eight shades brighter, and in just one short visit to our office.

With at-home whitening, you can have professional results without even leaving your home. All you need are a pair of custom made whitening trays and a supply of whitening gel. It will take between one to two weeks for the most dramatic results to appear, but you should notice a change in your smile after just a few days.

For longer-lasting results, patients should try combining in-office whitening with sporadic at-home whitening treatments. By combining the two, there’s almost no limit to how long you can enjoy your dazzling new smile.

If you’d like to talk to Dr. Michel about professional teeth whitening and how it works, contact our Topeka office to schedule a consultation appointment. We serve patients from Emporia, Lawrence, Manhattan, and surrounding areas.
