Porcelain Veneers from Dr. Michael Michel in Topeka, KS

April 10, 2015

92589293Spring has sprung and thoughts turn to love. If you’d love to enhance your smile, then Dr. Michael Michel at Michel Dental in Topeka, KS, has the right cosmetic dentistry treatment for you. With porcelain veneers, Dr. Michel can correct the flaws in your smile and give you one to fall in love with.

If you tend to cover your mouth every time you smile or laugh, then you should really consider permanently covering your smile with porcelain veneers. Made of thin layers of dental porcelain, veneers are adhesively bonded to the front side of the teeth in your smile zone. They can correct a number of smile imperfections, including:

  • Teeth with chips
  • Teeth that are slightly cracked
  • Somewhat misaligned teeth
  • Stained or discolored teeth that have not responded to whitening
  • Teeth with gaps in between them
  • Uneven teeth
  • Teeth that are unusually worn

The Porcelain Veneer Process

Once Dr. Michel determines that you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers, then you are probably only two appointments away from having a smile that is certain to put a spring in your step. At your first visit, you and Dr. Michel will discuss your smile goals while always keeping in mind that you want your veneers to be appropriate for your mouth, your face and even your complexion. A treatment plan will be devised, so you can see what your smile will look like when your veneers are placed.

Then, Dr. Michel will prepare your teeth and take a molded impression, which is sent to our reliable dental lab. While your permanent veneers are being fabricated, you’ll wear temporaries to protect your teeth. When your custom veneers arrive, you’ll return to our office for Dr. Michel to cement them on to your teeth. Each will be trimmed and polished as needed for a perfect fit.

Create a Sensation Smile in Time for Summer

June 8, 2012

Summer is a time for family vacations, family reunions, and other major events, like weddings and get-togethers with friends. Because events like these often involve lots of pictures, if you’re embarrassed of your teeth, you might be dreading this summer more than you have to. All of which is why Dr. Michael Michel offers teeth whitening at his Topeka dental office.

Dazzling Results with Two Convenient Options

To help patients from Topeka and beyond achieve the whiter smile they’ve dreamed of, Dr. Michel offers two convenient options for patients to take advantage of—in-office and take-home whitening. Both can yield dramatically brighter results, but if you’re looking for an immediately whiter smile, you may want to consider in-office teeth whitening. After about one hour, in-office teeth whitening can have your teeth looking close to 10 times whiter than they did when you came in. In some cases, patients may experience some sensitivity afterwards, but if you want fast results, in-office teeth whitening may be for you.

For patients who aren’t in a hurry, though, or have experienced sensitivity in the past, why not talk to us about our take-home whitening option. With take-home teeth whitening, you can use custom-made bleaching trays and professional bleaching gel to help you achieve your goal in in a matter of days.

Are You Ready To Turn Your Smile Around?

If you’re ready to transform your smile with professional teeth whitening, call Dr. Michel’s Topeka office today. Dr. Michel serves patients from Emporia, Lawrence, Manhattan, and surrounding areas.

 

Save Your Smile with Tooth-Colored Fillings from Michel Dental

April 20, 2012

If you’ve been told you need a filling, you may be worried about marring your smile with dark-colored amalgam fillings. At Michel Dental, we don’t want our patients to worry. That’s why we offer tooth-colored fillings. Also called composites, tooth-colored fillings are a cosmetic twist on restorative dentistry.

Why are tooth-colored fillings superior to their amalgam counterparts? For a couple of reasons.

First, because tooth-colored fillings are made of a combination of plastics, they can be shaded to exactly match your natural smile. That way, only you and Dr. Michel will ever have to know about your fillings.

Second, tooth-colored filling supports your remaining tooth structure. Amalgam fillings, by contrast, merely cover the tooth without supporting it. Amalgams are also temperature sensitive and can crack or change shape over time, possibly allowing for bacterial reinvasion later on.

Tooth-colored fillings, on the other hand, won’t change shape. Instead, they’ll provide long-lasting, conservative protection that helps you get the most out of your natural teeth and your natural smile.

Have you recently been told you need fillings and want to learn more about how tooth-colored fillings work? Michel Dental in Topeka would be happy to answer your questions. Give us a call today to set up an appointment. Dr. Michel and our entire time want to give you the strong, confident smile you deserve.
