Achieve the Smile You’ve Always Wanted

There are a number of reasons why your teeth become stained, yellowed, or discolored over time. Common factors include aging, drinking, smoking, and even genetics. What we eat and drink can also play an important role in the dullness of our teeth. Red wine, tea, coffee, soda, and certain types of dark berries can all cause your teeth to discolor. This can negatively affect your confidence which can impact how you enjoy yourself in social situations. 

If you’re hesitant to smile because you’re concerned about the appearance of your teeth, Dr. Leitner may recommend a cosmetic dental procedure to help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.

What Is Cosmetic Dentistry?

The focus of cosmetic dentistry is on the appearance of the smile and improving the aesthetics of your teeth. Dr. Leitner offers a variety of cosmetic procedures to enhance your smile so you can rest assured we’ll find the perfect treatment that allows you to laugh and smile confidently again. 

While most people are good candidates for a cosmetic dental procedure, if your consultation reveals any underlying oral health issues, we may recommend a restorative or general dental procedure first. This way we can ensure not only a healthy smile but a beautiful one as well.

Our Cosmetic Procedures

Professional tooth whitening removes tough stains, getting your teeth several shades whiter. Dr. Leitner offers these convenient whitening treatments to make you feel good about your smile.

Deep bleaching is the most effective type of whitening procedure. This treatment eliminates difficult stains to brighten your smile. Our whitening treatments are safe and effective, so they won’t harm your smile the way over-the-counter products can.

Dr. Leitner has a Special 99-Dollar Lifetime Whitening Offer for our patients in Grand Haven. That means you get customized whitening trays and additional whitening gel as long as you continue to visit our Grand Haven office for regular dental care.

Veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain that Dr. Leitner adheres to the front surfaces of your teeth. They’re a great way to eliminate the following imperfections in your smile:

  • Crooked or uneven teeth
  • Small or poorly shaped teeth
  • Chips, cracks, or gaps
  • Severely stained teeth

Porcelain veneers are a popular cosmetic option because they make your teeth appear straighter, whiteer, and even help you achieve the perfect smile for you.

Porcelain crown

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that Dr. Leitner attaches to a damaged or broken tooth, protecting the tooth and restoring it to full function. Crowns can also improve the appearance of a poorly shaped or deeply stained tooth.

Crowns are often used in conjunction with other procedures to provide protection and support. For example, Dr. Leitner may place a crown following root canal therapy or as part of a restoration for missing teeth, such as a dental bridge or mini implants.

We offer all-porcelain crowns for your front teeth and we feature porcelain that’s fused to metal for back teeth. Both options look and feel natural, matching the shape and color of your smile.
