Grand Rapids Teeth Whitening, Dental Implants, Veneers
From whitening to contouring, Sharon L. Burocchi DDS, PLC is equipped to handle all your cosmetic dentistry needs. To help you understand your options, we've included descriptions of some of our leading services on this page.
Initial Oral Examination
We think you'll find us a little different in small, but important, ways. We will involve you-depend on you, actually-during the course of your treatment. Dental health is a team effort, with one collective goal...nurturing your teeth, mouth and gums to simply be the best they can be.
Maybe you've neglected your dental health for a bit too long. Or a past experience has left you with apprehension. Dental technology has come a long way from what you might remember. We have lasers that allow some fillings to be done without numbing and we can also treat your canker and cold sores. We now realize that a healthy mouth means a healthy body, so don't be overwhelmed. We will help you make the best decisions and put you on the path to good health with a smile. Welcome to comfortable dentistry.
Relax and feel good about your dental visits. Thank you for joining our practice.
Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.
Bonding is a process in which an enamel-like material is applied to a tooth`s surface, sculpted to an ideal shape, hardened, and then polished for an ideal smile. This procedure usually can be accomplished in a single visit.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth's function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth.
Whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth.The darker tissue of your teeth, the dentin, can become exposed as the outer layer of enamel is worn away by the effects of aging or things like caffeine and tobacco.
Invisalign'sÂ® invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners will give you the beautiful straight teeth you've always wanted. And best of all, no one can tell you're wearing them. Invisalign is great for adults and teenagers.
Simple toothaches can often be relieved by rinsing the mouth to clear it of debris and other matter. Sometimes, a toothache can be caused or aggravated by a piece of debris lodged between the tooth and another tooth. Avoid placing an aspirin between your tooth and gum to relieve pain, because the dissolving aspirin can actually harm your gum tissue.
Our goal is to help you to minimize the risk of emergency treatment. This is why we commit a generous amont of time designing a Lifetime Treatment Plan that will help you to offset the possibility of unforseen pain or tooth breakage.
