Cosmetic Dentist in Spring Lake, MI

Enhance your smile with personalized aesthetic treatments that address dental imperfections.
Joe D. Arbutante, DDS offers cosmetic dental services for patients throughout the Spring Lake area. We make it possible for our patients to have the beautiful smile they desire using a variety of modern dental techniques. We are committed to high-quality patient care, working to ensure that patients are comfortable during their procedures and delighted with the results.

Understanding Your Desire to Change Your Smile

We take the time to get to know each patient and the goals that the patient has for his or her smile. This process often involves correcting a problem with how a particular tooth, or teeth, appear. Thanks to modern dental techniques, we can help patients accomplish these goals in a painless method that produces dramatic results. Gone are the days when people have to live with a smile that they do not like or are embarrassed to show off. Even people with crooked, damaged, or stained teeth can experience the stunning transformations available when working with Dr. Arbutante.

We work with adults of all ages and commonly hear that older patients feel like it is too late to improve their smile. It is never too late to receive cosmetic dental care. Adults of all ages are delighted to find that there are many ways to restore their damaged teeth and replace missing ones. While, in years past, there may have been very few options available for replacing missing teeth, cosmetic dentistry has opened the door to solutions that are permanent, durable, and natural-looking. To find out what procedures will work best for you, call (616) 842-0090 and schedule a consultation.

The Truth About Cosmetic Dentistry

Some people hear the word cosmetic and assume that we only treat people who are looking to create a Hollywood smile. The cosmetic field of dentistry involves much more than creating a stunning appearance. It is true that most Hollywood stars use cosmetic dental procedures to improve their smile, but these procedures accomplish far more than that.

Beyond basic cosmetic procedures aimed at changing a person’s appearance, cosmetic dental procedures can restore the functionality of teeth and the self-confidence of our patients. We can help people after they damage their teeth in an accident. The American Dental Association reports that the majority of adults that damage their teeth, do so while playing sports. Thus, anyone can have a tooth break or chip at any time – regardless of how careful they are. Car wrecks, accidents at home, and workplace injuries are additional ways to damage teeth. When one does damage a tooth, it is important to visit a dentist who understands how to restore teeth in a natural way.

Spring Lake, Michigan Cosmetic Dentist

We can make restorations that appear so natural, that no one can tell that there are artificial teeth in the patient’s smile. This can be a lifesaver for people who want to live an active lifestyle and maintain the appearance they had prior to the accident. We do, however, recommend that if you damaged your tooth, you call (616) 842-0090 to schedule an appointment right away. The faster you can come into our dental office, the more options you will have for restoring the damaged tooth. This is especially true if you had a tooth fall out and are trying to save it.

Preventative Care

Cosmetic dentistry has also improved preventative care and how people are treated overall. In the past, old-fashioned metal tools were used for everything. Now, as cosmetic dentists, we look for ways to improve the patient experience and leverage technology in order to do so. By identifying ways to improve the experience of every patient, the team at Joe D. Arbutante, DDS continue to make visiting the dentist easier and more enjoyable. From painless teeth cleanings to performing major dental work in comfort, we make the patients our top priority.

Our team understands that when patients have healthy teeth, their teeth will be less likely to sustain damage or fall out. With over 70 percent of U.S. adults experiencing some form of tooth loss, preventative care is crucial to overall oral health. We recommend that patients schedule an appointment with our local Spring Lake office for teeth cleaning at least twice a year. During these regular appointments, we can remove surface stains, bacteria, and plaque that like to hide in hard-to-reach places. We can also look for signs of gum disease and cavities to treat the signs right away. Keeping teeth healthy is important because healthy teeth are strong teeth, and strong teeth are at less risk of falling out.

While we are passionate about using cosmetic dentistry as a way to create a beautiful and perfect smile, taking the time to focus on preventative care is something that we are equally passionate about. The entire staff at Joe D. Arbutante, DDS takes the time to educate patients about what they can do at home to stay in good oral health. As a result, we are able to help reduce the risk of cavities and gum disease in patients. Sometimes, taking these few extra minutes can make a positive impact on our patients’ oral health.

Spring Lake Cosmetic Dental FAQ

I don't like my teeth or my smile – what can I do?

A wide variety of options are available to improve tooth function and how your smile looks. Ask us about what options are available.
Like most services, the cost varies on the amount of time necessary and the difficulty of the procedure(s). Generally, improving a smile requires a combination of treatment options such as bleaching, reshaping gums, and using bonded materials (resin or porcelain) to improve the appearance of the teeth. A great way to start is by having a consultation with our dentist to determine how you can reach your goals.
Most dental insurance has very low total benefits per year. Most insurance companies may offset the cost for regular checkups but probably will not pay for cosmetic services. We will work to maximize your benefits and may have suggestions for alternative methods of financing so you can obtain the treatment of choice. Learn more about dental insurance and financing.

A great smile should improve your self-confidence, which can have a positive impact on the social and professional aspects of your life. Cosmetic dentistry is not just about pretty smiles though. New techniques and materials are available for back teeth as well as those seen when you smile.

This varies with each individual, depending on the need. Sometimes, you can dramatically improve your oral health and appearance in just a couple of visits. Discuss your goals and concerns, so that we can develop the best plan for your individual situation. If you start today, a new smile can be yours sooner than you think.
Our dentist will work with you in choosing the right look for you. A smile enhancement can look both dramatic and natural. We can use photographs (in a process called cosmetic imaging) and models to show you what to expect. Sometimes, we can place trial material directly on your teeth to help you visualize the change.
With good home care and regular visits, modern materials can last for many years, and possibly decades. Like most things, excellent maintenance will extend the life of your dental restorations.
