Dental Implant Restoration for a Perfect SmileDental Implants Traverse City MI

Dental implants look so real only your dentist will know they're not your natural teeth! Coming up through the gumline, dental implants provide both chewing stability and superior aesthetics. This is the way you should replace lost teeth and recapture your healthy smile! Unlike removable dentures, dental implants don't shift, fall out while you're speaking, or need to be removed at night. In addition, implants don't have the unnatural look of floating above your gums that can occur with bridges. Even if you have no remaining natural teeth, you can benefit from implants. They can be used to replace any number of lost teeth. After an oral surgeon places a titanium post, Dr. Paulson custom creates a restoration that blends perfectly in your mouth. Get the smile you deserve – permanently!

A Crown Restores a Damaged Tooth

Teeth wear down over time, become cracked, marred, or even more severely damaged. In short, they can no longer do the job for which they were intended. They may even reach the point where a simple filling won't completely repair the injury. In these cases, a crown will save and even add strength to your damaged tooth. We use the most advanced materials available to create crowns that not only restore function, but simulate the look of a natural tooth. Check out our CEREC™ page for information about crowns that take only a single visit!

An Affordable Alternative for Multiple Missing TeethDental Bridges Traverse City MI

If you are missing multiple teeth in one area of your mouth, you may be experiencing a change in your jaw alignment and a problem eating certain foods, and stress points can develop on your other teeth. We offer an affordable solution. Custom made with the same high-quality materials as our crowns, a bridge is anchored on both sides of the gap, filling in the empty space for a return to function, comfort, and a full smile.

‘Smile Makeovers’ in as Few as Two Visits!

You don't need braces for straighter-looking teeth. We can make the gap between your front teeth vanish, as well as remove the odd variations in color your teeth may have acquired. In fact, in as few as two visits, your discolored, chipped, cracked, or worn teeth can be painlessly corrected to appear nearly perfect. With veneers, crooked teeth can look like they’ve had years of straightening. It’s like instant orthodontics! Extremely thin, hard porcelain veneers are bonded to your teeth in a way that makes them appear uniform. We can create the smile that will get you noticed.

Whiter Teeth Equate to an Amazing Smile!Teeth Whitening Dentist Traverse City MI

In one visit we can help you regain the stunning white of your smile. Our in-office power whitening treatment makes it possible to remove years of staining and discoloration caused by food and beverages, tobacco use, or medication side effects.

You receive supplies and instructions, allowing you to safely and effectively complete the procedure at home. Results occur within 1 - 14 days.

Full-Mouth Rehabilitation

Your oral health impacts your overall well being. Gum disease has been tied to other health issues, including heart disease and stroke. A TMJ disorder can be the root cause of your headaches and shoulder pain. Chronic bad breath might indicate a more serious infection within your teeth and gums – an infection that can spread to other areas in your body. Missing, worn, and broken teeth change your bite pattern and can lead to changes in your eating habits that affect your nutritional intake. Dr. Paulson can help you address these oral health issues and many more. Ask about full-mouth rehabilitation treatment, which will help you recover a pain-free, healthy, and attractive smile.
