If you have missing spaces in your smile due to decay, injury or any other reason, there is hope. If your existing teeth are stained, decayed, or chipped, there is hope. If your teeth have always been misshapen, or crooked, there is hope. Cosmetic dentistry can fix all of those problems.
Doctor Miely at Mark A. Miely DDS has the ability handle the toughest cosmetic dental dilemmas. Since 1983, Doctor Miely has restored and improved smiles with advanced cosmetic dentistry.
Regardless of the problem, it is usually preferable to save your natural teeth. If this is not feasible, and you have already lost teeth, we offer several ways for you to preserve (or regain) your ability to eat, drink, speak, laugh, and smile with confidence.
If you still have your teeth, but are not satisfied with them, these might be the best answer. Stunning porcelain veneers offer a relatively cost-effective approach to cosmetic adjustments – uneven color, size, or shape. These are very thin shells bonded to the front of the teeth. They enhance unsightly, but structurally sound teeth.
A dental implant is a tooth replacement that includes an artificial tooth PLUS an artificial root (usually biocompatible titanium). With local anesthesia, the artificial root is actually inserted into the jaw bone where it integrates with the bone tissue. There are three parts to a dental implant: the artificial root, the connecting abutment, and the final crown or denture.
A dental implant is often the best restoration as it offers beauty, strength, natural function, and protection from bone recession that often occurs at the site of a missing tooth.
Most Upper Arlington residents have heard of dentures: a plate holding artificial teeth that can be removed for cleaning. These are custom-made and can contain varying numbers of teeth. Sometimes the entire set of upper and lower teeth have to be pulled and a denture created. Modern dentistry offers a myriad of custom dental implant-denture combinations to restore missing teeth.
