Our Cosmetic Services
Here’s a list of the remarkable cosmetic dentistry treatments available at our dental office in Waterford, MI.
We proudly use Invisalign aligners as a more discreet, convenient alternative to traditional metal braces. Each tray is customized to fit your unique bite, and best of all, they’re practically invisible! Invisalign is completely removable for maximum comfort, allowing you to eat all of your favorite foods.
Cosmetic bonding, also known as dental bonding, is often the next, best step when tooth whitening fails to brighten your teeth or remove stubborn stains. It’s an affordable and safe way to eliminate gaps in your teeth, hide stains, or fix a chipped tooth. The material used feels like your natural teeth and offers immediate results.
For patients with deeply stained or misshapen teeth, we can use porcelain veneers to help you achieve your ideal smile. They’re custom-crafted to resemble healthy, white tooth enamel and seamlessly blend in with your natural smile. When bonded to the teeth, veneers are highly resistant to staining and discoloration.

Frequently Asked Questions
Coverage of cosmetic dentistry treatments varies by provider. They’re more likely to cover procedures that will improve not only the aesthetic aspect of your teeth but also their functionality. Cosmetic treatments that have a higher chance of being covered by dental insurance include crowns, composite fillings, and sometimes veneers and bonding.
However, if there is no structural damage to your smile and you choose to obtain teeth whitening or veneers simply to remove discoloration, your insurance provider may cover a small amount of the treatment.
Cosmetic dentistry is an attractive way to fix crooked teeth. Thanks to Invisalign, we can straighten your smile quickly without anyone knowing you’re even wearing them. Veneers can also be used to make your teeth appear straighter. These thin porcelain shells are placed over your crooked or gapped smile, delivering flawless results.
When choosing a cosmetic treatment, Dr. Sheehan will discuss each procedure with you in detail. Invisalign can permanently straighten teeth, while veneers will only make them appear straighter.
Our goal is to make sure your cosmetic treatments are as pain-free as possible. To do this, we’ll provide you with an anesthetic or sedation dentistry if necessary. These will numb the area around the teeth being worked on and can also help you feel relaxed during your visit.
Patients may experience slight discomfort while they’re adjusting to their Invisalign clear aligners, but we’ll do our best to eliminate uncomfortable sensations as quickly and efficiently as possible.
