Porcelain Veneers Rochester MI
By Dr. Terry Buday and Dr. David Tapani in Rochester Michigan
There’s no reason to put up with gaps in your teeth or with teeth that are stained, discolored, badly shaped, chipped, or crooked. Today, a veneer placed on top of your teeth can correct nature’s mistake or the results of an injury and help you have a beautiful smile. Veneers are a highly popular solution among dental patients because of their life-like tooth appearance.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials (such as porcelain) designed to cover the front side of your teeth. To prepare for veneers, your doctor will create a unique model of your teeth. This model is sent to the dental technician to create your veneers. Before placing your new veneer, your doctor will remove a small amount of your tooth to make room for the veneer.
When placed, you’ll be pleased to see that veneers look like your natural teeth and even resist staining. Though veneers are stain resistant, your doctor may recommend that you avoid coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco to maintain the beauty of your veneer.
Invisalign® Rochester Michigan
By Dr. Terry Buday and Dr. David Tapani – Contemporary Smiles – Rochester, MI
Dr. Terry Buday and Dr. David Tapani are Certified Invisalign® Providers.
Consider Invisalign® to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted — without braces. A complimentary consultation with Contemporary Smiles in Rochester Michigan can determine if Invisalign is right for you.
What is it?
Invisalign® uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So, you can smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign is made with 3-D computer imaging technology and has been proven effective. More than 70% of orthodontists in the US and Canada are certified to treat with Invisalign® .
Why would I want it?
Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also comfortable, with no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. And no metal and wires usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments. Invisalign® also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
How does it work?
You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to the final position Dr. Terry Buday or Dr. David Tapani has prescribed. You’ll visit Contemporary Smiles in Rochester Michigan about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.

Dental Implants Rochester MI
Dr. Terry Buday and Dr. David Tapani in Rochester Michigan
If you have suffered from tooth loss, Contemporary Smiles in Rochester Michigan may recommend dental implants to replace your teeth and restore your smile. Dental implants are fixed replacements of teeth that are permanent, secure options. This is a treatment choice that can be used to replace one or many missing teeth and eliminate any embarrassment of teeth sliding around or falling out. Unlike removable dentures, dental implants are secured in place by being surgically implanted in the jawbone. The small artificial tooth root is made of biocompatible material, allowing the bone tissues to bond with it for a more stable restoration. After a period of healing, our dentist attaches the implant restoration on top of the implant post. Based on how many and which teeth are missing, we may recommend a dental crown, a bridge, a partial denture, or a complete denture as your implant restoration.
Patients have improved appearance, improved comfort, improved self-esteem, and improved speech when choosing implants. Dental implants are designed to look, function, and feel like your natural teeth, so no one will even be able to tell that you were missing teeth!
