Dental restoration services

Repairing and restoring your teeth is critical to a healthy, beautiful smile

When you damage your teeth, things can go from bad to worse very quickly. That’s why it’s important to call Great Lakes Family Dental Group in Livonia if you suspect your teeth may be injured, decayed, or damaged.

By contacting us in the early stages, we can often repair and restore your teeth -- giving you a smile that’s good as new.

At Great Lakes Family Dental Group in Livonia, we offer a wide range of dental restoration services to make this an easy, positive process:

  • Fillings: Do you know what a cavity is? It’s a tiny hole in your tooth’s enamel, and we’re able to fix it by removing the decayed section and replacing it with a filling -- made from metal, acrylic or porcelain.
  • Crowns: Teeth that already contain several fillings -- or teeth that are very decayed -- may need a crown. Made from gold, porcelain fused to metal, or pure white porcelain, crowns cover your existing tooth and protect it from further harm.
  • Inlays: Damage to the biting surface of your teeth can be fixed with an inlay -- a special dental restoration that is made from porcelain. It’s similar to a filling, and is neatly cemented in place.
  • Onlays: You may need an onlay if you require a more substantial reconstruction of your tooth. It’s similar to an inlay, except it covers one or more cusps. An onlay can be a better solution than a crown in some cases, because more of the tooth structure is maintained.
  • Dental Bridges: If you need to have a tooth extracted, we can often replace it with an artificial tooth that connects to the two surrounding teeth. It’s called a bridge, and it gives you the appearance of having a real tooth.
