Cosmetic Dentistry In St. Joseph and Berrien Springs

Berrien Dental Cosmetic Dentistry Patient MichellePast Research Tells Us, To Change Your First Impression, Look At Your Smile

With cosmetic dental work, we will help your smile illuminate the room if you enter. By way of various procedures, we’ll create that gorgeous smile of which you have been dreaming.

Natural-looking solutions like advanced metal-free crowns, porcelain veneers, bridges, and inlays/onlays look, feel and function just like your own teeth. And, do you know that, cosmetic dentistry could very well get rid of wrinkles and lines around your cheeks, mouth area and the rest of your face… without having plastic surgery?

Drs. Balsis and Christy’s experience and expertise in esthetic and health and functional restorative dental care is well recognized in the St. Joseph and Berrien Springs area.

As soon as we are in tune with your personal needs and goals, we factor in your facial shape, the features of your nose, and the hues and chroma of your eyes. However, it is the shape and contour of your lips that will frame your new smile and, as such, are the face’s primary guideposts. Our cosmetic team will also measure an esthetic list of constructs such as the visual weight of your eyes and nose in relation to your other facial dimensions.

We can make over your smile to make you look more youthful, make your smile whiter and more sparkly, reduce lines and wrinkles around your mouth, instantly straighten crowded or crooked teeth, and, finally, take your sex appeal to the next level.

Remember, however, Dr. Balsis, Dr. Christy and the smile team aren’t just concentrating on your good looks. Our first priority is to make your smile healthy, sound, and in occlusal harmony so that you can enjoy good health, good food and a good laugh now and then.
