Whitening


Professional teeth whitening is an effective and affordable solution to discolored or stained teeth. Over-the-counter teeth whitening products simply cannot compare with the beautiful results of professional whitening. Professional teeth whitening can remove stains and discoloration caused by a number of factors, including:

  • Certain foods and drinks
  • Tobacco use
  • Medication
  • Illness
  • Fluorosis
  • The natural aging process

At Spring Lake Family Dentistry, we offer professional teeth whitening to help you achieve a brighter, whiter smile. Call our Spring Lake((616) 846-5690) dental office today to learn more about your professional teeth whitening options.

Veneers


Are you interested in a complete smile makeover? Veneers can give you a beautiful, radiant smile by correcting cosmetic dental flaws. Dental veneers are custom-made, thin shells that fit your teeth and smile. Veneers may be the right cosmetic dentistry choice if you are interested in correcting one or more of the following cosmetic dental flaws:

  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Irregularly shaped teeth
  • Misaligned teeth

Veneers are made from porcelain and other tooth-colored material to give you a natural, beautiful smile. Call Spring Lake Family Dentistry today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Elias Achey to learn whether veneers are right for you!

Bridges


Bridges are a type of tooth replacement designed to replace one missing tooth or several missing teeth in a row. Non-removable and customized to look and feel like natural teeth, dental bridges can be anchored on the two teeth adjacent to the gap or on dental implants. Bridges prevent other teeth from shifting in the mouth, which could lead to bite or jaw problems and periodontal disease, and can safeguard the integrity of existing teeth and help maintain a healthy, vibrant smile. Dr. Elias Achey and our highly trained dental staff can help you determine if a dental bridge is the best option to enhance your smile, improve your oral health, and restore the function of your mouth. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Crowns


Dental crowns, also known as dental caps, are permanent coverings to fit over a decayed, damaged, or cracked tooth. A custom crown will be created to restore the function and beautiful look of your smile. Dr. Elias Achey may recommend a dental crown in order to place a dental bridge, to complete a dental implant, or to follow-up root canal therapy. Crowns can be formed from a variety of different materials, including porcelain and resin, for a natural color and look. Dr. Elias Achey and our skilled dental team can create and place your custom crown in just two visits to Spring Lake Family Dentistry. When finished, your crown will revitalize your oral health and the beauty of your smile. Our knowledgeable staff will be happy to answer your questions about whether dental crowns are right for you

Dentures


A denture is a removable appliance used to replace all or some of your natural teeth. While full dentures replace all of your teeth, a partial denture replaces some teeth when some natural teeth remain. Spring Lake Family Dentistry will help you decide which type of denture is best for meeting your needs. Dentures are made from materials that mimic natural teeth in look, feel, and function to help restore the health, function, and beauty of your smile. In just a few weeks, our talented dentists and dental staff at Spring Lake Family Dentistry can help you restore and improve your smile through full or partial dentures. Please call our office in Spring Lake, Michigan to learn more about dentures and our other services.

Extractions


If a tooth is severely damaged, the best option may be tooth extraction. Tooth extraction can prevent further damage and infection and will get you on your way to achieving excellent dental health and restoring your beautiful, functional smile. At Spring Lake Family Dentistry, Dr. Elias Achey and our staff are committed to giving you a comfortable, pleasant experience. After your tooth extraction, your mouth will heal in just a few days. Follow Dr. Elias Achey instructions to protect against infection and guarantee a healthy mouth. The removed tooth can be replaced with one of the following:

  • A dental bridge
  • A denture
  • A dental implant restoration

We invite you to call our dental office to learn more about tooth extraction and your best options for achieving a healthy smile. Our friendly staff is committed to providing you the highest quality dental care and is always ready to answer your questions.

Fillings


Dental fillings are used to repair teeth with minor decay or fractures. Our experienced dentist, Dr. Elias Achey will remove the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth then place the filling to restore the tooth. At Spring Lake Family Dentistry, we are committed to ensuring that each dental treatment is comfortable and painless. Call our dental office in Spring Lake, Michigan today to learn more about fillings and to schedule your appointment!

Periodic Care


Periodontal (gum) disease is caused by bacteria from the plaque and tartar that accumulate on your teeth. Flossing and brushing help get rid of plaque, but plaque that is not removed can become more harmful. The bacteria can cause red, swollen, and bleeding gums, and periodontal disease may lead to damage and loss of the teeth, gum tissue, and supporting bone. In severe cases, untreated periodontal disease may contribute to several serious medical conditions, including:

  • Stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Pregnancy complications

At Spring Lake Family Dentistry, Dr. Elias Achey and our skilled dental team are dedicated to helping you avoid these risks through preventing and treating periodontal disease. Please contact our Spring Lake, Michigan dental office today if you have red, swollen, or bleeding gums. We look forward to working with you to improve your oral health!
