Cosmetic Dentistry: You Have Options

Do you have broken, discolored, or crooked teeth? There are multiple professional and modern cosmetic options that may fit your unique dental needs. Bay City Smiles offers multiple treatments with dental veneers and teeth whitening. These options are custom-designed for each patient’s comfort and conform to existing teeth.

Veneer Treatments

Dental veneers are utilized for many different types of tooth conditions. They may be used to repair broken or chipped teeth, and can cover up tooth stains and tooth discoloration. Veneers can also be used to close gaps between teeth or repair the appearance of crooked and misaligned teeth. Learn more about each dental veneer type below, and see which one is right for you and your tooth condition.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers provide patients with long-lasting, natural-looking results. For this treatment, translucent material is shaped to the tooth. These veneers are resistant to stains and provide durability, resulting in a natural look that conforms to existing teeth. Porcelain veneers take from 2 to 3 visits to complete, and are completely ready to bond to teeth in several weeks.


Lumineers require little tooth preparation and are able to replicate the appearance of natural tooth enamel. Durable and strong, they are resistant to wear and tear and may last up to 20 years with the proper dental care. Because they are made up of ultra-thin material, lumineers do not require a tooth reduction, unlike other treatments.

Resin Veneers

These veneers are made up of a biocomposite material that is sculpted around teeth. Like porcelain veneers, resin veneers conform directly to teeth. However, resin veneers are a less permanent option than porcelain veneers or lumineers.

Teeth Whitening Treatments


Professional teeth whitening in-office is a great option that is designed with comfort in mind. Following a consultation with Dr. Daryle J. Mahnke & Associates, patients are treated in our Bay City, Michigan office. This treatment provides brilliant results with minimal sensitivity to teeth and gums.


For maximum conveniance and simplicity, take-home options can’t be beat. For the take-home option, patients are provided with custom-fit whitening trays. Trays may be worn during the day or at night over the course of a number of weeks. Over time, stains and discolored teeth whiten, resulting in a brilliant new smile.
