Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry
Recapture your smile's beauty and function.
Shelby Township Cosmetic Dentistry
Your cosmetic dentist, Dr. Fredal, places porcelain veneers by first taking an impression of your teeth and discussing the style you would like. Next, the impression is sent to our lab where your veneers are created. While the veneers are being placed on your teeth, we can adjust the size, shade, and fit to meet your needs. The veneers are bonded to each tooth and the cement hardened with a visible light beam. Your new smile is beautiful, durable, and sure to fill you with confidence.
A common treatment that is coupled with bonding is contouring. This involves the reshaping of your gum line to increase or even out the size of your teeth. This is necessary for those who have excessive gum tissue that needs to be removed or reshaped. This cosmetic service is performed with anesthesia and/or sedation dentistry for greater comfort.
Invisalign® is a discreet, removable, clear aligning system designed to straighten your smile without any metal or wires. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign® can be removed to brush, floss, eat, or drink – with a minimal impact on your everyday life.
How Does Invisalign® Work?
The process starts with Dr. Fredal using 3D iTero computer technology to scan your mouth. Using this technology, he is able to show you the end result of Invisalign® and design the series of aligners you will need. Each set of aligners is worn for around two weeks and then replaced with a new set. Your teeth are gradually moved into the desired position without too much discomfort.
The average treatment time is around 9-15 months and you will visit Dr. Fredal every six weeks for a checkup. There are so many advantages to Invisalign® and the results are wonderful.
Dr. Fredal brightens your smile by using a special gel and applying it to your teeth. This whitening gel is effective in one visit and doesn’t damage your tooth enamel. Your new whiter smile will no doubt boost your confidence and leave you feeling great.
No one likes going to the dentist but the staff at Dr. Fredal's office makes the experience as quick and pleasant as possible. I highly recommend the professionalism and friendliness of the whole office.

Restorative Treatments by Dr. Thomas M. Fredal
When removing a tooth, our caring team ensures the area around the tooth is numbed and cleaned. After the tooth is prepared, it is carefully extracted and the remaining area is kept clean.
Your restorative and cosmetic dentist may recommend replacing the missing tooth with a dental implant or bridge.
At Legacy Dental Professionals, we use i-CAT software to plan dental implants. Your dentist uses the software to create a 3-D image of your tooth and plan where the implant should go. He then uses this guide to accurately and precisely to place the implant.
TMJ disorders (TMD) often occur due to trauma, grinding of the teeth, or genetics. The discomfort caused can be vast but there are treatments to help. Dr. Fredal can provide medication, surgery recommendations, and special appliances to help with this complex issue. Don’t suffer in silence! If you are experiencing these symptoms, ask your dentist about TMD.
