Ensure Your Smile Lasts A Lifetime

For our dental team at Lumon Dental, there is nothing more important than the health and functionality of your smile. Not only does improved oral health promote a more enriching, comfortable life, but it also provides a strong foundation for any cosmetic treatments. To help us promote healthy teeth, gums, and jaws, we are proud to offer comprehensive general and family dentistry in Royal Oak, Michigan. General dentistry is the branch of dentistry that focuses on taking care of your overall oral health. We offer our patients dental cleanings, exams, restorations, and more to ensure your smile lasts a lifetime.

We treat patients of all ages, including children and seniors, and we strive to offer a comfortable, relaxing dental experience each and every time you visit our office. To truly benefit from general dentistry, we encourage you to make visiting the dentist a part of your yearly routine; we suggest coming in to see us once every six months. If it has been some time since your last appointment, we invite you to contact one of our kind dentists today. We look forward to working with you and your family as we start you on the road to better oral health!

Dental Cleaning & Exams

A healthy smile begins as a clean smile, and our dentists offer comprehensive dental cleanings and dental exams. Dental cleanings and exams are generally performed by one of our dental hygienists, who work carefully to:
  • Clean, dry, and sanitize each tooth
  • Check each tooth for signs of decay or disease
  • Examine existing restorations for any needed repairs
  • Apply topical fluoride
  • Take a series of dental X-rays
  • Review your dental history and questions
  • Perform an oral cancer screening

Dental exams and teeth cleanings in Royal Oak are ideal for catching tooth decay before it becomes serious while helping you to feel confident in your dental healthcare decisions. We will not only suggest treatments, but also do our best to explain why we feel they are necessary and all the ways they can benefit your smile. At Great Lakes Dentistry, we are pleased to offer dental cleanings and exams to patients of all ages, including children and seniors. 

Dental Fillings

Tooth decay and damage commonly occur to your tooth enamel, the hard, outer portion of your tooth. If left untreated, decay can continue to eat away at your enamel and reach the inner portion of your tooth, eventually causing a painful infection and tooth loss. At Lumon Dental, we offer dental fillings to restore the strength and integrity of your tooth structure. Dental fillings are dental restorations that are directly molded onto the surface of teeth. We are pleased to offer white fillings in Royal Oak, Michigan, to beautifully restore your smile.

White fillings, also known as tooth-colored or composite fillings, are made from a durable form of plastic. White fillings are ideal for our patients who are looking to maintain an attractive aesthetic as well as a strong restoration. Each layer is sculpted to perfectly fit your tooth’s natural grooves and curves before being allowed to harden. There are many benefits to using white fillings when compared to other types of dental fillings and we would love to share these benefits with your family. 



Dentures are a great way to replace most or all of your teeth after they have fallen out or have been removed. A simple, non-invasive treatment method, there are many advantages to using dentures over other forms of tooth replacement. Dentures are affordable, removable, and do not require major surgery to complete. They are also very versatile. Our dentists at Great Lakes Dentistry offer many forms of dentures in Royal Oak, Michigan based on your individual needs and goals, including:
  • Full dentures – Shaped like a horseshoe and resting completely on your gums, full dentures are used to replace all of the teeth in your lower or upper dental arches, or both. Full dentures are made from prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-colored base.
  • Partial dentures – Unlike full dentures, partial dentures replace only some of your smile and require natural teeth to remain. Along with a base, partial dentures often use a thin, metal framework to support itself.
  • Implant dentures – Implant dentures are exceptionally secure and stable. Placed on small metal posts placed in your jaw, implant dentures are great for any form of tooth loss you may have experienced.

We will work closely together with you to determine which type of dentures will restore your smile most effectively.
