Have you ever looked at someone or seen a photograph and wished that your smile looked like that, too?

There’s just something about a nice smile. Seeing one makes you want to smile, too.

And having one can give you a boost of self-confidence. We know because we’ve seen it happen over and over again thanks to the cosmetic dentistry that we offer at Brandon Family Dental.

Whether you want whiter teeth, straighter teeth, or some other improvement, we can help at our Ortonville, MI dentist office. Just call (248) 469-0218 to schedule your consultation.

Together, we could help you create the smile of your dreams in 2018.


You Should Feel Good About Your Smile

One of the best parts of our job is watching someone’s face when they see their new smile for the first time. It’s hard to describe that feeling. In some instances, this is the first time we’ve seen that patient smile!

So many people have come to our office who feel the need to hide their teeth. They look down when they talk or speak softly so they don’t have to open their mouths very wide. Some even hold a hand in front of their mouths when they speak so other people don’t see their teeth.

When we see anyone do this, we can’t help wondering how this affects their daily lives. Are they avoiding interview for jobs they really want because they feel too embarrassed by their teeth? Are they turning down dating opportunities because they don’t want someone they find attractive to see their smile? Do they skip meeting family or friends for dinner since they don’t want to risk anyone seeing their teeth?

If any of this sounds family to you, please contact Brandon Family Dental today. Let us show you how you can transform your smile.


5 Ways To Fix A Smile

We offer a wide range of cosmetic services for our patients in and around Ortonville. The five we are mentioning below are just a handful of the things we could do to help improve your smile.


Teeth Whitening

This may be the most popular cosmetic service in the United States. It’s certainly one of the most popular services that we offer. We couldn’t count the number of patients who have come to us seeking professional teeth whitening.

Many of them tried the whitening gels or strips they got at the store. When they were disappointed with the results, they came to see us. Whether your teeth are stained from years of drinking coffee, tea, and soft drinks, eating pizza, pasta, and pie, or using tobacco, we may have just the thing to bring back your white smile.


Dental Veneers

Dental veneers can whiten your smile, too, but that’s not all they can do. Veneers can make your teeth look straighter, and they can close gaps between teeth. Veneers can repair teeth that are broken, chipped, or worn-down. You can get a single veneer or a whole set of veneers, depending on your needs.

Veneers can do for your smile what a new facade can do for an old building. A new front can give your smile a completely different look.


Gum Reshaping

Not all smile problems are issues with teeth. People who have “short” teeth or a higher than average amount of gum tissue may have a gummy smile. Keep in mind that this is somewhat subjective. The thing that matters is how you feel.

If you believe that you are showing more gum tissue than you would like when you smile, then gum reshaping may be perfect for you. This is a simple procedure to remove excess gum tissue, so your teeth can be the focus of your smile.


Tooth Contouring

Just as you may have more gum tissue than you would like, you also may have teeth that are large or misshapen in some way. Tooth contouring is how we can change the shape of one or more teeth so they more closely match the rest of your teeth.


Tooth Bonding

Bonding can do many of the same things as veneers. By applying a special resin to your teeth, we can repair chips, cracks, and breaks. We can fill spaces between teeth, too. After the resin has hardened, we can polish it so it blends in and looks like a natural part of your smile.
