It’s September, and that means fall is just around the corner! Here at Brandon Family Dental, we’re getting excited to welcome the beautiful change of colors in nature, cooler temperatures (great for running and being outside – some of our favorite things to do!), and the start of fall events around town, like SeptemberFest. Another thing we enjoy about this time of year is helping our patients make beautiful changes to their smiles. Today, Ortonville MI cosmetic dentist Dr. Harrell and our entire staff want to share 3 quick and painless cosmetic dentistry treatments to make your smile bright for the upcoming season and beyond.

Professional Teeth Whitening in Brandon, MI

If you’ve ever used over-the-counter whitening products, you might not think of teeth whitening as a quick solution. That’s because those products don’t give you quick results, or lasting results. They’re made to target surface stains only, but any deeper staining from regular coffee drinking or just aging, for example, can hardly be touched.

Our professional whitening treatments, on the other hand, can offer you shades’ whiter results in as little as one visit to our office! We have in-house KöR deep bleaching, which, after just an hour or so here, can whiten your teeth by as many as 16 shades – or more! And this incredible whitening treatment is unlike any other because its results can last for years. It’s considered by many dentists (and patients) to be the best teeth whitening, and it can even blast away staining from tetracycline and tobacco, too. You’ll be shocked at how bright your teeth become, yet they’ll still look natural.

If you’d like to see results in a few days to a couple weeks, you might try Zoom! NiteWhite or Zoom! DayWhite take-home whitening treatments. You’ll still get whiter teeth but at your convenience. This is great for an upcoming event that you want to look your best at. Check out some Zoom! results here.

Either option can make your smile brighter and even make you look younger as you erase years of stains from your teeth! And you won’t have the level of tooth or gum sensitivity like you would with drugstore whitening products.

Cosmetic Bonding

Is that cracked, chipped, or discolored tooth bothering you? What about a dent on your tooth that ruins its smooth surface? Maybe you didn’t realize you could do anything about it, especially nothing that would be inexpensive, quick, AND pain-free! Here at Brandon Family Dental, Dr. Harrell can repair minor damages and imperfections to your teeth with cosmetic bonding.

Bonding material is made from the same material as tooth-colored fillings, so like the fillings, we match it to your natural tooth color for a seamless smile. We apply the resin to your problem area, shape it and smooth it for a natural look, and then harden it with a special light. We’ll finish it off by polishing it for a beautiful shine! The material is so strong that it can give you years of a perfect smile.

The best part about bonding is that it’s one of the most affordable cosmetic treatments, and one of the quickest. Depending on your issue, it can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour or so to fix your tooth. Absolutely no pain or discomfort required!

Teeth Contouring

If you have a decent looking smile but have one or a couple of teeth that are too long, they might be the only thing getting in the way of your smile being beautiful. We have a great way to quickly even out your smile and make those long teeth the same length as their neighbors.

Teeth contouring is a simple process that Dr. Harrell uses to “file” down your enamel (the outer surface of your teeth) to even them out. Because your enamel is strong and protective, you won’t feel a thing. After one fast appointment, you’ll be amazed to look in the mirror and see a whole new smile awaiting you! Even though this is a subtle change, its effects are noticeable. Don’t be surprised if you get compliments or questions from friends or family who wondered what you did to improve your grin!
