Let cosmetic dentistry in Redford, MI, finally give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of having.

Do you want to show off that smile, particularly around the holiday season? While you may not have been born with the perfect smile, it cosmetic dentistrydoesn’t mean you can’t get it when you turn to our Redford, MI, cosmetic dentist Dr. Laurie Mulka. Find out how cosmetic dentistry could improve the color, shape and size of your smile so that you find yourself smiling more often.

Do you want to brighten your smile?

If you have stains caused by years of drinking coffee, enjoying red wine or smoking cigarettes, then professional teeth whitening in Redford, MI, could help out your smile! This is the most effective and fastest way to remove external stains. In fact, in just one whitening session we could get some smiles several shades whiter.

Of course, if you have internal stains caused by certain medications, excessive fluoride use or direct trauma to the tooth, these stains won’t respond to professional whitening; however, they can be covered over with dental bonding or porcelain veneers (depending on the severity of the stains).

Do you have minor imperfections?

Not everyone looking to get cosmetic dentistry is dealing with serious flaws in their smile. Sometimes you just want to cover up a small chip or a minor gap between your teeth but you don’t want to go through expensive or time-consuming treatments. Now you don’t have to. We offer everything from dental bonding and tooth reshaping/contouring, as well as dental veneers for more serious imperfections that non-invasive options like bonding and recontouring won’t be able to tackle.

Bonding uses a tooth-colored resin to hide cracks, gaps, stains and chips to improve the shape and color of your teeth. Bonding is often done in conjunction with tooth reshaping, where we remove minor amounts of enamel to alter the shape or size of a tooth to better your smile’s appearance.

Do you have a missing tooth?

We make it easy to replace one or more missing teeth. If you want to get your smile back fast, then consider getting dentures. If you want a more secure way to replace one or more teeth in a row, then dental bridges could be your best option, and if you want replacement teeth with a restoration that acts just like a real tooth then dental implants will be exactly what you are looking for.

Who doesn’t love smiling? If you would like to do it more but you feel self-conscious about your teeth, then it’s time to find out how our Redford, MI, family dentist, Dr. Mulka, can help you. Call us today to schedule your consultation.
