What makes you smile? The sound of your children laughing. The sight of your family dog greeting you when you come home. How about your smile itself?
If your smile doesn’t make you happy, then it may be time to ask about cosmetic dentistry. We offer a range of services at our dentist office in Holly, MI.
Cosmetic dentistry can give you a smile that you will be glad to share with anyone you meet in the coming year and for years to come.

Why You May Want To Consider Cosmetic Dentistry
Before we get into some specific cosmetic services, we first want you to consider how your smile can affect your everyday life.
Imagine these situations.
▸ You have a job interview. You are waiting outside to be called into for your turn to speak with who you hope will be your future employer. The interviewer calls you into her office and greets you with a handshake and a smile. Do you smile back, or do you hide your teeth?
▸ You are invited to meet a friend at a local restaurant. This friend is introducing you to someone new (a possible romantic interest). Will you feel comfortable letting him or her see your teeth, or will you feel self-conscious throughout your meal?
▸ You are meeting potential clients for your business. You want to make a good first impression on them. You want to be friendly and welcoming. Is that more likely if you smile or try to hide your teeth?
Your smile isn’t just about how you look in photographs. It affects how you are perceived by the people you encounter all the time. That may not be fair, but it is true.
Kelton Research conducted a survey about smiles in just a few years ago. A majority of the participants in the survey agreed that a person with a nice smile comes across as friendlier, smarter, more trustworthy, and more attractive than someone with a “bad” smile.
Holly Dental Care wants you to feel comfortable with your smile in any situation. That’s why we welcome you to make an appointment if you are interested in our cosmetic services. Call us at 877-321-1933.
How Cosmetic Dentistry Can Work For You
We have discussed some reasons you may want to consider cosmetic dentistry. Now, it’s time to explain what different services can do to change the appearance of your smile.
★ Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles are what you might call cosmetic orthodontics. All orthodontic treatment provide some cosmetic improvement by straightening your teeth. Many of those treatments can take years to complete, however.
Six Months Smiles can give you a new smile in a fraction of that time. By focusing on moving only the most visible teeth, you can transform the appearance of your smile in less time.
★ Professional teeth whitening
You’ve seen the teeth whitening products in the toothpaste aisle. You may have even tried some of them only to be disappointed with the results.
You need professional teeth whitening power to remove stains that have developed after years of coffee, tea, soft drinks, and more. At Holly Dental Care, we offer two professional whitening products — LUMIBRITE and KöR.
If you need a quick fix for a special event, LUMIBRITE chairside whitening is often the perfect solution. KöR is a great option for patients who have deep stains that may not respond to other whitening products.
★ Tooth bonding
Tooth bonding is a great way to make changes to individual teeth. A single chipped tooth can be enough to make some people feel self-conscious about their smiles. At the same time, some of your teeth may start to look worn down with time.
In either case, tooth bonding could be what you want. With tooth bonding, a special resin is carefully applied to your teeth. This resin can fill in the chips in your teeth or rebuild teeth that have become worn down.
The resin matches the color of your natural teeth. It won’t distract other people after it’s applied to your teeth.
★ Dental Veneers
In a way, veneers are a catch-all solution. Dental veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth, which means they can conceal a variety of issues. At the same time, they can give you a smile that looks as straight and as white as you want.
Veneers can also restore chipped and worn down teeth. They can close gaps between teeth, and they can make crowded teeth look more evenly spaced.
