Hi. My name is Dr. Robert Antolak, the owner of thegentledentist.com here located out in Shelby Township, Michigan. Phone number’s 586-247-3500. I have a question for you.  Do know what people notice first on you, when you first meet them, or when you first see them, or when they first see you. You think it’s your hair? You think it’s your clothes? No, it’s your smile!  People always notice your smile and they notice your teeth too. If you want to make a good first impression for you to work or if your single and looking for that special person or you just want to feel good about yourself then cosmetic dentistry is the thing for you. You know a smile is so important that we know, I know people who come in here, who have  an embarrassing smile and it effects personality.  They do this, they hide their smile. They do this when they try to smile. But, no matter what, they’re gonna always protect that smile from being  shown. In fact, they’ll be out of pictures for the people who are taking the pictures, and not the one in the photos.

So, what do we do about that? Well if you’re tired of not being able to smile we have lots of different options at our office. We do veneers- porcelain veneers, which are thin shells of porcelain that go over the teeth to give you a whole new smile. You can lengthen the teeth, brighten them, straighten them, in just as simple as two short visits.

Also, we do invisible braces which will slowly move the teeth together in a proper way using clear aligners. In doing that people don’t really notice that you have braces on, but yet your teeth are getting straightened out slowly. In fact I’m wearing one right now in my mouth.

We also do porcelain crowns. Porcelain crowns are like veneers, except they go around the whole tooth. And the beauty now is we have some materials now that are very very strong and they look beautiful. So they have the strength, they have the longevity, and when we bind it in place, they are like normal actual teeth. I have veneers, 2 veneers on my 2 front teeth on top that I had done many years ago. It’s amazing because they are just like my own teeth. I could never tell the difference.

Also, bleaching or whitening is probably one of the most common and popular types of procedures done that will whiten your teeth. We can do that in a quick way. Which is just by doing either Zoom, or we actually do the KOR Whitening System also, which is a very effective for giving an outstanding color. Even if you have dark tetracycline stained teeth, dark teeth.  It really brightens them up.  We also have those that you can take home with you. Wear whitening trays during the nighttime or even during the daytime. When you’re  driving from, back and forth from work to home and and that’ll whiten your teeth.

We have many different options here at our office. I like to  use digital photography  to capture your picture before and after. All different photos, I actually take 13 different pictures and shots. That way, we really involve our patients, so that they can see what I see. And then we can become interacted, and we can become part of a team to help you get the smile that you’ve always wanted to.

So, stop frowning… Stop not showing your smile. But come and feel comfortable and relax at the thegentledentist.com. Thank you. Have a blessed day.
