Dr. Jaffer and his team of trained tooth techs improve mouths' health and appearances through a long list of services that includes cleanings, implants, braces, root canals, dentures, extractions, and whitening treatments. A flickering fireplace and complimentary coffee and tea offer homey warmth to clients as they wait to have their teeth liberated from poppy seeds affixed with hot glue, and each treatment room features a TV, DVD player, CD player, and headphones to stretch relaxation across entire visits. Patients can select a film from the practice’s library or bring one from home.
Dr. Olsen, a graduate of the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, has been granting glossy grills since 1988. His practice's DayWhite take-home whitening kits combat the effects of reduced enamel, which allows the yellow core material in teeth to show through. To begin the process, a whitening wiz fits each patient with custom bleaching trays. Once home, stain fighters fill the trays with whitening gel and wear them as directed. After the whitening process is complete, patients can hold onto their trays, reusing them in the future to maintain their smile and the applause from passing pedestrians.
The practitioners at Gentle Dental Associates expand on dentistry’s traditional tooth tinkering with cosmetic Botox treatments to smooth smile frames. During the 15- to 20-minute treatment, a skilled dentist will ply his or her facial-aesthetics knowledge and injection expertise to surreptitiously insinuate 20 units of purified Botox proteins into insurgent wrinkle trenches. Once beneath the epidermal surface, Botox particles nestle into muscular nerve endings and rehabilitate facial façades by uncrumpling brow tissues, cheering up frown lines, and shooing away pesky crow's-feet more effectively than standing in a field and stuffing yourself with straw. Though the full visual impact of Botox injections often takes 3–10 days to develop, patients can emerge from the treatment room anticipating up to four months of smoothened skin and carefree horseplay in the fountain of youth.
Aided by Venus teeth-whitening technology, Dr. Colleen Bullard and her skilled staffers at Comprehensive Dentistry bulldoze barricades of discoloration and stains to reveal the pearly white enamel beneath. During the Venus White Max in-office service, tooth technicians slather chompers with a peroxide-based whitening gel before beaming a specialized LED light across the dentalscape. Each 60-minute treatment absolves teeth once graffitied with wine stains, coffee blotches, and expressionist murals, galvanizing smiles with an alabaster gleam that can last 6–12 months.
After graduating from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, David Schmidt, DDS, traveled a few miles east to Ypsilanti and opened his own dental practice. There, he and his staff offer general dentistry services such as exams, cleanings, sealants, and implants. For cosmetic needs, Dr. Schmidt designs custom teeth-whitening treatments and is a certified Invisalign provider, allowing him to straighten teeth without brackets, wires, or the team of design consultants that chooses a new braces color at every appointment.
