Cosmetic Dental Issues Can Be Corrected Thanks To Our Elmhurst Cosmetic Dentists

Written by Dr. Scharfenberg on Dec 2, 2014

Keeping your smile looking bright and polished is now easier than ever thanks to modern cosmetic dentistry. Our Elmhurst cosmetic dentists are proud to offer the effective and simple dental treatments that dental patients need in order to achieve their dream smiles. Let’s learn more about how these treatments work, and what they can do to improve the appearance of various patients’ smiles.

The first thing to do is to determine exactly what it is you would like to improve about your smile. Some patients, for example, want to straighten their teeth. Others are interested in lightening dull or stained dental enamel. Some people need to address several cosmetic issues in order to achieve their dream smiles. The good news is that our dentist can create a customized treatment plan to suit your needs, exactly.

Let’s say that you want to lighten and brighten your teeth. The first treatment to consider is professional dental whitening. If dental whitening treatments are not effective for you, you can alternatively rejuvenate your smile with dental bonding or dental veneers.

If you want to achieve a smile that appears better aligned, and structurally perfected, you could straighten your natural teeth with orthodontics. Veneers can also make your smile look seamless—and these porcelain restorations deliver full results in just two or three dental appointments.

Some patients have teeth that are in some way misshapen, or that have uneven edges. To perfect these teeth we might contour your natural dental enamel, reshape the edges of your teeth with dental resin, or apply porcelain veneers to the affected teeth.

As you can see, many treatments can be combined differently in order to deliver customized results. If you want to learn more about what kinds of treatments might be right for your smile, contact our Elmhurst cosmetic dentist office.
