Elmhurst Cosmetic Dentist Addresses a Range of Cosmetic Issues

Written by Dr. Scharfenberg on Aug 4, 2015

Our Elmhurst cosmetic dentists help all kinds of dental patients perfect their smiles with cosmetic dentistry. We know that different people have different aesthetic needs and desires, which is why we provide a number of different cosmetic treatments in our office.

Here are some of the common cosmetic issues that we address with state-of-the-art dental care:

Stained and dark teeth

Many adult patients notice that their teeth start to look dark, dull, or stained as time goes on. This usually happens both because the patient’s dental enamel begins to thin, and because dental enamel continually accumulates environment stains (from foods, drinks, and tobacco products) over time.

Professional dental whitening treatments work to lift embedded stains and restore the patient’s smile to its previous level of whiteness. These treatments are pretty affordable, and many patients notice visible results after just one or two treatments. If professional whitening treatments don’t work for you, then you may choose to use dental bonding or veneers to brighten your smile.

Damaged enamel

It is also common for people to accumulate some cracks or chips in their dental enamel over time. In order to fortify these teeth, and improve the appearances of the teeth, our dental team may use dental resin to fill in cracks and chips—this process is called dental bonding. Dental veneers can also be used to cover compromised enamel, and give the smile a fresh, clean, and unblemished appearance.

These are just two of the aesthetic issues that we regularly address in our Elmhurst dentist office. Every dental patient is unique, so in order to figure out what type of treatments might work for you, please feel free to schedule a consultation with our dental team. During your consultation we’ll assess your smile and provide you with some personalized recommendations.

We look forward to speaking with you!
