Elmhurst Cosmetic Dentist Provides Many Cosmetic Treatments For Common Problems

Written by Dr. Scharfenberg on Apr 3, 2016

Cosmetic dentistry treatments are faster, easier, and more effective than ever before. Our Elmhurst dentists take pride in helping our cosmetic dentistry patients achieve smiles that they truly love. Today we are discussing some common aesthetic complaints, and what we can do to address these!

Issues With Dental Enamel

Many cosmetic problems are really aesthetic issues with dental enamel. Dental enamel is the white, sturdy outer covering of the teeth. Even dental enamel that starts out as bright, white, and fresh can diminish over time. You may deal with stains on your dental enamel, dull teeth, and/or cracks and chips in your enamel.

Teeth whitening is an effective way to lighten natural enamel for many dental patients. Additionally, cosmetic treatments like dental bonding and veneers can cover unsightly enamel, and help rebuild teeth that are worn down or damaged.

Structure and Alignment Problems

Another complaint that we often hear from dental patients is that their teeth are oddly spaced, or crooked/crowded. People looking for alternatives to lengthy orthodontic treatment can achieve straighten and seamless smiles using porcelain veneers. Dental bonding is another option for making slightly misaligned teeth appear straight.

Gum Tissue Deterioration and Damage

Damaged and infected gum tissue can also bring down the appearance of your smile. Unsightly gum tissue is often the results of rampant gum disease; our dental team provides effective treatments for gum disease so that your oral tissues can heal. Gum tissue contouring can also improve the balance of the patient’s tissue, and refine the overall appearance of the patient’s smile.

If there are certain things you would like to change or improve about your smile, our Elmhurst cosmetic dentists are here to help you. Call us to learn more about particular treatments that are available, and to schedule a consultation with our helpful team.
