Elmhurst Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments Will Help You Correct Common Aesthetic Problems

Everybody wants a smile that looks young, fresh, and perfected. However, very few of us are lucky enough to be born with Hollywood smiles!

But don’t worry, our Elmhurst cosmetic dentist office provides the aesthetic dental treatments that you need to transform your teeth. If you have been considering cosmetic dentistry for your smile, this article is for you!

So let’s say that you want to…

Brighten your smile—you might want to minimize stains on your natural enamel by undergoing professional whitening treatments. If whitening treatments aren’t for you, you could alternatively cover discolored and dull teeth with bright dental resin (through dental bonding), or with porcelain dental veneers. Our dentist is here to help you figure out which of these treatments might work best for your smile.

Close gaps between your teeth—traditional orthodontic treatment can move your natural teeth into better alignment. However, there are faster alternatives that achieve the same visual result. Porcelain dental veneers—which are placed over the patient’s real teeth—can close spaces between teeth. Dental bonding can also be used to eliminate small irregular spaces.

Correct existing dental enamel damage—if you have cracks and chips in your teeth, it might be time for some dental rejuvenation! Small cracks and chips can be filled in with dental resin (which is shaded to match your enamel). If your tooth is structurally damaged, you will probably need a customized crown to restore both the appearance and the function of your tooth. The dental crowns that our dentist places are made to fit comfortably and look bright and natural in your smile.
