Elmhurst Emergency Dentist Helps Patients Recover With State-of-the-Art Care

Written by Dr. Scharfenberg on Jul 20, 2021

Dental trauma can be difficult to deal with, both emotionally and logistically. That is why our Elmhurst emergency dentists make it a point to deliver straightforward, effective emergency care to patients of all ages. Keep reading to learn more about what’s possible in the world of restorative care… 

Composite Resin Treatments

Composite resin is a totally metal and amalgam-free restorative material that is used to repair and rebuild tooth structure. Made of a combination of plastic compounds and ceramic, resin begins as a soft moldable putty, and, once it cures, it hardens into a permanent bond with your underlying tooth structure.

You may benefit from composite resin treatment if you want to correct:

  • Damaged or cracked enamel
  • Disproportionately short teeth
  • Uneven dental alignment
  • Irregularly colored or textured dental enamel

Porcelain Restorations

Both restorative dental crowns and cosmetic veneers are made from porcelain. You probably already know that porcelain is a preferred material in the dental world because it so closely mimics the attributes of natural dental enamel.

The porcelain that we use today is stronger than dental porcelain in the past. What does this mean for you? Our team can make porcelain veneers thinner than ever before without sacrificing durability and strength.

Another key benefit of porcelain restorations is that they can usually be crafted and placed in just two or three appointments. 

Perfecting Gum Tissue 

If your gum tissue becomes damaged due to a laceration or infection, or if your smile has simply developed with uneven or poorly balanced tissue, our dental team can help you reframe your smile with tissue shaping treatment. The good news is that gum tissue treatment doesn’t take long to complete, and the post-treatment healing time necessary is not long at all.  

When you are faced with unforeseen dental problems, our Elmhurst dental team is here to help you get your smile back on track. We’re here for you!
