Not that long ago, there were not many choices when it came to fixing your teeth, and you only went to the dentist if you
had a problem. Back then, tooth removal was common, along with large, unattractive metal fillings. Nowadays, cosmetic dentistry has evolved into an art. Cosmetic dental procedures are completed mainly to make you and your smile look better. Here at, A Dental Place in Lombard, IL we can help you and your smile look great.
At our practice, there are many cosmetic options to choose from to fix unsightly dental issues. Treatments to think about are:
Whitening treatments for darkened, aging teeth or teeth that are stained from coffee drinking and smoking. A Dental Place offers whitening kits to take home, which you can use at your convenience in the privacy of your home.
For more serious cosmetic needs, there are several treatments available at A Dental Place. For example, you might consider porcelain veneers if you have teeth that are:
- Badly shaped or broken
- Cracked or chipped
- Poorly aligned
- Heavily discolored or stained
A veneer is a thin laminate of porcelain placed over the front teeth to hide defects, blemishes, or discolorations. A mold is taken at our office and the veneers are created in a dental laboratory by skilled technicians. You would then return and have them cemented at our office. The result is a new, natural and magnificent smile.
Veneers are usually created out of porcelain; however, composite, a tooth-colored resin can be used for veneer material to correct small chips or cracks in your front teeth.
Our office does not place silver amalgam fillings. Instead, we place composite, which is the material of choice for cosmetically beautiful fillings. Composite is color-matched to your existing teeth and your new composite fillings will be virtually undetectable. Composites can be used to replace unpleasant metal fillings and they can correct teeth that are:
- Badly shaped
- Excessively discolored
- Poorly aligned
