When our Orland Park cosmetic dentists put together a treatment plan we always begin by talking to our patients and identifying their key aesthetic goals. What kinds of improvements do they want to make? What bothers them about their smiles as they are? This kind of information helps to ensure that you end up with a post-treatment smile that you truly love.
Here are a few of the aesthetic factors that our patients often want to focus on:
If your previously white and bright smile is starting to look stained and aged, dental whitening can help turn back the clock. You may choose to pursue treatment that whitens the natural shade of your smile, or you may decide to use a dental-grade material, like porcelain or composite resin, to cover unattractive enamel.
Size & Shape
Teeth that are toot angular or too rounded can throw off the balance of a patient’s smile. Likewise, poorly shaped gum tissue may make your teeth look shorter or smaller than they really are. Our dental team can build up diminished enamel using porcelain restorations or composite dental bonding. We can also shape your gum tissue to frame your smile perfectly.
Many patients are unhappy with teeth that crooked, crowded, are spaced too far apart along the gum line. Orthodontic treatment, like Invisalign, actually moves poorly aligned teeth into more attractive positions. You could alternatively use veneers or dental bonding to resurface your enamel and make your smile appear straighter; this is an especially good option for those patients who need to transform their smiles quickly.
