Your smile is one of the main features that affects your appearance. Our Orland Park dentists have found that when people love their smiles they often feel more confident and outgoing. Cosmetic dentistry is designed to help people discover their dream smiles, no matter what nature handed them.
There are so many treatment options available in dentistry today, but we’re going to be talking about a few that deliver results quickly. If you’re trying to improve the appearance of your smile in time for a reunion, wedding, or other special event, these may be for you!
Professional teeth whitening
Dental whitening treatments remove existing stains from the patient’s dental enamel, and help to restore the smile to its previous level of whiteness. During treatment, our dentist applies a topical whitening gel to the patient’s enamel. As this gel sits, it goes to work lifting stains from the dental structure. Many patients see an improvement in whiteness and luminosity after just one treatment. This is a great way to refresh your teeth and take years off of the appearance of your smile in a short period of time.
Dental bonding involves our dentist applying custom-shaded dental resin to the patient’s natural tooth in order to achieve an aesthetic or structural result. Once the resin is hardened and bonded to the tooth, it is durable and natural-looking. Bonding is a great choice for many people because it can resurface dark teeth, correct dental damage, close gaps between teeth, and even make a misaligned smile look more seamless. The bonding process is usually completed in just one treatment.
Another treatment option is to cover your natural teeth with personalized porcelain veneers. Veneers can completely transform your smile, and porcelain is an attractive and durable material for cosmetic restorations. Our team is usually able to complete veneer’s placement in just two or three dental appointments.
