If you are currently unhappy with your smile, you are certainly not alone. Many of our new patients are looking to improve their smiles: in terms of health and aesthetics. Today, our Orland Park dentists are going to be sharing some information about key tools and techniques that we use to help our patients achieve their dream smiles. Let’s get started!
No matter what treatments you end up pursuing, we’ll probably get started with a professional cleaning and assessment. This preliminary step allows us to get a full picture of what’s happening with your oral health.
If you have existing dental damage that needs to be corrected you may benefit from:
Personalized crowns: these tooth-colored restorations rebuild portions of individual teeth that have been removed due to injury or infection.
Dental bonding: using composite resin, Dr. Zaibak can lengthen short or worn down enamel, repair damage teeth, cover stained or discolored enamel, and even close gaps between teeth. One of the major advantages of dental bonding is that the entire process takes only one day to complete.
Invisalign: this cosmetic treatment offers our patients an alternative to traditional metal braces. Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to shift your teeth over time and refine your bite.
Veneers: these aesthetic restorations are only about as thick as contact lenses. However, once they are permanently adhered to your tooth surface, you can live your life normally and keep up with your regular routine.
Professional dental whitening: this treatment lifts existing stains and discoloration from the tooth surface, helping to restore your smile to its natural color. The important thing to keep in mind is that professional formulations are much more potent and effective than over-the-counter options you find at the pharmacy of grocery store.
Whether you end up combining treatments to achieve your goals, or you find one solution that meets all of your needs, our Orland Park dentists are here to help. Give us a call to get started!
