Our Orland Park cosmetic dentists pride ourselves on providing a wide variety of aesthetic treatments, so that we can meet all of our patients’ respective dental needs. If you have been wondering about how different treatments work, or for whom they are appropriate, then this short article is for you! Today our dental team is answering a number of the questions that we hear frequently from dental patients about the treatments we offer.
Q: I’m looking for a quick cosmetic treatment—what are some good options?
A: There are a number of aesthetic treatments that deliver exceptional results in a very short period of time. Dental bonding, for example, is used to whiten smiles and correct dental damage; this treatment takes just one appointment to complete. Additionally, topical professional whitening treatments, which lessen existing dental stains, delivers immediate results.
Q: What are the advantages of Invisalign over traditional braces?
A: More and more patients are choosing Invisalign because this treatment is discreet and comfortable. Invisalign aligners are crafted from smooth, clear plastic. On the other hand, traditional braces utilize metal brackets and wires to move teeth. When you are wearing Invisalign aligners, you’ll find that they feel comfortable, and do not irritate your oral tissues (as conventional braces are prone to doing). Additionally, the clear aligners are practically invisible when they are in place over your teeth.
Q: I’m prone to dental sensitivity, can I go through cosmetic dental treatment?
A: Our dental team uses whitening formulations that are comfortable and suitable for patients with sensitive teeth. Certain cosmetic treatments, like dental bonding, are non-invasive, and thus naturally very comfortable. We also offer a number of sedation treatments to help you in the dentist’s chair. When we are discussing your cosmetic dentistry options, please let our dental team know if you think relaxation treatments might help you.
