Even the best maintained teeth take quite a beating, over the years they are bound to become discolored, stained, chipped, worn etc. The result is a smile that is less than what you want it to be. Cosmetic dentistry in Naperville can fix these problems through the use of one or more of the available cosmetic dental procedures commonly used.
The most common cosmetic dental procedures are:
Teeth whitening: The simplest and the least expensive way to improve your smile is to have your teeth whitened. You can whiten your teeth at home using a tray that is designed and made by your dentist or you can have the entire procedure done in the dentist’s office. When the procedure is performed in the office it is considerably faster and more effective as the dentist can control the application of the bleaching materials.
Dental veneers: Dental veneers are extremely thin wafers of porcelain or resin which are fitted directly to the visible surface of your teeth. Your dentist will first grind the surface of your teeth to provide room for the veneers. The veneers are made against a mold; once they are completed they are fixed to the tooth surface with dental adhesive. Veneers are ideal for changing the shape, size and color of teeth and are often used to close unsightly gaps between teeth.
Bonding: Dental bonding uses a putty-like material that the dentist applies to your teeth. The material is subjected to a UV light source which hardens it. Once the material is hard, the dentist can shape it and polish it. It is an ideal solution for those patients who want to get rid of their old amalgam fillings.
These are just three of the many procedures used in cosmetic dentistry in Naperville. Your dentist can apply crowns, fit dental implants and more.
