Are you less than satisfied with your smile? If so, you’re not alone. Cosmetic dentistry is booming as more and more treatments are developed to correct dental woes. If you’re not feeling confident about your smile, make an appointment with your dentist to find out which cosmetic treatments could revolutionize your look. Here is a look at some of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures to give you a glimpse of what is available:
If your teeth have structural problems, dental crowns could be the perfect solution. Crowns look and act like your natural teeth. Crowns are usually used after a large section of decay is removed from a tooth, or due to a root canal, but they can also be used to fix broken teeth and severely worn teeth. At University Associates in Dentistry, we can often complete a crown in a single visit thanks to CEREC technology, which allows us to take a digital impression of your mouth and mill your crown on-site.
Are your teeth chipped, misshapen, or significantly stained? You can fix these problems with veneers. With veneers, a very small portion of your tooth enamel is removed, and a thin, porcelain veneer is put in its place. Veneers can improve the color of your teeth and fix minor imperfections and spacing issues. They are extremely durable and don’t require any special care.
Teeth whitening is an extremely popular cosmetic dentistry treatment that is very easy to complete. At University Associates in Dentistry, we use the Kor Whitening System . This powerful system is highly rated by dentists and delivers long-lasting results—even on tetracycline-stained teeth. It is safe for teeth and gums, and unlike other whitening treatments, you don’t have to give up coffee, tea, and wine to maintain your results.
These treatments are just a taste of the cosmetic dentistry services we provide at University Associates in Dentistry, located in Chicago. Learn about all of our procedures, including general dentistry and dental implants , by calling (312) 704-5511.
