Cosmetic Dentist HinsdaleCreating a beautiful smile requires vision, expertise, and careful planning. Although teeth whitening or porcelain veneers can be used to improve certain aspects of your smile, a true smile makeover is a comprehensive effort. There may be multiple factors that must be addressed in order to realize your new smile. Most importantly, a smile makeover is an investment that you should expect to be functional, long-lasting, as well as beautiful.

Consulting with your cosmetic dentist in Hinsdale is the best way to begin the journey towards the smile of your dreams. By discussing your goals and concerns, your cosmetic dentist can help to create the blueprint for you smile. Your dentist may utilize any combination of cosmetic techniques to produce the desired result.

Your cosmetic dentist will first want to ensure that your gums and bones are healthy enough to support your choices for cosmetic dentistry. This means making sure that you are free of gum disease or periodontal disease. Next, it is important to address any signs of infection, such as decay or broken down teeth.

Once your dentist has established a healthy foundation, the functional aspects can be considered. Are there missing teeth that should be replaced? You may want to consider dental implants for the most attractive and most stable tooth replacement solution. Are teeth in the proper position? Orthodontics may be an effective solution.

What do you see when you smile? Teeth that appear out of proportion in terms of size or shape can be corrected through the use of porcelain crowns, veneers, or by recontouring the gum tissue. Porcelain restorations can also be used to conceal imperfections such as spacing, crowding, and chipped or broken teeth. Your cosmetic dentist will utilize advanced technology and artistic vision to create restorations that are strong, permanent, and natural-looking.

Patients who desire a vivid, white smile may choose to pursue professional teeth whitening. This is a safe and effective method for brightening the smile. To complete the look of your clean, white smile, your cosmetic dentist may suggest replacing any amalgam (metal) fillings in the back teeth with newer, tooth-colored restorations.
