Let’s help you figure out how you can get the smile you’ve always wanted.cosmetic dentistry

We know that not everyone is confident in or happy with their smiles; however, most people just go about life offering up close-lipped smiles and shying away from social gatherings and conversations as a result. There’s no reason to hide your smile from the world. Our Chicago, IL cosmetic dentist, Dr. Hartej Sood, is here to tell you the many ways your smile could benefit from cosmetic dentistry.

Dental Veneers

If you want a straight, more symmetrical smile but certain flaws are preventing you from having it, then porcelain veneers could be the cosmetic restoration you’ve been waiting for. These extremely thin, custom-made porcelain shells are bonded to the front of each tooth to hide everything from chips and stains to misshapen teeth, gaps between teeth, and other minor misalignment issues.

Teeth Whitening

Sometimes all those years of smoking or coffee drinking finally catch up with you (or your smile, at least). If your once brilliant teeth are now dull and yellow and you want a quick, fast, and effective way to get a visibly whiter smile then in-office whitening is the cosmetic treatment for you. You may even be able to get your smile five shades whiter (or more!) in just a single one-hour session.

Dental Crowns

Sure, most people think of dental crowns and think that they are only used to protect damaged teeth or a tooth after root canal treatment, but you can also choose to get dental crowns to cover a cosmetically flawed tooth. In this instance, it’s ideal for a tooth that has extensive and severe discolorations or is malformed or badly misshapen. A crown can easily cover the tooth to hide the imperfections and to give you a more attractive smile.

Dental Bonding

Sometimes you are only dealing with minimal flaws in your smile and you don’t want to undergo more extensive cosmetic dentistry. We completely understand. That’s why dental bonding is a fantastic option for someone who has small cracks, chips, gaps between teeth, and discolorations. During bonding, our Chicago dentist will apply a moldable tooth-colored material (also known as composite resin) to the tooth, shape it and then harden it permanently to the tooth with a dental laser.
