Learn More About Your Cosmetic Treatment Options From Our Lincoln Park Dentists

Written by Dr. Szurgot on May 17, 2016

When our Lincoln Park cosmetic dentists meet with a new patient, we go to great lengths to explain all of our patient’s treatment options to him or her. Today we are going to give you a short overview of many of the commonly employed cosmetic treatments in our office. Let’s get started…

Professional dental whitening—our dental team will apply a topical whitening formulation on your enamel. Then, you simply relax as this formulation goes to work lifting existing stains. This non-invasive treatment is fast, effective, and affordable.

Dental bonding—during dental bonding treatment our dentist applies dental resin over your natural enamel. Then, we cure this resin so that it bonds to your tooth. With this treatment you can whiten your smile, close gaps between your teeth, and correct existing dental damage. You can even straighten the appearance of slightly misaligned teeth.

Veneers—these porcelain cosmetic restorations are designed to be exceptionally thin, so that they can completely cover the visible portions of the patient’s smile.

Invisalign—this treatment option offers a welcome alternative to traditional metal braces. With Invisalign treatment you can straighten and perfect your smile using clear plastic aligners.

Six Month Smiles—this treatment offers you yet another way to straighten and perfect your smile. Six Month Smiles focuses on moving the teeth that are visible when you smile, and—as you might have guessed—the average treatment time is just six to nine months!

Restorative treatments—the treatments that we use to repair and rebuild smiles are also designed to deliver exceptional aesthetic results. Customized, tooth-colored crowns, for example, are both functional and attractive. If you are currently missing teeth, we will tailor your dental implants or dentures to suit your needs.

As always, you can contact our Lincoln Park dentists if you have any additional questions—we are here to help you feel confident with your smile!
