Happy Holidays from your friends at Shorewood Family Dental Care! As the go-to cosmetic dentist by Joliet and teeth transformations in the Shorewood, IL area, we would love to encourage you to give yourself the great gift of a smile makeover. With a new year almost here, there couldn’t be a better time to change your life for the better. Our team will help you figure out which treatment or combination of treatments makes sense for you. So, keep reading, and then be sure to follow up and schedule your consultation sooner than later!
Total Smile Makeover
Some patients would like to change their smile completely. If that sounds like you, we can make it happen. What’s more, we’ll also be able to make a wax mockup of your hoped-for smile so that you can see just what it will look like ahead of time. Don’t worry, if you’re not 100% satisfied, we’ll work with you until you are!
If you would prefer to ease into the world of cosmetic dentistry rather than going all in right away, that’s no problem. We offer a great way to do just that with dental bonding. Bonding works much like fillings in that a tooth-colored material is directly applied to your tooth and then shaped to create the desired result. It is perfect for fixing chips, gaps, and the like.
If you have any issues involving tooth decay, we can fill the cavity and directly bond a tooth-colored material to your tooth to create a strong, beautiful restoration that won’t leave you with any of those weird metallic splotches. We can even removed old amalgam fillings for a better overall look.
Have the years been unkind to your smile? We have a way to quickly cover over the damage! Dental veneers are thin, shell-like pieces of tooth-colored material that can be used to hide any noteworthy imperfections in your teeth. Fractured, chipped, misshapen, uneven, and badly stained teeth can all be covered up by this method.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Yellow teeth can be a source of constant embarrassment. But you don’t have to give up your coffee or red wine to get a better smile. In our Shorewood, IL dentist’s office, we offer professionally-directed take-home custom whitening trays designed to maximize the brightness of your smile. Whitening in the comfort of your own home is ideal in most cases, which is why we’re proud to offer these safe and effective NiteWhite trays!
Sometimes it isn’t the teeth that need the most work. If you suffer from an overly gummy smile, we can help by gently reshaping your gums in order to create the aesthetic you desire. We use a soft-tissue laser to gently sculpt your gums quickly, accurately, and painlessly. This procedure does not require stitches and does not result in bleeding. Plus, your newly reshaped gums will heal quickly.
