What Could Cosmetic Dentistry Do For You?

The short answer is “a lot.”

To help you develop your plan, it can be helpful to take a close look at your smile. Find a mirror and really look at what you see. You may want to grab some paper to make some notes as you are doing this.

Here are some questions to consider:

▪︎ What color are your teeth? What color would you like them to be?

▪︎ What, if anything, would you like to change anything about the alignment of your teeth?

▪︎ Do you have gaps between your teeth that you would like to close?

▪︎ Are any of your teeth chipped or worn down? How do you feel about the shape and size of your teeth?

▪︎ Do you feel like you have a gummy smile?

As you think about those questions, we recommend writing down the changes you would like to make to your smile. Knowing what you want will help our team whether you want whiter teeth, straighter teeth, a less gummy smile, or a combination of things.

Bring your notes with you when you visit Shorewood Dental Care. This can help our dentists identify what options could help you create the smile of your dreams.

Call 815-768-1615 to plan your visit to our Shorewood, IL, dentist office.

 

What Cosmetic Services Are Available?

You can use one or more services to create your new smile. Here are some options you can consider.

 

► Teeth Whitening

In some ways, this is the simplest cosmetic service available. It’s also one of the most popular cosmetic options.

As we get older, we drink more coffee, more tea, more soft drinks, more wine. We eat more pizza, more pasta, more desserts. Most of the things we eat and drink add to the stains on our teeth.

That’s also why our teeth gradually get darker or yellower. Professional teeth whitening is an effective and efficient way to remove deep-set stains and restore your pearly whites.

 

► Laser Gum Reshaping

If you feel your gum tissue is too prominent when you smile, then we can help.

You may have more gum tissue than you would like, or your teeth may not have erupted as much as some other people. In either case, the solution uses some of the best in dental technology.

Using a dental laser, we don’t have to cut into your gum tissue. You will recover from the procedure more quickly, and in the end, your smile will look how you want it to look.

 

► Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are a real workhorse in cosmetic dentistry. They are like a football player who can play offense, defense, and special teams. They are like a utility player in baseball who can play a number of positions.

Dental veneers are used to conceal your teeth behind a thin shell. This shell changes the appearance of your smile.

Veneers can be used to make crooked teeth look straight and to close gaps between teeth. Veneers can restore the size and shape of teeth that are chipped or worn down.

And veneers can be used to give you a white, bright smile. It doesn’t matter if your teeth are stained or discolored as a result of an injury, an illness, or the side effects of some medication.
