Enhance Your Smile’s Appearance
Patients with cosmetic imperfections in their smile, such as stained, cracked, or misaligned teeth, know how difficult it can be to take confidence in their appearance. However, these dental issues aren’t just harmful to your self-image. Misshapen or damaged teeth are difficult to maintain, which may result in further oral health problems like cavities or gum disease.
Fortunately, the dental professionals at Contos Smile Center offer expert cosmetic dentistry services to help you look and feel your best. Our cosmetic dentists in Chicago, IL take a comprehensive approach that uses a variety of innovative techniques.
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry consists of treatments designed to enhance the appearance of your teeth, which can often help improve their functionality, as well. Our Chicago cosmetic dentist has the necessary skills and tools to give your smile a refresh, regardless of its current state.
Our dentists utilize our advanced dental technology to give your smile a more appealing look. Oral health is still a priority for cosmetic dentists, but go beyond issues of dental decay, gum health, and other dental concerns to focus on restoring beauty and balance to your smile.
Our Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments
Dental bonding is a cost-effective and versatile treatment that can be used for both cosmetic and restorative dentistry purposes. Using a customizable composite resin, Dr. Contos can conceal stained teeth or repair cracked teeth.
Because dental bonding requires little to no preparation, patients may not need to undergo local anesthesia. The dental bonding procedure involves minimal tooth etching to ensure the resin bonds to your tooth and remains strong for years to come.
Dental veneers help conceal cosmetic imperfections in your teeth, such as cracks or discoloration. These thin porcelain shells are affixed to the fronts of your teeth for a flawless blend with your smile.
Porcelain veneers are made from a stain-resistant material, so they won’t discolor over time like natural teeth. If you’re looking for a convenient cosmetic treatment to instantly conceal flaws in your smile, look no further than dental veneers.
Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are also known as indirect fillings, as they replace specific parts of a damaged or decayed tooth. Inlays fill in the areas between the tooth’s cusps, while onlays cover the cusps entirely.
These restorations improve both the appearance and function of your smile, and are perfect for tooth damage too severe for dental fillings but not severe enough for dental crowns. Dr. Contos will be sure your inlay or onlay matches your surrounding teeth for a seamless appearance.
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. Over-the-counter whitening products can’t compare to the long-lasting, even results you’ll achieve with a professional whitening treatment. Our cosmetic dentists recommend an approach that has been proven in an array of studies and in their own practice.
It involves a one-hour office visit, during which your dentist will apply a hydrogen peroxide gel to your teeth and use a special light to enhance the product’s effectiveness. The gel is reapplied every 15 minutes. Your dazzling new smile can be up to eight shades lighter.
If you want to straighten your smile but don’t want to deal with the hassle of metal wires and brackets, say goodbye to traditional braces and hello to the revolutionary Invisalign® system. Invisalign clear aligners allow for discreet, convenient orthodontic treatment.
With Invisalign, you’ll be able to care for your teeth as usual, and you won’t need to attend any tightening appointments. Simply wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day and watch as your teeth shift gradually into alignment!
