For centuries, people have tried to find ways to replace lost teeth and improve their smiles. They tried to carve teeth from bone, stone or another material and implant it in their jaw. Others tried to make false teeth and attach them with wires. Most of these attempts were unsuccessful.

Modern cosmetic dentistry is mainstream, using advanced technology to help millions to look and feel more self-assured. Many of these people will be so proud of their new smiles that they become more meticulous about brushing, flossing and checkups, resulting in improved overall health.

How could cosmetic dentistry in Wheaton improve your smile and health?

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental solutions. Everyone wants to have that fabulous smile that is such a tremendous boost to self-confidence. This seemingly minor treatment can have a major impact on someone’s life because they feel so much better about themselves. Whitening procedures done in the dentist’s office are the quickest and most effective way to achieve that smile.

Bonding can be used to cover up stains on the teeth. However, this technique can also correct gaps between teeth and repair a cracked tooth. This procedure is an affordable solution for many patients.

When a tooth has been lost or absolutely must be removed, a dental implant is considered to be the best alternative to the natural, lost tooth. This technology requires periodic visits over a few months, but the end result is a tooth that performs just as the original tooth did. Multiple implants can be done during the same visit if necessary. During the healing process, a temporary crown will allow the patient to talk and eat normally. When the permanent implant is installed, no one will know you have an implant and adjoining teeth will not have been altered or damaged.

These are only a few of the ways in which cosmetic dentistry in Wheaton can be of benefit. Dupage Dental Smiles is committed to preserving a patient’s original teeth whenever possible and explaining all of the available options.
