Why Choose Northbrook Dental Group for Cosmetic Dentistry?
- Long-Lasting, Personalized Veneers
- Professional-Grade Teeth Whitening Kits
- Metal-Free Dental Crowns Placed in One Visit
A dental veneer is a small sheath of porcelain material that has been shaded so that it resembles your natural teeth. It’s the perfect way to address multiple imperfections with a single treatment: the veneer can be placed over the front side of a visible tooth, completely hiding any cracks, stains, and other cosmetic issues. The veneers process can be completed in as little as two appointments, and you can get veneers to cover all of your teeth to transform your entire smile with one treatment.
Are you having trouble removing tooth stains with over-the-counter products? The teeth whitening treatments offered at Northbrook Dental Group are much more effective when it comes to getting rid of tooth discoloration, and they can be completed in much less time. We offer professional-grade teeth whitening kits that create brilliant results.
Metal-Free Dental Restorations
Some patients might still remember the days when dental fillings and crowns were only made out of metal. Today, there are far more aesthetically pleasing options available. Fillings can be made out of tooth-colored composite resin, which blends right in with the enamel around it. Dental crowns can be made out of porcelain and other tooth-colored materials that look and feel natural in your mouth.
A small chip or crack on a tooth can be frustrating, but often it is easy to fix these minor cosmetic dental imperfections. We take some composite resin, place it on the tooth, and sculpt it until it blends in perfectly with its surroundings. At the end of the treatment, the flaw will be completely hidden. This treatment is a quicker, more affordable alternative to veneers.
You might have been born with gums that cover just a bit too much of your teeth, resulting in what is known as a “gummy” smile. If you are interested, we can remove some of the excess tissue during a gum recontouring process. This will gently reshape the gum line so that it complements your teeth instead of overshadowing them.
When there are several changes you want to make to your teeth and you’re not sure where to start, your first step should be to call our dental office so that we can start planning a smile makeover. We will ask you a few questions to determine what you want to accomplish with your teeth, and we will put together a custom dental treatment plan to help make it a reality.
