Cosmetic dentistry refers to any procedure that helps to improve the appearance of your teeth and gums.
With significant advancements in technology, dentists are now able to fix both minor and major aesthetic flaws, such as chips, cracks, stains, and more. Dr. Hsu can even change the shape and size of your teeth, alter your gum line, and improve your bite.
Each patient has different needs, and Dr. Hsu is happy to discuss which cosmetic treatment options are best for you. Crystal Lake Dental offers common aesthetic services, such as:
Dental veneers, also called laminates, are thin, porcelain caps that cover the front of a tooth. They are helpful if your tooth is stained, chipped, or if you want to minimize the appearance of gaps between your teeth.
In a bonding procedure, Dr. Hsu uses a tooth-colored resin to fill in gaps, cavities, or chips in the teeth. The material blends in with the rest of your smile, so it’s not noticeable to the naked eye.
Crowns can restore the strength and integrity of a tooth that is damaged, cracked, or decaying. Crowns are fixed to the top of your tooth, which prevents the tooth and its roots from further damage or deterioration.
Unlike at-home teeth whitening kits, dental-supervised whitening procedures offer more dramatic results in a shorter amount of time. Dr. Hsu can recommend the best option for you and create custom whitening trays to fit your teeth.
With options like Invisalign®, you can straighten your teeth with clear plastic aligners. This option is helpful for patients who want to correct minor crowding or spacing issues but don’t want traditional braces.
Besides changing your smile for the better, there are other benefits of cosmetic dentistry. The most significant advantage of most cosmetic procedures is that they help to maintain your oral health and prevent future dental complications.
Cosmetic dentistry can also boost your self-confidence and help you feel more comfortable when flashing your smile.
