Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are handcrafted, custom designed and custom made thin shells of dental porcelain placed on teeth in your smile zone. They are stain resistant and made to blend in beautifully with surrounding teeth. Using the newest ceramic technology, porcelain veneers can be ultra-thin and therefore placed with minimal tooth drilling. The results will be an amazing and natural-looking smile.

Cosmetic Bonding

Chips, stains, and cracks on your front teeth can easily detract from an otherwise attractive appearance. Cosmetic bonding can be a conservative option for some of these dental flaws. Composite bonding is shaping and adhering tooth colored bonding material to front teeth. It is shade matched and polished to a high sheen. Composite bonding can usually be done in a single appointment.

Cosmetic Orthodontics

You may associate braces with middle school or high school students, but more adults than ever are turning to orthodontics to improve their bite and reposition their teeth for cosmetic reasons. Modern braces can be made from clear or tooth-colored structures, and some dentists offer clear, removable aligners.

Teeth Whitening

When performed by a dentist, teeth whitening, or bleaching, is quite effective. Your dentist can administer a higher concentration of whitening solution than over-the-counter systems, so the results are more significant. We offer several types of teeth whitening procedures at our Chicago dental office. Your dentist will help you determine the best solution for your unique lifestyle and goals.

Accidents and Trauma

Sports injuries, car accidents, and falls….there are many causes of tooth fractures or tooth loss. The most common trauma is a fracture in the tooth’s crown, the visible part of your tooth, followed by tooth displacement or avulsion. Falls and trauma are the most common types of dental trauma among adolescents. For adults, their dental trauma may be caused by a fall, sports injury, or an automobile accident.

Teeth that have been injured or lost due to trauma may be able to be restored back to their original beauty through cosmetic dentistry. Porcelain veneers or crowns may be used to repair fractured or chipped teeth. For avulsed teeth or teeth that have been completely knocked out, dental implants may be an option. Our accredited cosmetic dentist, Dr. Susan McMahon, is highly skilled at restoring teeth that were damaged from sports-related injuries, car accidents, falls or other dental injuries. Our team of specialists will coordinate the care necessary to repair your damaged teeth, and restore the beauty and function of your smile.
