Below are some of the common cosmetic dental services we provide for our patients at 1st Family Dental of Arlington Heights:
Teeth whitening is the most common cosmetic dental service provided. Teeth whitening processes vary but are most popular because there are solutions to fit any lifestyle and brighten just about any smile. Tooth discoloration takes place in the enamel and can be a reaction to certain medication, cigarettes, tea, coffee, aging, and just daily wear and tear.
Most dentists, including ours at 1st Family Dental, offer teeth whitening in the office, or can provide you with a kit to use at home. For in-office treatment, you will see immediate results. We offer Zoom! Teeth Whitening which takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour but is minimally invasive and you will see the results immediately.
We also offer take-home whitening treatment kits which can be just as effective but usually take two to four weeks to start noticing a difference.
Porcelain Veneers in Arlington Hts
Veneers are a popular option for changing the size and shape of one or many teeth. Basically, veneers are small, thin pieces of porcelain or composite materail that are placed over the front of a tooth to change the size, shape, and/or color of the tooth. Veneers are typically used for teeth that are oddly shaped, crooked, unevenly spaced, discolored, or chipped. In most cases, no anesthesia is necessary to place veneers.
The treatment process for veneers start with your dentist making an impression of the tooth or teeth that are receiving the veneer. You will work with your dentist to determine the size, shape, and color of your new veneer. When the veneer(s) is ready to be placed, the dentist will lightly buff the surface of each tooth that is receiving a veneer to ensure that the surface will adhere properly to the veneer. The veneer will be cemented to your tooth and the dentist will look for any potential issues with biting, chewing, or speaking.
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
Minor dental imperfections can usually be addressed with cosmetic dental bonding. This is great for small chips, gaps, or even uneven teeth. If the tooth is healthy but discolored, dental bonding could be a cost effective solution to help hide some of that discoloration, as well, like covering silver fillings that can be seen when you smile or talk.
Tooth Colored Dental Fillings
Gone are the days of silver, metal-looking fillings. At 1st Family Dental, we provide tooth-colored (white) fillings that blend in with your teeth and smile. These fillings are made with a strong, resilient composite that last a very long time and make it nearly impossible for anyone to notice that you even have a filling.
