Improving the appearance of your smile can make a huge difference in your life; many people find that, once they’ve achieved their dream smiles, they feel more confident and more like themselves.

Our Naperville cosmetic dentists know that in order to achieve attractive results that truly last, we need to make sure that any aesthetic change we make also bolster the structure and health of your smile. With that in mind, keep reading to learn more about the factors our dentist prioritizes when crafting a cosmetic treatment plan.

As you would imagine, when a patient comes in for cosmetic care, one of the first things that we discuss is the patient’s dental goals. Whether you want to whiten your smile, correct unsightly damage, close gaps between your teeth, or straighten a crooked/crowded smile, we can help. Once we know what you want your smile to look like, we can start helping you figure out how to make that happen.

As treatment progresses, our team will assess your smile for any existing dental issues. We absolutely do not want to complete cosmetic treatment to cover up any oral health issues. It is imperative that we treat infections and damage before moving forward.

If your cosmetic treatment plan includes any kind of restoration, like crown or veneer, our team will ensure that this restoration functions optimally with your natural smile. Poorly constructed or improperly placed restorations may cause bite misalignment. Unfortunately, this can start a domino effect of unwanted health issues, including TMJ problems, premature dental wear and tear, and shifting dental alignment.

When pursuing cosmetic treatment, it is imperative that you don’t settle for one-size-fits-all treatment; be picky! Our Naperville cosmetic dentists are happy to give you any additional information that you may need about your aesthetic treatment options. Give us a call to schedule your appointment and get started!

Our Naperville cosmetic dentists understand that the way that your smile looks is important to you; it isn’t unreasonable to want a smile that makes you feel confident. That is why our dental team provides a number of aesthetic treatment options to help people achieve their dream smiles. Today we are going to be reviewing some of the treatments and techniques that we utilize to improve dental aesthetics.

The first thing we need to say is that, because our we provide comprehensive dentistry, everything that we do is designed to improve and honor the underlying structure and health of your smile. In most cases, simply improving the structure of the patient’s smile improves aesthetics as well.

Professional dental whitening: whitening treatments minimize existing stains and discoloration, and help to restore the patient’s smile to its previous level of whiteness. Our office uses state-of-the-art Opalescence Dental Whitening to deliver results gently and quickly.

Dental bonding: this treatment allows our team to correct dental damage and improve dental aesthetics using customized composite resin. Once the resin is cured it hardens and bonds permanently to the patient’s dental structure. Using this treatment, you can close gaps between teeth, cover dental staining, repair cracks and chips, and even make your smile look better aligned.

Porcelain veneers: these individually-crafted porcelain restorations are designed to be bonded to the patient’s natural dental surface. Veneers are exceptionally thin, about the width of a contact lens. Because veneers are completely customizable, you can use a single veneer to improve a damaged tooth, or any number of veneers to transform your smile.

These are just a few of the cosmetic treatments that we utilize in our Naperville cosmetic dental office. Because every patient is unique, every treatment plan that we build is likewise personalized to suit the patient.

As always, you can reach out to our dental team for more information and to schedule a personal consultation. We are here to help!

We hope that you check back often, and please feel free to reach out to our team for additional information!

In today’s article, we’re providing a short overview of the treatments we offer as well as our treatment philosophy. Let’s get started!

As you may already know, our office provides comprehensive dental care. We focus on treating the patient’s whole smile; we don’t just treat the symptoms of dental problems (like cavities), we actually work to optimize the underlying structure of the patient’s smile. Everything we do is informed by this dental philosophy.

In order to help our patients reach their dental goals, we employ a number of innovative and effective treatments:

Dental implants: these stand-alone replacement teeth are state-of-the-art solutions for tooth loss. Every dental implant is permanently grounded in the patient’s jawbone tissue with a titanium post.

Porcelain veneers: veneers are exceptionally thin restorations that are attached to a patient’s natural dental structure in order to transform and resurface the patient’s teeth. Because every porcelain veneer is customized to the suit the patient, the functional and aesthetic results are impressive.

Dental bonding: our team can repair damaged teeth and improve dental aesthetics with personalized composite resin bonding. Patients love this treatment because it can be completed in just on dental appointment, and it is customizable.

These are just three of the treatments that we offer; check back soon to learn more about the treatments and technologies that Dr. Crombie uses. Until then, contact our office by phone or through our Contact Us page in order to schedule a consultation with our Naperville dentist!
