Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry
So what does a great smile give you?
Having a beautiful, brighter and more pleasing smile not only increases our attractiveness, but also our health because we will smile more frequently. Smiling and laughing are powerful stress releasers. Investing in your smile can help you send the right kind of message you want others to get.
When you smile, you will light up others to smile too. You can be a walking environmental up-grade wherever you are. You will feel better about yourself and improve your self-confidence. If your smile does not make you feel good when you look in a mirror, then ask me what can be done for you. It’s possible that more can be done than you think and not as costly as you might expect.
So yes, I’m really into helping my patients feel better about their smile. I consider it something I can do to improve your health, self-confidence and promote a positive self-image.
With today’s life-like porcelains we can make your smile not only beautiful, but brilliant, dazzling and natural as well. We offer a full array of cosmetic services, which include whitening, orthodontics, minimally invasive porcelain veneers and all porcelain crowns and onlays including the cutting edge and extra strong Zirconia, E Max, and Procera porcelains.
In my Chicago, IL and Indianapolis, IN practices, cosmetic and restorative dentistry that is visually pleasing is a part of everything I do. Biological and functional health is my number one priority, but aesthetics are of equal value and importance with any dentistry on your front teeth. Now, we can dramatically improve and transform your smile with procedures that are predictable, painless and requiring NO anesthetic injections.
- Esthetic mercury-free composite or porcelain restorations are used for all teeth. Expert, invisible fillings for anterior teeth
- Smile makeovers using beautiful, life-like porcelain veneers that can blend in with other teeth shades and transform your smile into something dazzling. The new porcelains are tough, made to last and carry a five-year warranty.
- One hour whitening and custom take-home whitening kits
- Metal-free all porcelain crowns, as well as traditional porcelain fused to gold crowns
- I offer full arch functional and traditional fixed orthodontics for children and adults. Metal-free, clear brackets are also available.
I now am trained-in, and highly recommend the Fastbraces® system of fixed orthodontics. Fastbraces® reduces treatment time by ½ to ⅔ and is also very gentle.
- I have over 35 years of experience and training in orthodontics.
- My Reverse Gum Disease Program is also a part of my cosmetic dentistry program. Valuable and aesthetic gum tissue is NEVER cut away with disfiguring surgery in the anterior area of the mouth because of bone loss and/or severe pocket depths. This is possible because the gums can be made to reattach to the teeth, shrinking the pocket depth while maintaining the original gum tissue levels. Of course minor gum surgery to make the smile more pleasing can be done.
