Feel great about your smile with cosmetic dentistry services in Burr Ridge.
We may each have a number of physical attributes that we find important. Studies show, however, that the smile is a feature that is noticed even before the eyes, hair, or clothing. Because we are inherently aware of this tendency to notice other’s smiles and make snap first-impression opinions within seconds, we may also be very aware of the appearance of our own smile.
Chips, cracks, gaps, discoloration, and other imperfections can leave you feeling embarrassed about the way you look. We want you to feel the confidence you deserve and are pleased to offer a selection of cosmetic services to complement biological dental care for optimal oral health.
Cosmetic dentistry has continued to evolve over the course of several decades. This niche in dentistry focuses on the enhancement of beauty in the smile. In some cases, cosmetic improvement comes from the replacement of unattractive amalgam fillings with tooth-colored composites.
The care that Dr. Stopka and her team provides is intended to help patients feel great about the appearance of their smiles. We understand that your smile is unique to you. Working together, we tackle your cosmetic concerns with customized treatments that fit into your timeline and budget.
The first step we take is to sit down with you and listen to your expectations. Dr. Stopka then performs a smile assessment as well as a dental exam. Cosmetic dentistry may focus on the smile, but we consider the harmony that should exist between the smile and the rest of the face. Considering all factors, we are able to achieve results that our patients love.
One of the most common cosmetic dental procedures performed today is teeth whitening. Many people find that this safe, straightforward process improves their entire facial appearance. Teeth whitening treatment prescribed by your dentist is effective at removing years of built-up stains – and years from the face. Look and feel younger with a brighter smile from your Burr Ridge dentist.
The appearance of teeth may also be greatly improved with the design and placement of beautiful porcelain veneers. Veneers are ultra-thin covers that Dr. Stopka designs with attention to the little details that create a natural look. Treatment takes only two to three visits, during which veneers are designed based on patient expectations, teeth are prepared, and final veneers are placed. With this cosmetic process, we can perfect the size, shape, or color of one tooth or several. When completed, veneers dramatically enhance the smile to look naturally beautiful.
