Lumineers/Porcelain Veneers in Elgin, Illinois
Porcelain veneers offer the ultimate solution in aesthetics and are one of the latest elite options in cosmetic dentistry. If you are concerned about the time it may take to have the smile of your dreams, veneers may be for you.
A veneer is a thin, custom-made shell designed to cover the front side of teeth. If your teeth are chipped, broken, or discolored, and if you have unwanted spaces between the teeth, porcelain veneers are a great way to change the color and shape of your teeth. Lumineers are similar to traditional porcelain veneers except they are used in cases where no tooth structure needs to be removed. Veneers can also be a great alternative to braces for slight orthodontic problems. They provide a beautiful solution in a short amount of time, and our expert dental team in Elgin, Illinois, has the experience and expertise to make the treatment quick and painless.
Composite Bonding Treatments in Elgin
There are times when a small imperfection in your teeth can make you feel insecure about smiling or laughing in front of others. If that sounds like you, consider composite bonding to get back your confidence.
Mercury-free composite bonding is a simple alternative to veneers, and our experienced dental team in Elgin can start the process quickly. Tooth-colored composites (white or natural-looking materials) are used to fill cavities, repair chips or cracks, close gaps between teeth and build up the worn edges of teeth. Direct composite bonding involves the precise placement of restorative material and is usually completed in one dental visit. More complicated or extensive treatments may require additional visits.
Mercury-free crowns, or caps, are used to restore broken or cracked teeth. All porcelain crowns eliminate the unattractive black line you may have seen next to the gum line on older crowns. Bringing your teeth up to date with crowns improves the whole look of your mouth and makes you look and feel younger.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Sometimes the simplest solutions are the best, and it may be that having your teeth professionally whitened is the best cosmetic dentistry choice for you to feel better and improve your life. Teeth whitening at our Elgin clinic can be an instant and affordable solution for teeth stains from coffee, tea, wine, tobacco, as well as age, which can cause teeth to become dull, dark and yellowed.
A combination of in-office, professional whitening and at-home whitening can provide you with lasting results. Teeth whitening treatments are safe when procedures are followed as directed. There are certain risks associated with bleaching that you should be aware of, however, such as sensitivity and gum irritation. Talk to us before you consider teeth whitening on your own.

Dentures & Implant Supported Dentures
When natural teeth cannot be restored and a person has lost most, or all, of their teeth, the only solution to restore the chewing and aesthetic function is partial or full dentures. When a person has lost too much of their jaw bone, a denture that is supported by dental implants may be the best option. It’s a great solution to provide stability to your dentures and give you peace of mind from worrying about embarrassing situations.

Crown-Lengthening & Deep Cleaning
It is best to bring it to our attention when your gums are sensitive and bleed during brushing. It could just be a temporary irritation that can be corrected by simple procedures like gingivectomy, deep cleaning, crown-lengthening, or simply by changing your brushing technique. However, it might be an early signal of some more serious issues with your gums, such as gum disease (periodontitis) or oral cancer. Remember that healthy gums don’t bleed from flossing or brushing! Swollen gums also look unattractive and can hinder your ability to smile freely. The most common signal of unhealthy gums is bad breath. If you have suffered from bad breath for some time, you need to talk to us! Untreated periodontal disease can contribute to higher cholesterol and glucose levels, leading to health issues such as diabetes and vascular dysfunction.
