What makes up a perfect smile? White teeth? Straight teeth? Teeth with pleasing proportions relative to one another? At David A. Rice DDS in Elgin, we believe a perfect smile is more than the sum of its parts. A perfect smile also contains an intangible element, your unique personality.
What is a smile makeover? It is a combination of cosmetic dentistry procedures that remedy any problems with your existing smile.
At David Rice DDS we use all the state-of-the art treatments available. Modern cosmetic dentistry offers a multitude of tooth restoration treatments. On the least invasive end, we have dental bonding and inlays/onlays. These can often be completed in just one visit. Porcelain veneers can remedy small imperfections such as chips. A veneer can also correct the shape of a tooth that is misaligned.
If you have teeth that are not structurally sound, you may need a dental crown. The crowns we provide at David A. Rice, DDS in Elgin blend perfectly with your existing teeth. No “chiclet” effect where the crown sticks out like a sore thumb.
What if you have a tooth that is completely missing? Ask us about dental implants. This permanent tooth restoration is actually anchored into the jawbone, offering strength, natural function, and protection from bone recession. With an implant, there is no need to damage the two adjacent teeth as is necessary for a dental bridge. There are a variety of dental braces available for our patients who need orthodontic treatment. Ask us about invisible braces, lingual braces and fast braces.
Perhaps your greatest need is to repair prior dental work performed elsewhere. We can remove old silver fillings and replace with natural tooth colored fillings and replace broken dental crowns.
The crowning touch? Teeth whitening.
