Are you thinking about a smile makeover? Are you skeptical of promises of a “perfect smile” or a “celebrity smile?” Let’s talk about popular cosmetic dentistry procedures available from David Rice DDS in Elgin, and the results that can be expected.
The application of porcelain veneers at David A. Rice, DDS can remedy numerous aesthetic dental problems and is often a better solution than dental bonding.
Veneers can correct chips, cracks, minor tooth misalignment, tooth discoloration, unattractive tooth shape, and disproportionate tooth size. Can a porcelain veneer create a perfect tooth? While a veneer cannot repair a decayed tooth, it can turn an unsightly tooth into an aesthetically perfect tooth.
Teeth whitening is a non-invasive cosmetic dental treatment that dramatically improves a smile. However, some whitening dentists will guarantee fantastic results for any patient that wants a whiter smile.
At David A. Rice, DDS in Elgin, we only recommend tooth bleaching for patients that are good candidates for the process. If you have several crowns in the front of your mouth, or gums that have receded, conventional tooth-whitening may not brighten your smile.
Would you like to turn back the clock to your pre-filling smile? It is possible with white fillings at David A. Rice, DDS. To get an idea of how the inside of your mouth would look without unsightly metal amalgam fillings, have someone without any fillings open their mouth. Do you remember when your mouth looked like that?
