Is it second nature for you to smile with your mouth closed? Do you avoid being photographed and laugh with your hand over your mouth? A less-than-perfect grin can do a number on your self-confidence, which in turn can affect your relationships and your job prospects.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
At Smiles of Orland Park, we have a number of cosmetic dentistry procedures that can utterly transform your smile — and your life. By investing in your smile, you are investing in your future, and you can be confident it will pay off in spades.
Teeth whitening is a cost-effective way to transform stained, dingy teeth. At Smiles of Orland Park, we offer Zoom and Whiter Image products, which will remove unsightly stains and lighten your teeth up to eight shades. You may be skeptical about the effectiveness of professional whitening if you’ve tried drugstore kits before. But our products contain higher concentrations of active ingredients and are far more effective. Plus, our trays are custom molded to your mouth, ensuring a perfect, comfortable fit.
Dental bonding is another cosmetic dental procedure that will not break the bank. It’s a good way to cover minor dental flaws, such as cosmetic chips, cracks, stains, unevenness, or unwanted gaps between the teeth. In this painless technique (anesthesia generally not required), we use a composite resin that’s matched to your enamel color and apply it to your tooth. It’s meticulously molded and shaped and hardened with a special light. We then make any final adjustments and polish it up so it looks just like your natural tooth, but flawless!
It’s no wonder that dental veneers are so popular with celebrities. Of all the cosmetic dental procedures we offer, they are among the most transformative — and permanent. From each tooth to receive a veneer, we will remove a small layer of enamel. We will then take impressions, and your dental veneers will be custom-crafted to fit the shape of your teeth for a totally natural look. Veneers are bonded to the teeth using special cement. You may get veneers on one tooth or many, and with proper care, they will last years.
Cosmetic teeth contouring is a subtle but highly effective cosmetic dentistry procedure for certain issues such as slight overlaps, overly pointy or elongated teeth, small chips or blemishes, or misshapen teeth. The process is painless and generally does not require anesthesia. We will take low-radiation digital X-rays of your teeth, so we know where your enamel ends and sensitive pulp begins. We will then carefully reshape your teeth by removing very small amounts of enamel.
