When something goes wrong with one of your teeth, there's no way to hide the problem. Whether you've chipped a tooth or are missing cosmetic dentistry one or more teeth, the issue can be obvious every time you open your mouth. Luckily, cosmetic dentistry procedures can restore your smile. River Forest, IL, dentists Dr. Gina Piccioni and Dr. John Hartmann at River Forest Dental Studio discuss a few procedures you may want to consider.

Porcelain veneers

Porcelain veneers cover up chips and other little flaws that can draw unwanted attention to your smile. Veneers, thin layers of porcelain attached to the front surfaces of your teeth, are a good choice if you want to conceal cracks, pits or bumps, or change the appearance of a tooth that just looks out of place in your mouth. Have you always wanted to do something about the slight gap between your front teeth? Veneers offer a simple way to cover small spaces between teeth. They're also ideal for hiding discolorations, lengthening teeth and whitening your entire smile.

Teeth whitening

Have you ever looked at an old photo and marveled at how white your teeth were 10 or 20 years ago? Aging alone is enough to dull your smile, but the problem can also occur if you smoke or chew tobacco. If you start every morning with a cup of coffee or tea, your morning habit may also contribute to your duller smile. Luckily, it's simple to get rid of stains in tooth enamel with professional teeth whitening. You'll only need to spend about one hour at our River Forest office to improve your smile. After one whitening treatment, your teeth may be three to eight shades whiter.

Dental implants

Dental implants are the newest tooth replacement method. The small titanium implants fill up the space in your jawbone that used to be occupied by your tooth roots. Over a few months, the implants fuse to the bone, enabling them to support crowns that will replace the visible parts of your teeth. Dental implants are a good choice if you've lost just one tooth, but can also be used to replace multiple teeth, thanks to implant-supported bridges or dentures.
