Cosmetic Dentist in Arlington Heights
What’s the first thing you notice about another person when meeting for the first time? Research suggests that it’s usually their smile, which might not be great news for some patients. The sad truth is that imperfections can accumulate on even healthy teeth over time, resulting in a lackluster appearance and diminished self-confidence. With quality cosmetic attention, Dr. Ernest Costello and Dr. Jay DeHart can practically erase these issues, replacing them with a bright, beautiful look you’re sure to enjoy. Contact our Arlington Heights, IL practice today to schedule a complimentary consultation!
Nearly everyone will need a filling at one point or another in their life to correct tooth decay. Thankfully, the process is simple and comfortable. At Costello Dental, we’re happy to offer composite resin, tooth-colored fillings as an alternative to the traditional amalgam material. This quality material can be shaded to closely match your natural smile, and because of the lack of metal, it’s not sensitive to changes in temperature. They’re also durable and conservative, allowing patients to maintain more of the treated tooth’s natural healthy structure. We can use composite resin to replace silver fillings, revitalize areas with failing fillings, and even treat minor fractures and cracks.
Instead of undergoing several cosmetic procedures, patients can enjoy dazzling changes faster than ever at Costello Dental with just one – porcelain veneers. Veneers are crafted from the same quality material as ceramic dental crowns, but they’re designed by a cosmetic dentist to fit over just the front surface area of your teeth instead of the entire shape, hiding cracks, chips, stains, gaps, and other flaws from view. Their extremely thin structure allows them to look natural, and they’re even more resistant against discoloration than your original enamel. Our doctors can even design your new veneer to correct minor, personal issues like the length or size of certain teeth. We want to help you enjoy the smile you’ve been dreaming about!
Our Arlington Heights cosmetic dentists recommend custom restorations when significantly damaged teeth are in need of revitalization and rebuilt structure. This may not be good news to older patients, who are sure to imagine gold and silver crowns marring their otherwise natural smiles. Thankfully, our practice has invested in an alternative: all-ceramic restorations. This treatment solution is the perfect blend of aesthetic and restorative benefits, restoring teeth seamlessly in a durable and biocompatible fashion. Better yet, CEREC allows our team to create and place the finished product in just one appointment, saving patients plenty of valuable time.
It’s never too late to enjoy brighter teeth! Our teeth whitening options are designed to improve your smile at a convenient, gradual pace – patients can use the gel and custom-oral trays at home whenever they have the time. After just a few weeks of diligent use, you should see plenty of beautiful improvement.
