The expert team at Weller Dental offers cosmetic dentistry for patients in Chicago and Hinsdale, IL, with an array of exceptional solutions for transforming dull, gapped, misaligned, or damaged teeth into the smile they have always dreamed of. To learn if cosmetic dentistry may be right for you, read on to discover how this approach can deliver a high-end aesthetic appearance and create a brilliant, winning smile.

How does cosmetic dentistry transform smiles?

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on enhancing the appearance of the teeth and smile. While the ultimate goal is to improve balance, color, shape, and other aesthetic qualities, certain procedures may also work to restore the teeth and improve oral function, such as biting, chewing, and speaking abilities. An experienced dentist like Dr. Jeffrey Weller may combine one or more techniques to help patients achieve their smile goals.

The most common smile concerns 

Several types of cosmetic concerns may leave patients feeling self-conscious about their smiles. While some aspects are relatively minor, like slight chipping of the teeth, other imperfections significantly impact the quality of the smile, such as tooth misalignment. In general, many individuals in the Chicago and Hinsdale, IL, areas turn to Weller Dental for the following smile concerns:

  • Enamel wear or tooth erosion
  • Stained or discolored teeth
  • Crowded, crooked, or misaligned teeth
  • Gaps or wide spaces between teeth
  • Cracked, chipped, or misshapen teeth
  • Uneven or jagged teeth
  • Short, small, or narrow teeth

Explore five modern cosmetic dentistry options

The staff at Weller Dental has years of experience in creating brilliant smiles through cosmetic dentistry in Chicago. Dr. Weller is delighted to bring advanced dentistry techniques to personalizing the smiles of patients to meet individual preferences and goals. Some of the most popular dentistry treatments include the following:

1. Porcelain veneers

Capable of providing an instant smile transformation, porcelain veneers are superior-quality cosmetic restorations that cover the front surfaces of teeth to conceal a wide range of aesthetic flaws. Veneers are customized to create a uniform, balanced appearance in the smile zone while also transforming the look of damaged, slightly crooked, or gapped teeth into one of beauty and elegance.

2. Teeth whitening

Professional teeth whitening from Weller Dental is an effective way to brighten your smile by several shades. Teeth whitening gives you a gorgeous grin by dissolving yellow or brown stains on tooth enamel to reveal a more confident, youthful appearance. Through convenient Zoom in-office whitening treatments and custom take-home whitening kits, boosting the radiance of the smile is within easy reach.

3. Dental bonding and contouring

Dental bonding and contouring techniques can enhance the shape and shade of teeth appearing within the smile line. By using tooth-colored composite resin bonding material, we can lengthen, widen, lighten, and repair small aesthetic defects. Dr. Weller uses contouring procedures to smooth out rough, jagged, or uneven edges to create a balanced and attractive grin.

4. Invisalign® orthodontics

Teeth that are crooked, crowded, gapped, or misaligned often present more than a cosmetic issue. Invisalign orthodontics offers an extremely discreet and convenient way to straighten the smile and correct certain bite problems. Using clear, practically invisible aligners, Invisalign is a trusted and popular tool to gradually shift the teeth into place. This can give many of our patients the smile they’ve always wanted. 

5. Smile makeover

Patients who wish to address several smile concerns at once may be ideal candidates for a smile makeover with the skilled team at Weller Dental. A smile makeover is a personalized treatment plan consisting of two or more cosmetic dentistry procedures that work together to transform the look, feel, and (often) function of the smile. Thanks to Dr. Weller’s advanced skills, many patients can undergo a same-day smile makeover and begin to enjoy their brilliant new smiles right away.
