At Lake Forest Dental Arts, we strive to provide the dental techniques necessary to boost the appearance of a patient’s smile. We offer the latest in cosmetic and restorative dentistry. In today’s blog, your Chicago dentist, Dr. James Fondriest, answers common questions patients often ask about our dental procedures.
Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Does Dr. Fondriest offer professional teeth whitening?
Answer: Yes. Your Chicago IL cosmetic dentist offers two forms of convenient at-home whitening. Both use custom-made whitening trays and special bleaching solutions. The first, Day White Excel 3, requires the patient to wear the tray daily for certain amount of time each day. The second, Nite White Excel 3, involves wearing the tray while sleeping. In as little two weeks, both systems can brighten your smile.
Question: What are veneers?
Answer: Veneers are thin shells of dental porcelain placed on the front teeth. Porcelain veneers require the removal of a small layer of enamel in order to place. No-prep veneers don’t require the loss of enamel. Both systems can mask permanent stains, correct the appearance of misalignment, close gaps between teeth, and repair cracked, chipped, and worn down teeth.
Question: What happens if I lose a tooth?
Answer: When you lose a tooth, the health and appearance of your smile is hindered. In order to return your smile to full function and beauty, Dr. Fondriest offers dental implants. A biocompatible post is inserted into the jawbone. The implant post bonds with the jawbone tissue, anchoring it into place. Each implant is topped with a natural looking crown, restoring your smile. Implants can replace a single tooth or secure a full set of dentures.
