Dental Planning

At Lake Forest Dental Arts, we provide a variety of cosmetic dental services to meet the needs of our patients. Whether someone is unhappy with their smile or has serious dental problems that require immediate repair, Dr. Fondriest approaches each case with the eye of an artist. He is committed to the beauty of your smile, not only as a doctor, but also as someone who understands the importance of looking your best.

The Value of an Artist’s Touch

Artistic smile design goes beyond a simple cosmetic procedure. Dr. Fondriest seeks to encapsulate the dreams, hopes, and aspirations of a patient through his work. This is no empty goal, either. He thoroughly documents the existing facial asymmetries, lip drape and movement patterns, teeth display during speech, and every smile variation. He uses these techniques to inform the patient best about how alteration to the teeth and gums can change the appearance of his or her entire face, or “picture-frame for the smile.”

Quality Work, from Start to Finish

Dr. Fondriest works with a careful eye for esthetic detail, after consultation with the patient on all of the circumstances surrounding his or her cosmetic needs. He pays close attention to artistically mimicking the look and feel of natural teeth. For example, natural teeth are highly translucent. The nature of this characteristic is unique to every patient, and Dr. Fondriest takes care to match translucency with the skilled use of quality porcelain veneers. He works closely with a handpicked laboratory technician to create each restoration, ensuring the accurate completion of his vision from start to finish.
