A new year represents a new beginning for many people. Each January, you may hear plans others make for healthier living, spending money in a wiser fashion, or being more productive at work. If your teeth’s appearance make you years uncomfortable, consider a new smile this year. Dr. James Fondriest, your Lake Forest cosmetic dentist, offers a range of services to correct dental damage and decay, or improve your smile.
People often resolve to feel better about themselves in a new year. If you have damaged or decayed teeth, seeing a cosmetic dentist like Dr. Fondriest can help you see yourself in a new way. Cosmetic bonding can restore a chipped tooth, as can a porcelain or porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crown. Which option you choose depends on the severity of tooth damage, but all offer natural-looking restoration. We color-match bonding material to the rest of your tooth’s natural color. Together with patients, we work to also match the color and texture of porcelain restorations to surrounding teeth. Our PFM crowns utilize metal in their construction, but do not create unsightly black lines where gums meet teeth, like traditional metal crowns.
A Straighter, Whiter Smile
If your teeth are intact and healthy, you can take advantage of cosmetic dentistry to improve your smile. Porcelain veneers provide a solution to crooked teeth, and they can make your teeth appear whiter if you have tooth stains. After reshaping front teeth, Dr. Fondriest applies the hand-crafted porcelain shells permanently. Like porcelain crowns, veneers match the color of natural teeth and resist staining. Veneers can also correct tooth damage, like chipped front teeth. For a whiter smile, Dr. Fondriest offers Nite White Excel 3, an at-home whitening treatment.
