What is the Right Shade for Your Smile?
A bright, gorgeous smile can boost your confidence. At Lake Forest Dental Arts, Dr. James Fondriest understands what a beautiful smile means to our patients. Which is why we offer state-of-the-art cosmetic dental procedures to transform your smile. In today’s blog, your Lake Forest dentist, Dr. Fondriest, explains the importance of proper shading for rejuvenating smiles.
The Importance of Shading
At Lake Forest Dental Arts, we believe in offering minimally invasive cosmetic restorations using an artistic touch. Your dental work should complement your natural facial features, enhancing your appearance. A major component of our cosmetic work involves proper shading. We want all of our dental procedures to blend seamlessly with your smile. Dr. Fondriest always strives to ensure your new dental restorations match your natural smile. During your initial consultation, Dr. Fondriest will perform a thorough oral examination and sit down with you to discuss your smile goals. Dr. Fondriest will then offer the cosmetic procedure that will best address your dental needs.
Popular Cosmetic Techniques
Many of our cosmetic procedures involve steps to provide accurate shading, including:
- Cosmetic Bonding: With cosmetic bonding, Dr. Fondriest can fill cavities and repair cracked or chipped teeth. Made of a special composite resin, cosmetic bonding is shaded to match your natural teeth. Dr. Fondriest simply applies several thin layers of resin to the teeth, and then sculpts the material as it cures.
- Porcelain Veneers: Veneers are thin shells of special dental porcelain that Dr. Fondriest applies to the front of a patient’s teeth. Veneers are custom-made and shaded, masking stains, hiding misalignment, and repairing damaged teeth.
- Porcelain Crowns: Crowns are caps that fit completely over an affected tooth. Using esthetically pleasing ceramic, our crowns look like natural teeth. Porcelain crowns protect and preserve your teeth, providing seamless smile repair.
