Cosmetic Dentistry in Libertyville
Are you looking for a brighter, more beautiful smile? If so, look no further than Lake Forest Dental Arts. Dr. James Fondriest, your Libertyville dentist, can enhance your teeth and gums in a variety of ways. From teeth whitening and cosmetic bonding to gum lifts and porcelain veneers, we can design a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your goals. Don’t worry if you’re not sure which to choose or what each entails. Dr. Fondriest and his friendly, compassionate staff will work with you to determine your wants, needs, and desires, and be honest as to whether or not they can attain them. Some people have expectations that exceed reason, but at Lake Forest Dental Arts they will guide you every step of the way to a realistic and beautiful result.
Whether it’s a brighter smile you are looking for or a complete smile makeover, the first step is to meet with Dr. Fondriest and his staff to share your goals and your idea of your dream smile. During this meeting they will strive to understand your goals completely and discuss available treatment options, costs, and procedures. With this knowledge you will be better able to make the right decisions for you, both financially and otherwise. When it comes to whitening or bleaching, your Libertyville dentist recommends a home bleaching treatment called Nite White Excel 3. Lake Forest Dental does not offer in-office bleaching because it results in dehydration of the dentition and can lead to irritation of the pulp and gingival tissue. In addition to take-home bleaching, Dr. Fondriest can perform cosmetic bonding procedures or place dental veneers to attain a whiter smile.
Every dentist can perform cosmetic treatments. But not all dentists have the same level of training as Dr. Fondriest. As a board certified general dentist and skilled artist, he can:
- hide stains and imperfections
- lengthen worn teeth
- improve the shape of teeth
- hide gaps between teeth
- fix chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
- hide craze lines
- and much more
Dr. Fondriest offers a variety of treatments to meet his patients’ needs. Cosmetic bonding is quick, easy, and economical. Treatment for two or three teeth can be performed in one visit. Dental veneers can be placed in two visits and requires a bit of enamel removal and dental impressions which are then sent to the lab for custom fabrication of the veneers. With Dr. Fondriest’s artistic attention to detail, the final product with either treatment will be stellar.
Restorative Dentistry with an Artistic Touch
In dentistry, restorative and cosmetic treatments have different, distinct purposes. While restorative dentistry focuses on repairing or replacing teeth, cosmetic dentistry aims to enhance the overall aesthetics of your smile. Dr. Fondriest, your Glencoe dentist, believes that the two do not have to be exclusive. Using the highest-quality dental materials and most innovative techniques, Dr. Fondriest offers restorative dentistry with aesthetics in mind. Therefore, no matter what treatment you require for optimal oral health, rest assured you will also leave our office with a brighter, whiter, more dazzling smile.
