Is Your Dentist an Artist?
Cosmetic dentistry is a scientific discipline, but it also involves artistry. Dr. James Fondriest, a Chicago cosmetic dentist, possesses the attention to detail and aesthetic eye of a true artist. His work is highly sought-after by people in Chicago and across the country.
Dr. Fondriest holds consultations with each patient to plan a smile makeover that will meet their requests and enhance their individual beauty. He offers a variety of cosmetic and restorative services, and he creates a custom treatment plan for every patient.
When Dr. Fondriest places porcelain crowns or veneers, he works with the patient (and his skilled ceramist) to pinpoint the right:
- Brightness: The color of your new smile will look natural, bright, and flattering with your skin tone and overall appearance.
- Texture: For instance, the patient can select a smooth, flawless texture or one that has minor imperfections, like natural teeth.
- Translucency: Natural tooth enamel is translucent (light can reflect through it), so opaque dental fittings look unnatural and obvious. The ceramist that Dr. Fondriest works with builds restorations with translucency that is virtually indistinguishable from real teeth.
Together, Dr. Fondriest and his ceramist take the raw material of an imperfect smile and refine its beauty. Whether they receive restorative treatment, cosmetic treatment, or both, Dr. Fondriest’s patients walk away with smiles that feel like unique works of art.
