Libertyville Dental Associates has the right prescription when it comes to cosmetic dentistry. From porcelain veneers and cosmetic dental bonding, to tooth whitening and dental implants you are in good hands when you schedule a no obligation cosmetic dentistry consultation with Libertyville Dental Associates.
What is Cosmetic Dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry takes restorative dentistry to the next level with procedures that can completely alter a smile. For example, cosmetic dental crowns, using tooth colored materials, are called cosmetic dentistry as conventional crowns contain metal or porcelain to metal.
While the American Dental Association does not recognize cosmetic dentistry as a specialty, it really is. It takes continued education to place veneers and cosmetic dental crowns.
Libertyville Dental Associates have the cosmetic dentistry experience and expertise to give you a healthy and happy smile. When you work with a qualified cosmetic dentist, it makes all the difference in the world.

Your Cosmetic Dentistry Appointment
Before you can start having veneers placed or your teeth whitened, you will need to schedule a cosmetic dentistry appointment with Libertyville Dental Associates.
During your appointment, your teeth and gums are checked to make sure they are free from tooth decay and gum disease. If either is present, those issues must be addressed before proceeding with cosmetic dentistry.
If Libertyville Dental Associates determines you are in good health and ready for a new smile with cosmetic dentistry the two of you will discuss your options, how you envision your smile to look and your budget.
How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Take?
How long cosmetic dentistry takes is dependent on what types of cosmetic procedures you and Libertyville Dental Associates decide on. If you are having cosmetic dental bonding, it only takes a single dental visit in most cases. Chairside professional teeth whitening is the same.
If you opt for veneers or dental crowns, you will need two or sometimes three dental appointments. The first is for the tooth prep and the second is for placement. Sometimes your cosmetic dentist will schedule a third appointment for some types of cosmetic dentistry solutions.
Invisalign, the removable braces system, will take 12 to 18 months to complete while dental implants require 6 to 12 months of healing before artificial teeth placement.
The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
The team from Libertyville Dental cannot stress the importance of healthy teeth and gums. Straight teeth mean less chance of tooth decay while tooth replacements keep the rest of your smile healthy.
Cosmetic dentistry is one of the best things for confidence. People who are afraid to smile because of missing, chipped, or crooked teeth are often lacking self-esteem.
