A Summertime Smile Makeover

by | Jul 17, 2015 | Blog

We love summertime in Glen Ellyn, IL. There’s so much to do and so many people to spend time with! It’s a great season for visiting, taking it easy, and making changes. Patients come into our office during summertime and want to transform their smile to match their happy, sunny mood!

At Smile Glen Ellyn, we are always ready to take on a smile makeover challenge! Our patients love to see their look transformed by quality cosmetic dental care, and our staff enjoys the process of giving a patient exactly what they came in for.

Use what’s left of this summer to create your own smile makeover plan, and let us get to work! By the time the leaves are changing color and falling off the trees, you’ll be well on your way to the smile of your dreams! Depending on the severity of your current smile, you could be completely done with your cosmetic work! First, you have to decide what needs to be done!

What’s Missing in Your Smile?

The first thing we will ask you is to try to figure out exactly what it is about your smile that you don’t love. Why are you seeking a smile makeover in the first place? It can be difficult to self-evaluate, which is why we have put together a set of questions to help you think through the different aspects of your smile. This will help you come up with a list of requests so that we can do the best job possible for you! Take a look at our cosmetic smile questionnaire before you continue to solutions.

Changing the Color of Your Smile

The most common cosmetic request we get is for teeth whitening. With age comes discolored teeth, and discolored teeth are embarrassing! You don’t feel like you can smile freely when your teeth are not a pleasant shade of white. We have whitening solutions here at Smile Glen Ellyn.

Whitening Services
Any way you want to whiten, we offer it at our office. If you prefer to whiten at home, we have take-home kits you can use for safe, effective whitening. If you prefer to have your whitening done quickly in our office, we have several options for you to choose from! We even offer a whitening for life program that allows you to receive whitening kits as long as you maintain your routine cleaning appointments.

Changing the Shape of the Smile

Having beautifully white teeth is nothing if you aren’t happy with the shape of your teeth! We generally want our teeth to be uniform and balanced from tooth to tooth. If one tooth is uneven or misshapen, your entire smile will make you feel self-conscious! We have quick and effective solutions that will transform your smile without any discomfort or damage to your natural teeth.

Bonding – Cosmetic bonding is a fantastic way to transform your teeth. The bonding material can be shaped around your tooth or teeth to correct chips, gaps, cracks, and uneven teeth. Bonding doesn’t require multiple appointments, and the process is completely comfortable!

Lumineers – Lumineers are a step up from cosmetic bonding. This form of thin, prepless veneer can be shaped and fitted to your teeth very quickly. It requires very little prep to your teeth, so you are more comfortable and your teeth are healthier! Lumineers can completely transform the shapes of your teeth to give you the look you’re dreaming of!

Changing the Alignment of the Smile

The alignment of your teeth can be a cosmetic issue, but it is more often a matter of having a healthy smile. Teeth that are misaligned are more difficult to keep clean, and they are more likely to cause issues for your TMJ (temporomandibular joint). It is important that we find a solution that will get your teeth back to their rightful place!

Invisalign – Invisalign is a fantastic approach to quick, adult braces. These clear aligners will fit comfortably over your teeth so that your treatment is just that: yours. No one else will notice! In a matter of months, you’ll have a beautiful, healthy smile once again.

Six Month Smiles – For teeth that are misaligned in the front of your mouth, we recommend Six Month Smiles. This quick and discreet treatment can completely change the look of your smile without messing with the bigger, harder-to-move teeth in the back. Your complete treatment will be done in 3-9 months.
