Improving your smile with veneers can be a life-changing experience. From boosting your confidence to make face-to-face interactions more enjoyable to make you feel great about the way you look, veneers can give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Find out more about porcelain dental veneers and what they can do for you with Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi at Advance Family Dental Care in Naperville, IL.

What is a porcelain dental veneer?
A dental veneer is a thin shell of porcelain which fits over the surface of a tooth to modify its appearance. Veneers are customized for each tooth in a dental laboratory. Their design is based on a clay impression your cosmetic dentist takes of your mouth then sends to the laboratory. Technicians carefully handcraft each veneer, then color match them to your existing smile, ensuring a natural look and functional fit.

Can a porcelain dental veneer be replaced?
Patients considering dental veneers should also consider that they are not made to last a lifetime. However, a veneer can last upward of 20 years with the proper care. Following the American Dental Association’s recommended oral care routine of brushing twice a day and flossing once ensures that your teeth and veneers remain healthy and free of decay for years to come. Coupled with routine dental examinations and cleanings every six months, you may just keep these conditions at bay for life.

How cosmetic dentistry from your dentist in Naperville, IL, can transform your smile

Did you know that dental treatment can actually enhance your appearance? It’s true. In fact, there is an entire branch of dentistry dedicated to helping you look your best. It’s called cosmetic dentistry and it’s truly revolutionary. Gone are the days when dentistry was just about filling cavities. Modern dental procedures can revitalize your smile. Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi at Advance Family Dental Care in Naperville, IL, provides cosmetic dental services to remake your smile.

If you don’t like the color, shape, or features of individual teeth, or your entire smile, cosmetic dentistry can change it! This is just a small sample of the many procedures available to transform your smile from dull to dazzling!

Professional teeth whitening, a state-of-the-art procedure that can whiten your smile up to 8 shades whiter, with results that can last an amazing 5 years! The procedure is safe because the materials have been rigorously tested for safety and effectiveness and approved by the American Dental Association. You can achieve a dramatically whiter smile in as little as one hour, just in time for a special occasion when you need to look your best.

Cosmetic dental bonding, if you have chips, cracks, or fracture lines, or if you want to change the shape of your teeth to make your smile more harmonious; bonding uses composite, a liquid resin that can be matched to the color of your teeth, and sculpted to match the natural contours of your teeth. The composite is put in place as a liquid, and then hardened with a special ultraviolet light. Cosmetic dental bonding is virtually undetectable. All your friends will notice is your gorgeous smile.

Porcelain veneers, the procedure to choose if you want to dramatically enhance your smile and achieve a perfect smile that is uniquely yours. Porcelain veneers are thin laminates of beautiful, light-reflective porcelain that look just like tooth enamel. The veneers are cemented over the front surfaces of your teeth and are an excellent choice to hide problems like these:

  • Breaks, cracks, or fracture lines
  • Chips, tooth wear, or erosion
  • Gaps, spaces, or tooth overlap
  • Discolorations, stains, or uneven tooth color

Cosmetic dentistry can do a lot for your smile, and for your self-confidence. You deserve to show off your best possible smile, and cosmetic dentistry can help. For more information about cosmetic dental procedures and other dental services, call Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi at Advance Family Dental Care in Naperville, IL, today!

Teeth WhiteningTeeth whitening is a quick and effective cosmetic dentistry procedure that can benefit almost anyone. However, understanding the ins and outs of this treatment can help you determine if it is truly in your best interest. Find the answers to some teeth whitening FAQs and learn how cosmetic dentistry procedures from Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi at Advance Family Dental Care in Naperville, IL, can benefit you.

Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Teeth whitening uses chemical reactions between the discolorations on your teeth and the chemicals in the whitening gel to break the bonds between the molecules in the stain. This dissipates the molecules and allows them to scatter, lifting the color of the tooth. Your visit will take only about an hour, during which your dentist places the whitening gel onto the teeth. The gel remains on the teeth throughout the treatment. Some whitening systems use a special UV light to speed up and strengthen the process.

Is Teeth Whitening Safe?

Teeth whitening is a long-used cosmetic dentistry procedure. It has the FDA’s seal of approval and is considered safe, especially when monitored by your dentist. Though over-the-counter varieties of whitening systems are considered safe, they are not monitored by your dentist and cannot promise the same results.

Does Teeth Whitening Damage the Teeth?

There are some risks to teeth whitening treatments. However, whitening treatments monitored by your dentist have less of a risk of side effects than do-it-yourself options. In-office whitening procedures include separating the teeth from the oral tissues with a dental dam, which helps to decrease irritation or damage to the tissues. Your dentist can also monitor the strength of the whitening treatment to ensure that it is the best choice for you.

Teeth Whitening Treatments in Naperville, IL

If you think that you could benefit from teeth whitening, consult with your dentist to ensure that this is the best cosmetic dental procedure to achieve the results you want. In some cases, other treatments like dental veneers or crowns may be more suitable for your situation.

Porcelain VeneersVeneers are versatile in that they allow your cosmetic dentist to uniquely craft your smile to fit your face and personality. They are a way to fix the outer appearance of your teeth when other common treatments, like bleaching or bonding, don't help. Learn more about the versatility of veneers when you visit Advance Family Dental Care in Naperville, IL, for a cosmetic consultation.

Veneer Treatment
Some dental imperfections are irreversible and can't be repaired by simply realigning a tooth or applying a whitener. For example, some patients have lost too much dental enamel over time for bonding to help. Others have deeply ingrained dental staining that doesn’t respond to even the strongest bleaching products. In these cases, the solution may be to simply cover the imperfections with a uniform set of veneers. They are wafer-like dental devices that are individually bonded to the front of the teeth after a small amount of enamel is removed. 

Veneer Versatility
Because veneers are custom designed and made by your Naperville, IL, cosmetic dentist, they allow you to completely change your smile. Short, chipped, rough-edged teeth are magically changed into longer, fuller, whiter, well-contoured teeth that are perfectly aligned. You get a second chance at a smile that you can feel proud of, and all it takes is a few weeks.

Veneer Care
The way you care for your new smile will determine how long it continues to look good after a cosmetic veneer treatment. Observe these veneer and tooth care tips to keep your smile in good condition for as along as possible:

  • Brushing the veneer and tooth surfaces (front and back) thoroughly after meals will help keep them clean and firmly attached.
  • Protect your gum health with regular flossing and professional cleanings (root planing around the gumline if necessary).
  • Preserve the integrity of the veneer devices by wearing a protective mouth guard if you clench or grind involuntarily.

Call for Veneers
Veneers can produce magical results for your smile no matter how imperfect your teeth look at the moment. Call (630) 358-9899 today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi, a cosmetic dentist helping patients makeover their smiles in Naperville, IL.

Bonding and Cosmetic Contouring Dental ConsultationHave you put off improving your smile because you assumed it would require extensive dental work? Although some issues do require complicated procedures, many minor flaws can be corrected with a simple treatment known as bonding and cosmetic contouring. Naperville, IL, cosmetic dentist Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi of Advance Family Dental Care provides the treatments and procedures you need to keep your smile healthy and attractive.

What happens during bonding and cosmetic contouring?

During the contouring phase of the treatment, your Naperville dentist uses a sanding drill or laser to remove tiny areas of your tooth enamel. Contouring improves small imperfections and can also be used to change the length or shape of teeth. The treatment is painless and requires no anesthesia.

After your dentist contours your teeth, bonding may be used to enhance their appearance. During the treatment, he applies a small amount of a putty-like material called composite resin to your teeth. Composite resin can be manipulated into any shape needed, yet bonds to the teeth when it's hardened with a curing light.

Can bonding and cosmetic contouring improve my smile?

Your dentist may recommend the treatment if:

  • You have chips at the bottom of your teeth. In many cases, you may only need contouring to smooth away small chips. If the chips are a little larger, bonding may be used to fill them in.
  • Your teeth are a little bumpy. Teeth aren't always perfectly smooth. If you have noticeable bumps or pits in your teeth, contouring and bonding offer a simple way to improve your smile.
  • The edges of your teeth overlap. Overlapping edges not only affect your appearance but also trap cavity-causing plaque. Cosmetic contouring removes the edges in seconds.
  • Your teeth are crooked. Although you'll need braces if you have an orthodontic issue, cosmetic contouring and bonding is an excellent solution of one or two teeth are crooked or unusually shaped.
  • One of your teeth is longer than the others. Contouring can help shorten teeth are too long.
  • Your bite has changed. Your teeth can move as you grow older, which can affect the way your teeth fit together. If your problem is minor, your dentist can use contouring to improve your bite.

Enhance your appearance with cosmetic contouring and bonding! Call Naperville, IL, cosmetic dentist Dr. Pirooz Zomorrodi of Advance Family Dental Care at (630) 358-9899 to schedule your appointment.
