Your smile tells the world you are a happy person, but if you are covering your grin with your hand, or have stopped smiling all together, it’s time for a smile makeover consultation with Dr. Jeffrey Gilmor from the Glen Dental Center in Glenview.

A smile makeover could be as simple as Zoom tooth whitening or something more time consuming such as dental implants. Whatever your needs, the Glen Dental Center in Chicago has the solutions for a new smile.

What Types of Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures are Available?

Dr. Gilmor explains that several cosmetic dental procedures are available for a smile makeover. If you are having a smile makeover, your cosmetic and restorative dentist in Chicago may recommend porcelain veneers, cosmetic dental bonding, and dental implants, tooth colored fillings or invisible braces. Whatever your needs, Dr. Gilmor has the means to take care of them.

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Take a Long Time?

Depending on your situation, you could have a new grin in a day. With Zoom!® professional tooth whitening all you need is an hour for a bright and beautiful smile. Cosmetic dental bonding also happens in a single dental appointment depending on how many teeth you are having restored.

Dental crowns take up to three dental appointments as do porcelain veneers. If you are a good candidate for dental implants and considering the procedure, you can expect to wait up to a year for your crowns to be placed, as the implant surgery needs to heal first. If a sinus lift or bone grafting is needed, the healing process could take longer.

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?

Again, it depends on what you are having done and what type of materials your dentist in Chicago is using. According to your dentist in Chicago, porcelain veneers last longer than cosmetic dental bonding. Dental implants can last the rest of your life while dentures will need to be replaced.
