The holidays are just around the corner and if you want to show off your smile it’s time to schedule an appointment with your dentist in Glenview.

While not everyone is born with a perfect smile, some cosmetic dentistry procedures will give you a beautiful smile. Best of all, some of those treatments only take a single dental appointment.

According to Dr. Jeffrey Gilmore from the Glen Dental Center in Glenview, you don’t have to wait months for the perfect grin.

Professional Teeth Whitening with Zoom!®

Still holding the top spot as the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure in the world, professional tooth whitening with Zoom!®

takes one dental appointment and can lighten your teeth up to ten shades.

This type of procedure is perfect if you can’t wait two or three weeks for a whiter smile. Used on its own or with custom-made tooth whitening trays, Zoom!® really does work but only on natural teeth. Consequently, if you have restored teeth, no amount of tooth whitening product will brighten your smile.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding and Cosmetic Dentistry

A less expensive cosmetic dentistry alternative, dental bonding is completed in a one dental appointment and is not as invasive as porcelain veneers or cosmetic dental crowns.

Dr. Verena Phillips explains that cosmetic dental bonding works well on chips, cracks, and teeth that cannot be lightened with professional tooth whitening. Dental bonding can also be reversed unlike porcelain veneers and dental crowns, which require some removal of the natural tooth.

If you have teeth that are too short or have a small space between your teeth, ask your cosmetic dentist in Chicago if cosmetic dental bonding is right for you.

A New Smile in Glenview with Cosmetic Dentistry

Of course, if you have your heart set on porcelain veneers or cosmetic dental crowns there is still plenty of time for a new smile before those holiday parties.
