If your old dental restorations could use some help it’s time to call Dr. Jeffrey Gilmor. Your dentist in Glenview has the skills and the expertise to put a smile back on your face. The dental bonding that you had placed a decade ago may have looked great in its time, but after so many years, it will begin to show its age. Thankfully, cosmetic dental bonding can be replaced in a single dental appointment. However, if you want a more permanent solution, you may want to consider porcelain veneers.

Decades ago, only those with a big bank account could afford porcelain veneers. It was rare that the average Joe could afford cosmetic dentistry. Fast forward to the 21st century where porcelain veneers, dental bonding and other types of cosmetic dentistry procedures are available to everyone, but it’s not just the esthetic value that is gained from cosmetic dentistry.

If you have a tipped, crooked, or rotated tooth or teeth, you will know how frustrating it can be to brush and floss. If your front tooth overlaps its neighbor, it could be impossible to reach those places that cosmetic dentistry could fix.

With porcelain veneers and other types of cosmetic dentistry, such as clear braces, you could live a healthier life with daily brushing and flossing. Once you have a straight smile you will be amazed at how easy it is to practice good oral hygiene.

Deciding between dental bonding restoration or porcelain veneers can be difficult. On one hand, veneers will resist staining and last longer than dental bonding, while on the other hand veneers are permanent, as Dr. Gilmor will need to remove part of your enamel to assure a good veneer fit and placement.

If your old restorations are causing you anxiety, possible pain, or even problems when you talk and chew, it’s time to call your dentist in Chicago Dr. Jeffrey Gilmor from Glen Dental in Glenview. Dr. Gilmor can repair and restore your old restorations with cosmetic dentistry and restoration procedures that will have you smiling again. Call or click today.
