Your smile says quite a bit about you, but if yours is something you would rather not show off, call or click and schedule an appointment with the Glen Dental Center in Glenview. The Glen Dental Center has the expertise and the experience to help you decide what restorative or cosmetic dental procedures would be best for your particular needs.

Unfortunately, your baby teeth will not grow back, and let’s face it; a gap-toothed smile isn’t as adorable as it was when you were a toddler. If you are self-conscious about your smile because of stained, cracked, chipped, or missing teeth, Glen Dental Center can help.

When it comes to adult teeth, Glen Dental Center always prefers to save as much of the natural tooth as possible. However, if that isn’t plausible there are some other procedures that will help you smile again.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are used to replace a missing tooth. A dental bridge actually, “Bridges,” the gap between your teeth. Your dentist will attach a false tooth or false teeth to your surrounding teeth. Dental bridges have been used for decades and are quite successful.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the best replacement for missing teeth as they actually preserve the structure of your jawbone. A dental implant consists of titanium posts that act as artificial roots. The roots are inserted into your jawbone where it will integrate to your bone tissue. Once the implant has healed your dentist will place a crown or artificial tooth over the top of the artificial tooth root. Because dental implants integrate the bone tissue, your new teeth will be just as strong as your natural teeth.


Dentures are custom made and can consist of an entire set of lower or upper teeth or can be a partial denture with one or a few teeth. However, thanks to modern dentistry there are customized denture and dental implant combinations that are much more attractive and comfortable than conventional dentures.

Porcelain Veneers

If you are fortunate to have all of your teeth, but are not happy because of stains, chips, breaks or cracks talk to Glen Dental about porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers will cover stains that cannot be whitened with professional tooth whitening. Porcelain veneers can also give you that super star smile without costing you a fortune.
