Cosmetic Dentistry

Oakbrook Terrace Dentist

At A. Garrett Berley Jr., DDS, we provide a variety of cosmetic dental solutions to enhance the appearance of your smile and overall confidence. Cosmetic dentistry may also improve the overall function of your mouth and teeth.

We offer the following cosmetic dentistry treatments:

• Porcelain Veneers
• Teeth Whitening
• Bonding

Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers may be recommended for those who are interested in restoring the color and appearance of their teeth. Veneers can be used to:

• Improve the look of your teeth due to stains
• Re-shape teeth
• Close gaps between teeth
• Fix teeth that are chipped, fractured or broken

Veneers are custom-made to fit over your natural teeth. In order to be a candidate for veneers, the foundation of your natural teeth must be strong and healthy. The results from veneers can drastically and instantly improve the appearance of your smile.

Teeth Whitening
Whitening is a great option for you if you have dull, discolored or stained teeth. It can also be used to help reverse effects of aging or stains from food and tobacco. Teeth whitening is an excellent way to restore your smile, making you instantly appear healthy and youthful.

We offer a variety of teeth whitening options, including at-home whitening kits. Custom fitted trays allow you to maintain a whiter smile with a safe and professional strength whitening agent. The custom fitted trays allow for a precise application of whitening gel to avoid damage to surrounding soft tissue. With this solution, it can take between a couple of days to a couple of weeks to achieve the desired effect, depending on your needs.

Bonding
Bonding is the application of tooth-colored composite resin to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. It can be used:

• To correct cracks or gaps in teeth
• To cover up stains or discolored teeth
• As a filling after a cavity has been removed

Composite resin is used on the affected tooth or teeth. It is molded and sculpted over an adhesive gel that is place on the tooth. After the resin has been applied, an LED light is used to harden the resin. It is then polished to give you a fresh, new smile.

Bonding is a safe, affordable and aesthetically pleasing solution for many dental problems.
