Our Extensive Cosmetic Dental Services

Our skilled cosmetic dentist provides many ways to help you achieve the smile you have always wanted. We take extra care to ensure our solutions use safe materials and tried-and-true techniques to deliver exceptional care you can trust. Our Arlington Heights cosmetic dentistry covers:

Reaching Your Cosmetic Goals Through Smile Makeovers

Smile makeovers provide the opportunity to achieve your healthiest and most appealing smile in a truly comprehensive way. This process involves a detailed consultation, exams, and precise planning to craft the right treatment strategy to meet your needs.

Your personalized smile makeover can combine a few or several services to address everything from tooth discoloration and decay to missing teeth and gum disease. This cosmetic treatment process is carefully designed to restore your dental appeal, function, and oral health.

Brightening Your Smile with Teeth Whitening

While teeth are strong, the enamel is porous. This means that dark foods and drinks can easily stain your teeth surfaces, causing discoloration over time. Foods such as tomato sauces and dark berries and beverages like coffee, red wine, soda, and tea are common staining culprits.

Professional teeth whitening treatments use powerful, specialty-grade solutions for lifting years' worth of staining. This popular cosmetic dentistry technique is designed to provide you with a bright and luminous smile in the safest and most effective ways possible.

Effective Opalescence® In-Office Whitening Treatment

At Arlington Comfort Dental, we offer comfortable treatment with Opalescence teeth whitening. This professional solution works by penetrating past your enamel and breaking up the pigments that cause discoloration.

We begin your cosmetic whitening treatment by making sure you're relaxing comfortably in the dental chair. Dr. Relias or a trusted team member applies the whitening gel to the surfaces of your teeth. Your gums and lips are protected by a special mouthpiece. Treatment often takes around 45 minutes, with the team applying the solution in three 15-minute increments. To safely speed up the process, we can use a special light to help activate and boost whitening.

Creating Drastic Change with Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are thin and durable shells, either made from top-quality porcelain or ceramic materials. This versatile cosmetic treatment works by enhancing your teeth's shape, size, and color when placed correctly. Veneers are highly personalized and crafted to your unique smile. Dr. Relias often uses them to address multiple issues at once.

With veneers, our Arlington Heights cosmetic dentist can address the following seven issues:

  • Severely discolored teeth
  • Chipped, cracked, and slightly damaged teeth
  • Short-looking or worn-down teeth
  • Irregularly shaped or uneven teeth
  • Sizable gaps between teeth
  • Slightly crooked teeth

Will My Dental Veneers Look Natural?

Absolutely! Dental veneers are renowned for their ability to look beautiful and completely natural. Our team begins treatment with a thorough consultation involving detailed discussions about your aesthetic needs and goals. We also utilize this time to document your preferences regarding your veneer shape, size, and shade. Additionally, we work closely with a trusted local lab for custom fabrication and staining of your veneers.

Our Quality Amalgam-Free Restorations

Amalgam (metal) fillings were a popular and reliable choice for repairing weak and damaged teeth in the past. These materials also have traces of potentially toxic substances like mercury and may cause allergic reactions. This component can irritate gums and other soft tissues when exposed to hot and cold temperature changes in foods and drinks.

Our cosmetic dentistry restorations, such as composite fillings and porcelain crowns, bridges, and dentures, are completely amalgam-free. This means they do not contain any mercury. Instead, we use safe and natural-looking materials that provide stunning results.

Replacing Your Teeth with Dental Implants

Dr. Relias and his team can rebuild your smile after tooth loss with dental implants. They are the only tooth replacement available that becomes a permanent part of the jaw. We provide dental implant placement and complete restoration at our Arlington Heights dental office.

Our solutions can replace one to all teeth lost. We even offer All-on-4, a system that uses four dental implants to replace an entire set of missing teeth. We also offer Teeth in a Day. This patented system can help you restore your smile in one day using four to six dental implants. Our cosmetic dentist uses four implants on your top jaw and four to six dental implants on your bottom jaw.

Improving & Protecting Your Gums

At Arlington Comfort Dental, we provide various treatments to keep your gums beautiful and healthy. Gum contouring is an effective cosmetic procedure for addressing a gummy-looking smile. Gummy smiles occur when gum tissue appears more prominent on your teeth, creating an unbalanced appearance. We can reshape excess or uneven gums using safe, gentle, and sterile techniques.

Sometimes, obtaining a beautiful and lasting smile means treating your gums for disease and infection. Our team provides periodontal care, such as scaling and root planing, to eliminate harmful plaque and tartar from above and below the gumline. If your needs are more complex, we'll refer you to a trusted periodontist located close by to ensure you receive the best care possible.

Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

One of the defining features of our dental office is clear and consistent communication. That's why our team is more than happy to answer your questions and give you the information you need to make confident oral health decisions. Some of the most frequently asked questions about our Arlington Heights cosmetic dentistry services include:

Will my teeth be sensitive after teeth whitening?

It's normal to feel tooth sensitivity immediately after in-office teeth whitening. However, you can rest assured that your sensitivity should go away after a few days.

We recommend that you brush and floss them as you would your natural teeth. Our team also advises you to avoid eating hard or crunchy foods like ice chips, popcorn, and nuts, as they can damage the surface of your veneers.

Dental implants are meant to last you a lifetime of functionality. However, it may be necessary for our cosmetic dentist to remove your implant-supported restoration for repair or replacement.
