The modern dental patient is discerning, informed, and careful about his or her smile. At Arlington Heights Smiles, we recognize this, and we understand that many of our patients have been to other dentists for consultations. Cosmetic dentistry can have a significant impact on your image, so choosing the right cosmetic dentist is vital to a successful treatment outcome. Many of our patients, like Katelyn, (pictured right) chose our ArlingtonHeights cosmetic dentist, Dr. Brent Engelberg, after consulting several other dentists. Watch her testimonial video below to find out why.
Exceptional Patient Comfort and High Quality Dentistry
At Arlington Heights Smiles, our cosmetic dental services are a step above the rest not only because of our focus on patient comfort, but also because of our commitment to high quality dental work. We want our patients to feel completely informed and knowledgeable about their treatment before we even begin the procedure. For Katelyn, this meant a discussion about color matching.
Dental Bonding and Teeth Whitening
Dr. Engelberg restored the dental bonding on one of Katelyn’s front teeth using specific color matching methods. He explained to Katelyn that after the dental bonding was placed, the dental restoration cannot be whitened. Katelyn choose to undergo teeth whitening before her dental bonding so that her new smile could look even whiter than before.
Natural-Looking Smile Makeovers
Matching two front teeth is imperative to the natural appearance of a patient’s smile. That’s why Dr. Engelberg used several different types of dental bonding, and color matching strategies to match every detail of Katelyn’s natural tooth. This is an example of the meticulous work involved in high-end cosmetic dentistry that makes all the difference for your smile makeover. Read more »
