Cosmetic Dentistry

Teeth that are crooked, stained, or chipped can make you feel self-conscious.

Cosmetic dentistry can address these aesthetic concerns and restore your confidence.

Premier Dental & Implant Center in Orland Park, IL, offers several cosmetic dentistry treatments to help you achieve a pristine smile.


What is Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is a type of dentistry that focuses on the appearance of your teeth, mouth, and gums. Cosmetic treatments such as veneers and teeth whitening address various cosmetic concerns to enhance the overall appearance of your smile.

Cosmetic Dentistry  Can Redefine Your Smile

Dental solutions like braces and dental bonding can correct and conceal flaws in your teeth, giving you the confidence to show off your smile. Here's what orthodontics can do for our patients:
Gapped smile with crooked teeth
Before Braces Before braces, this patient had prominent spacing issues and tooth gaps.
A straight seamless smile following braces and dental bonding
After Braces Notice how well-aligned this smile looks after braces.

I had to get a filling on my LL and was able to see Dr Amy for it! As someone who has dental phobia, she was so patient and gentle with me. It didn’t take long and even the numbing wore off in a timely manner. Great assistant, great doctor, and great environment. Will return :)

Our Featured Cosmetic Treatments

Veneers

A veneer is a porcelain shell placed over the front surface of a tooth to enhance its appearance. Our dentist uses veneers to conceal chips, cracks, and discolored teeth. This dental treatment can also give misshapen teeth a new look, matching them with the surrounding teeth.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening with our dentists can remove stains and discoloration more effectively than over-the-counter teeth whitening products. A powerful LED lamp activates the whitening gel, producing dazzling results after just one treatment. Our dentistry treatment has proven results, with teeth becoming up to eight shades lighter after just one visit.

Traditional Braces

Traditional braces are a time-tested method for correcting misalignment and creating a straight, stunning smile. This dental procedure can also fix gapped teeth, crowded teeth, overbites, and underbites. If left alone, misaligned teeth can cause teeth grinding and temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), leading to damaged teeth and jaws.

Explore Braces

Invisalign

The nearly invisible aligners used in Invisalign® treatment straighten your teeth discreetly. The clear aligners are worn 20-22 hours a day and are removed when eating and when brushing or flossing your teeth.

Dental Crowns

Trauma, decay, and everyday wear can leave the tooth structure damaged. Dental crowns are protective caps that can restore the appearance of a tooth. They can be precisely color-matched to your natural tooth shade, blending seamlessly with the rest of your smile.

What About Missing Teeth? Dental Implants Can Fill in the Gaps

If you are missing teeth, it's likely your biggest cosmetic dental concern. Having gaps in your smile can take a significant toll on your self-image, not to mention your ability to eat and speak comfortably. Sound familiar? Dental implants may be just what you need.

Dental implants are prosthetic tooth roots. They anchor in the jaw and provide stable, durable support for restorations like crownsbridges, or dentures. Our restorations are made of premium materials that balance strength, functionality, and appearance. They are built to last for years and can be shaded to match your precise natural tooth color, guaranteeing a natural look in your smile.

Dental implants and restorations offer wonderful cosmetic benefits, but their oral health benefits are also remarkable. Because implants are anchored in the jawbone, they can provide important stimulation that keeps the bone healthy and strong. This helps prevent issues like shifting teeth, further tooth loss, and changes to your facial shape due to jaw atrophy.

At Premier Dental & Implant Center in Orland Park, you can take advantage of dental implant options for all degrees of tooth loss. Whether you're missing one tooth or all your teeth, we can get you back on track to a beautiful and fully functional smile with dental implants.

Concerned About Costs?

Because dental insurance plans do not cover cosmetic treatments, some patients may feel that these services are inaccessible. We do not want financial barriers to prevent patients from achieving a stunning smile. Our practice accepts CareCredit®, which allows patients to pay for their treatment in low-interest monthly installments.

Candidates for Cosmetic Dentistry

Not everyone is an immediate candidate for cosmetic dentistry. During your initial consultation at our office in Orland Park, your dentist will examine your mouth and discuss your goals to determine if cosmetic treatments are right for you. Good candidates for cosmetic dentistry include patients who:

Are in Good Oral Health

You must be in good oral health and free from gum disease and tooth decay. This is to ensure a healthy foundation for your cosmetic treatments. Our dentists offer comprehensive dental services to help you qualify for cosmetic dentistry treatment.

 Have Cosmetic Dental Issues

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on the appearance of your smile. Patients with issues that impact their oral health and function need to undergo restorative treatment before undergoing cosmetic enhancements to their smile.

Are Ready to Invest in Their Smiles

Dental insurance plans do not cover cosmetic dentistry treatments. However, we accept financing options to help make cosmetic treatments more affordable and accessible.

Nervous About Visiting the Dentist? Add Calming Sedation to Your Cosmetic Plan

It's completely natural to feel anxious about going to the dentist, whether due to fear of pain, difficulty sitting still, or many other common reasons. In fact, studies have shown that anywhere from 50 to 80% of Americans experience some level of dental anxiety. However, thanks to sedation dentistry, you can say goodbye to fear and discomfort.

We offer oral conscious sedation and IV sedation, both of which bring about feelings of deep relaxation that help treatments fly by. In combination with local anesthetic, it's likely you won't feel a thing as your dentist gets to work on your cosmetic enhancements. 

Though most cosmetic dentistry treatments are gentle and minimally invasive, we'll be happy to provide sedation for any procedure. To learn more about how sedation can improve your treatment experience, book a consultation at our Orland Park office. You can contact us online or call us at:

I recently had a complicated Dental implant procedure performed by Dr. Akhras, and I couldn't be happier with the results. Dr. Akhras and his team were incredibly professional, knowledgeable, and attentive throughout the entire process. They took the time to explain the procedure and answer all my questions, which put me at ease. The whole procedure was painless and went smoothly.

Dr. Lagesse is everything you look for in a dentist, friendly, always smiling and outgoing, makes sure your comfortable, taking some extra time to make sure it’s just right, I love how she doesn’t rush it at all.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry

Do cosmetic dentistry treatments hurt?

No. Some treatments, such as teeth whitening and porcelain veneers, are practically painless. For treatments that require significant alteration of the tooth, like dental crowns, your Orland Park dentist will numb the area first to ensure you are completely comfortable before your procedure begins. We also offer sedation options for an added level of comfort for those who need it. 

How much do cosmetic dentistry treatments cost?

This will depend on a variety of factors, such as which dentistry procedure you have received, how extensive your dental concern is, and if you require any preparatory treatments. For example, teeth whitening will cost less than porcelain veneers, and one veneer will cost less than multiple porcelain veneers. During your initial consultation at our Orland Park office, your dentist will craft a custom treatment plan. We will then be able to provide you with an accurate quote so you can plan and budget.

How long will cosmetic dentistry treatments last?

This depends on the type of treatment you have received and how well you maintain your smile. With proper care and maintenance, porcelain veneers and dental crowns can last for up to 15 years or more. For those who undergo orthodontic treatment, if you wear your retainer, your results can last a lifetime.

Can I combine restorative and cosmetic dentistry treatments?

This depends. Before undergoing most cosmetic procedures, you must be free of oral health concerns such as tooth decay and gum disease. If you're concerned about the appearance of your smile but need restorative care, your dentist may be able to include cosmetic dentistry treatments as part of your complete restorative treatment plan to transform your smile.
