Excellent. Very caring Dr. Kumar is Gentle and a well educated man. He discovered things that my prior dentist missed and I always knew there was an issue. I did not have to tell him, one look and he gasped with surprise that I have had this issue for a while. They are very attentive and I will not be surprised if his practice grows leaps and bounds if they continue with this level of service. Good staff and overall clean and pleasant office with both Suburban and Downtown location in Vernon Hills which is both convenient to get too. ~ Bd
Every person deserves to feel great when he or she smiles and speaks to others. There should not be the inclination to hide teeth behind the hand or closed lips. In fact, doing so has an impact on personal interaction, making you seem distant, unfriendly, or shy. To enjoy your healthiest smile is to love what you see when you look in the mirror. With cosmetic dentistry treatment, this is a real possibility.
Our team handles cosmetic treatments with great skill and compassion, understanding that the goal of any procedure is to enhance the smile while maintaining a perfectly natural appearance. Some of the ways in which we can help you address the cosmetic concerns you have include:
Tooth-colored fillingsComposite resin fillings are nice because of their natural appearance in the smile, but this type of filling is also extremely durable and resistant to fracture. Used for small to mid-sized restoration, a composite filling is able to withstand the pressure that takes place when chewing occurs. This type of filling is conservative, as well, requiring the removal of less tooth structure than other materials.
Porcelain inlays and onlaysPorcelain dental inlays and onlays are more conservative than preparing an entire tooth for a crown, and more acceptable when removal of tooth structure is more than 1/3 of the tooth. Inlays and onlays are more durable than tooth-colored fillings and can last longer since they are custom fabricated.
Porcelain veneersDental veneers are a popular cosmetic treatment because these thin sheets of material can cover teeth to mask the appearance of chips, cracks, broken teeth, turned teeth, discoloration, gaps, and other cosmetic issues. We custom-make veneers using porcelain, as this material is most similar to natural tooth enamel. Due to the inherent similarities, porcelain veneers can be placed on a single tooth, a few teeth, or all of the teeth that show when you smile. In any situation, this form of cosmetic enhancement will look like it has belonged to you forever.
Cosmetic dentistry is not simply a list of services designed to whiten, straighten, or cover teeth. This area of our practice is filled with highly advanced techniques, tools, and materials that require precision and great attention to detail. When we enhance your smile, we think of it as a smile makeover. As such, we take aspects like complexion and facial contours into consideration when devising the optimal treatment plan to achieve your aesthetic goals. You deserve to love your smile.
