Why More People Are Choosing Cosmetic Dentistry

Our teeth are small parts of the body’s much larger machine, but they are vital to our individual living in Oswego, Yorkville, Boulder Hill, Plainfield, Montgomery, Aurora or North Aurora (IL). They influence how we eat, how we speak and whether foreign agents such as bacteria can enter our bodies.

They also are major factors in how we look and how we present ourselves. We all know the appeal of a pleasant, attractive smile. A happy, welcoming facial expression with nice teeth does more than tell others how we feel – it also shines a light that can spread.

Variables such as diet, genetics, accidents, personal habits and dental hygiene can affect how our teeth appear. Regardless of what might cause imperfect teeth, modern cosmetic dentistry makes having healthier teeth and an engaging smile easier than ever.

New technology for cosmetic dentistry now allows dentists to attain the tooth structure and aesthetics we could once only hope for. Patients can fix chipped or broken teeth, brighten teeth that have dulled and straighten teeth that may have been unsightly for years. They can also achieve their goals in less time with greater comfort during the process.

Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry

In addition to an even more welcoming smile, cosmetic dentistry for patients in Oswego, Yorkville, Boulder Hill, Plainfield, Montgomery, Aurora and North Aurora restores teeth to their best form for greater function and health, including the ability to eat and talk with comfort.

Other assets of current cosmetic dentistry include:

enduring outcome. Depending on the type of treatment received, cosmetic dentistry patients can enjoy the results of their procedure for anywhere from months to a decade or longer.

enhanced oral healthcare. When teeth are chipped, cracked, broken or crooked, keeping them flossed and cleaned can be a challenge. Certain cosmetic dentistry procedures can notably improve the structure and shape of teeth for much easier dental hygiene.

quick recovery. Where some dental work can require extended time before a return to full comfort, many of today’s cosmetic dentistry procedures have minimal downtime, with some recovery periods as short as a few hours.

Cosmetic Dentistry: Types of Procedures

Just a few of the modern cosmetic procedures that benefit patients in Oswego, Yorkville, Boulder Hill, Plainfield, Montgomery, Aurora or North Aurora through advanced technology include:

porcelain crowns. These ceramic restorations are usually placed onto teeth that have become too degraded to be repaired with a simple filling. Covering the tooth’s complete chewing area, today’s porcelain crowns are often identical to natural teeth. In the hands of the right cosmetic dentist, they can truly become works of art.

porcelain veneers. To change a tooth’s color or shape, a thin shell of porcelain is bonded onto it. In contrast to porcelain crowns, porcelain veneers usually require very little tooth reduction before being placed. Many patients choose porcelain veneers to add appeal to their front teeth.

teeth bleaching. Very popular with people of all ages, bleaching lets teeth be lightened in different ways. The most common approach uses a precision-fitted tray and a concentrated bleaching gel placed in it. The tray is seated over the teeth, where it remains for a few hours per day. Whether worn during the day or at night, the bleaching tray contributes to a brighter, whiter smile.

same-day KöR whitening. For patients seeking immediate whitening instead of a steady, gradual approach, same-day bleaching can be achieved in one office visit under the dentist’s supervision. The whitening results are often dramatic.

enamel reshaping (enamoplasty). While today’s porcelain veneers, crowns or tooth-colored fillings provide excellent ways to beautify unsightly teeth, these treatments may not always be needed. Sometimes, teeth can be restored to their natural beauty through careful tooth reshaping, which is a selective sanding and polishing process that is painless, quick and affordable.

ClearCorrect: A popular alternative to traditional wires and brackets, ClearCorrect is a nearly invisible way to correct malocclusion. If a patient is a good candidate for clear aligners, the dentist will take photos and x-rays, use a scanner or impressions to capture the shape of the teeth and submit the prescription to ClearCorrect. The cosmetic dentist will then customize a series of aligners for the teeth the patient wishes to move. The patient will wear the aligners for at least 22 hours per day until the treatment is done.

Our family needed to find a new dentist since ours retired. We were going to him for over 35 years so picking a new office was a little nerve racking. From the very beginning the office made us feel very welcome. My children were very nervous at first but the moment the hygienists called their names the nerves faded since they were both very warm, friendly and caring. They were even comfortable enough to go by themselves.
I also had Amy for my appointment the next week and she was excellent. Also, Dr. Milazzo was great as well. I highly recommend Oswego Dental Group!

Dr. Milazzo was amazing with my 7 year old daughter. She got her first filling done and I loved that he spoke to HER (as the patient) and not just me. He showed her what everything did and sounded like before he started. He also explained what everything was that was going in her mouth. I was very impressed with how everything went! The dental hygienists are also amazing!

Dr Milazzo, Sally and the whole staff are the best. THE BEST. I was a mess and had been in pain for a long time before finally finding Dr. Milazzo. I spent a lot of time and a lot of money going to another dentist that just kept making everything worse…I was literally living on protien drinks because it hurt too much to chew. It took a little time (I needed a lot of work done) but Dr Milazzo fixed everything and I can finally eat again. I’m forever grateful for Oswego Dental Group and would without hesitation recommend them.

Best dentist experience. Everyone from the receptionist to Dr Milazzo and Dr Macdonald are very friendly. Pam is an amazing dental hygienist. She is absolutely fantastic. Extremely thorough and friendly. I’m sure everyone is great as well but I’ve only had the pleasure of having my teeth cleaned by Pam and have no need to search elsewhere. Thanks everyone at Oswego Dental Group for making my dental visit a good one.
