Cosmetic Dentistry

At The Waters Dental Group, we can take your smile from something that is holding you back to something that you are proud to show off. Your smile is the first thing that people see, and it needs to be a reflection of you and your personality. Advances in cosmetic dentistry technology allow us to create the smile you’ve always wanted. Call our office today at (815) 786-2146 to schedule an appointment.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is used for a number of dental treatments including filling cavities, repairing cracks and chips, closing gaps between teeth, and repairing the worn-down edges of teeth. A putty-like composite resin is applied directly to the tooth and then sculpted and shaped to meet the aesthetic needs of that particular patient. A high intensity light is then used to cure and harden each layer of composite material until the tooth is fully shaped.

Veneers

Dental veneers are used to transform crooked, gapped, severely discolored, or chipped teeth into a straight, white smile. There are two different methods of dental veneer application: Porcelain and minimal prep veneers.

The application of traditional porcelain veneers does require the removal of the enamel layer of the tooth, which does make this an irreversible procedure. Minimal prep veneers, on the other hand, are bonded to the existing tooth with adhesives and thus do not require as much preparation or modification of the existing tooth.

Teeth Whitening

Stained, yellowed smiles can not only age you, they can also ruin your confidence level. Teeth Whitening can brighten your smile and bring back a white, healthy looking grin that you will want to show off. We offer Opalescence GO whitening for the easiest and most convenient option available to our patients. Pre-filled trays are provided that you take home and wear for 20 minutes a day for one week. For maintenance, you can call or visit us for additional whitening gel as needed.
