A beautiful and confident smile is useful pretty much everywhere, whether you’re going on a date, a job interview, or just meeting up with friends. Of course, it’s easy for the teeth to develop various kinds of flaws that can quickly make someone feel self-conscious, such as stains, gaps, chips, and cracks. That’s where cosmetic dentistry can help. Dr. Lam has the artistic eye and skilled hands to make any imperfection seemingly disappear, giving patients the big, bright, and brilliant smiles they deserve. If you’re ready to take your smile to the next level, contact our Wheaton dental office to get started today.
Are there multiple things that you don’t like about your teeth? Want to fix them all at once? That’s exactly what we can do with porcelain veneers. These thin restorations sit on the teeth like masks, giving them the appearance of pristine white enamel. They are always custom-made based on a patient’s specifications, meaning we can enhance just one tooth or give you a completely renewed smile, often in just two easy appointments.
Dental crowns have been used for decades to repair severely decayed and damaged teeth, but they were usually made of silver or gold, which made them really stick out in a smile. This made them less than ideal for the front teeth, but thankfully, dentistry has found a solution to this problem: metal-free crowns. They are made using 100% white dental porcelain, and Dr. Lam can shape and color them to seamlessly blend into anyone’s smile.
For patients in need of a quick touch-up to get rid of a minor dark spot, small chip, or thin gap, cosmetic bonding is a quick and affordable treatment that can provide truly beautiful results. Composite resin is applied to the teeth to hide any blemish, and then Dr. Lam will mold it to look like a normal part of the enamel, making it seem like it’s not even there.
We all love coffee, wine, and tea, but they can all wreak major havoc on the color of the teeth, leading to discoloration that brushing simply can’t fix. Thankfully, with professional-strength teeth whitening, we can easily break up and remove even the most long-standing stains in a flash. The products we use are much, much stronger than anything you can buy on your own, and they’re guaranteed to deliver dramatic results you’ll be able to enjoy for years to come.
Every picture needs the right frame, and every smile needs a gum line to complement it. Unfortunately, sometimes the gums can overwhelm the teeth, leading to a smile that looks unbalanced or “stubby.” Our soft tissue laser can quickly help patients dealing with this problem, painlessly removing excess gum tissue to instantly make the teeth look longer and more attractive. We can even shape the gum line along the teeth to achieve that perfectly balanced look.
Want to fix a chipped tooth and get rid of that annoying gap between your front teeth? Would you love it if you could whiten your teeth and make them look straighter at the same time? If you have multiple cosmetic flaws, Dr. Lam can put together a customized treatment plan to eliminate them all at the same time, completely transforming the overall appearance of your smile. Using a strategic combination of different procedures, she can give you the kind of teeth you’d expect to see on the red carpet, helping you feel like a star every time you show them off.
