Teeth WhiteningHow your cosmetic dentist in Herrin, IL, can renew your smile

If you want a whiter smile, there’s good news! Modern teeth whitening can help you achieve a brilliant smile quicker and easier than you ever thought possible. Even if you are a smoker or coffee drinker, you can have a gorgeous smile. Cosmetic dentist Dr. Christopher H. Hughes at Hughes Dental Arts Centre in Herrin, IL, wants to introduce you to the magic of professional teeth whitening.

Aging can make your smile yellow because your enamel thins out as you age, allowing you and others to see the yellowish layer underneath, known as dentin. That’s why your teeth can develop a yellowish cast as you get older. Tobacco use including smoking, and drinking coffee, tea or red wine can cause dark brown stains to develop on your teeth. These are just a few of the reasons why your teeth don’t look as white as they used to.

The good news is:

  • You can renew your smile by whitening your teeth from 4 to 6 shades whiter with professional whitening.
  • You can see remarkable results in just one treatment with professional teeth whitening.
  • You can maintain your beautiful results with a take-home whitening kit.

Treatment begins with a thorough dental exam to make sure your teeth are healthy enough for teeth whitening. If your smile is healthy, your in-office whitening treatment can begin. A professional bleaching gel is applied to the surfaces of your teeth every 20 minutes. This initial treatment whitens your smile from 4 to 6 shades whiter depending on the individual characteristics of your tooth enamel.

You will take home a professional teeth whitening kit containing prescription strength whitening gel and custom-fit trays so you can touch up your beautiful results whenever you wish.

Don’t wait to get the white smile you deserve. Enjoy the quick and easy solution to a beautiful white smile by calling Dr. Christopher H. Hughes at Hughes Dental Arts Centre in Herrin, IL. Call your cosmetic dentist today and renew your bright smile!

How your cosmetic dentist in Herrin can enhance your smile

If you are unhappy with your smile, you can improve what nature and genetics gave you, thanks to cosmetic dentistry. Today’s cosmetic dental procedures can provide you with a dazzling, beautiful smile that is also strong to allow you to enjoy the foods you love. You can have a smile that does it all. Dr. Christopher Hughes at Hughes Dental Arts Centre in Herrin, IL, wants to share how cosmetic dentistry can enhance your smile.

Dr. Hughes provides a complete range of cosmetic dental services to correct most common dental issues. Consider:

Porcelain veneers, which are thin sheaths of beautiful, translucent porcelain, cemented over the front surfaces of your teeth. Porcelain veneers can cosmetically correct teeth that are:

  • Unevenly or severely worn down due to aging
  • Cracked, chipped or broken due to trauma
  • Slightly overlapped, spaced apart, or rotated

Cosmetic bonding, using a tooth-colored resin material that can blend perfectly with your teeth, creating a virtually invisible addition to your smile; bonding can fix small chips, defects or cracks in your teeth.

Tooth-colored fillings, using composite which is color-matched perfectly to your existing teeth, creating a harmonious, seamless smile; no more unsightly metal!

Porcelain crowns and bridges, using high-tech dental ceramic which is translucent and reflects light just like your natural teeth; these crowns and bridges are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

Teeth whitening treatments, if you want to whiten your teeth up to 8 shades whiter; you can choose from a quick in-office treatment or a convenient take-home whitening kit.

Invisalign, if you want to straighten your teeth discreetly, quickly and comfortably; Invisalign uses clear plastic trays called aligners which are smooth and comfortable. You change aligners every two weeks as your teeth gradually shift into position. Treatment is complete at nine to fifteen months.

Dental implants, if you want to replace missing teeth with the most revolutionary, natural-looking treatment available; dental implants can replace a single missing tooth and are capped with a crown. If you have multiple missing teeth, the implants are capped with a denture, called an overdenture.
