Why You Need a Cosmetic Dentist

Missing, chipped, or broken teeth can make you appear older than you are. At our cosmetic dentistry practice located in the North Chicago suburbs of Mundelein, Dr. Michael Roessler specializes in a number of aesthetic dental procedures including dental veneers, Zoom™ teeth whitening, and tooth bonding. These cosmetic dentistry procedures mask imperfections, and most treatments can be completed in as little as one or two appointments! If your smile is less than you would like it to be, we can help you. To schedule a consultation or for information about the cosmetic dentistry treatments we offer, please contact our Chicago area office today.
Cosmetic bonding, or dental bonding, is a fast, inexpensive way to instantly improve your smile. Cosmetic dentist Michael Roessler, D.D.S., recommends dental bonding to treat a number of aesthetic and functional problems in his cosmetic dentistry patients. Whether our Chicago area patients are experiencing tooth sensitivity or are embarrassed to smile in public, tooth bonding may be the solution.
Dental Bonding Uses
Dental bonding is used to repair chips and cracks in teeth, to whiten discolored teeth, to fill gaps between teeth and to change the shape of teeth. When dental bonding is used to fill cavities, the result is a filling that matches the natural beauty and color of the tooth, as opposed to the silver colored fillings traditionally used. If you have sensitive areas near your gum line, schedule a consultation with our cosmetic dentist. Quite often this sensitivity is caused by exposure of the root of the tooth. Dental bonding can be used to fill in this area and eliminate sensitivity.
The Dental Bonding Procedure
Tooth bonding is a relatively simple and fast cosmetic dentistry procedure. The surface of your tooth is roughened slightly so it holds the bonding material. Next, the bonding material in a shade that matches your natural teeth will be applied to your tooth. The bonding is then cured with a special light. You’ll then have a beautiful new tooth that blends in naturally with your surrounding teeth!

Dental veneers (known as porcelain veneers when made of porcelain) can provide you with a natural looking and aesthetically pleasing smile. They are an excellent way to improve the shape of a tooth, fix a chipped or broken tooth, straighten teeth, fill gaps between teeth, or whiten a tooth. Dr. Michael Roessler, our esteemed cosmetic dentist, has years of experience placing porcelain veneers on patients in the Mundelein area with excellent results.
Porcelain Veneer Uses
Dental veneers are extremely thin shells that are affixed to the front of the teeth. Dental veneers can be made longer or wider than the natural teeth to change the shape of teeth, make the teeth appear more even, and fill gaps between teeth. Dental veneers can be placed on cracked or chipped teeth to straighten them and make them appear whole. Dental veneers can also be placed on severely stained or graying teeth to make them appear whiter. To learn more about porcelain veneers, contact our practice in the North Chicago suburbs today. We offer free consultations so patients interested in porcelain dental veneers can visit our Mundelein dental practice to determine if dental veneers are right for them!
Benefits of Porcelain and Resin Veneers
Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or resin materials. Porcelain veneers are more natural looking than resin dental veneers. Porcelain veneers also resist stains better than resin veneers. Resin veneers are repairable unlike porcelain veneers. Our dentist, Michael Roessler, D.D.S., will help you decide whether porcelain veneers or resin dental veneers are right for you. back to top
