Read this article to fully understand the difference between cosmetic and non-cosmetic dentistry when booking your next appointment with us.

Understanding the Services Provided By a Non-Cosmetic Dentist vs. a Cosmetic Dentist

General dentists specialize in oral healthcare and preventative care. These types of oral health care include teeth cleaning, filling cavities, root canals, oral cancer screening, and restorative services. If you are coming in to get a checkup or discuss tooth pain you are having, you are receiving non-cosmetic dental services.

Cosmetic dentists dedicate their career towards improving the aesthetics and health of your teeth, improving your smile. Cosmetic dental procedures performed by Dr. Tanquilut includes porcelain veneers, aesthetic teeth contouring, Invisalign braces, and teeth whitening services. Dr. Tanquilut utilizes skills acquired from his extensive schooling and years of experience, ensuring a flawless smile you can’t wait to show off. Though cosmetic dentistry is not considered a specialty by the American Dental Association, it is important to choose the right dental provider.

Cosmetic Dentistry Services

Cosmetic dental services provided by Dr. Tanquilut at Randallwood Dental in St. Charles include:

Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic procedure used to create a straight, white smile in less time than braces and whitening practices. Veneers are created in a lab using an impression of your teeth to ensure they fit properly. Dentists permanently bond the porcelain based enamel shells to the front of teeth to provide an ideal smile. Porcelain veneers are popular among those who have teeth gaps, discoloration, or chipping. We set up consultations with every candidate to evaluate their oral health before providing porcelain veneers.

Bonded veneers are a more affordable route for a straighter, more beautiful smile without the use of braces. Composite resins, which are the color of your teeth, are shaped and hardened over discolored, chipped, or broken teeth, providing the end result of a more flawless smile. Dr. Tanquilut recommends bonded veneers for patients that need minor tooth repairs because this process makes the finished tooth look smooth and natural. Bonded veneers cost less than porcelain veneers and usually last between 5 to 10 years.

Invisalign braces create a straighter smile without the use of visually unappealing metal brackets and wire, in less time and money than metal braces. Invisalign clear braces are easy to wear, comfortably fitting your teeth without being visually noticeable by others. Invisalign braces have a compact design and are made with medical-grade plastic, correcting teeth spacing and bite problems in children, teens, and adults.

Teeth whitening services provided by Dr. Tanquilut utilizes a deep bleaching system which remove teeth stains, making your teeth up to eight shades whiter. Dr. Tanquilut is top rated cosmetic dentist in Western Suburbs that utilizes a top notch bleaching solution which will remove discoloration and stains in less than two hours.
