Esthetic Dental Care in Oak Lawn
Andrew J. Sampalis, DDS and Associates, Ltd., believes that patient satisfaction is a cornerstone of proper dental care. We strive to make sure every patient leaves our office as content as possible.
This dedication includes helping patients who desire a more beautiful smile. The way our teeth look can positively affect our confidence. To help patients look and feel their best, Dr. Sampalis offers cosmetic dentistry.
Standard Porcelain Veneers
For many patients, their cosmetic goals include enhancing the appearance of the teeth. One or more teeth may have internal staining or appear shorter, narrower, chipped, or otherwise misshapen.
For teeth in these circumstances, our dentist provides porcelain veneers. These ceramic sheaths are added to the surface of the teeth and conceal the undesired appearance. The result is a uniform smile that is bright, white, and beautiful.
Of course, every patient is different. Veneers require preparations to be made to the tooth, just as if a crown would. Andrew J. Sampalis, DDS and Associates, Ltd., is also able to provide Lumineers, minimal prep veneers, for patients who both need subtler changes and want to keep more of their enamel.
While veneers can treat stains happening on the inside of the tooth, they are not appropriate to address discoloration originating from a tooth’s outer surface. This type of staining is a result of darkly pigmented particles–such as those from wine, curry, or cigarette smoke–that stick to the enamel. These pigments should be lifted instead of concealed.
Dr. Sampalis provides teeth whitening treatments that remove stains from the enamel. Our dentist can perform teeth whitening during an appointment or can give you a take-home plan that fits into your daily schedule.
Invisalign® Clear Orthodontic Alternative
In addition to the shape and color of teeth, alignment can affect the perceived beauty of the smile. Our practice provides Invisalign clear braces for patients who want a straighter smile. These comfortable, invisible trays gently shift the teeth into the alignment you desire.
