Residents of Chicago’s south side have an ally in the fight for healthy teeth and gums and a brilliant smile. Linda M. Weinfield, DDS is a cosmetic dentist in South Chicago and for over 20 years she and her staff have been delivering high quality general, cosmetic and restorative dental care to the families in the surrounding communities. Our goal is work with each patient to cater to his or her dental needs and address all concerns in a caring and compassionate way.
Cosmetic dentistry restores both the function and the look of the teeth, often after a restoration. One technique that is used in cosmetic dentistry that improves both the function and look of a tooth is dental bonding. Bonding uses a composite resin for a variety of structural and cosmetic purposes, such repairing a chip in a tooth, restoring a broken tooth or to fill in gaps. The resin is bonded to the tooth and can then be sculpted into the shape or space needed. The resin material comes in many shades to match the color of the tooth. Our practice also offers dental bleaching to help whiten dull, stained or discolored teeth. Bleaching and whitening uses a variety of techniques to remove brown and yellow stains from teeth and to add brilliance to a patient’s smile. Two other cosmetic techniques that combine functional properties with appearance are the use of ceramic crowns and porcelain veneers (laminates). Crowns are used to restore a tooth that is broken or severely cracked, or to top an implant when replacing a missing tooth.
For the restoration of missing teeth our cosmetic dentist in South Chicago often uses dental implants. An anchor is surgically implanted into the jawbone and covered by the gum. After the implant area heals a crown that sits atop a post tops the anchor. The implant will look and function just like a natural tooth. Whatever your dental concerns, our practice is here to assist you, so please make an appointment to come see us.
