Burbank dental office
If you have a cosmetic dental problem, you should come and speak to our dentist at our dental practice, Linda M. Weinfield DDS. Our expert cosmetic dentist, Dr. Linda M. Weinfield will determine how to fix your cosmetic dental situation; one cost-effective way to have cosmetically damaged teeth restored at our Burbank dental office is with porcelain veneers.
Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain which are made to cover the front of the tooth. The veneers are extremely thin but extremely strong, and will last for many years. The dental veneers are permanently attached to the front of the tooth, and are made to perfectly color-match the tooth so no one will ever know you have them in your mouth. A patient can get one porcelain veneer to fix the appearance of a single damaged tooth, or our patient can get many porcelain veneers to get the perfect smile they have long wanted. Our dentist at our Burbank dental office will determine whether your tooth is only cosmetically damaged, and will most likely recommend a porcelain veneer to fix its appearance, if this is the case. If your tooth is also structurally damaged, our dentist will probably recommend that you get a porcelain crown which will cover the tooth on all sides and strengthen the tooth as it improves its appearance. However, porcelain veneers are extremely successful in fixing the appearance of: teeth that are too short; teeth that are chipped; teeth that have surface cracks in the enamel; teeth that are misshapen; teeth that have uneven gaps between them; teeth that are slightly misaligned; teeth that are discolored and cannot be whitened with dental whitening methods; and teeth with other cosmetic dental problems.

Cosmetic dentist in South Chicago
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.

Dr. Weinfield demonstrates the highest competence, knowledge, ability, and proficiency in both the surgical and restorative aspects of implant dentistry as well as in critical aftercare.
While working to improve the smiles of his patients at her Oak Lawn dental office, Dr. Weinfield keeps in mind that each face has a unique smile and shouldn’t be a copy of someone else smile. In order to make your smile its best, dental crowns or veneers are great way to restore the form, function, and beauty of your smile. As far as a dental restoration goes, crowns and caps are used synonymously. Crowns are synthetic caps placed on the top of a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth’s function and appearance following a restorative procedure, such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth. Dr. Weinfield may also use crowns to attach bridges, cover implants, or to prevent a cracked tooth from becoming worse. If your tooth or teeth aren’t missing and merely have gaps, chips, stains, or are misshapen, then veneers are for you. Dental crowns are sometimes confused with veneers, but they are quite different. Porcelain veneers are typically applied only to relatively small areas. They are natural in appearance, and are a perfect alternative for patients wanting to make minor adjustments to the look and feel of their smile. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells made from tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of your teeth. Traditional dental restoratives include gold, amalgam, porcelain, and composite. These materials are not only strong and durable, but restore the look of natural teeth and are very aesthetically pleasing.
Dr. Weinfield believes that people look different, teeth look different so every patient receives a customized service. On the other hand all patients are equally important and treated as friends and family. Our Oak Lawn dental office will determine the best possible solution to restore your teeth based on your individual needs. Regardless of which method is right for you, restoring and replacing your teeth will surely restore your beautiful smile.
