Tilden Dental Group in Streeterville
Everyday wear and tear, decay, and accidents all mark our smiles with unwanted imperfections. When our teeth are less than ideal, we may want to retreat and not live life to its fullest. Whatever dental concern is impacting your smile, Dr. Jordan Tilden and Dr. Zachary Tilden can help.
The entire team at Tilden Dental Group in Streeterville provides many different types of cosmetic treatments to complement your natural beauty and give you confidence in your smile. We take great satisfaction in adding quality to lives through smiles that radiate health and appeal.
Inlays and Onlays for Beautiful Smiles
Deep cavities sometimes cannot be treated with standard fillings. There is now a treatment that addresses severe decay with life-like and lustrous prosthetics. Dental inlays and onlays are restorations that are affixed onto teeth, helping preserve as much of your tooth’s natural structure as possible.
Inlays and Onlays each treat different types of decay: inlays fit inside the cusp of the tooth, and onlays are designed to restore both the inside of the tooth and one or more of the projecting cusps.
After decay is removed, a capable team member takes an impression of the tooth and designs a prosthetic that is identical in dimension and color to the tooth structure that has been removed. The porcelain prosthetic will match the tooth and shine like natural enamel. It is cemented onto the tooth with a curing light, providing a durable and discreet treatment for large cavities.
Dental Crowns to Transform Smiles
Another favorable restoration is with crowns. These are often placed on teeth after root canal therapy, but can also provide a beautiful cosmetic enhancement. Porcelain crowns have several advantages:
- Natural looking – they are semi-translucent and look and feel like natural teeth.
- Color matched - texture and color are customized to blend seamlessly with surrounding teeth.
- Durable - they can last a lifetime when properly cared for.
- Stain resistant – adding a brightness that stands the test of time.
- Functional – allows for normal chewing and speaking.
Patients can participate in designing the size, shape, and color of crowns to suit their personal aesthetic preferences. Many people choose to treat “the social six,” which are the six most visible teeth in the upper and lower jaw. Crowns encase the teeth, providing a dramatic transformation for smiles that are bright, strong, straight and symmetrical.
After preparing the teeth, Drs. Jordan and Zachary Tilden take a precise impression of your smile so we can design your customized crowns Tilden Dental Group offers e.max® crowns, which are known for their superior strength, and BruxZir® which are milled from a zirconia block. After consulting with our dentists, together you can choose which option would be most ideal for your smile.
