Today, we can easily enhance our appearances with beauty products, spa treatments, and cosmetic surgeries. But, perhaps one of the easiest and most effective ways to amplify our appearances is with cosmetic dentistry solutions. Luckily, our Lombard dentist has quality cosmetic treatments that fit your budget, lifestyle, and personality.


If you’re looking for beauty-enhancing dental care that improves the health and function of your smile, then contact the team at Dental Care of Lombard today. Dr. Julie Glud and her experienced team can help you get the healthy, dazzling smile you deserve. To request your appointment, call (630) 629-5700 or send our Lombard, IL, team a message here.


While you’re waiting for your appointment, you’ll want to gather more information about the various cosmetic treatments available to you. In this blog post, Dr. Glud discusses three popular cosmetic dentistry solutions for you to consider.

1. Professional Teeth Whitening

You might be wondering: Why should I visit a Lombard dentist to whiten my teeth when I can buy whitening strips at the grocery store? Well, those store-bought whiteners might be a waste of your time, money, and oral health.


Store-bought whiteners typically contain 10% or less of an active bleaching agent (like hydrogen peroxide). While these products can lighten the appearance of stained teeth, the results are often lackluster. These products are also easy to abuse or misuse, as applying too much hydrogen peroxide for too long can strip tooth enamel and irritate gum tissue.


So, rather than wasting your time, money, and oral health on subpar results, opt for long-lasting professional teeth-whitening treatments. Our Lombard dentist makes life easy for you by offering in-office and take-home options. Both systems use stronger bleaching agents to deliver gobsmacking results that last months or years longer than store-bought whiteners.

2. Dental Veneers

If you want to customize your smile with finesse, then dental veneers may be an ideal cosmetic solution for you. These razor-thin shells of dental-grade ceramice adhere to the teeth, which effectively covers slight smile imperfections, such as:

  • Discoloration
  • Chips
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Minor dental crowding
  • Gaps (also called diastemas)


Dental veneers are a permanent solution, which means that patients should take special care to protect and maintain their veneers. Patients should:

  • Avoid damaging habits, like chewing on ice, biting fingernails, or eating hard foods
  • Practice good, daily oral hygiene
  • Be free from or treat bruxism (also called tooth grinding)
  • Visit our Lombard dentist every six months


With the proper care, patients could enjoy their upgraded smile with dental veneers for a decade or longer!

3. Dental Bonding

Almost as customizable as dental veneers is dental bonding. In this treatment, our Lombard dentist uses the same material used to plug cavities to cover imperfections, like:

  • Discoloration
  • Chips
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Gaps


This option is a cost-effective alternative to dental veneers, requiring the removal of very little (if any!) tooth enamel. As a result, it is a long-lasting cosmetic solution, but it is very easily reversed (whereas dental veneers are not). This makes it an ideal treatment for patients who don’t want the commitment of veneers.
