Sensenbrenner Family Dental is a Champaign cosmetic dentistry practice that has been serving the Champaign, IL area since 1978. We offer a variety of quality dental procedures including porcelain veneers and ZOOM whitening system.
In the past decade there has been a dramatic and increasing interest in cosmetic dentistry. Having a healthy, bright, beautiful smile enhances our appearance and allows us to smile with confidence. Thanks to the advances in modern cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Ken and Dr. Will, at our Champaign dental office, are able to improve your teeth and smiles with quick, painless and surprisingly affordable treatments such as porcelain veneers and Zoom whitening.
The porcelain veneers we offer at our Champaign cosmetic dentistry office are very thin pieces of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) for us by a variety of labs. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.
Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. Often they can be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions.
As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and may someday need replacement, but they are very durable and will provide you with a beautiful long lasting smile for many years.
Reasons for porcelain veneers:
- Cosmetically, to create a beautiful, white, uniform smile
- Crooked teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Severely discolored or stained teeth
- Teeth that are too small or large
- Unwanted or uneven spaces
- Worn or chipped teeth
What does getting porcelain veneers involve?
Getting porcelain veneers usually requires two visits to our Champaign cosmetic dentistry practice to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia required during the procedure. The teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer. A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and the dentist.
During the second visit the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond. Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer and a special light beam is used to harden and set the bond.
You will receive care instructions for your new porcelain veneers. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers. Your lifestyle and the aging process can stain and darken your teeth.
Zoom Teeth Whitening
Many things we do on a regular basis can contribute to stained teeth, such as drinking coffee, tea, cola, and red wine or smoking.
Whitening can get your smile looking its best. The Zoom whitening procedure offered at our Champaign cosmetic dentistry practice is:
- Fast and convenient
- Long lasting
- Low sensitivity
- Proven to be safe and effective
- Performed by a Dental Professional
The Zoom whitening system is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It's safe, effective, and very fast. In just under an hour your teeth will be dramatically whiter. Zoom whitening is ideal for anyone looking for immediate results. The convenience of Zoom teeth whitening in comparison to days of wearing trays and gradual whitening makes it the perfect choice for the busy patient.
The Zoom whitening system’s light activated gel was developed after years of research by Discus Dental, the leaders in professional take-home tooth whitening. The gel is a scientifically formulated pH balanced Hydrogen Peroxide that, when activated by the Zoom whitening light, gently penetrates the teeth to remove deep stains and discoloration.
Our cosmetic dentist likes to provide genuine patient care, and includes post-treatment whitening trays for the patient to take home and maintain their new whiter smile. With proper care and an occasional touch-up at home, your whiter smile will sparkle for years.
Remember, your smile speaks before you even say a word!
