The desire for cosmetic dentistry is one of the most popular reasons why patients visit the dentist each year. According to the Americandental-veneers Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, over 80 percent of patients say that they want a cosmetic dental procedure to improve their physical attractiveness. You probably already know how important a beautiful smile is to your personal appearance, so why not let a dentist at White Eagle Family Dentistry in Naperville, IL rejuvenate your look with professional dental veneers?

What Are Professional Dental Veneers?
Veneers are dental implements that are placed over the top of the original enamel to improve the aesthetic appearance of your teeth. Professional dental veneers are placed by a qualified dentist who uses both science and art to craft a smile that you can be proud of. Through precise sizing, shaping, and coloring, veneers not only look beautiful, but they also feel natural and comfortable as well!

Veneers Rejuvenate Your Smile
It is common for people to hide their teeth for a number of reasons, including severe discoloration, chips, and odd alignment. No matter the impairment, veneers can make your teeth look smooth, polished, and beautiful! In addition to the aesthetic benefits, veneers' durable porcelain makeup also provides your teeth with additional damage protection.

Have Your Teeth Checked
Evaluating your general dental health plays a central role in whether you will qualify for cosmetic dentistry. Before treatment begins, your Naperville dentist must confirm that your teeth are strong enough to support veneers for an extended period of time. The best way to do this is to perform an X-ray screening to check the inner parts of your teeth and the jawbone. Checking for signs of gum disease is also important, for the risk of tooth loss also puts veneers in danger.

Professional Dental Veneers May Be Right for You
Just about any aesthetic dental imperfection can be resolved with veneers from our Naperville office. To schedule a visit with Dr. Joon Sun, dial (630) 978-9005 today!

A root canal is needed when the dental pulp within a tooth has become damaged or bruised. In these cases, inflammation and fluid begin to build up inside your tooth, causing pain, pressure, and disease, all issues which will only be relieved through root canal therapy.

  • Pain that continues even after a filling or crown is placed
  • Stabbing, aching pain when you bite down or chew
  • Radiating pain that spreads into the jaws, face, or head

There are also some non-painful symptoms, including:

  • A red or white bump appearing on your gums next to a tooth root
  • Drainage including blood or pus coming from the bump on your gums
  • A tooth that is noticeably darker or grayer than the teeth next to it
