There is no getting around the importance of image in today’s society. Whether a fair assessment or not, first impressions are largely based on appearance. Because of this natural tendency, there are advantages to improve your smile. Studies show that a winning smile and confident attitude promote successful interaction before a word is spoken.

If you are facing an important meeting or event, you want to feel confident in your image but may not have weeks or months to make improvements to your smile. Within just a visit or two, you can receive excellent cosmetic dental care that leads to your best smile. In our office near Normal, IL, we offer a number of services to improve the look of your smile quickly.

Same day smile transformation

Technological advances have improved many aspects of living. In dentistry, the latest technologies have been harnessed to benefit a variety of patients. Today, it is possible to walk out of your dentist’s office with a new smile after just one visit.

Professional teeth whitening has long helped men and women feel better about their appearance. When you don’t have two weeks to wait for gorgeous results, in-office whitening may be the most suitable treatment for you. This excellent treatment can be scheduled during your lunch hour, taking only about 45 to 90 minutes to remove years of stains and brighten the smile by several shades. Once the desired shade has been achieved, patients may maintain results by participating in our Whitening for Life program.

Although teeth whitening is often an ideal treatment for smile transformations, this treatment does not solve every cosmetic issue. Teeth that have small chips or cracks, or show some other slight imperfection can be beautifully corrected with a quick bonding procedure. Tooth bonding is also called direct veneers. The procedure includes the application of a custom-shaded composite material directly onto a tooth. This material is then shaped appropriately and treated with light, which hardens the resin. To complete treatment, the bonding material is polished for a beautiful sheen.

Porcelain veneers for a new smile in two visits

One of the leading cosmetic dental treatments today is porcelain veneers. Treatment is typically completed in two visits, scheduled about two weeks apart. Porcelain veneers are indirect, meaning that they are created in a dental lab based on a model of the patient’s teeth. Porcelain veneers beautifully cover stains, chips, gaps, cracks, slight misalignment, and a host of other cosmetic problems.

In less than a month, your smile can become your biggest asset, shining bright to let your personality take center stage. Contact Eastland Dental Center at for your consultation.
