Barrington Cosmetic Dentist
Hollywood smile “makeovers” are not just for the rich and famous these days. From fixing that annoying gap between your front teeth to whitening or more complex procedures like replacing missing teeth, Dr. Jeffrey T. Bonk wants to help you get that perfect smile – just like your favorite celebrity.
Even if your budget is unlimited, without proper planning and a skilled cosmetic dentist, the most expensive treatment can turn out not as you expect. In today’s world of cosmetic dentistry expense is related not only to the advanced education, skill and time of the dentist performing the treatment, but also in part to the advanced training, skill level and time of the dental technicians and staff. Dr. Bonk has spent hundreds of hours mastering his craft through extensive training and education and will settle for nothing less when it comes to his staff and technicians.
Cosmetic Dentistry – Done by an Artist
Smile design planning starts with your initial consultation, with open communication being a key factor in coming up with a smile design that meets your expectations. Dr. Bonk helps you arrive at a smile design through:
- He starts by listening to what you want to accomplish with your new smile.
- He will do a thorough exam, including photographs and x-rays to determine if those goals are possible.
- He will take your desired smile design and create a wax-up for you to examine, to make sure that he understands the shapes and alignment of the teeth that you want in your new smile.
- Finally, before your new smile is made in porcelain, he will create it in a provisional smile that you will actually be able to wear home. Only when that new smile meets your expectations will he proceed to the next step and create the final result.
Your “test-drive” of your new smile will usually be about a week, after which you’ll return to the office for a thorough evaluation so that Dr. Bonk can communicate with his master ceramist before creating your final custom look.
Your Beautiful Smile is Guaranteed
After all of this preparatory work, you are almost certain to love the new smile that is created for you. Still, just to be sure, Dr. Bonk will try it in before bonding it. If you don’t say “Wow!” when you see how it actually looks in your mouth, then he will want to know why and will do whatever it takes to make sure that you love it before it is put on. His master ceramist will come into the operatory if necessary to tweak the final result, or even re-make the case if that is required to get you to the “Wow!” point. This is Dr. Bonk’s beautiful smile guarantee.
