COSMETIC DENTISTRY IN PEORIA
Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving a patient’s smile in a way that boosts their confidence. It is popular because it focuses on enhancing the outward appearance of a patient’s teeth. For example, if you wish to make your teeth whiter, a tooth whitening treatment falls under the bracket of cosmetic dentistry. Also, cosmetic dentistry focuses more on long term changes as a goal. Things like straightening of the teeth, permanent tooth repair for the purpose the way a smile looks, and more all fall under cosmetic dentistry.

What Are Extractions
Sometimes it’s necessary that a tooth be removed. For example, wisdom teeth that don’t need to be surgically removed are extracted. This means the teeth are pulled along with their root. If a tooth is full of decay, it could also require an extraction.
What Are Tooth Colored Fillings
These fillings are also referred to as composite resins. They are made of a type of resin and are the same color of a person’s teeth. This is preferred to amalgam fillings which are more noticeable due to their metallic coloring. Tooth colored fillings don’t last quite as long as amalgam feelings however, they’re still a great option and are often preferred because of their natural appearance.
What Are Root Canals
This procedure is performed when an issue has occurred with the tooth causing the inside of the tooth, also known as the pulp, to get inflamed or infected. In order to save the tooth without further issue, the pulp of the tooth is removed, cleaned, then filled with a rubbery material, then capped with a crown or filling.

Partial and Full Dentures
Dentures are a popular option to replace those teeth that are no longer able to be used. There are numerous reasons someone may need dentures: an accident caused a patient to lose teeth that couldn’t be fixed, or an elderly patient is having to have all their teeth removed. Full dentures are a full set of false teeth that can be removed as needed and attach to the gums with an adhesive. Partial dentures involve only a few teeth being replaced and often connect to the remaining teeth.
Crowns and Bridges
Types of prosthetics that are commonly used to repair or protect a damaged tooth are also known as crowns or bridges. They can also be used to cover an implant. Both of these are attached to the teeth by a type of cement. A crown acts as a cap while a bridge fills a gap in teeth by attaching to still existing teeth.
Inlays and Onlays
Also included in cosmetic dentistry are corrective pieces called inlays or onlays. These are similar to crowns, caps, or fillings. It can be used to correct issues such as spaces left after a cavity has been removed. Depending on the circumstances, an inlay or onlay may be chosen in place of the other options.
A final type of cosmetic dentistry tool are veneers. Veneers are a type of thin cover for teeth in order to give them a more specific shape or color. They attach to the front portion of the tooth that’s visible. These are also a great option for correcting chipped or worn teeth, as well as discoloration or gaps.

PATIENTS RECOMMEND US
What a great dental office. I was just in there today and the people are amazing! My oldest daughter and I were scheduled to get our teeth cleaned at the same time, but I had to bring my year and a half old daughter with us, it was daddy’s day while mommy had to run errands. They helped out so much so I could get my teeth cleaned until my oldest was done and she could watch her. Great people!
This place is awesome. The atmosphere is dope. The staff is very nice and friendly. The place is so inviting. The exams and cleanings are VERY THOROUGH. They don’t just clean and send you own your way. They ask questions and get to know YOU. This was the best dental visit I’ve ever had.
Dr. Arthur’s one of the best dentists I have amazing dental visits and the quality of work he does is outstanding. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a dentist. Thank you so much for all the great work.
