Is Your Smile Ready For Summer?

Chicago DentistSummer is just around the corner, making many patients wonder what they can do to improve their smiles for upcoming vacations and warmer weather. If you are interested in making some changes to your smile just in time for summer, here are four treatment options to consider:


Invisalign is an excellent option to consider for summer. An alternative to traditional, metal braces, Invisalign offers patients the chance to discreetly straighten their smiles. Using clear, plastic aligners, Invisalign slowly applies pressure to your dental structures and encourages them to shift into a straighter position over time. As long as you wear your removable aligners on average of 20-22 hours a day, your treatment plan will progress as planned. This means you can easily remove your Invisalign aligners to enjoy all of your favorite summer snacks without worrying about the dietary restrictions associated with traditional orthodontia.


Veneers can give you a fast and effective smile makeover, just in time for summer. Our office offers two different types of veneers, minimal-prep veneers, and porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are a highly versatile dental treatment that can serve both cosmetic and restorative purposes for patients with a wide variety of dental health or cosmetic concerns. They cosmetically replace the front-facing portion of your tooth. Similar to porcelain veneers, minimal prep dental veneers are designed to cover the front and sides of the teeth and made from an ultra-thin, high-quality ceramic material. Talk to Dr. Engelberg to learn more about which type of veneers will best meet your needs for a complete smile makeover.

Tooth Bonding

Tooth bonding is a cost-effective solution to concealing minor blemishes on your dental surfaces. When your teeth are slightly chipped, stained, or misshapen, this can throw off the overall appearance of your smile. Because your smile is the first thing that people will notice about you, we understand you want to correct minor blemishes before they develop further into major cosmetic issues. With tooth bonding, Dr. Engelberg uses a composite, resin material similar to what is used for dental fillings. He covers up the blemish with the material and shapes it down to blend in seamlessly with your smile.  This procedure is fast and affordable, making it the perfect smile enhancement treatment for summer.

Teeth Whitening

Weddings, beach vacations, and family reunions are happening this summer… we know it’s important to many patients to have the brightest and whitest teeth. To help patients looking to whiten their teeth for summer, we provide professional teeth whitening services in our Arlington Heights, IL dentist office. Patients can choose to undergo treatment in our office, or receive a take-home whitening kit. Our office utilizes the Zoom Whitening procedure, which was developed to be simple and painless. The active ingredient in Zoom is pH balanced hydrogen peroxide that, when activated by a special light, gently penetrates teeth to remove deep stains and discoloration.
