Top cosmetic dental treatments:
- Teeth Whitening — Teeth whitening is the most common cosmetic dental procedure for lightening (bleaching) teeth.
- Dental Bonding — Dental bonding is an option for fixing a broken tooth, chipped tooth or cracked teeth.

- Dental Veneers — Veneers are thin, custom-made shells designed for closing gaps or disguising stained teeth that don’t respond well to whitening treatments.
The Truth About Cosmetic Dentistry
Some people hear the word cosmetic and assume that Dr. Dechavez only treats people that are looking to create a Hollywood smile. While Dr. Dechavez is a talented cosmetic dentist, this field of dentistry involves much more than creating a stunning appearance. It is true that most Hollywood stars have used cosmetic dental procedures to improve their smile, but these procedures accomplish far more than that.
Beyond basic cosmetic procedures aimed at changing a person’s appearance, cosmetic dental procedures can restore the functionality of teeth and the self-confidence of our patients. Accidents as well can damage, break, and chip teeth. It is important to visit a dentist that can restore teeth in a natural way, and Dr. Dechavez can take care of that.
Don’t let cosmetic dental prices guide your choice in a dentist because cheaper isn’t necessarily better. Dr. Dechavez has a reputation for completing restorations in a way that makes teeth appear so natural, no one can tell there was ever anything wrong with them. Dr.Dechavez and the staff at GSmile Dental have earned this reputation for excellence. This can be a lifesaver for people that want to live an active lifestyle and maintain the appearance they had prior to the accident. We do, however, recommend that if you damaged your tooth, you call (929) 388-1255 to schedule an appointment right away. The faster you can come into our dental office, the more options you will have for restoring the damaged tooth.

Cosmetic dentistry has also improved preventative care and how people are treated overall. In the past, old fashioned metal tools were used for dental treatments. Now, as cosmetic dentists, we look for ways to improve the patient’s experience and leverage technology in order to do so. Some new techniques involve using a laser while dentists keep patients comfortable and relaxed through sedation. Dr. Dechavez treats patients with compassion and care. By identifying ways to improve the experience of every patient, Dr. Dechavez and the staff at GSmile Dental continue to make visiting the dentist easier and more enjoyable. From painless teeth cleanings to performing major dental work in comfort, we make our patients our top priority.
The second most common disease in the United States is cavities. The first is the common cold. Ask us about esthetic filling options.
As an experienced dentist, Dr. Dechavez understands that when patients have healthy teeth, their teeth will be less likely to become damaged or fall out. With over 70% of U.S. adults experiencing some form of tooth loss, preventative care is that much more important. We recommend that patients schedule an appointment with our office to have their teeth cleaned at least twice a year. During these regular appointments, we can remove surface stains, bacteria, and plaque that hide in hard to reach places. We can also look for signs of gum disease and cavities so that if present, can be treated right away. Keeping teeth healthy is important because healthy teeth are strong teeth, and strong teeth are at less of a risk for falling out.
While cosmetic dentistry is typically viewed as a way to create a beautiful and perfect smile, taking the time to focus on preventative care is something that we are passionate about. The entire staff at GSmile Dental takes the time to educate patients about what they can do at home to stay in good oral health and as a result, we are able to reduce the risk of cavities and gum disease. Sometimes, taking these few extra minutes can make a positive impact on our patients’ oral health, and that is something that excites us.
Tetracycline (antibiotic) staining, excessive fluoride and old fillings are just a few reasons why teeth appear dark.
Elmhurst Cosmetic Dental FAQ
Q: I don’t like my teeth or my smile – what can I do?
A: A wide variety of options are available to improve tooth function and how your smile looks. Ask us about what options are available.
Q: How much does it cost to get a great smile?
A: Like most services, cost varies based on the amount of time required and the difficulty of the procedure(s). Generally, improving a smile requires a combination of treatment options such as bleaching, reshaping gums, and using bonded materials (resin or porcelain) to improve the appearance of the teeth. A great way to start is by having a consultation with our dentist to determine how you can reach your goals.
Q: I have dental insurance. Will it pay for my new smile?
A: Most dental insurance has very low total benefits per year, which may offset the cost for regular checkups, but probably won’t pay toward cosmetic services. We will work to maximize your benefits, and may have suggestions for alternative methods of financing so you can obtain the treatment of choice. Learn more about dental insurance and financing.
Q: What are some benefits of cosmetic dentistry?
A: A great smile should improve your self-confidence, which can have a positive impact on the social and professional aspects of your life. Cosmetic dentistry is not just about pretty smiles though. New techniques and materials are available for back teeth as well as those seen when you smile.
Q: How many office visits will it take to fix my teeth and improve my smile?
A: This varies with each individual, depending on the need. Sometimes, you can dramatically improve your oral health and appearance in just a couple of visits. Discuss your goals and concerns, so the best plan can be developed for your individual situation. If you start today, a new smile can be yours sooner than you think.
Q: What will my new smile look like?
A: Our dentist will work with you in choosing the right look for you. A smile enhancement can be made to look both dramatic and natural. We can use photographs (in a process called cosmetic imaging) and models to show you what to expect. Sometimes, trial materials can be placed directly on your teeth to help you visualize the change.
Q: Is my new smile permanent?
A: With good home care and regular visits, modern materials can last for many years, and possibly decades. Like most things, excellent maintenance will extend the life of your dental restorations.
