Wicker Park Cosmetic Dentistry Chicago

The Health You Need. The Smile You Want.

It seems as if everywhere you look, people are flashing perfect, straight, white smiles. You see them on TV and in magazines. You see them on celebrities, movie stars, singers, politicians. But you also see them every day at work and out on the town in Chicago and all over Wicker Park and Bucktown. They look great, don’t they? Healthy, happy, and simply glowing.

How is it possible that there are so many people are born with gorgeous grins? We can’t say for sure, but we’d bet that most of them had a little help from a cosmetic dentist.

Cosmetic dentistry has become an important part of personal care. The truth is, your smile is one of the first things people notice, and an attractive smile can be a tremendous asset in the workforce, when dating, or just as a way to boost your confidence and self-esteem. And when you count on a cosmetic dentist like Dr. Monica Urda at Smile Science Chicago, you can be sure that your smile will not only look terrific, it will be strong and healthy as well.

Our team looks at you as a whole, taking into consideration the shape of your face, the color of your hair, and your personality as we work with you to design your ideal smile. And of course, we talk to you about the importance of addressing oral health concerns, along with cosmetic issues, to ensure that your cosmetic restorations last as long as possible and contribute to your health instead of detracting from it.

The truth is, all of our dentistry could be cosmetic – even something as simple as regular cleanings keep your teeth smooth, bright, and healthy – and our crowns, implants, and dentures are designed and created to enhance your smile and your appearance.

Of course we only offer tooth-colored fillings that blend in your smile, porcelain veneers to perfect and repair everything from gaps to small teeth, the most artful dental bonding to correct chips and all kinds of other minor damage, tooth-bleaching professional whitening to take years of stains off your teeth, and practically invisible Invisalign braces for the adult way to straighten crooked teeth.

We want you to have a beautiful smile to boost your confidence, increase your success, and get the most enjoyment out of life!



Years ago, the only way to have cavities filled was with attractive and dark metal fillings. Some dentists still use them! Not here at Smile Science Chicago. We use only natural-looking, tooth-colored dental fillings so no one can distinguish them in your smile. And unlike those old metal fillings, our tooth-colored cavity fillings do not expand and contract with heat changes such as when you drink a cup of hot coffee or slurp down a milkshake. These shifts can weaken your teeth, while ours stay strong and steady doing their protective work without shifting.



One of the most beautifying and strengthening cosmetic restorations techniques available is renewing your smile with porcelain veneers. These are usually the foundation of any smile makeover because they can do everything from closing minor gaps and lengthening short teeth, to covering stains and irregularities that nothing else can take care of. Our dental veneers are made of thin sheets of porcelain that mimic perfect teeth. These custom-designed facades are bonded to the fronts of your teeth and — voila! A perfectly gorgeous smile!



Our patients are amazed at what a difference a simple and painless procedure like dental bonding can make in their smiles. When done by an artistic dentist like Dr. Urda, your dental bonding will be indistinguishable from your natural tooth. A highly developed aesthetic sense is very important to the bonding outcome because the bonding material is colored, and applied directly to your tooth. If the material is not correctly balanced for color or matched to your shade and texture, it can look unnatural and flat. But when done correctly, it can correct root exposure and gum recession; repair chips, cracks and gaps; and even cover stains. If you have minor imperfections you would like us to correct quickly and effectively in one visit, ask us about affordable and convenient bonding today.



Some people find it hard to believe that tooth whitening and bleaching can do so much to change the appearance of their smiles. It takes years off your appearance, makes irregularities less noticeable, and brightens your entire demeanor. We offer both in-office and take-home options. Our in-office whitening can get your smile up to ten shades whiter in about an hour so you can get do it on your lunch break or after work. Our take-home whitening is great for touch ups or for those who prefer to whiten at their own pace. We will customize your whitening trays and then all you have to do is fill them with professional tooth bleaching gel, sit back, and relax while stains and darkness fade away. Your teeth will be their whitest in about a week.


Invisalign is the perfect way for professionals to get their teeth straightened. Why? These amazing aligners are clear so no one will notice that you are wearing them. Better yet, they are removable so you can eat what you want without fear of damaged wires or brackets, brush and floss as usual, and even take them out for a special event.
