We care about your smile


Dr. Kakos provides his Arlington Heights patients with beautiful smiles using Lumineers.

Lumineers are the #1 patient requested veneer system in the world. Dr. Kakos is certified to provide patients in Arlington Heights the signature benefits of Lumineers.

Lumineers are digitally designed to be ultra-thin (about as thin as a contact lens), so they can be applied seamlessly over your teeth to deliver a natural looking smile.

Not All Veneers Are Made the Same. You Deserve the Best, So Accept No Imitations.

Traditional veneers are generally thicker, and thus require more aggressive and irreversible removal of healthy tooth structure. The extensive preparation technique frequently requires shots and anesthesia to minimize sensitivity and pain, and typically involves placement of acrylic temporaries for over two weeks between visits. The minimally invasive Lumineers technique typically eliminates the need for shots or temporaries, so while you wait for your custom-made Lumineers, you’ll look great and feel great.

Transform your smile with Lumineers in 2 easy visits at Dr. Kakos in Arlington Heights!

Your 1st visit

After your initial consultation with Dr. Kakos at our Arlington Heights office he will take an impression of your upper and lower teeth, and send the mold to an authorized Lumineers laboratory along with photos and other records that ensure the very best case for you. Unlike traditional veneers, there is typically no need for extensive drilling, shots or unsightly acrylic temporaries.

Your 2nd visit

On your next visit, generally a couple weeks later, Dr. Kakos will place your Lumineers. Before Lumineers are bonded in place, it is important to try them on to ensure a good fit. Teeth are then moderately etched to prepare for placement and then bonded one by one. Dr. Kakos will then check your bite to make sure your contacts are balanced to avoid chipping your Lumineers through the course of daily function.
