Dr. Paul Morrison grew up in southern New Jersey, outside of Philadelphia. He attended the University of Notre Dame where he completed his Bachelor of Science and went on to earn his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Maryland in 2011.
He feels his dental education really began after dental school after discovering a passion for sedation and implant dentistry. Dr. Morrison has experience with All on Four treatments as well as dental implant restoration.
He fulfilled my sedation licensure requirements through the Oregon AGD in 2017 and completed a two-year intensive implant training maxi-course under some of the highest-regarded instructors and clinicians in the field of implant dentistry.

Des Plaines Invisalign
The Invisalign system is pretty straightforward. You will wear each aligner for about two weeks, and should only be removed to eat, drink, brush, or floss. Over time your teeth will move into their ideal position as you replace the aligners with the next in the series.
We will check to make sure treatment is progressing as planned during your visits to First Class Smiles. Not changing aligners as scheduled or skipping your appointments can quickly undo any progress that's been made. The most important element to success with your Des Plaines Invisalign is changing your aligners on time and wearing them as directed. Your trays will be custom designed to fit your unique dental needs. They will need to be changed frequently to keep up with the shifting of your teeth as they begin to straighten.
The average treatment time is generally between 8 and 18 months. This can vary widely from case to case. Treatment time depends significantly on patient compliance. It's important to remember that every patient will respond to orthodontic treatment differently. Invisalign works in a slightly different and less invasive way than braces to straighten the teeth. This means it can be hard to say with certainty how long a patient will need to wear them before seeing results.
We estimate treatment time based on how well you follow the recommended guidelines. Any small deviation from this can add extra time to the overall process. Invisalign can only work if patients stick to the program. This means wearing aligners for at least 20-22 hours every single day, throughout the course of treatment.
Des Plaines Teeth Whitening
A smile is usually the first thing that you notice when you meet someone. What does your smile say about you? We love to whiten our patients' teeth because it is often the most conservative way to change tooth color.
We notice that patients who complete Des Plaines teeth whitening treatment tend to take a greater role in their own oral health. Above all else, we want our patients to have the best oral health possible.
We also want you to confidently smile a smile you're proud to share! To help you get the whitest smiles possible, we offer several whitening options and will work with you to select the best teeth whitening method for your needs.
At-home whitening is perfect if you would like to whiten their teeth on your own schedule. With this system, you'll receive prescription gel and whitening trays, which are customized for your teeth for optimal results. Each day, you will load this gel into the trays and wear them for the recommended amount of time. The treatment time is usually about an hour, but each smile is unique, so follow the instructions provided by our doctors, or a member of our team. You'll be able to reach your whitest smile within two weeks of using this method.
Des Plaines Veneers
A Des Plaines porcelain veneer is a thin shell of ceramic that looks like natural enamel and is made to hide a chipped or otherwise damaged tooth. The materials used to create veneers are durable and stronger than real teeth. They can even reflect light in the same manner as unaltered teeth do so that a cosmetically enhanced tooth is indistinguishable from the rest. We can permanently place veneers to revitalize your smile.
