You’re unique, and deserve a dental health plan specifically tailored to your personal history and lifestyle. We take the time and care to know you and your overall health because there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all plan at Dental Professionals.
Our Chicago dentists are experienced specialists who create a personalized oral hygiene and prevention plan of care to suit your specific needs. Keeping your teeth healthy is a lifetime commitment, and one we make proudly to every patient who walks through our doors.
From the start, it’s all about you
Before your first visit, we’ll send you a convenient online form to complete with details about your health, past dental experience and current issues. Most important, we’ll ask what you’re seeking at Dental Professionals…rehabilitating a severely damaged tooth…brightening up your smile…or simply maintaining good dental health. At your first dental exam, we’ll perform a thorough check of your teeth and existing fillings, conduct a periodontal examination, evaluate the health of your bite, and get an inside look with non-invasive, digital x-rays. If you want to improve your smile, share your thoughts with the doctor during this first exam, and if necessary, additional photos of your teeth or models of your mouth will be taken.
Your needs will form the basis of your individualized oral health plan.
Cosmetic Dentistry. Everyone deserves a beautiful smile…allow us to perfect yours with the art of cosmetic dentistry. We’ll take photos of your smile and perform a bit of magic on the computer with cosmetic imaging which shows how your smile will look after the work is done. Models of your teeth are taken and a laboratory mock-up done for a detailed look at the shape, size and position of your newly designed smile. Then we’ll recommend the best choice--teeth whitening or porcelain laminates, you’ll be smiling.
Restorative Dentistry. Advanced restorative dentistry services help keep your teeth looking healthy and strong. Crowns or onlays, made of tooth-colored materials, cover, restore, protect and support severely damaged teeth. For tooth replacement, dental implants offer the most progressive and natural option available today. Our implants-in-a-day allow you to eat, chew, speak and smile naturally and in complete comfort.
Preventative Dentistry. No matter how well you brush, bristles can’t reach all the way into the pits and fissures of your teeth to extract all of the food and plaque. Sealants do the job for you, forming a protective barrier to ward off decay. Not just for youngsters, sealants are extremely effective in preventing tooth decay in adults too.
