From preventive to restorative dentistry, Dental Professionals offers a range of dental services that define modern dentistry. Our experienced, caring Chicago dentists are well-versed in the latest dental technologies and procedures to make your dentist visits as quick and pain-free as possible. Dental Professionals also utilizes the services of chairside dental assistants, to guarantee efficient and on-time dental treatment.
Here's a look at the latest dentistry services offered by the Dental Professionals:
Now available in both our Skokie and downtown Chicago offices: the CEREC system to repair and restore teeth. The finished product looks more natural than fabrications used in the past for silver or plastic fillings. It's more durable and longer lasting than traditional tooth restorations. Best of all, the entire dental procedure can be done in one visit, so there's no need for a return appointment.
Tooth Whitening Cosmetic Dentistry Services: You're provided with a custom-fit tray and tooth whitening cosmetic products to use at home that will result in a brighter, more winning smile.
Porcelain Laminates: Ultra-thin high-strength cosmetic dentistry facings made out of advanced porcelains can literally change your smile in just a few weeks.
Bonded Composites: Special cosmetic dentistry materials smooth out rough surfaces, change colors, alter contours or close spaces - stronger and more durable than ever before.
Dental implants are the most progressive and natural option in tooth replacement. State-of-the-art dental technology provides predictable, comfortable, and esthetic results allowing high quality eating, speaking, and smiling. An increased confidence accompanies an improved quality of life with dental implants.
Root Canal Therapy: If your tooth's pulp is irreversibly damaged, this procedure can save teeth from extraction. We use anesthetics, analgesics and advanced dental techniques that greatly reduce the discomfort related with root canal therapy.
Periodontal Scaling and Root Planing: Prevent periodontitis, an inflammation that can erode the ligament and bone beneath the gums and result in tooth loss, with a specialized home program of periodontal therapy. We also offer root planing, or deep scaling of the bacteria-filled pockets caused by periodontitis.
Sealants: We'll apply clear plastic materials to act as a barrier against decay-prone chewing surfaces on the back teeth.
Digital X-Rays are the latest technological advance at Dental Professionals. This great innovation substantially reduces your exposure to radiation from X-rays, making your dentist visit safer, faster and easier than ever before.
Safer: Reduces radiation by up to 90% compared to traditional film-based X-rays. And it eliminates the need to use caustic chemicals in the office.
Faster: images can be viewed immediately by you and your dentist. To make them even easier to see, we'll enlarge them on a large monitor and lighten or darken them for best viewing.
Better: more diagnostic information is available from a digital X-ray, so we can identify problem areas and fix them earlier.
Crowns: Restore substantially damaged teeth with crowns made of aesthetic porcelains or a combination of tooth-strengthening materials.
Bridges: Replace missing teeth with aesthetic porcelain fused to metal that attaches the artificial teeth and uses sound teeth on either side for supports.
Full and Partial Dentures: Full dentures are used if no teeth are left for support in conjunction with the gums and jawbone; partials are used if some serviceable teeth are present for support.
Onlays: These large fillings restore severely damaged teeth; porcelain materials are used to match your tooth color.
At Dental Professionals we can fit you for a Nightguard to prevent you from grinding or clenching your teeth while you sleep. We also offer other treatments for temporomandibular joint disorders, such as stress reducing exercises or muscle relaxants. These TMJ treatments have been successful for many and your dentist can recommend which is best for you.

A new treatment for patients with sleep disordered breathing problems is now available at Dental Professionals. Oral appliances were approved by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine in 2006 as a viable alternative to CPAP for treating mild to moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome. The dental sleep medicine experts at Dental Professionals provide oral appliance therapy proven as effective as CPAP, but more comfortable and convenient, improving the quality of your life and health.
