The Chicago Center for Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry's Thomas Jackson, DDS applies advanced training mastered at the University of Pennsylvania to help restore smiles through dental implants and crowns. Dental implants begin to fill the void left by missing teeth by replacing the root of the tooth with a titanium screw that unites with the jawbone around it through oseointegration. Once dental implants have been fully adopted by their foster mouths, they stand ready to accept crowns, snap-on dentures, or semipermanent swirly-straws (none of which are included in the first package). The dental-implant and crown package outfits mouths with a natural-looking, porcelain tooth starting with the placement of an abutment. Three to six months after having the implant put in place, patients return to receive their titanium abutment, which serves as a sturdy stage from which the artificial tooth can join other chompers in a smiling chorus. Once in place, the dental implant and crown are designed to look, feel, and function just like original teeth and last for a lifetime with proper care.

Dr. Alma Lombardo believes that a trip to the dentist should be unintimidating and anxiety-free. To accomplish this, she adopts a compassionate attitude with patients of any age and she stocks her practice with cutting-edge medical technology. Digital x-rays give the practitioners a clearer look at a patients’ mouth, televisions in every room help patients relax, and the office’s computerized system allows the staff to keep detailed records without wasting paper or hand-chiseled stone tablets. In addition to the technology, Dr. Lombardo and her practitioners draw on their vast experience to provide comprehensive general as well as cosmetic dental care, preventing the spread of disease and keeping smiles bright.
Dr. Maha Blaibel’s cut her teeth in the dental world by treating underprivileged children at the Infant Welfare Society and Boys and Girls Club of Chicago. Now firmly ensconced at RiverWalk Dental, she leads her friendly staff in providing patients of all ages with everything from routine checkups to cosmetic procedures. She corrects imperfections with porcelain crowns, veneers, and both invisible and traditional braces. For teeth discolored by drinking coffee or napping near a tanning bed, Dr. Blaibel uses Zoom!’s light-activated gel to lift stains and increase brightness by up to eight shades.
By stunting tooth decay, preventing gingivitis, and restoring mouth bones to their native tones, the dentists at Dental Salon have collected a trophy case?s worth of awards and endorsements. Visitors to the Chicago Reader?s website voted the center Best Dentist in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013. And, since 2009, the office has thrice earned the title of Premier Provider from Invisalign, an alternative to traditional orthodontia that straightens teeth with a series of invisible, custom-fit trays. Patients can speed through dental chores and paperwork thanks to the office's crew of 25 dental assistants and cheetah receptionist.
Before Dr. Acierno came into the picture, Tracy Jones had little to laugh or smile about. In her testimonial on the doctor?s site, Tracy explains that when she was born, she was exposed to a medicine that stained her enamel. So in her adolescence, it got to the point where she no longer smiled, or if she did, she covered her teeth with her hand. After multiple visits to Dr. Acierno, her smile and confidence had transformed, and the looks that once chipped away at her self-esteem have turned into compliments that boost it.
Many patients at Acierno Dental have a similar story to share. And in addition to improving smiles with teeth whitening, Invisalign braces, and restorations, the staff also treat bad breath, maintain tooth health, and prevent disease. During visits, Acierno Dental?s resident dentist, Dr. Alan Acierno, screens for oral cancer and gum disease with a thorough exam and x-ray screening, and then recommends treatments ranging from general cleanings to other preventative and cosmetic services, ensuring comprehensive oral health.
