Since his graduation from the University of Illinois College of Dentristy in 2006, I Care Dental's Dr. Samee has made quite the name for himself. He's already been voted one of the top dentists in the area, a distinction that earned him an award in 2012 and a feature in the Chicago Tribune. In addition to performing a wide range of routine and cosmetic dental services—including basic cleanings, teeth-whitening treatments, and veneer applications—he lends his expertise to the Academy of Gp Orthodontics, actively works with the American Dental Association, and proudly holds membership cards and novelty coffee mugs from both the Illinois State Dental Society and the Chicago Dental Society.
AV Dental spruces up Chicagoland smiles with its toothsome array of general and cosmetic dental services and in-house denture lab. An investigative exam first checks the chompers for mastication-threatening maladies such as gum disease, tooth decay, and oral cancer (a $94 value), while a cleaning removes tartar and moves plaque to the proverbial mantel, right next to spelling bee trophy (a $99 value). Diagnostic x-rays round out the visit, with expert eyes scrutinizing every area in search of decay, tumors, cysts, bone loss, and cane-carrying men sporting red- and white-striped attire (a $146 value).
Elite Brights’ at-home advanced teeth-whitening kit lets users buff molars and blanch incisors without swapping plush recliners for dentist chairs. After a routine tooth brushing, flossing, and fang sharpening, customers apply the kit’s pale-making gel to a plastic whitening tray. They then install the tray securely in the mouth and fit an LED light against the front teeth to activate the gel’s hydrogen peroxide cleaning agent, brightening chompers without harming preexisting dental fixtures, such as permanent harmonicas. The kit comes with enough gel for 2–5 whitening treatments, allowing clients to spread their dental purification over time.
Helmed by a trio of attentive dentists, 34th Street Dental Care makes mouth pearls glow during Kor Whitening treatments. Powered by deep-bleaching technology, the Kor Whitening system blanches enamel more dramatically than a surprise brushing from Hamlet’s ghost. Suitable for patients ages 14 and older, the treatment is gentle on sensitive teeth but powerful enough to dissolve stains from coffee, wine, and medications, making pearly surfaces appear up to 16 shades brighter. After two weeks of bleaching, the dental team completes the treatment with a one-hour inspection and a celebratory conga dance.
Sunny yellow walls and a crackling fireplace greet patients at Gentle Dentistry, abating the anxiety classically associated with going to the dentist. Instead of defaulting to a cold and sterile vibe, Dr. Sarita Woodson and her team of dental professionals cultivate a spa-like atmosphere, complete with a play area for children.
In similarly welcoming treatment areas, Dr. Sarita offers preventative and cosmetic dental services for the entire family. Regular exams, x-rays, and cleanings help ward off cavities, and treatments such as mercury-free fillings and Invisalign correct imperfect smiles. For yellowed teeth, Dr. Sarita offers three whitening solutions: prescription-strength Crest Whitestrips, custom-made trays to wear during sleep, or in-office Zoom! treatments that brighten teeth or pearl necklaces by up to eight shades.
