Dr. Drach and his fully licensed staff erase unwanted facial lines with meticulously administered injections of Botox, a protein that's FDA-approved to lessen the appearance of frowny brow dents for up to four months. Once administered, Botox battalions run to tensed muscles like a magnet does to The Terminator, impeding nerve impulses that cause lines and wrinkles. The 20- to 30-minute procedure may cause some discomfort, but it does not necessitate downtime. Wrinkles continue to recede in the days following the treatment, which may inspire patients to commission new passport portraits or revisit childhood hobbies, such as staring in the mirror for hours.
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.
The quartet of dental professionals at American Dental Associates, Ltd. unite a skill set that ranges from general oral care to specializations in endodontics and cosmetic dentistry. Each member of the team brings their own unique personality and approach to their profession, though they share a philosophy of patient education and communication. Before undergoing such dental treatments as implants, oral surgery, or teeth whitening, each client works one-on-one with their doctor to devise a treatment plan that addresses their current dental condition and previous life as a shark.
With nearly 20 years of experience in general dentistry, Dr. Kavita Gupta creates stunning smiles with comprehensive dental exams, x-rays, and cleaning. During the thorough exam, Dr. Gupta gently inspects oral interiors, using precision instruments to poke around for signs of cavities, gum disease, or vestigial extra tongues. Digital bitewing x-rays uncover lurking decay and irregularities with reduced radiation, and a refreshing cleaning purges plaque and banishes bacteria. To help ensure sterile cleansing, Dr. Gupta's practice employs a closed water system, which minimizes the presence of germs and off-course battleships. The modernistic dental office is adjacent to Elmhurst Memorial Hospital, which offers complimentary valet parking for patients. Dr. Gupta imparts dental advice and incisor serenades in both English and Hindi.
For nearly 15 years, Dr. Yeoh Koh has been putting patients at ease with her down-to-earth, personable approach to dentistry. She leads an equally compassionate team at Purely Smiles, where they revamp grins with general cleanings, restorative treatments, or cosmetic services such as teeth whitening and Six Month Smiles’ invisible braces. Advanced dental technology plays a vital part in all of their treatments. Depending on the procedure, they may use intraoral cameras, state-of-the-art cancer screening equipment, or digital x-rays that use lower levels of radiation, reducing the risk of patients turning into radioactive super villains.
Helmed by seasoned dentist Dr. Mahesh Patel, Family Dental Care of Chicago turns on smile high beams in one hour with Zoom! whitening. During the treatment, patients relax in a reclining chair while a light-activated gel bleaches away stains caused by coffee, red wine, and tonsil Rorschach inkblot tests gone awry. Some patients may be sensitive to the stain-fighting light, but any tingling will dissipate after the procedure. Bathed in bright colors and lush plants, Family Dental Care of Chicago specializes in a cornucopia of dental dealings from routine cleanings to full-mouth reconstruction.
