Helmed by experienced dentist Dr. Robert M. Thies, Amazing Smiles brightens up chompers in a welcoming dental office. Flanked by skilled assistants, Amazing Smiles? dentists treat the entire family, examining the pearly whites of adults, children, and teething venus flytraps. The office offers a range of services, from root canals and cleanings to cosmetic-dentistry procedures such as Invisalign, veneers, crowns, and bridges. Amazing Smiles maintains a commitment to both the health of patients and the environment, boasting an energy-efficient building, a range of recycling practices, and digital x-rays.
At Artistic Dentistry, Dr. Joel Akroush anchors general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry procedures to advanced technology, operating in an all-digital, paperless environment. Dr. Akroush?winner of the Nobel Biocare Platinum Award for dedication to implant dentistry in 2001?graduated from Loyola University's School of Dentistry in 1992, the same year auto mechanics quit performing root canals.
The knowledgeable dentist assesses and fosters oral health with digital x-rays, intraoral cameras, electric dental tools, and a computer system that produces simulated images of patients' smiles prior to the procedure. A leading provider of Zoom! teeth-whitening in the Chicagoland area, Dr. Akroush wields the WhiteSpeed device to brighten teeth by up to 14 shades, while simultaneously keeping patients distracted and entertained by providing 3D glasses that allows them to watch Netflix during the procedure. An Identafi 3000 device screens for oral cancer with light wavelengths, and their Picasso Diode laser can help zap away oral lesions and sensitive roots.
At Universal City Dental Center, Dr. Jirair Gasparian and his team perform a variety of procedures intended to protect patients' teeth and gums. Periodic checkups both detect and treat signs of trouble before they become serious complications, but when action is required to correct a problem, the practice offers surgical as well as noninvasive options.
Porcelain crowns and veneers conceal signs of damage, dental implants help fill any gaps, and tooth-colored composite fillings seamlessly replace decay. Additionally, Invisalign straighteners even out smiles, and Rembrandt teeth-whitening products brighten the stains caused by coffee, cigarettes, or a career spent taste-testing food coloring.
All Perfect Smiles' team—three dentists and one periodontist—collaborates to brighten smiles with a suite of preventive, restorative, and cosmetic procedures. Armed with more than 25 years of dental experience, the staff tend to teeth with cleanings, root canals, whitening treatments, and orthodontia such as Invisalign. The team can also resolve niche issues, ranging from sleep apnea to pediatric dental maladies. Regardless of the treatment, the team’s focus on patient education ensures that, unlike people who eat Pop Rocks, patients always understand what happens in their mouths.
Dr. Elizabeth Reiser-Loeber leads the tooth-savvy team at Orland Smiles in a mission to clean teeth and promote oral health above and below the gum line. To kick off the roughly 30-minute visit, dental assistant Starlette helps the patient settle into a chair and select his or her entertainment from an array of magazines, DVDs, or invisibly caged mimes. Orland Smiles' hygienist Krystyna then polishes chompers to a gleam, eradicates tartar build-up, and administers two bitewing x-rays, before Dr. Reiser begins the oral exam. The dental doyen wields the DIAGNOdent laser to detect hidden cavities and stashes of walnuts.
At Smiles of Orland Park, Dr. Robert Q. Marshall relies on his two decades of dental experience and his mastery of up-to-date techniques to patch smile gaps with natural-looking implants. A consultation determines if the client's jaw, gums, and ability to whistle high notes are in proper condition to proceed. Then, Dr. Marshall anchors the implant with a metal root that bonds to the gums over the course of a few months. At last, Dr. Marshall attaches an ivory abutment, which is held firmly in place and blends seamlessly into the smile like a caterpillar napping on a Jackson Pollock painting.
