Dr. Kapers and the staff at Creating Smiles, PC believe that a visit to the dentist doesn't have to be scary or painful. Their modern dental equipment is less invasive and gentler than the stereotypical tools. Both offices are equipped with digital x-rays that minimize radiation exposure. Intraoral cameras show patients what's going on inside their mouths, and full sedation is an option for patients who don't want to think about having a mouth at all. Dr. Kapers' surgical techniques are also gentler; air abrasion cleans cavities of decaying enamel without the sound and vibration of the drill.
With a history stretching back nearly 30 years, Tan City of Valpo prides itself on its well-trained team. Techs assist guests with all their needs, from choosing between UV and spray tanning to picking the best lotion and accelerator, and their clean bronzing studio offers a variety of each. Besides imbuing skin with golden hues, they also provide teeth whitening, using their own Maxx White system.
Dr. Ryan Molis specializes in Invisalign procedures, which he has performed since 2001, treating enough patients throughout his career to earn him a designation as an elite preferred provider and in the top 1% of all Invisalign providers. His staff at Molis Dental keeps patients smiling with everything from family check-ups to cosmetic laminates, crowns, and veneers.
Operating under the umbrella of Chicagoland Smile Group, the staff at both Olympia Fields Dental Associates and Oak Park Dental Group work to keep smiles healthy and bright. Although both dental teams are adept at general dentistry, helping patients maintain glittering smiles without using actual glitter, they also hold specialists among their ranks. These specialists have skills in oral surgery and extractions, as well as dental implants that can sometimes be made in just one day.
Both practices also strive to stay ahead of the curve in treatment technology. At Olympia Fields, high-powered microscopes and other tools give restorations a precise and comfortable fit, while at Oak Park, 3-D x-rays give dentists a better view of the entire mouth.
In addition to their toxin-busting, energy-rebalancing foot-cleanse sessions, Whitening Bright Studio's resident technicians have devoted themselves to helping people look younger and healthier fast with in-office and take-home teeth-whitening treatments. In their comfortable, spa-like whitening studio, they paint teeth with a peroxide gel and shine a cool LED light on them for 20–30 minutes. This activates the gel and rapidly removes evidence of tobacco smoke, coffee, or the inevitable yellowing that comes with age or eating yellow paint chips. Take-home whitening kits allow clients to continue the whitening at home with a gentler version of the in-office gel, a miniature LED lamp, and a Lilliputian technician.
