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.
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.

At Preferred Dental Spa, tooth whisperers apply a specialty Zoom! gel onto chompers, which then bathe in focused, intense light in three 15-minute cycles. The 45-minute service causes minimal discomfort, if any, and brightens teeth up to eight shades more efficiently than holding a flashlight between teeth. Zoom! reports that with careful upkeep, results can last for years.
In his oral auditorium packed with state-of-the-art dental tech, Dr. Philip Goduco bestows gleaming grins on the smile-shy. Zoom! whitening is a light-activated bleaching system that penetrates the enamel for a long-lasting, deep-seated alabaster, staving off the staining effects of a coffee, tea, or ink-drinking habit. Sessions generally produce little discomfort and take just 90 minutes, rendering mouth bones 7–10 shades brighter and up to 98% better at math.
