In practice since 1987, Dr. Jeffrey Leibowitz focuses not just on teeth, but on how a healthy mouth can affect overall health. With this in mind, he takes preventative measures to keep cavities and plaque at bay, though if something does go wrong he's also at the ready with restorative treatments such as root canals and crowns. And because Dr. Leibowitz believes that beautiful smiles contribute to self-esteem, he and his staff also perform cosmetic services, including whitening, veneers, and gum contouring.
The skilled team of Dr. Clifford Degel and Dr. Carmen Every-Degel combine dental dexterity with the latest technology to transform mangled mouths into beautiful smiles. During your introductory exam and cleaning, an intraoral camera captures images of your teeth and gums and instantly sends them to a screen mounted above the treatment chairs, giving you a foods-eye view of any problem areas. Technicians then take digital X-rays of your chomper collection, exposing subjects to less radiation than traditional X-rays and decreasing the risk of contracting spider-sense.

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Elmhurst Dental Suite's signature service is the dental implant procedure performed by Dr. Kayhan Civelek. Implants can be placed as single or multiple units depending on the number of missing teeth. In order to have a successful dental implant, sinus augmentation or ridge modification may be necessary. A key to implant success is the quantity and quality of the bone where the implant is to be placed. These pre-implant procedures have been shown to greatly improve appearance and increase chances for successful implants that can last for years to come.
