The dentists at Euclid Smiles Family Dental can make missing teeth reappear. That is, of course, because they have mastered the art of dental implants, which fill in for missing chompers and match the shade of remaining teeth. The rest of their services range from cosmetic whitening and veneers to more traditional treatments, such as cleanings, sealants, root canals, and extractions. They also have a cure for crooked teeth. They outfit clients with Invisalign, clear plastic aligners that shift teeth to look better in yearbook photos or to bear no resemblance to the bite marks on a valuable pig statue.
Dr. Ghassan Abboud believes that if a business is a good member of the community and helps those around it, success will follow—a philosophy he explained during his interview with Naperville Community Television, Channel 17. It was this approach—doing things such as helping people with financing and offering free dental care to those in need on certain days—that allowed Abboud to expand from one 1st Family Dental office in 1996 to 10 offices in the Chicagoland area.
1st Family Dental believes in providing all patients—insured and uninsured—with affordable, high-quality dental care in an appealing setting at the hands of friendly, talented doctors and staff. The practice’s dentists have also helped draw in patients with their multiple awards, their credentials in everything from maxillofacial surgery to orthodontics to prosthodontics, and their refusal to use duct tape to attach crowns. Their cosmetic-dentistry services let clients revamp their smiles with Zoom! whitening treatments and let dental implants replace any missing teeth. The 1st Family Dental experts practice dentistry for the whole family, teaching young ones how to clean their teeth without having to smile while walking through a car wash.
Dr. Joseph A. Favia and his skillful staff polish pearly whites to a high shine inside a modern 2,500-square-foot office. To kick off the two-hour BriteSmile treatment, the staff leads patients on a tour of the facility, then lets patients scrub their chompers clean with a brand-new toothbrush. Dr. Favia then checks for existing restorations before beginning the first of three 20-minute applications of BriteSmile gel, whose low concentration of hydrogen peroxide can whiten smiles more gently and permanently than wearing a set of fake Dracula fangs. Following the trio of plaque purges, patients brush teeth a second time to ensure their new shade has set. As clients depart with shiny new grins, the staff will advise them on post-treatment protocols such as avoiding foods that stain and refusing to let toddlers finger-paint their back molars.
Metal amalgams have saved many teeth over the years, but they have also caused a good number of eyesores. Their metal surfaces gleam whenever someone takes a big yawn or bursts forth with a deafening Tarzan cry. That's why the doctors at Graceland Prairie Dental repair cavities and decay using tooth-colored composite material. This material discreetly blends with the surrounding tooth to restore it to full form and function.
The dental experts strive to keep their handiwork invisible in other treatments, too. They craft natural-looking porcelain crowns and bridges to replace damaged and missing teeth seamlessly. Invisalign braces straighten smiles while remaining as difficult to spot as a disco ball's diamond earrings.
For nearly 30 years, father-and-son dentists Mark and Elliott Levy have worked to improve the health and appearance of patients' teeth at Brite Bite Dental. They perform preventative and restorative treatments, using advanced technologies such as digital x-rays that patients can view on a 17-inch monitor in less than five seconds. Patients can also opt for cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening, veneers, or ClearCorrect orthodontics.
Dr. Maha Blaibel’s cut her teeth in the dental world by treating underprivileged children at the Infant Welfare Society and Boys and Girls Club of Chicago. Now firmly ensconced at RiverWalk Dental, she leads her friendly staff in providing patients of all ages with everything from routine checkups to cosmetic procedures. She corrects imperfections with porcelain crowns, veneers, and both invisible and traditional braces. For teeth discolored by drinking coffee or napping near a tanning bed, Dr. Blaibel uses Zoom!’s light-activated gel to lift stains and increase brightness by up to eight shades.
