Sunny yellow walls and a crackling fireplace greet patients at Gentle Dentistry, abating the anxiety classically associated with going to the dentist. Instead of defaulting to a cold and sterile vibe, Dr. Sarita Woodson and her team of dental professionals cultivate a spa-like atmosphere, complete with a play area for children.
In similarly welcoming treatment areas, Dr. Sarita offers preventative and cosmetic dental services for the entire family. Regular exams, x-rays, and cleanings help ward off cavities, and treatments such as mercury-free fillings and Invisalign correct imperfect smiles. For yellowed teeth, Dr. Sarita offers three whitening solutions: prescription-strength Crest Whitestrips, custom-made trays to wear during sleep, or in-office Zoom! treatments that brighten teeth or pearl necklaces by up to eight shades.
With a doctorate in dental surgery, master’s degree in public health, and years of experience, Dr. John P. Sahagian is fully armed to battle tooth decay and all ailments of the mouth. He also stays abreast of modern dental developments, ensuring the most comprehensive care in general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry. Services include everything from making over smiles with tooth whitening and porcelain veneers to repairing them with full-mouth reconstruction. Saturday and evening hours are available.
AV Dental spruces up Chicagoland smiles with its toothsome array of general and cosmetic dental services and in-house denture lab. An investigative exam first checks the chompers for mastication-threatening maladies such as gum disease, tooth decay, and oral cancer (a $94 value), while a cleaning removes tartar and moves plaque to the proverbial mantel, right next to spelling bee trophy (a $99 value). Diagnostic x-rays round out the visit, with expert eyes scrutinizing every area in search of decay, tumors, cysts, bone loss, and cane-carrying men sporting red- and white-striped attire (a $146 value).
Helmed by a trio of attentive dentists, 34th Street Dental Care makes mouth pearls glow during Kor Whitening treatments. Powered by deep-bleaching technology, the Kor Whitening system blanches enamel more dramatically than a surprise brushing from Hamlet’s ghost. Suitable for patients ages 14 and older, the treatment is gentle on sensitive teeth but powerful enough to dissolve stains from coffee, wine, and medications, making pearly surfaces appear up to 16 shades brighter. After two weeks of bleaching, the dental team completes the treatment with a one-hour inspection and a celebratory conga dance.
Attending lectures, meetings, and conventions are just a few of the ways the staff at Park Place Dental make sure they stay abreast of the latest innovations in dental care. Dr. Jason Genta uses this information to perform treatments, preventative and curative, as well as cosmetic procedures such as tooth whitening. During appointments, optional nitrous oxide gas helps patients relax, which can be difficult to do when they’re focused on memorizing the dentist’s every move in case they need to play one on TV.
