Many phases of treatment are offered at the Winnetka Dental Group.
Hygiene and Prevention
Regular dental cleanings and examinations are critical to maintain optimal dental care. Our experienced hygienists will teach you the causes of dental disease and work with you in obtaining the skills necessary to control these causes. Methods of brushing, flossing, and nutritional counseling will be discussed so that you may continue a lifetime of good oral hygiene.
The doctor will examine your mouth for any signs of decay, broken, or leaking fillings. When necessary, composites (tooth colored mercury-free fillings), composite inlays, or porcelain crowns will be recommended.
Many problems respond well to reconstructive dental treatments. There are several methods available for replacing extensively decayed teeth or missing teeth. These include crowns, fixed bridges, and implant supported, partial, or full dentures. All of these techniques utilize materials and skills that restore function to your mouth, and give you a natural looking smile.
With the advancements in dental science, we now have a safe, successful, and proven procedure for the installation of permanent, non-removable replacement teeth. This procedure eliminates the frustration often caused by dentures or removable bridgework.
Our office has received advanced certification in NobelActive, Procera, All-on-Four and Teeth-in-an-Hour implant systems. Immediate implant placement is available. As each patient is unique, a thorough consultation with the doctor is necessary to evaluate the benefits of dental implants.
Aesthetics are an important aspect in how a person perceives their overall appearance. With today's modern dental advancements, a patient's self image can be enhanced through the utilization of bleaching, bonding, or porcelain veneers, All-Ceramic crowns, including Lava (zirconia crowns,) E-max and Empress crowns. In all cases, your tooth shade is carefully analyzed and the shade is determined by taking into account such considerations as stains, grooves, enamel thickness, complexion and age.
