If you are in any way unhappy with your smile, our Lincoln Park aesthetic dentists are here to help you. Today we are getting the ball rolling by reviewing some of the most popular dental treatments we offer. When you are ready to improve the state of your smile, you may benefit from…

Dental Whitening: professional whitening treatments lift stains from the surface of your smile, and return your enamel to its natural shade. Many patients achieve visible results after just one whitening session, but these treatments can be repeated over time to intensify and maintain results.

Composite Fillings: using dental resin, our team can close gaps between your teeth, repair dental damage, lengthen short enamel, and make misaligned teeth appear more even and seamless. We are able to place, shape, and cure resin in just one appointment; this is one of the fastest and most versatile ways to achieve your dental goals.

Invisalign: this treatment is a welcome alternative to traditional metal braces. Rather than moving teeth using brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to move teeth incrementally over a period of months.  

Six Month Smiles: by focusing our efforts on only those teeth that are most visible, and aesthetically most important, our team improves the appearance of our patients’ smiles in just six months. This treatment is ideal for those people who want to achieve a straighter smile, but otherwise have healthy bite alignment.

Veneers: a veneer is a thin cosmetic restoration; it is only about as thick as a contact lens. Once a veneer is bonded to your natural tooth it will completely cover and transform the appearance of that tooth. Over the course of two or three appointments our team will prep your tooth for treatment, and then craft veneers to your specifications, before attaching them to the relevant teeth.

Tooth Replacement: dental implant technology has transformed the way our Lincoln Park dentists can treat tooth loss. Implant technology allows our team to permanently ground your replacement teeth using titanium posts that extend into your jaw tissue. Essentially, this part of your replacement tooth mimics the natural tooth root. Dental implants deliver natural looking and feeling results, while supporting healthy jawbone tissue.

No matter where you are at on your dental journey, our Lincoln Park cosmetic dentists are here to help you get to your dream smile. Give us a call to schedule a personal consultation! 

Sleep apnea is undoubtedly a nuisance, but did you know that it is also a leading contributor to oral health and maxillofacial structure problems? The key to successful sleep apnea treatment is prompt treatment, which is why our Lincoln Park sleep apnea dentists recommend that you stay alert for these three symptoms of nighttime sleep apnea.

Snoring

Loud and persistent snoring is often a sign of sleep apnea; the snoring noise occurs as you try to force air past the oral tissues that are obstructing your airway. If your sleeping partner reports that your snoring is consistent and loud, it may be time to schedule a consultation for sleep apnea issues. You can also set a digital recorder, like the one that is likely on your phone, to record was you are asleep. You may be surprised to find out that your sleep troubles are actually attributable to snoring!

Dry Mouth

Sleep apnea sufferers struggle to inhale enough oxygen during the night, and this means that many of them start breathing through their mouths while asleep. If you are waking up with a dry mouth, scratchy throat, or tacky/sticky teeth, you should talk to your dentist or doctor about how you can restore healthy saliva levels. Chronic, untreated dry mouth will actually increase your risk of developing cavities, gum disease, and bad breath as time goes on.

Fatigue

Because sleep apnea manifests at night, it disrupts a patient’s healthy sleep pattern. Essentially, your body is “waking” up throughout the night in order to jumpstart the breathing process and obtain enough oxygen. You may not remember waking at all in the morning, but sleep apnea has diminished the quality of your sleep nonetheless. Tiredness, concentration problems, and headaches can all be connected to poor sleep.

If some of these sleep apnea symptoms seem familiar it may be time to reach out to our Lincoln Park sleep apnea dentists for a consultation. Together we can ensure that you sleep soundly and smile confidently.
