A: The American Dental Association (ADA) guidelines recommend visiting a dentist at least twice a year for a checkup and professional cleaning. We recommend the same at our office. However, you may need more frequent visits, depending on your oral health.
A: Painless dentistry is a means of ensuring your total experience at our office is as stress-free and pain-free as possible. We’ll discuss your treatment options, some of which may require no local anesthetic, and whenever possible, alleviate pain in the way you’re most comfortable with.
A: Please call our office at (630) 848-2010 as soon as possible. We’ll be glad to work you in to our schedule during regular business hours if you have a dental emergency. If it’s after hours, over the weekend or during a holiday, call the office for the doctor’s emergency contact number.
A: Of course! We can help you achieve a whiter, brighter smile with either in-office or take-home, overnight teeth whitening. Our in-office teeth whitening in Naperville is completed in a single session. You can read or relax during the treatment and you’ll leave with dramatically whiter teeth. We also offer take-home, daily bleaching. We take impressions of your teeth and create a custom mouthguard that fits your bite. Each day, you’ll fill the mouthguard with a small amount of bleaching gel and wear it overnight or for a few hours during the day. The overnight bleaching process takes approximately two weeks and we can give you a stronger whitening agent than you can get on your own.
Over-the-counter daily bleaching products are also available but it’s important to only use bleaching treatments under the supervision of a dentist. The ADA recommends seeking professional advice first, including an examination and a diagnosis of the cause of your tooth discoloration, before beginning any bleaching program.
A: You’ll receive a warm welcome and once we have your medical and dental history, we’ll take you back to the treatment area. There, we’ll do x-rays, if necessary, examine your teeth, gums and temporomandibular joints (TMJ) and perform an oral cancer screening. After your Naperville dentist reviews your dental profile, they’ll explain their diagnosis. If you need treatment, they’ll also discuss your options, what you can expect and answer your questions. We’ll finish up by going over the costs, your insurance coverage and payment options to help you decide on the best plan for your needs.
During regular follow-up visits, we’ll examine your teeth and gums, screen for oral cancer, clean your teeth and make plans for treatment, as needed. We always discuss any pain or problems you’re having and answer all of your questions. Schedule your visit today by requesting an appointment online or by calling us at (630) 848-2010.
A: Yes. We accept many types of dental insurance and we’ll process your claim for you when we receive your co-payment. We also offer a low-interest payment plan and accept most major credit cards, including MasterCard and Visa.
Q: What happens if I have a gap in my teeth, a chipped tooth or teeth that don’t respond to normal bleaching methods?
A: Porcelain veneers are a great option for a variety of cosmetic concerns. They’re designed to look like your natural teeth and they’re individually and permanently attached to the front of your existing teeth. Bonding is another method that utilizes a composite material made of plastic to fill in areas of your teeth and correct chips or problems with shape. Both our Naperville porcelain veneers and bonding are color-matched to the rest of your smile for a beautiful, natural appearance.
