Here are two main parts of a natural tooth, the root and the crown. The crown is what is visible in the mouth. The crown is used for chewing and it helps maintain the shape of the face. The root is what attaches the crown to the jaw and holds it in place. A dental implant is a modern and reliable way to replace a crown and root when they are damaged or lost.
At Smile First, we utilize our proficient dental scanning system to not only expedite the invisalign treatment planning process, but scanning your teeth is more accurate and less messy than traditional dental impressions.
Composite filling material (white filling) is a tooth colored material that can be used to restore cavities instead of the traditional silver fillings. Composite fillings have become the preferred choice for many dentists because they can be custom matched to the natural teeth.
A dental crown is constructed to restore a tooth to its original size and shape following extensive dental treatment like a root canal or extraction, advanced tooth decay removal or a broken tooth.
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain made by a laboratory to replace the outer surfaces of teeth that are either damaged or unattractive. Similar to crowns and bridges, veneers are permanently cemented into place resulting in a more attractive and healthier smile. Made to match individual teeth impressions, dental veneers are paper-thin pieces of tooth-colored porcelain designed to conceal damaged or discolored dental enamel (outer layer of the tooth).
Emergency Dental Services
Some dental issues can’t wait for an appointment. Broken or knocked-out teeth or severe pain caused by trauma or infection require emergency dental care. If you’re seeking a dentist in the 60659 area or need immediate advice, email Dr. Cristian and he will respond ASAP: firstname.lastname@example.org
Root Canal Therapy
For a tooth that is infected, damaged, or decayed, root canal therapy may be the best form of treatment. Root canals are used to save your natural tooth by removing the pulp, nerves, and any bacteria. The space left behind is filled with medicated dental materials that restore the function of the tooth.
Dental Exams & Cleanings
Regular dental exams are an important part of maintaining healthy teeth and a beautiful smile. When it’s time for their family’s dental exams, Chicago, Lincolnwood, and Sauganash residents come to Smile First Family Dentistry to make sure their teeth are as strong and healthy as possible.
Scaling and Root Planing
Scaling and root planing are non-surgical procedures directed at removing the cause of gingival inflammation. This is accomplished by cleaning the dental surfaces below the gums. These procedures are most effective in patients who are suffering from inflammatory gum diseases such as gingivitis and mild to severe chronic periodontitis.
