General & Family Dentistry

Family Dentistry

We don’t like to leave anyone out in our approach to general dentistry in Oak Lawn! Our family dental office provides services to suit every member of your household—from the youngest to the oldest—through all stages of life.

A person’s smile grows and develops with them over time, so it’s only natural that their dental needs would as well. Our dentists are specially trained to work with patients at all phases in their life. We’re prepared to meet the needs of each patient who walks through our doors.

Children’s Dental Care

Children’s Dental Care We recommend that young patients begin seeing us after their first tooth erupts, which usually happens near their first birthday. Their dentist can begin by providing dental recommendations, including home care and the rate at which they should visit our office. Children, whose mouths are in a constant state of development, have unique dental needs that need to be addressed with a family dentist.

It’s important to help your child form positive associations with visiting the dentist from a young age. Taking them to a kids’ dentist, who is prepared to speak them on their level and make them feel comfortable, can contribute to their willingness to seek dental care later in life.

Adult Dental Care

Adult Dental Care Though adults aren’t continuously growing in the same way that children do, their smiles do continue to develop and change with time.

Our family dentist is prepared to help adults of all ages with their oral health, from those in their late teens to those living out their golden years. We offer general dentistry in Oak Lawn to help adults maintain their smile, treat issues, and restore areas of wear and tear.

Preventative Dentistry

Maintaining proper care at home and visiting your dentist on a regular basis will help prevent dental problems from occurring or worsening. We highly recommend visiting our office every 6 months (or twice per year) to give our team a chance to get to know your smile, examine it for issues, and provide a thorough cleaning.

During each visit, we’ll clear away plaque buildup and consult you about your home care. This provides you with an opportunity to ask questions, learn more about your own smile, and stay on track with oral hygiene habits.

Even the most diligent brushers and flossers need the help of a professional dental hygiene specialist. Our team has the tools and skills necessary to reach where you can’t! Don’t give plaque or gum disease a chance.

Restorative Dentistry

Have you damaged or lost one or more of your teeth? We can help. Our family dentist in Burbank can help you regain full functionality through the addition of a dental implant or crown.

Dental implants are ideal for many patients who have lost one or more teeth. Replacing a missing tooth not only helps improve your overall oral health, it can also make eating, chewing, and speaking easier.

Dental crowns can be used to strengthen a tooth that has been damaged by decay, wear-and-tear, and dental trauma. In cases where a tooth has been compromised, a dental crown provides added protection for the root and helps maintain functionality.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Many adults seek cosmetic services to help improve their look and feel more confident. And why shouldn’t they? Added confidence can contribute to greater success in all spheres of one’s life. If there’s something about your smile that you would like to change, our team is prepared to walk you through your options. Schedule a consultation for a smile makeover with us today.

We offer dental implants, cosmetic bonding, and veneers to help perfect our patients’ smiles.

Dental implants can be used to cosmetically improve a person’s smile. The dental implants we provide at our Chicago dental office are custom-made to match your smile, offering a naturally beautiful look. They’re also stain-resistant, making them less susceptible to coffee, wine, and other known offenders.

Cosmetic bonding is done using a special tooth-colored material that can be placed and shaped for an altered appearance. Bonding is ideal for remedying minor imperfections such as chipped teeth, cracked teeth, and misshapen teeth.

Dental veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that fit over a person’s natural teeth. Veneers are ideal for people who are looking for dramatic and permanent results, as they cannot be removed or reversed once the procedure is completed. Like dental implants, veneers are also stain-resistant for long-lasting radiance.

Emergency Care

In life, accidents are bound to happen. What’s important when you’re at risk of losing a tooth is having a reliable team of dental care professionals on stand-by. If you’re in serious dental pain due to a chipped tooth, cracked too, knocked-out tooth, or some other kind of dental pain—we are here to help.

Our team is well-versed in treating a wide variety of dental problems a person might have. In cases of dental pain where there is no cause, we still recommend reaching out to schedule an appointment.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

What Our Patients Say

I love coming to this clinic because they always greet you when you come in and make you feel welcome. They are always running on time, which is great because I have to get to work as soon as possible. My daughter likes coming here too and she used to be afraid of going to the dentist.

I've always hated the dentist, but this place is awesome! First off, the staff is so great and welcoming. They made me feel 100% comfortable even though I was in a lot of pain and was honestly really nervous since it's been a while that I've seen the dentist. Dr. Theresa is by far the most personable and non judgmental dentist I've ever seen. She kept me informed the entire time during the visit and kept me calm. Love this place, maybe going to the dentist from now on won't be so stressful after all.

I had my best experience I've ever had at a dentist here at Oak Lawn Smiles. The whole office is modern and the staff is very friendly! My dentist was very conservative with her approach on what to do with my situation. 10/10 would recommend to other people to check this place out.
