A beautiful, confident smile is something that everyone should have, which is why our team at Chicago Beautiful Smiles is committed to helping every patient who walks through our doors. One way to improve both the appearance and functionality of your smile is through dental implants. Dental implants in Highland Park are a permanent tooth replacement option that is placed directly into your jaw bone. We’ve outlined many of our frequently asked questions regarding dental implants below. 

Q: What are dental implants?

A: Dental implants are permanent tooth replacements composed of a small titanium post that is inserted into the jaw bone. A single crown, a fixed bridge or a partial denture can be attached to the post depending on the needs of the patient. 

Q: Who is a good candidate for dental implants?

A: One good thing about dental implants is how versatile they are. Nearly anyone with one or multiple missing, cracked or damaged teeth can benefit from dental implants. Feel free to schedule an initial consultation with our team to ask specific questions about dental implants and whether or not you would benefit. 

Q: What are some of the advantages of dental implants?

A: We’re glad you asked! Dental implants have a wide variety of benefits. Many patients prefer them over other tooth replacement options because of how permanent they are. Patients often report an increase in confidence following the placement of a dental implant. Implants also allow you to continue to eat your favorite foods and participate in an active lifestyle without constantly worrying about your teeth. 

Q: What is the success rate of dental implants?

A: The success of dental implants depends on the individual’s oral health habits. Generally speaking, implants have a success rate of 95 percent.

Real Patient Reviews

I have been going to this practice for several years now. I seemingly never have to wait when I arrive at the office and they are all very professional. Dr. Hartlieb and Dr. Ching have been terrific. In addition to doing great dental work, each has a great rapport with their patients. All of their assistants have been top notch as well.

I recently met with Dr. Ching to have some dental work done, and had an exceptional experience at this office! I usually hate going to the dentist, but this experience was different–this office is hands-down, THE nicest dental facilitiy I have ever seen.

- Shaun F.

This dental office is something I haven’t seen before. I had many past dental experiences at other dental offices (unfortunately not good) and finally I found Chicago Beautiful Smiles. Dr. Hartlieb had helped me restore my teeth to a beautiful smile.

- Natasa R.

I am a loyal patient for over (yikes!) 20 years because I appreciate the time, skill and patience of the entire team. As proof of my gratitude, I live in the city and reverse commute every six months for my appointment.

- Dennis H.

Dr. Hartlieb is by far the best dentist I have ever been to. He has transformed my smile into something of beauty. In fact, many people comment on how beautiful my teeth are who do not even know that I have had major dental work performed. I used to never want to smile that large before, but now I smile as big as possible when photographed.

- Fran L.

I always have a great experience when I go to Chicago Beautiful Smiles. The staff is amazing and Dr. Hartlieb and Dr. Ching are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The facility is incredible and I feel like I’m being treated with the best technology in the dental industry. Go to Chicago Beautiful Smiles for a consultation and I guarantee you will go back time and time again. It does not get any better in the Chicago area.

- Antonio S.

I had a great experience with Dr. Ching – very professional and thorough in his craft. I had been seeing my previous dentist for the past 15 years; however, I am ready to make the permanent switch to Chicago Beautiful Smiles. Dr. Ching is great at explaining the procedures he was performing and made my visit comfortable.
