We are in our final month of summer, but that doesn’t mean you should slack on keeping your teeth healthy and clean!  Check out these tips to keep your summer smile shining through the following seasons from your trusted cosmetic dentistry resource near Winnetka.  


Keep A Consistent Routine

We know schedules change over the summer and families are out late doing many different activities, but don’t let anyone skip brushing, no matter how late you get home from a dinner or a family visit. Make sure everyone is still brushing twice a day for two minutes with fluoride toothpaste and flossing at leasing once a day.


Avoid Sugary Drinks And Snacks

Summer has us wanting to eat ice cream for every meal. It’s common for families to sip on drinks and eat tasty snacks while at festivals, sports outings, or community events. However, instead of juices and sodas, make sure your family is drinking water to fight off the heat. Additionally, snack on things like apples and other healthy foods with less sugar.


Wear A Mouthguard

Summer sports are fun to be a part of, but make sure you stay safe during contact sports. We recommend wearing a mouthguard to protect your teeth if you play sports such as baseball, lacrosse, and even bicycling.


Visit The Dentist

Make an appointment for the dentist before school starts—August is the perfect time to get a cleaning before the new academic year. Dental checkups are the best way to make sure you and your child’s teeth are healthy and clean.

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.
