As we age, the likelihood of losing a permanent tooth increases. Among the main reasons for tooth loss in adults is untreated or mistreated dental cavities or tooth decay.

If you are missing a tooth or several teeth, contact the Chicago Beautiful Smiles office of cosmetic dentistry in Winnetka, IL where we perform leading means of restoring your beautiful smile. In this month’s blog, we will detail three options you will have to replace your missing teeth.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are the most popular style of replacement due to the integration with your natural bone, replacing your natural tooth root. The implants are made from titanium and securely implanted into your gum and jaw, a prosthetic tooth is attached.

Whether you lost your tooth due to injury or several teeth due to periodontal disease, dental implants may be your best option.

At Chicago Beautiful Smiles, we understand dental implants can be a costly procedure, which is why we offer patient financing through Care Credit. Contact our office to learn more and to schedule your consultation.

Dental Bridges and Implant Crowns

Both implant crowns and implant bridges are restoration services supported by implants. Your dentist will use the bridge or crown to replace your missing teeth or protect as many of the natural teeth as possible.

Implant crowns are commonly used in patients missing one tooth in the front or back of their mouth. Implant bridges are commonly used to replace an entire row of missing teeth, spanning from three teeth to twelve. The benefits of dental implants include not only a major confidence boost but also the ability to eat, drink and speak more confidently with a sturdy, full set of teeth.

If you are looking to replace a single tooth with a stable, non-removable replacement, an implant crown may be your best option. Not only can this help delay bone loss around the natural tooth, but it can also help preserve the gum tissue surrounding this area.

Custom Cosmetic Dentures

Replacing a missing tooth or several teeth does not mean you have one solid option for tooth replacement. In fact, at Chicago Beautiful Smiles, we have several options for custom dentures:

  • Traditional full dentures
  • Immediate dentures
  • Overdentures
  • Removable partial dentures

After meeting with our doctors, we will create a custom set of dentures that will fit comfortably, be fully functional, help you establish a better oral health routine, and provide you with a beautiful, appealing smile.

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.
