Here at Chicago Beautiful Smiles, we now offer our patients who have missing teeth an amazing alternative to standard dentures, bridges, and partials to which they are accustomed. This procedure is a combination of cosmetic and restorative dentistry, and they are called dental implants. They can be used to replace one tooth or a number of teeth, as well as secure dentures or dental bridges to offer greater stability. They can also eliminate gray shadows often found under the crown. And when the dental crown is created by a skilled cosmetic dentist such as those at Chicago Beautiful Smiles, it can look as well as function just like a natural, healthy tooth. These dental implants will not only improve your smile but will mix perfectly with your teeth.

Our patients who choose dental implants find themselves once again enjoying life. Their new implants allow them to eat the food they want and, in some cases, allow them to speak more clearly. These sturdy dental implants will help you find a new sense of confidence in your smile and in your life.

It’s no secret that your smile says a lot about your confidence and how you feel about yourself — in both your personal and professional life. Many people believe that losing teeth is just a natural process of growing old. The truth is, you can usually keep your teeth all your life if you take care of them; however, people lose teeth for many different reasons, sometimes in spite of excellent care:

  • Tooth decay
  • Large fillings
  • Broken teeth
  • Accident or trauma
  • Gum disease

If you’ve lost one or more of your teeth, restoring the natural function and appearance of your smile can no doubt be difficult to accomplish, but with the help of Drs. Hartlieb and Ching – and today’s modern Cosmetic Dentures procedures — a full, natural-looking smile is much more attainable than ever before.

At Chicago Beautiful Smiles are proud to serve those in the Glenview, Northbrook, Winnetka, Highland Park, Deerfield, Chicago and North Shore areas.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

Dental implants are strong, natural-looking replacements for missing teeth. Not only do they provide the same function as your natural teeth, they look and feel so real that no one will be able to tell you ever lost a tooth to begin with. Implants also improve your overall oral health by preventing bone deterioration and preserving facial structure and if taken care of properly, they can last a lifetime.

Dental Implants & Dentures

Dental implants are also a great option for anyone who has become disheartened with their current dentures or bridges. Some choose to replace dentures with dental implants because they can heighten their range of function and can be cared for with normal brushing and flossing, just like a natural tooth. Others will choose to have their dentures “fixed” into place by using dental implants to securely hold the denture in position; this minimizes any slipping, clicking, or discomfort that can accompany poor-fitting dentures. The use of dental implants in order to retain a denture has become the standard of care.

Our talented dentists offer dental implants to patients seeking a lifelong solution for tooth replacement that functions naturally and looks amazing. We encourage you to discuss your tooth replacement options with Drs. Hartlieb and Ching by scheduling your consultation today.
