If you have a tooth which is cosmetically damaged, you may want to have it replaced with a porcelain veneer. Our dentist will be able to let you know whether or not your cosmetic dental problem can be fixed by getting a dental veneer as part of your dental care Skokie Illinois. If the problem is purely cosmetic, a veneer will most likely be able to take care of the problem. If our dentist determines that your tooth also needs to be structurally improved, or to be strengthened, our dentist may recommend that you instead get a porcelain crown which will not only improve the appearance of your tooth, but also make it stronger. However, for teeth that only have cosmetic problems, dental veneers will work wonders. Dental veneers are actually thin shells of porcelain which are made to be permanently attached to the front of the tooth. They are made to perfectly color-match the adjacent teeth so no one will ever be able to tell you are wearing them. Porcelain veneers are extremely thin and extremely strong, and are made to last for many years. Among the many cosmetic dental problems which can be fixed using porcelain veneers are: teeth that are too short; teeth at a slightly misaligned; teeth that are chipped; teeth that have surface cracks in the enamel; teeth that are discolored and cannot be corrected using traditional whitening methods; teeth that have uneven gaps between them; and many other cosmetic dental problems. A patient may get only one porcelain veneer to fix a specific tooth, or can get many porcelain veneers to provide them with the perfect and beautiful smile that they have long dreamed of.

If you are looking for an expert dental practice that will be able to provide your entire family with dental services and information, then contact us at Old Orchard Dental. At our dental practice you can be seen by our top-notch dentist in Evanston for treatment as well as receive information about dental products including mouthwashes and fluoride rinses; just one of our top-notch dentists is Dr. Daniel Au.
In order to provide yourself with additional dental care, you may want to use either a mouthwash or a fluoride rinse. However, it is important to understand the benefits, and difference between these products. Both of these items can become part of your oral care routine, as indicated by our dentist in Evanston. A mouthwash can be very effective in freshening your breath, but it will not clean your teeth. A mouthwash should never be considered as replacement for tooth brushing or flossing. However, mouthwashes can wash away excess food particles in your mouth. This is important because food particles in your mouth can end up as plaque on your teeth. Over-the-counter mouthwashes do not contain fluoride, unless the label says so. A fluoride rinse can be effective in helping to keep your teeth healthy. However, a fluoride rinse will not remove plaque, so it is important to still brush and floss regularly. But, a fluoride rinse can protect your tooth from acids that are produced by the plaque in your mouth. This will make your teeth able to better fight off cavity-causing substances that naturally occur in the mouth. The fluoride rinse will help strengthen your tooth enamel and can help people who have weakened tooth enamel better fight off cavities. Both mouthwashes and fluoride rinses should be used after you have finished your tooth brushing and flossing. Mouthwashes are not recommended for children younger than six years. It is important to always follow label directions when using these products so that they will be used at proper strength, and for the correct time.

If you are experiencing the loss of teeth, you are probably looking for the best tooth loss solution. Today, many patients enjoy getting dental implants to replace missing teeth because dental implants look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. If you would like to learn if you are a good candidate for getting Skokie implants at Old Orchard Dental, we hope you will come and visit our dental practice soon.
When patients come to our practice wanting to get Skokie implants, one of our top-notch dentists will work with them to determine whether or not they are a good candidate for the procedure. Our dentist will need to determine whether your jawbone is thick enough and healthy enough to be able to securely hold dental implants. Just one of our top-notch dentist who is able to provide you with dental implants is Dr. Daniel Au. If it is determined that your jawbone able to withstand the dental implant procedure, our dentist will then proceed to surgically insert a titanium dental implant root into your jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. Dental implants can also be used to securely hold dentures and removable bridges in place. Once a dental implant root is inserted into your jawbone, there will be a healing period of about two months during which time the jawbone will fully heal, and the dental implant root will firmly fuse to the jawbone.
Once it is determined that the healing period is over, our dentist will then be able to permanently attach a beautiful porcelain crown to each dental implant root. At this point you will have complete dental implants in place, and you will be able to enjoy all of the benefits they have to offer. You will be able to speak and smile in total confidence. And, you will be able to eat anything you want in total comfort, without worrying that the dental implants will embarrass you in any manner. If well taken care of with regular brushing and flossing, and with periodic dental cleanings at our office, your Skokie implants should last a lifetime.
