I Have A Missing Tooth. Should I Get A Dental Bridge Or A Dental Implant?
In some cases, a dental implant is required if there aren’t enough teeth to create a stable bridge. In other cases, you will have the choice between the two options. A dental bridge requires the smoothing of the two outer teeth that will be fitted with caps with a whole tooth affixed between them. A dental implant will function entirely on its own, and also create stability across your smile.
I Have Crooked Teeth. Is It Too Late For Braces?
No! In fact, we offer a teeth straightening solution designed for adults who want to straighten their teeth discreetly. It’s called Invisalign and it is incredibly low maintenance. You wear a set of trays for 20-22 hours a day for two weeks, then move on to the next set! You don’t have to adjust your diet or become acclimated to sharp metal brackets in your mouth.
I’ve Tried To Whiten My Teeth In The Past With Over-The-Counter Products, But They Don’t Work. Is There A Better Option?
Yes! At The Center For Dental Excellence, we offer many solutions for teeth whitening. From Zoom to Opalesence, we are sure to have a teeth whitening solution that meets your expectations for a whiter and brighter smile!
I Want New Teeth, But I Hate Dentures. What Can I Do?
How Often Do I Need To Get My Teeth Cleaned?
With proper brushing and flossing, you will want to get a routine dental cleaning every six months. If your teeth tend to build plaque faster, you may need to visit our Flossmoor dentists for a routine dental cleaning more frequently.
I Have Straight Teeth, But I Hate My Smile. Is There Anything I Can Do About That?
I Work And Go To School Full-Time And Can’t Get To Your Flossmoor Dental Office During Your Business Hours. Is There Another Time I Can Come In?
We are glad to work with you. Give us a call and we will figure out a day and time that works for you to visit our Flossmoor dental office.
My Dental Crown Came Loose, What Do I Do?
If your dental crown is loose, but hasn’t completely come off, call The Center For Dental Excellence and schedule an appointment to have it checked. If it has completely popped off, put it in a zip-lock bag and call our Flossmoor dental office to schedule an appointment for a repair.
I Have A Tooth Ache. How Long Do I Have To Wait To Get An Appointment At Your Flossmoor Dental Office?
If you call our Flossmoor dental office in the morning, we can see you by the afternoon! If you call us in the afternoon, we will be sure to get you in as soon as possible. We don’t make you wait weeks to be seen, or put you on a waiting list leaving you hoping that someone cancels their appointment. We know you need pain relief right away.
