Do you have any questions about Esplanade Dental Care, the services we offer, and what you can expect when you visit us? We’ve compiled many of our most popular FAQs below so that visitors can easily find the information they’re looking for. If you’re still left wondering about something, don’t hesitate to contact us directly here in Downers Grove, IL so that our team can assist you.
What is the best way to replace missing teeth?
Our dentists highly recommend dental implants as the premier reconstructive service for several reasons. Unlike traditional tooth replacement options, dental implants recreate every part of the natural tooth, resulting in excellent aesthetics, lifelike function, and long-lasting durability. Most patients with dental implants will be able to enjoy their new “teeth” for the rest of their lives, as long as they take the time to properly maintain them.
However, there is no one service that can be a perfect fit for everyone. Dr. Albert will work closely with patients in order to help them understand all of the available options and what will fit their personal needs and goals best.
Will I need to see a separate doctor for dental implant surgery?
No! Dr. Albert has the skills and advanced training needed to perform every stage of your implant procedure here in-office. This will save patients valuable travel-related time and cost and also help them feel more comfortable throughout the treatment process.
Can you help me improve the way my smile looks?
Of course. Our practice is home to a wide variety of cosmetic services that are designed to elevate your smile’s aesthetic appearance, and they can be combined into a personalized makeover plan that brings each patient’s goals to life. Possible options include teeth whitening, direct bonding, porcelain veneers, metal-free restorative work, and more.
I want to straighten my teeth, but I don’t want to wear metal braces. Is there another option?
Absolutely. Esplanade Dental Care offers Invisalign® clear aligners as an alternative orthodontic solution that prioritizes aesthetics. Instead of dark-colored wires and brackets, patients will wear clear, highly subtle aligners that blend in with their teeth. These aligners are also conveniently removable, which means they can take them out when eating, brushing, and flossing for maximum convenience.
Do you see dental emergencies?
Yes! If you are experiencing a serious dental injury and/or pain, contact us here in Downers Grove, IL. Our dentists strive to make time for urgent cases as soon as possible and can often even see patients on the same day as their initial call.
