Chicago, turn to “mighty multitaskers” of the dental world, Porcelain Veneers, for a dazzling smile

Let’s say the bleaching trays didn’t take. Your stains were resistant to in-office, at-home treatments, or a combination of both. Nevertheless, you’re not “stuck” with discolored teeth. Even the darkest stains are no match for these ultrathin layers of porcelain; bonded to your natural teeth, they cover stubborn surface stains caused by years of coffee consumption or deeper stains caused by cumulative wear, excess fluoride, or certain medications. Unlike whitening treatments, veneers make a number of other embarrassing conditions in the way of your dazzling smile disappear, including: Fractures, chips and breaks Crowding or uneven spacing Gaps in front teeth … Continue reading

Avoid the pitfalls of teeth grinding with your Chicago Dentist

Grinding is something that you don’t want to hear from the gears of your car, nor from your mouth! In today’s hectic society, however, the fact is that many more people show signs of bruxism, the condition in which the jaw clenches or grinds, wearing on teeth. At Big Smile Dental, we help our patients look and feel their best, which sometimes includes finding a solution to teeth grinding. But first, we must use our best Chicago detective work to recognize symptoms of this condition: Biting surfaces of teeth become worn down from clenching and grinding with extreme force.

Your Chicago Dentist can design dentures to give you a great new smile

When we smile, the last thing we want is to show off soft, pink gums and no teeth. Next in the line of nightmares is having a smile that looks anything but natural. In the good old days, dentures were so uniform and basic that every person who had a denture looked pretty much the same. Though function was restored, little though was given to the individuality of each person’s smile. Today, thankfully, we are as focused on aesthetics as we are on functionality. What this means is that your Chicago dentist doesn’t make your grandma’s dentures. On a technical … Continue reading

The tooth of the matter: Not all Chicago cosmetic dentistry is created equal

Dr. Theodore M. Siegel, Smiling woman with silicone trainer close up.

There was a time when a dentist was no more than a tooth repair-person, but those days are long gone, and today’s patients expect more from dentistry. You want to love your smile, and attract attention for all the right reasons every time you open your mouth. For your most beautiful smile, you need a cosmetic dentist. What certification? You might assume that anyone in Chicago calling herself or himself a cosmetic dentist has received specific training and passed cosmetic dentistry certification to earn the right to that title. You would be wrong. Cosmetic dentists are not required to have … Continue reading

Your smile holds the wisdom of regenerative medicine

Dr. Theodore M. Siegel Describing wisdom of regenerative medicine

We hear a lot about stem cell research in the news today, but the subject is still hazy for most people. Stem cells are not yet programmed for muscle, bone, cartilage, or other specialized uses. By watching stem cells develop, researchers learn how these tissues grow. That knowledge builds an understanding of how to guide the body into producing healthy cells to replace diseased ones. Your wisdom teeth could play an important role. About 65 percent of the global population develops wisdom teeth, the four “third molars” furthest back in the mouth. It is believed that the other 35 percent … Continue reading

TEETH WHITENING WITH PORCELAIN VENEERS

Click above image to watch video testimonial Porcelain has been an amazing introduction to the cosmetic dentistry when it comes to restorations and creating whiter teeth. Teeth that are yellowing, stained, discolored, or dark can keep a person from having a charming smile and give a negative impression of his or her personality. People who have teeth that are discolored or stained tend to become self-conscious and reluctant to laugh or smile in public. This is very disheartening as that person will not be able to savor the joy of smiling, laughing, and having a cheerful personality. However, the ideal … Continue reading

Invisalign: An invisible sign of the times

Dr. Theodore M. Siegel Describing invisible sign of the times

“You’ve got something stuck on your teeth.” It’s always embarrassing to hear that phrase. It’s even worse when the something is bright silver, shaped like a train track, and it’s going to be stuck there for years. Yes, braces do a great thing for your teeth, but not so much for your social life. In the past, there was no choice. Your smile had to get worse before it could get better – or else you could live with crooked teeth forever. Of course, that was in the old days, when blackberry was a fruit, drivers had to tell cars when … Continue reading

What can I expect from a root canal treatment?

The 411 on dentistry’s most feared treatment While it is unfounded, our society has spread a dread of root canal therapy. The root canal’s bad reputation is perpetuated in large part by a lack of understanding. Let’s demystify with a few simple answers. Why is a root canal needed? When a tooth has a microscopic crack, is broken, or has a large area of decay, infection may reach the pulp chamber inside the root. That inflames the nerve and causes acute pain, sometimes accompanied by facial swelling and tender gums.Root canal therapy saves the tooth, usually avoiding the need for … Continue reading

Love bites: A new answer to an age-old question – What do men want?

We all have our stressful moments. For single women, some of the most stressful come when standing in front of a mirror. If only you had a crystal ball that could see into the minds of men, you could prioritize your beauty routine and save yourself a little time – and maybe even some stress. Match.com has provided the next best thing! They spent three years asking thousands of men what they judge women on. Unsurprisingly, more than half of the list based on a woman’s appearance. However, you might not guess what tops the list. Nearly 60 percent of … Continue reading
