what to expect during

6-mONTH CHECKUPS

According to the American Dental Association, you should visit a dentist every six months. During regular checkups at Lake Bluff Dental, Dr. Griffin will examine your teeth and gums for any signs of dental health issues. As part of our oral hygiene appointments, our team will clean your mouth to ensure that it is free of substances like plaque and tartar that can cause cavities. We’ll also offer fluoride treatments to keep your enamel strong and healthy.

Understanding

General Dentistry Services

dental sealants

This completely non-invasive treatment protects cavity-prone teeth from tooth decay. A Dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating that is painted onto the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. The sealant quickly bonds into the depressions and grooves of the teeth, forming a protective shield over the enamel of each tooth. This ensures that bacteria, acids, and food particles never come into direct contact with rear molars— teeth that are at high risk of developing cavities.

GUM DISEASE & periodontal care

Gum disease (also known as periodontal disease) affects nearly half of American adults. This common dental health issue is caused by poor oral hygiene, though genetics can also play a large role. If you notice signs of gum disease like blood when you brush and floss, inflamed gums, or a receding gum line, periodontal care at Lake Bluff Dental will help you halt and reverse the issue. Call us as soon as possible to make an appointment to get your gums back to health.

How to Treat cavities and tooth decay

At Lake Bluff Dental, we offer composite, tooth-colored fillings to treat cavities. This means that if you suffer from tooth decay, your filling will not negatively affect the aesthetics of your smile. Dr. Griffin will remove any damaged tooth material and replace it with a natural-looking filling that matches the exact color of your teeth.

TAKE-HOME & IN-OFFICE teeth whitening OPTIONS

If you would like to enhance and brighten your smile, we offer both take-home and in-office whitening that provides faster, safer results than any over-the-counter product. Our whitening agents are more powerful and the trays we use for the procedure are custom-made to fit your smile perfectly, which means no bleach will end up on your gums.

bonding, shaping, and contouring

Patients with misshapen, small, discolored, or slightly gapped teeth can improve the appearance of their smiles with this non-invasive cosmetic procedure. In some ways, the process of dental bonding is similar to a sculptor shaping clay. Dr. Griffin will apply dental resin to your tooth, then shape and mold it into a more aesthetically-pleasing form. Shaping and contouring is also used along with this procedure to shape surrounding teeth and give you a seamless smile.

same-day emergency appointments

Yes! If you are in pain or suffering from any kind of dental emergency, we offer expert care and efficient treatment to get you smiling again. We consider a dental emergency to be any oral issue that is causing you pain that you cannot treat on your own. This includes everything from a persistent toothache to a tooth that has been knocked out in an injury. Even if you aren’t sure if your situation qualifies as an emergency, don’t hesitate to reach out and speak with our compassionate, knowledgeable team. Call us now at (414) 962-1800.
