Custom-made to straighten your teeth, Invisalign® clear aligners are nearly invisible. Each aligner is made of a proprietary, multi-layer SmartTrack material, which gently shifts your teeth into place over time, moving them slightly both horizontally and vertically and even rotating them if necessary. The aligners are engineered so that as you change to the next set of aligners (typically every two weeks), your teeth gradually move into their correct position.More information
Dental implants provide a comfortable, permanent solution to lost teeth. The dental replacements are attached to titanium posts that actually fuse to your jawbone and become natural anchors, so your new teeth will remain securely in place without the need for messy adhesives. A fully restored smile is as healthy as it is beautiful by promoting bone growth and reducing the risk of receding gums.More information

Regular Check-ups and Professional Cleaning
At Lifetime Smiles Dental - Oak Park, we firmly believe that the best dental care is preventative dental care.

If you are unhappy with chipped, slightly crooked, misshapen, or discolored teeth, then Lumineers may be right for you. Unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers are ultra-thin and require no grinding down of the original tooth, therefore the process is completely painless and reversible. Lumineers are an ideal alternative to minor orthodontic treatment and are engineered to provide you with a beautiful smile for many years to come. During your exam and consultation, our Certified Lumineer Dentist can evaluate your situation, explain the difference between veneers and Lumineers and help you decide what will best serve your needs.
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells that are bonded to the front of the teeth in order to change their color, shape, size or length. Porcelain veneers are stronger, more durable, and resist stains better than resin veneers. These veneers are a popular option because they mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. Dental veneers can also provide relief from the tooth pain associated with worn enamel.
Invisalign and Invisalign Teen
Lifetime Smiles Dental - Oak Park is proud to be your Invisalign provider in Oak Park, Illinois. Invisalign is an innovative alternative to traditional metal braces for correcting dental misalignment or spacing problems. Your teeth are gradually shifted into their optimal position by a series of custom-made clear aligners that are virtually invisible, comfortable to wear, and easily removed to accommodate activities such as eating or sports. Working adults are able to maintain a professional appearance and enjoy the dramatic improvement of properly aligned teeth without feeling self-conscious. Invisalign Teen is specially designed to complement your adolescent patient's lifestyle, which also encourages their enthusiastic participation in a way that traditional metal braces simply can't match.
Professional Teeth Whitening with Opalescence Boost
Even the most carefully treated white teeth can fade over time or become discolored as the result of diet, personal habits, or aging. We will work with you to determine the best teeth whitening treatment for your personal needs and lifestyle.
The Opalescence Boost system utilizes a powerful teeth-whitening gel to brighten your smile by several shades in a short amount of time. We also offer the option of using custom Take Home Trays for your whitening treatments. Depending on your needs and preferences, our dental team will help you choose whether to receive this treatment in our office or apply it yourself in the comfort and convenience of your own home with a teeth-whitening kit.

At Lifetime Smiles Dental - Oak Park, we apply a custom, natural-looking crown (or "cap") in cases where decay or trauma has done too much damage to completely restore the original tooth. Crowns are an excellent alternative to extraction that offer long-term durability, protection from decay or cracking, and an improved, natural appearance.
A crown may be right for you if...
- you have chipped or broken teeth that are immediately visible as soon as the dental array is revealed. This situation could require tooth removal and cause a gap in your teeth that requires a surface replacement.
- you have undergone a root canal that requires a significant portion of the tooth to be removed to make way for the support structure and the cleaning process.
- you have weak and damage-prone teeth.
- you have a tooth that is severely discolored.
Our dental team at Lifetime Smiles Dental - Oak Park utilizes the most advanced dental equipment in order to provide treatment of the highest quality, safety, and comfort. Our dental team uses the iTero Element scanner to produce high-resolution 3D images of your upper and lower dental structures. The iTero's virtual model of your teeth is created without the time and discomfort required by the use of traditional x-ray photos and the dreaded dental impression goo necessary for making a physical model. In only seconds, your dental team will be able to show you a model of your teeth's current condition as well as a side-by-side simulation of your smile with its ideal spacing and alignment. The unprecedented resolution capable with the iTero Element allows our hygienists and dentist to provide you with a higher quality of oral health care by identifying dental problems such as early decay or microscopic fractures in a fraction of the time required by old-fashioned methods. This means that your dentist can give you a diagnosis with greater accuracy while also decreasing the amount of time for your examination.
