A Closer Look at All-on-4®

All-on-4® is a full tooth replacement treatment similar to full dentures; however, All-on-4® utilizes the support and strength of dental implants to anchor replacement teeth on both the top and bottom jaws. Just like full dentures, qualifying patients must have no remaining teeth (or a dentist or oral surgeon must remove any remaining teeth. Dr. Stein then places four titanium implants into both jaws to provide permanent support that prevents slipping like traditional dentures. Once implant placement is complete and the mouth has healed, our team designs and places custom prosthetic teeth to mimic a very natural-looking and fully-functional smile.

Candidacy

All-on-4® is a popular option for those who are looking for a stronger alternative to traditional dentures. However, we want to make sure that every patient receives a successful treatment. Determining the right patients for this procedure includes examining each prospective candidate’s:

  • Oral health history
  • Medical history
  • List of prescribed medications
  • History of tobacco use

Poor gum health can lead to implant failure, so treating and eliminating any present gum disease is crucial before treatment can begin. Systemic health conditions that could alter your mouth’s ability to heal, such as diabetes, should also be discussed with Dr. Stein. Additionally, any past or upcoming radiation therapy near the jaw could be a barrier to receiving implants.

Benefits of All-on-4®

When it comes to teeth replacement, All-on-4® treatment provides so many aesthetic and restorative benefits, including:

  • No more “slipping” dentures
  • Immediate teeth replacement for qualified candidates
  • Fewer dietary restrictions when compared to traditional dentures
  • Confidence and comfort when eating and drinking
  • Improved digestion thanks to stronger chewing abilities
  • No more denture palate over the roof of the mouth which could alter speech

Overall, All-on-4® functions a lot more like your natural teeth than traditional dentures.

Porcelain Veneers for a Full Smile Makeover

woman discussing porcelain veneers with dentist

You may think that porcelain veneers are a treatment reserved for celebrities, but so patients of Dr. Stein and Dr. Weiss are choosing porcelain veneers to create the smile of their dreams. The art of porcelain veneer design has improved drastically so that veneers no longer look opaque and overly-white but extremely life-like: your smile, but elevated! Below, learn more about this cosmetic dentistry treatment from The Stein Center for Advanced Dentistry.

When opting for veneer treatment, choosing a skilled cosmetic dentist is incredibly important. Veneers are an investment; don’t trust just anyone to design your new smile! For the highest level of precision and care in the greater Chicago area, choose Dr. Stein and Dr. Weiss. Our Skokie, IL practice is proud to serve patients from around the area and can give you peace of mind that you’ll love your new smile. Call us at (847) 676-3500.

Are veneers right for me?

Veneers are essentially a cover over your natural teeth. Made from medical-grade ceramic, veneers conceal a number of cosmetic flaws such as:

  • Chips in the enamel
  • Visible fracture lines
  • Gaps or uneven spacing
  • Crooked or crowded teeth
  • Deep discoloration
  • Misshapen and under-sized teeth

What can I expect?

Once you discuss treatment options with Dr. Weiss or Dr. Stein and determine that veneers are the best fit for you, our team will perform a thorough examination, looking for any signs of decay or gum disease. This is because teeth and gums must first be healthy before veneers can be placed. (This ensures that not only is your oral health taken care of, but that the effects of your new smile last as long as possible.)

Then, impressions and images will be taken of your smile to help our dental lab professionals create veneers that fit your mouth. A custom-shade analysis by your dentist allows you to control the color of your new smile. After a couple weeks, your new custom-made veneers should be ready to place.

Dr. Weiss or Dr. Stein will first prep each tooth to create a receptive surface for the permanent dental bonding agent. Each veneer is applied with the bonding and cured with a special dental light that instantly creates an extremely strong bond between the veneers and enamel.

Before beginning treatment, patients should understand that traditional porcelain veneers are considered a permanent cosmetic solution. The amount of enamel removed during the placement process is significant, and teeth are considered too vulnerable afterwards to not be protected by the veneer layer. (Because, unfortunately, once enamel is removed it cannot be replaced.) However, today, many minimal-prep and no-prep veneers require just a few millimeters of enamel removal: thinner than a fingernail! Some of these treatments are reversible, and are a great option for patients desiring to cover minimal cosmetic flaws.

How long do veneers last?

Veneers are not a forever treatment, but they do last a long time. Most patients discover that veneers hold up through day-to-day chewing, speaking and biting for up to 15 or 20 years. Routine dental cleanings and appointments, along with diligent at-home brushing, can help extend the lifetime of your treatment.

Crooked Teeth? A Bracket-Free and Wire-Free Solution

man smiling without any crooked teeth

Do you have “that tooth”? The one that sticks just a little too far out? Or maybe it overlaps the one right next to it. Maybe you have two of those teeth. It’s normal for teeth to not be perfectly straight and aligned, but for aesthetic reasons, we understand the desire to find a solution for “that tooth.” That’s why Dr. Abraham Stein and Dr. Zachary Weiss at The Stein Center for Advanced Dentistry is proud to offer several aesthetic dentistry treatments for patients who are dealing with slightly crooked or misaligned teeth. With today’s modern dentistry innovations, crooked teeth don’t necessarily mean the brackets and wires of traditional braces. Porcelain veneers offer a faster solution for correcting the imperfect line-up of your teeth. Learn more about porcelain veneers, available in our Skokie, IL practice, below!

What are veneers?

Think of veneers as covers for your teeth. Fabricated from very thin slivers of medical-grade ceramic, veneers are applied to the front teeth visible in your smile.

Why would I choose veneers?

Veneers are a popular aesthetic dentistry treatment because they camouflage a variety of aesthetic issues in otherwise healthy and functional teeth quickly. Veneers are usually a treatment of choice for those patients who have aesthetic issues that professional whitening or bonding cannot fix. They offer some of the most dramatic smile improvements and are completely custom to your current (and desired) smile.

How can veneers fix my crooked teeth?

Orthodontics like traditional braces and Invisalign® are great for addressing crooked teeth in combination with malocclusion (or bite problems) that stem from the upper and lower jaw not coming together properly. However, for patients without bite problems who simply desire a more aesthetic smile, veneers can offer positive results in just a matter of weeks –rather than months or years needed in traditional orthodontic work.

Dr. Stein or Dr. Weiss will first prep your teeth before veneers can be applied. This may require shaping and resizing of teeth –especially those which may be overlapping or sticking out from other teeth. This process won’t be painful, as local anesthetics will help reduce any mild discomfort.

What else should I know?

It’s important to note that porcelain veneers are usually considered a permanent treatment. This means that once placed, veneers should be maintained in order to provide maximum protection for your teeth. Due to the enamel that must be removed during the placement process, teeth that are treated with veneers can be more vulnerable to damage if the veneers are removed. However, teeth with veneers remain healthy and functional; the treatment process does not damage your natural teeth. For some patients, minimal-prep veneers offer an even slimmer veneer option that requires less enamel to be removed. These are not right for every patient, but Dr. Stein or Dr. Weiss can help you understand your specific treatment options during your aesthetic dentistry consultation.

When to See a Prosthodontist

The need to restore or replace teeth goes beyond what your family dentist can provide. A prosthodontist offers the expertise for a range of dental restorative issues. If your dentist has recommended advanced dental treatment, then you can find an experienced prosthodontist in the Skokie, IL area. The Stein Center for Advanced Dentistry offers all the procedures to improve your smile and your dental health.

Replacing Lost Teeth

Lost teeth can do more than impact your self-confidence. Missing teeth can cause jaw bone loss, tooth decay and receding gums. You may not realize that your speech and even the shape of your face can be altered by missing teeth. Dr. Stein and his friendly, professional staff can consult you on the best strategies for replacing teeth.

Dr. Stein may suggest dental implants as a permanent solution to one or more missing teeth. Along with replacing a gap in your smile, implants can also help prevent the loss of bone, and make eating and speaking more comfortable.

The Stein Center for Advanced Dentistry also provides dentures as a cost-effective option over implants. Dentures are bridges are commonly recommended alternatives if your existing teeth or gums are not healthy enough for implants. Modern dentures can be made to match the look of your teeth, so you can regain your full smile. Whatever Dr. Stein’s recommendation may be, he will ensure you get that bold smile back and with it a healthy and comfortable set of teeth.

Improving the Strength of Your Teeth

With age, teeth begin to weaken. Dr. Stein can determine when a tooth is losing integrity long before it’s at risk for breaking. Some of your teeth may have already begun to show signs of damage. Cracks and fissures in the enamel not only can lead to chips and broken teeth, they also have a greater potential for encouraging tooth decay. Dr. Stein may recommend a crown to reinforce a weakening tooth or conceal a crack. Porcelain crowns restore the strength and look of pearly whites and can be an effective proactive measure for older adult dental care. As an experienced prosthodontist, Dr. Stein can take steps to help keep your teeth from breaking down.

Innovative Ways to Smile Better

You may pay a visit to a prosthodontist even when you do not require serious dental restoration. As a respected cosmetic dentist, Dr. Steins also offers ways to renew your smile, so you feel better about yourself.

Porcelain or composite veneers can bring back the brilliant whiteness to your teeth. Dr. Stein may recommend veneers when common whitening agents haven’t succeeded in removing stains or discoloration. Veneers are lasting and stain resistant and enhance the brightness of your smile in just a few office visits.

Chipped or damaged teeth can also discourage a confident smile. However, they too can be easily repaired using dental bonding. Dr. Stein can use a versatile composite filler to fill in chipped teeth or smooth out cracks in enamel. Dr. Stein can also repair excessive spacing between teeth using this procedure. In some instances, he may recommend bonding over a veneer to cover up discoloration as a better option.  Dr. Stein always looks for what’s best for his patients. His goals are to give you the smile that makes you happy using the best methods possible.

All-On-Four®: Stabilizing Dentures and Improving Lives

All-On-Four® is an innovative procedure for replacing a full arch of teeth with reliable, solid dentures.

Traditional dental implants may require six implants to build stability. With All-On-Four, your denture will not move, so you can eat, smile, and live your life confidently, without worrying about how your teeth will perform.

Visit the Stein Center for Advanced Dentistry in Skokie, near Chicago, to find out if All-On-Four is a possible solution for your oral comfort and function.

Give Your Teeth a Good “Spring Cleaning”

Give Your Teeth a Good “Spring Cleaning" with a Visit to Your Skokie IL dentistA good spring cleaning does your home good; the fresh, clean spaces after those dreary winter months can do wonders for improving your outlook on life. So why can’t we extend the idea of spring cleaning to every area of our lives — including our oral health? At The Stein Center for Advanced Dentistry, we’ve rounded up our tips for giving your oral care routine a spring cleaning. There’s a lot you can do to freshen up your teeth and gums and give yourself a reason to smile this spring.

Spring is a great time to check in with your Skokie, IL dentist to make sure your teeth are strong and healthy before the summer months bring vacations, travel and outdoor adventures. If it’s been more than six months since your last cleaning and exam with Dr. Abraham Stein or Dr. Zachary Weiss, schedule your next appointment by calling our practice at 847-676-3500.

Toss that Brush

We’ll take a wild guess and say that’s it’s probably been a while since you last replaced your manual toothbrush. We recommend replacing toothbrushes with every season, or every three months, to ensure your brush stays firm and strong to effectively remove as much plaque as possible. Frayed, bent or damaged bristles can mean gum irritation and less cleaning power—two things you shouldn’t be letting slide in your daily brushing routine.

If you’re looking to really get a fresh start, consider investing in an electric toothbrush that can make effective cleaning easier than ever. If you do decide to spend a little extra, make sure to review this list of powered toothbrushes approved by the American Dental Association.

Choose Fluoridated Toothpaste

Check your toothpaste ingredients: is fluoride listed? More and more natural toothpastes are hitting the market, many of which lack the key ingredient fluoride. This compound is found in tap water in many areas of the country, and in many traditional toothpastes because of its ability to help strengthen tooth enamel and keep tooth decay at bay. Since many patients have water filters and may not regularly drink tap water, having fluoridated toothpaste is an important way to give your enamel the boost it needs to deflect the corrosive effects of harmful oral bacteria. In small amounts, fluoride in the form of toothpaste is safe for adults and older children. Just remember to always spit it out!

Give Your Mouth a Fresh Start

The best way to spring-clean your oral health? Receive a dental cleaning from our team at The Stein Center for Advanced Dentistry. Though the Christmas, New Year, and Valentine’s Day holidays are behind us, your teeth may be holding on to tartar buildup and plaque accumulated from the holiday indulgences. Tartar, or hardened plaque, can only be removed by a dental professional – it cannot be removed from brushing or flossing at home. Regularly removing tartar greatly improves your teeth’s ability to fight off decay, and gives your mouth a clean slate.

While at your cleaning, consider giving your teeth an extra boost by opting for a fluoride treatment or dental sealant. Both are preventive treatments that can help your “spring cleaning” last even longer.

Call Your Skokie, IL Dentist

A cleaner house is satisfying, but cleaner teeth can be an investment in your future health and well-being. Don’t let spring pass you by without scheduling a spring-cleaning appointment with Dr. Stein or Dr. Weiss at our Skokie, IL practice! We look forward to seeing you soon.

Yellow Teeth? Whiten Your Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry

Yellow Teeth? Whiten Your Smile with Cosmetic DentistryDo you hide your smile while out with friends or family? Or maybe seeing photos of yourself leads you to think “are my teeth really that yellow?”. If this sounds like you, know that you aren’t alone. More and more patients are turning to The Stein Center for Advanced Dentistry for cosmetic dentistry solutions for yellowed, but otherwise healthy, teeth. Your smile is an important part of your appearance; make sure you’re happy with it by exploring our options for patients looking to whiten “yellow” or dull teeth.

Dr. Abraham Stein and Dr. Zachary Weiss offer cosmetic solutions for patients in the Skokie, IL area looking for premium dental care from experienced, highly skilled dentists. We believe smiles should be more than healthy and strong – they should be beautiful, too! Let us help you craft your beautiful smile. Call us at (847) 676-3500 to schedule your cosmetic consultation.

Why Teeth Can Appear “Yellow”

Yellow teeth may not be aesthetically pleasing, but fortunately, a yellowed appearance isn’t harmful to a tooth; it’s actually quite natural. Teeth dull or develop a more yellowed appearance as we age. This is because as the enamel surface of teeth wears with age, the layer underneath tooth enamel, called “dentin”, begins to show through. Dentin is a bony tissue that is one of the four main components of a tooth’s structure. Dentin has a natural color that is less white than outer enamel.

However, certain lifestyle behaviors and environmental factors can expedite the yellowing process. Smoking, consuming richly-colored foods and drinks such as coffee or tea, and taking certain medications can all contribute to teeth becoming stained on the surface, or developing deeper stains within the inner structure of the tooth.

Solutions for a Whiter Smile

  • Whitening: Professional teeth whitening is not the same as the strips or trays you may find at the drugstore. Our in-office and take-home treatments are approved by the American Dental Association to be safe on tooth enamel. The active ingredient in our treatments, either hydrogen or carbamide peroxide, works deeper into layers of enamel below the surface, lifting and removing stains accumulated from food or drink. The result is teeth that are up to eight shades lighter! However, rest assured that you can always control the level of whitening to maintain a natural but healthy appearance. Teeth whitening works best on extrinsic stains, or those tooth stains that are on the outer layers of the teeth.
  • Bonding: If you have irregular discoloration on one tooth or one area of a tooth, dental bonding could be the best solution for a uniform smile. Dental bonding uses the same composite material used for fillings to cover irregularities on the surface of teeth. Dr. Stein or Dr. Weiss can tint the composite to perfectly match your natural enamel, and smooth and buff the composite to mirror enamel’s glossy finish. With proper care, dental bonding should last about five years.
  • Veneers: For yellowed teeth that have deep, intrinsic staining and discoloration due to age, certain medications, or other health conditions, porcelain veneers are often the best solution for a truly transformative smile. Veneers are thin pieces of medical-grade ceramic that are securely bonded to the front surface of teeth. Veneers can correct not only discoloration and yellowed teeth, but crooked or misaligned teeth, irregularly sized teeth, and chipped or worn teeth. Veneers from The Stein Center for Advanced Dentistry are custom-fabricated to fit your smile and, once placed, can last up to 20 years. However, veneers are one of the most costly cosmetic solutions and are considered a permanent solution, due to the amount of enamel that must be removed from natural teeth during treatment.

A Stronger Smile Through Dental Implants

A Stronger Smile Through Dental Implants

Did you know that tooth enamel is the strongest biological substance? In fact, tooth enamel is even stronger than steel – though much more brittle. Our smiles are much stronger than we think! However, if you’ve recently lost a tooth due to decay or trauma, you may be wondering what the best treatment is for you to regain that strong smile you’ve become used to. Though other restorative treatments can help to fill the gap in your smile, a tooth implant remains the best way to restore missing tooth roots, strengthen and preserve bone density, and create a firmer bite for a lifetime. Below, discover more reasons why Dr. Abraham Stein and Dr. Zachary Weiss choose dental implants as often as possible for a stronger smile restoration.

If you are looking for restorative oral surgery care in Skokie, IL or the greater Chicago area, schedule a consultation at the Stein Center for Advanced Dentistry. Dr. Abraham Stein is widely regarded as an expert in his field of prosthodontics; Dr. Stein lectures nationally and is published in the International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Implants, a peer reviewed, evidence-based dental journal. Trust your smile to the tooth implant expert; call today to schedule your appointment with Dr. Abraham Stein!

Read on to discover the many benefits of dental implants.

Decay-Free Restoration

Tooth implants are usually made of titanium or a titanium alloy and thus, do not decay like enamel. With an implant, you do not have to worry about tooth decay under the surface of your gums; while your remaining teeth may suffer future enamel wear or decay, your implant will continue to offer uncompromised support within your mouth and jaw. However, it’s still crucial to practice proper oral care, as periodontal disease or bone deterioration around the implant can still negatively affect your oral health.

Decreased Bone Loss

Bone deterioration in the jaw is a common issue after tooth loss. Dental implants mimic natural teeth roots and can help the jawbone function normally, rebuilding bone density and strength as it would have with a natural root. The risk for bone tissue atrophy is reduced when implants are placed soon after tooth loss occurs.

Incredible Aesthetics

Dental implants can maintain the natural shape of your smile and face. Patients without dental implants can experience shifting smiles or even a change in their appearance due to bone loss. Dental implants maintain your facial structure and offer a seamless, undetectable connection to your visible restoration (such as a dental crown).

Lasting Durability

Dental implants have been used and studied in dentistry for over 30 years with very positive results. For many patients who practice proper oral hygiene, dental implants can last their entire life.

Versatile Support

A variety of restorations can be affixed to dental implants, including a single dental crown, as well as  multiple-teeth restorations such as implant-supported bridges, dentures, and full mouth restorations, like All-on-4® treatments. Implants offer incomparable support for the restoration that fits your smile.

Improved Comfort

Since implants anchor restorations in in a similar way to natural tooth roots, patients usually find the results of treatment more comfortable. The support of an implant allows for a firmer bite and improved chewing capabilities over dental restorations which rest on top of the gums. With implants, slipping, sliding, or shifting restorations are no longer an issue.

A New Job

Meetings, sales calls, presentations, and performance reviews require face-to-face communication and a smile to brighten the room.

Restore a beautiful smile so you can focus on your job. Let Dr. Stein and Dr. Weiss help you improve a dull, discolored, misshapen, or failing restoration with a new porcelain dental crown.

Dr. Abraham E. Stein

From start to finish, a fabulous experience (sounds like an oxymoron when talking about "dental visits", but actually true). From stepping in and encountering a superbly run front desk and incredible dental hygienist (whom I have seen for 20+ years), great dental assistants, and of course the master himself -- Dr. Stein. He has done amazing things to my 65+ year-old choppers such that they are in the top tier of my peers. Need I say more?
