Frequently Asked Dentistry Questions

Our patients ask our team important questions every single day, so we thought it would be helpful to answer some of them right on our website so people can have all the information they need to take great care of their teeth. Read on below to find answers to some of our most frequently asked questions. If there is anything else you’d like to know, you can always give us a call!

How often should I go to the dentist?

This answer can differ from person to person based on their particular needs, but for the average healthy patient, we recommend attending at least 1 checkup and cleaning appointment every 6 months. These routine services help us catch and treat minor problems early so they can’t develop into serious headaches down the line.

Can I bring my child to Angel Smile Dental Care?

Yes! Our team is more than happy to take care of every single smile in Mt. Prospect, whether they are young or just young at heart. We can provide services for children of all ages, and our warm and friendly team will ensure that your little (or not so little) one always has a comfortable and relaxing time at the dentist.

How can I get rid of the gap between my front teeth?

We have two treatments that are guaranteed to take care of this flaw. Porcelain veneers can be used to fix pretty much any aesthetic imperfection you can imagine, including annoying gaps, and direct bonding can help make minor blemishes disappear in just an hour. Give us a call today to figure out which one would be right for you!

What is the best way to whiten my teeth?

While you’ll find a lot of whitening treatments at the store, they tend to be severely underpowered and unable to break up deeply set in dental stains. With our professional-strength teeth whitening, however, we can easily make your enamel 6-8 shades brighter in a single appointment. We use products with much higher concentrations than anything you can buy on your own, which means we can deliver the dramatic results you really want.

Do you accept emergency patients?

Yes! If you or a loved one is dealing with a painful toothache or has suffered a dental injury, go ahead and give Angel Smile Dental Care a call. Our team will help you over the phone, and we can even schedule a same-day appointment so our dentists can take care of your problem right away. Basically, if you ever have an urgent problem with your teeth, you can always count on us!

I think I might be grinding my teeth while I sleep. What should I do?

The best thing to do is schedule an appointment with us so we can examine your teeth and determine whether or not you are actually grinding. If you are, we can provide you with a small oral appliance called a nightguard. You’ll just wear it to bed, and it will prevent your teeth from coming together while you sleep, keeping them safe.
