Dental Services in Ravenswood, Chicago, IL

Visiting Juniper Dentistry means that you have access to skilled dental experts and a custom treatment plan. We know that every patient is unique, which is why we dedicate the time needed to craft an optimal dental care plan based on your preferences.

If it is time for a check-up, or you need to talk to Dr. Jessica Rhodes about other available services, then we encourage you to schedule an appointment. Here is an overview of available dental services:

Dental Bridge

Multiple tooth restorations can be completed using dental bridges, which are designed to fill-in or “bridge” the gap where teeth have been extracted. This restorative treatment offers a long-term solution to improve both the appearance and function of the smile. Proper alignment of the tooth bridge assists with balanced distribution when eating, helping to avoid damage to other healthy teeth.

There are several types of bridges: an implant bridge is cemented to dental implants, while a fixed dental bridge is connected to nearby teeth that are strong enough to hold the bridge. A crown is then placed on the teeth to secure the bridge in place. This dental restoration is important when teeth are missing to minimize the risk of a change in bite due to other teeth shifting in the mouth. Depending on your situation, we will assess whether a fixed implant bridge or a traditional bridge is necessary to restore your smile.

Dental Exam and Cleaning

Every patient should visit the dentist for a teeth cleaning and dental exam regularly. The recommendation is that an oral exam dental appointment should be done twice a year. A professional teeth cleaning will help to remove built up plaque and tartar on your teeth, as well as prepare you for a dental evaluation. This timing gives our dental staff the opportunity to diagnose potential issues in the early stages. Then, a minimally-invasive treatment plan can be implemented right away.

The benefit of regular dental check-ups is that you can avoid the risk of bigger dental procedures in the future. When you are consistent about ongoing care, including professional dental cleanings and in your home, then you can maintain healthy teeth and gums that last a lifetime.

Dental Crowns

Severely damaged teeth can be restored using partial or full dental crowns placed over the remaining portion of the tooth. Dental decay, trauma, and damage can impact the integrity of the tooth, leading to complications in the future. Tooth crown placement can be used to avoid extraction in the future.

The tooth crown is custom-designed to match the color and shape of your natural teeth. This porcelain cover is placed over the damaged tooth to restore the appearance and strength of the tooth. A dental crown is often needed after other dental work, such as a root canal or the removal of a large area of decay.

Dental Emergency

A severe toothache or dental trauma requires immediate dental treatment if you want to minimize complications in the future. When an emergency occurs that damages your teeth or gums, then it is essential that you contact an emergency dentist as soon as possible for treatment. Emergency dental care can be used to save the tooth and improve the long-term outcome after the emergency.

When are dental emergency services required? Call our office if you have a chipped tooth, broken tooth, knocked out tooth, tooth pain, or suspect an infection. A toothache is an important reason to call a dentist for emergency services because the debilitating pain could be signs of an infection that won’t resolve without emergency dental services. If you have a tooth emergency, then it is essential that you contact our office as soon as possible.

Tooth Filling

Dental fillings offer the benefit of restoring a portion of a tooth that is cracked, damaged, or decayed. Not only is a cavity filling necessary for supporting the structure of the tooth, but it is also important to improve the appearance of your smile.

Our team uses the latest technology and treatments to ensure your comfort during dental fillings. The damaged area of the tooth is removed with a drill or laser. Then composite materials are bonded in place. A cavity filling treatment is a combination of dentistry and artistry to create a tooth that is natural and functional.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening offers a fast, effective way to brighten your smile. Professional whitening treatments are preferred over DIY kits for protecting the enamel on your teeth and minimizing damage from the whitening ingredients.

One of the benefits of in-office teeth whitening is that your appearance can be improved in just one office visit. This service is recommended if you have discoloration and stains from food, drinks, medication use, and more. After the teeth whitening procedure, it is important to maintain regular flossing and brushing habits to reduce discoloration in the future.

Tooth Extractions

We strive to maintain your natural teeth whenever possible, but there are circumstances where it makes sense to extract teeth that are damaged or decayed. If the damage is beyond the point of repair, then extraction might be required to avoid complications. Leaving the tooth in place could lead to an infection that spreads to the gums, bone, and surrounding teeth.

Sometimes tooth removal is necessary for orthodontic care because of overcrowding in the mouth. Our dental team works hand-in-hand with your other oral care providers to provide optimal services. We provide a comfortable environment and top-notch care to help you feel relaxed during the tooth removal service.

Veneers

Are you ready to invest in a smile that you are proud to share with others? Common cosmetic concerns can be corrected quickly and easily using dental veneers. This “smile on-demand” treatment uses thin shells that are bonded to the surface of your teeth, creating a new visible appearance for your smile.

Teeth veneers can be used to improve a range of aesthetic concerns. This cosmetic treatment is often used to improve the length, shape, size, and color of the teeth. Dental veneers might be recommended if your teeth are irregularly shaped, broken, worn down, discolored, or misaligned.

What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

I wanted to write you to let you know the incredible experience I had going to see Dr. Rhodes. In the past, visiting the dentist has been an inconvenient chore that was easy to put off and unenjoyable to carry out.

Dr. Rhodes’ bedside manner is wonderful. She is cheerful, comforting, and you can tell that she really enjoys what she does. 

I am confident that if you refer someone to Dr. Rhodes, especially someone who has not enjoyed going to the dentist in the past, you will get a huge thank you.

SJ

I would highly recommend using Dr. Jessica Rhodes as your dentist. I was thoroughly impressed with her examination the first time I saw her. She took the time to not only review my teeth but other areas, like my neck, to ensure that there were not underlying health problems. She asked very specific questions to truly understand my dental health.

You can tell from the onset that Dr. Rhodes is passionate about her field. She provides comprehensive exams because she truly cares about her clients and their overall health. In getting to know her, when she says she going to do something, she’s going to make it happen. Opening her own dental clinic is an indication of her dedication and persistence to her work.

Dawn

I’m so glad I found Dr. Rhodes! She’s been a great balance of professional yet friendly. I appreciate that she clearly explains everything so that I can make smart choices about what to fix, what can wait, and what I don’t need to worry about. This may sound odd, but I’ll say it anyway: Dr. Rhodes is the first dentist who has made me feel good about my teeth.
