General Dentistry Vernon Hills, IL

Smile More Today is a Vernon Hills dental practice in which the entire dental team is committed to the common goal of smile preservation and maintenance. We treat patients of all ages with gentle, compassionate care that promotes optimal oral health and beautiful smiles.

  • Dr. Kumar and our staff are extensively trained in various dental treatments, and we provide individualized care to each patient. Included in our menu of services are:
  • Deep cleanings and teeth polishing, designed to remove stains, plaque and tartar from hard to reach tooth surfaces.
  • Ultrasonic cleanings using ultrasonic vibration and water quickly and effectively clean teeth.
  • Beautiful tooth repair with composite resin dental fillings, this type of filling preserves a greater amount of natural tooth structure, and actually adds strength to the tooth. These tooth colored fillings are aesthetically pleasing and long lasting.
  • Porcelain inlays and onlays are used to repair teeth with large cavities in a more conservative manner than a dental crown. These porcelain restorations are durable and beautiful, lasting many years.
  • Porcelain crowns and bridges repair damaged teeth and replace missing teeth with perfectly natural results that can last a decade or more.
  • Treatment for gingivitis and periodontal disease is important for oral health. Dr. Kumar uses advanced technology and specific technique to detect gum disease. Preventive and restorative treatments include ultrasonic cleanings and laser gum therapy.
  • Laser gum therapy is designed to destroy disease-causing bacteria and eliminate infection in gum tissue when inserted into periodontal pockets. Laser treatment for gum disease is significantly more comfortable than traditional treatment, as fibers measure only about three hairs in size.
  • Root canal therapy, called endodontics, is the gentle and effective treatment for infection in the root canal.
  • Extractions can be performed for teeth that are damaged beyond repair, as well as for third molars, or wisdom teeth. We make sure the extraction process is comfortable for each patient, before, during, and after treatment.
  • Bruxism, or tooth clenching and grinding, can cause damage to teeth, create dysfunction in the joints of the jaw, and lead to headaches. We can decrease the effect of clenching or grinding through the fabrication of a custom protective dental guard.
  • Dry mouth is a problem experienced by many people. To improve comfort and oral health, we develop comprehensive treatment plans specifically to treat this condition.
  • Tension headaches and migraines may be the result of malocclusion, TMJ disorder, or bruxism. Discovering the underlying cause of headaches, your dentist can provide treatment for relief.
  • Urgent care or emergency dentistry is sometimes needed. We provide prompt treatment when necessary to address problems like lost or broken teeth and persistent toothaches.

DIODE LASER TECHNOLOGY

Smile More Today includes the advanced technology that will help us best serve our patients. The diode dental laser is a tool that aids a variety of different procedures. For many years, laser therapy has been used in the medical field. In dentistry, however, practitioners are still catching on. Dr. Kumar has been trained and has extensive experience providing laser therapy for the prevention and treatment of dental conditions.
Diode laser technology allows us to offer a number of soft tissue procedures, including:

  • Gingival incision and excision
  • Gingivoplasty and gingivectomy
  • Gingival troughing for crown impressions
  • Exposure of unerupted teeth
  • Incisional and excisional biopsy
  • Hemostasis and coagulation
  • Implant recovery
  • Frenectomy and frenotomy
  • Fribromal removal
  • Soft tissue crown lengthening
  • Canker sores, and aphthous and herpetic ulcers in the oral mucosa
  • Reduction of gingival hypertrophy
  • Oral papillectomy
  • Operculectomy
  • Pulpotomy in conjunction with root canal therapy
  • Leukoplakia
  • Incision and draining of abscess
  • Vestibuloplasty

The diode laser has powerful anti-bacterial capabilities that make it an ideal inclusion within a number of dental treatments. Studies on this technology show it to be highly effective in fighting gum-disease causing pathogens. What our patients love is that the inclusion of laser therapy into dental procedures improves comfort both during and after treatment.

We are proud to offer the state-of-the-art services that promote comfort and efficiency in dental care. Contact Smile More Today in Vernon Hills to benefit from our level of services.

We are serving our patients throughout the Vernon Hills, Libertyville, Mundelein, Buffalo Grove, Lincolnshire, Lake Forest, and Chicago locations.
