As anyone who’s ever been saddled with a midnight toothache surely knows, dental emergencies don’t abide by a fixed schedule. That’s because, like all medical emergencies, tooth-related problems are impossible to predict in every single instance. Even people who take great care of their teeth and visit their dentists on a regular basis can still suffer the occasional accident or spontaneous infection that requires immediate care.
Since we at Westgate Dental Care believe strongly in an anxiety-free style of dentistry, we’ve decided to implement emergency services for all patients in the Arlington Heights Illinois area. This means that, in case of an emergency, you can pay us a visit even if you haven’t previously booked an appointment with us. We have protocols in place to welcome customers on the same day in emergency situations, and will gladly do everything in our power to see you as quickly as possible. Here are just some of the advantages of choosing Westgate Dental Care in times of need:

There’s no substitute for having good oral hygiene. Brushing and flossing regularly are the cornerstones of any decent oral care regimen, but even they might not always be enough to prevent cavities from occurring. That’s because our teeth have irregular shapes, with plenty of nooks and crannies where harmful bacteria can lay low until it eats into our enamel. A good way to help your teeth remain healthy no matter what is by opting for dental sealants. Dental Sealants are thin coatings that adhere to the surface of the teeth, preventing cavities from forming in their crevices. (more…)

Whether it’s in order to achieve a perfect a smile or because we want to have healthy teeth that are free of overbites and underbites, having straight teeth is something we all aspire to have. Back in the day, this meant resorting to rather unseemly braces that were effective but nevertheless caught the eye in a none-too-pleasing fashion.
Fortunately, in this day and age, a technology called Invisalign® exists that ensures optimum tooth correction without drawing any attention to itself. If you’re interested in having straight teeth but aren’t sure how to go about doing so, let’s examine the four main reasons why Invisalign® aligners might be the perfect choice for you: (more…)

If one were to tally all the aspirations people have with regards to their looks, owning a great smile would probably figure at or near the top of most people’s lists. That’s because a great smile is a tremendous asset in life and a big confidence booster to boot. Needless to say, having pearly white teeth plays a significant role in feeling your best.
Unfortunately, for many people, this goal is fairly hard to achieve, given the fact that common foods and drinks tend to have an adverse effect on the color of our teeth. Even something as banal as coffee can easily lead to stained teeth in no time, making it a priority to address these concerns through more proactive means.
At Westgate Dental Care, we believe that people should always have a choice when it comes to undergoing dental treatments. That’s why we offer both in-office whitening sessions and at-home kits to all our patients.

48% of adults think a smile is the most memorable feature when they first meet someone.

For purposes ranging from tooth restoration to orthodontics, people visit dentists every day in order to both look better and be healthier. The former role is fulfilled by what’s known as “cosmetic dentistry,” or the art of helping you achieve the perfect smile, a much-desired goal that these days is quite easy to accomplish. Depending on your particular needs and requirements, we here at Westgate Dental Care can offer you one or more of the following options: (more…)

As we draw closer to the opening of our new location, we think it’s the perfect time to share our Westgate Dental Care story.
Dr. Kics first opened the doors of Westgate Dental Care in September 2002. He was practicing as an associate dentist in Janesville, Wisconsin and wanted to move back to the Chicago area with his wife Teja, toddler Sophia and newborn Ava to be near his roots (he grew up in Hillside). His wife previously taught in D25 at Olive-Mary Stitt school and they always liked the Arlington Heights community, so when a small dental practice was for sale, they jumped at the opportunity.

Heart and Stethoscope for Heart Month
