PATIENT REVIEWS

For more than 30 years we’ve been creating beautiful, natural smiles to Evanston and the North Shore. Come visit our lovely office in a delightful neighborhood setting.

Mark

Mark was unhappy with a large silver-colored filling that was 10 years old. The amalgam material that had been used for the filling was more than just unsightly: it was about 50% mercury, one of the most toxic substances known. For health and aesthetic reasons, Mark wanted Dr. Marinic to remove the filling and replace it with something biocompatible.

We carefully used a standard, accredited protocol that isolated the tooth and prevented any of the toxic material or gas from the filling to escape back into Mark’s mouth. The procedure was very fast, and Mark said that he didn’t feel anything.

After the thorough removal, Dr. Marinic designed a new inlay for the tooth on his computer, and Mark watched as he made the inlay on our CEREC milling machine. Dr. Marinic placed the inlay, adjusted the bite. Now instead of a large silver-colored tooth, Mark’s tooth looks just like the rest of his teeth.

Evelyn

Evelyn has a beautiful smile, and Dr. Marinic has been very happy to help her keep it healthy and beautiful over the last twenty–six years.

When she first came to see Dr. Marinic, she had crowns on her top front teeth that she was not happy with, and crooked bottom teeth. Dr. Marinic replaced her top crowns with crowns that were the correctly-matched size and color, and used more crowns to help her straighten her bottom teeth.

When Evelyn cracked an incisor near the gumline, a crown was not an option. Dr. Marinic considered an implant to replace the tooth, but first checked Evelyn’s medications.When her medications indicated that she was not a qualified candidate for implant surgery, Dr. Marinic instead gave Evelyn a permanent bridge. She was very happy with this restoration, saying, “Dr. Marinic is very conscious about both aesthetics and function. He is a perfectionist.”
