Dr. Widen's Smile Update
Let Us Widen Your Smile!


Refer A Friend

       Referrals are the life-blood of our practice.  I want to personally thank all of our guests who have referred their friends and family. It is the highest compliment that I could receive. I appreciate your confidence and trust. For those who are happy with the treatment they have received and have not referred anybody, please refer your friends, co-workers and family members! They will enjoy the same dental treatment that you are accustomed to in a warm, gentle, caring and friendly office. Our hi-tech diagnosis and treatment will provide them with beautiful long lasting restorations that are something to smile about.     Some things are too good to keep to yourself, so refer a friend today!


Hello Spring, We Are Waiting!!!!!

    Hopefully mother nature got the email informing her that spring has arrived and the sun will start shining.

    Spring is upon us and with it a new season for you to feel and look your best!

It is also time to change your toothbrush.  Your toothbrush should be changed every 3 months to keep the brush working effectively. Feel free to stop by and pick up a new soft toothbrush.

Do you have any sensitive teeth or bleeding gums?  These are signs you should not be ignoring.

Schedule an appointment today!

    Most importantly, prompt treatment can avoid more extensive and more expensive dental procedures. What is simple now, can turn into a more severe problem later. We would hate for you to have a problem arise at an inconvenient time.

First Impressions

    Your dazzling smile can be one of your best assets. The first thing people see when you walk into a room is your smile. Don't you want to make your best first impression? Treatments are fast and more affordable then ever before. Porcelain veneers can transform your dull, worn and fractured teeth making you look years younger. A beautiful and uninhibited smile increases confidence and self esteem! This is an investment that you can see every time you look in the mirror. Your smile will look so natural that your friends will wonder what has changed! Click on the link below to see what we did for our featured case.

  Spring has arrived

    The Blackhawks are doing great and hope to see them as World Champions this year. The Bulls should make the playoffs.  D. Rose may be back at any time, and not too soon! 

   Maybe Next Year is the frequent mantra used to help the fans of Chicago sports teams. Unfortunately, I still have many guests that have been putting off needed work, citing we will do it next year.

Maybe Next Year will be This Year!

      I want to give our guests and friends a heartfelt thank you for your loyalty and friendship. 

    I still  want to help each and every one of our guests get the needed care during these tough times.  We will work with you to allow you to afford the treatment without hardships.  Contact Nichole to see what we can do for you.
    I wish everyone a Happy Easter and Happy Passover.  

We look forward to seeing you at the office in the near future.

Loose Dentures?
Missing Teeth?

   Dental implants can improve the way you look and feel about yourself.

   Dental implants are used to replace a single tooth, many teeth on one side, or used to support an entire fixed or removable bridge replacing all the upper or lower teeth.

   The most common dental implant used today is the osseintegrated dental implant. This dental implant is placed into your lower or upper jaw. Depending on the number of teeth being replaced, one or more dental implants are placed in the bone. If necessary a substrucure is made and then a crown, bridge or denture is securely fastened to the substructure or implant.

    Dental Implants are useful for guests that have tried but can't wear conventional dentures. Guests that have lost a tooth, have two teeth with no or small fillings adjacent to the hole and those who don't want to cut the teeth down to make a bridge, would also make good candidates. In either case you have to commit to good oral hygiene. So make sure to keep the implanted areas healthy, by brushing and flossing daily. Dental implants are placed in our office and have a healing phase of 6 weeks to 3 months.

    Call our Chicago office at 312-266-0044 to see if you are a candidate.

Dating Tip!


    It sounds so obvious but smiling when on a date can make a huge difference to how the date progresses. 

   Experts say that smiling actually relaxes the muscles in your face and not to mention it looks good too!Smiling really can change your mood, if you leave the house smiling you'll feel optimistic about your date.

   Not only will it change how you feel but when your date sees your smile, it will automatically make them want to do the same. It will make you both feel more confident in the date and will get you off on the right foot.

   It's important to remember to smile in a way you feel comfortable. If you don't like your teeth then go for the closed lip smile or visit Dr. Widen to Widen your smile.

    If you're comfortable with having your teeth on show then flash them a little when you smile at your date, remember, no Cheshire Cat!

   The more naturally you smile, the nicer it looks and if you're comfortable then it will open you up to your date and show them that you're approachable and easy to talk to.

   Give your smiling a trial run in the mirror before the date and even ask friends and family for opinions to get a second opinion.

   The main point to remember is to have a light smile on your face at all times, looking miserable will do neither of you any good!

    If you are unhappy with your smile please call us at 312-266-0044  to discuss your options.
