Review by Karrie L.
Janet S. Stopka, DDS, PC - reviews
Thank you thank you. I love this practice. I'm so thankful for Dr. Stopka and her expertise. There are not many mercury free dentists in the south suburbs. The entire staff has been great. I find Nancy to be one of the friendliest people to work a front desk in my life. Always a pleasure to call the office. And Gail was wonderful with our 6 and 4 year olds for their first appointments. She explained everything she was going to do first and the boys had a great time in the chair. Randi was also so patient as my boys picked out a toy from the Treasure Chest (decisions, decisions, you know...).

I love Dr. Stopka's passion for her clients health and wellness. She is not your run of the mill dentist...in the best possible way. I am so happy we found you and so thankful that you are following your soul's purpose, Dr. Stopka! ♡

Crowns and Bridges

As much as possible, Dr. Stopka repairs damaged teeth with mercury-free, tooth-colored fillings. In some cases, the extent of damage is too great for this approach. In such instances, she may recommend treatment that includes an inlay, onlay, or crown. Each of these restorations is designed to repair the structure a tooth needs to function well.

A dental crown is larger than an inlay or onlay, covering the entire part of the tooth that is visible above the gums. Crowns can be fabricated from a number of materials. Dr. Stopka discusses with patients their options and the advantages and disadvantages of each. For a number of reasons, patients find metal-free options appealing. Crowns made of composite, porcelain, or zirconium are biocompatible and are very durable. Additionally, there is an obvious benefit to the natural look of the smile.

Dr. Stopka has been providing a high standard of biological dental care for several years. She has the education, background, and the commitment to biocompatibility to help patients choose the type of restorative material that best suits their needs.

Dental Bridges

The purpose of a dental bridge is to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Bridgework may be used when teeth remain on each side of an empty space and even if teeth need to be replaced at the back of the mouth. Dr. Stopka is familiar with fixed bridges, cantilever bridges and Maryland style bridges. Due to their success at long lasting results, many patients choose to replace missing teeth with a fixed bridge. This restoration is typically stabilized by teeth on each side of a gap. For the preservation of healthy natural tooth structure, we encourage patients to consider the implant-supported bridge.

Our approach to patient care is collaborative. It is not our intent to dictate to patients the type of treatment they need, but to provide information that will facilitate the optimal outcome for each individual.

Your smile is an important aspect in your sense of health and wellness. Our team offers you care that is designed solely around your needs. Call (630) 756-5844 to schedule your visit with Burr Ridge biological dentist Janet Stopka.
