Are you embarrassed about your smile because your teeth are crooked or maligned? Have you always wanted to get your teeth straightened but think it’s too late and traditional metal braces may hamper your lifestyle?

Cosmetic Dentistry

Are you looking for Teeth Whitening, Bonding, or Veneers?

Preventive Care

Routine Preventive Care, including dental cleanings, will remove plaque and calculus(tartar) accumulation on teeth and prevent gum disease.

Dental Implants

Modern dentistry offers a great way to correct the problem of missing teeth: dental implants.

Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease affects about 75% of the population. Researchers have also found that gum disease is related to a host of others problems, like low birth weight in infants, stroke, uncontrolled diabetes and heart disease. So you are better off treating gum disease, which can help reduce your risk of other life threatening diseases.

Root Canal Therapy

Historically, root canals have gotten a bad rap, but the good news is that advances in dental technology have made it much less painful and “scary,” with more than a 95% success rate.

Emergency Dental Care

Dental emergencies are impossible to prepare for and can be extremely painful. Fortunately, we have years of experience treating all types of dental emergencies at Dental Smiles of West Loop.

Oral Surgery

When a tooth is broken down from trauma or decay and cannot be restored with a filling or a cap, the tooth may need to be removed to prevent infection. Dr. Shah can help remove these teeth after administration of a local numbing solution.

Our office is devoted to general and family dentistry. As your primary dental care provider, we are responsible for the general diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and management of a wide range of dental conditions, disorders, and diseases that affect the teeth, gums, jaw, and face.

Our Clients Absolutely Adore Us

I decided to go to Dental Smiles of West Loop after a recommendation from a friend. I've had extremely bad experiences with dentists in the past and have dental anxiety because of this. Dr Shah listened to my concerns and actively checked in with me during my routine cleaning. She made sure I understood what tool she would be using and what purpose they served. All of the staff made me feel extremely comfortable and I felt like I could manage my anxiety because of their support and kindness. I would highly recommend this dental practice to everyone, especially those with dental anxiety.

Positive dental experience and great cleaning. My husband came home bragging about Dr. Shah and her team and I have to agree with him. An exceptionally pleasant first-visit experience!

Y'Shanda R5 Stars

Great experience as a new patient! As someone who has managed dental offices for a decade, I found myself in a position to search for a dentist on my own after a job change to the technology side of the dental industry. I was nervous to visit a new office, partly because I’m so familiar with how offices run and didn’t want to have a bad experience. Dr. Shah was so kind, she did my cleaning and made me feel comfortable despite some sensitivity I have and was thorough in explaining what she saw in my mouth. I’m so glad to have found a great dentist so close to my house and on the first attempt nonetheless! I definitely recommend visiting the office and can say with confidence, you’ll be well taken care of!
