About Practice

Established in 2012, Global Facial Aesthetics is a premier cosmetic dentistry practice serving people of all ages in River Forest, Illinois. At their welcoming high-tech dental facility, highly experienced dentists Gary Alder, DDS, FAGD, DAAPM, and Irene Skirius, DDS, offer a wide range of treatments, including clear aligners, dental implants, gum rejuvenation, veneers, teeth whitening, and much more. 

Global Facial Aesthetics uses highly advanced technology, such as PreXion cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) and digital X-rays to minimize radiation exposure during imaging. 

Whenever possible, the skillful surgeons perform minimally invasive laser-assisted surgery rather than traditional dental surgery, allowing for more comfortable procedures and faster recoveries. The specialists perform digitally guided root canal treatments and Bio Dent computer-guided dental implant procedures for ultimate precision and optimal outcomes.

The dental providers use computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM), 3-D printing, and other advanced tools to fabricate CEREC all-porcelain crowns, dental bridges, and more at the in-house laboratory. 

Global Facial Aesthetics welcomes new and established patients to call the River Forest office or click the online scheduling link.

You Don't Have to Live With Receding Gums

As gum disease progresses, bacteria and plaque damage the gums and, in some cases, cause them to recede. Left untreated, it can lead to sensitivity and even tooth loss. Fortunately, receding gums can be treated.

The Dangers of Sleep Apnea
