No matter which dental professional you visit, your chompers will receive a meticulous cleaning that gives the heave-ho to any tartar and plaque buildup, clearing the way for future generations of meal remnants. During the exam, pearly whites will be checked for signs of trouble such as broken fillings, cavities, and hibernating elves. X-rays reveal any problems the naked eye can’t behold or that hid during the exam because they preferred not to behold a naked eye. The whole process will leave you with the shining grin of an open-mouthed walk through an automated car wash, but with less exposure on the local news.
At Mission Dental, dentists Vincent Spero and Farrah Koutchek work to improve the health and appearance of teeth and gums. They peek inside teeth using low-radiation digital x-rays before performing services that range from routine cleanings to root canals. Patients also can opt for cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening or Invisalign braces, and can request sedation dentistry to ensure a comfortable experience.
Dr. Niloufar Molayem, the resident dentist at Pasadena Smile Center, knows her patients are more than just a set of teeth. That?s why she practices holistic dentistry to ensure the materials she uses are nontoxic, and provides optional sedation services to ease anxieties. Once clients are comfortable, Dr. Molayem can perform general or cosmetic procedures ranging from regular cleanings to more intensive orthodontics or surgeries. Many of her treatments rely on advanced technology to further increase efficiency, including digital x-rays and intraoral cameras to diagnose concerns and low-level lasers to address gum disease or rampant mouth-dimness. Should more serious issues arise, Dr. Molayem can partner with the clinic?s periodontist, Dr. Eric Cho, to nip them in the bud.
Florman Orthodontics’ husband-wife orthodontist team have straightened more than 1,300 chomper sets via Invisalign and other aligner methods, earning them an Elite Preferred ranking from Invisalign in recognition of their exceptional depth of experience. The Invisalign process straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia, eschewing cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment.

Before each Zoom! whitening treatment, an enamel expert conducts a half-hour preparation and examination to ensure gums are healthy and familiar with basic geometry theorems. Patient patients can indulge digits in a complimentary paraffin hand wax while a gentle barrier isolates gums from the potent Zoom! whitening gel. Bicuspids then go from blemished to beaming as a non-invasive Zoom! light activates the illuminating serum, working to dissolve discoloration and leave mouth pearls up to eight shades pearlier over the course of three or four 15-minute intervals. Following the in-office procedure, patients can maintain dental dazzle with a specially molded tray and take-home gel that may be picked up at a later visit, allowing them to touch up once-tarnished tusks in the comfort of their own home or makeshift Batcave.
