At Spa Dentistry, rejuvenating paraffin dips can take place at the same time as fluoride rinses. This is because Drs. Susan T. Lee and Gauri Bhagwat value their patients’ comfort almost as much as their oral health, so they incorporate spa treatments into their checkups and examinations whenever possible. The wafting scents of fresh fruit and aromatherapy candles help to put visitors at ease, along with in-room TVs, warmed mittens, and pillows for the legs, neck, and back.
While clients relax, doctors and technicians keep smiles neat and bright by performing a number of preventive, restorative, and cosmetic procedures. They rely on such modern medical technology as computerized patient charts and low-radiation digital x-ray systems, which manage to generate clearer images than the Pictionary world champion. Crowns and bridges can conceal discoloration behind natural-looking porcelain, and fillings and root canals help to prevent the spread of decay.:
At AZ Dental, a team of six dentists accomplish cosmetic, general, and surgical procedures with an emphasis on patient health and comfort. To keep their guests comfortable, the dental team seats them in massage chairs for procedures such as gentle root canals. They also let patients watch movies on demand to help take their minds off a filling or an elaborate bone-grafting treatment, which increases height and width of the jawbone to fill in empty spaces or correct abnormalities. Backed by a compassionate and courteous staff, the dentists work to completely subtract stress from the entire visit, whether it's for a tooth whitening or a routine checkup. The office features wood accents and hallway sconces, just like the tree forts of most robber barons.
At Moradi Signature Smiles, Dr. Ramin Moradi and his staff tackle virtually every facet of dentistry, minimizing the need for outside referrals. He and the team bring together skills in cosmetic and restorative dentistry to give patients the teeth they dream about. Invisalign and ClearCorrect orthodontia replace conspicuous wires to bestow pearlies with perfect straightness, and dental implants replace roots with titanium rods and porcelain crowns that function as natural teeth but are impervious to cavities and decay. In addition, sedation dentistry helps uneasy patients come through procedures relaxed and comfortable, unlike a parrot that only knows how to talk about rising college tuition.
Gleaming Smiles' singular mission is to boost their clients' confidence and self-esteem by imbuing them with eminently flashable smiles. Their gel- and LED-based system banishes each tooth's internal and external stains, boosting overall whiteness by up to 10 shades per session. Their gel-activating light, meanwhile, has the added benefit of neutralizing mouth-borne bacteria that cause gingivitis, bad breath, and Freudian slips for up to six months.
With an emphasis on restorative and cosmetic care, Dr. Kostantinos Pries and company toil to transform unfit mouths into healthy snack compactors. During the standard check-up, which lasts for 90 minutes, Dr. Pries will appraise the state of teeth and gums before beginning the meticulous cleaning, which gives the heave-ho to any tartar and plaque buildup to clear the way for future generations of Flintstones chewables, coffee grounds, and concealed lima beans. After teeth are scanned with digital x-rays that emit as much as 90% less radiation than conventional x-ray machines, patients will depart with custom-fit whitening trays to be worn a few hours a day until the desired level of enlightenment is achieved.
After comprehensively examining your mouth and its contents (a $95 value)—including checking teeth for cavities and cracks, inspecting gums for signs of periodontal disease, and testing your tongue on its poetry memorization—Dr. Hamada's team will present your choice of whitening options. During the professional in-office whitening ($500), patients lounge about for roughly an hour as the in-office bleaching gel relentlessly beats stains from the teeth. To whiten at home, opt for a custom-fitted set of take-home whitening trays. After fitting you for trays, Dr. Hamada's office will custom-form the whitening artifacts using the state-of-the-art power of Grayskull. When the trays are ready (between two days and a week), return to the office for instructions on how to properly use the two weeks' worth of treatments.
