Cavities, crooked incisors, stained enamel—none of these phase the oral professionals at Blount Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, which has tended teeth for three decades. Now helmed by Dr. K. Darrel Clabough, who brings his own 15 years of experience to the practice, the center has launched itself into the 21st century with technology such as computerized Cerec ceramic restorations. The center uses these restorations to create veneers that cover misshapen incisors and implants that fill in for missing teeth in the mouth of a model on a liquids-only diet.
The staff at SmileLabs of Oak Ridge are pros at teeth whitening. Team members assist clients in painting their teeth with a peroxide-based gel; the gel keeps teeth hydrated to reduce post-treatment sensitivity. Then, for 15–20 minutes, the Infinity Pro SL whitening accelerator's LED lamps kick the gel into action. The treatment can turn teeth two to eight shades whiter, making it more effective than at-home treatments and longer-lasting than painting teeth with whiteout.
Although Dr. Ellis and the staff at Ellis Dental work with plenty of high-tech equipment, it's not their tools that set them apart. Instead, it's their attitude, which achieves just the right mix of neighborly and professional. They deliver services from general cleanings to cosmetic dentistry with the same friendly demeanor, drawing on their expertise in fillings, x-rays, dentures, and veneers. They also treat TMJ, and even fit patients for sports mouthguards so that no one loses a tooth trying to bite a hockey puck in half. As a bonus, the treatment rooms are just as welcoming as the personnel, with plush leather chairs and big windows.
The reason clinicians at Advanced Teeth Whitening USA know their product works to brighten smiles is because the brand?created their formula in house. The proprietary peroxide gel formula helps brilliantly remove stains if used as directed over the course of 10 days. The team recommends applying it at night and leaving it on as one sleeps, brushing away any residue each morning. The extended exposure time improves results, though if a patient finds the sensation unpleasant, they can still see results by applying it for 15 minutes at a time.
Dr. Sonia Kherani and her amiable team at Hardin Valley Family Dentistry boost teeth to the peak of pearliness in a friendly, comforting setting. Clients can recline in comfy chairs while their ivories are thoroughly sanitized, zapped with fluoride, and scrubbed with a fine tooth-comb. After de-blemishing bicuspids and dislodging clandestine Skittles, oral technicians inspect every micrometer of the mouthscape for signs of disease, creeping cavities, or loose molars plotting secession. Four bitewing x-rays ensures that every enameloid is observing proper posture and not encroaching on its neighbor’s personal space.
