Dr. Carl Medgaus boasts more than 30 years of dental diligence using state-of-the-art technology and advanced dental techniques to care for teeth alongside his talented team. A thorough exam and x-rays analyze mashers to help identify dental flaws before a systematic scrub washes away grill grime and leaves teeth squeaky clean. After exams, a specialist takes upper and lower impressions to create a personalized take-home teeth-whitening kit. Clients fill the kit's trays with an enamel-bleaching substance, then wear the splint for 30–60 minutes once or twice a day while relaxing or catching up on household chores. Available only from dentists' offices, this at-home ritual can conjure up pearlescent teeth up to seven shades whiter. 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.
The body is a complex system—with slight imbalances in one area often setting off discomfort in another. Dr. Anthony DiCesaro at Whitehall Health Centre works to make cures simpler and address a wide range of maladies. He explains to potential patients how a spinal realignment can reduce pain or how wrist supports can prevent future injury for competitive rock-paper-scissors players. To this list of traditional treatment methods, Dr. DiCesaro adds cold-laser therapy. The laser’s gentle glow doesn’t heat tissue, yet it inspires cellular activity that can expedite the healing process, prevent the formation of scar tissue, and boost the collagen production. Different methods are also used inside Whitehall Health Centre’s cosmetic division, where technicians use the SlenderRay Lipo treatment to flatten unwanted curves and a blue LED light to aid in teeth-whitening treatments.
FDA-registered Million Dollar Smile restores whiteness to shop-worn smiles during tandem treatments with a dental-grade carbamide-peroxide formula and select wavelengths of LED lights. Using specially designed mouth trays, treatments neutralize discoloration on both the upper and lower teeth. The peroxide solution works its whitening magic free of gluten, fluoride, or alcohol, and the shortened exposure to LED lights lightens teeth without softening enamel or disrupting molars’ circadian rhythms.
After in-office whitening sessions, customers can augment their treatments at home with a pen loaded with fast-acting hydrogen peroxide. Customers crack open their take-home pen to get juices flowing before painting a thin layer onto the front of teeth after a thorough brushing. The pen’s potassium-nitrate solution acts as a sensitivity blocker, making it effective on weak enamel and sunburned incisors. In addition to touchup pens, Million Dollar Smile also offers two different at-home versions of its complete whitening system.
Dr. Ted Steliotes and his friendly staff assuage dental anxiety with general and cosmetic dentistry performed in a luxurious spa. Lit by brilliant chandeliers, a soothing fountain quietly laps as patients sink into plush, marshmallow-lined chairs in Steliotes Dental Spa's relaxing waiting room. During the comprehensive dental exam, tooth technicians investigate oral interiors, gently poking with sanitized instruments to detect dental distress and to tickle laughing devices. A full series of intraoral x-rays helps pinpoint problems lurking beneath the smile's surface, uncovering cavities and screening for signs of oral cancer. A hand massage pampers tired paws during the thorough cleaning, as Dr. Steliotes and his team floss between teeth and scrub and rinse enamel to purge popcorn kernels, plaque, tartar, and residual orange peels from childhood soccer-game halftimes. Steliotes Dental Spa's mouth menders also consult patients on the spa's Botox and Invisalign treatments for no additional charge and welcome each visitor to soak up the indulgent ambience while sipping a beverage from the coffee and juice bar.
