Patients choose between Zoom! or Lumibrite whitening, then sit back as the dentist slathers teeth with special whitening gel. While Zoom! pairs its gel with a specialized light to scare away discolorations and leave food choppers bright, Lumibrite's gel works by itself, a loner in the art of whitewashing ivories. After the procedure, teeth will walk out of the office as white as a glass of fresh-squeezed milk. A set of whitening trays go home with Groupon holders, further aiding in the battle against stained incisor insurgency.
Helmed by a duo of dutiful dental excavators, Clairmont Cosmetic & Family Dentistry refurbishes mouth planks with cosmetic Zoom! teeth-whitening treatments that lighten chompers 6–10 shades. A skilled technician begins each in-office procedure by isolating lips and gums to solitary confinement before massaging smile accessories with a whitening gel that is activated under the brightening beans of the Zoom! light, penetrating the dingy dentile surface to break down stains over four separate 15-minute durations. Once teeth morph into a purer likeness of their former selves, they'll bask in a fluoride bath before a skilled technician takes mouth impressions to mold vinyl take-home trays designed to help maintain moonbeam-esque smiles. Clients then wear these customized trays stuffed with carbamide-peroxide gel overnight for up to four weeks to continuously rid enamel surfaces of discoloration spawned from drinking coffee or squid ink. Higher gel strengths have a greater likelihood of increasing tooth sensitivity, so be sure to consult the staff prior to treatment.
For more than 25 years, Dr. Weiss and his talented staff have given the Birmingham community something to smile about. The practice offers a wide variety of cosmetic, restorative, and family dental services to keep chompers healthy and happy, but all teeth transformations should start with a thorough check-up and cleaning. Pile your pearly whites in a hobo's bindle and ramble down the road to radiance, starting with an exam and x-rays. During your appointment at Weiss Dental, a team of smile experts will peer into your maw, checking for signs of tooth decay, gum troubles, and more. High-tech digital x-rays and an intraoral camera help expose cleverly disguised dental details, such as fractures posing as toothaches and car keys posing as misplaced. Before you drive away, sit back and relax as a professional scrubs and shines your smirk.
Drs. James Sampson and Byron Ketcham and their dedicated team help maintain teeth and educate patients on oral health at Sampson Family Dentistry, which has been serving Birmingham families for more than 30 years. During the comprehensive exam and oral-cancer screening, the friendly staff takes a detailed look at teeth and gum tissue to identify any abnormalities, potential trouble spots, or secret love notes stashed between molars. Up to four x-rays suss out hidden cavities and measure bone levels, and an expert cleaning eradicates plaque and banishes tartar above and below the gum line. After the appointment, which lasts 45 minutes to an hour, patients leave with brighter smiles without the aid of delicate light-bulb caps.
After graduating UAB Dental School, Dr. Stuart Curry joined the U.S. Air Force, where he honed his oral expertise at Tampa's MacDill Air Force Base. After three years, however, he yearned to apply his skills at his own practice on familiar ground. So he traveled back to his hometown of Birmingham and opened Stuart Curry Dentistry, where he now tends to teeth with general and cosmetic treatments—including tooth-colored fillings, crowns, whitening, and Invisalign orthodontics.
To help patients have positive associations with the dentist office, Dr. Curry has tried to emulate the calming ambiance of a spa with the center's decor and amenities. Dr. Curry also allays qualms with a host of advanced technological tools: he utilizes digital x-rays, which expose patients to less radiation than traditional x-rays, and he ups the efficiency of procedures with the help of an in-house lab.
