As one of the premier teeth whitening lounges in the region, DaVinci of South Texas tasks itself with keeping teeth gleaming white with its proprietary teeth-whitening system in a serene atmosphere. The peroxide gel works its magic over the course of two 20-minute sessions, each extracting a progressively deeper set of stains and remnants from layer cakes. Aside from its whitening properties, the gel boasts a mineral-rich formula that fortifies dental enamel.
The network of dental professionals at Today’s Dental Today check families’ chomper health using progressive digital dental technology such as digital x-rays, intraoral cameras, and computers in every room. During the 90- to 120-minute exam, the dentist thoroughly peruses mouthscapes in search of tooth decay, gum disease, and oral cancer before taking intraoral photographs and a set of digital x-rays. Then, a skilled hygienist bathes teeth in a flurry of toothpaste and fluoride, sloughs off tartar between teeth with floss, and scrapes tongues free of schoolyard-inspired swear words.
Specializing in family-friendly services, the dental duo of Dr. Justin J. Gonzales and Dr. F. Bradley Dutton and a tenacious staff combat incursions of plaque, tartar, and tooth decay from their pearly Pentagon at San Pedro Dental Associates. The routine procedure begins with a thorough visual inspection of each patient's dentition (an $82 value), followed by a set of x-rays to find underlying issues and call out lies about lead-chewing habits (a $107 value). Each tooth is then freed from clingy plaque deposits with a full cleaning, polishing, and fluoride soak (a $119 combined value). Patients are given a brush-on whitening pen that makes undoing unwanted discoloration at home as simple as writing an unofficial sequel to Of Mice and Men on a set of dentures (a $49 value).
Drs. Jose Brigman and Marco Ruiz of Emerald Crossing Family Dentistry would rather prevent than repair dental problems. That's why they conduct examinations with an intraoral camera. This small device snaps digital shots of teeth from all angles, allowing up-close views of decay that the naked eye would miss. When repairs are necessary, they use modern materials and techniques, such as tooth-colored composite fillings and porcelain crowns, to restore the tooth's appearance and function. In addition, they offer cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics.
Just like you wouldn't brush your teeth with a Snickers bar, Dr. Linnemann doesn't like to leave his patients in the waiting room well past the appointed time. In his comfortable Fredericksburg Road office, mouths receive the individual attention required to please needy teeth. Dr. Linnemann, a feared opponent of high-fructose corn syrup, will don his spelunking gear and repel deep into your mouth in search of dangerous cavity caverns and the root of your pain. He'll blast out any impudent plaque with a high-pressure hose and capture your photogenic pearly whites with four x-rays for your grandma's mantle.
