Westport Dental's Dr. Michael Katz brings more than 30 years of experience, a friendly staff, and the latest in tooth technology to the service of your chompers. Your trip to the pie-hole professionals at Westport starts off with a complete oral exam, including checking cuspid crannies, bicuspid byplaces, and molar ammo dumps for signs of trouble, cavities, and suspects on the FBI's most wanted list. For the unseeable unsavories, x-rays are taken, revealing your roots and bringing their sordid affairs to light to check for signs of decay. You'll also receive a professional tooth cleaning, which squeakifies your morsel mashers like toothbrushes can only dream of doing. If you have questions about further beautifying your oral stalactites and stalagmites, ask for a free cosmetic consultation to learn about any applicable procedures.
The grin curators at Bleach Bright Smiles, armed with safe BleachBright gel, clear mouthpieces, and blue-light-emission LED lights, set out to whiten tooth collections by two to eight shades. Under a precisely calibrated glow, a carbamide peroxide solution attacks evidence of coffee, bilberry wine, and permanent markers that have scuffed dental façades over time. After about half an hour, you'll be ready to go home and illuminate the room with your smile during power outages and solar eclipses.
Most artisans begin training in their craft at a very young age, and Dr. Christopher Napolitano was no different. He began his apprenticeship in transforming smiles in high school, when he crafted dental prostheses at his father's lab every summer, gathering the experience and predilection for the color white that would spur him through dental school.
Today, Doctors Napolitano and Merchanthouse lead a staff through restorative and cosmetic treatments to repair and enhance pearlies in treatment rooms fitted with cable televisions and iPod docks. Digital x-rays in those rooms expose patients to less radiation than conventional machines and enable the dentists to discover hidden problems almost instantaneously. Beyond cleanings and preventative care, the crew performs restorative procedures that leave teeth healthy and appealing in case the mayor forgets the scissors at a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
At Cranston Cosmetic Dentistry & Dental Associates of Rhode Island, Les Prasad, DDS, works to keep grins beautiful and healthy with services ranging from teeth-whitening treatments and veneers to implants and dentures. The doctor and his crew undergo continuing education to keep up with changing technologies including intraoral cameras and Invisalign straighteners. In the reception area, goldenrod light blooms across framed artwork and walnut-hued leather sofas, and a TV helps guests pass the time or practice their favorite news anchor's smile.
