Led by Doctors Steve Mangan and Louie Allred, Mangan Dental Group’s fleet of seasoned teeth technicians enliven ivories with expertly administered Zoom! whitening treatments. After an initial consultation and mouth inspection, hygienists lacquer chompers with a specially formulated whitening gel, and patients kick back for 45 minutes as teeth bask under the Zoom! light’s glow. Beneath the lamp, the gel’s hydrogen peroxide transforms into a stain-busting vigilante, scrubbing away surface smudges and build-up from recent ink-chugging contests. Across the course of the two-hour visit, clients marvel as jaw gems lighten an average of eight shades, with results that can last up to a year with proper brushing, flossing, and bon-bon sacrifices to the Tooth Fairy.
Dr. John Cloud, a recognized Master in the Academy of General Dentistry and a Fellow of the American College of Dentists, has been tending to local teeth since 1983. Roll out your tongue-red carpet for a comprehensive dental exam ($46), with one of Dr. Cloud's skilled hygienists exploring the terrain of your toothy forest for cavity caverns or plaque mines. X-rays (up to a $55 value, depending on the number of x-ray bitewings used) will offer an in-depth insight into the contours of your canines and positioning of the molar solar system, while a cleaning ($71 for adults, $57 for children) will leave pearly whites polished and pristine. For patients who haven't visited the dentist in awhile, Dr. Cloud and his staff may opt to perform a full-mouth debridement ($125) instead of just a regular cleaning, with patients undergoing a more intensive scrub-down of chompers to eliminate buildup of bacon bits or "Dole/Kemp '96" stickers within the teeth.
