Hudec Dental's justice league of dentists and hygienists stave off tooth decay and preserve mouth sparkles through a variety of general, restorative, and cosmetic dental practices. Cleanings executed by a trusted enamel advocate expunge teeth of plaque, tarter, and Lego-block buildup, abating risk of gum disease and cavities. A tooth technician then carefully analyses each gumstone, investigating the likelihood of infection, worn-out dental work, and tooth decay. During 15- to 30-minute whitening appointments, a slathering of extra-strength bleaching gel blanches mouth bones until they shine as brightly as an Einstein going supernova. Hudec's office is open Monday–Friday, offering extended evening hours until 7:00pm on Thursday.
