Dr. Mike Franklin didn?t always see himself as a dentist; in fact, he worked for seven years in corporate America before deciding that helping others was his true calling. He decided to study dentistry, a choice that would lead him to open Vivid Smile Dental Center in 2011. Dr. Franklin and associates perform a full slate of preventive, surgical, and cosmetic procedures, including routine cleanings and checkups, x-rays, root canals, dental implants, crowns, and teeth whitening.
Led by the experienced Dr. Freemont, Freemont Dental & Orthodontic Care's sparkling staff specialists maintain patients' smiles with a full lineup of routine and reparative procedures. The approximately one-hour appointment begins with a complete census of the teeth and gums, wherein a technician searches for signs of excessive wear, oral disease, or counterfeit teeth made from Chiclets. The patient's pearlies then receive a comprehensive scraping and scrubbing, which helps remove buildup of plaque and tartar and polish the toothy surfaces to a mirror-like sheen. Finally, a series of x-rays reveals the hidden history of teeth, helping to ensure that they are sturdy enough to withstand everyday rigors, such as gnawing on a desk chair until it fits in the broom closet.
Imagix Dental & Orthodontics' team of smile shiners leaves gleaming grins in its wake at offices stationed across the Atlanta area. To begin whitening sessions, clinicians paint pearlies with a special light-activated gel, then switch on the Zoom! light to activate stain-lifting action that erases discoloration from coffee drinking, cigar smoking, and oil swigging. Lips and gums are shielded so that only enamel whitens as clients listen to music or relax in chairs. The sessions last about an hour, after which chompers emerge an average of eight shades lighter, and offer a quicker alternative for brightening smiles than outfitting mouths with solar panels.
