The staff at SmileLabs of Oak Ridge are pros at teeth whitening. Team members assist clients in painting their teeth with a peroxide-based gel; the gel keeps teeth hydrated to reduce post-treatment sensitivity. Then, for 15–20 minutes, the Infinity Pro SL whitening accelerator's LED lamps kick the gel into action. The treatment can turn teeth two to eight shades whiter, making it more effective than at-home treatments and longer-lasting than painting teeth with whiteout.
Cavities, crooked incisors, stained enamel—none of these phase the oral professionals at Blount Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, which has tended teeth for three decades. Now helmed by Dr. K. Darrel Clabough, who brings his own 15 years of experience to the practice, the center has launched itself into the 21st century with technology such as computerized Cerec ceramic restorations. The center uses these restorations to create veneers that cover misshapen incisors and implants that fill in for missing teeth in the mouth of a model on a liquids-only diet.
Dr. Sonia Kherani and her amiable team at Hardin Valley Family Dentistry boost teeth to the peak of pearliness in a friendly, comforting setting. Clients can recline in comfy chairs while their ivories are thoroughly sanitized, zapped with fluoride, and scrubbed with a fine tooth-comb. After de-blemishing bicuspids and dislodging clandestine Skittles, oral technicians inspect every micrometer of the mouthscape for signs of disease, creeping cavities, or loose molars plotting secession. Four bitewing x-rays ensures that every enameloid is observing proper posture and not encroaching on its neighbor’s personal space.
Dr. Eades, a former U.S. naval officer and dentist for more than 10 years, brightens the smiles of children and adults via corrective and preventive dental treatments and a large catalog of knock-knock jokes. Tennessee Valley Dental's staff helps to instill proper hygiene methods in its patients and works to keep pearly whites sparkling with dental procedures that include cleanings, porcelain crowns, root canals, wisdom-teeth extractions, and tooth-whitening services.
The hydrogen peroxide in DaVinci Teeth Whitening’s signature plant- and mineral-based whitening gel can brighten teeth by up to 14 shades. The formula was developed and manufactured by the DaVinci company to strengthen enamel as it whitens, making it a more durable alternative to paper tooth covers. When applied in-office, technicians pair the photosensitive gel with rays from an LED blue light, which accelerates the bleaching process. Patients can also whiten their teeth independently thanks to at-home kits.
Developed in collaboration with cosmetic dentist Dr. Christian Yaste, Glam White is an at-home tooth-whitening product designed to deliver expedient results with minimum sensitivity.

There are three take-home kits to choose from and a tooth polishing and whitening kit, as well as an on-the-go pen perfect for touching up recently whitened teeth or paper that's only yellowed in certain spots.
