Per their name, the five clinics that compose Brilliant Smiles Dental Group can lighten teeth by up to eight shades in a single hour. Their secret is the Zoom! whitening system, whose light-activated whitening gel penetrates each tooth’s surface, lifting deep-seated stains along the way. Like the clinics’ veneers and crowns, their whitening treatments beautify smiles more effectively than a bracelet wrapped around your tongue. However, the clinics complement their aesthetic services with preventative care, such as x-rays and gum disease screenings, as well as cleanings, root canals, and other general dentistry.
Dr. Ufberg and his friendly staff at Ufberg Dental cultivate friendships with their clients, who relax with entertaining amenities while their teeth undergo professional sprucing. During the dental package's 90-minute roster of treatments, guests recline atop TempurPedic cushions with a client-chosen movie while a camera projects up-close chomper shots onto a viewing monitor. The scrutinizing session is followed by the handheld ViziLite cancer screener, which sheds light on any problem areas with a pen-size lamp. To express teeth's poetic inner thoughts and track cavities, a quartet of digital x-rays snaps interior shots of maws, and a fresh coat of fluoride fortifies enamel strength. Smiles finish up by previewing a simulated portrait of what they'd look like with veneers, allowing them to try on a new identity without the hassle of tooth toupees. For those opting for the two-hour Zoom! treatment, a stain-blasting lamp illuminates teeth to make chompers up to eight shades whiter.
Dentex Dental’s team of dentists emphasizes the importance of disease prevention, arming their clients with information on proper brushing habits, flossing techniques, and lifestyle choices during comprehensive exams. Of course, should a client succumb to cavities, gum disease, or having their teeth sealed shut with taffy, the pros will employ the latest technologies to help treat the problem at hand. They also offer a range of cosmetic services, including teeth whitening and porcelain veneers.
Dr. Thomas W. Gamba graduated from Temple University's School of Dentistry in 1976 and has since logged hundreds of hours of post-graduate continuing educational work. Dr. Gamba has been known to drop knowledge as if it were new toothbrushes, teaching at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine and publishing several articles on the topic of dental ethics. The Philadelphia Phillies have Dr. Gamba to thank for their pearly premolars and brilliant bicuspids. You'll receive the same expert treatment at your appointment, when Dr. Gamba will peer deep into your mouth for signs of trouble, take pictures of your teeth for the office yearbook, and address any concerns, pains, or existential ennui before degunking your charming chompers.
Voted best cosmetic dentist by Philly Hot List, Dr. Shulman puts a glamorous twinkle in local grins with his toothsome array of services. Go broad and get chompers checked with a new-patient exam, x-rays, and cleaning (a $285 value), or aim for specifics by turning your head into a lighthouse with Nite White professional teeth whitening (a $275 value). Learn how to sharpen blunt beaver bicuspids into gleaming wolf fangs with a porcelain veneer preview, which includes photos of how you would look with a full set of porcelain veneer (a $450 value). An Invisalign preview lets you learn more about a transparent aligner that straightens teeth without braces (a $450 value). The Invisalign preview includes impressions, photos, and x-rays followed by a computer simulation showing how your teeth would look after the full Invisalign treatment. For those who fear the dental chair and its personal associations, sedation dentistry sends a sedation substance to patients at their home; ingest it an hour before your appointment, grab a friend or trusty mare to whisk you away to the office, and let the sedation guide you into a dreamlike world of sugarless plum fairies and molar ice caps (a $350 value).
