The team at West Coast Dental want to keep patients comfortable during visits. Virtually every aspect of the office reflects this, from the soothing colors to the kid friendly section of the office. The office layout further sets visitors at ease by emphasizing privacy. Apart from treatment rooms, designated consultation areas allow you to talk with the dentist at length and not shy away from the tough questions such as, "Do these braces make me look short?"
The clinic is also dedicated to staying up-to-date on the latest dental equipment. Staff members use low-radiation digital x-rays, and some locations are equipped with chair-side oral scanning, which employs digital imagery to ensure restorations fit securely.
New Line Smile Network is comprised of a team of experienced dental offices across the country, most of which are located in California. The expansive network functions symbiotically, with the mission to put the needs of clients first. Its resources help dentists attract new patients and its size helps patients locate nearby dentists for general and cosmetic dentistry needs such as teeth-whitening, cleanings, and dental exams.
Garnering a Best of LA nomination, Joel Gould, DDS, and the crew of trained fang fixers at Wilshire Smiles turn up smiles' shine wattage with Zoom! teeth-whitening treatments. Clients can kick back in comfortable dental chairs as Dr. Gould inspects mouth caverns during the exam, which determines if ivory furnishings can be brightened safely. Once given a thumbs-up approval, gums, lips, and tongues head for cover while teeth are polished with a hydrogen-peroxide-based gel. A specialized light then cascades across the dentalscape during three 15-minute sessions, blasting away stain-written history notes to leave pearly whites up to eight shades brighter. Wilshire recommends guests bring iPods or books to stay entertained during the one-hour service, and resist the urge to sip red wine, gnaw tobacco, or poke squids until they ink for a few days following treatments.
The Fulbright Dental office solves tooth problems with state-of-the-art technology. During an exam, the DIAGNOdent, a dental laser scanner, forces mouths to reveal the cavities that naked eyes and x-rays couldn’t find, and an intraoral camera projects your yawn factory onto a screen. The cleaning purges plaque, tartar, tooth rot, and G.I. Joe heads from your mouth, and digital x-rays produce full-mouth pictures using 90% less radiation than traditional x-ray procedures.
Dr. Sormeh Panah and Dr. Arash Panah and their staff of smile-perfecting tooth jockeys keep grins looking swell with a suite of dental procedures. The two-visit veneer process starts with a consultation with the dentists, determining which teeth need porcelain coverings, choosing a shade, and creating molds to fashion the veneers and make a charitable donation of fake teeth for skeletons that forget to floss. On the second visit, hygienists thoroughly cleanse choppers, getting rid of tooth-bound gunk before applying cement to enamel surfaces. A quick-dry light speeds up the bonding process, expeditiously cleaving veneers to teeth. The veneers provide a durable covering for discolored or misshapen teeth and last for years, giving patients beautiful smiles in photographs and well-spaced bite marks on the giant, disembodied hands that feed them.
The dentists at Night Owl Dental honor their practice's name by keeping owl-like hours, staying open nights and weekends to accommodate their patients' schedules. They tend to teeth with treatments ranging from preventative care to Invisalign, whose clear aligners are as unnoticeable as a girl with glasses and a ponytail. They also offer a lifetime whitening program, which supplies patients with free whitening-gel refills as long as patients attend their six-month checkups every year.
