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.
Ron Haynes and his daughter, Jessie, have built a business from smiling faces. They don't snap yearbook photos or transform dentist gloves into balloon animals. Instead, they helm teeth-whitening shops that brighten smiles in 20 minutes, and since 2005, they have brightened over 50,000 smiles in 6 locations across 5 states.
Armed with Beaming White, an FDA-approved teeth-whitening system that pairs a peroxide-based gel with a UV-free LED light, their team of technicians helps clients brighten their choppers with an applicator pen. Cheek retractors expose the teeth so the gel and light reach every inch of enamel. Once the light unites with the gel, coffee, tea, and grass stains begin to vanish. Teeth continue to lighten after the treatment, achieving a color that's 3-5 shades whiter over the course of 24 hours. With proper care, results can last up to 12 months, or roughly the time it takes to adapt the phonebook into a comedic opera.
Smile Bright Teeth Whitening’s patented in-home and office-based procedures brighten smiles by removing stains, rather than tricking neighbor kids to paint rows of teeth with a coat of whitewash. During simple 40-minute self-administered treatments or one-hour office visits, a specially formulated peroxide gel combined with LED rays break down stubborn discolorations on tooth surfaces, front to back. After reaching their desired shade, patients keep up their newfound dental sparkle with occasional whitening sessions scheduled once or twice a month. Many customers notice dramatic improvements after only one treatment and additional gel refills are available for purchase through the Smile Bright website.
A specialist in implant surgery, there's nothing Dr. M. James Fagan, III enjoys more than restoring a patient's smile. He's spent the past 30+ years doing just that by replacing or improving teeth with the latest technology. This includes 3D CT scans for implants or bone grafts, as well as Logicon's grayscale-photography system for uncovering the subtlest signs of tooth decay. When surgery is in order, Dr. Fagan uses gentle conscious sedation techniques to make treatments as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
Celebrity Smile brings teeth whitening into customers' homes and offices via a mobile teeth-whitening spa. Equipped with transportable whitening lights and gel, the spa illuminate smiles during events such as birthdays, weddings, and high school football games. Celebrity Smiles can also brighten teeth in its Atlanta office. During the treatment, a whitening gel enhanced with hydrogen peroxide coats teeth while an FDA-registered LED light illuminates them, resulting in teeth that lighten 2–8 shades in about 15 minutes.
Bright Smiles Studio's fully mobile technicians travel to clients' homes with all the tools clients need to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own armchairs, beds, or flight simulators. Once set up, staffers guide clients through the process, showing them how to apply the whitening solution and position the blue LED whitening lamp correctly. Depending on how dazzling clients want their smiles to be, the sessions take place in 15-minute intervals for up to 45 minutes.
