Smith Family Dental's Drs. Steven and Morgan Smith have designed their office to keep patients as comfortable as possible?both during and after appointments. Once in the chair, patients can don pairs of Bose surround-sound headphones and watch movies or shows playing on the ceiling-mounted TVs. Nitrous oxide soothes patients before treatments, especially when it's coupled with one of the office's blankets, pillows. After root canals or fillings, the team can use OraVerse reverse anesthetic, which helps restore feeling to the lips and gums.
After completing his degree in dentistry, Dr. Daniel West stepped up his game by signing on for an additional 100-plus hours of continuing education, including a residency in dental implants. This expertise comes in handy on a daily basis at his practice, where Dr. West crafts porcelain crowns and veneers in minutes using a special CEREC machine. The doctor also uses technology for preventive care, including an intraoral camera to get a close-up of chompers and digital x-rays to check teeth’s inner chambers for squatting cavities.
Oral Design Dental really lives up to the design part of its name; it's one of the few dental offices that allow patients, under the guidance of a dentist, to design their own smile. A computer simulation helps patients select their smile's shape and size, showing them what it would look like with different shades and translucency or whether making every other tooth circular would be aesthetically pleasing. It's one of the services that has drawn the attention of the Utah Jazz basketball team, several of whose players have turned to Oral Design Dental for their smile makeovers.
An onsite dental lab that uses both the American and European schools of porcelain application means that smiles are completely customized and teeth look very natural. The onsite lab also ensures that patients can have complete mouth restorations in just one day.
Since 1956, Woodbury Family Dental's talented dentists have kept teeth in mint condition with services that range from routine cleanings to complex oral surgeries. They skillfully perform these treatments with the help of advanced technologies such as the Waterlase laser, which replaces unpleasant drilling with a gentle combination of laser beams and water. Patients can also opt for cosmetic procedures, such as veneers or Zoom 2 teeth whitening, which lifts stains from drinking coffee or brushing teeth with toothpaste from the gag store. Sedation dentistry puts nervous patients at ease throughout appointments.
Dr. David Duke loves technology. At Dental Designs, he uses an intraoral camera—a pen-size device that projects the teeth and the crevices between them onto a screen for easy examination—among other gadgets to help him treat his patients. Dr. Duke’s services include preventive care and reconstructive dentistry, though he vests most of his interest in cosmetic enhancements, such as teeth whitening, veneers, and Invisalign, clear orthodontics that secretly straighten smiles.
