The teeth technicians at each of Brilliant Smiles Dental Group's locations make mouths sparkle with a 60-minute in-office Zoom! whitening treatment. After a quick consultation and mouth preparation, gentle hands slather mouth bones with a scientifically formulated gel, which transforms into a stain-busting vigilante under the Zoom! light's glow. Chompers wave goodbye to stains from drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes, and scrubbing teeth with lemon meringue, and will immediately start to shine up to eight shades lighter with little to no residual sensitivity. Clients can achieve long-lasting results with proper maintenance and frequent lollipop-sacrifices to the Tooth Fairy.
Along with his advanced training in orthodontics and TMJ and myofascial pain disorders, Dr. Paul G. Grussenmeyer uses the latest technological advancements in a well-rounded approach to maintaining his patients' health and comfort. Dr. Grussenmeyer is one of the few dentists in the area to treat jaw-joint issues and upper-body pain, using methods such as intraoral appliances, myofascial-release techniques, and trigger-point therapy. He also harnesses cold-laser therapy to noninvasively treat tooth sensitivity, periodontal disease, and TMJ disorders. Instead of taking old-fashioned impressions with alginate or silly putty, Dr. Grussenmeyer creates digital impressions for restorations with the Cadent iTero 3-D system. Focusing on cultivating patient comfort, the caring doctor is able to use fewer shots and less anesthesia for soft- and hard-tissue procedures thanks to laser dentistry, for which he holds associate fellowship status and certification.
Cosmetic and implant dentists Drs. Gilbert, Andreassi, and Berger work hard not only to keep teeth healthy, but to create a warm, friendly environment where even nervous patients feel at ease. Dr. Gilbert's advanced training informs his dental-care techniques, and the former captain in the U.S. Army Dental Corp. specializes in periodontics, endodontics, oral surgery, and prosthetics. He and his co-dentists join forces with a smiling staff who help every treatment restore grins to their impeccable selves. Invisible braces, whitening, and veneers offer an alternative to wooden teeth and the kisses from woodpeckers that they invite.
Dr. Robert Stern takes satisfaction in straightening crooked smiles. He and Dr. Tanya Stavisky are backed by an experienced team, and they all work toward helping their patients achieve ideal oral health and maintain a preventive care regimen. The dentists can install Invisalign or conventional braces to straighten overcrowded or unevenly spaced teeth or correct strong over- or underbites. They also have experience treating conditions such as sleep apnea by designing mouthpieces that keep the throat from becoming blocked during sleep and make dreams about being a professional basketball player more realistic.
For Dr. Mitchell Brudno, keeping his patients comfortable is one of his main concerns. While in the chair, patients can feel free to zone out with MP3 players or read the doctor's mind while he conducts fillings, cleanings, or root canals. Nitrous oxide provides the next level of relaxation while keeping the patient awake and responsive. After treatment, Dr. Brudno and the team help prolong comfort outside the office by educating patients on how to avoid toothaches and dental decay.
At Lakeside Dental, Dr. Dorothy Drain draws upon more than 15 years spent maintaining and beautifying smiles. While conducting cleanings, extractions, and cosmetic services, the doctor works to assuage anxiety with a gentle chair-side manner in an office designed to reduce stress. Strains of soothing music drift through the air against furnishings in hues from beige to burgundy, and patients leaf through a selection of magazines, watch television, or simply meditate on which Civil War general had the most winning smile.
The friendly team at the office of Jeannette M. Morris, DDS, and Marko Jeftić, DMD, brighten teeth with in-office Zoom2 Whitening sessions that take just over an hour. Fang furbishers protect gums' soft tissue with a protective gel before applying a bleaching agent to the teeth. A special light activates the whitening solution while also illuminating glow-in-the-dark uvula tattoos. After treatment, mouth pearls gleam up to eight shades whiter, and clients return home with bleaching trays that can help touch up teeth or heighten their shine. Staff polishes all tools at a state-of-the-art sterilization center to get implements as sanitary as Mr. Clean's knock-knock jokes, and throughout treatment, DVD players pipe entertainment to patients’ eyes and ears.
