Dr. Stewart Fenigstein has worn the title of “dentist” for nearly three decades. Over the years, his practice has adapted to new techniques and technology such as Zoom teeth whitening and Invisalign, but has always remained dedicated to providing clients with a caring environment. The first time Dr. Fenigstein meets patients, he takes time to lay down the foundation for a long-term relationship. He listens to their concerns, medical history, and perhaps a haiku or two they’ve composed about the office waiting room. Then, he becomes familiar with the patient’s mouth by scrutinizing teeth with his own eyes as well as with panoramic and bitewing x-rays.
The dentists at Better Smile of WNY's two contemporary offices—including the newly opened Harlem Road location—use a combination of good old-fashioned know-how and the latest types of dental technologies to keep plaque, cavities, and tartar at bay. During appointments, they deploy digital X-rays, intraoral cameras, and a CEREC machine, which allows them to create full crowns, inlays, and veneers in just one visit. For those apprehensive of a visit to the dentist, the dentists use the Biolase laser system, which cuts back on the need for needles or the mule-powered jaw drills of yesteryear.
A coalition of 15 experienced dentists forms Stellar Dental Care, whose practices offer oral care six days a week. These 15 strive to see their patients have a lifetime of good dental health, offering services that prevent decay and keep teeth in working order with a slate of cleanings, exams, and x-rays. They also boast a virtually paperless office—rather than filling out multiple paper forms, patients enter their information into a computer terminal.
As the official dentist of the ever-cheerful Buffalo Jills, Dr. Douglas Hamill, DDS, knows a thing or two about smiles. He calls upon years of teaching and professional dental experience to assist his team during both routine visits and more intensive treatments.
Dr. James Lesinski has practiced cosmetic dentistry for more than 20 years, fine-tuning smilebones with professionalism and personalized care. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial one-hour exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
