Dr. James Kinkade?a third-generation dentist and sixth-generation Coloradan?and his team work together to protect their patients' oral health by using cutting-edge diagnostic and treatment technology. Digital x-rays and a proprietary scanning device allow the staff to check for signs of decay or disease and the ultrasonic scalers efficiently remove plaque.
The specialists at Kinkade Dental Studio can help repair damage with porcelain crowns or veneers, and the team also specializes in dental bonding, which uses tooth-colored composite resin to conceal chips or cracks while removing as little of the existing tooth as possible. Dental implants, root-canal therapy, and holographic fillings are a few of the more complex procedures that Dr. Kinkade can take when necessary. However, the practice always emphasizes the importance of preventative care so that troublesome teeth don't develop complicated conditions or violent coups against each other.
The dentists at Boulder Dental Center, Littleton Dental, and Flatirons Dental Center, some of whom are faculty members at the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine, obviously care for their patients. They use digital x-rays, which administer less potentially harmful radiation, laughing gas to relax anxious patients, and a computer-controlled anesthetic-injection system for diminished discomfort.
But what sets the dentists at these two clinics apart is the fact that they also care about those other than their patients. The dentists have lent their skills to the less fortunate, volunteering for mission trips to rural Tennessee, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic, as well as a t the 2011 Colorado Mission of Mercy, a two-day event that provided free dental care to more than 1,300 people.
Sun Smile encourages customers to pamper themselves with services such as teeth whitening, spray tans, and pre- and post-spray tan products. Customers can grab at-home kits stocked with carbamide peroxide whitening gel to gain pearly smiles on their own time or sit in for an LED-assisted bleaching procedure. Mystic spray tans eschew harmful UV rays for a spritz-based tan that offers a temporary bronze perfect for secretly napping in a sculpture gallery.
Hampden and SouthPark's experienced dentists protect pearly whites with a preventative course of care that cleans and checks for nascent cavities. Treatment begins with a comprehensive exam, during which a tooth detective ducks into molar back alleys to search for signs of oral cancer and gum disease. An advanced machine then snaps a series of high-quality bitewing and intraoral x-rays to reveal tooth decay, abnormalities, and coins tucked away under tongues for future magic tricks. A full cleaning refurbishes all corners of the mouth, removing plaque and tartar, and delivering eviction notices to half-chewed stowaways. Patients impressed with the gentle and attentive care can take $100 off their next dental treatments, including cosmetic dentistry, implants and orthodontics.
Although Dr. Leo T. Leins of Lone Tree Dental Associates is truly a family dentist, his skills aren't limited to doing fillings and explaining why you should never brush with chocolate syrup. He has trained extensively throughout his 25-year career during continuing-education courses, specializing in areas such as implantology, orthodontics, and cosmetic techniques. In addition to keeping himself up to date, he has outfitted his office with the most modern tools, such as tooth-colored fillings and panoramic x-ray equipment.
The Transparent Smiles practice is more like a hip salon than a dentist's office, with smart TVs, iPads with music and games, and massage chairs to keep patients comfortable during treatments. Friendly staff members apply organic, mineral-based DaVinci whitening gel to teeth before activating it with a laser. The process is safe for existing dental work, strengthens enamel while removing stains, and lightens teeth up to eight shades on average.
