At Ideal Dentistry, Drs. Christian W. Hahn and Dr. Gill specialize in cosmetic dentistry. Both doctors dedicate themselves to performing handcrafted cosmetic techniques that imbue refurbished smiles with a natural and realistic appearance. When patients arrive, they're escorted to a private consultation room to meet with one of the doctors and discuss their desired results. After a "quick-look" exam and a few digital photographs, the doctor will help the patient determine which dental tests and treatments should follow on their next visit.
The doctors demonstrate their compassion for patients and commitment to health by using safe, advanced dental technology. They also use safe and aesthetically pleasing compounds such as white composite and porcelain. So dedicated is Dr. Hahn to the use of natural ingredients in dentistry, he is the founder and president of Dr. Hahn?s Naturals, which exists for the sole purpose of replacing harmful chemicals with natural dental products. In addition, technologies such as digital x-rays spare patients the radiation exposure and anachronistic lectures of traditional x-ray equipment.
Once known simply as CC Spa, CC Medi Spa added a whole new suite of services to its menu when it added a word to its name. To supplement the facials, manicures, and pedicures the spa always offered, its aestheticians are now joined by chiropractors and massage therapists who provide health-boosting bodywork. The dermaplaning that they offer removes all facial hair and may help minimizes fine lines, wrinkles and pre-cancerous skin cells.
The team partitions their 4,000-square-foot space into private rooms, each dedicated to a specific kind of service and ancient Sumerian deity. While one person relaxes in the massage room or sits in the pedicure room's leather throne, others can wait their turn on the lobby's plush taupe couches, bathed in tinted light from the tall windows obscured by pale violet curtains.
The Kentucky Center for Orthodontics’ trio of doctors all got into orthodontics when they realized just how much a great smile can improve someone’s life. Dr. Douglas Durbin, the inventor of the Flosspik polypropylene interproximal dental cleaner, Dr. Thomas Garner, and Dr. John Huang enhance the smiles of both children and adults with Invisalign treatments, braces with clear brackets, and invisible retainers glued to the back of teeth. They use digital imaging to construct treatment plans, they avoid headgear whenever possible, and they never just pull out a tooth when it won’t cooperate. Under their steady hands, The Kentucky Center for Orthodontics has straightened the teeth of more than 35,000 patients, including Miss Kentucky USA 2009 Maria Montgomery.

The associates at Maui Whitening Louisville believe that getting teeth white should be as quick and convenient as getting a haircut. They've streamlined the teeth-whitening process so that appointments take about 30?90 minutes.
During visits, clients apply the professional-grade whitening gel, and sit under a professional-grade teeth whitening light that accelerates the process, while an associate is standing by. This light activates the gel, which lifts stains and yellowing from teeth yet gentle enough to provide a non-invasive pleasurable teeth whitening experience. Maui Whitening ensures the gels are effective by having fresh gels delivered every month.
Afterward, clients can see how much whiter their teeth are by comparing their smile to a bleaching shade guide or holding up an egg to their mouth. Most teeth become 6?10 shades brighter after first 20 minute session.
The staff at The Smile Center knows a trip to the dentist can be stressful. That’s why it has leveraged technology to create a comforting environment for patients. HD televisions outfitted in each treatment room keep nervous thoughts at bay with shows, movies, or 3D images hidden inside the static channels. Flat-screen monitors are also outfitted in each room so dentists can easily display images when explaining treatment plans to patients. The office keeps its procedures updated as well, using digital x-rays to allow dentists to uncover any hidden maladies with less radiation than traditional treatments. And, a digital charting system enables the office to go paperless, saving trees and the cool clubhouses that perch in them.
Kentucky native Dr. Ann Luckett has dedicated her dental career to staying abreast of emerging dental techniques. This dedication is evident through her comprehensive exams, custom-crafted crowns and dentures, and Kör teeth whitening procedures—a technique designed to permanently whiten teeth.
