Dr. Scott Arnold, trained in a bevy of mouth-bone specialties, including implants, lasers, and computerized dentistry, leads a team of skilled dental-health professionals into battle against smile-tarnishing foes. The comprehensive exam includes examination of tooth troubles (decay, tumors, cysts) as well as oral-cancer screening and a spot check of existing restorations. Bitewing x-rays further probe gums, teeth, and mouth, and a full cleaning removes the plaque that obscures teeth from shining as brightly as a sheet of burning tinfoil.
Dr. Harold Kirksey doesn't isolate his practice to the mouth. He views dentistry as a holistic profession, one that addresses oral ailments for the benefit of the entire person. Therefore, his services strive to correct root problems and restore confidence, rather than simply cancel out symptoms. His porcelain veneers, crowns, and bonding treatments act as evidence of his extensive training in cosmetic and restorative dentistry. He also straightens teeth with Invisalign braces—less conspicuous than metal braces, they're unlikely to be detected by the malevolent Brace Fairy. Before he begins any treatment, however, Dr. Kirksey discusses patients' goals during a smile design consultation, which outlines a customized plan for obtaining a more carefree grin.

Salon Du Soleil's staff works to create a clean facility by completely sterilizing equipment and only telling PG-rated knock-knock jokes.
Dr. Dana and the staff of dental technicians at Carrollwood Dental illuminate smiles with in-office Zoom! teeth-whitening treatments. Clinicians first gently tuck away lips and gums, then layer grins with Zoom! whitening gel. A specially designed light activates the gel, which breaks up yellowing and stains with energetic oxygen surges and threats of soap-bar bubble baths. The sessions can last 90–120 minutes, depending on desired whitening levels, and clients can expect to see teeth lighten an average of four to eight shades. Brightened grins bathe in a five-minute fluoride treatment to strengthen and protect enamel without the use of cumbersome adamantium mouthguards.
Ideal Dentistry's office keeps mouths clean and healthy by offering anxiety control, a friendly staff with a gentle touch, and advanced technology. The Zoom! chair-side treatment, which lasts 45 to 60 minutes, keeps pearly whites pearly for a prolonged period of time. After lips and gums are covered to leave only eager chompers exposed, the dentist applies the Zoom! gel and lights it up with a laser-powered wand, activating its hidden whitening powers and changing channels on TVs for miles around. Working like a street sweeper in overdrive, the energized gel quickly cleans up stains and discoloration all along your toothy turnpike. The gel is applied three times throughout the treatment, during which the patient may relax and listen to music. With consistent post-whitening care, patients can expect their smile to maintain its newfound whiteness.
At All Ages Dental Spa, Dr. Beatriz Ribeiro-Totzke and her professional staff maintain adult and child chompers with a green philosophy that minimizes patient exposure to harsh chemicals and radiation-generating equipment. The visitation begins with a comprehensive examination, during which Dr. Ribeiro-Totzke explores facial caves to seek out hidden cavities, oral cancers, and gummy-bear speakeasies. Then a skilled technician snaps a series of low-radiation digital x-rays to expose the oral underworlds between teeth, gums, and jaw. Finally, a hygienist uses a whirlpool of foam and floss to undress teeth of plaque and outdated wooden mouthguards. Patients found to have periodontal disease will not be able to receive the cleaning.
