Bleaching is a non-invasive dental treatment that whitens teeth an average of four shades. Your treatment begins with a 20-minute consultation with Dr. William J. Schlotz, who will review dental history and take impressions to make customized, clear plastic whitening trays. About a week later, stop by the office to pick up your whitening treatment package and instructions on how to use it on your soon-to-be-sparkling mouth bones. The average length of the whitening treatment is about five weeks, and visible results become apparent after two weeks. You can apply the whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a couple of weeks depending on your desired level of whitening. Consult with Dr. Schlotz for recommendations.
Father and son duo Dr. Farhad Moshiri and Dr. "Maz" Moshiri recalibrate uneven food mashers with superior-quality cosmetic and restorative orthodontics for clients in need of smile tweaking or total smile rejuvenation. During the Invisalign exam, patients will receive a comprehensive evaluation of their bite, including x-rays, pictures, tooth impressions, and tooth impersonations for the monthly orthodontic comedy showcase. If desired, clear, virtually undetectable molds will then be constructed to get sneakily shifting chompers back into neat rows.
The mouth maestros at Kingston Dental Care illuminate smiles with the light-activated Zoom! process, effectively whitening chompers in 45- to 60-minute appointments. After sipping a complimentary beverage in the waiting room, patients relax in cushioned chairs as dental professionals blanket tarnished teeth in a gel formulated to lighten mouth ivories an average of eight shades under the rays of a special Zoom! lamp. Changes are visible right after the treatment, sending patients back into the world ready to say cheese and consume cheese with confidence.
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 30-minute 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. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of 11–18 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
A love for music, the outdoors, and the Cardinals isn't quite enough to keep Dr. Eric Dankoski, Kirkwood Dental Care's lone dentist, away from the tools of his trade. While working, he makes a point to keep patients informed and at ease, chatting about his wife, kids, and dog, or perhaps explaining why all dentist chairs are stuffed with warm cotton candy. Patients can prepare for their visit by reading up on teeth at the online dental-education center, then surprise the staff—who develop their own know-how in conferences and seminars—by describing gum disease.
From a simple cleaning to a complex dental implant, Dr. Gary Gershilevich has done it all during his 20-year tenure as a dentist. A number of technologies have helped him along the way, including digital x-rays, which have 90% less radiation and the ability to Photoshop any unsightly discoveries. Dr. Gershilevich also uses an intraoral camera to zoom in on areas of the mouth and display his findings on a screen for patients to see and better understand.
