The Fulbright Dental office solves tooth problems with state-of-the-art technology. During an exam, the DIAGNOdent, a dental laser scanner, forces mouths to reveal the cavities that naked eyes and x-rays couldn’t find, and an intraoral camera projects your yawn factory onto a screen. The cleaning purges plaque, tartar, tooth rot, and G.I. Joe heads from your mouth, and digital x-rays produce full-mouth pictures using 90% less radiation than traditional x-ray procedures.
For generations, a smile has been used to indicate that you are experiencing happiness, or are proficient at creating the physical illusion of happiness. Today’s Groupon will make sure your teeth give off no mixed signals with an exam, an oral cleaning, and dental x-rays from SmileWorks in Redondo Beach for $49 (a $225 value).

Dental Center of Redondo Beach's experienced smile squad, led by Dr. Alen Gharibian, restores crumbling mouth stalagmites and stalactites with modern dental solutions and advanced equipment. Professional pearly white pamperers begin each mouth makeover with a digital x-ray ($100) to peer into cracks and crevices above and below the gum line in an effort to detect signs of bone loss, decay, and cancer while reducing radiation by 70% in comparison to traditional dental x-rays. During the exam ($60) and cleaning ($75), dental doyens remove tartar buildup and polish choppers while offering an opportunity to call attention to problems, pains, or double-crossing imposter teeth.
Dr. Sormeh Panah and Dr. Arash Panah and their staff of smile-perfecting tooth jockeys keep grins looking swell with a suite of dental procedures. The two-visit veneer process starts with a consultation with the dentists, determining which teeth need porcelain coverings, choosing a shade, and creating molds to fashion the veneers and make a charitable donation of fake teeth for skeletons that forget to floss. On the second visit, hygienists thoroughly cleanse choppers, getting rid of tooth-bound gunk before applying cement to enamel surfaces. A quick-dry light speeds up the bonding process, expeditiously cleaving veneers to teeth. The veneers provide a durable covering for discolored or misshapen teeth and last for years, giving patients beautiful smiles in photographs and well-spaced bite marks on the giant, disembodied hands that feed them.
Garnering a Best of LA nomination, Joel Gould, DDS, and the crew of trained fang fixers at Wilshire Smiles turn up smiles' shine wattage with Zoom! teeth-whitening treatments. Clients can kick back in comfortable dental chairs as Dr. Gould inspects mouth caverns during the exam, which determines if ivory furnishings can be brightened safely. Once given a thumbs-up approval, gums, lips, and tongues head for cover while teeth are polished with a hydrogen-peroxide-based gel. A specialized light then cascades across the dentalscape during three 15-minute sessions, blasting away stain-written history notes to leave pearly whites up to eight shades brighter. Wilshire recommends guests bring iPods or books to stay entertained during the one-hour service, and resist the urge to sip red wine, gnaw tobacco, or poke squids until they ink for a few days following treatments.
