Oak Park Dental Group has restored smiles for more than 36 years, and the office currently consists of a friendly staff and three doctors—general dentists Drs. Jan Cossar and Adrienne Wimbrow, as well as periodontist Dr. Ali Mehraban—who combine their varying specialties to cover the entire dental spectrum. Though emphasizing different areas of dentistry, such as cosmetic, periodontal, and family dentistry, the three doctors share a comprehensive approach to dentistry, considering both the function and aesthetic appearance of each individual tooth. The dentists' use of Cerec crowns, which are stronger than traditional crowns but appear natural, demonstrates their commitment to working with advanced technology to improve both the health and look of teeth. This advanced equipment is housed in an office that swells with elegance. In the lobby, dark hardwood floors run beneath leather furniture, and soothing yellow walls are relieved by broad windows that overlook a lush, green lawn.
When it comes to the color white, the trained specialists at Sparklen White Teeth don’t see every shade alike. During in-office treatments, they use an LED light to transform teeth between two and eight shades whiter. Each procedure causes little to no discomfort, and, if patients follow their practitioner’s aftercare suggestions, results can last for years.
At Miller Dental Group, Savannah native Dr. Robert B. Miller helps patients take charge of their own dental destinies by keeping them informed about their current conditions and educated about their options for treatment. To do so accurately, he and his staff employ digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, keeping track of the ins and outs of each tooth, revealing the extent of decay, and probing the depth of cavities.
Once patients make an informed decision about how to proceed, Dr. Miller keeps them comfortable throughout treatments such as dental implants, composite fillings, and root canals. Each treatment room contains a television to keep patients' minds occupied.
As one of the largest distributors of teeth-whitening products in the nation, Smile Splendor of Savannah polishes enamel with well-practiced confidence. Simple 60-minute procedures brighten smiles within the space of a single office visit, eschewing the uncomfortable trays of take-home treatments or the tooth-sized stamps required for mail-order whitening. As music or television lulls minds into relaxing trances, skilled technicians coat choppers in peroxide-based gel before activating the stain-breaking capabilities with a gentle, blue light, leaving teeth twinkling with a newfound sparkle up to several shades whiter than before. Peroxide whitening treatments may not work on teeth with caps, implants, or other manmade dental structures; consult the FAQ for more details.
At Smile Designs by Dr. Karen Cooper, grins beam up to eight shades brighter with Zoom! whitening treatments. Clients begin treatments by reclining comfortably with warm blankets, paraffin wax, and CD selections as a short preparation covers the lips and gums. A dental tech then smothers teeth in a hydrogen-peroxide-based gel, which activates under a specific Zoom! light to break up discoloration and remove coffee, red wine, tobacco, and grass stains. The treatment requires three, 15-minute bleaching sessions, during which the client may relax, listen to music, or attempt to complete a crossword puzzle in Pig Latin.
The owner, a dental hygienist with more than 30 years experience, decided it was time to strike out on her own. She opened The Smile Spa at Locks & Lashes Boutique, where she and her partner—a licensed massage therapist and Reiki master—perform highly specialized services such as hair extensions, permanent cosmetics, and Xtreme eyelash extensions. Massages and other treatments are administered in private rooms.
Dentists Matthew Rosenthal and William Gates want to give their patients the confidence to smile in photos. To do so, they prevent oral-health issues with exams and x-rays, and repair what they find with a selection of treatments such as fillings, implants, and crowns. Rosenthal Dental Group provides dental care to patients of all ages, except for that velociraptor skull you found in your backyard.
