The family dental team at Matthews Dental Associates, enhancing smiles since 1975, eschews wire braces in favor of Invisalign trays to guide teeth toward healthier, more aesthetic positions. Wearers rotate through of series of clear plastic trays that nudge teeth toward their optimal position while remaining virtually undetectable, much like a snowman's milk moustache. After an initial consultation and examination ensures candidacy for treatment, panoramic x-rays and impressions work in tandem with 3-D computer technology to design and crafts trays. During treatment, which can last up to two years, wearers graduate to a new set about every two weeks and can remove the trays at any time in order to brush, eat, or gnaw crayons.
Together, the highly trained staffers at Centre for Cosmetic Dentistry have dedicated more than four decades of their lives to improving people's smiles. They insert implants that look almost identical to the real thing for patients with missing teeth, and they apply Lumineers veneers for folks with damaged or discolored smiles. Teeth-whitening treatments are available to add an extra dash of shine. Though they specialize in cosmetic procedures, they're equally adept at general dentistry, including routine exams and cleanings. In order to make patients feel as comfortable and stress-free as possible, they've cultivated a warm, home-like atmosphere—complete with hardwood floors, floral paintings, and actors hired to dress up like your parents.
Dentist and recreational watercolor painter Dr. Jeanette Son brings an artist's aesthetic awareness to the cosmetic and general dentistry practice she founded more than 15 years ago. Backed by a six-person team, Dr. Son enhances pearly whites with smile-beautifying services such as in-office whitening and implants. Her background working with children's dentistry helps her usher baby teeth uneventfully into maturity, and her elegantly executed root canals mitigate chronic mouth pains. To stay abreast of perpetually advancing dental techniques, Dr. Son steadily augments her expertise with continuing-education classes, monthly study clubs, and implant courses. She also caters to a variety of cultures, as she is fluent in Korean.
Established more than 45 years ago, the teeth technicians at Kirkwood Dental Associates seek to listen, educate, and provide comprehensive dental care for patients in a personalized and professional manner. Their practice includes five dentists with more than 100 years of collective experience in eradicating incisor imperfections and capsizing cavities. Visit either of the two locations for all-important dental services. Enjoy the refreshment of a cleaning, including dental exam and bite-wing x-rays that will reveal the hidden treasure map tattooed on the crown of your left maxillary first molar. Alternately, teeth-whitening services begin by having custom trays fitted to in-office teeth. They'll be ready around a week later, along with a take-home bleaching kit sure to expunge coffee stains and freshly spilled tar from dainty dentition.
At Aesthetic & Special Care Associates, doctors Keith Nguyen and Jeffrey F. Rutledge prod at plaque buildup to leave mouth pearls polished and healthy. During an initial exam, one of the dental docs will visually assess choppers' vital signs, checking for evidence of periodontal disease, decay, or hidden wiretaps and recommending a proper course of treatment for alleviating any anomalies. Bitewing x-rays allow the cuspid custodian to delve deeper into each tooth's inner workings, utilizing digital radiology to limit exposure to potentially harmful radiation. The one-hour treatment is then capped with a meticulous molar cleaning, which diligently purges each meat masher of plaque and buildup—a process designed to leave patients with the shining grin of an open-mouthed walk through an automated car wash, but with less exposure on the local news.
