PC Cosmetic & Family Dentistry’s Dr. Amanda L. Thompson tends to tooth needs with general and cosmetic dentistry, treating gum problems, whitening teeth, and installing ceramic veneers. While she performs a dental checkup or fills a cavity, patients watch TV or zone out as a relaxation CD pipes gentle music into the treatment room. She even improves the rest of the face with the help of beauty injections such as Juvéderm and Botox, which smooth wrinkles and plump up deep lines next to the mouth.
Dr. Trey Rosdick spic-and-spans patients' teeth in the comfort of a massage chair or sends cuspid-whiteners home with the tools needed to white-wash their own tooth-fences. During a 30- to 45-minute exam, a tooth technician peers into the depths of your oral cavity, searching for signs of uncleanliness, decay, or ancient prophecies written on gum walls. Thorough cleaning sweeps away plaque and tartar before gentle polishing with fluoride paste makes enamel shine brighter than an emerald icicle. Digital x-rays let the staff inspect tooth-roots for underlying issues, and expose your body to up to 90% less radiation than traditional film x-rays.
In an immaculate office with dark hardwood floors and dental massage chairs, a friendly staff welcomes patients and takes digital x-rays as it preps them for Dr. Haleigh Blackwell. A native of Birmingham, Dr. Blackwell views her patients as family and performs her preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry with a gentle touch, taking the time to ensure her patients completely understand each procedure and why it is necessary. She keeps herself continually educated and employs the latest technology, such as Biolase Laser and intraoral cameras, which more accurately identifies tiny cracks and cavities caused by wear, sweets, or standing too close to opera singers mid-aria. Whether performing a filling or root canal, she always strives for a pain-free visit and can discuss a variety of methods to relieve any discomfort during visits.
Drs. James Sampson and Byron Ketcham and their dedicated team help maintain teeth and educate patients on oral health at Sampson Family Dentistry, which has been serving Birmingham families for more than 30 years. During the comprehensive exam and oral-cancer screening, the friendly staff takes a detailed look at teeth and gum tissue to identify any abnormalities, potential trouble spots, or secret love notes stashed between molars. Up to four x-rays suss out hidden cavities and measure bone levels, and an expert cleaning eradicates plaque and banishes tartar above and below the gum line. After the appointment, which lasts 45 minutes to an hour, patients leave with brighter smiles without the aid of delicate light-bulb caps.
Patients choose between Zoom! or Lumibrite whitening, then sit back as the dentist slathers teeth with special whitening gel. While Zoom! pairs its gel with a specialized light to scare away discolorations and leave food choppers bright, Lumibrite's gel works by itself, a loner in the art of whitewashing ivories. After the procedure, teeth will walk out of the office as white as a glass of fresh-squeezed milk. A set of whitening trays go home with Groupon holders, further aiding in the battle against stained incisor insurgency.
The teeth-whitening professionals at White Smile Central believe that a brighter smile is a gateway to success. With that in mind, they help whiten clients' teeth with a variety of premium in-office treatments and take-home whitening treatments. Each treatment harnesses professional-grade peroxide gels and LED lights to accelerate the whitening process while causing little to no sensitivity, brightening chompers up to 12 shades in the process. White Smile Central's gold or platinum in-office treatments can expedite the whitening process, quickly erasing the unsightly evidence left behind by gulps of coffee, sips of wine, and attempts to drink all of a pen's ink in one sitting. White Smile Central also offers remineralization gels, which reduce tooth sensitivity and strengthen enamel by replenishing important minerals.
