During the appointment, ClearChoice Orthodontic's doctors and staff perform a dental examination before making precise molds of clients' mouths to foster at-home whitening. The tray, which is ready for pickup within four to five days of the impression, is worn a few hours each night, snuggling up to patient’s fangs so the professional-strength Ultra Radiance bleach can blanch bicuspids and ivory-ize incisors. Results vary according to age and habits, however people have been known to see teeth brighten one to four shades. The amount of Ultra Radiance bleach included in the deal should last around two weeks, though an additional container of solution can be purchased from ClearChoice for $30.

Dr. Mike Kesner has always had a knack for working with his hands. As a boy, he constantly built model vehicles. In college, his plans to become a medical doctor shifted to dentistry because it held more opportunity for the hands-on manipulation of small instruments and precision parts. In 1984, he established Made Ya Smile Dental, a place where he carefully extracts wisdom teeth, fills in spaces between teeth, and installs implants into the jawbone to replace a missing tooth. He also specializes in Lumineers, and his practice’s five locations together make up one of biggest Lumineers providers in the country.
Although he and his team of dentists work in separate locations, each of their offices share a similar design and set of amenities. Visitors at any of the five locations marvel at the reception areas’ coffeehouse ambiance as they sit at a café table, sip coffee, and work on the movie script for Vampires vs. Martians: The Reddest Dawn. In the treatment rooms, patients drift off while listening to music on the provided headphones. Anxious patients relax with nitrous oxide or the sounds of the rainforest simulated by the staff.
Board-certified orthodontist Vijay Bhagia has built a practice at Space Center Orthodontics that harnesses the latest digital technologies to correct patients' smiles. He uses cone-beam 3-D diagnostic imaging to capture detailed panoramic views of oral anatomy, such as bones, airways and sinuses, and rows of extra shark teeth. Once the terrain has been mapped out, the doctor helps to straighten misalignments in teeth and jaws. He and his staff fit adults or children with corrective equipment such as metal or clear braces, Invisalign aligners, and TMJ mouth guards.
The practice also puts an emphasis on patient comfort and enjoyment by outfitting the office with a slew of amenities. Its waiting room entertains patients in line for the dental chair with both Wii and PlayStation systems along with children's movies and fly-through visits by balloon geese. The office staff sews delight into mature crowds with a selection of intriguing books, news and entertainment magazines, and in-house ice cream to calm sweet-tooth cravings.
Dr. Yunus Langha and the team at Dental Clinics of Texas dedicate themselves to creating bright, beautiful smiles through general and contemporary cosmetic dentistry. During each treatment, they strive to provide the most thorough care, using both digital and panoramic Panorex x-rays and intraoral cameras to identify hard-to-spot, underlying problems before providing preventative or cosmetic maintenance. Cosmetic treatments include take-home teeth whitening kits, dental implants, and customized ceramic veneers that improve the appearance of chipped or discolored teeth. The team also pride themselves on working with new patients to ensure they feel comfortable and cared for, and even provide a Q & A page on their website so curious patients can find out more about available treatments, their own dental health, and chances of booking a toothpaste commercial.
