A thriving practice founded by two accomplished doctors, Devereux & Nguyen Orthodontics cleans and corrects carrot cutters using a comfortable and metal-less alternative to braces. The straightening process begins with a full exam, which maps out tonsil caves using x-ray cameras and impressionable teeth trays. A 3-D graphics program synthesizes this information into a detailed chomper chart, helping doctors design a finely tuned set of invisible fang shifters that can help erase mouth gaps and ease crowding.
One may have to look around a while before finding a more advanced dental office than Exceptional Dental Family Dentistry. Behind the office’s cozy wooden floors, leather furniture, and walls strewn with sports memorabilia, an armament of diagnostic equipment and restorative techniques pulse between the hands of Dr. Darrell Bourg and his experienced associates. 3D imaging creates a full topography of mouths, giving the doctor the information necessary to replace missing teeth with dental implants that look and function naturally. At the cosmetic end, teeth whitening gently lifts out stains cause from coffee, smoking, and aging and tooth-colored composites replace conspicuous metal amalgams for fillings that are virtually invisible. Exceptional Dental Family Dentistry boasts associations that include Louisiana Dental Association, New Orleans Dental Association, BBB, The American Orthodontic Society, and American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
Dr. Mekari and his team of tooth technicians maintain chomper health with time-tested patient care and advanced dental technology. The one- to two-hour office visit commences with a thorough oral examination, during which a skilled tusk expert explores mouths for signs of oral cancer, plaque, cavities, and the tiny compartments where gummy bears stash their gold. After the premolar pop quiz, a technician snaps shots of your mouth pearls using the GXCB-500, a cone beam dental imaging system that allows Dr. Mekari to view interdental goings-on in full 3-D format, resulting in more comprehensive examinations in less time. Finally, a hygienist scrubs teeth in a flurry of flossing and polishing that removes the plaque and debris that toothbrushes leave behind, resulting in smiles that are sharper, shinier, and less likely to rust.
In the 14 years since he graduated dental school, Dr. Ken Morgan hasn't rested on his laurels. He's kept abreast of emergent technology and techniques, putting them to good use in his office. That's how he's able to perform such advanced treatments as dental implants, tooth-colored composite fillings, and durable veneers so thin they're nearly translucent. He also helps straighten out crooked grills with clear, custom-fit Invisalign braces, which guide teeth to their proper position while remaining virtually invisible.
A graduate of Louisiana State University and a member of the American Dental Association, Dr. Todd Canatella helms a staff of specialists well-versed in bite-beautifying procedures and up-to-date on technological advances thanks to courses and seminars. They use digital x-rays to reduce radiation exposure and perform regular checkups and cleanings to keep teeth healthy and well rooted. For grins in need of crowns, inlays, and onlays, Dr. Canatella uses Cerec CAD/CAM technology to complete these procedures in one visit without the usual litany of temporaries, appointments, and in-office sleepovers.
Clients smile whiter and brighter as they emerge from the offices of Solar Teeth Whitening New Orleans, which specializes in whitening treatments that can be performed during a single lunch break.
