Dr. Matthew Keider and his team of trained tooth techs strive to polish pearlies with a personalized take-home treatment. In the first of two appointments, patients relax in a massage chair while the staff makes impressions of teeth in about five minutes' time. The dentist then masterfully crafts bleaching trays designed to fit only your mouth, allowing doppelgängers to be easily identified by their less dazzling smiles. During the second appointment, patients receive their custom trays and a two-week supply of hydrogen-peroxide-based bleaching gel from Perfecta. When worn 30 minutes a day for 7 to 10 days, ivories can lighten five to seven shades, resulting in the ability to camouflage chompers during goose-down-pillow fights on snowy mountains.
At Fielden Family Dentistry, Dr. S. Cody Fielden and Dr. Harry R. Culp form long-term bonds with patients, maintaining chompers while minimizing pain and discomfort. During the comprehensive dental exam, the friendly tooth technicians assess mouth bones and gums and screen for lurking oral cancer. Digital x-rays then capture enamel glamour shots to identify any hidden indications of tooth and gum ailments, producing 90% less radiation and fewer crop circles than traditional methods. A full cleaning follows, dispensing clients back into the world with a glimmering smile and the minty-fresh breath of a snowman.
Under the directives of Drs. Jacqueline Garner and Ralph Mensah, Integrative Family Dentistry gives detailed diagnoses to manicure mouths in a caring environment. Unlatch designer muzzles for the comprehensive exam, during which a specialist will rove for dental distresses through visual probing, bitewing x-rays, and panoramic film. A polished prophylaxis will restore cleanliness to tooth surfaces and gum lines. After thoroughly exploring the mouth, a dentist will report any signs of maladies, cavities, or misplaced car keys.
Captained by 21-year dental practice veteran Dr. John T. Walsh, the Dentistry of the Carolinas network of multispecialty dentists performs a full range of services, with some locations providing cosmetic whitening and dental implants. Their backgrounds in dental surgery enable them to expertly handle root canals and extractions, and their knowledge of Invisalign orthodontia helps them inconspicuously straighten out wayward teeth without metal braces or barks from a boot-camp drill sergeant. The team also performs a range of basic services, including routine cleanings that free teeth of hardened tartar and plaque, fillings, root canals, extractions, dentures and partials. Customers can contact their desired location for a full list of services.
With the aim of becoming the Ritz-Carlton of dental offices, Dr. Jean Woods and her staff lavish patients with individualized attention and luxurious amenities during aesthetic and general dentistry services. The staff soothes dentist's-office-related anxieties by blocking out sounds with a Bose headphones system or by painlessly warding off discomfort with a computer-operated local anesthetic. To remove plaque, they use a technique called air abrasion, which eschews harsh drills for compressed air. Whether boosting patients' self-confidence with root-canal therapy or performing general check-ups, the staff uses advanced technology, including intraoral cameras and rotary instruments. Dr. Woods keeps her tools sharp by participating in several professional organizations, including the American Dental Association and the North Carolina State Board of Dental Examiners. She also plays an active role within the community by sponsoring the shadowing program, which welcomes future dentists to explore the field and partake in its after-work foosball tournaments.
Ron Haynes and his daughter, Jessie, have built a business from smiling faces. They don't snap yearbook photos or transform dentist gloves into balloon animals. Instead, they helm teeth-whitening shops that brighten smiles in 20 minutes. Since 2005, they have brightened over 50,000 smiles annually across five states. The locations in North Carolina offer either convenience at their South Park Mall kiosk or privacy at their office locations. Armed with Beaming White, a special light activated gel teeth-whitening system that pairs a peroxide-based gel with a UV-free LED light, their team of technicians helps clients brighten their choppers with an applicator pen. An applicator pen exposes the teeth so the gel and light reach every inch of enamel. Once the light unites with the gel, coffee, tea, and grass stains begin to vanish. Teeth continue to lighten after the treatment, achieving a color that's 3-7 shades whiter over the course of 24 hours. With proper care, results can last up to 12 months, or roughly the time it takes to adapt the phonebook into a comedic opera.
