For the team of dentists at Cornerstone Dentistry, cosmetic dentistry is about more than just good looks. So although he leaves mouths looking impeccable with implants, full-mouth reconstructions, and rhinestone-bedazzled canines, he never loses sight of the primary concern of any procedure?ensuring healthy relationships between the jaws, teeth, and facial muscles.
With an approach described in Palm Springs Life as "concierge health care," Cornerstone Denistry sees far fewer patients than the typical dentist or armchair psychiatrist, giving each patient greater attention. The dentists find they can maintain a higher standard of work with these longer appointment times while also building a friendly rapport with their patients. The dental group plans to open a third location in Glendale this June.
Dental hygienists at SouthWest Dental unite more than 20 years of experience to safeguarded smiles with comprehensive exams and bleaching services. During an initial assessment ($68), a dental expert thoroughly inspects and x-rays ($110) teeth to glean a clear sense of their condition and determine their value on the tooth-fairy stock market. Next, a thorough scrub-down and polishing ($85) ensures a silken-smooth grin. Patients continue oral ablutions in the comfort of their homes with a bleaching kit ($199) composed of trays and a tube of whitening solution. Chompers luxuriate in trays for 30 minutes at a time, allowing clients to kick back as bleaching agents battle stains from coffee, wine, and Rorschach blots.
At Smart Dental Rialto, Dr. Marcelo Toledo leads his friendly team with more than 20 years of experience. During each of those years, he stayed up to date on emergent techniques through continuing-education courses, which had an emphasis in implant dentistry and cosmetics. He has accrued so much expertise, in fact, that he imparts it on future dentists; for nearly a decade he?s been a professor at Loma Linda University.
University of Southern California grad Dr. Armound Mahmoudi brings more than 15 years of dentistry experience to every tooth he polishes and every cavity he boards up. He and his team offer both routine and cosmetic care, including digital x-rays and composite fillings, as well as teeth whitening and porcelain veneers.
Dr. Craig Wright channels 25 years of experience into his practice with help from his amiable staff as he offers his focused attention to each patient. Clients who opt for Invisalign receive a custom-made series of aligners made with smooth, comfortable plastic, which maintains its transparent form by existing partly in another dimension. Wearing the aligners gradually and gently shifts teeth into place without metal brackets or tight wires. Dental specialists create new aligners every two weeks until smiles are straightened while wearers confidently conceal their tusk-straightening secret from the outside world.
Dr. Paul C. Simeteys stands at the helm of The Dental Suite, where he uses his more than 30 years of expertise to reinforce his clients' health and ensure their comfort. In addition to preventive care, such as disease screening and cleaning, the friendly team performs restorations and cosmetic treatments including teeth whitening and crafting custom porcelain veneers, whose thin, durable material can effectively correct odd tooth shapes or skewer the trunk of a tree to expose its syrup supply. While waiting for appointments, patients can relax in the gilded reception area with golden wood trim and glossy marble flooring.
