The Transparent Smiles practice is more like a hip salon than a dentist's office, with smart TVs, iPads with music and games, and massage chairs to keep patients comfortable during treatments. Friendly staff members apply organic, mineral-based DaVinci whitening gel to teeth before activating it with a laser. The process is safe for existing dental work, strengthens enamel while removing stains, and lightens teeth up to eight shades on average.
Protecting smiles is a time-honored practice. However, Dr. Heather Stamm and Dr. Kai Kawasugi take a modern approach to this practice by embracing cutting-edge technologies whenever possible. The dentists and their staff are capable of providing general as well as cosmetic care, either catching troublesome conditions early and preventing them from becoming larger issues or correcting existing signs of damage, all with the use of modern dental technology. The E4D system, for example, creates custom-fit crowns, inlays, overlays, and veneers on the same day as the patient's initial visit. Medical-grade lasers can whiten teeth or remove cavities. Additionally, Dr. Stramm and Dr. Kawasugi can use tiny cameras to show patients the insides of their mouths or the interior of a tube of toothpaste. Although these options only represent a handful of the services available at Stamm Dental, the doctors always maintain their commitment to use advanced technology and compassionate care to make patients feel as comfortable as possible.
Drs. Stuart and David Bennett can see the future. Whereas most dentists look into patients’ current dental states, the father-and-son team at Bennett Signature Dentistry uses advanced equipment to both read and help direct patients’ dental destinies. Diagnodent can detect cavities a full year ahead of traditional x-rays, and computer bite analysis measures tooth positioning and helps guide corrective treatments with digital modeling.
One might expect such technology inside a cold, sterile environment, such as a hospital or an android couple’s honeymoon suite. Although Bennett’s graphite hues and stainless-steel fixtures do reflect a commitment to modernity, the clinic also contains an array of anxiety-soothing comforts. Complimentary food and drinks emerge from the countertops of the kitchen, and patrons sink into comfortable fireside chairs. In each operatory, massaging dental chairs work to knead out tension, and flat-panel televisions in front of patients stream Netflix movies and shows.
The cold, blue lights that shine inside Screamin’ White Teeth’s office are not for decoration. Each one emits a wavelength of exactly 465 nanometers—the most effective wavelength for activating the hydrogen-peroxide gel used to whiten teeth. The trained staff slathers teeth in this gel during 15-minute whitening sessions, performing up to three consecutive treatments to reveal the most noticeable results. Previous patients have seen teeth lighten more than eight shades after a triple appointment. The whitening formula used at Screamin’ White Teeth is both safe and effective on natural teeth, as well as veneers, caps, crowns, and dentures made with Chiclets.
While practicing dentistry over the past two decades, Semi Condoianis, DDS has seen dental technologies come and go, but one thing has remained consistent—her commitment to patient comfort . She and her team at Dentistry 360 perform services, such as fillings and root canals , with laser technology, often eliminating the need for painful drilling and shots. They also remove decay with electric hand pieces and minimize discomfort by delivering anesthesia by computer rather than stork. For fillings, Dr. Condoianis uses a mercury-free, photomimetic composite to match the color of the restored tooth.
Ashby Dental is helmed by Dr. Andrew Ashby, who plies his proficiency in implants, composite fillings, crowns, and bridges, along with a suite of restorative and routine services. During cleanings, Dr. Ashby pampers clients with calming perks, including access to in-chair headphones that soundtrack overhead television sets. The office also keeps clients healthy and informed with digital, low-exposure x-rays that emit less radiation than the vast majority of traditional machines or super villains' home planets.
