During the exam at Jefferson Dental, which welcomes walk-ins, one of the dentists from the smile-savvy staff ventures into facial caves in search of tooth decay and gum disease. A skilled technician then snaps x-ray pictures, uncovering hidden problems to use as blackmail. Opting to add cleaning ensures that a whirlpool of floss and paste separates debris, plaque, and tartar from enamel and that fangs look more polished than a socialite dipped in wax.
Smiley Dental's quintet of dentists keeps tooth decay at bay and gums healthy with general, surgical, and cosmetic dentistry for the whole family. Their gentle services cover everything from checkups and fillings to extractions, implants, and dentures. They also accomplish quality orthodontics with braces designed to suit the smiles of all ages.
Dr. Michael Caparas and his associates at each of the seven Metroplex Dental Care locations perform services using advanced technology, such as digital x-rays that release up to 90% less radiation and intraoral cameras. The doctors recommend a "sensible oral-health regimen," which includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and oral-cancer screenings. They help to repair existing maladies with restorative procedures such as root-canal therapy, and makeover smiles with veneers and whitening treatments. For sound sleep, the doctors fit apnea appliances and snore guards, ensuring that patients will no longer wake family members or lure a herd of migrating kazoos into the bedroom. Whatever the service, the doctors put patients at ease with their soothing chairside manner and variety of sedation options.
Dr. Rachel C. Azinge founded Dental Spa of Texas in order to combine her scientific knowledge of general and cosmetic dentistry with her keen eye for facial proportions. Inside the spa, she personally sculpts patients’ smiles with Zoom! teeth-whitening treatments, Invisalign, and porcelain veneers. Her staff of skilled aestheticians augments the range of tooth-centric procedures with microdermabrasion treatments, cosmetic injections, and restorative facials. The office’s reception area bolsters calmness with plush turn-of-the-century-style seating balanced by modern woodwork, lots of natural light, and photos of your childhood.
Who are Pure Dental's patients? They might be children embarking on their first dental checkup, teens wearing Invisalign retainers, or adults being fitted for custom porcelain veneers. Patients come to see the dentists here for myriad reasons, and in the process each one is made to feel at home at at least like they're at a celebrity's home. During appointments, patients relax with a Snuggie and a neck pillow, listen to music on the room's iPod, and watch TV. The practice also boasts eco-friendly amenities, most notably energy-efficient lighting and HVAC systems, organic paints, and recycled cabinets and counter tops.
One hour. In the time it takes to watch one prime-time drama, the trained technicians at Pure White Lounge can whiten teeth by up to eight shades. Armed with a hydrogen-peroxide or carbomide-peroxide gel and a safe—yet powerful—LED lamp, the team transforms less-than-white grins into radiant smiles without the cold sterility of a traditional dental office. A rundown of proper aftercare—such as avoiding soda for 24 hours or using only crocheted mouth guards—concludes each treatment, guiding clients to up to two years of whiter and brighter smiles.
