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.
Floss Dental's dentists and surgeons, many of whom are often featured on local TV stations, may specialize in preventative care, but they also beautify mouths with cosmetic- and reconstructive-surgery services, such as veneers, Invisalign, and dental implants. They harness panoramic x-rays to get a complete view of the teeth, and they broadcast these pictures on a TV, which helps them explain which treatments are necessary and to point out which tooth would look best with an inlaid diamond chip.
Floss Dental encourages patients to keep coming back by offering free Invisalign consultations and free Boost whitening once a year to those who maintain their regular cleanings. Flat-screen TVs and satellite radio entertain patients during their procedures, and sedation dentistry keeps them free from anxiety in a dream-like state.
Although Dr. Andy Chang practices the full range of general and family dentistry, he excels at restoring and repairing damaged and missing teeth with prosthodontics—a skill that requires an additional two to three years of training for most dentists. Over his 15 years of experience, he has combined his skill in bridges, crowns, and implants with cosmetic services including whitening and veneers. To further augment the restorative process, Dr. Chang’s office also keeps a ceramist on hand—a luxury afforded to just one percent of all dental practices—who does in-house crafting and color-matching of all dental prostheses. During treatments big and small, patients stay relaxed and comfortable, listening to music or daydreaming about stopping a bank robbery armed with nothing but their smile.
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.
