Per their name, the five clinics that compose Brilliant Smiles Dental Group can lighten teeth by up to eight shades in a single hour. Their secret is the Zoom! whitening system, whose light-activated whitening gel penetrates each tooth’s surface, lifting deep-seated stains along the way. Like the clinics’ veneers and crowns, their whitening treatments beautify smiles more effectively than a bracelet wrapped around your tongue. However, the clinics complement their aesthetic services with preventative care, such as x-rays and gum disease screenings, as well as cleanings, root canals, and other general dentistry.
Dr. Aaron Ufberg and Dr. Ford Stevens share their expertise in cosmetic and restorative dentistry with clients at Dentistry on the Hill. When treating clients of any age, Dr. Ufberg, who earned his doctorate in dental medicine at the University of Pittsburgh, and Dr. Stevens, who studied at University of Pennsylvania, tap into their certifications in bleaching, veneers, and surgical implants to offer comprehensive dental services. Through meticulous work, the dentists can ensure good oral health and enhance the cosmetic beauty of clients' teeth so they can garner compliments from friends, family, and tongue-depressor salesmen.
Plush gray couches and contemporary black tables induce states of calm inside the Philadelphia Institute of Cosmetic Surgery's waiting room. The corridors and reception area inside the beauty-bolstering office eschew the clinical appearance of traditional medical facilities for more a home-like décor, such as warmly lit floor lamps, paneled curtains, and porcelain figurines enveloped in snuggies. In the experienced hands of the office's highly trained staff, led by founder and medical director Dr. Zaki Ftaiha, a slew of surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic services, such as Botox, implants, and microdermabrasion, smoothes and reshapes corporeal housings. Philadelphia Institute of Cosmetic Surgery's standards for patient care and treatment match the goals set by hospitals, earning the office accreditation from the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
With more than 30 years of experience, Dr. Stephen Gershberg of The Art of Dentistry has just about seen it all: chipped teeth, uneven smiles, and cavities so big they owned their own water pick. This experience allows him to help patients with virtually any dental situation, from routine checkups to advanced cosmetic and restorative procedures. He whitens yellow or stained teeth, repairs damaged teeth with porcelain crowns, and replaces missing teeth with dental implants. For those with crooked smiles, he offers subtle, nearly imperceptible, Invisalign aligners. But before performing any of these services, Dr. Gershberg conducts a thorough consultation, discussing everything from dental health and sleep issues to jaw pain resulting from a steady diet of Sour Patch Kids.
Invisalign premier provider Dr. Catherine M. Foote crafts stunning smiles on faces of all ages with personalized Invisalign and Invisalign Teen treatments that earned her a top orthodontist award in 2010 from Philadelphia Magazine. During the first visit, expert technicians snap shots of preening teeth with 3-D photo technology and take digital x-rays to check for stowaway plaque. Dr. Foote scrutinizes images to determine whether Invisalign is right for the patient and creates a customized treatment plan to address specific oral issues. Invisalign manufacturers use the 3-D imaging and molded impressions of teeth to craft a series of clear, calibrated, and removable aligners that cradle teeth for two weeks, comfortably and subtly correcting crooked bites. Over 9–24 months of treatment, patients receive a new set of aligners every two weeks until teeth have reached their desired location, such as a vacation house in Acapulco.
Dr. Alan Fan’s decade-long journey as a dentist began when he graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine on the dean's list. As a full-service practitioner, his many tricks of the dental trade include performing root canals and straightening teeth with braces.
