Upon arriving to the office for services such as Zoom! teeth whitening or immediate-function Nobel dental implants, patients may wonder if they've accidentally stepped into a spa. To ensure they stay comfortable, guests receive a complimentary massage, along with warm, scented face towels and heated blankets that can help ensure they stay relaxed during the treatment and that their complimentary pot of cheese fondue remains at the ideal dipping temperature.
The continually educated mouth specialists of Sunshine Dental keep smiles healthy with a tag team of preventative dentistry and modern technology. During the appointment, a licensed dentist scours the mouth for signs of decay, cavities, and lost gummy bears (a $97 value) with an attention to detail normally only exhibited by pickleball referees. X-rays, including four bitewings, an extraoral, and a panoramic (a $234 total value), allow the certified tooth whisperer to inspect cuisine crushers in greater depth in a set of black-and-white snapshots. Take-home whitening treatments evict the yellow from teeth with stain-fighting bleach and a sheriff-delivered court order. Mouths that return dutifully to the dental office every six months for a checkup receive additional treatments for free.
With over 50 years of combined experience and as members of the American Association of Orthodontists, the orthodontists at Miller & Teel have been helping patients achieve beautiful, healthy smiles using cutting-edge dental technology. During the initial exam, doctors inspect mouths for bite problems, screen for signs of oral caner, gum disease, and temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), and scrutinize hard tissue for lesions or secret candy stashes. When your mouth is ready for its close-up, a set of x-rays will reveal any fugitive abnormalities lurking under the mouth’s morally upright surfaces. After receiving its stamp of healthy approval, the doctor will then take impressions—or molds—of the teeth, to be used in the Invisalign treatment.
Regular checkups allow Dr. David G. Willis to maintain the health of teeth and gums. That might include whitening stained teeth, or extracting teeth that refuse to get along with their neighbors. One of his specialties is the restoration of broken or worn teeth with services like custom veneers. All treatments come with a consultation. Dr. Willis works with each patient to ensure that dental needs are met to suit each client's unique smile needs.

The technicians at Simply White specialize in whitening teeth, first painting them with a whitening gel, then accelerating its work with a beam of blue light. However, the bleaching gel doesn't have to work via peroxide. The technicians' love of nature shows through in the potted plants that adorn their homey, chartreuse-accented office and in their natural whitening gel. Their organic formula, combined with blue accelerator light technology, is applied to teeth for 15-30 minute intervals. Meanwhile, the blue light works to accelerate the chemical reaction, for a result that can brighten teeth up to 10 shades. Their slightly stronger peroxide formula, meanwhile, can strip away up to 14 shades of staining.
