At Kansas City Dental, Dr. Guerschon de Laurent addresses cosmetic, restorative, and preventative oral-health issues at their roots. The multilingual doctor employs a host of technologies, including intraoral cameras and digital x-rays, to project detailed views of the mouth and to find the underlying causes of dental aches and periodontal disease. Dr. Laurent corrects crowding or spacing problems with Invisalign retainers, gently coaxing teeth back into place with such successful results that in 2011 he earned the title of Premier Invisalign Provider in recognition of the more than 300 jaws he’s straightened. A commander in the US Army Reserves Dental Corps, Dr. Laurent also plies his trade abroad while serving members of the armed forces and on humanitarian missions that have taken him to Central America and the Caribbean.
Naturally White Teeth Whitening lifts dental stains with a specialized gel made with natural ingredients. The gel is gentle enough for sensitive teeth, and vitamin E oil keeps gums and lips moisturized throughout treatments. The procedure's gentle touch doesn't lessen its effectiveness, though. Blue LED light beams activate the gel, lightening the hue of natural teeth, veneers, crowns, or porcelain artifacts an average of 8–12 shades.
The staff at Thomas Anderson & Associates strives to make clients smile—and not just during their before-and-after pictures. Massage chairs, flat-screen TVs, and a wide selection of movies and music help make visits to the office as relaxing as a tumbler of whiskey enjoyed in one's very own pit of quicksand. Technicians apply a gentle touch when performing exams, x-rays, and other general-dentistry procedures. Cosmetic services—including teeth whitening and Invisalign—remain as noninvasive as possible.
Dental Excellence's five experienced doctors promote dental diligence through a wide-ranging slate of services. After parking in a cushioned chair to circle every conjunction in the provided magazines, clients saunter into one of 22 treatment rooms, where they can watch cable television and calm tense necks with a pillow. A toothologist then burnishes smile rocks and eliminates pernicious plaque during the cleaning ($76) before carrying out recon work on the palate with a complete oral exam ($64) to detect early signs of decay or resemblance to Burton Gilliam. After cleaning and examining the gums and mouth bones, the team will perform digital x-rays to view potential runaway teeth and malformed roots ($113). The full visit, like most transcontinental crab walks, takes approximately an hour and a half.
Weather-worn logs and steadfast chinking dating from the 1800s envelop the renovated private rooms of a rustic log cabin, where today Dr. Steven C. Mingos and his team of expert colleagues settle oral frontiers with a modern arsenal of lasers, x-rays, and other technologies. Digital images of panoramic or bitewing x-rays zip onto flat-screen TVs, and laser detectors hone in on latent cavities undetectable by x-rays or technicians' thorough examinations. As petite intraoral cameras magnify mouths up to 40 times during complicated procedures such as root canals and restoring implants or veneers, sunshine streams though a series of skylights, which helps cosmetic techs to whiten chompers to natural hues and create convincing single-tooth implants, full denture sets, and fake IDs for lingering baby teeth.
