Lance E. Turner, DDS, searches for signs of disease or decay during routine checkups and uses an x-ray machine or on-staff sketch artist to capture anything that looks amiss. His client base spans from young kids at their first checkup to senior citizens. The staff takes the same attentive, personal approach to every service, from simple cleanings to more intensive cosmetic-dentistry treatments.
At Hayashi Dental Group, Drs. Randall T. Hayashi and Mikoyan M. Lagrimas believe oral health doesn’t stop at the mouth—it can impact the entire body. This observance of a mouth-body philosophy leaves them aware that plaque on the teeth can lead to clogged arteries in the heart. So it’s no wonder that the doctors emphasize preventative dentistry, such as oral-cancer screening and cleanings, before beautifying smiles with porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, or dental implants.
At Gleaming Smiles, trained staff assaults tooth stains with SmileLABS hydrogen-peroxide gel. After a coat of the potent solution, teeth soak in the whitening benefits for 20, 40, or 60 minutes beneath a cool, blue LED light. As the rays purge mouths of the bacteria that breed plaque and bad breath, they also safely and swiftly whisk away spots on teeth's surface and below. The process can purge stains from smoking or drinking coffee, tea, or wine, and replace them with bright white hues that are 2–10 shades brighter than before.
The team at Elk Grove Landing Family Dental Practice want families to feel at ease when undergoing general or restorative services. To that end, they create a welcoming atmosphere and thoroughly explain all treatment options to help patients make informed decisions. This could include masking the look of broken or misshapen teeth by encasing them in ceramic crowns, porcelain veneers, or tiny white tuxedos. The team also makes cavity fillings virtually undetectable with tooth-colored composites, and brightens already-healthy smiles with advanced whitening formulas. For patients nervous about procedures, they offer nitrous oxide to ease discomfort and make visits as easy and relaxed as possible.

Gone are the days when the only treatments dentists had in their wheelhouses were to pull rotten teeth with pliers or surreptitiously sign their patients up for bareknuckle boxing matches. At Smile Maker Dentistry, Dr. M. Soliman embraces modernity, helming a slate of procedures that can almost completely recreate one's smile from years past. In addition to preventative treatments like cleanings and exams, he can add on veneers, make dentures, and create dental implants designed to look exactly like the real things. Before he touches a tool, he speaks with clients to determine which treatment best suits their individual needs.
Dr. Soliman’s practice also dabbles in non-oral cosmetic procedures, offering a range of spa treatments including microdermabrasion and facials.
