When Dr. Naeemah Lewis looks at teeth, she sees the entire face. In her eyes, teeth are more than just appliances for chewing food. They are support structures that hold up the lower part of the face, contributing significantly to a person’s overall appearance. With this outside-in approach to orthodontia, Dr. Lewis is able to carefully consider facial aesthetics, shape, and balance before designing an orthodontic plan. This first step in designing an orthodontia plan is crucial because the results of orthodontic treatment, like the highest-quality haircuts, can last a lifetime.
Dr. Lewis outfits her warm purple-and-blue office with advanced orthodontic technology. Digital x-rays reveal the hidden positions of roots while reducing radiation, and fully digital displays looks out for the environment by eliminating the need for paper.
For 30 years, Dr. Harper and Dr. Gilmore have worked to fix up the smiles of their patients at their University Heights family dental practice. They skillfully perform basic cleanings and exams, fillings, crowns, bridges, root canals, and implants.
As she plunked accounting formulas into a calculator during another long night of studying, college student Lisa Browning found herself drifting into daydreams about the day she changed someone's life. At the dental practice where she worked part-time, a woman in her mid forties had recently arrived with a mouth filled with dentures. Having worked her way up from receptionist to de facto dental assistant, Browning helped install implants and restore both dental arches with fixed bridgework. At the post op appointment, Browning saw a complete change in the patient?hair done, makeup on, fashionably dressed, and radiating with confidence?all thanks to a new smile. Browning tried, and failed, to derive a similar sense of satisfaction from the dry formulas before her on the textbook page.
Browning soon scrapped accounting, telling her calculator "it's not you, it's me," and enrolling at the Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine. Today, her expertise in general and restorative dentistry?as well as cosmetic treatments?has earned her recurring appearances in the Guide to America's Top Dentists. She is also a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, whose members undergo continual education each year beyond the requirements mandated by state dental boards or federal anti-frowning regulations.
Using all-natural gels and fully customized tooth trays, Pro Smile Teeth Whitening brings professional-caliber dental treatments to homes across the country. After molding the kit to their own teeth?a process that takes just over a minute?customers fill the tray with gel and start their smile-brightening journey. Enhanced with an optional LED treatment, the whole procedure takes about 30 to 60 minutes a day for 7 to 14 days, and results last up to six months with regular brushing. The trays retain their shape permanently, so unless customers lose them or sprout a set of tusks, they can repeat the whitening process as often as necessary by ordering gel refills.
Carla D. Miller, DMD and CDM Dental’s team of specialists craft beautiful, healthy smiles with advanced technologies and gentle techniques. The office's two assistants attended the same certification program, building a strong bond and knowledge base that they extend to each patient who walks into the office or enters their exclusive treehouse. With the help of her dental specialists, Dr. Miller administers preventative treatments such as dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays to keep teeth healthy inside and out. Cosmetic and restoration procedures, which include whitening, dental implants, and crowns, brighten and repair smiles, allowing teeth to spend less time applying makeup every morning. Dr. Miller routes out gum problems with periodontal care, and treats TMJ, wisdom teeth, and sleep apnea with oral and maxillofacial surgery procedures.
Hudec Dental's justice league of dentists and hygienists stave off tooth decay and preserve mouth sparkles through a variety of general, restorative, and cosmetic dental practices. Cleanings executed by a trusted enamel advocate expunge teeth of plaque, tarter, and Lego-block buildup, abating risk of gum disease and cavities. A tooth technician then carefully analyses each gumstone, investigating the likelihood of infection, worn-out dental work, and tooth decay. During 15- to 30-minute whitening appointments, a slathering of extra-strength bleaching gel blanches mouth bones until they shine as brightly as an Einstein going supernova. Hudec's office is open Monday–Friday, offering extended evening hours until 7:00pm on Thursday.
