Your Groupon covers a cleaning to get your pretzel-snappers as white as really good typing paper. The hygienists at Ashton customize cleanings for your specific gum and bone health, using medicated gels and prescription mouth rinses when necessary to ensure optimum cleanliness and minimal discomfort. You’ll also get an x-ray evaluation to see if any of the tooth fairy’s vengeful hexes have taken root. Ashton uses digital x-rays, which provide a high level of accuracy and use less radiation than traditional methods, such as pixies with magnifying glasses, and hunches. Finally, your Groupon covers an exam by one of Ashton’s friendly and professional dentists.
The menu of treatment options at the Taheri Dental Group is as well-rounded as the clinic's eight-doctor team. Aside from carefully examining teeth with digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, doctors also helm more complex procedures, such as root canals, and straighten teeth with invisible Invisalign braces. But despite the cutting-edge techniques, the staff's first order of business is always to make guests as comfortable as possible. And so, they offer optional sedation dentistry, which does much to calm nervous patients, much like a dentist who builds trust by filling his own cavities first.
An innovator in the field, Dr. Brenton W. Burger' is board-certified in oral and maxillofacial surgery. This commitment to aesthetic innovation informs the rest of his practice, where visitors can avail themselves in a range of services. Facials and chemical peels make sure skin looks as radiant as a sunset, while monthly specials on botox and fillers smooth out wrinkles.
The ultramodern Arlington Center for Dentistry looks more like a spaceship than a dentist's office. Sliding glass doors give way to a private waiting room equipped with a flat-screen TV and bright-red leather couch. Beyond its translucent walls, massive pillars painted gold and bright green pepper the path to the reception desk, interspersed with more flat-screen TVs to entertain patients perched upon circular benches that look as though they might lift into the sky at any moment.
The smooth, corner-less aesthetic hints at the state-of-the-art treatments administered beyond the waiting room, where seven experienced doctors??among them dentists, oral surgeons, orthodontists, endodontists, and pedondontists??strive to ensure a healthy, happy future for each smile. With an emphasis on creating lasting doctor/patient relationships, they gently guide mouths on custom treatment plans that can include everything from invisible braces to chip-covering Lumineers. Full-mouth and panoramic radiographs combine with comprehensive periodontal charting and bite analysis to pinpoint problems with precision, and model wax-ups of teeth present a mockup of how teeth will look after cosmetic treatments or if they fail to give up their candle-snacking habit.
Using a combination of whitening gel and FDA-approved blue accelerating lights, the DaVinci teeth-whitening system can leave teeth an average of up to eight shades whiter. During office visits, clients apply the signature whitening solution?an organic plant- and mineral-based gel?to chompers. A specially designed LED laser light is used with the food-grade hydrogen peroxide gel to lift lingering stains. Once the tonal transformation is complete, patients may walk away with the graffiti of tobacco, wine, coffee, and age erased from their smiles. To continue the process, Davinci also produces a take-home personal whitening kit that includes 12 gel applications, an LED accelerator light, custom-fitted trays, and remineralizing and desensitizing gel to care for enamel.
