Dr. R. Todd Johnson and his team of tooth wizards work hard to boost chomper health and appearance. During dental exams, Dr. Johnson interviews teeth, gums, and tissue about any discomfort or signs of disease, then creates a comprehensive dental plan if warranted. Bitewing digital x-rays detect unwanted cavities squatting in the enamel, and a thorough cleaning scrubs away sundae-sauce graffiti, tartar, and plaque build-up before polishing ivories with flavored toothpaste. During the cosmetic smile analysis, Dr. Johnson scrutinizes tooth proportions and coloring, dispensing advice on how to spruce up smiley faces without having to download novelty emoticons.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $3,500 to $6,800); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Since graduating in 1994 from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill School of Dentistry, general dentist Dr. Chris Bowman has made his home in Charlotte, where his practice, Advanced Dentistry of Charlotte, continues to brighten smiles. In addition to regular cleanings and family visits, Dr. Bowman places special emphasis on in cosmetic dentistry and invisible orthodontics, restoring crooked smiles to a straight, immaculate state. His experience has earned him the status of Clinical Instructor and Mentor for Six Month Smiles while providing Invisalign treatment for more than 13 years as well. Dr. Bowman also provides sedation dentistry, dental implants, the new Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation procedure for receding gums, and oral appliance treatment for obstructive sleep apnea.
Zoom teeth-whitening treatments whiten teeth by up to 8?10 shades in one session, and custom-made whitening trays allow patients to polish their own chompers at home within about two weeks. To ensure the latest in dental techniques and services, Dr. Bowman attends an average of 100 hours of continuing education a year?far surpassing the state-mandated 15 push-ups.
The mouth doctors at Art of Modern Dentistry's Lincoln Park and South Loop offices hail from some of the top dental institutions in the country and attend to the multitudinous needs of teeth with preventive, restorative, and aesthetic treatments. As patients recline in comfy exam chairs while watching movies flash across flat-screen TVs, dental hygienists evict tartar and temporary tooth tattoos during routine cleanings. X-rays capture images of roots and jawbones that dentists can later glue to their break-room collage, and whitening procedures brighten smiles by removing coffee and tea stains. The team also performs surgical procedures, such as implanting custom-made artificial teeth.
At Day Break Massage & Wellness, therapists and aestheticians hope that time spent in their center is like hitting the pause button on a hectic day for clients. They start that process by talking to their clients and understanding their skin and body concerns before any procedure begins. At massage visits, personal goals may including stress reduction, muscle recovery, or improving flexibility. Aestheticians are also on hand to provide restorative spa services that include deep-cleansing facials, hydrating skin treatments, and body wraps that exfoliate better than falling asleep on the beach.
