Looking at his datebook, you would think Dr. Kent S. Lamoreux never gets tired. When he’s not working at his dental practice, he's teaching as an adjunct professor at the Case School of Dental Medicine. When he's not teaching, he donates his time and dental expertise to the Free Medical Clinic of Greater Cleveland. After more than 30 years as a dentist, he tried to give retirement a shot, but quickly found that he enjoyed his work even more than gardening, airplane-model building, beekeeping, or the other hobbies retired people are legally required to take up.
Happily back at work, Dr. Lamoreux’s dental practice benefits from his boundless energy and zeal. When he found he wasn't content with standard extractions and root canals, Dr. Lamoreux learned to cover the full range of dental services, from general dentistry to cosmetic and restorative types. His comprehensive knowledge base means that he can treat patients himself, which is the leading cause of the thick layer of dust on his rolodex of dental specialists.
Silvestro's team of teeth technicians is led by veteran dentist Anthony R. Silvestro, Jr., who applies a full-court press of teeth whitening services to break apart offensive teeth stains. For a smile whiter than the Queen's linens, opt for the Zoom! Whitening in-office treatment. Zoom! utilizes laser technology and Zoom! gel to comfortably erase stains and restore the mouth's natural glimmer. Do-it-yourselfers can say goodbye to coffee stains by taking home a week's worth of teeth whitening products. By letting teeth set in trays lined with a special solution for a few hours a day, discolorations will meekly take flight and go their own way, like Dumbo.
Whispering Pines Dental’s experienced team corrects crooked smiles with ClearCorrect—a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The ClearCorrect process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 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. ClearCorrect's brand of invisible braces straightens dental dandies in fewer stages than Invisalign due to greater movement from each clear tray. Its material remains slightly less noticeable and will not cloud with usage.
Dr. Michael Guirguis and his expert team of pearl polishers start each exam by inspecting inner-mouth mountain ranges for cavities and decay. Ivories then shake off all remnants of excess tartar and leftover tartare during a thorough cleaning. A full set of x-rays helps to identify any deep-seated cavities, structural issues, or third sets of teeth waiting in the wings. After completing the exam, patients receive a take-home Opalescence whitening kit to make their newly inspected smiles sparkle. Like an open-mouthed walk through a car wash, the kit supplies speedy dental illumination, its nutrient-rich bleaching gel overpowering stains and yellowing. A custom-fitted tray allows for chopper comfort during gel applications, which require up to two hours per session and about two weeks of total treatment time.
Calling on more than 40 years of experience, Beachwood native Dr. Daniel Glick and his staff of seasoned technicians polish teeth with general and cosmetic dental services. Families can flock to Dr. Glick's warm, welcoming office, which was designed for his patients' comfort, complete with window-facing chairs that allow patients to admire the green landscape or survey it for soon-to-spout flash mobs. There, they'll also find the latest treatments for everything from gum disease to temporomandibular joint disorder, as well as services tailored to treat dental issues specific to kids and athletes. Dr. Glick is so confident in the care provided by his office that he offers a warranty that covers any damaged sealant, composite filling, crown, or bridge so long as patients maintain their regular six-month checkups and avoid snacking on rocks.
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 as well as more complex procedures, such as root canals.
