Growing up in Cañon City, Colorado, home of the famous Royal Gorge, Dr. Jay F. Morris learned a thing or two about natural beauty, unchecked erosion, and impressive bridgework. A former pediatric dentist, Dr. Morris began working in cosmetic and restorative dentistry in 1993, and today his dental practice commits itself to helping patients reinforce their smiles' strength and natural beauty with an arsenal of cutting-edge dental techniques geared toward undoing the effects of enamel erosion. His gentle chair-side manner and genuine concern for patients are trumped only by his expertise and focus on mini dental implants. Along with an armory of advanced tools, such as soft silicone dentures, he also uses 3-D digital x-rays that accurately reveal oral topographies while generating significantly less radiation than traditional x-rays or a high-five from Marie Curie.
The bleaching experts at One Hour Smile illuminate smiles with an in-office teeth-whitening treatment that brightens stained or discolored teeth by an average of eight shades in one 60-minute session. As patients relax within one of eight private rooms, a blue LED light activates carbamide peroxide in a dental-grade, neutral-pH gel for 45 minutes, lifting stains caused by such substances as coffee, tea, and tobacco. Next, a 15-minute desensitizing session helps restore natural minerals to the enamel, minimizing discomfort caused by years of listening to pretentious wisdom teeth. To ensure individuals receives their desired results, technicians discuss any special considerations before the procedure.
