Dr. Adam N. Carson and his sparkling staff polish teeth to ever-pearlier shades in the modern offices of South Beach Dental. During the 60- to 90-minute Opalescence Boost treatment, patients recline in a turquoise-hued examination room as a tooth technician freshly mixes a batch of bleaching solution, ensuring maximum potency and freshness. The shining salve, which packs in potassium nitrate and fluoride for extra strength and cavity protection, is chemically activated, removing the need to spend time under lights or smiling awkwardly at the sun. While waiting for their appointments, patients can lounge on the earth-toned waiting room's leather couch and try to sway the chandelier's crimson gems by blowing really hard. Complimentary valet parking stables steely steeds during office hours.

At Relax and Smile Dental Care, Dr. Steven Roth and his staff of cosmetic-dentistry specialists can reshape and reshade teeth with natural-looking composite laminate veneers. The crew shapes each veneer by hand, using treated composite materials to create a thin, smooth shell that can even out each tooth’s texture without the need to wear a mouth guard made of sandpaper. The shield attaches to the tooth surface in a painless, drill-free procedure that is completely reversible yet ensures a long-term bond. Teeth often appear straighter and whiter after treatment, and composite veneers can be quickly repaired if chipped, unlike porcelain veneers or beef.
With a staff of 150 licensed dentists, hygienists, and dental assistants, Community Smiles conducts dental exams that aim to detect problems early and instruct youth on healthy brushing and eating habits. Examinations can also prevent more serious health conditions caused by cavities and gum disease, such as diabetes, respiratory diseases, and infection. Community Smiles has set the goal to provide free dental examinations for 80 children from low-income families, but the organization requires additional funding in order to complete this goal.
Dr. Marco A. Contreras' training in general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry spans two continents and more than 20 years. In the early nineties, he learned the fundamentals of dentistry at Central University of Venezuela before migrating to the United States where he studied increasingly advanced cosmetic and restorative techniques. Now, in his own practice or neighbor's backyard, he affixes dental implants that replace gaps with natural-looking prostheses and fills cavities with porcelain, eliminating the necessity for metal amalgam. A believer in continuing education, Dr. Marco devotes himself to keeping up-to-date on the industry’s most cutting-edge techniques, equipment, and procedures.
Instead of harboring the scents of antiseptic, hallways and treatment rooms fill with pleasant aromas. Bright lights stay away as relaxing glows radiate from soft illuminators. World music flits into ears alongside the sound of bubbling emanating from in-office waterfalls. Smile With Zenitude shuns an uncomfortable "clinic" environment, relying on a variety of relaxation methods to help calm patients before any dental procedure, Botox treatment, or hormone therapy. And if all that fails, the aesthetic center's team of dentists can ease patients into more tranquil states by administering oral sedation or describing a summer's rain using hushed tones.
