The healthy smiles coming out of Gables Dental Care are the result of a multi-faceted approach to dental care that consists of preventative, restorative, and, most importantly, preventative treatments. Dr. Gabriela Aran and her staff perform regular examinations as a first line of defense against disease and decay. In the event that an untreated condition has already led to damage, Dr. Aran and her team can treat the area using basic as well as surgical methods. They can even make smiles look flawless and radiant by applying porcelain crowns and veneers, inserting tooth-colored composite fillings, or gluing small pieces of glitter to each bicuspid.

Through the windshield, he perceived a pair of red, glowing Mothman-like eyes, possibly belonging to a Mothman or Mothmanesque entity. The eyes grew brighter as the Mothman drew closer to his vehicle, and thinking quickly, Gene flashed his sparkling, well-maintained smile, blinding the likely Mothman’s compound eyes and sending it screaming into the night sky like a clumsy child’s untied balloon.
The softly scented candles and soothing music that permeate Gables Perfect Smile may remind visitors of a spa and not a dental practice, but this calming atmosphere is simply the manifestation of Dr. Victor Gutierrez goal to make patients as comfortable as possible. Since opening a private practice in 1994, the dentist has enrolled in continuing-education courses to master skills in areas ranging from cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry to implant dentistry. Today, the team of dental professionals work with each patient or tooth fairy to craft a custom plan that can include treatments such as Invisalign teeth straightening and full-mouth reconstructions. They can also perform sedation dentistry to keep patients as calm as possible.
In addition to the standard lineup of general and cosmetic dentistry services, Gables Perfect Smile boasts technology-based treatments such as the Waterlase MD dental laser, which removes tooth decay without using excess heat, vibration, or demolition trucks. Their smile makeover calls upon cosmetic imaging to render a preview of patients' potential smile.

A 3D television in each room works to keep patients occupied while the doctor looks around with a small, digital interoral camera, saving you the hassle of a lot of head-tilting and prodding. Meanwhile, aromatherapy oils elevate relaxation, as does soft music and optional nitrous oxide.
