Redbud Dental was founded in answer to the chain clinics that endorse a one-size-fits-all approach to dentistry. The doctors focus on maintaining a conversation with each patient and coming up with a nickname for each tooth. They educate patients on treatment options based on their expertise in implants, cosmetic dentistry, and endodontics. This collaborative approach fosters a long-term relationship with patients, who can visit the dentists without fear that they are orthodontists wearing dentist masks.
At Easy Dental Solutions, a dedicated Spanish-speaking staff helps engineer quality, sterling smiles through detailed examinations and modern technology dental solutions. A triumvirate of talented doctors scans teeth for signs of wear and tear while hygienist steer patients towards a mouth-friendly diet free of candy, caffeine, and Sharpies. The office helps align and correct smiles through dental surgery, crowns, and implants while also brightening teeth through 60-minute Zoom whitening treatments.
Dr. Stephen Buchanan, DDS, and his professional staff straighten and whiten crooked or stained chompers in a cozy, earth-toned office. The Invisalign 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 mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift incisors into perfect alignment. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 18 or as many as 30 separate aligners need to be worn and removed only when eating, brushing, flossing, or discussing politics during a period of 9–15 months to achieve best results. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer; it can run anywhere from $3,500 to $8,000. This Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost.
Zoom! Whitening treatments use a combination of whitening gel and specially designed lights to send vagabond stains and splotches packing, leaving teeth up to eight shades lighter with one 45-minute session. Following a brief dental exam to determine if customers' teeth will benefit from the whitening, a technician will then apply the light-activated gel and blast away discoloration with the special Zoom! lamp. Each Zoom! session is broken up into three 15-minute whitening applications, after which patients receive a custom take-home whitening tray to keep shining fluoride for home application, and ancient magical incantations for healthy bicuspids.
Unlike its main competitor, Dentistry by Accident, Dentistry by Design starts your check-up with an initial diagnostic ($100) that includes x-rays ($125), which uncover any decaying specters that might be tapping, as of someone gently rapping, rapping at your enameled chamber's doors. Next, one of the D by D’s team of dentists and hygienists will give your gnashers a professional power wash that blasts away tartar, plaque, and light staining far more gently than gargling with a fire hose ($75). Your oral health adventure can continue at home, as you'll also receive a set of whitening trays ($200) custom-molded to match your very own mouthstones, as well as a supply of home bleaching gel to bring out your inner beauty through the blindingly white glare of ultra-pearly teeth.
Crossroads Family Dentistry keeps teeth gleaming by custom fitting take-home whitening kits to patients' mouths. The road to pearly perfection starts with an initial consultation, which helps the dentist decide the best course of whitening action. A dental x-ray then determines if your teeth have sprained their little ankles. Finally, the dentist takes impressions of teeth and makes a set of trays, which fit over chompers like U-shaped gloves in order to hold in place the specially formulated whitening gel. Patients take home the trays and gel, and they can wear them for several hours a day at their leisure—typically while sleeping or going about housework. Like ordering a pizza from a restaurant called Godot's, tooth whitening takes patience, with results typically seen after two or three weeks.
