After several years as a clinical chemist, Richard Amstadter decided he would rather treat patients than work in a lab. So he enrolled at the University of San Francisco School of Dentistry, the first stop on a path that culminated in his own Modesto practice. His services—personalized for every patient—range from routine dental-hygiene checkups to fitting mouths with crowns, veneers, and Invisalign braces. To ensure comfort every step of the way, he relies on tools such as digital X-ray machines and CAD/CAM technology, which swiftly manufactures crowns so patients needn’t schedule multiple visits or erect a campsite in the waiting room.
A member of five prestigious dental associations, Dr. Scott Winter renovates mouths with state-of-the-art technology turning yellow, stained teeth sparkling white. The dedicated doctor of dentistry whips up custom-made mouth guards that fit teeth precisely, ensuring rogue canines can’t escape from the stain obliterating clutches of the whitening agent. Patients receive an ADA-approved peroxide gel to coax the yellow from teeth in case your coffee-baited mousetrap fails. Chompers may be revamped with whitening gels intended for use twice a day for two weeks or for overnight use for one to two weeks. Whitening may leave teeth a bit sensitive for a short period of time, but sensitivity should fade after the treatment ends.
Dedicated to high-quality family and cosmetic orthodontics, Dr. Jeremy West designs and executes dazzling reasons to smile. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia, eschewing cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute 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 your natural walnut-cracking tools into perfect alignment. While the total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer ($2,000–$8,000), this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward the final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Dr. Maulik Shah isn’t just a dentist, but an artist. Since 2002, he has created beautiful smiles for his patients with veneers, whitening treatments, and Invisalign clear braces. But his office oversees more than the visible twinkles that appear at the corners of his patients’ grins. He also ensures lifelong dental functionality with general and restorative dental treatments. Sealants keep hidden food from wreaking havoc inside teeth’s nethermost nooks, and Six Month Smiles braces safely shift teeth to healthier positions with controlled, efficient pressure while their tooth-colored exteriors keep them hidden. He also gives damaged teeth second chances with restoration services such as root canals, tooth-colored fillings, and crowns. Understanding the value of continuing education, Dr. Shah stays on top of emerging dental technologies and trends to always bring his patients the best current treatment options available.
While many children and teens spend time deciding what they want to be when they grow up, Dr. Jeffrey Rice knew immediately. His father and grandfather were both dentists, and today he continues the lineage in an office that practices the full range of dentistry. He partners with three other dentists to form a qualified quartet that combines their specialties in implantology, endodontics, and cosmetic dentistry to restore the appearance, structure, and function of teeth.
The team emphasizes high-quality dentistry, and they demonstrate that commitment with treatments that are designed to last a long time. Their dental implants can look like and function as natural teeth for up to 20 years, thanks to their independence from neighboring teeth and the US Constitution’s lack of term limits for teeth. They also treat clients with amalgam and gold fillings that keep teeth chewing for more than 20 years, and their composite resin fillings give tooth holes 10-year reprieves while blending in with the rest of the tooth.
El Dorado Dental’s door leads straight to an adventurous world of cosmetic and general tooth care performed by experienced dentists Dr. Adamos and Dr. Byun and their skilled mouth-maintenance staffers. During the one-hour appointment, a dentist probes and taps each pearly mouthbone to check for damage and disease during gentle dental exams, and four bitewing x-rays expose hidden cracks, cavities, and loose change. A professional teeth cleaning concludes office visits, blasting away tartar, calculus, and plaque, and the take-home whitening kit extends enamel benefits when applied at the smiler's post-treatment discretion.
At Hayashi Dental Group, Drs. Randall T. Hayashi and Mikoyan M. Lagrimas believe oral health doesn’t stop at the mouth—it can impact the entire body. This observance of a mouth-body philosophy leaves them aware that plaque on the teeth can lead to clogged arteries in the heart. So it’s no wonder that the doctors emphasize preventative dentistry, such as oral-cancer screening and cleanings, before beautifying smiles with porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, or dental implants.
