Orthodontia has come a long way from the crude metal bands and catgut used in some of the earliest teeth-straightening systems, and the team at Dentalville fully takes advantage of modern technology. Beyond traditional braces, the doctors straighten teeth with both fixed and removable appliances. Three types of clear braces, such as Invisalign and Essix, adjust teeth while remaining virtually invisible. Similarly, Incognito braces hide on the back of the teeth, straightening them without cutting your lips while you smile or head butt a wall. Patients whose orthodontia has to show itself can expedite the process by up to 40% with SureSmile and up to four times with Wilckodontics braces.
Going to a dental office where you're treated like a mere number can be a dispiriting experience. City Dental Centers founders Dr. Mike and Dr. Sam set out to foster the opposite atmosphere at his clinics, bringing a caring, personal touch to underserved neighborhoods. At all three of City Dental Centers' locations, the cheerful staffers help keep mouths healthy and comely, offering a full slate of services that range from basic cleanings to tooth-replacing implants. The friendly environs also ease appointments for kids, who might be scared of having a dentist clean their teeth or find their uvula.
At Citadel Dental Group, Drs. Vincent Spero and Farrah Koutchek keep teeth in mint condition with services that range from preventative cleanings to dental implants. Thorough examinations and low-radiation digital x-rays reveal the condition of teeth before treatments. Patients may opt for conscious IV sedation, which increases comfort while keeping patients conscious and in control.
Dr. Hossein Jahangiri has gained a deep knowledge of cosmetic dentistry, implants, and intravenous conscious sedation through hundreds of hours of continuing education, in addition to his dental training at USC. But Dr. Jahangiri's background isn't the only draw to Southern California Family Dentistry, his Whittier dental office. With his crack team of dentists—Dr. Le and Dr. Hakham—Dr. Jahangiri beautifies smiles with advanced cosmetic and preventative dentistry services, ranging from teeth cleaning and fluoride treatments to gum grafting, porcelain veneers, and dental crowns fit for King Toothy. But before any treatment is performed, the dentists examine each smile, looking for cavities and gum diseases, and thoroughly explains to clients each potential service option.
California Dental Group’s trained staffers specialize in areas ranging from cosmetic dentistry to orthodontia, and attend continuing-education sessions to ensure that their tooth-wrangling skills stay up-to-date. Preventive-care experts show patients how to practice good cleaning habits at home and avoid losing any teeth that could be cashed in with adult tooth fairies for a handful of state-lottery tickets.
Dreamwork's couch-studded office may look ordinary and comfy at first glance, but it is actually so far advanced into the realms of spic and span that it verges on alien. The dental equipment uses filtered water, ensuring that you'll experience not just a hygienic environment but that you'll be able to rinse and spit with class. Doctor Dreamwork himself, Steven Lee, will gently peer deep into your mouth for signs of trouble, take pictures of your teeth for the office yearbook, and address any concerns, pains, or existential ennui before degunking your charming chompers of caked-on spinach and bird nests.
