Soraya Acevedo, DDS and her team at Acevedo Dental Group know that using the most technologically advanced treatments often enhance patient comfort and convenience. As a member of the Academy of Laser Dentistry, she seeks out the latest industry innovations, including laser gum-disease treatments that avoid the use of shots and drills. In the Laser WPT process, Nd:Yag and Er:Yag energy removes the diseased gum lining, increases the body's healing response, and erases calculus problems or other scribblings from the root surface. Dr. Acevedo also quickly restores teeth with same-day crowns and straightens smiles with clear, removable Invisalign aligners.
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.
Florman Orthodontics’ husband-wife orthodontist team have straightened more than 1,300 chomper sets via Invisalign and other aligner methods, earning them an Elite Preferred ranking from Invisalign in recognition of their exceptional depth of experience. The Invisalign process 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 walnut crackers into perfect alignment.

At Preferred Dental Spa, tooth whisperers apply a specialty Zoom! gel onto chompers, which then bathe in focused, intense light in three 15-minute cycles. The 45-minute service causes minimal discomfort, if any, and brightens teeth up to eight shades more efficiently than holding a flashlight between teeth. Zoom! reports that with careful upkeep, results can last for years.
The team at West Coast Dental want to keep patients comfortable during visits. Virtually every aspect of the office reflects this, from the soothing colors to the kid friendly section of the office. The office layout further sets visitors at ease by emphasizing privacy. Apart from treatment rooms, designated consultation areas allow you to talk with the dentist at length and not shy away from the tough questions such as, "Do these braces make me look short?"
The clinic is also dedicated to staying up-to-date on the latest dental equipment. Staff members use low-radiation digital x-rays, and some locations are equipped with chair-side oral scanning, which employs digital imagery to ensure restorations fit securely.
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 four 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.
