No matter which dental professional you visit, your chompers will receive a meticulous cleaning that gives the heave-ho to any tartar and plaque buildup, clearing the way for future generations of meal remnants. During the exam, pearly whites will be checked for signs of trouble such as broken fillings, cavities, and hibernating elves. X-rays reveal any problems the naked eye can’t behold or that hid during the exam because they preferred not to behold a naked eye. The whole process will leave you with the shining grin of an open-mouthed walk through an automated car wash, but with less exposure on the local news.
At Mission Dental, dentists Vincent Spero and Farrah Koutchek work to improve the health and appearance of teeth and gums. They peek inside teeth using low-radiation digital x-rays before performing services that range from routine cleanings to root canals. Patients also can opt for cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening or Invisalign braces, and can request sedation dentistry to ensure a comfortable experience.
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.

An LA native, Dr. Jack Von Bulow and his skilled support team attend to teeth in a serene spa-like environment replete with fountains and atria. Customers may choose a 90-minute chomper checkup, which kicks off with a thorough plaque scouring under the deft hands of an oral hygienist and the luminous gaze of a staff lamp. Once the tooth technician can see his or her reflection in cleaned teeth, an examination will highlight any oral afflictions, which x-rays may help to enumerate and clarify. During the procedure, customers may avail themselves of a paraffin-wax hand treatment and mentally escape from the dental proceedings with a virtual-reality-style film experience.
