Dr. Timothy Sluser and company practice a holistic philosophy that melds maintenance, aesthetics, and comfort to create and maintain attractive, healthy smiles. Along with general dentistry services such as fillings, bridges, and orthodontics, the smile surgeons at all three locations perform cosmetic procedures such as implanting lifelike porcelain veneers, reshaping teeth for finer facial contours, and installing oral black lights for a brighter shine. The father of four young sons himself, Dr. Sluser keeps abreast of the latest advancements in pediatric dentistry, and does everything in his power to ensure nervous children enjoy a stress-free visit.
With so many recent advancements in the field of dentistry, there's no longer a compelling reason to avoid the dentist. This is especially true if your local office is The Dentistry, where dental professionals offer patients a range of general or restorative services. Before performing services, the team determines whether a sedation option might be necessary by administering a brief anxiety test, in order to ensure that patients stay comfortable during treatment.
Drawing from more than 10 years of dental experience, Dr. Alvaro Lazo emphasizes gentle dentistry aided by advanced technology. Before performing dental services such as root canals, extractions, or cleaning, technicians reveal inner-mouth workings with digital radiography, which reduces the radiation exposure of traditional radiographs by up to 90%. Laser cavity detection and treatment seek out and stop tooth decay without the use of drills that can inadvertently tap into a tooth's precious oil reserves.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. A full exam, including x-rays and photos 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. 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. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Invisalign aligns teeth with a series of clear, removable trays made to fit each client's mouth structure. To prepare teeth for the see-through straightening, an experienced dentist conducts an initial Invisalign exam, checking the strength and health of teeth without playing a "Guess Your Tooth Strength and Health" carnival game. The canine consultation includes a set of x-rays and impressions to determine the severity of spacing and alignment issues. Those choosing to proceed with the mouth-formatting service are fitted for the Invisalign removable trays and are given a $1,000 discount off the total cost of the service (usually around $3,500–$6,000).
Dr. Parker, a fellow of the World Congress of Microdentistry with more than 30 years of experience, grants confidence to smiles with a Sapphire whitening treatment designed to lighten fangs up to 10 shades over the course of one office visit. During the procedure, which lasts up to 90 minutes, a seasoned technician lacquers choppers with a peroxide-based Sapphire gel that gently melts away stains caused by coffee, tobacco use, and permanent-marker-chewing habits. If necessary, they'll shine the beams of a Sapphire light on slathered tusks to enhance the gel's whitening power. This gentle procedure, unlike incisor tanning beds, does not rely on any harmful UV rays, yielding results that may last for up to a few years when followed up with proper oral care.
