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.
Past the leather sofa and the drink station equipped with coffee, water, and snacks, patients will find the treatment rooms at Fox Chapel Family Dental. In these rooms, which are equipped with 40-inch flat-screen TVs and complimentary WiFi, Doctors Dave Johnson, Mike Johnson, and Marc Johnson treat patients with a variety of general and cosmetic dental procedures. Their expertise ranges from cleaning and examining teeth to installing crowns and braces.
Dr. David Petti knows firsthand the importance of a camera-ready smile. He saw it up close from Jack Nicholson and Danny DeVito when he played a news reporter alongside the actors in the movie Hoffa. When he isn’t showing off his pearly whites on film, he’s helping others maintain healthy grins with assistance from his staff. He performs general and cosmetic dentistry on patients in need of checkups, cleanings, whitening treatments, or help finding an alternative use for clothes knit from dental floss.
For Body Beautiful's team of cosmetic experts, it’s not enough to simply treat patients’ skin, veins, or cellulite. The med-spa’s staff is also focused on helping patients understand the issues they’re facing and how they can be treated most effectively, which is why all patients begin their relationship with the spa with a personal consultation. Only then does Body Beautiful draw on its arsenal of high-tech services, including treatments that include diode-laser hair removal, tattoo removal, and fractional skin resurfacing and rejuvenation designed to minimize skin irritation. The team also uses lasers—along with peels, ultrasound facials, microdermabrasion, and other approaches—to combat acne and spider veins, and its laser toenail fungus removal helps prepare feet for warm-weather footwear. To complement its other technological techniques, Body Beautiful also offers body-contouring wraps, which relies on a mixture of radio frequency, infrared light, fillers and Botox, and massage to help defend against cellulite and assist patients in reshaping their figures.
With nearly five years of brightening experience, the professionals at Xtreme Teeth Whitening LLC understand the physical and psychological allure of brilliantly white teeth. Their light-accelerated whitening services brighten teeth in a scant 20 minutes, removing deep-set stains incurred from smoking or imbibing cups of coffee, wine, or soy sauce. The specially formulated whitening gel incurs neither sensitivity nor downtime, and a variety of products available for purchase can boost or extend results. Sessions can whiten smiles by up to eight shades, with results lasting for as long as two years with proper maintenance.
Dr. Carl Medgaus boasts more than 30 years of dental diligence using state-of-the-art technology and advanced dental techniques to care for teeth alongside his talented team. A thorough exam and x-rays analyze mashers to help identify dental flaws before a systematic scrub washes away grill grime and leaves teeth squeaky clean. After exams, a specialist takes upper and lower impressions to create a personalized take-home teeth-whitening kit. Clients fill the kit's trays with an enamel-bleaching substance, then wear the splint for 30–60 minutes once or twice a day while relaxing or catching up on household chores. Available only from dentists' offices, this at-home ritual can conjure up pearlescent teeth up to seven shades whiter. 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.
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.
