At Desert Ridge Dental, Dr. Spencer Morgan and his team join forces to keep teeth tidy—but they get a little help, too. The facility houses state-of-the-art technology, including computer-aided imaging and digital x-rays that produce 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays. DentalVibe pain-free shots diminish the discomfort of injections, and music and movies keep patients entertained so assistants don't have to split time between their duties and conducting puppet shows.
Doctor Jansen Donoghue and his experienced staff pore over mouths, searching for signs of disease or hints of trouble. During dental cleanings, a technician whisks away tartar and plaque before polishing teeth, reducing stains and residue. As part of the dental exam, a trained technician takes a radiographic image of pearly whites, which reveals bone loss, tumors, and cysts more effectively than traditional Etch-A-Sketch imaging. Next, a doctor examines the mouth for oral cancer or gum disease and monitors tusks for any signs of tooth decay. Finally, the doctor checks the sturdiness of restorations such as crowns, fillings, and permanent plastic fangs.
To maximize the mileage from every dental visit, the doctor elucidates proper brushing, flossing, and rinsing for patients. Alternatively, Chamisa Hills’s cosmetic-dentistry practices keep clients’ grins even and gleaming, with porcelain crowns, veneers, and at-home custom whitening, among other treatments.
Instead of coating teeth with an artificial whitening, the SpaWhite treatment targets and destroys unwanted stains to reveal the teeth’s natural white hue. With Power Smile’s advanced LED light igniting the customizable whitening foam strip, oral-ivories can be brightened by up to six shades in a mere 20 minutes. Most individuals with healthy teeth may have little to no discomfort, aside from a slight tingling in the gums. Those with veneers, composite fillings, or shark-teeth props from Jaws may see surface stains removed, but their base color will remain as it was when installed. Results may last from a few months to a year, depending on how often you consume staining culprits such as nicotine and coffee.
Albuquerque Teeth Whitening’s technicians help cultivate lustrous, radiant grins with the PearlBrite professional whitening system, often used by dentists. A special LED light emits rays from the blue end of the spectrum, stimulating a peroxide whitening gel into erasing discoloration. The powerful kits—all made in the United States—can beget smiles that stay up to eight shades whiter for one year, depending on each person’s oral hygiene and mud-eating habits.
A New You Wellness Spa is a haven of relaxation—private treatment rooms are dressed in earth tones and cast in low light. In this soothing atmosphere, therapists soften pained muscles and joints with therapeutic massages that can be customized with warming infrared light, trigger-point therapy, and targeted acupressure. Though massage is the center's specialty, therapists can also evict toxins with ionized foot baths or brighten chompers with LED-light and take-home teeth whitening.
