At Malki Dental, Dr. Stephen J. Malki straightens teeth with the advanced metal-free technology of Invisalign. The Invisalign process eschews 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 without brackets, bands, or a scared straight dentist visit. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of 12–18 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners need only be removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or chewing on rocks. For more information, check out the Invisalign FAQs here.
Drs. Wendy Xue and Jung Kim believe that good dental habits should start at a young age. At their practice, they help kids foment those skills during fun, non-threatening visits. During appointments, Washington Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics' team takes care to avoid scary clinical terms such as "needle," "drill," and "plaque that feeds on nightmares," getting kids comfortable with the idea of dental hygiene at the same time. After exams and cleaning, hygienists reinforce lessons, discussing healthy brushing, flossing, and eating habits that kids can practice at home.
At Bergen Center for Advanced Dentistry, Drs. Nicholas Bochi and Edward Olsen help clients enhance appearances with Zoom! whitening treatments. Lips and gums are shielded before the Zoom! light activates the whitening power of a hydrogen peroxide–infused gel that blankets teeth. As clients relax or listen to music during the three 15-minute applications, the stain-fighting duo penetrates the teeth, using brute strength to lift discoloration caused by smoking, drinking sodas and red wine, and sucking the color out of rainbows. Though results vary, clients may leave with a smile that is up to eight shades brighter.

But they also understand the value of cosmetic services, offering Zoom teeth whitening and injectables such as Botox and Restalyn. Whether patients seek a basic checkup or want that just-flossed glow, they relax under the care of specialists dedicated to being gentle and thorough.
