Dr. Hema Patel, a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, headlines Smile Plus Dentistry’s grin-cleansing gang who stem the tide of tooth decay, plaque, and tartar buildup through comprehensive dental care. The comprehensive checkup begins with a visual exam that scans chatterboxes for noticeable wear, troublesome tooth craters, and Charleston Chew accumulation (a $70 value). A set of x-rays allows Dr. Patel to gaze deeper inside teeth to unveil the appearance of cavities or the progress of decay (a $90 value), and a cleaning (a $116 value) polishes away any dental detritus so that each gumstone shines like the top of Mr. Clean’s head. The enamel enlightenment can be continued at home with a whitening kit, which brightens teeth with trays and bleaching gel that can be worn while sleeping or during the day (a $150 value).
