At Ideal Dentistry, Drs. Christian W. Hahn and Dr. Gill specialize in cosmetic dentistry. Both doctors dedicate themselves to performing handcrafted cosmetic techniques that imbue refurbished smiles with a natural and realistic appearance. When patients arrive, they're escorted to a private consultation room to meet with one of the doctors and discuss their desired results. After a "quick-look" exam and a few digital photographs, the doctor will help the patient determine which dental tests and treatments should follow on their next visit.
The doctors demonstrate their compassion for patients and commitment to health by using safe, advanced dental technology. They also use safe and aesthetically pleasing compounds such as white composite and porcelain. So dedicated is Dr. Hahn to the use of natural ingredients in dentistry, he is the founder and president of Dr. Hahn’s Naturals, which exists for the sole purpose of replacing harmful chemicals with natural dental products. In addition, technologies such as digital x-rays spare patients the radiation exposure and anachronistic lectures of traditional x-ray equipment.
At Advanced Dental Center, dentist Rachel Talis and her team keep smiles healthy and beautiful. Dr. Talis graduated from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry, and went on to complete advanced training in areas such as cosmetic dentistry, advanced restorative options, and the treatment of gum disease. She also performs Boost teeth-whitening sessions that erase stains from smoking, drinking coffee, or mistaking a fountain pen for black licorice.
As Forest Springs Family Dental enters its second decade of life, Dr. Misty Waldeck-Griffin continues to build the clinic's legacy amid the columns and arches of a neoclassical office. Curving granite countertops and tiled glass walls cultivate the openness of a Roman forum, and wooden floors ground the office in the 21st century. Tucked away in treatment rooms, massaging dental chairs hum as Dr. Waldeck-Griffin walks patients through services from digital x-rays to teeth whitening and wireless braces.
Sporting more than 35 years of mouth-makeover experience, Dr. S. Gregory Benanti and his skilled staff at Family Dental Associates revamp worn, misshapen, or chipped teeth with custom-made porcelain veneers. During the first of three appointments, patients’ bodies melt into soft pillows and blankets in 1 of 13 state-of-the-art treatment rooms as the doctor examines oral areas, takes x-rays, and tailors a treatment plan to meet client needs and Tooth Fairy tax codes. At the next visit, doctors prep teeth for their porcelain outerwear by shaving off a thin layer of enamel before fitting smile fences with temporary overlays. During the patient’s third visit, staff members adjust custom teeth shields for size and color and cement them in place, bonding permanent veneers to teeth as tightly as close siblings constructed from Legos.
With a focus on preventative health care, Generations Family Dentistry maintains mouthy mashers while fashioning sparkling smiles with teeth-whitening services. During a thorough exam, teeth are checked for cavities and other ailments with both keen human eyes and the keener eyes of an x-ray, capable of detecting mouth miscreants hiding beneath gum lines and invisibility cloaks. After that, Dr. Greenwell starts the Zoom! whitening process by applying a lightening gel containing hydrogen peroxide that’s then activated with a special light and readings from an ancient tome. In the roughly 45-minute process, the gel penetrates the teeth to break up stains, potentially leaving teeth gleaming up to eight shades brighter while erasing “Wash Me” signs left by mischievous tonsils.
