Voted for Best Dental by the Daily Press Choice Awards, City Center Dental Care fashions sparkling bright smiles with their professional whitening services. Beginning with a consultation, the experienced Dr. Bill Griffin and his team of dental dynamos check teeth thoroughly to ensure they can achieve maximum luminescence from the whitening process and haven’t been accused of biting local politicians. Mouth owners can then relax while the friendly specialists start the Opalescence Boost Whitening treatment, its lightening formula fortified with fluoride and potassium nitrate to help fight cavities and strengthen enamel. The evaluation and whitening process takes about two hours, after which customers will receive their custom-fit, take-home whitening trays, which help prolong sparkling smiles for page-a-day calendar shoots or power outages.
Dr. Rodney McDaniel, Yorktown Dental Care's chief tooth tender, has been fending off dental difficulties with comprehensive examinations and advanced treatments for more than three decades. Aided by his associate, Dr. Irina Novak, Dr. McDaniel surveys mouthscapes for cavities, gum disease, or picture-worthy landmarks to capture with intra-oral cameras and digital x-rays. Custom teeth-whitening kits restore shine to smiles, and meticulous hygienists keep mouth diamonds gleaming with regular cleanings and custom-designed preventative maintenance plans. While tooth tenders dote over smiles, patients relax with headphones, pillows, and heated wraps, and enjoy complimentary coffee and snacks in the waiting room. To straighten up unruly food grinders, Dr. McDaniel also continually educates himself on orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign, which steadily and stealthily shifts teeth until they're straighter than an arrow under a steamroller.
At James A. Burden, D.D.S. & Associates, comfort and care pave the road to healthy smiles. Here, more than 20 staffers welcome patients with warm personalities and homey accoutrements such as televisions, toys, and a children's stool shaped like an oversized tooth. A duo of dentists—Drs. Burden and Maharty—performs the full gamut of services, from checkups and cleanings to cosmetic treatments such as Invisalign and custom-made veneers. Armed with advanced training in dental implants, Dr. Burden fills mouth gaps with sturdy, natural-looking prosthetic teeth rather than marshmallows shaped like vampire fangs. The dentists also ease patient anxiety with either laughing gas or a pill that produces a mild, conscious sedation, and accommodate busy-bees with early morning and evening appointment slots.
Living up to its name, the physician-supervised Skin Renaissance Clinic gives skin a new lease on life with a full slate of laser and facial treatments. A registered nurse wields Matrix IR technology to blast wrinkles, and slough away imperfections with microdermabrasion and chemical peels. They cull from Obagi and SkinMedica products to lavish faces with anti-aging serums, tapping into the skin’s self-healing and homework-deflecting properties.
Experienced family and cosmetic dentists, Dr. Hooper and Dr. Martin of the Gentle Dental Center work with their friendly staff to address individual patients’ needs and to consult with clients about preventive care. A sprawling list of routine and cosmetic services mollifies maws and keeps gums singing from the moment jaws first swing open for examination. During the exam enameled surfaces are gently probed so plaque pros can identify and diagnose potential issues. Mouths shed unwelcome tartar during the cleaning, which leaves sparkling teeth in its fastidious wake, and a fortifying dose of fluoride helps strengthen enamel, bolstering its defense against tooth decay. A thorough set of x-rays snaps panoramic glamour shots that provide multiple perspectives on back and front chompers. Clients desiring a brighter smile recline to commission a personalized mouth mold and then take the resulting custom trays home to fill them with stain-busting potion and whiten up in the comfort of their own bathroom.
Dr. Michael Folck calls upon his 25-year career in cosmetic dentistry to expertly renovate smiles and keep clients whistling healthy tunes through their shiny, well-aligned teeth. His sedation dentistry keeps patients comfortable, and his laser-dentistry treatments bring teeth back to brilliance in tandem with maintenance services such as fillings, gum reductions, and whitening treatments. The office rounds out its advanced technology set with digital x-rays, which provide a crisp perspective and emit significantly less radiation than traditional beams or the unmarked barrels that catalyze most superheroes' beginnings.
