Stains, discoloration, and yellowing fade from careworn chompers during in-office LumiBrite and Zoom! treatments, brightening smiles up to seven or eight shades. To kick off one of three Zoom! sessions, a technician applies a layer of whitening gel to exposed grins, then shines a specially designed UV light to kick through residues of coffee, tea, and invisible ink. In a 30-minute LumiBrite session, a 35% hydrogen peroxide solution forms oxygen bubbles to scrub teeth’s microscopic pores, foaming away stains in a 30-minute session under a sapphire plasma arc light. Both treatments are overseen by Lincolnway Dental Center’s Dr. Young Kim, a 20-year veteran of anticavity combat, and several highly experienced ceiling lights.
Scott Morris DDS & Associates preserves chomper health with a fusion of time-tested dental training and the advantages of whiz-bang technology. Each 75-minute visit commences with a comprehensive examination, as technicians snoop around incisors and comb through oral histories in search of cavities, oral cancers, or jawbreakers masquerading as molars. After dotting eyeteeth and crossing tusks, technicians snap intra-oral pictures of ivories with environmentally friendly digital x-ray technology, detailing tooth health while reducing patient exposure to radiation. Finally, a hygienist painstakingly cleans teeth in a whirlwind of flossing and polishing, banishing plaque and bacteria back to their cruddy stomping grounds.

Once clients are comfortably ensconced in the dentist's chair, the oral exam begins. The resident toothsperts will check each individual incisor, cuspid, bicuspid, and molar for chips, cracks, staining, and loitering Minnesota Twins, ensuring that enamel bones are sound for biting, and gums and soft tissues will be inspected for any signs of periodontal disease. The x-ray battery exposes the roots and inner sanctums of oral stalagmites to reveal any soft spots, problem areas, or cavities. When your mouth checks out as mammalian and your teeth are cleared for takeoff, the professional teeth cleaning begins. An expert cleaning removes all the buildup and surface staining that regular brushing and flossing can't—hardened tartar, hard-to-reach plaque, and bacterial graffiti along the gum line.
