With more than 15 years of experience as a family and cosmetic dentist, Scott S. Peters, DDS, brightens smiles with effective tooth-whitening treatments. When clients arrive for the first appointment, dental specialists take impressions of their teeth. Patients pick up their trays at the next appointment, along with two syringes of professional-strength whitening gel. When clients bite into their gel-filled trays for the directed amount of time, bleaching agents target enamel stains obtained by chewing crayons, drinking wine, or chugging coffee. Once patients have followed all of Dr. Peters' instructions, they can look at their reflections in the mirror and admire the whiteness of their friendly smiles or intimidation growls.
With hundreds of locations across the country, Right Dental Group represents a collection of oral-healthcare professionals who deliver a variety of quality dental services. The collective places an emphasis on relationship building—meaning patients can confess their most egregious toffee-apple trespasses while receiving a teeth scrubbing delivered with precision and understanding. Each of the dentists is prescreened for a consistent record of excellence and the ability to efficiently locate a cavity in a toothstack. A skilled doctor and staff will skillfully probe forgotten mouth corners, eradicating tartar and expunging plaque from bacterial lairs. The included x-rays will help uncover any oral problem areas that cannot be seen with the shamelessly naked eye. After treatment, clients will be privy to tips that explain the proper brushing and flossing techniques to ward off gum disease and tooth loss, ensuring tongue-stoppers remain firmly rooted to the rest of the skeletal system.
Dr. Gary J. Braunstein has spent the past three decades helping his patients achieve the smiles they've always wanted. Dental technology has advanced by leaps and bounds during that time, but Dr. Braunstein has remained at the forefront of his field. Splitting his time between Encinitas Dental Care and Carlsbad Dental Care, he oversees a staff that excels in general family dentistry as well as cosmetic treatments such as Invisalign, which either straightens teeth or makes them invisible. Other advanced services include a Zoom! whitening treatment that brightens teeth in just one visit and a PerioProtect treatment that offers a non-surgical remedy for gum disease.
One moment, Dr. Coleman was standing tall on the lake’s water, balancing on wooden skis as water splayed behind him like a rooster tail. The next moment, he crashed headfirst into the water, cracking his front teeth on the way down. It wasn’t until four years later that Dr. Coleman regained his smile, an experience that left him yearning to study dentistry.
Now at the helm of Coleman Dentistry, Dr. Coleman works hard to pass on that feeling of being able to grin with confidence in a comfortable environment. Slight bubbling sounds drift from a hanging fountain in the waiting room, inducing daydreams of faraway lagoons or scuba divers singing Frank Sinatra. During appointments, patients sink into a heated massage chair, swaddle themselves in warm blankets, or watch flat-screen TVs inside the treatment room. Other perks include dark sunglasses, earplugs, and afternoon wines to cap off clean bills of dental health.
