Like Batman and Batwoman, Dr. Dave Mlnarik and Dr. Paige Miller have an arch nemesis. Their Joker, however, is dental disease, which they combat through their shared practice, Shadow Ridge Dental. Thorough exams, their first line of defense, screen for oral cancer and gum disease, evaluate tooth decay, and assess existing dental work. The exams also complement regular cleanings, digital x-rays, and sealant, keeping patients? teeth healthy more effectively than braces made of spinach.
Should disease strike, the dentists nip it in the bud with treatments ranging from root canals to tooth-colored fillings that blend seamlessly into smiles. They can also resolve more superficial issues, whitening teeth in-office and covering chips with veneers. A steady stream of continuing-education seminars lends each treatment a modern touch without forcing the doctor to administer dental work in the trunk of a hybrid.
At SmileLabs, the staff is focused on one thing: whitening teeth. To lift stains and discolorations caused by drinking coffee, sipping colas, and chewing crayons, they fill custom silicone mouth trays with a peroxide-based whitening gel, which is water-based to prevent tooth sensitivity. Once teeth have been coated in the gel, they aim their Millennium SL LED lamp at the teeth to accelerate the whitening process. Each treatment takes about 15 minutes, and clients can double up treatments during a single visit.
Dentists Christina Chiang, Derek Fender, Sharon Lintzmann, Brian Newell, David Verbik, and Dean Dewispalare combine their years of experience and detailed training to expertly fight tooth decay and disease at four Omaha locations. The specialists keep pearly whites strong enough to strike fear into the hearts of carrots everywhere with dental services, such as thorough cleanings, root canals, wisdom-teeth extractions, and laser whitening.
At three locations, Omaha Family Dental's dentists and staff work to keep teeth sparkling clean and in the prime of health. In thorough exams, dentists pore over enamel to identify signs of disease and use x-rays to search for deep-rooted problems. Cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening and the creation of clear Invisalign retainers are also available.
At Worthy Dental, Dr. Justin Jones has corralled a team of dental assistants and hygienists who fight tooth decay while keeping patient comfort at the forefront of every preventive, restorative, and cosmetic procedure. Whether they're restoring smiles with implants, veneers, or in-office whitening treatments, Dr. Jones and his assistant Michele consult closely with patients to ensure they're feeling as comfortable as possible, going so far as to coo sweet lullabies or scat in whalesong if that's what it takes to keep nerves at ease. Resident hygienist Janet, meanwhile, handles all teeth-cleaning operations with computer-like precision, educating patients on proper dental hygiene as she scours her way from tooth to tooth to quickly eliminate dislodged plaque and yesterday's foodstuffs. Finally, receptionist Kathleen completes the cavity-fighting foursome, taking up post at the front desk to welcome visitors with a smile and help to create custom financial plans that fit their needs.
Using all-natural gels and fully customized tooth trays, Pro Smile Teeth Whitening brings professional-caliber dental treatments to homes across the country. After molding the kit to their own teeth?a process that takes just over a minute?customers fill the tray with gel and start their smile-brightening journey. Enhanced with an optional LED treatment, the whole procedure takes about 30 to 60 minutes a day for 7 to 14 days, and results last up to six months with regular brushing. The trays retain their shape permanently, so unless customers lose them or sprout a set of tusks, they can repeat the whitening process as often as necessary by ordering gel refills.
