At Caring Family Preventive Dentistry, Lan Gegenheimer, DMD, and her team of pearly professionals employ 20 years of experience in the dental industry to help maintain patients' oral health in a small, intimate practice that prizes attentive customer care. During the cleaning, fang furbishers oust plaque, tartar, and schools of gummy fish before polishing away lingering stains. A set of x-rays reveals vital information about oral health that may not be visible to the naked eye. Dr. Gegenheimer evaluates the x-rays during a thorough examination, in which she checks the mouth for signs of tooth decay or gum disease and quizzes wisdom teeth about the philosophical postulates of Immanuel Kant.
WhiteScience Greater Kansas City imparts a bright, winsome sheen to weary teeth with the aid of the state-of-the-mouth SpaWhite Express whitening system. The process begins with the creation of a unique foam mold of your mouth, ensuring a snug, precision fit that makes it impossible for strange teeth to sneak in on the whitening action unnoticed. Next, a specially designed light reacts with the foam to combine light, heat, and pressure, effectively polishing bite bones up to six times whiter. The treatment is quick—lasting only 20 minutes—and safe, usually leaving little or no sensitivity to the enamel. For 12 hours following treatment, patients should avoid consuming anything that would easily stain a white shirt, including coffee, red sauces, dark soda, and fountain pens.
Starting with a comprehensive exam (an $83 value), one of Waters Davidson’s smile specialists will screen mouths for problems such as decay, periodontal disease, and loitering tongues carrying boom boxes.

The comprehensive checkup concludes with a mouth cleaning (an $88 value) that helps prevent future cavities, gingivitis,, and gum disease. Dr. Waters, his daughter Dr. Davidson, and their team of tooth whisperers have been in dental care for a combined 42 years, a remarkable feat considering teeth were just invented last year.
