At Smart Dental Rialto, Dr. Marcelo Toledo leads his friendly team with more than 20 years of experience. During each of those years, he stayed up to date on emergent techniques through continuing-education courses, which had an emphasis in implant dentistry and cosmetics. He has accrued so much expertise, in fact, that he imparts it on future dentists; for nearly a decade he?s been a professor at Loma Linda University.
University of Southern California grad Dr. Armound Mahmoudi brings more than 15 years of dentistry experience to every tooth he polishes and every cavity he boards up. He and his team offer both routine and cosmetic care, including digital x-rays and composite fillings, as well as teeth whitening and porcelain veneers.
Dental hygienists at SouthWest Dental unite more than 20 years of experience to safeguarded smiles with comprehensive exams and bleaching services. During an initial assessment ($68), a dental expert thoroughly inspects and x-rays ($110) teeth to glean a clear sense of their condition and determine their value on the tooth-fairy stock market. Next, a thorough scrub-down and polishing ($85) ensures a silken-smooth grin. Patients continue oral ablutions in the comfort of their homes with a bleaching kit ($199) composed of trays and a tube of whitening solution. Chompers luxuriate in trays for 30 minutes at a time, allowing clients to kick back as bleaching agents battle stains from coffee, wine, and Rorschach blots.
For the team of dentists at Cornerstone Dentistry, cosmetic dentistry is about more than just good looks. So although he leaves mouths looking impeccable with implants, full-mouth reconstructions, and rhinestone-bedazzled canines, he never loses sight of the primary concern of any procedure?ensuring healthy relationships between the jaws, teeth, and facial muscles.
With an approach described in Palm Springs Life as "concierge health care," Cornerstone Denistry sees far fewer patients than the typical dentist or armchair psychiatrist, giving each patient greater attention. The dentists find they can maintain a higher standard of work with these longer appointment times while also building a friendly rapport with their patients. The dental group plans to open a third location in Glendale this June.
Dr. Craig Wright channels 25 years of experience into his practice with help from his amiable staff as he offers his focused attention to each patient. Clients who opt for Invisalign receive a custom-made series of aligners made with smooth, comfortable plastic, which maintains its transparent form by existing partly in another dimension. Wearing the aligners gradually and gently shifts teeth into place without metal brackets or tight wires. Dental specialists create new aligners every two weeks until smiles are straightened while wearers confidently conceal their tusk-straightening secret from the outside world.
At Preferred Dental Spa, tooth whisperers apply a specialty Zoom! gel onto chompers, which then bathe in focused, intense light in three 15-minute cycles. The 45-minute service causes minimal discomfort, if any, and brightens teeth up to eight shades more efficiently than holding a flashlight between teeth. Zoom! reports that with careful upkeep, results can last for years.
