It wasn't enough for Dr. Paulo A. Sarria to earn two degrees as a doctor of dental medicine. Ever the overachiever, the bilingual denstist garnered honors in the field of prosthodontics and hones his skills by attending continuing-education courses in several fields of dentistry each year.
On any given day, however, Dr. Sarria is most likely to be found at Innovation Dental, where he and his staff put this expertise to use within a pristine, monochromatic office. In private rooms, they administer classic and advanced services ranging from cosmetic fillings to Invisalign treatments.
The walls at Mini Mouths Dentistry For Kids pop with color. As kids recline in the dentist's chair, they can gaze at cartoon characters painted on the walls, including friendly monsters and toothsome sharks. On a child's first visit, one of the staff members escorts him or her on a tour of the office, so the child will become familiar with the tools used during procedures. Television screens play movies during treatments, and afterward, children are rewarded with a toy, making each visit from beginning to end easier than having to eat carrots for breakfast.
Glimmering wall decor greets patients as they enter the small, friendly practice where Dr. Harry Panahi, DMD, and his staff brighten bites with Zoom whitening treatments. During each 90-minute session, they use a hydrogen-peroxide gel to target stains caused by wine, coffee, tea, and mistaking paintballs for gumballs. While patients watch television or listen to music, they shine the specialized Zoom lamp on tarnished teeth, activating the whitening gel to lighten tusks up to eight shades. Some patients experience extra sensitivity for a short time after the procedure; using an anti-sensitivity toothpaste beforehand can lesson this discomfort.
All Care Dental's team of dentists specializes in what they call "smile makeovers." These makeovers could involve veneers and lumineers that even out teeth or laser whitening treatments that remove stains caused by gargling with coffee grounds. No matter what the treatment, they aim to make patients?especially kids?feel safe and comfortable.
Dr. Knecht oversees a team of teeth technicians who keep chatter-factories in shipshape through a variety of cosmetic dental procedures. During the one-hour Opalescence Boost whitening treatment, Dr. Knecht slathers gumstones in a special gel with enamel-brightening ingredients designed to break up stains caused by drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes, or chewing on a giant Magic Marker. A healthy dose of fluoride minimizes any desensitizing effects to complete the whitening treatment.
