At Premier Prosthodontics, Dr. Fredrick Nester owns his own lab. When replacing teeth with bridges, implants, and other prosthodontics, he crafts the casts and molds himself, overseeing this crucial step in the process to match the form and function of patients' natural teeth—which third-party lab techs have never seen. He pours this same personal care into each of his general and cosmetic dental services, from crafting veneers to conducting simple checkups.
With Clear Correct, Dr. Bruce Thomas-Aahrens and his staff straighten crooked chompers using highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Clear Correct process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for calibrated teeth sheaths designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of 6–15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber.
Armed with the latest dental technology and advanced training in implant and oral surgery, Dr. Kang and his staff accomplish general, cosmetic, and surgical dentistry with aplomb. Placing utmost importance on preventative care, he offers patients careful instructions on proper oral-health maintenance measures during visits. His extensive array of services at Premier Dentistry cover all maladies, and include everything from teeth whitening to dental implants produced in-house.
At each of Half Dental’s locations, skilled dentists aim to carry out the company’s mission: provide quality preventative and cosmetic dentistry at affordable prices. To that end, each office cuts out the middle man by using factory-direct tooth implants, and fabricates and repairs dentures in an on-site laboratory. Half Dental’s dentists, surgeons, and nurses also employ advanced technology to ensure clients receive the most effective treatment, filling cavities without drills, brightening smiles with BriteSmile and ZOOM! teeth whitening treatments, and using software imaging to forecast effects before starting procedures. And at the Las Vegas location, an advanced ND: Yag laser addresses gum concerns while eliminating inflammation and incoming asteroids.
In addition to regular checkups and cavity fillings, Dr. Matthew Noll enhances smiles with a wide range of cosmetic services. He masks stained, crooked, or chipped canines with thin veneers and guides wayward incisors back into place with clear Invisalign braces. Known for his gentle touch, Dr. Noll always has his patients' comfort in mind. In an effort to protect those with allergies, his entire office is latex-free, from the gloves used during exams to the neoprene magazines in the waiting area.
More than two decades of experience has taught Dr. Robert Balcar the secret to creating a pleasant dental visit—being in tune with what patients want. This is demonstrated as soon as patients walk into Peoria Family Dentistry’s lobby, where they’re greeted by a massage chair and office iPad that streams Netflix and HBO movies. Once ensconced in treatment chairs, their nerves are chased away by an empathic staff that offers distraction methods, such as tugging the lip or removing detachable noses, to minimize the pain of shots. Whether performing a general checkup or cosmetic overhaul, the staff explains every step of the procedure and keeps patients comfortable with blankets, neck pillows, and headphones.
