At SEDA Dental, Drs. Kenneth D. Rubinstein and Alexander I. Wang head a team of implant specialists, periodontic surgeons, and dentists at six locations. The team combines their individual skills in general, family, and restorative dental services to beautify and maintain smiles. Their patient-oriented philosophy is evident in their free consultations and x-rays for those without insurance and in the offices’ arsenal of advanced dental techniques. Porcelain veneers gussy up damaged or discolored teeth, and mercury-free fillings fill enamel holes without the toxicity of metal amalgams or recently chopped wood.
After receiving his doctor of dental medicine degree, Dr. Diego Azar turned his attention to dental implants. He sought training on the subject and ultimately started to specialize in replacing missing teeth. The procedure is one of many restorative and cosmetic dentistry services that he and his staff perform, along with whitening teeth, pinkening gums, and inserting inlays, crowns, and veneers made from enamel-colored porcelain, plus Invisalign treatments.
The highly trained dental do-gooders at Taylor Orthodontics investigate inconsistencies in oral architecture and meticulously fashion mouths with a variety of state-of-the-art orthodontic technologies. An initial exam, including panoramic and cephalometric x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The Invisalign process ($2,000–$8,000) eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. Incognito braces implement computer-aided design technology and robotic wire bending to shape 100% customizable brackets, form-fitted and placed behind the teeth, and traditional metal, colored, and clear-ceramic braces strive to straighten out teeth with their traditional tough love.
Just because it's an old adage doesn't make it any less true: an ounce of prevention really is worth a pound of cure. Just ask the doctors at each American Dental of Florida location. At their practices, they avoid using the term "disease care." It's not because they don't know the ins and outs of tooth decay and periodontal disease; rather, they simply prefer to focus more on nipping possible problems in the bud instead of going through invasive treatments to fix their eventual aftermath. During regular exams and cleanings, they teach their patients how to clean, floss, and properly brush. They also point out habits to avoid—like consuming too much sugar, which is basically tooth enamel's evil twin. Of course, sometimes they still spot a cavity or other tooth trouble spot. Luckily, these dentists attend regular lectures and conventions that cover the latest techniques for procedures such as root canals and dental implants. They're also masters of cosmetic procedures as well, from single veneers to complete mouth restorations.
After graduating from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Robert Stanton, DMD returned to his native Florida determined to bring patients the most advanced technology. Stanton is certified as an educator in computer-designed dentistry and lectures on the subject across the country. He creates single-visit crowns and centimeter-high porcelain dolls using computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) systems, including the CEREC Acquisition Center and E4D technology. The dentist also beautifies smiles with veneers and Invisalign treatments.
As a specialist in cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Stanton is able to give back to people in need in his community. According to a news story on CBS4, the doctor works with an organization called Neighbors 4 Neighbors and recently performed a pro bono full-mouth reconstruction for a woman in pain.
The treatment begins with a consultation, which fulfills one of two yearly pilgrimages to the dentist's chair. Friendly dental specialists immortalize bites through x-rays before commencing the Beaming White teeth-whitening treatment. After painting newly cleaned chompers with a hydrogen peroxide gel, a cool blue LED lamp beams whitening waves onto sullied teeth enamel, rendering smiles bright enough to keep a deer standing still while you hang old computer mice from his antlers. The whitening treatment can take up to 90 minutes. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.
