Seasoned mouth mavericks at Hilton Head Dental enhance smiles with a mix of aesthetic and diagnostic services. Healthy mouths can get professional whitening from the comfort of their own couch or flower-strewn meadow with a take-home kit designed to lighten mashers by several shades. Those in need of tooth tending can opt for the second deal option for preventative oral health care. Beginning with a thorough exam, scrutinizing human eyes and cavity-detecting bitewing x-rays check mouthy crevices to help identify developing problems. All evaluations are held within a private treatment room equipped with visual and audio aids, so patients can relax while watching sitcom reruns or listening to a dramatic reading of a Harvard sophomore's syllabus. Those who'd like the mouth-bone benefits of both the teeth whitening and the exam can opt for the third deal option.
At Miller Dental Group, Savannah natives Dr. Robert B. Miller & Dr. Jan Cossar help patients take charge of their own dental destinies by keeping them informed about their current conditions and educated about their options for treatment. To do so accurately,the staff employs digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, keeping track of the ins and outs of each tooth, revealing the extent of decay, and probing the depth of cavities.
Once patients make an informed decision about how to proceed, Dr. Miller & Dr. Jan keep them comfortable throughout treatments such as dental implants, composite fillings, and root canals. Each treatment room contains a television to keep patients' minds occupied.
At Smile Designs by Dr. Karen Cooper, grins beam up to eight shades brighter with Zoom! whitening treatments. Clients begin treatments by reclining comfortably with warm blankets, paraffin wax, and CD selections as a short preparation covers the lips and gums. A dental tech then smothers teeth in a hydrogen-peroxide-based gel, which activates under a specific Zoom! light to break up discoloration and remove coffee, red wine, tobacco, and grass stains. The treatment requires three, 15-minute bleaching sessions, during which the client may relax, listen to music, or attempt to complete a crossword puzzle in Pig Latin.
Smile Splendor's 45- to 60-minute safe and effective teeth metamorphosis begins with an application of hydrogen-peroxide-powered gel before moving on to Smile Splendor's patented tanning bed for teeth, a gentle blue light targeting unwanted stains. The gel application and light process is repeated two more times, which increases whiteness by up to eight shades, while guests relax, read, or watch TV programs showing other people reading. For coffee drinkers or people who dive on grass fields with their mouth open, a quick draw with Smile Splendor's touch-up whitening pen will help you maintain the results of your whitening treatment.
Oak Park Dental Group has restored smiles for more than 36 years, and the office currently consists of a friendly staff and three doctors—general dentists Drs. Jan Cossar and Adrienne Wimbrow, as well as periodontist Dr. Ali Mehraban—who combine their varying specialties to cover the entire dental spectrum. Though emphasizing different areas of dentistry, such as cosmetic, periodontal, and family dentistry, the three doctors share a comprehensive approach to dentistry, considering both the function and aesthetic appearance of each individual tooth. The dentists' use of Cerec crowns, which are stronger than traditional crowns but appear natural, demonstrates their commitment to working with advanced technology to improve both the health and look of teeth. This advanced equipment is housed in an office that swells with elegance. In the lobby, dark hardwood floors run beneath leather furniture, and soothing yellow walls are relieved by broad windows that overlook a lush, green lawn.
After working as a massage therapist for years in South Carolina and Utah, Kelleigh Jones-Coles used her in-the-field experiences and training in reiki, acupressure, and medical massage to open Terasu Wellness Studio. Kelleigh pampers clients with services ranging from massages to facials to body wraps. Named after the Japanese word for "illuminate," the spa features candles whose flickering flames shine light as clients relax or recite haikus in pig Latin.
