The team at Health and Beauty Aesthetics knows how to approach just about every set of teeth with whitening that works for the individual. Among their most popular treatments are hour-long Zoom! whitening sessions performed by a dental hygienist, brightening smiles up to nine shades. The FDA-approved treatments start with painting the client's teeth with a bleaching gel and then catalyzing it with beams of LED light. Take-home whitening kits are also an option here, helping brighten smiles far more effectively than the original home whitening kit—mouthfuls of whipped cream.
Teeth appear even whiter when their backdrop is newly sun-kissed skin. With Infinity Sun spray tanning, clients avoid the sun's UV rays, which can cause skin to burn and brows to furrow permanently. A fine mist sprays the skin with bronze shades customized to each client.
At ProDental Hygiene LLC, registered dental hygienist and owner Lilia Hamblin provides a wide range of dental hygiene services without the supervision of a dentist. At this independent dental hygiene practice, her thorough cleanings gently clear away plaque and tartar from each tooth and below the gum line, preventing the bacteria from escaping into to into lungs or blood stream where it can lead to respiratory infections or hardened arteries. She can also fortify enamel from decay and sensitivity with fluoride treatments or brighten smiles with Zoom! whitening treatment. Not only does Lilia clean and whiten teeth, she also educates patients on how to best keep their smiles looking their best.
At Downtown Dental Care, Drs. Lance D. Bailey and Kirk Christianson combine their years of experience in general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry in an office with a compassion-oriented philosophy. The doctors demonstrate their commitment to patients by participating in not-for-profit dentistry as well as such charitable organizations such as UNICEF, Pride Northwest, and Donated Dentistry, a clinic that administers free dental care for patients without insurance.
The doctors also devote themselves to continually honing their craft. Dr. Bailey cares for kids through his training in pediatric dentistry and for seniors with his advanced education in dentures. His training in laser dentistry, IV sedation, and CEREC one-visit crowns keeps him on the cutting edge of the industry. Meanwhile, Dr. Christianson’s advanced skills restore smiles beyond just the teeth with hard and soft tissue grafting and sinus surgery.
The team works to keep patients comfortable during each treatment. Every patient who wanders through the door, or chews their way through the wall, gets treated as an individual. The doctors thoroughly explain each treatment in order to reduce anxiety. During treatments, patients can keep tabs on the outside world with a flat-panel television and a broad window, both situated in front of the operatory chair.
The Bridgeview Dental Associates themselves—Drs. Briles and Parks—have both traveled to Cambodia, volunteering with the Northwest Medical Team to brighten smiles halfway around the world. Here in Portland, the duo helm their own team to conduct services ranging from cosmetic procedures to specialized treatments such as Invisalign braces and professional dental implants to replace existing orange slices.
At City Dental, Dr. Jason Bajuscak and his team promise compassionate dental care and a relaxed visit. To help their patients feel confident about any works that needs to be done, they maintain open communication about each procedure to help allay fears. That's only where the team's work begins. An artillery of cosmetic treatments helps each patient achieve just the smile they want, whether through teeth-whitening systems such as KöR Whitening or teeth-straightening with Invisalign. They also repair teeth with Lumineers, which, unlike porcelain veneers, are reversible and don't require grinding or shaving of teeth. Whenever emergencies arise the team also keep their doors open for same-day emergency appointments, from broken teeth to needing a hug from a professional.
