During a comprehensive dental exam at James D. Kim DDS Family Dentistry, Dr. Kim and his smile-staff x-ray face caverns to reveal any hidden fang, gum, and bone problems and then mine the mouth-stone area in search of problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, and constantly cursing tongues. After the exam, cuspid-cleaners bathe tusks in a flurry of foam and floss before Dr. Kim checks teeth one last time. Alternatively, patients who wish to brighten their mouth chiclets can opt for a take-home bleaching kit. Dr. Kim customizes the kit by taking an impression of the patient’s mouthscape. He then constructs a snug-fitting tray that holds a professional-grade whitening gel strong enough remove stains from coffee, tea, and squid-ink smoothies, rendering choppers up to eight shades whiter.

Dr. Bianco and his team of hygienists clean and maintain healthy mouths with general, restorative, and cosmetic practices. During 80-minute teeth-whitening appointments, hygienists paint individual chompers with Opalescence Boost potion, a chemically activated recipe concocted with 38% hydrogen peroxide to bleach away the evidence of habits such as drinking coffee, smoking, and quoting Sam Kinison. After technicians whitewash mouthbones, the fluoride mixed into the solution awakens to prevent roots from becoming sensitive. A thorough teeth cleaning abates the risk of mouth disease by expunging oral cavities of built-up plaque and tartar. During dental exams and x-rays, hygienists investigate the likelihood that dated dental work and decay will cause teeth to abandon gums for careers as sharp marbles.
Though the phrase "bone harvesting" may sound more at home in a science-fiction movie than a dental office, Creek View Dental Group’s experienced technicians are quick to set their patients’ minds at ease. In dentistry, they explain, bone harvesting is merely a procedure that can give a thin jaw the thickness it needs to support dental implants.
The office’s trio of dentists specializes in bone harvesting and other general, cosmetic, and restorative procedures. A friendly staff assists the dentists, diffusing any anxieties with warm smiles and gentle touch. If that’s not enough, the office offers a range of oral and IV sedation treatments that can help patients overcome their fears of pain and of their mouths being invaded by buzzing, insectoid tooth fairies.
