At Helotes Family Dentistry, Dr. José Brigman wants to keep patients comfortable during treatments. When patients need a stronger distraction than the flat-screen TVs that are in every room, the staff provides electronic movie glasses and headphones during cleanings, fillings, and teeth-whitening treatments. The team also offers conscious sedation to especially anxious patients, which lets them stay alert and responsive while easing pretreatment jitters.

The expansive beauty haven is also home to talented aestheticians, massage therapists, nail technicians, and professional makeup artists.
Throughout the staff-decorated space, music creates a relaxing and inviting ambiance. At each of the three locations, a boutique area showcases purses, shoes, and ballroom gowns—must-haves for a beauty pageant or an evening spent convincing people you’re a Norwegian princess.
Dr. Kyle Ash believes that no smile should be hidden. He fixes cracked, chipped, and missing teeth with a variety of techniques, including bridges and custom veneers, and uses a whitening treatment that scrubs from the surface of teeth stains caused by consuming too much wine or crayons. Patients with healthy teeth need only to show up for routine checkups, which include oral cancer screenings?a test he feels strongly about. When not tinkering away on teeth at his practice, Dr. Ash serves on a board of medical professionals that meets weekly to discuss treatment plans for patients with oral, head, and neck cancers.
As one of the premier teeth whitening lounges in the region, I Heart White Teeth tasks itself with keeping teeth gleaming white with its proprietary teeth-whitening system in a serene atmosphere. The peroxide gel works its magic over the course of two 20-minute sessions, each extracting a progressively deeper set of stains and remnants from layer cakes. Aside from its whitening properties, the gel boasts a mineral-rich formula that fortifies dental enamel.
Eschewing the chilly touch of robo-hygienists, Cosmetic Dental Associates employs an all-human staff of expertly trained dental assistants, ensuring patients are spared from splashes of motor oil and binary prattle while they're being pampered with professional, toothsome TLC.

Additionally, this deal includes a comprehensive teeth whitening consultation and oral exam ($70), and a full set of x-rays ($102).
Drs. Jose Brigman and Marco Ruiz of Emerald Crossing Family Dentistry would rather prevent than repair dental problems. That's why they conduct examinations with an intraoral camera. This small device snaps digital shots of teeth from all angles, allowing up-close views of decay that the naked eye would miss. When repairs are necessary, they use modern materials and techniques, such as tooth-colored composite fillings and porcelain crowns, to restore the tooth's appearance and function. In addition, they offer cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics.
