At Preferred Dental Spa, tooth whisperers apply a specialty Zoom! gel onto chompers, which then bathe in focused, intense light for three 15-minute cycles. The 45-minute service causes minimal discomfort, if any, and brightens nutcrackers up to eight shades with more efficiency than holding a flashlight between the teeth. Zoom! reports that with careful upkeep, results can last for years.
Florman Orthodontics' husband-and-wife team of orthodontists has straightened more than 1,500 chomper sets via Invisalign and other methods, earning the doctors an Elite Preferred ranking from Invisalign in recognition of their exceptional depth of experience. The Invisalign process straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. Invisalign patients can eschew cumbersome braces in favor of clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute comprehensive exam includes x-rays, photos, a facial analysis, and an orthodontic radiograph, which combine for a more detailed and precise diagnosis. The impressions of the patient's mouth terrain pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment.

Garnering a Best of LA nomination, Joel Gould, DDS, and the crew of trained fang fixers at Wilshire Smiles turn up smiles' shine wattage with Zoom! teeth-whitening treatments. Clients can kick back in comfortable dental chairs as Dr. Gould inspects mouth caverns during the exam, which determines if ivory furnishings can be brightened safely. Once given a thumbs-up approval, gums, lips, and tongues head for cover while teeth are polished with a hydrogen-peroxide-based gel. A specialized light then cascades across the dentalscape during three 15-minute sessions, blasting away stain-written history notes to leave pearly whites up to eight shades brighter. Wilshire recommends guests bring iPods or books to stay entertained during the one-hour service, and resist the urge to sip red wine, gnaw tobacco, or poke squids until they ink for a few days following treatments.
