The Transparent Smiles practice is more like a hip salon than a dentist's office, with smart TVs, iPads with music and games, and massage chairs to keep patients comfortable during treatments. Friendly staff members apply organic, mineral-based DaVinci whitening gel to teeth before activating it with a laser. The process is safe for existing dental work, strengthens enamel while removing stains, and lightens teeth up to eight shades on average.
The cold, blue lights that shine inside Screamin’ White Teeth’s office are not for decoration. Each one emits a wavelength of exactly 465 nanometers—the most effective wavelength for activating the hydrogen-peroxide gel used to whiten teeth. The trained staff slathers teeth in this gel during 15-minute whitening sessions, performing up to three consecutive treatments to reveal the most noticeable results. Previous patients have seen teeth lighten more than eight shades after a triple appointment. The whitening formula used at Screamin’ White Teeth is both safe and effective on natural teeth, as well as veneers, caps, crowns, and dentures made with Chiclets.
During more than 25 years in practice, Dr. Robert Denny has been fixing up worn-out smiles while gaining experience in most every niche of dentistry along the way. Upon graduating from the University of Texas, Dr. Denny received a scholarship to study at the highly respected University of Pennsylvania School of Dentistry. After serving in the Navy Dental Corps during Vietnam and completing a stint as an dental instructor in Illinois, Dr. Denny returned to Denver, where he has been in private practice ever since. Since opening his first office in 1984, the former president of the Metropolitan Denver Dental Society has grown his practice to two different locations. He's also expanded his service menu to encompass treatments that range from general dentistry and cosmetic care to orthodontics.
Run by Drs. Mark, Ben, and Rena Mollner, Mollner Dentistry is truly a family affair. Originally founded by Mark, the practice opened a new location in Denver with his son, Ben, and daughter-in-law, Rena, newly married and ready to practice their craft. In addition to a family name, the three also share a love of cutting-edge technology and have equipped their space with dental tools such as LED-topped drills and CAD/CAM porcelain-crown technology, and patient comforts including flat-screen monitors. Together, they have worked on more than 500 successful Invisalign cases.
As patients recline in comfortable leather chairs, they pass pretreatment minutes peering out of full-wall windows that look out at a sprawling mountain landscape. In the midst of this open atmosphere, the trio of dentists stays busy, performing tasks ranging from basic tooth maintenance including fillings and crowns to beautifying treatments such as cosmetic bleaching and veneers. They’re also equipped to deal with oral trauma or damage, and can complete root-canal therapy, oral surgery, and fracture repair onsite.
With hundreds of locations across the country, Right Dental Group represents a collection of oral-healthcare professionals who deliver a variety of quality dental services. The collective places an emphasis on relationship building—meaning patients can confess their most egregious toffee-apple trespasses while receiving a teeth scrubbing delivered with precision and understanding. Each of the dentists is prescreened for a consistent record of excellence and the ability to efficiently locate a cavity in a toothstack. A skilled doctor and staff will skillfully probe forgotten mouth corners, eradicating tartar and expunging plaque from bacterial lairs. The included x-rays will help uncover any oral problem areas that cannot be seen with the shamelessly naked eye. After treatment, clients will be privy to tips that explain the proper brushing and flossing techniques to ward off gum disease and tooth loss, ensuring tongue-stoppers remain firmly rooted to the rest of the skeletal system.
Drs. Stuart and David Bennett can see the future. Whereas most dentists look into patients’ current dental states, the father-and-son team at Bennett Signature Dentistry uses advanced equipment to both read and help direct patients’ dental destinies. Diagnodent can detect cavities a full year ahead of traditional x-rays, and computer bite analysis measures tooth positioning and helps guide corrective treatments with digital modeling.
One might expect such technology inside a cold, sterile environment, such as a hospital or an android couple’s honeymoon suite. Although Bennett’s graphite hues and stainless-steel fixtures do reflect a commitment to modernity, the clinic also contains an array of anxiety-soothing comforts. Complimentary food and drinks emerge from the countertops of the kitchen, and patrons sink into comfortable fireside chairs. In each operatory, massaging dental chairs work to knead out tension, and flat-panel televisions in front of patients stream Netflix movies and shows.
