Along with a team of experienced hygienists and assistants, Drs. Terrance Mahoney and Daniel Klauer keep patients of all ages grinning with general and cosmetic dental treatments that emphasize patient care. They believe it is important for patients to make informed decisions, which is why their website proffers advice and information through a newsletter, a blog, and videos that demonstrate how to properly brush or whittle a stick into a toothpick. Drs. Mahoney and Klauer’s care extends to their community through Give Kids a Smile and Dentistry From The Heart. The dentists also donate services to a local clinic, as well as make trips to Haiti and other impoverished countries to help underserved patients and wind-up novelty teeth.
Experienced family and cosmetic dentists, Dr. Hooper and Dr. Martin of the Gentle Dental Center work with their friendly staff to address individual patients’ needs and to consult with clients about preventive care. A sprawling list of routine and cosmetic services mollifies maws and keeps gums singing from the moment jaws first swing open for examination. During the exam enameled surfaces are gently probed so plaque pros can identify and diagnose potential issues. Mouths shed unwelcome tartar during the cleaning, which leaves sparkling teeth in its fastidious wake, and a fortifying dose of fluoride helps strengthen enamel, bolstering its defense against tooth decay. A thorough set of x-rays snaps panoramic glamour shots that provide multiple perspectives on back and front chompers. Clients desiring a brighter smile recline to commission a personalized mouth mold and then take the resulting custom trays home to fill them with stain-busting potion and whiten up in the comfort of their own bathroom.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. The process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain ($325), will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $3,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.

Dr. Kapers and the staff at Creating Smiles, PC believe that a visit to the dentist doesn't have to be scary or painful. Their modern dental equipment is less invasive and gentler than the stereotypical tools. Both offices are equipped with digital x-rays that minimize radiation exposure. Intraoral cameras show patients what's going on inside their mouths, and full sedation is an option for patients who don't want to think about having a mouth at all. Dr. Kapers' surgical techniques are also gentler; air abrasion cleans cavities of decaying enamel without the sound and vibration of the drill.
With a history stretching back nearly 30 years, Tan City of Valpo prides itself on its well-trained team. Techs assist guests with all their needs, from choosing between UV and spray tanning to picking the best lotion and accelerator, and their clean bronzing studio offers a variety of each. Besides imbuing skin with golden hues, they also provide teeth whitening, using their own Maxx White system.
Specializing in cosmetic and corrective dentistry, Lindenwoods Dental's courteous staff burnishes lustrous smiles with an emphasis on pain management. Before the whitening treatment, teeth submit to a limited oral exam to gauge overall health and reorganize molars that have swapped places. A sedation dentistry consultation sifts through the patient's medical history and past dental experiences to determine which form of anesthetic they may be eligible. Sink into one of the office's Tempur-Pedic chair mattresses as a hygienist spreads a whitening solution across your teeth and distracts restless senses with a movie or paraffin waxing during the 30-minute treatment. The Boost! system illuminates grins up to four shades and can last up to five years if properly maintained with regular brushing, flossing, and a diet based around clear food groups. A gentle formula reduces post-whitening sensitivity, though patrons may still experience some vulnerability to pain.
