The multi-lingual staff at Dr. Dental, a family-run practice, strives to shatter orthodontic stereotypes by tidying up tusks in an unintimidating office sporting the ambience of a friendly neighborhood establishment. Return choppers to a glowing state with a new-patient cleaning, a procedure that polishes pearly whites and analyzes teeth’s deep-seated fear of falling out and being exiled by a fairy. After a deep cleaning, the non-judgmental dentist administers bitewing x-rays to inspect for toothy ailments and lays out a long-term treatment plan for molar maintenance. Many locations offer after-hours and weekend appointment times for patients who are busy with work, family, or animal husbandry.
Specializing solely in whitening smiles, the technicians of Express Teeth Whitening Center help fade blemishes on teeth, allowing patrons to smile with confidence, whether it's for that job interview or presentation, or to just feel more at ease, all without the hassle of a dental-office visit. For teeth-whitening treatments, a technician will assess the type of treatment that will work best for the client by using a mouth tray with either 36% or 44% carbamide peroxide gel or a cheek retractor with 16% hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. After that, the technician will provide the client with protective glasses and activate the stain-zapping power with a blue light. The combination whitens teeth two to seven shades and produces immediate results, unlike going back in time to un-drink a year's worth of cups of coffee.
