Ron Haynes and his daughter, Jessie, have built a business from smiling faces. They don't snap yearbook photos or transform dentist gloves into balloon animals. Instead, they helm teeth-whitening shops and private office locations where smiles are brightened up to 10 shades. Since 2005, they have brightened over 50,000 smiles across five states. The locations in North Carolina and Georgia offer either convenience at their South Park Mall kiosk or privacy at their office locations. Armed with Beaming White, an FDA-approved teeth-whitening system that pairs a peroxide-based gel with a UV-free LED light, their team of technicians helps clients brighten their choppers by exposing teeth so the gel and light reach every inch of enamel. Once the light unites with the gel, coffee, tea, and grass stains begin to vanish. Teeth continue to lighten after the treatment, achieving a color that's 3-10 shades whiter over the course of 24 hours. With proper care, results can last up to 12 months, or roughly the time it takes to adapt the phonebook into a comedic opera.
Proud Palmetto State native Christopher LaTorre has honed his toothy trade at practices throughout South Carolina, earning the praise of Columbia Metropolitan magazine as one of the top area dentists in 2011. In addition to caring for adult chompers, Dr. LaTorre maintains a convivial chair-side manner with children, putting tykes at ease with magic tricks, balloon animals, and advice on scaling a lemonade stand in today's tumultuous economy. Services range from digital x-rays to implant restoration, comprehensive exams, and custom whitening.
Because Sunset Dental's staff recognizes that going to the dentist can be unpleasant for some, it has designed an office that keeps patients' comfort in mind. Massaging dental chairs and sedation dentistry help relax patients, and digital x-rays take images of teeth and roots. Above all, the staff comforts patients by listening to their concerns and complaints before attempting any general or cosmetic services.
The enamel experts at BeachBright Smiles increase the wattage of beaming grins with their signature in-office teeth-whitening treatment. In approximately 20 minutes, the partnership between peroxide gel and LED light works to break up tooth discoloration and stains caused by drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes, and eating realistic portraits of bowled fruit. Results can last up to two years with regular brushing and maintenance, and clients can also schedule teeth-whitening parties that accommodate multiple guests at a time.
Dr. Gregory Abrams, DMD, and Dr. Ron Cohen, DDS, go to great lengths to help patients maintain their healthy smiles. When not seating implants, filling cavities, or fitting teeth with braces, Dr. Cohen spends his time engaging in hundreds of hours of classes practicing new dentistry innovations. Dr. Abrams journeys from the Friendly Dental offices to underserved areas in a mobile dentistry van, giving patients access to dental care right in their own neighborhoods. Both professionals ensure their patients stay entertained during treatments by seating them in plush chairs, turning on the in-room televisions, and explaining the show’s finer plot points to teeth.
