Board-certified orthodontist Vijay Bhagia has built a practice at Space Center Orthodontics that harnesses the latest digital technologies to correct patients' smiles. He uses cone-beam 3-D diagnostic imaging to capture detailed panoramic views of oral anatomy, such as bones, airways and sinuses, and rows of extra shark teeth. Once the terrain has been mapped out, the doctor helps to straighten misalignments in teeth and jaws. He and his staff fit adults or children with corrective equipment such as metal or clear braces, Invisalign aligners, and TMJ mouth guards. The practice also puts an emphasis on patient comfort and enjoyment by outfitting the office with a slew of amenities. Its waiting room entertains patients in line for the dental chair with both Wii and PlayStation systems along with children's movies and fly-through visits by balloon geese. The office staff sews delight into mature crowds with a selection of intriguing books, news and entertainment magazines, and in-house ice cream to calm sweet-tooth cravings.

Family dentist Dr. Tom Watkins, who received his advanced training in dentistry while serving in the US Air Force, divides his time between fostering greater grins and teaching at the University of Texas Dental School. Dr. Alejandro Cavazos, previously a science teacher, employs his extensive experience in implants and oral surgery to provide a high level of care for his patients. Together, they helm W Dental Group, realigning teeth with ClearCorrect orthodontics and replenishing smiles by implanting dental prostheses or pieces of corn soldered in gold. During exams, W Dental Group's staff snaps candid shots of teeth with x-rays to better assess overall dental health and identify any existing issues, then stores the photos in an electronic database, alongside clinical photographs and impressions, for future visits. They also assuage anxiety with sedation dentistry, helping patients to relax with nitrous oxide, IV sedation, or stories about a very calm whale learning to read. The office makes time for philanthropic pursuits—the team recently participated in San Antonio's Smiles for Hope, an annual event for families unable to afford dental care or insurance, and Dr. Watkins regularly travels to Central and South America to deliver dental care to those without access to it.

Dr. Michael Caparas and his associates at each of the seven Metroplex Dental Care locations perform services using advanced technology, such as digital x-rays that release up to 90% less radiation and intraoral cameras. The doctors recommend a "sensible oral-health regimen," which includes regular dental exams, cleanings, and oral-cancer screenings. They help to repair existing maladies with restorative procedures such as root-canal therapy, and makeover smiles with veneers and whitening treatments. For sound sleep, the doctors fit apnea appliances and snore guards, ensuring that patients will no longer wake family members or lure a herd of migrating kazoos into the bedroom. Whatever the service, the doctors put patients at ease with their soothing chairside manner and variety of sedation options.

After Robert B. Meiser, DDS retired from dentistry, Dr. Jayashree Kyatam took over Austin Primary Dental, renovating the space by adding state-of-the-art equipment, fixtures, and furniture. It's all part of her plan to create a warm, welcoming environment where patients can expect the latest in industry techniques. Dr. Kyatam graduated from the Boston University's Goldman School of Dental Medicine, then visited and fell in love with the city of Austin in 2005. She has since attended numerous continuing-education courses to further hone her skills, becoming an expert in treatments such as the Six Month Smiles braces system and shot- and drill-free Lumineers. Always considering her patients' comfort and convenience, Dr. Kyatam offers early-morning and lunchtime appointments and is committed to a same-day dental-emergency policy. Her treatment rooms are illuminated by an abundance of natural light and a chairside television, which allows guests to show off their healthy smiles by pretending to answer news anchors' interview questions. While at the office, patients can also inquire about Austin Primary Dental's flexible payment options and financing for those who qualify.

Floss Dental's dentists and surgeons, many of whom are often featured on local TV stations, may specialize in preventative care, but they also beautify mouths with cosmetic- and reconstructive-surgery services, such as veneers, Invisalign, and dental implants. They harness panoramic x-rays to get a complete view of the teeth, and they broadcast these pictures on a TV, which helps them explain which treatments are necessary and to point out which tooth would look best with an inlaid diamond chip. Floss Dental encourages patients to keep coming back by offering free Invisalign consultations and free Boost whitening once a year to those who maintain their regular cleanings. Flat-screen TVs and satellite radio entertain patients during their procedures, and sedation dentistry keeps them free from anxiety in a dream-like state.

At the medically oriented Ambiance Family Dentistry & Orthodontics, formerly Ambiance Dental Spa, Doctor Wilma Luquis-Aponte buffs smiles and ensures overall oral health. Before exploring mouth caves, Luquis-Aponte explains the steps she will take toward imbuing teeth with more robust health and offers an opportunity to ask questions and advice on proper nicknames for molars. During 45–60 minutes of toothy hygiene, dental doyens will check chompers for plaque and signs of gum disease (a $74 value), thoroughly clean pearly whites with the assistance of watermelon fluoride (a $127 value for adults, a $107 value for children 12 and under), and scan above and below the gum line with a set of x-rays, searching for signs of decay or hidden vampire fangs (a $204 value). While waiting for their appointment, mouth holders can sip on a coffee or tea, watch TV, or read a magazine.
