At Lake Forest Dental, Ltd., experienced cosmetic dentist Dr. Steve Ballis turns teeth 7–10 shades brighter with Zoom! teeth-whitening treatments. Patients begin the roughly 90-minute session by reclining in leather chairs as their lips and gums receive a protective cover, leaving only the teeth and their sordid secrets exposed. Zoom! whitening gel then smothers mouth bones and works specifically with the Zoom! light to penetrate enamel and remove stains and discoloration. During the hour-long bleaching, clients may watch TV, attempt to interpret the Voynich manuscript, or listen to music.
At the offices of Dental on 45, no detail pertaining to patient comfort has been overlooked. Distilled, bottled water hydrates guests in lieu of tap water to prevent potential contamination and a modern sterilization system further impedes the spread of germs. The greatest comfort, however, comes from the bedside manners of the two doctors, who use their many years of experience to strengthen smiles with porcelain veneers, full porcelain crowns, Invisalign braces, and an in-office power whitening system. Along with their general and cosmetic dentistry, the duo also treat conditions such as gum disease, implant dentistry, and root canal treatments, referring patients to dependable outside specialists as necessary.
