During more than 25 years in practice, Dr. Robert Denny has been fixing up worn-out smiles while gaining experience in most every niche of dentistry along the way. Upon graduating from the University of Texas, Dr. Denny received a scholarship to study at the highly respected University of Pennsylvania School of Dentistry. After serving in the Navy Dental Corps during Vietnam and completing a stint as an dental instructor in Illinois, Dr. Denny returned to Denver, where he has been in private practice ever since. Since opening his first office in 1984, the former president of the Metropolitan Denver Dental Society has grown his practice to two different locations. He's also expanded his service menu to encompass treatments that range from general dentistry and cosmetic care to orthodontics.
The tech-savvy engineers behind DaVinci Teeth Whitening brighten smiles by activating a special lamp that works in tandem with a whitening solution made fresh every week in an American lab. All of DaVinci's treatments work to rid teeth of lackluster hues, clingy stains, and embarrassing love letters to dentists without weakening tooth enamel.
At Orchard Cosmetic & Family Dental, Dr. Jason Whiting, DMD and Dr. Sujin Yi, DDS practice general, cosmetic, and surgical dentistry. They use the latest technology, including digital x-rays that reduce exposure to radiation. Digitization also allows them to craft crowns unique to each patient, and lasers help locate cavities more efficiently. With these tools, as well as a gentle approach, the dentists attend to all oral health concerns, from gum disease to dental implants to wisdom-teeth extractions.
Drs. Stuart and David Bennett can see the future. Whereas most dentists look into patients’ current dental states, the father-and-son team at Bennett Signature Dentistry uses advanced equipment to both read and help direct patients’ dental destinies. Diagnodent can detect cavities a full year ahead of traditional x-rays, and computer bite analysis measures tooth positioning and helps guide corrective treatments with digital modeling.
One might expect such technology inside a cold, sterile environment, such as a hospital or an android couple’s honeymoon suite. Although Bennett’s graphite hues and stainless-steel fixtures do reflect a commitment to modernity, the clinic also contains an array of anxiety-soothing comforts. Complimentary food and drinks emerge from the countertops of the kitchen, and patrons sink into comfortable fireside chairs. In each operatory, massaging dental chairs work to knead out tension, and flat-panel televisions in front of patients stream Netflix movies and shows.
The cold, blue lights that shine inside Screamin’ White Teeth’s office are not for decoration. Each one emits a wavelength of exactly 465 nanometers—the most effective wavelength for activating the hydrogen-peroxide gel used to whiten teeth. The trained staff slathers teeth in this gel during 15-minute whitening sessions, performing up to three consecutive treatments to reveal the most noticeable results. Previous patients have seen teeth lighten more than eight shades after a triple appointment. The whitening formula used at Screamin’ White Teeth is both safe and effective on natural teeth, as well as veneers, caps, crowns, and dentures made with Chiclets.
While practicing dentistry over the past two decades, Semi Condoianis, DDS has seen dental technologies come and go, but one thing has remained consistent—her commitment to patient comfort . She and her team at Dentistry 360 perform services, such as fillings and root canals , with laser technology, often eliminating the need for painful drilling and shots. They also remove decay with electric hand pieces and minimize discomfort by delivering anesthesia by computer rather than stork. For fillings, Dr. Condoianis uses a mercury-free, photomimetic composite to match the color of the restored tooth.
