At Dr. Jiwon Jeff Jung's office, clients can relax before appointments in a luxuriously outfitted reception area. Kids can keep themselves occupied with toys and games as adults enjoy beverages from the coffee kiosk. Dr. Jung's passion for emerging dental technologies and techniques—he takes continuing-education classes—means that he can ensure current, comfortable procedures for his patients, whether they're seeking general, surgical, or cosmetic dentistry services, including implants and Invisalign. For extra-jittery patients, minimal conscious sedation and laughing gas are also available.
In 2011, 5280 magazine named Dr. Colin Gibson one of Denver’s top dentists. Given the breadth of Dr. Gibson’s orthodontic services, this may come as no surprise to his patients. In addition to fitting kids, teens, and adults with traditional braces, he offers subtler options, such as clear ceramic braces, for patients who are sensitive about their developing smiles. He also straightens teeth with a series of nearly invisible clear plastic aligners from Invisalign and ClearCorrect. For patients who are concerned about the duration of orthodontic treatments, Dr. Gibson offers rapid orthodontic techniques such as short-term braces, which boast a higher mouth-adjusting success rate than taunting Mike Tyson.
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.
At Advanced Dental Arts, Dr. Randy Simon wants to know each patient "as a person, not a set of teeth." Inside his office, warm lighting and comfortable chairs dispel patients' worries about a cold, clinical atmosphere full of ghosts holding tiny mirrors. Over the past two decades, Dr. Simon has developed his own dental philosophy he believes in listening closely during every patient's visit, keeping up to date by studying dental literature and attending continuing-education classes, and creating dentist-patient relationships that last for years.
Using a combination of whitening gel and FDA-approved blue accelerating lights, the DaVinci teeth-whitening system can leave teeth an average of up to 14 shades whiter. During office visit, the signature whitening solution?an organic plant- and mineral-based gel?is applied to chompers. A specially designed LED laser light is used with the food-grade hydrogen-peroxide gel to lift lingering stains. Once the tonal transformation is complete, clients may walk away with the graffiti of tobacco, wine, coffee, and age erased from the highway overpasses of their smiles.
