At Miller Dental Group, Savannah natives Dr. Robert B. Miller & Dr. Jan Cossar help patients take charge of their own dental destinies by keeping them informed about their current conditions and educated about their options for treatment. To do so accurately,the staff employs digital x-rays and intraoral cameras, keeping track of the ins and outs of each tooth, revealing the extent of decay, and probing the depth of cavities.
Once patients make an informed decision about how to proceed, Dr. Miller & Dr. Jan keep them comfortable throughout treatments such as dental implants, composite fillings, and root canals. Each treatment room contains a television to keep patients' minds occupied.
At Smile Designs by Dr. Karen Cooper, grins beam up to eight shades brighter with Zoom! whitening treatments. Clients begin treatments by reclining comfortably with warm blankets, paraffin wax, and CD selections as a short preparation covers the lips and gums. A dental tech then smothers teeth in a hydrogen-peroxide-based gel, which activates under a specific Zoom! light to break up discoloration and remove coffee, red wine, tobacco, and grass stains. The treatment requires three, 15-minute bleaching sessions, during which the client may relax, listen to music, or attempt to complete a crossword puzzle in Pig Latin.
Oak Park Dental Group has restored smiles for more than 36 years, and the office currently consists of a friendly staff and three doctors—general dentists Drs. Jan Cossar and Adrienne Wimbrow, as well as periodontist Dr. Ali Mehraban—who combine their varying specialties to cover the entire dental spectrum. Though emphasizing different areas of dentistry, such as cosmetic, periodontal, and family dentistry, the three doctors share a comprehensive approach to dentistry, considering both the function and aesthetic appearance of each individual tooth. The dentists' use of Cerec crowns, which are stronger than traditional crowns but appear natural, demonstrates their commitment to working with advanced technology to improve both the health and look of teeth. This advanced equipment is housed in an office that swells with elegance. In the lobby, dark hardwood floors run beneath leather furniture, and soothing yellow walls are relieved by broad windows that overlook a lush, green lawn.
Dentists Matthew Rosenthal and William Gates want to give their patients the confidence to smile in photos. To do so, they prevent oral-health issues with exams and x-rays, and repair what they find with a selection of treatments such as fillings, implants, and crowns. Rosenthal Dental Group provides dental care to patients of all ages, except for that velociraptor skull you found in your backyard.
When it comes to the color white, the trained specialists at Sparklen White Teeth don’t see every shade alike. During in-office treatments, they use an LED light to transform teeth between two and eight shades whiter. Each procedure causes little to no discomfort, and, if patients follow their practitioner’s aftercare suggestions, results can last for years.
Nestled in a scenic spot southeast of Sea Pines Circle, Distinctive Dentistry has kept Hilton Head chompers in tip-top shape for the past 25 years. Dr. Shelley Irving Murphy helms the practice, complementing preventative care with cosmetic treatments. As a certified Invisalign provider, she equips patients with translucent aligners that gradually shift teeth into a single-file line. She consults with patients and works alongside hygienists inside sunlit rooms that overlook trees and nature. Meanwhile, in the facility's spacious waiting room, a stone waterfall greets visitors and serves as a comforting reminder to gargle lucky pennies before each dental checkup.
