At Afdent, Dr. Roger Pecina and his smile staff ensure the long-term health of dental dandies with thorough exams utilizing digital technology, oral-surgery options, and cosmetic-dentistry services. During a comprehensive exam, a dentist checks teeth for cavities and stashed lollipops, as well as treats mouthbones to digital x-rays and full cleanings. The 90-minute Zoom! whitening treatment lightens teeth up to nine shades with a simple application of whitening gel and a special light, leaving enamel deposits a gleaming alabaster for up to six months. Though prices for other dental services vary widely based on factors such as tooth condition, oral health, materials used, and gum line-real-estate rates, the price for a single dental filling starts at $130, and Afdent offers free initial consultations and payment plans.
