A member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the Aesthetic Dental Center of Rhode Island’s Dr. Candida Castillo buffs incisors to a shimmering sheen, restoring smiles to their wonted glory. Dr. Castillo explores the crannies and crowns of each ivory mouth stone before peering into invisible nooks and undert the gum line with a panoramic x-ray. Then a dental doyen scrubs away food particles, plaque, and any remaining tooth graffiti, and performs an oral cancer screening and TMJ evaluation.
During the initial 15-minute appointment for bleach qualification, Dr. Castillo preens pearly whites and lets patients ask questions, express concerns, and sing favorite radio jingles. At the following whitening appointment, a technician covers gums and lips, then lacquers eager chompers with Zoom! whitening gel. Headphones jump onto ears to play tunes during the one-hour procedure, in which light rays ally with the gel to overthrow the stains made by merlot-based toothpaste, with teeth emerging up to eight shades brighter.
