Teeth have long been important to humans, allowing us to break down food, threaten prey, and bite our dates' fingernails during horror movies. Protect your pearly whites with today's Groupon: for $1,899, you get dental-implant surgery, abutment, and an all-porcelain crown at Cornerstone Dentistry (a $4,500 value). Redeem this Groupon at the Irvine or Palm Desert location.
The highly trained dental team at Cornerstone Dentistry couples FDA-approved technology with years of experience to fill in the gaps of healthy smiles. Before the one-hour procedure begins, the doctor meets with patients to discuss what the treatment will entail, to answer any questions, and to reassure them that the knee bone is not connected to the jawbone. Preprocedure x-rays or a CT scan then help to paint an accurate picture of oral-bone health. During the surgery, the doctor inserts an FDA-approved MIS implant that acts as the root of the tooth, followed by a stabilizing abutment at the top of the implant to hold the crown in place. Finally, the doctor attaches a durable all-porcelain Emax crown, which appears natural alongside real teeth by studying and mimicking their behavior.
Cornerstone Dentistry's office swells with elegance, with floral arrangements and large paintings adding vibrancy to muted, soothing sherbet-colored walls and ornate furniture and rugs. Patients waiting to treat their bite bones may relax on the plush lobby couch, daydreaming about a smile pretty enough to attract double takes from a toolbox full of spirit levels.
For the team of dentists at Cornerstone Dentistry, cosmetic dentistry is about more than just good looks. So although he leaves mouths looking impeccable with implants, full-mouth reconstructions, and rhinestone-bedazzled canines, he never loses sight of the primary concern of any procedure—ensuring healthy relationships between the jaws, teeth, and facial muscles.
With an approach described in Palm Springs Life as "concierge health care," Cornerstone Denistry sees far fewer patients than the typical dentist or armchair psychiatrist, giving each patient greater attention. The dentists find they can maintain a higher standard of work with these longer appointment times while also building a friendly rapport with their patients. The dental group plans to open a third location in Glendale this June.
