Yellow teeth indicate an addiction to smoking cigarettes, drinking coffee, or swishing with butter. I can't believe it's not toothpaste with today's Groupon: for $125, you get a Boost, Whiter Image, or Zoom! teeth-whitening treatment at Hornbrook Center for Dentistry in La Mesa (a $550 value). The staff at Hornbrook Center for Dentistry will select the whitening treatment based on what will work best for each patient.
At Hornbrook Center for Dentistry, Dr. Hornbrook and his staff give clients stainless smiles after deciding which of three available whitening treatments to apply. Opalescence Boost uses a chemically activated gel, eliminating the need for a special light or for the patient to chomp on a glow stick. Whiter Image employs pre-filled gel trays and an LED light to lighten teeth in 30 minutes, and Zoom! renders smiles brighter in three successive 15-minute sessions. Patients can catch up on important news and cartoons on the hanging television during each procedure or make small talk with the technician by moving their eyebrows in Morse code.
While waiting for an appointment, patients can sip on juice available at the coffee bar or snack on freshly baked chocolate-chip cookies. Following the service, a lavender-scented facial towel refreshes countenances for prolonged grinning jags.
Hornbrook Center for Dentistry
As one of only 50 dentists to have achieved the status of fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. David Hornbrook brings an elite touch to each mouth he beautifies. Because he views each smile as a chance for his clients to show their confidence, he seeks nothing less than spectacular results with each service, whether he's straightening teeth, installing porcelain veneers, or whitening enamel.
To mirror the level of service each client gets in the dentist's chair, the staff stocks their coffee bar with juices and freshly baked chocolate-chip cookies as flickering aromatherapy candles create a light, soothing aroma. After each appointment, they hand patients a lavender-scented facial towel to help them refresh and reward cheeks for waiting patiently as teeth get all the attention.
