Dr. Michael A. Smith and his team of dental hygienists recruit modern tools to ensure the health of smiles during 90- to 120-minute appointments. After patients settle into streamlined chairs amid flora and relaxing lighting, a hygienist peers around bicuspids, examining crevices for decay and lost diary keys. Two bitewing x-rays and a basic exam then infiltrate jaw lines, surveying issues buried beneath enamel and gums to ensure a patient’s eligibility for the whitening treatments.
For the Zoom! session, technicians first slather chompers in a specially formulated gel before shining an LED light over them, initiating a quick, painless chemical reaction that brightens teeth without wrapping them in Christmas lights. After three 15-minute sessions, patients rinse their teeth and often admire their instantly brighter grin. Alternatively, patients can opt to be fitted for custom bleaching trays to do the whitening at home at their convenience. Along with the custom-fitted trays, the dentist crafts a mold for future use, should the trays get lost or should the family dog take an interest in his own dental care.

About Dr. Michael A. Smith, DDS and Dr. Lindsey Pedersen, DMD
In nearly every situation in life, the less metal that's in your mouth, the better. General and cosmetic dentists Dr. Michael A. Smith, DDS and Dr. Lindsey Pedersen, DMD seem to have adopted this position. Unlike traditional dentistry, which repairs cavities with metal amalgams and covers up damaged teeth with conspicuous metal caps, the duo's Cerec-technology-driven dentistry relies on ceramic onlays, inlays, and veneers. And their composite resins fill in for missing enamel while remaining virtually invisible, like a ketchup stain on a red “I put ketchup on my ketchup” T-shirt. They care for patients in a calming office filled with soothing chairside candles. In addition to their in-office work, Dr. Smith also participates in a mobile dental clinic that provides dental care to low-income families.
