Teeth are important because they help the mouth chew food, pronounce syllables, and provide checks and balances against the judiciary lips and executive tongue.

Named California Dentist of the Year by the Academy of General Dentistry, Dr. Yolanda Mangrum, DDS MAGD, leads a team of experienced, professional staff in providing expert dental care. A general checkup begins with a comprehensive exam, in which tooth whisperers wield digital x-rays and other tools to check the mouth for tooth decay, gum disease, or armed food fugitives on the ADA’s Most Wanted list. Fang furbishers then thoroughly clean the teeth, removing tartar buildup and plaque.
Alternatively, customers who opt for the whitening treatment can choose between an in-office or take-home procedure. In-office Zoom! treatments coat teeth in a bleaching gel activated by bright light and secret Morse code messages delivered in three 15-minute sessions. At an initial appointment for take-home treatments, smile professionals first custom-fit a whitening tray to the patient's mouth, then check the tray's fit at a second meeting. Patients then self-apply the whitening solution for 30 minutes at a time or overnight over the course of a couple of weeks, brightening smiles and helping to erase stains from wine, coffee, or cocktails made with squid ink.
For teeth yearning to be aligned, the dentist consults with the patient to determine if veneers or Invisalign invisible braces are appropriate for the patient's mouth. The consultation may include an x-ray and basic exam. Invisalign aligners are removable and can help to correct tooth spacing, ease crowding, correct overbites, or hold back secessionist teeth who threaten to join the hands' ranks as fingernails. Customers who choose to proceed with Invisalign also receive $1,000 toward the total cost of the treatment, usually around $6,000.
