Dr. Ronald Drachenberg presides over The Smile Studio's den of dentistry with extensive postgraduate training under his belt. After relaxing in the ornate lobby bedecked in elegant artwork, mouths open wide in comfy office chairs for a comprehensive exam, which gently probes the gums, teeth, and any existing fillings, crowns, or mini-marshmallow implants for signs of trouble. A set of full-mouth x-rays makes sure teeth and jawbones aren't goofing off beneath the visible surface, followed by a thorough cleaning that evicts the tartar, plaque, and mild staining that toothbrushes are too timid to invite out.
Like a mercifully abridged Godfather marathon, custom teeth-whitening treatments are typically undertaken in two sessions. After the exam, x-rays, and cleaning, staff will take impressions of patients' chompers, then set to work fabricating clear plastic trays that will fit like a snug, mouth-shape glove. At a followup appointment, patients test-drive the trays, receive any necessary adjustments, and return over the course of several weeks armed with the trays and a special tooth-whitening solution designed to bleach away discolorations inflicted by age, smoking, fluorosis, or a steady diet of tea leaves. Visits for both options last 30–60 minutes, and though some tooth sensitivity is normal during the process, any discomfort should subside shortly after treatment ends.
