Like glaciers and tectonic plates, teeth are slowly yet surely on the move as they attempt to turn their host’s mouth into frozen tundra and then rip it apart like a bite-size Pangaea.

Watkin Dental Associates' professional staff attends ongoing education courses to keep abreast of modern dental procedures and technologies. Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of 6–15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw.
Those who would rather brighten their chatter factories can opt for the in-office Zoom! teeth whitening. Before the 60-minute session, clients undergo a comprehensive dental exam with x-rays to evaluate gum and tooth health. One of the office's trained mouth-maintainers then swaddles each gumstone with a light-reactive gel that's activated by a specialized UV system. After the procedure, teeth emerge up to eight shades whiter, improving stains caused by smoking, drinking coffee, and eating a pile of permanent markers.
