Results vary according to age and habits, however people have been known to see teeth brighten one to four shades. The amount of Ultra Radiance bleach included in the deal should last around two weeks, though an additional container of solution can be purchased from ClearChoice for $30.
Dr. Kris Patel’s journey to The Pearland Clinic began upon his graduation from India's Bangalore University in 1990, before whisking him across the ocean for further study at the Fort Wayne Medical Education Program. After a brief detour to Bloomington, Indiana, he finally set up permanent practice in Houston in 1998, where he has been practicing family medicine ever since. The polylingual doc––who speaks Hindi, Gujarati, Spanish, and English––specializes in skincare, allergies, and pediatric and adolescent care, and also treats those in need of urgent care for minor emergencies, such as injuries or swallowed pride. The clinic also boasts an aesthetic branch, where visages are revamped by certified aestheticians who perform chemical peels, facials, and microdermabrasion treatments as well as cosmetic enhancements, such as permanent cosmetics and tattoo removal.
You might not be able to tell by looking at her now, but Natalie Bocard once suffered from hormonal acne and oily skin. For a lifelong fashionista, this was simply unacceptable. Natalie tirelessly researched methods to help her achieve the clear skin she dreamed about, and her eventual success inspired her to help others with similar concerns.
Today, Natalie is a licensed aesthetician and makeup artist with certifications in both microdermabrasion and airbrush makeup. At Natalie’s Notable Beauty, she helps her clients achieve healthy and youthful skin with services that include facials, body treatments, and spa parties. Her past experience has prepared her well for this current venture; aside from her aesthetic expertise, she spent 23 years as a NASA contractor, working with astronauts and researchers to treat the moon's perennially pockmarked façade.
