At Baer Dental Designs, Dr. Christopher Baer and in-house massage therapist Stephanie Cross team up to brighten clients' façades through professional whitening treatments and relaxing massages. A 45-minute in-office Zoom! whitening session helps eliminate smile discolorations resulting from everything from coffee stains to incisor tattoos. For the noninvasive procedure, patients lay back in a dental chair as Dr. Baer applies a light-reactive gel to the top and bottom teeth before saturating mouths with the bleaching beam of specialty Zoom! light. The treatment erases blemishes from bicuspid to molar, reducing visible stains and whitening teeth an average of eight shades.
Voted Best Dentist by Aurora Sentinel readers, Dr. S. Kent Lauson straightens out uneven chompers with Invisalign, 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 dental exam, including 3-D i-CAT and panoramic x-rays, eight pretreatment photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. After recording the specific dimensions of the patient's jawbone, Aurora Orthodontics communicates with Align Technology to ensure trays contour to exact measurements and include a bottle of New Smile Smell mouthwash.
Ulta's licensed staff, which partakes in ongoing training to keep skills sharp, creates customized looks and expert image enhancement using acclaimed beauty products. Like a loaf of bread in a space shuttle with a broken sunroof, hairstyles can grow stale between salon visits. A 45-minute coif-cultivation session, in which the stylist takes into account face shape and lifestyle, energizes follicles and forges a salon-fresh look. In the one-hour Dermalogica facial, an aesthetic augur examines skin in order to customize a course of cleansing, toning, and moisturizing session with Dermalogica products. The treatment leaves skin impeccable, like a recently buffed and oiled slab of marble.
