Doctors David VanderLugt and Brian Mulder stylize Grand Rapids smiles and keep greedy tooth fairies at bay with a mouth-mending menu of oral upkeep services. The initial exam investigates canine canyons and the under-gum tunnels of molar molehills, diagnosing potential tooth threats and recommending necessary treatments (a $68 value). A series of bite-wing x-rays of the anterior and posterior chompers expose any threats hiding beneath your enamel, such as cavities or bandana-clad stagecoach robbers (a $50 value). Stained, dulled, or discolored people-fangs are reradiated with an at-home teeth-whitening treatment, which bequeaths all patients with upper and lower whitening trays (a $200 value each). All teeth-whitening patients must be at least 18 years of age and should call ahead for an appointment.
The trend-savvy stylists of JayAhnest Salon beautify clients from cowlick to cuticle. Alongside modern cut and color services, hair specialists reframe the eyes with brow shaping, and nail techs conjure symmetry with meticulous manicures. For special occasions or a high-stakes staring contest, a makeup artist can gussy up the eyes, lips, and cheekbones.
At Lake Eastbrook Family Dentistry, Dr. Ellen Tavarone and her dedicated staff refurbish smiles with a bevy of dental services. During the one-hour visitation, Dr. Ellen explores mouths’ nooks to unearth cavities and any problems lurking under gum lines and in between teeth. X-rays further reveal furtive goings-on, exposing any decay and ponzi schemes invisible to the naked eye. Once exams conclude, a skilled hygienist sloughs mouths in a foamy bath of scrubbing and flossing, extricating plaque and tartar. Patients looking to brighten teeth can cart home a 10-day supply of Day White whitening treatment. After the initial appointment, Dr. Ellen spends 30 additional minutes crafting custom molds of mouths that the patient later fills with professional grade whitening gel or spillover from piggy banks. The gel’s oxygenated muscles heft out stains caused from coffee, tea, and tobacco.
Sandra Murphy, Glamour Permanent Cosmetics owner and certified cosmetics specialist, bestows eye and lip regions with natural-looking fullness and perpetual allure. A team of four safety-certified staffers assists Murphy, each specializing in a particular form of cosmetic enhancement such as eyelash extensions, teeth whitening. Murphy has honed her craft since 2006 and now instructs a 100-hour course designed to certify new permanent cosmetics artists.
At Trilogy Dental, Dr. Darren Riopelle and his talented team of tusk tenders provide a full line of dental services and techniques. During your visit, a dental devotee will harness the power of laser fluoroscopy to detect tooth decay using a KaVo Diagnodent—an instrument that examines tooth enamel gently, without molar-menacing pokes. They'll then stage a digital x-ray photo shoot and carnassial cleaning, carefully prepping your mouth stars for their next feature-length fang flick. Finally, to counter the teeth-staining effects of coffee, tobacco, and flavored toothpicks, the doctor will make impressions of your upper and lower chewing surfaces to create customized whitening trays. Used in conjunction with a specialized bleaching solution, the trays will allow customers to increase the brightness of their smiles in the darkness of their own homes. Today's deal is valid for Trilogy Dental's Whiten For Life program, which includes a complimentary touch-up bleaching kit at every six-month visit (clients must attend regular checkups two times per year to qualify for gel refills).
Dr. Brian Ruster carries the memories of two decades’ worth of cavities, chipped teeth, and yellowing. A member of six dental associations and a former faculty member of the University of Rochester, Dr. Ruster attacks his job with exuberance and expertise. He specializes in the full range of dentistry, from recommending a new toothbrush to replacing missing teeth with dental implants to showing where to dig for missing teeth with an old toothbrush. He keeps his professorial mentality with him at all times, educating patients on all their options, such as the differences between composite fillers versus metal amalgams. He also has a support staff of four dental hygienists, who help him manage the wood accented, carpeted office, which looks as modern as a brand-new airport.
