Using all-natural gels and fully customized tooth trays, Pro Smile Teeth Whitening brings professional-caliber dental treatments to homes across the country. After molding the kit to their own teeth?a process that takes just over a minute?customers fill the tray with gel and start their smile-brightening journey. Enhanced with an optional LED treatment, the whole procedure takes about 30 to 60 minutes a day for 7 to 14 days, and results last up to six months with regular brushing. The trays retain their shape permanently, so unless customers lose them or sprout a set of tusks, they can repeat the whitening process as often as necessary by ordering gel refills.

Visitors to the practice are immediately put at ease with warm blankets, pillows, and freshly brewed headphones. The office has also been designed with children's comfort in mind: they can spend time in a colorful play area and give mid-cleaning hugs to Oliver, the resident teddy-bear puppet with a winning smile. That same thoughtfulness extends beyond the office walls: Dr. Crete gives back to the community by supporting a local ballet company and a nonprofit group that helps people with disabilities.
Mobile Laser Kombat's laser tag simulates realistic squad-based fights between opposing teams with myriad adrenaline-pumping missions. Players arm themselves with infrared-firing guns and don laser sensors, which record hits, before defeating nemeses with crack marksmanship, tactical prowess, and a reckless disregard for the photons sacrificed in the name of victory. The missions are based on popular video games and include Capture the Flag (modeled after Battlefield), Hostage Rescue (based on Rainbow Six), and Final Infection (influenced by Left 4 Dead), pitting shooters against waves of implacable zombies and manatees. Between games, light-based warriors can recuperate on the festival's grounds, sampling local food, taking in musical entertainment, and browsing the arts-and-crafts market.
