After an initial consultation and screening for potential complications from severe tooth decay, Dr. Carver Little and Dr. James R. Pitts dress teeth with a specially formulated whitening gel and expose them to a focused beam of light. While under the light, the gel’s hydrogen peroxide breaks down to penetrate enamel and dentin, eradicate colored substances, and bolster dental strength as effectively as toothpaste made from liquefied oranges. Every 15 minutes, technicians wipe dental canvasses clean and lacquer on a fresh coat of solution. Once the four applications are completed, patients can beam a grin up to eight shades more luminous than before. Some teeth-whitenees may experience short-term sensitivity from the procedure, so customers may want to temporarily refrain from eating extremely hot or cold things or biting of the spikes out of railroad tracks.

Dunedin Stirling Links' 18 par 3 holes sprawl across 27 acres of Scottish links-style fairways. Whereas a typical links course has few trees, this one is lined with pines and palms, blocking the wind from knocking shots off course and blowing up kilts. The course is short overall—its longest hole is just 163 yards—welcoming novice golfers and giving experienced players a chance to hone their short games. What the course lacks in length, it makes up for in challenging shots—the 10th, 17th, and 18th tee shots must each clear water hazards. Golfers can work toward improving their personal best at the practice facility, complete with a lighted driving range for evening repetitions and a 4,000-square-foot putting green. Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 54 course * Total length of 2,264 yards from the back tees * Two sets of tees per hole * Scorecard
