At Citadel Dental Group, Drs. Vincent Spero and Farrah Koutchek keep teeth in mint condition with services that range from preventative cleanings to dental implants. Thorough examinations and low-radiation digital x-rays reveal the condition of teeth before treatments. Patients may opt for conscious IV sedation, which increases comfort while keeping patients conscious and in control.
Soraya Acevedo, DDS and her team at Acevedo Dental Group know that using the most technologically advanced treatments often enhance patient comfort and convenience. As a member of the Academy of Laser Dentistry, she seeks out the latest industry innovations, including laser gum-disease treatments that avoid the use of shots and drills. In the Laser WPT process, Nd:Yag and Er:Yag energy removes the diseased gum lining, increases the body's healing response, and erases calculus problems or other scribblings from the root surface. Dr. Acevedo also quickly restores teeth with same-day crowns and straightens smiles with clear, removable Invisalign aligners.
A trio of gilded, glittering chandeliers lures customers away from the bustle of Melrose Avenue and into an antique-strewn spa where an ornate curio cabinet cradles European-style facial products. Aestheticians quietly shut the door on workaday stresses and escort clients into pure-white private rooms for attentive care and lush treatments, which various press outlets have lauded since the studio's opening in 1985 and the simultaneous invention of the newspaper. Ruth's Skin Care's many facials can reverse the effects of Father Time or hitting the snooze button with one's forehead and use natural ingredients such as vitamin E, minerals from the Dead Sea, and buttermilk. Massage sessions slake stress, and body scrubs rid backs and limbs of dead skin while adding deep moisture.
At Universal City Dental Center, Dr. Jirair Gasparian and his team perform a variety of procedures intended to protect patients' teeth and gums. Periodic checkups both detect and treat signs of trouble before they become serious complications, but when action is required to correct a problem, the practice offers surgical as well as noninvasive options.
Porcelain crowns and veneers conceal signs of damage, dental implants help fill any gaps, and tooth-colored composite fillings seamlessly replace decay. Additionally, Invisalign straighteners even out smiles, and Rembrandt teeth-whitening products brighten the stains caused by coffee, cigarettes, or a career spent taste-testing food coloring.
The dental office of Danny Shiri, DDS operates with the core belief that each patient should have all the information they can get before undergoing procedure. To that end, the staff at this office puts a high emphasis on patient education, answering questions, and teaching preventative care. In addition to general dental services such as exams and root canals, the team can administer whitening treatments, porcelain veneers, dental implants, and bonding. They also fit patients for Invisalign, a clear teeth-straightening system, and offer the quick Zoom treatment that makes the teeth whiter without replacing them with cotton balls.
The pampering begins the moment patrons step through Awe Spa's door. They are invited to sample complimentary hot tea and cookies while lounging in leather recliners, and don plush bathrobes woven from cotton that really believed it was a cloud. But the real royal treatment begins when clients enter private massage rooms. Here, a team of licensed therapists relax tense muscles with hot-stone, deep-tissue, and Thai massages, sometimes incorporating the calming perfumes of aromatherapy oils. A selection of exfoliating body scrubs can also leave skin smooth and scented with tamarind or green tea.
