Helmed by 17-year veteran dentist Dr. Greg McElroy, the friendly staff at Smiles by Design transforms teeth into glistening rows of immaculate enamel with one-hour whitening treatments. During a chair-side LumiBrite procedure, peroxide gel combines with beams of plasma light to infiltrate oral orifices and whiten teeth up to seven shades. Immediately after the procedure, patients may notice a new mouth glimmer with little to no increased sensitivity. In order to maintain newfound sparkles, customers should avoid consuming red wine, coffee, dark colas, or anything that would stain a ghost costume for 12–24 hours following the procedure.
Dr. Gary J. Braunstein has spent the past three decades helping his patients achieve the smiles they've always wanted. Dental technology has advanced by leaps and bounds during that time, but Dr. Braunstein has remained at the forefront of his field. Splitting his time between Encinitas Dental Care and Carlsbad Dental Care, he oversees a staff that excels in general family dentistry as well as cosmetic treatments such as Invisalign, which either straightens teeth or makes them invisible. Other advanced services include a Zoom! whitening treatment that brightens teeth in just one visit and a PerioProtect treatment that offers a non-surgical remedy for gum disease.
Each staff member at All About You Salon & Day Spa kicks in some specific expertise, allowing them to work together in the pursuit of beauty and health. Stylists cut and color hair and mold manes into classy updos before patrons go to important photo shoots or get their heads stuck through the bannisters at the White House. Aestheticians armed with wax remove unwanted patches of fuzz and wield gentle chemical solutions to even out skin tones during peels. Drawing on five distinct modalities, including deep tissue and reflexology, massage therapists elicit happy sighs. A weight-loss specialist visits the salon once a week to help customize fitness programs for patrons.
Dr. Sarah Belderes knows that a visit to the dentist can fill many with anxiety. Some people have a phobia of dental tools; others are afraid the dentist will judge them for covering up teeth stains with whiteout. So Dr. Belderes relies on her training in cognitive behavioral psychology to alleviate the fears of her patients at Academy Dental Care.
After ensuring patients are relaxed, she performs routine checkups, preventative maintenance, and more advanced treatments, taking the time to explain everything that she's doing to further reduce anxiety.
With more than three decades of experience in family, cosmetic, and implant dentistry, Dr. Eric Deverill headlines Beachwalk's bill of professional mouthbone beautifiers, prevailing over tooth decay and gingivitis with quality dental procedures in an office that gazes whimsically oceanward. During an exam, Dr. Deverill will take up his tooth scaler and navigate a client's gum rocks in search of suspicious craters. Then, to strip overaccessorized chompers of their plaque coats and tartar toupees, an adult cleaning will sanitize the oral cavity. Finally, x-rays explore the mouth to check for potentially harmful tooth abnormalities and burrowing bandicoots.
Under the guidance of cosmetic dentist Dr. W. David McReynolds, D.D.S, the experienced cuspid de-crudders at Del Mar Smiles brighten teeth using the Zoom! system—a quick, immediately visible way to whiten chompers an average of six–ten shades. The one-hour treatment begins with a careful prepping of the gums and lips, protecting them with a gentle covering while exposing hammy ivories for full attention in the spotlight. Next, teeth play host to a special Zoom! gel, designed to work in conjunction with the Zoom! light as it beams brightly onto teeth's surface, working together to break up stains, banish discoloration, and inspire science and beauty to high-five triumphantly. A five-minute fluoride treatment finishes up the experience, strengthening smiles and sealing in their newfound glimmer.
