Once clients are comfortably ensconced in the dentist's chair, the oral exam begins. The resident toothsperts will check each individual incisor, cuspid, bicuspid, and molar for chips, cracks, staining, and loitering Minnesota Twins, ensuring that enamel bones are sound for biting, and gums and soft tissues will be inspected for any signs of periodontal disease. The x-ray battery exposes the roots and inner sanctums of oral stalagmites to reveal any soft spots, problem areas, or cavities. When your mouth checks out as mammalian and your teeth are cleared for takeoff, the professional teeth cleaning begins. An expert cleaning removes all the buildup and surface staining that regular brushing and flossing can't—hardened tartar, hard-to-reach plaque, and bacterial graffiti along the gum line.
Kirk Carlile was deeply troubled by the damaging effects of lasers and chemicals on people's skin. Though these costly procedures claimed to heal, they frequently did far more harm than good, changing skin pigmentation while doing little to reduce wrinkles or other skin concerns.

At Color Me Beautiful, he helps his clients achieve their desired beauty results with everything from collagen therapy and stretch-mark removal to permanent-makeup services, including tattoo removal.
