Orthodontia has come a long way from the crude metal bands and catgut used in some of the earliest teeth-straightening systems, and the team at Dentalville fully takes advantage of modern technology. Beyond traditional braces, the doctors straighten teeth with both fixed and removable appliances. Three types of clear braces, such as Invisalign and Essix, adjust teeth while remaining virtually invisible. Similarly, Incognito braces hide on the back of the teeth, straightening them without cutting your lips while you smile or head butt a wall. Patients whose orthodontia has to show itself can expedite the process by up to 40% with SureSmile and up to four times with Wilckodontics braces.

A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 230 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach — A Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: The Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
