NuYu Teeth Whitening's range of dental gels whitens teeth in spas or the comfort of one's home. Both their take-home and in-office solutions use silicone mouth trays, which comfortably hold whitening gel snugly against teeth as they coax out stains. Their take-home whitening kits come in three varieties: a standard set with peroxide gel, an extra-strength kit designed specifically for tobacco stains, and an organic pack that preempts peroxide with an eco-friendly formula that leaves teeth so dazzling, global-warming rays are reflected right back into space.
Laughing youngsters huddle in a play area as adults sip warm lattes nearby and check their email at an Internet bar. Individually mounted TVs, heated pillows, and video-game rooms keep patients entertained and at ease in each of DFW Family Dentistry’s seven offices. Every office shares the same focus on patient comfort, and they stay open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for appointments before school, after work, or before nightly werewolf hunts. DFW Family Dentistry stands behind its dentists' work with a three-year warranty for issues such as chipped fillings.
Within Smile Studio DFW's meticulous office, a special teeth-whitening contraption stands at the ready to brighten smiles. Armed with a trademarked precision Applia-Brush, guests can ready their teeth with peroxide gel without worrying about troubling their gums. They then relax as beams of cool blue LED light wash over stains, activating the gel and whitening teeth up to eight shades. The process is faster and more effective than at-home whitening kits or toothpaste infused with white paint, and the results typically last up to a year.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach 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.
Floss Dental's dentists and surgeons, many of whom are often featured on local TV stations, may specialize in preventative care, but they also beautify mouths with cosmetic- and reconstructive-surgery services, such as veneers, Invisalign, and dental implants. They harness panoramic x-rays to get a complete view of the teeth, and they broadcast these pictures on a TV, which helps them explain which treatments are necessary and to point out which tooth would look best with an inlaid diamond chip.
Floss Dental encourages patients to keep coming back by offering free Invisalign consultations and free Boost whitening once a year to those who maintain their regular cleanings. Flat-screen TVs and satellite radio entertain patients during their procedures, and sedation dentistry keeps them free from anxiety in a dream-like state.
