At Carolina Dental Arts, patients can spiff up their mouth bones with lustrous sheen while ensuring dental health thanks to an experienced staff of tooth experts. Each visit begins with a dental exam to thoroughly probe chompers for signs of decay, fractures, and fossil fuel reserves, while a series of x-rays scans each tooth’s enamel-protected innards to check for nerve damage and buried treasure. Next, a regular cleaning meticulously removes plaque and tartar while helping patients decrease the chance of developing cavities, gingivitis, and gum disease. Dental maintenance should be performed every six months and comes in handy for making a good first impression, just like strong hand shakes and wide-eyed, unceasing eye contact.
Now in its eighth year, the Downtown Raleigh Living Tour sends casual browsers and serious shoppers alike on a self-guided exploration of downtown dwellings. Contemporary condos, beautifully restored homes, and burgeoning neighborhoods join forces to present a mixture of housing styles and locations, enabling tour-takers to survey the center of the city's full spectrum of living options. Information hotspots along the route dole out budget-saving tips, and for additional suggestions, most homeowners will be available at featured abodes to answer questions and make sure excitable garages stay on their leashes. In order to gain further perspective on urban existence, participants are encouraged to offset pad prospecting with stops at some of Raleigh's standout amenities. Restaurants, unique retail shops, and arts and cultural venues intersect searches with relaxing respites, which let groups kick back and drink in the city's ambiance without having to taste-test the water in each of its penny fountains.
Even as a teenager, Chintan Patel knew what he wanted to do with his life. He spent two years in high school shadowing his family dentist and decided to dedicate himself to helping others by restoring their smiles and self-confidence. After earning his dental degree—the first in his proud family to become a doctor—and working for several years in Florida, Dr. Patel returned home to North Carolina. He begins each day at Falls Lake Dental with the goal of serving patients with the same passion and care he witnessed in his high-school mentor.
Dr. Patel is an expert in procedures ranging from bone grafting and dental-implant installation to in-office Sapphire teeth-whitening treatments. His patients enjoy amenities that include warm blankets, a beverage bar, and convenient computer kiosks where they can draft love letters to healthy teeth.
The teeth-whitening professionals at DazzlingWhiteSmileUSA believe that a brighter smile is a gateway to success, and they help clients achieve this goal with a unique variety of effective whitening products.

Alternatively, they offer Forever White teeth-whitening pens ideal for touch-ups or on-the-go whitening. The convenient design dispenses whitening gel directly onto teeth without the need for refrigeration or lights. DazzlingWhiteSmileUSA also offers remineralization gels, which reduce tooth sensitivity and strengthen enamel by replenishing important minerals.
