HoustonPBS, the country's oldest educational television station, beams critical knowledge, entertainment, and news into households in more than 30 counties in southeast Texas. Support by members, which makes up more than 60% of the station's budget, sustains their varied schedule and offers viewing alternatives to the bloodsports and commemorative bloodsport-plate sales that dominate commercial channels. In addition to celebrated programs for adults and children, including Frontline, Arthur, and Austin City Limits, the schedule brims with locally produced fare such as InnerVIEWS, which has featured illuminating discussions with Edward Norton, Arianna Huffington, Dan Rather, and other notables.
During the appointment, ClearChoice Orthodontic's doctors and staff perform a dental examination before making precise molds of clients' mouths to foster at-home whitening. The tray, which is ready for pickup within four to five days of the impression, is worn a few hours each night, snuggling up to patient’s fangs so the professional-strength Ultra Radiance bleach can blanch bicuspids and ivory-ize incisors. Results vary according to age and habits, however people have been known to see teeth brighten one to four shades. The amount of Ultra Radiance bleach included in the deal should last around two weeks, though an additional container of solution can be purchased from ClearChoice for $30.
At Preferred Dental Spa, tooth whisperers apply a specialty Zoom! gel onto chompers, which then bathe in focused, intense light in three 15-minute cycles. The 45-minute service causes minimal discomfort, if any, and brightens teeth up to eight shades more efficiently than holding a flashlight between teeth. Zoom! reports that with careful upkeep, results can last for years.
