One may have to look around a while before finding a more advanced dental office than Exceptional Dental Family Dentistry. Behind the office’s cozy wooden floors, leather furniture, and walls strewn with sports memorabilia, an armament of diagnostic equipment and restorative techniques pulse between the hands of Dr. Darrell Bourg and his experienced associates. 3D imaging creates a full topography of mouths, giving the doctor the information necessary to replace missing teeth with dental implants that look and function naturally. At the cosmetic end, teeth whitening gently lifts out stains cause from coffee, smoking, and aging and tooth-colored composites replace conspicuous metal amalgams for fillings that are virtually invisible. Exceptional Dental Family Dentistry boasts associations that include Louisiana Dental Association, New Orleans Dental Association, BBB, The American Orthodontic Society, and American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
The massage therapists at Euphoric All Over Day Spa whisk their clients to quiet, comfortable rooms to perform about a half dozen massage modalities. Therapists can play soft music while rendering classic techniques such as Swedish and deep-tissue massages, or relaxing couples massages. The staff might also incorporate lotion or light oils, which lubricate the CD player so the soft music continues to play.
A thriving practice founded by two accomplished doctors, Devereux & Nguyen Orthodontics cleans and corrects carrot cutters using a comfortable and metal-less alternative to braces. The straightening process begins with a full exam, which maps out tonsil caves using x-ray cameras and impressionable teeth trays. A 3-D graphics program synthesizes this information into a detailed chomper chart, helping doctors design a finely tuned set of invisible fang shifters that can help erase mouth gaps and ease crowding.
The aestheticians at Dimitri Dermatology exfoliate face-skin and shrink pores during 30-minute microdermabrasion sessions. Upon arrival, patients discuss their countenance's history with a staff member before handing it over for scrubbing, ensuring that each session is appropriately tailored to account for sensitivity and loose glass eyes. After enjoying a manual cleaning by the hands of an aesthetician, faces find a temporary home under microdermabrasion machines, which aim to shuffle off expired cells to reveal the younger, healthy flesh waiting in the wings. Because wrinkles are caused in part by excess dead skin, microdermabrasion treatments may also reduce lines on the face.
