WhiteShade’s technicians brighten teeth with the 45- to 90-minute power-whitening treatment. Reportedly developed by the minds behind Zoom! whitening, WhiteShade’s process begins as techs line bite-registration trays with a pH-neutral carbamide-peroxide gel. Clients then sink incisors into the mouthpieces and recline while a lens-focused light shines onto teeth. The light awakens the gel while also raising the temperature within the dental trays to penetrate through the enamel layer. As surface stains begin to dissolve or consider relocating to carpets, the gel oxygenates and brightens the naturally yellow dentin layer, which shows through more visibly as the enamel thins with age. The treatment typically lightens mouth ivories from three to eight shades and results can last up to two years if patients maintain good oral hygiene and cancel their chewable coal subscription.

With its floor-to-ceiling front windows, sandstone-hued walls, and wicker furnishings, Karibe Studio is vaguely reminiscent of a beach cabana. The studio, which fell under new management in April 2011, specializes in indoor tanning: its private rooms enclose both stand-up and traditional beds spanning multiple levels of intensity. To diversify its UV-heavy offerings, Karibe Studio also offers a small selection of beauty and massage services such as single-strand eyelash extensions from Xtreme Lashes and facial waxing, which grooms overgrown eyebrows and milk moustaches.
