Erika Conde knows it's all in the details. As the owner of The Royal Treatment Nailbar & Spa, she meticulously decorates nails with artwork during services that range from Chanel-inspired pedicures to gel manicures featuring hearts, stripes, and crystals. The details don't end with digits, though. The spa's services also include laser teeth-whitening treatments and airbrush-makeup applications. If clients want to subtly accentuate their eyes, Erika and her staff can tint lashes or brows, or apply mink or silk lash extensions.
Nü|2 administers a wealth of non-surgical treatments with bountiful aesthetic and medical benefits. The customized rejuvenating chemical peel ($130) employs multiple blends of peeling solutions, packed with surface-smoothing exfoliating acids, pigment-inhibiting tone stabilizers, and skin-strengthening agents. After an aesthetician layers the serums on with expert techniques, the peel elements combine to correct coloration, banish blemishes, and polish away wrinkles and fine lines—leaving clients' faces as smooth and clear as a baby's conscience.
Natural. Vegan. Certified Kosher. These words sound like descriptions printed on a health-food label, but they actually describe the teeth-whitening technique used at Gleam Whitening Florida. There, technicians erase accumulated tooth stains with the combined powers of natural whitening gels and blue laser light. The laser light activates the gel's hydrogen peroxide content, lifting away the stains that result from smoking cigarettes, drinking wine or coffee, or gargling with prank-store mouthwash. Best of all, the treatment works without damaging delicate tooth enamel.
With a staff of 150 licensed dentists, hygienists, and dental assistants, Community Smiles conducts dental exams that aim to detect problems early and instruct youth on healthy brushing and eating habits. Examinations can also prevent more serious health conditions caused by cavities and gum disease, such as diabetes, respiratory diseases, and infection. Community Smiles has set the goal to provide free dental examinations for 80 children from low-income families, but the organization requires additional funding in order to complete this goal.
At Relax and Smile Dental Care, Dr. Steven Roth and his staff of cosmetic-dentistry specialists can reshape and reshade teeth with natural-looking composite laminate veneers. The crew shapes each veneer by hand, using treated composite materials to create a thin, smooth shell that can even out each tooth’s texture without the need to wear a mouth guard made of sandpaper. The shield attaches to the tooth surface in a painless, drill-free procedure that is completely reversible yet ensures a long-term bond. Teeth often appear straighter and whiter after treatment, and composite veneers can be quickly repaired if chipped, unlike porcelain veneers or beef.
