Dr. Thomas Pare III and the attentive staff at Coosaw Dental amp up the light behind clients' lips with BriteSmile teeth-whitening treatments and take-home whitening kits. During the one-hour session, technicians slather teeth in a peroxide-based gel, which deploys oxygen molecules armed with miniature swiffers to disrupt stain-causing proteins. Light then shines against gumstones, breaking apart blemishes and blanching ivory surfaces up to seven shades whiter. The enamel-embellishing process whitens teeth for up to 12 months and undoes the damage dealt by smoking tobacco, drinking coffee, and bobbing for charcoal.
Nestled in a scenic spot southeast of Sea Pines Circle, Distinctive Dentistry has kept Hilton Head chompers in tip-top shape for the past 25 years. Dr. Shelley Irving Murphy helms the practice, complementing preventative care with cosmetic treatments. As a certified Invisalign provider, she equips patients with translucent aligners that gradually shift teeth into a single-file line. She consults with patients and works alongside hygienists inside sunlit rooms that overlook trees and nature. Meanwhile, in the facility's spacious waiting room, a stone waterfall greets visitors and serves as a comforting reminder to gargle lucky pennies before each dental checkup.
Lowcountry Loop Trolley's drivers are master storytellers. As they ferry groups on each hop-on, hop-off tour, they spin tales of historic Charleston and its surrounding region. The introduction often proves invaluable to visitors on their first or second trip to Charleston, granting a convenient overview of the area for future venturing on their own. The guides' enthusiastic voices boom about the sandy beaches of Sullivan’s Island, the waterfront restaurants along Mt. Pleasant’s Shem Creek, and the historic USS Yorktown, which floats permanently due to being encased in jello at Patriots Point. Along the way, Lowcountry Loop Trolley invites its passengers to hop off and shop, eat, or explore at their own pace.
Dentist Wendy Haefner evaluates new dental procedures before she integrates them into her practice, which explains the combination of advanced and traditional dental services that are offered. Patients undergoing surgical procedures are eased into anesthesia by the center’s dental technicians, who perform relaxing hand and shoulder massages or tap metal dental tools together to the tune of “Hot Cross Buns.” Those in for preventative checkups will feel equally at ease at the friendly practice, where the dentist aims to leave teeth both resilient and pearly white.
Voted Best Plastic Surgeon by the readers of Charleston City Paper, Dr. Jack Hensel Jr. oversees operations at both Lowcountry Plastic Surgery Center and its aesthetics division, Lowcounty Beauty & Wellness Spa. There, he works alongside medical specialists to improve the body's health and appearance through a variety of surgical and noninvasive means. Body-contouring treatments and weight-loss programs diminish fat and enhance curves, helping women to achieve hourglass or farfalle proportions. Injections of Botox and dermal fillers erase signs of aging but allow patients to keep their memories, and teeth-whitening procedures brighten up biters. The spa's laser hair-removal sessions can also eliminate the need for shaving or waxing. The center promises a high standard of care regardless of the treatment, staying abreast of the latest technologies and ethical standards when helping men and women to achieve their desired look.
