Dr. Mike Kesner has always had a knack for working with his hands. As a boy, he constantly built model vehicles. In college, his plans to become a medical doctor shifted to dentistry because it held more opportunity for the hands-on manipulation of small instruments and precision parts. In 1984, he established Made Ya Smile Dental, a place where he carefully extracts wisdom teeth, fills in spaces between teeth, and installs implants into the jawbone to replace a missing tooth. He also specializes in Lumineers, and his practice’s five locations together make up one of biggest Lumineers providers in the country.
Although he and his team of dentists work in separate locations, each of their offices share a similar design and set of amenities. Visitors at any of the five locations marvel at the reception areas’ coffeehouse ambiance as they sit at a café table, sip coffee, and work on the movie script for Vampires vs. Martians: The Reddest Dawn. In the treatment rooms, patients drift off while listening to music on the provided headphones. Anxious patients relax with nitrous oxide or the sounds of the rainforest simulated by the staff.
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.
Dr. Afroz Burges enjoys treating patients with gentle, compassionate care. She takes pride in her ability to listen to their questions and concerns, thoroughly explain all treatments, and restore or improve their health. Whether they require general, preventive, or cosmetic services, visitors’ comfort is further ensured by the use of advanced technology, including powerful teeth-whitening treatments and CEREC equipment that can allow for a tooth restoration in a single visit. Dr. Burges also straightens smiles with orthodontics and offers Invisalign as an alternative to metal braces or smiling in front of a jet turbine to shift teeth into place.
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.
