For the team of dentists at Cornerstone Dentistry, cosmetic dentistry is about more than just good looks. So although he leaves mouths looking impeccable with implants, full-mouth reconstructions, and rhinestone-bedazzled canines, he never loses sight of the primary concern of any procedure?ensuring healthy relationships between the jaws, teeth, and facial muscles.
With an approach described in Palm Springs Life as "concierge health care," Cornerstone Denistry sees far fewer patients than the typical dentist or armchair psychiatrist, giving each patient greater attention. The dentists find they can maintain a higher standard of work with these longer appointment times while also building a friendly rapport with their patients. The dental group plans to open a third location in Glendale this June.
After a family trip to Hawaii inspired Spa Escape's signature Marine Mud detoxifying mask, the spa's owners worked to build a menu of services that similarly combined relaxation with a results-driven approach. Their trained staff of therapists and aestheticians helped a great deal in this mission, calling upon years of experience to develop a range of treatments to beautify and relax the body. Though the Marine Mud mask still serves as an ever-popular anchor, the spa's menu now encompasses exfoliating facials, waxing treatments, and massage therapy. Should stresses prove insusceptible to the therapists' targeted strokes and whispered rumors that your shoulders are haunted, the spa's packages grant up to a half-day of relaxation with multiple treatments.
Even after Drs. Derek Hyun and Ruby Ann Dollins graduated from their respective dental schools, their educations were far from over. The dentists stay abreast of the latest technologies through courses at Nobel Biocare, Osstem Implant, and Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. At Bel Villaggio Dental, they specialize in full-mouth reconstruction and cosmetic dentistry, employing Invisalign treatments to straighten smiles and Zoom! whitening treatments to remove unsightly stains and dental tattoos.
While they're keeping teeth white, the dentists are also keeping Bel Villaggio Dental green. The office is mercury-free, uses high-quality materials or all-ceramic restorations, rather than nonprecious metals, and follows strict mercury-removal protocol. In addition, the office's digital x-rays emit up to 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays.
Dr. Darron Tanioka leaves his patients smiling after providing them with general, cosmetic, and orthodontic dental services. At Creekside Dental, he examines mouths for signs of decay or disease and removes plaque and tartar covering the teeth. He also whitens teeth with Zoom treatments that use a light-activated hydrogen-peroxide gel to remove red-wine, smoking, and coffee stains. His services extend beyond mouth care, however. He also helps treat sleep apnea using a comfortable dental appliance.
The silver and gilt-edged mirrors of Salon O are pretty enough on their own. However, they're there to serve a purpose—reflecting the stylish hair designs of the salon's skilled stylists and color specialists. Stylists such as Erin Fargo transform manes into works of art with subtle ombre or reverse ombre color, sleek styles and cuts, and Babe hair extensions. They can also offer recommendations to improve the health and beauty of a client's hair, such as brushing it with an apple a day. As guests await appointments, they can sit beneath an elegant chandelier, peruse the salon's extensive selection of products, or ask stylists to regale them with tales of their 2010 Cut-A-Thon, in which the staff raised money for breast cancer research.
