The folks at Children's Choice Pediatric Dental Care do their darnedest to make sure kids actually look forward to going to the dentist. In a waiting area adorned with brightly colored murals, kids can play video games, watch movies, or entertain younger siblings by staging a healthcare debate in the toddler play area. Each treatment chair is equipped with a video screen to keep youngsters entertained and relaxed during meticulous cleanings and exams. Dr. Jeffrey Saladin and his team of caring professionals place an emphasis on gaining patients? trust and teaching them the importance of prevention and proper home care, ensuring the health of their teeth and gums for years to come.
Dr. Kalpesh Patel and a staff of trained dental techs work to brighten smiles in television-equipped treatment rooms. During the exam, dentists scrutinize each tooth for signs of disease, decay, or Communist sympathies. A set of x-rays illuminates the structure of bones and stone masonry underneath teeth before a thorough cleaning scrubs plaque and tartar off enamel.
For the team at Fine Touch Dental, the best way to deal with an oral health problem is to catch it before it becomes one. This is why the practice invests in diagnostic technologies?such as digital x-ray systems?designed to help them during routine checkups. In the event that the injury or underlying decay has already caused damage, doctors can use various cosmetic and restorative procedures to conceal it. For instance, they can insert porcelain veneers, fillings, and crowns that match the color of the surrounding tooth, which makes them far less conspicuous than metal fillings or leopard-print dentures. In-office teeth-whitening treatments can be completed in as little as 60 minutes, fading the stains caused by everything from coffee and tea to tobacco. When more drastic repairs are necessary, the dentists can also fill gaps with dental implants or cement an entire bridge into place.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
The custom-molded dental trays made by Snow Teeth Whitener are designed to whiten teeth quickly using a proprietary bleaching gel and LED light that enhances the results. The trays work to remove stains left after years of drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes, or gargling toner. Snow Teeth Whitener products are safe for use with veneers, caps, and crowns as well.
Using all-natural gels and fully customized tooth trays, Pro Smile Teeth Whitening brings professional-caliber dental treatments to homes across the country. After molding the kit to their own teeth?a process that takes just over a minute?customers fill the tray with gel and start their smile-brightening journey. Enhanced with an optional LED treatment, the whole procedure takes about 30 to 60 minutes a day for 7 to 14 days, and results last up to six months with regular brushing. The trays retain their shape permanently, so unless customers lose them or sprout a set of tusks, they can repeat the whitening process as often as necessary by ordering gel refills.
