Elite Brights’ at-home advanced teeth-whitening kit lets users buff molars and blanch incisors without swapping plush recliners for dentist chairs. After a routine tooth brushing, flossing, and fang sharpening, the customer applies the kit’s pale-making gel to a plastic whitening tray. They then install the tray securely in the mouth and fit an LED light against the front teeth to activate the gel’s hydrogen-peroxide cleaning agent, brightening chompers without harming preexisting dental fixtures, such as permanent harmonicas. The kit comes with enough gel for two to five whitening treatments, allowing clients to spread their dental purification over time.
After successfully brightening smiles overseas, Magic Smile came stateside to perform teeth-whitening treatments with its patented multistrength formula—available in eight strengths to match varying levels of sensitivity. Technicians prop jaws open with a comfortable mouth opener before painting the formula directly onto teeth, negating the need for messy trays. A specialized LED lamp then beams down on teeth to activate the stain-removing process. After treatments, teeth appear up to six shades lighter and can retain their new hues for up to two years. Unlike reading sonnets to one's molars, the treatments do not significantly increase dental sensitivity.
Bright White's licensed dental hygienists, armed with LEDs and other technomagery, eradicate persistent stains and yellowing to restore pristine pearlescence. First, they lather tarnished chompers in a whitening activator, a light-reactive compound that plays wingman during a tooth's photonic flirtation. Then, while lips take a spectator seat with the help of a mouthpiece, a blue LED pulses, bathing smile bricks in calibrated waves of luminescence. The process lasts about 30 minutes and leaves teeth noticeably whiter for 6 to 18 months, depending on lifestyle, goals, and amount of time spent eating grease paints.
At Nirvana Bodyworks, couples glean the art of therapeutic touch in sessions that impart the stress-subduing techniques used by a massage professional. The professional massage instructor leads low-key sessions that focus on the most commonly stressed physique regions, targeting pain and posture problems in the back or covering the neck, shoulders, face, and extremities like an overachieving winter scarf. As pairs join group classes of no more than 12 couples or scoot a little closer for a private session, a teacher calls upon a varied curriculum that weaves demonstration, practice time, and personalized pointers into a rich educational tapestry. Duos leave prepared to dissolve each other’s aches and pains in any situation, whether after stints in front of a computer, long strolls through a mall, or romantic strongman competitions for two.
Paula has been in private practice since 2000 and continues to advance her studies in Body Memory Recall after first studying the practice from its founder, Jonathan Tripodi. Drawing on multiple modalities of massage to unleash the body's own healing abilities, the therapy treats the whole body and is thought to address the symptoms and causes of problems such as joint and muscle dysfunction, headaches, scoliosis, stress, anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, pelvic pain, asthma, and an unwillingness to try cottage cheese.
