The light and gel work together to gently penetrate your teeth, breaking up stains and discoloration. Zoom! Whitening takes less than one hour, and can blanken your mouthbones by as much as eight shades, which can cause you to accidentally swallow a lot of ghosts who mistake your mouth for heaven.

At Almaden Yoga, owners Ron Victor and Anuja Chaudhri work alongside a team of instructors to reach out to those who have always wanted to practice yoga but never thought they could. Targeting the mind and body, their classes ensure that everyone, from beginning pupils to experts to expectant mothers, can find a course that suits their needs.
Aside from a way to stay in shape and lengthen limbs, the instructors see yoga as a philosophy for navigating the world. They believe that a combination of postures, focused breathing, and meditation is a method for discovering calmness in any uncomfortable situation, be it an all-night study session or a postapocalyptic decade trapped in a fallout shelter. Their life-changing approach has extended to charity events, such as a sun-salutation event to benefit St. Jude Children?s Research Hospital, and their positive influence on health and mental wellness made them a Talk of the Town winner in 2012.
At Spa Dentistry, rejuvenating paraffin dips can take place at the same time as fluoride rinses. This is because Drs. Susan T. Lee and Gauri Bhagwat value their patients’ comfort almost as much as their oral health, so they incorporate spa treatments into their checkups and examinations whenever possible. The wafting scents of fresh fruit and aromatherapy candles help to put visitors at ease, along with in-room TVs, warmed mittens, and pillows for the legs, neck, and back.
While clients relax, doctors and technicians keep smiles neat and bright by performing a number of preventive, restorative, and cosmetic procedures.

Crowns and bridges can conceal discoloration behind natural-looking porcelain, and fillings and root canals help to prevent the spread of decay.:
At AZ Dental, a team of six dentists accomplish cosmetic, general, and surgical procedures with an emphasis on patient health and comfort. To keep their guests comfortable, the dental team seats them in massage chairs for procedures such as gentle root canals. They also let patients watch movies on demand to help take their minds off a filling or an elaborate bone-grafting treatment, which increases height and width of the jawbone to fill in empty spaces or correct abnormalities. Backed by a compassionate and courteous staff, the dentists work to completely subtract stress from the entire visit, whether it's for a tooth whitening or a routine checkup. The office features wood accents and hallway sconces, just like the tree forts of most robber barons.
