Guests arriving at Sarasota Smile Design might forget that they are there for porcelain veneers, an implant, or a root canal. As clients walk into the lobby, a dental concierge brings them gourmet coffee or hot tea and homemade cookies or muffins. Even the heavy wooden coffee table and Baroque-style chairs create an ambiance that more closely resembles an Italian palazzo than a dental office.
Before any appointment with Dr. Jenifer Back—a dentist who divides her time between restoring smiles, publishing journal articles, and teaching functional cosmetic dentistry—patients can access the Internet in a private lounge or watch programming on the plasma-screen TV. To help ease patients' pretreatment jitters or shake loose spare change from their pockets, they can also sit in a soothing massage chair while music emanates from a surround-sound theater.
The tech-savvy engineers behind DaVinci Teeth Whitening brighten smiles by activating a special lamp that works in tandem with a whitening solution made fresh every week in an American lab. All of DaVinci's treatments work to rid teeth of lackluster hues, clingy stains, and embarrassing love letters to dentists without weakening tooth enamel.
For owner Holly Sharpe, pampering clients is more than just making someone look good. "I love more than anything that I can turn someone's day around by helping them to relax and let go of the stresses of daily life..." she says. At Shore Rejuvenation Day Spa, she taps into this compassionate drive, as well as her extensive training, to perform a wide range of aesthetic services, including hydrating facials, seaweed wraps, waxing, and eyelash tinting. Even though she's created a soothing environment inside the spa, she also offers mobile services for clients.
Aesthetics come first for the skilled staff of Anywhere Whitening, who dazzle dental dandies with an array of in-office teeth whitening treatments. Situated within Suncoast Wellness, the team ensures clients smile, laugh, or enter Roman oratory contests with the utmost confidence. The suite's whitening system melds an exclusive gel formula with an LED whitening system for proven lightening results in 20-minute sessions. Following each safe, pain-free procedure, clients leave the office showcasing reflective smiles styled by the latest dental technology.
Dr. Thomas A. Bowles, a dental surgeon with more than 10 years of experience, works with patrons to help accomplish aesthetic goals for gleaming smiles. During the first of two appointments, the team thoroughly examines oral features and delves into jaws with a digital x-ray that produces less radiation and secondhand show tunes than a traditional unit. An intraoral camera snaps internal images of the mouth, and patients can request their own copies of the toothsome portraits. In a second appointment, a specialist delves into the results of the previous examination and describes in detail possible cosmetic improvements such as porcelain veneers, crowns, and glow-in-the-dark molars, taking each client's unique facial features into account before making recommendations.
