In 2011, 5280 magazine named Dr. Colin Gibson one of Denver’s top dentists. Given the breadth of Dr. Gibson’s orthodontic services, this may come as no surprise to his patients. In addition to fitting kids, teens, and adults with traditional braces, he offers subtler options, such as clear ceramic braces, for patients who are sensitive about their developing smiles. He also straightens teeth with a series of nearly invisible clear plastic aligners from Invisalign and ClearCorrect. For patients who are concerned about the duration of orthodontic treatments, Dr. Gibson offers rapid orthodontic techniques such as short-term braces, which boast a higher mouth-adjusting success rate than taunting Mike Tyson.
At Advanced Dental Arts, Dr. Randy Simon wants to know each patient "as a person, not a set of teeth." Inside his office, warm lighting and comfortable chairs dispel patients' worries about a cold, clinical atmosphere full of ghosts holding tiny mirrors. Over the past two decades, Dr. Simon has developed his own dental philosophy he believes in listening closely during every patient's visit, keeping up to date by studying dental literature and attending continuing-education classes, and creating dentist-patient relationships that last for years.
After a long and stressful day, some find a trip to the bar a nice way to relax and blow off steam. Broomfield's The Skin Bar serves a similar purpose to drinking establishments but without the libations and off-key karaoke singers. Its menu features a curated selection of skincare treatments that are designed to reduce the appearance of lines, improve complexions, and help the entire body and mind relax. Beyond the face, The Skin Bar's specialists dole out custom airbrush spray tans and attach long-lasting eyelash extensions.
Guiltless Glow owner and proprietor Laurie Middleton was once a self-proclaimed “sun-worshipper," who relied on tanning beds for her bronzed glow. She soon learned of the benefits of airbrush tanning—the customizable shades, the skin-toning and evening properties, and lack of harmful UV rays—and has since dedicated herself to sharing that knowledge. Inside her studio, she's further expanded her passion for beautification, performing skincare, nail, and waxing services, offering Norvell automatic booth tans, and adding glow to grins with DaVinci organic teeth-whitening services.
At Seek Laser Spa, a team of certified laser specialists harnesses the power of light to eradicate blemishes ranging from skin tags to unwanted stubble. During the spa’s CO2 fractional-laser facials, therapeutic beams vaporize aged skin and stimulate the growth of new collagen. Teeth-whitening procedures, meanwhile, use cold blue-laser light to activate a bleaching agent and enhance its effectiveness. Other laser-based procedures can combat toe fungus, treat rosacea, or minimize scars or spider veins.
