Dr. Scott M. Reader and his team of smile savants foster healthy, glistening grins with teeth-whitening treatments and comprehensive checkups. Sapphire whitening treatments, completed during a single one-hour session, can produce immediate results. Using laser bleaching technology, the technicians oversee the tint-shifting process, which can make teeth up to 10 shades brighter by blasting away stains caused by smoking or chewing on crayons. Alternatively, tooth technicians emancipate chompers from tartar, plaque, or a domineering soul patch with an attentive cleaning. Then, depending on each patient's individual needs, a series of either bitewing or full-mouth x-rays snaps detailed shots of oral structures. To cap off checkups, dental detectives administer a thorough examination and dish out advice for proper homecare.
Dentist and certified Botox professional Dr. Barbara A. Wetmore of Ocean Breeze Dental delivers injections of Botox's FDA-approved formula, which diminishes the appearance of wrinkles for up to four months. In an appointment that lasts 30–60 minutes, depending on the number of areas targeted and the number of rounds of Jenga played, Dr. Wetmore pinpoints facial nerves and blood vessels. The purified protein formula blocks nerve impulses to prevent muscle contractions, diminishing the appearance of crow's-feet, inter-eyebrow lines, and forehead wrinkles. The process requires no downtime and no anesthetic, though, like the discovery that one’s dog can speak in Latin, it may cause slight discomfort. Inside the office, ocean-themed décor—including a mural depicting French doors leading out to a palm tree on a sandy beach—relaxes patrons' eyes, and an elegant dolphin statue reminds them that smooth skin need not be dependent upon jumping through hoops. Groupon buyers may choose to upgrade services to Juvederm treatments for an additional fee.
