Before light bulbs, the upper echelons of intelligence were reserved for those with the most luminous grins, since their ability to study past daylight hours gained them a competitive edge on college entrance exams. Illuminate ivory mouth towers with today's Groupon: for $77, you get one 50-minute Beaming White teeth-whitening treatment at TréusDell Salon & Spa at any of their three greater San Antonio locations (a $200 value).
TréusDell polishes lackluster gum sticks with a teeth-whitening system that unites patient comfort with high-strength stain fighting. The 50-minute treatment begins with the artistic application of a Beaming White–brand gel composed of 16% peroxide, stronger than many tray-based solutions and nearly all brands of white crayon. Blue LED light activates whitening agents, training its disarming gaze upon gel-bathed suspects with tarnished records. Throughout the procedure, a gentle cheek retractor protects mouthparts and comfortably props up mouth roofs. Whitenees typically receive one to four shades of improvement and the confidence to flash open-mouthed smiles without wearing wax lips. Though the treatment itself lasts about 50 minutes, clients should allow a total of 90 minutes for a visit, which includes evaluation and prep time.
