Dr. Naz Tofigh—who has worked in private practice for more than 15 years—fuses style with science in her dental studio, Thirty-2 Advanced Dentistry. The office’s chic decor spans the wing chair–filled waiting room to the sleekly designed treatment areas. Her staff of specialists—an endodontist and an oral and maxillofacial surgeon—resolves complex maladies in-house, rather than outsourcing them to specialized practices or blaming toothaches on surly tongues.
The studio’s services, like its philosophy, combine aesthetics with solid know-how. Cosmetic dentistry treatments range from subtle, smile-straightening Invisalign retainers to whitening treatments. Dr. Tofigh also complements her offerings with other treatments, such as root canals and cleanings that liberate plaque from teeth.
A trio of gilded, glittering chandeliers lures customers away from the bustle of Melrose Avenue and into an antique-strewn spa where an ornate curio cabinet cradles European-style facial products. Aestheticians quietly shut the door on workaday stresses and escort clients into pure-white private rooms for attentive care and lush treatments, which various press outlets have lauded since the studio's opening in 1985 and the simultaneous invention of the newspaper. Ruth's Skin Care's many facials can reverse the effects of Father Time or hitting the snooze button with one's forehead and use natural ingredients such as vitamin E, minerals from the Dead Sea, and buttermilk. Massage sessions slake stress, and body scrubs rid backs and limbs of dead skin while adding deep moisture.
Veneers, dental implants, and teeth-whitening treatments are a few of the ways Dr. John Chaves can promote a junior-level smile. He wields these techniques in a dental practice that comes equipped to handle virtually any dental issue, from cavities and plaque to gum disease and TMJ issues. Empathetic to nervous patients, Dr. Chaves and the team remain chair-side throughout treatments, listening to patients and giving them full authority to stop procedures at any moment.
The team at Zoom White Smile has a single specialty: transforming stained smiles into sparkling white ones. During appointments, they paint bleaching gel onto teeth, changing the gel 2-3 times over the course of an hour. Afterwards,
teeth appear up to eight shades whiter than before?especially, the experts note, if he or she spends the next two days avoiding common staining culprits, like coffee and tobacco.
