This is a three step procedure beginning with a solution called Levelan which is applied and stays on the skin for two hours. The next step is intense pulse light (IPL), which acts to stimulate collagen. The final step is to lay under a blue light for seventeen minutes. This phase can be a bit... READ MORE

No Improvement, and I Had Vertigo. Someone Should Check This Out - Brea, CA

I've done Accent and Exilis, they are so similar in their delivery that there is no way I would know the difference other than the name on the machine. Accent will firm the skin a little (on the body)...temporarily, maybe for three months. Exilis, I did not notice any improvement. I had 4... READ MORE

It's Working! - Long Beach, CA

I have had the DPL device for about 2 months, and incredibly only took it out of the box 2 weeks ago! I think I was intimidated by the instructions to put it together. It was very easy, by the way. It is tedious to sit with your face in this thing for 17 minutes, but after doing it about five... READ MORE

Can Permanent Existing Crowns Be Matched?

I have had crowns on my two front teeth since I was quite young. They have been redone several times over the years. I had several adjacent teeth bonded, as I was having gum... READ MORE

Erbium or CO2, Fraxel or Ablative?

I am sixty, fair, and my skin is not too bad. All of the above have been recommended, all for different reasons. I know I do not want white, waxy looking skin as many of my... READ MORE

I have now been told that another tooth is cracked. My front tooth already shattered! Can lasers cause damage to your teeth?

I bit into something a few months ago and split my front porcelain crown right in two. My dentist could give me no reason for this happening. I now have been told that a... READ MORE

I was quoted $2500 for this procedure...might be worth the air fare to go to Lincoln!! READ COMMENT

I'll definitely check it out!! READ COMMENT

He did offer a payment plan. For the significant cost, I think they have to offer that option. My teeth overlapped as a kid, and I had my front teeth capped at nineteen. Before that, I wouldn't smile when speaking close up, only from... READ COMMENT

Well, I can't say that I blame you. Even when advice is good, it may not be practical in your situation. Yes, it would cost that much. My work will be fifty percent more than this, but that includes three crowns, which are more work... READ COMMENT

Most of the cosmetic dds in So Cal prescribes to having eight veneer's for a complete smile. I have several friends who had their veneers done before this protocol was established, and, to me their smiles appear not quite right, the... READ COMMENT
