Las Vegas SPA-tacular!

Just the thought of going to the dentist makes most people wince, if not race for them ‘thar hills.   

That’s why it’s odd that some people are now actually seeking out the services of Summerlin-based Las Vegas Beautiful Smiles.  Offering a wide range of cosmetic dental services, ranging from gum treatments and teeth whitening to crowns, braces, and porcelain veneers, they perform all their dental procedures in comfy and cozy style. 

You won’t hear the buzz of a migraine-creating drill- electric hand pieces have replaced them. 

Gone also is the overwhelming fluoride smell in the air.  Scented candles insure that. 

Clients enjoy complimentary paraffin wax treatments as they watch TV in massage chairs. 

And it doesn’t end there.  Patients partake in a “before” and “after” photo shoot to document their change and commemorate their experience. 

Las Vegas Beautiful Smile is located at 1781 Village Center Circle, Suite 110, in Las Vegas.  702-445-7075.
