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.

Throw out your nail polish remover. Trash your nail dryer. Spring’s hottest new beauty fad, if not budding long-term trend, is Minx. These vinyl, stickerlike sheets have all but replaced nail polish and have stirred up a large appeal ranging from Rihanna, Beyonce, Pink, and Fergie to ordinary housewives with fashion maven tendencies.
Making economic sense, pedicures can survive longer than a month and manicures, depending on the user’s lifestyle, range from five days to two weeks. With many style options and colors to choose from, the long lasting wears also make the $70 manicures and $105 pedicure that Amp Salon (at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas) charges seem more palatable.
The other benefit: There’s no drying time. Minx clients can dig into their purses for keys and cell phones with destroying their nails or their day.
The application consists of a heating process, during which the vinyl sheet sticks to the nail. From there the excess is filed off and the clients are good to go. With the manicure included, the entire appointment process requires about a half-hour of time.

Escape the woes of our zany world and pamper yourself a bit – or longer – by stepping into something really spa-tacular. Experience…the Calgon take on human growth hormones: ElevenSpa
This very luxurious off-the-scale 20,000-square-foot spa is opening on Wednesday, February 11, at Town Square in Las Vegas. It’s so massive that corporate spa events are being planned.
Originating in Delray Beach, Fla., the unique spa has a new Las Vegas home- and size isn’t all that matters. It features many amenities not commonly found in spa-ing including six foot tall white patent leather chairs that are wrapped in down (yes, down); mobile pedicure stations; and through all the torture their clients are encouraged to dip their dainty tippy toes into gorgeous glass woks instead of commonplace jet tubs.
And for the discriminating audiophile spagoer, a DJ booth hovers above the spa with plug-and-play ability so you can control your own beats- if you dare.
And don’t even think about ordering the ol’ green tea and ice water. C’mon, you’re in Vegas, baby! Champagne is always an arm reach away – served on butlers’ trays.
Bottomless champagne, complementary “after” makeup applications, welcome gifts, and a lounge and relaxation room, resplendent with artificial grass, all tug visitors’ robes to stay longer than planned. And if all this is not enough, a curved wall projects classic films onto it as you luxuriate your day away.
