    The competition

    From this month's Photonics Spectra (trade mag),
    Peregrinations section (sorry not on
    line):

    Smile!
    You're a contestant in the final round of the Mrs.
    America competition, and you've successfully passed
    through the crucial swimsuit, poise and talent rounds.
    Then you realize your teeth are not white enough. What
    do you do?

    Turn to BriteSmile, the "Official
    Teeth Whitening Provider" of the pageant this year.
    John Reed, CEO of the company, based in Walnut Creek,
    Calif., (where else?) said in a press release: "Our
    state-of-the-art technology safely and effectively returns teeth
    to teir optimal natural whiteness in about an
    hour-perfect for talented, beautiful, busy women, like the
    contestants in Mrs. America."
    The laser technology was
    developed under the guidance of John Warner, a scientist
    who worked on the Hubble Space Telescope program.
    "Dr. Warner and his team have combined a gas plasma
    light technolgy with a new, wavelength-specific
    bleaching chemistry to create an exciting, revolutionary
    method of teeth whitening," the release said.
    The
    fiber optic light source activates a gel that is
    applied to the patient's teeth to strip away any
    discoloration; the gel is removed and reapplied every 20 minutes
    in the "spalike" setting of the HOnolulu
    Professional Teeth Whitening Center. All 16 front teeth are
    treated simultaneously, without burning or corroding the
    enamel or otherwise affecting tooth microhardness.
    No
    wonder the rest of us never win beauty
    pageants.

    Good news? Will LazerSmile benefit b/c of interest
    here?
