    Cosmetic makeovers and implant restorations for full-mouth reconstruction are the lab’s specialty, so the shade-taking room featuring Vident’s Easyshade system is frequented by about 10 patients per week; the room is also used for minor adjustments. The new facility is a short train ride from Manhattan, and Smile Design has a driver that picks up clients and patients from the station and brings them to the lab. Although the owners can’t name names, they see their fair share of celebrity clientele!
