Ten Years Younger Star Opens New Zealand’s First Luxury Dental Spa

Allen Baker, the man known for transforming smiles on TV show, ‘Ten Years Younger’, has opened New Zealand’s very first luxury dental spa. The Lumino Pearl Dental Spa in Remuera, Auckland is modelled on an elite luxury European concept with a particular antipodean twist.

Allen explains: ‘We have combined state-of-the-art dental technology with a luxurious spa inspired atmosphere to create the ultimate dental experience for individuals wishing to enhance their smile and feel pampered at the same time.

‘We are also trying to change the negative perception that many New Zealanders have of the dentist’s chair. By providing an exceptional level of personal care and using modern pain relief treatments, we take the stress and the stigma out of going to the dentist. There is now nothing standing in the way of obtaining that perfect smile.’

Allen and his highly trained team at Lumino Pearl use a variety of techniques to achieve their patients' desired results, including veneers, all porcelain crowns and implants. Exciting new technologies such as 3D imagery and robot controlled porcelain sculpting are also used.

Lumino Pearl Dental Spa, which can be found at 134, Remuera Road, Auckland, is part of the Lumino The Dentists Group, New Zealand’s largest dental healthcare organisation.

About Lumino Pearl Dental Spa:

Lumino Pearl Dental Spa was designed to provide premium appearance dentistry services within an atmosphere of relaxed, modern luxury.

The spa is headed up by renowned cosmetic dentist, and star of ‘Ten Years Younger’, Allen Baker. In 1987 Allen was instrumental in starting New Zealand's first ever dental emergency surgery. This meant he was often dealing with dental trauma, which taught him just how much is possible. He brings this experience and skill in reconstruction to his work in appearance dentistry and the results speak for themselves.
