French Designer Anne Fontaine Releases New Fall-Winter 2018 Collection

NEW YORK (PRWEB) September 23, 2018

This season’s collection is a sublime infusion of elegance with exoticism – a union of Parisian sophistication and Moroccan traditionalism. The decadent fabrics throughout the new designs are inspired by the traditional Moroccan Arabesque prints with a hint of Art Deco, painted in rich vibrant primary colors.

The tailoring throughout the collection is comprised of classically feminine shapes, including elegant silhouettes, skinny trousers and well cut blazers.

Inspired by her travels, Anne Fontaine has revolutionized the classic white shirt as a staple must-have this season. Throughout the collection you will discover white shirts featuring elements such as blouson sleeves, specialized lace embroidery, ribbon trims, and artisan pleats. Her ability to transform everyday pieces into lively statements, brings uniqueness into her collection. A blend of materials, texture, fine details, and bold colors exemplify Anne’s inspiration from Morocco this season.

Minutes From U.S. Border, Tijuana Dentists are Now Utilizing the World’s Most Advanced Dental Equipment

TIJUANA, Mexico (PRWEB) September 22, 2018

Every year, thousands of American patients save millions of dollars on treatments by visiting dental clinics in Mexico. Once thought of decades ago as a poor quality cheap alternative, one clinic in Tijuana has blown away that false impression with its installation of the world’s most advanced computerized dental equipment and an on-site lab. Minutes from the U.S. border, the clinics of Mexico Dental Network in Tijuana, are able to measure, manufacture and permanently cement a dental prosthesis such as a crown, veneer or crown over implant in just a single one-day visit. Even the majority of U.S. dentists still require 2-3 weeks for the process, plus several visits – and typically charge over 300% more!

The process at Mexico Dental Network begins right in the exam chair using an intraoral laser scanner which is not only less uncomfortable and time consuming than doing traditional dental impressions but the margin of error is effectively zero. Crowns are digitally designed in minutes, with a skilled dental technician making minor adjustments as necessary. A CAD/CAM file then controls the center’s in-house milling machine to precisely carve a crown using zirconia or porcelain, which is then heated in a kiln and glazed. The whole process for creating up to eight individual crowns in a single day takes between one and three hours. After manufacture, the crown is ready to be permanently cemented in place. No more waiting weeks with a temporary crown that is likely to break while an off-site lab converts a dental impression into a final crown. Even better, any imperfections or imprecise fitting can be fixed immediately, unlike traditional means which add even more days or weeks to the process.

According to the National Association of Dental Laboratories (NADL),only about 3.5% of dentist offices in the U.S. have an in-house lab. This ranks Mexico Dental Network as one of the premier dental providers in both the United States and Mexico combined. Thanks to a lower cost of education, lower operating costs, lower salaries and an overall lower cost of living, dentists in Mexico are able to offer the same quality of U.S. dental services at a much lower price. For example, the average cost for a standard porcelain crown in the U.S. is $1,200 but in Mexico it’s $300. A full set of dentures can cost up to $5,000 in the U.S. but around $1,000 in Mexico. The dramatic price difference makes any added cost for plane fare and lodging still more affordable for people living far from the southern border. With so many procedures at Mexico Dental Network needing only a single one-day visit, the total cost of treatment is even less than other Mexican clinics.

For Americans, the U.S.-Mexico border at San Diego is very easy to cross. The clinics of Mexico Dental Network are a few just blocks from point of entry in San Ysidro, CA, and they offer a free car pickup. A passport is required to enter, but a one-week tourist visa is free and easy to receive when crossing. As expected from a busy dental tourism destination, the dentists and staff all speak excellent English. The office uses the same hygienic/sterilization techniques as U.S. dentists and there are regular visits by the Mexico Health Department officials, to insure sanitary standards are upheld.

Mexico Dental Network, represents a group of several dental clinics in Tijuana, who specialize in Dental Tourism in Mexico. They have banded together to offer the highest quality dentistry, by sharing resources. For more information, visit the website at –
