ii-SUNDAYjOCTOBER 13 1996 LIFE THE SALINA JOURNAb THE SUNDAY CROSSWORD The Associated Press As residential and commercial floor coverings grow more similar, carpet shoppers will see traditional workplace styles, such as pindots and geometric patterns translated Into homes. Carpet/ Nylon durable FROM PAGE B1 Commercial-grade floor coverings, densely-woven, tightly-tufted, low-pile carpeting, are coming to the aid of consumers looking for durable floor covering for the home. In multicolored shadings or overall patterns, they are a welcome alternative to sheared plush styles that show every footprint and stain. "Consumers are ready for more pattern in the home," says Janice Hall, senior stylist at Allied Signal Inc., a producer of carpet fibers in Petersburg, Va. She said they are accustomed to seeing pindots and geometries in hotel guest rooms and offices and they want the look translated for the home in both living and work spaces. As residential and commercial floor coverings grow more similar, retailers are more likely to stock interesting commercial patterns. ABC Carpet and Home in New York, for example, displays many commercial samples, though they are not labeled as such, according to Jerry Weinrib, chairman. Remember, though, that like residential carpeting, the quality of commercial carpet varies. So shop with care. "The most durable carpet is nylon," Weinrib says, "unless you're ready to spend $70 and up for a yard of good-quality wool." And Janet Morgan Daly, editor of Flooring Choices, a magazine distributed by Carpet One retailers around the country, says there are certain tactile trade-offs with commercial carpets, even in the best qualities. "Residential carpet feels comfortable under bare feet," she says. But commercial carpet is more attuned to the wheels of desk chairs and computer trolleys. Even so, Daly says, certain styles and fibers are inherently more serviceable, whether they are called residential or commercial. Look for branded nylon or New Zealand wool.

CAPS AND CROWNS Fillings, caps and crowns, and perhaps some bridgework are probably a part of your life experience. I'm talking about the modern restoration of chipped, discolored, worn down, poorly shaped, badly decayed, or partially destroyed tooth to its natural appearance and function. A crown is commonly known as a cap. It is prepared and fitted over a defective tooth, but looks as lifelike, feels as comfortable, and functions as well as a healthy natural tooth. Crowns are made of a variety of materials. Porcelain crowns are primarily used on the front teeth. They can hardly be distinguished from natural teeth. With today's dentistry, there Is no reason to have unsightly or malformed front teeth. "Capping" gives the equivalent of a face-lift with renewed encouragement to smile. You can see the results of capping on almost any TV show that employs actors and actresses. *** . ! Prepared as a public service to promote better dental health. SALINA DENTAL ASSOCIATES Harry J.
