The teeth are the icebergs of the skeletal system, tiny exposed tips that represent the body’s massive concealed support structure. Today’s Groupon ensures your bones’ spokesperson sparkles: for $99, you get four teeth-whitening sessions in one visit at Active Dental in Grand Prairie and Irving (a $495 value).
Active Dental actively restores oral enamel to its former glory with a variety of dental services. The experienced staff, led by Drs. Kalpesh Patel and Jason Strickland, invites patrons to recline in HDTV–equipped chairs for approximately one-hour Pola whitening procedures, which begin with a recording of tooth color for posterity’s sake. A cleaning may be recommended before a protective resin barrier covers gums and hydrogen peroxide gel is applied to carrot cutters for 8–10 minutes. A special light may then be shone into the mouth, and office staff may perform their own rendition of A Christmas Carol. Gel is suctioned off, and the process is repeated for jealous neighboring teeth three more times. Results are immediate, and after the one-visit treatment, clients are welcome to relax for a moment in the reception area of one of Active Dental's newly built offices to accept compliments from the framed wall art, mounted flat-screen TVs, and curvy glass coffee tables.
If there is one word that describes Active Dental, it is modern. The Baylor College of Dentistry–trained doctors at each of the two practices scan teeth with digital x-rays, display cavities on chair-side flat-screen TVs using intra-oral cameras, and light up their work with Helios technology, LED dental rays designed to focus on mouths instead of shining in eyes.
