Like glaciers and tectonic plates, teeth are slowly yet surely on the move as they attempt to turn their host’s mouth into frozen tundra and then rip it apart like a bite-size Pangaea. Defeat devious teeth with today’s Groupon: for $2,999, you get a complete Invisalign treatment package at Tribeca Dental Care (up to a $7,980 value). The package includes:
- An examination (a $30 value)
- X-rays (a $100 value)
- Impressions (a $120 value)
- Up to 15 months of follow-up Invisalign care (up to a $7,730 value)
Dr. Alla Dorfman and a team of trained tooth techs at Tribeca Dental Care straighten crooked chompers with Invisalign, a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment.

Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of 6–15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw.
Dr. Dorfman was always so gentle and patient with me. The staff is absolutely lovely and very accomodating.CC B., Yelp, 7/12/11
