Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. The process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.
Desai Dental Care's Dr. Chetna K. Desai touts more than 20 years of tooth-soothing experience, beautifying mouthscapes with advanced brightening technology. The in-office Power Bleach teeth whitening blasts away smile blemishes in about an hour, imbuing dull, stained, tie-dyed, or discolored chompers with an ivory gleam. Dentally adept incisor artists apply a protective gel or rubber shield to gums, and then slather tooth formations with a bleaching agent. Special light beams then bathe bicuspids, inspiring the bleach's peroxide to whiten teeth five to seven shades, cutting through discoloration caused by age, coffee, or tobacco products. Due to their impenetrable, half-robot nature, dental accessories, such as crowns, bridges, and fillings do not bleach.
Continuing-education courses keep Dr. Edward Sharkey abreast of the latest innovations in the fields of periodontal, surgical, and cosmetic dental care.

When he’s not treating patients at his clinic, Dr. Sharkey also serves on the surgical staff at Howard County General Hospital and donates his scuba-diving skills to the National Aquarium in Baltimore.
