Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with 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, photos, 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. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $3,500 to $6,800); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
The grin curators at Bleach Bright Smiles, armed with safe BleachBright gel, clear mouthpieces, and blue-light-emission LED lights, set out to whiten tooth collections by two to eight shades. Under a precisely calibrated glow, a carbamide peroxide solution attacks evidence of coffee, bilberry wine, and permanent markers that have scuffed dental façades over time. After about half an hour, you'll be ready to go home and illuminate the room with your smile during power outages and solar eclipses.
A cleaning, exam, and x-ray packs more of a healthful wallop than a bucket of free-range, grass-fed mung-bean sprouts, especially if your idea of a daily brushing is a mouthful of sand and a hot hose of water from a Super Soaker. During the exam, a dentist checks each tooth and gum for signs of damage, before x-rays pry into the deepest secrets of the toothroots to expose cracks, cavities, and calorie embezzlement. A professional teeth cleaning then blasts away all plaque and tartar, leaving teeth sparkling and pristine.
Smile Splendor's 45- to 60-minute safe and effective teeth metamorphosis begins with an application of hydrogen-peroxide-powered gel before moving on to Smile Splendor's patented tanning bed for teeth, a gentle blue light targeting unwanted stains. The gel application and light process is repeated two more times, which increases whiteness by up to eight shades, while guests relax, read, or watch TV programs showing other people reading. For coffee drinkers or people who dive on grass fields with their mouth open, a quick draw with Smile Splendor's touch-up whitening pen will help you maintain the results of your whitening treatment.
Captained by 21-year dental practice veteran Dr. John T. Walsh, the Dentistry of the Carolinas network of multispecialty dentists performs a full range of services, with some locations providing cosmetic whitening and dental implants.

The team also performs a range of basic services, including routine cleanings that free teeth of hardened tartar and plaque, fillings, root canals, extractions, dentures and partials. Customers can contact their desired location for a full list of services.
