Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Three different practices feature orthodontists specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process, which 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 ($325), 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 $4,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.

Dr. Namita T. Chaudhary graduated magna cum laude from the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, and her specialized education and experience with patrons of all ages shine through during general, cosmetic, and restorative treatments. After sessions, she calls her patients to check up on them and provides her personal cell-phone number so they can ask questions and check if her refrigerator is running. The staff keeps up with the practice's technology by attending courses and seminars, which prepare them to use a laser cavity-detection tool and a ViziLite oral-cancer screen. Sandwiched comfortably between the treatment chair and a toasty blanket, guests open wide while watching movies, or listening to music and taking in the window's sweeping view.
A quest for continued education is what fueled Dr. Ivory Hancock's rise from dental student to CEO. In the years after graduating with a doctorate degree from Temple University’s School of Dentistry, she became chief resident at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center in New York City and later studied advanced aesthetic dentistry at the Rosenthal Institute at New York University. Today, as CEO of Presidential Dental Group, she and her experienced team schedule preventive, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry services that range from routine cleanings to Invisalign teeth straightening. But what may be most striking about Dr. Hancock's office, perhaps, is her team's commitment to patient comfort and dental technology. Each location pampers patients with aromatherapy, blankets, and warm towels, and employs advanced tools such as diode lasers, digital impressions, and entertaining holograms of straight, white teeth dancing.
The teeth-whitening technicians at Smiling Bright help customers forge whiter smiles with professional-strength in-office and at-home treatments. Cool gray walls and rich, mulberry-toned ceilings envelop Smiling Bright's inviting interior, accented with undulating mirrors, a sleek leather sofa, and private, curtain-drawn treatment rooms. In-office sparkle sessions outfit chompers with a tray preloaded with clinical-strength whitening gel, after which an LED light activates peroxide molecules to coax out stains and nesting yellow finches obscuring the enamel. Smiling Bright's specialty at-home X Cell Erator whitening system comes equipped with the same powerful gel as the in-office treatments, along with a battery-operated whitening light, a list of tips and instructions, and a shade guide to assess how much teeth have improved and whether to ground them from after-school privileges.
