The Invisalign process strives to straighten crooked chompers without braces, instead opting for removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and doctor consultation, is used to create a 3-D model of mouth terrain, which paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths 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 $4,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost.
Although Dr. Leo T. Leins of Lone Tree Dental Associates is truly a family dentist, his skills aren't limited to doing fillings and explaining why you should never brush with chocolate syrup. He has trained extensively throughout his 25-year career during continuing-education courses, specializing in areas such as implantology, orthodontics, and cosmetic techniques. In addition to keeping himself up to date, he has outfitted his office with the most modern tools, such as tooth-colored fillings and panoramic x-ray equipment.
Using a combination of whitening gel and FDA-approved blue accelerating lights, the DaVinci teeth-whitening system can leave teeth an average of up to eight shades whiter. During office visits, clients apply the signature whitening solution—an organic plant- and mineral-based gel—to chompers. A specially designed LED laser light is used with the food-grade hydrogen peroxide gel to lift lingering stains. Once the tonal transformation is complete, patients may walk away with the graffiti of tobacco, wine, coffee, and age erased from their smiles. To continue the process, Davinci also produces a take-home personal whitening kit that includes 12 gel applications, an LED accelerator light, custom-fitted trays, and remineralizing and desensitizing gel to care for enamel.
