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.
Dr. Wesley D. Clement has been in the ophthalmology business for more than 35 years but has been focusing exclusively on laser-refractive surgeries since 2001. At Carolinas Eye Center, he draws upon this specialized expertise as he clears blurry vision with LASIK and PRK procedures. His two surgical technician sidekicks have assisted Dr. Clemente in thousands of these corrective treatments that have left just as many pairs of glasses heartbroken.
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. Their backgrounds in dental surgery enable them to expertly handle root canals and extractions, and their knowledge of Invisalign orthodontia helps them inconspicuously straighten out wayward teeth without metal braces or barks from a boot-camp drill sergeant. 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.
Under the leadership of founder Christie Shumate, the licensed aestheticians at Transformations Spa and Skin Care Center perform custom skin treatments with detailed analysis. Shumate was inspired to form Transformations Spa and Skin Care Center after paying a visit to a plastic surgeon who, she discovered, donated his summer months to helping those who couldn't otherwise afford treatment to recover from burns, as well as working with children who were born with facial defects. She brought together a collection of less-risky aesthetic services designed to help her clients look and feel good about themselves, and now her staff offers laser cellulite reduction, custom facials, organic chemical peels, ear candling, and aqua foot detox.
