A gleaming smile can be a double-edged sword, like when it procures you 37 hot dates in one night or blinds all five members of your personal fan club. Help your smile operate on only the best intentions with today's Groupon: for $149, you get a Zoom! teeth whitening and a take-home whitening kit at Babin Dentistry (a $595 value), located on Chatterton Way.
White Smile BC's teeth-whitening technician W.M. James Rolston has helped increase the smile wattage of more than 9,000 individuals. During his chair-side treatments, he slathers teeth in one of two levels of whitening solution—either a carbamide peroxide– or hydrogen peroxide–based formula—that causes minimal to no sensitivity. Next, he uses a blue-LED lighting system to activate the whitening process, with long-lasting results that can be seen quickly. Much like snarling at the sun, White Smile BC's treatment leaves teeth shining up to eight shades brighter in just 20 minutes.
Shelley J. Smith is at the helm of Pearl Teeth Whitening Spa's team of dental hygienists, who specialize in gentle and even bleaching. Shelley found that whitening strips and trays conform poorly to the teeth and, like a drunken house painter, leave some spots whiter than others. The imprecise systems also tend to irritate the gums. Instead, Shelley and the team use a small brush to apply the whitening gel, avoiding gums while restoring every enamel crevice to a white that match's the dental spa's immaculate decor.
The technicians at Ilaaj Clinic skip over unproven skin creams in favour of Obagi's and AFA's clinically tested skincare products, which they use to combat signs of aging, rosacea, pigmentation, and acne. They also turn to Canada White Smile products to brighten teeth. During these treatments, clients recline for 20-30 minutes as the brightening solution erases stains caused by wine, tobacco, and Sharpies.
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 $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
