Alpenglow Dental's team of five practitioners—all Utah natives—track down the latest research and employ modern technology to maintain oral health at four local practices. Their spectrum of services encompasses many mouth-based needs, whether patients seek a regular cleaning or need veneers to conceal misaligned teeth. ClearCorrect invisible braces use removable aligners instead of metal wires for straighter smiles and more intimidating growls. The dentists are also able to lift stains from age, coffee consumption, and smoking with whitening treatments.
Each of Professional Dental’s dentists attends lectures, conventions, and classes to further their knowledge of new techniques and cutting-edge technology. They put this knowledge to use during cosmetic and restorative procedures at 10 clinics with extended and weekend hours. At the start of appointments, the dentists thoroughly review the patient’s medical history for anything that could impact health. During the treatments, movies help distract patrons or allow them to watch the scary parts of The Adventures of Milo and Otis with an unshakeable doctor.
The founders of Direct White and Brighter Image teamed up more than 10 years ago to form a three-step, at-home teeth-whitening system. Inside their storefronts, skilled techs outfit clients with custom-fit bleaching trays. At the worldwide lab, similarly skilled techs craft custom-fit bleaching trays from at-home impression kits. The trays' snug tooth caps are trimmed along the gum line, which helps to prevent burning of gums and can provide a more consistent whitening than bulkier trays. Bleaching-gel pens supplement each kit, providing easy touchups that break down stains left behind by wine, tobacco, and gnawing on coffee mugs.
Say “cheese-drenched-reconstituted-meatloaf” at Stonehaven Dental, where periodontal detectives will peep around crowned corners with tiny mirrors, decode the molar code with teeth tapping, and get to the root of any issue with x-ray vision. After your exam, you'll receive customized take-home whitening trays to shade shift your teeth, along with detailed instructions for your at-home regimen—typically, patients insert trays daily for the first few days and then once a week as needed thereafter. The staff will happily answer questions about the treatment or about hairstyles popular with baseball players in the '70s.
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.
American Fork Dental Center’s Dr. Rosvall brings mouths back from the brink of the dark side with smile-saving whitening procedures. At the beginning of each session, Dr. Rosvall consults with each patient, discussing the procedure’s parameters, expected whitening results, and the Tooth Fairy’s current exchange rates. Tarnished teeth bathe in a bleaching substance calibrated to break up stains, fade discoloration, and jolt amnesiac teeth back to their pearly old selves. Patients relax throughout the bicuspid-brightening process, plotting their new smile’s debut from the cushiony arms of the office’s exam chairs. After the procedure, Dr. Rosvall sends glowing grins home with a set of bleaching trays and gel that aid in future touch-ups and give an air of authenticity to basement replicas of a dentist’s office.
