Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Orthodontists at the five participating locations are 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, will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths 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 $3,500 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.

Dr. Edwina Evangelista, a member of the American Dental Association, aligns and lightens clients' teeth. Using a series of ClearCorrect aligners, specialists straighten teeth gradually and covertly without resorting to archaic methods such as having clients chew on repurposed kindergarteners' rulers. First, doctors send impressions, photos, and x-rays to ClearCorrect, which then creates exact 3-D models of grills and maps out complete treatment plans before employing an arsenal of computers to create custom aligners. Patients wear their aligners all the time, except while eating, drinking, brushing, flossing, and growling at bears. Periodic checkups throughout the process ensure that the process is proceeding smoothly.
