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. Candace Cole, D.D.S., may have extensive dental experience from her time serving as a dentist for the United States Navy, but it’s her ingrained sense of Southern hospitality that makes her clients feel most comfortable. Since returning from deployment in Iraq, she has only continued her training in orthodontics, TMJ dysfunction, and implant dentistry. All of this informs her practice at Smilestones Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, where she also performs teeth whitening and general dental procedures such as routine cleanigns, sealants, wisdom-teeth removal, crowns, and bridges.
Dr. Larry Compton fixes problematic teeth with his sharp dentistry skills and technology. He uses a special computerized anesthesia system that numbs one tooth at a time, which diminishes excessive numbness and the typical drooling that occurs with other anesthesia methods. A soft-tissue laser helps Dr. Compton remove diseased patches without the need for a scalpel or stitches. When he’s not fixing smiles in the office, Dr. Compton shares his extensive knowledge with others during seminars and long waits at the DMV.
A cleaning, exam, and x-ray packs more of a healthful wallop than a bucket of free-range, grass-fed mung-bean sprouts, especially if your idea of a daily brushing is a mouthful of sand and a hot hose of water from a Super Soaker. During the exam, a dentist checks each tooth and gum for signs of damage, before x-rays pry into the deepest secrets of the toothroots to expose cracks, cavities, and calorie embezzlement. A professional teeth cleaning then blasts away all plaque and tartar, leaving teeth sparkling and pristine.
Since graduating in 1994 from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill School of Dentistry, general dentist Dr. Chris Bowman has made his home in Charlotte, where his practice, Advanced Dentistry of Charlotte, continues to brighten smiles. In addition to regular cleanings and family visits, Dr. Bowman places special emphasis on in cosmetic dentistry and invisible orthodontics, restoring crooked smiles to a straight, immaculate state. His experience has earned him the status of Clinical Instructor and Mentor for Six Month Smiles while providing Invisalign treatment for more than 13 years as well. Dr. Bowman also provides sedation dentistry, dental implants, the new Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation procedure for receding gums, and oral appliance treatment for obstructive sleep apnea.
Zoom teeth-whitening treatments whiten teeth by up to 8?10 shades in one session, and custom-made whitening trays allow patients to polish their own chompers at home within about two weeks. To ensure the latest in dental techniques and services, Dr. Bowman attends an average of 100 hours of continuing education a year?far surpassing the state-mandated 15 push-ups.
