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.
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.

Ron Haynes and his daughter, Jessie, have built a business from smiling faces. They don't snap yearbook photos or transform dentist gloves into balloon animals. Instead, they helm teeth-whitening shops that brighten smiles in 20 minutes. Since 2005, they have brightened over 50,000 smiles annually across five states. The locations in North Carolina offer either convenience at their South Park Mall kiosk or privacy at their office locations. Armed with Beaming White, a special light activated gel teeth-whitening system that pairs a peroxide-based gel with a UV-free LED light, their team of technicians helps clients brighten their choppers with an applicator pen. An applicator pen exposes the teeth so the gel and light reach every inch of enamel. Once the light unites with the gel, coffee, tea, and grass stains begin to vanish. Teeth continue to lighten after the treatment, achieving a color that's 3-7 shades whiter over the course of 24 hours. With proper care, results can last up to 12 months, or roughly the time it takes to adapt the phonebook into a comedic opera.
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.
In their daily quest to promote dental health, Dr. James E. Lemmons and his staff adhere to strict safety standards from OSHA, the ADA, and the CDC when performing general, restorative, or cosmetic treatments. Dr. Lemmons is a strong proponent of preventive care and patient education. Not content to merely treat dental issues after the fact, he strives to head off tooth decay with thorough examinations, routine cleanings, and by not condoning the use of licorice ropes for flossing.
