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.
The doctors at Young Family Dental have been polishing premolars and buffing bicuspids for 40 years. First, a clinician will carefully and gently exam patients' mouth bones (a $48 value) to make sure everything is in top condition before gently padding mouths with x-ray bitewings to capture memories that keep skeleton scrapbooks up to date (a $32 value). Once these details are underway, the dentist will shine up teeth to a cleaner resplendence (a $71 value) and send patients home with professional home teeth whitening kits (a $100 value) that include up to 21 treatments that can make skin appear tanner and dark broom closets seem brighter. Rookie clients will be asked to fill out new patient forms prior to their dental debut.
Dr. Burns and Dr. Jenkins have DDS degrees from the Temple University Kornberg School of Dentistry and the Indiana University School of Dentistry, respectively, and they put that professional training to use at Platinum Dental Care. The doctors work tirelessly to keep up with changes in dental medicine, adopting new techniques and technologies—such as implants—as they develop. While both practitioners promote oral health with a variety of cosmetic and rehabilitative dental procedures including teeth whitening, veneers, and fillings, Dr. Burns focuses on saving teeth through full-mouth rehabilitation and by depositing extra teeth into a piggy bank. Dr. Burns also has a degree in psychology, which helps him empathize with patients and mitigate their concern over dental care.
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.
