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 exam, including a CT scan, photos, diagnostic records, and an oral examination, 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 $4,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
Fueled by a passion for people and a devotion to keeping up with current technologies, Dr. Nancy Tran leads a personable staff in brightening slouchy smiles. At the first of two appointments, patients present their dull chompers to staffers who then take impressions. The impressions are used to create custom whitening trays, which can be used as mouth guards during thumb-wrestling matches. During the second appointment, smiles are united with their cog covers and clients are sent home with a carbamide-peroxide gel solution designed to lighten teeth and chewed up lace doilies two–four shades.
A take-home teeth-whitening treatment from Wichita Family Dental is a safe, easy, and effective way to brighten dingy teeth. One of the dental professionals—most likely Dr. Pierson, Dr. Windle, or Dr. Begnoche—will evaluate your teeth before taking an impression to create custom fitting trays. Then, after ensuring the trays fit on your teeth like a wetsuit on a portly linebacker, you'll be ready to administer the whitening agent. This not-so-secret agent will rip through stains accumulated from various foodstuffs, drinks, natural aging, and unnatural rituals involving squid ink and asphalt. Much like owning a child, results can last several years, and it's recommended you tend to your whitened teeth every 6–12 months with some sort of preventive care. Wichita Family Dental uses the statiest-of-artiest equipment along with comfortable furniture and plush surroundings to make every patient comfortable and excited to display his or her newly gleaming mouthgate.
There's nothing more annoying than being on time for your dentist appointment, only to sit around and wait for the doctor. Luckily, this isn't an issue at Maui Whitening: you can check in for an appointment online and a technician will have a room ready for you upon arrival. That's because the treatments are self-administered, so there's no waiting for a specialist. Each Maui Whitening location has professional grade FDA-registered gel and LED accelerator light that, when used together, can whiten teeth up to 10 shades. Sessions last 20-, 40-, or 60-minutes, depending on how white you want your teeth to be, and many clients make 2?3 appointments in order to see the full effects. Not only has this process been shown to be effective at lifting tobacco and food stains, but it also works to erase yellowing caused by certain medicines, heredity, or a propensity for gargling with hollandaise.
Even though he’s been practicing general dentistry for over three decades, Dr. Ted Milligan still studies like a student. Though his membership to professional organizations including the American Dental Association, Kansas Dental Association, and Academy of General Dentistry might keep him busy, it also keeps him sharp, cluing him in to advances within his specialties. Dr. Milligan and his staff treat mouths to a full range of dental care, from preventive maintenance and cosmetic treatments to smile-changing implants and endodontic work. He also stocks his office with the latest dental technologies, revealing secret trouble spots with safe digital x-rays or taking an intimate look at fillings, decay, or molar tattoos with the help of an intraoral camera.
