When they're examining teeth, the trio of dentists at Premiere Dental Care Center aren't just thinking about the mouth?they're thinking about the rest of the patient, too. That's because they recognize the relationship between oral health and the body. During consultations, they explain how stress can cause cavities, plaque can lead to heart problems, and loose lips can sink ships. Then they meticulously examine teeth in search of decay and other ailments, taking into account activities that can impede oral health, such as smoking.
Armed with a degree in microbiology from the University of Florida, Dr. Pablo J Fonseca combines his fascination with small worlds with a passion for big smiles. The 25-year veteran works closely with his team members, many of whom dedicate thousands of hours to continuing education classes. Together, the group performs both general and cosmetic services as well as emergency dentistry for those with chipped teeth or a feeling that the tooth fairy is overstaying her welcome.
Dr. Herrmann, founder and dentist of Assure a Smile, has been polishing and maintaining the toothy smiles of his patients for more than 20 years. Misaligned teeth can see the error of their crooked ways with an Invisalign exam, a comprehensive assessment that scrutinizes teeth from every angle with a tell-all x-ray. After the exam, patients are given full information on the Invisalign system specific to their dental health, and are invited to sport the no metal, no wire braces with a $1,000 discount, keeping wallets heavy and incisors free from high-interest bicuspid bank loans.
Invisalign straightens crooked teeth 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 paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift pearly whited into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $3,750 to $7,800); this Groupon gets you $7,800 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of 6–15 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw.
Within a soothing spa setting filled with modern technology, Elite Dental Group restores gleam to Cheshire grins via the Zoom! method of laser tooth illumination. Experienced fang-wranglers perform this in-office artistry, first bedaubing teeth with a special paste. Next, Lilliputian stain fighters bombard sullied smiles with squirt guns as a laser waltzes gracefully across cusps, activating chemicals that restore whiteness and make proud papa lasers weep. The one-hour treatment results in mild, temporary sensitivity, while purity may persist for up to four years, depending on the client's use of coffee, tobacco, tea, wine, and foul language.
