Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. Orthodontists at the five participating locations are specially trained and certified in the Invisalign process, which eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $3,500 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.

Laughing youngsters huddle in a play area as adults sip warm lattes nearby and check their email at an Internet bar. Individually mounted TVs, heated pillows, and video-game rooms keep patients entertained and at ease in each of DFW Family Dentistry’s seven offices. Every office shares the same focus on patient comfort, and they stay open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for appointments before school, after work, or before nightly werewolf hunts. DFW Family Dentistry stands behind its dentists' work with a three-year warranty for issues such as chipped fillings.
Dr. Scott Staffel and his friendly staff maintain chomper health through a vast array of dental services. During the examination, mouths participate in a series of impressions, which help to forge custom take-home trays that patients will fill with whitening bleach or pureed light bulbs to help brighten smiles for the next six months. A skilled technician then snaps a series of full mouth x-rays to reveal the hidden goings-on of roots and otherwise undetectable decay. In the absence of periodontal involvement, a hygienist thoroughly scrubs tusks in a flurry of floss and foam, bathing away unsightly plaque and tartar. After intraoral photos, Dr. Staffel begins a thorough examination and delves into mouth caves in search of oral cancers, tooth decay, and recalcitrant gummy worms. Dr. Staffel's Whitening for Life program ensures that his smile-savvy staff continues to replenish stocks of whitening gel each time the patient reschedules.
Dental pros detail teeth with general and cosmetic treatments at the practice's two locations. Staff members are guided by a commitment revamping smiles in a professional, efficient, and caring manner, and are fluent in both English and Spanish. Extended weekday and Saturday hours suit working clients, and same-day emergency care provides immediate treatments when a molar's tennis elbow flares up.
Dr. Edwina Evangelista, a member of the American Dental Association, aligns and lightens clients' teeth. Using a series of ClearCorrect aligners, specialists straighten teeth gradually and covertly without resorting to archaic methods such as having clients chew on repurposed kindergarteners' rulers. First, doctors send impressions, photos, and x-rays to ClearCorrect, which then creates exact 3-D models of grills and maps out complete treatment plans before employing an arsenal of computers to create custom aligners. Patients wear their aligners all the time, except while eating, drinking, brushing, flossing, and growling at bears. Periodic checkups throughout the process ensure that the process is proceeding smoothly.
