The revolutionary Invisalign treatment gradually straightens teeth with a series of clear plastic retainers, eliminating the need for cumbersome medal braces and wardrobes designed around colored rubber bands. The initial Invisalign consultation includes an exam ($79), x-rays ($96), photos ($50), and a full dental impression ($100). You'll also receive an additional $1,000 discount on the total Invisalign treatment.

The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies for each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $6,000); this Groupon gets you $1000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
