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 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 is a flat fee of $5,000; this Groupon gets you $1,000 toward that final cost. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
The My Premier Dental Group of America dental network links patients to private practices throughout the Pacific Northwest. All the dental professionals within this network independently own their practices and are trained in the latest technologies. They perform everything from preventative checkups to maintain oral health, porcelain veneers to correct smiles, and sleep-apnea-device fittings to help patients sleep better than a baby who just completed his taxes.
Developed in collaboration with cosmetic dentist Dr. Christian Yaste, Glam White is an at-home tooth-whitening product designed to deliver expedient results with minimum sensitivity. The carbamide-peroxide gel is made from natural, organic ingredients, and is used in all of Glam White's products. There are three take-home kits to choose from and a tooth polishing and whitening kit, as well as an on-the-go pen perfect for touching up recently whitened teeth or paper that's only yellowed in certain spots.
At Downtown Dental Care, Drs. Lance D. Bailey and Kirk Christianson combine their years of experience in general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry in an office with a compassion-oriented philosophy. The doctors demonstrate their commitment to patients by participating in not-for-profit dentistry as well as such charitable organizations such as UNICEF, Pride Northwest, and Donated Dentistry, a clinic that administers free dental care for patients without insurance.
The doctors also devote themselves to continually honing their craft. Dr. Bailey cares for kids through his training in pediatric dentistry and for seniors with his advanced education in dentures. His training in laser dentistry, IV sedation, and CEREC one-visit crowns keeps him on the cutting edge of the industry. Meanwhile, Dr. Christianson’s advanced skills restore smiles beyond just the teeth with hard and soft tissue grafting and sinus surgery.
The team works to keep patients comfortable during each treatment. Every patient who wanders through the door, or chews their way through the wall, gets treated as an individual. The doctors thoroughly explain each treatment in order to reduce anxiety. During treatments, patients can keep tabs on the outside world with a flat-panel television and a broad window, both situated in front of the operatory chair.
The continually educated mouth specialists of Sunshine Dental keep smiles healthy with a tag team of preventative dentistry and modern technology. During the appointment, a licensed dentist scours the mouth for signs of decay, cavities, and lost gummy bears (a $97 value) with an attention to detail normally only exhibited by pickleball referees. X-rays, including four bitewings, an extraoral, and a panoramic (a $234 total value), allow the certified tooth whisperer to inspect cuisine crushers in greater depth in a set of black-and-white snapshots. Take-home whitening treatments evict the yellow from teeth with stain-fighting bleach and a sheriff-delivered court order. Mouths that return dutifully to the dental office every six months for a checkup receive additional treatments for free.
